Intel has lifted the wrappers on a 10GBase-t network adapter which sports a pair of 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports. The X52-T2 adapter would be the first to have two ports on a single adapter.
Designed for servers, the PCI-Express card will support connection distances of up to 100 meters. In its press release Intel said that by placing a pair of ports on the card, administrators will have a redundant connection in case anything went bang.
It means that administrators can pair the connections to create a single pipeline running at 20GbE speeds.
Apple may have a fight on its hands for the iPad trademark, according to a report.
The New York Times reported Thursday that Fujitsu Ltd. believes it owns the rights to the iPad name, based on a real-time, portable inventory-management device called the iPAD, that debuted in 2002, and received an update in 2006.
The Fujitsu version of the iPad is a point-of-sale device, running the PXA 270 processor with Microsoft Windows CE .NET 5.0, together with a 802.11 b/g radio and Bluetooth v1.2, according to Fujitsu.

Currently, our Comcast High-Speed Internet Service (CHSI) uses Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addresses, such as 192.168.1.1. The supply of IPv4 addresses is limited and will eventually be exhausted. As a result, in order for the Internet to continue to grow, ISPs and other organizations need to transition to IP version 6 (IPv6) addresses, which take a very different form, such as 2001:0db8:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf.
Comcast has been a leader in IPv6 development for over 5 years.
The Department of Energy and IBM are serious about developing lithium air batteries capable of powering a car for 500 miles on a single charge - a five-fold increase over current plug-in batteries that have a range of about 40 to 100 miles, the DOE said.
The agency said 24 million hours of supercomputing time out of a total of 1.6 billion available hours at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Laboratories will be used by IBM and a team of researchers from those labs and Vanderbilt University to design new materials required for a lithium air battery.
The unveiling of Apple Inc.'s iPad renews a classic gadget debate: Do consumers want purpose-built devices that do one thing and one thing well, or all-in-one wonders that try to accomplish many different tasks?
Amazon.com Inc. proved that there is a market for a single-purpose digital-books reader with its Kindle, which features a black and white E Ink Corp. screen that's supposed to be easy on the eyes and battery—but doesn't do much more than show words on a page.
Samsung Electronics announced Wednesday it had started mass production of screens for 3D LED TVs and 3D LCD TVs, a bold move forward in a technology some analysts say is too expensive for most people and could take time to become mainstream.
Samsung is the world's largest maker of flat display screens, and putting new technologies into mass production is the first step in lowering prices. The more a company makes, the less they cost per-unit.
"Recently, 3D displays have captured the industry spotlight.
On the first day of CES, I dropped by the Qualcomm booth looking for ARM-based smartbooks to try out. As I poked and prodded the Lenovo Skylight, I pulled out my Nexus One and dropped it on top of the unit for a size reference so that we could snap picture of it. As I stood there looking at the phone laying on top of the smartbook and contemplating the fact that both of these (Android-based) devices had 1GHz, ARM-based Snapdragon processors in them, I glanced across the booth and spotted an ARM-based game console sitting right next to the ARM-based iRex Iliad e-reader.
According to IDC researchers, AMD has done a rather good job in 2009 and managed to steal back part of its lost market share from Intel. AMD's share has been shrinking for several quarters, due to a lack of competitive products, but it seems new processors offered at tempting prices managed to rekindle interest.
IDC reports x86 processor demand grew by record levels in Q4 2009, as shipments jumped by 31.1 percent sequentially. During the same quarter, AMD managed to recover some of its lost share. Intel's market share was 80.5 percent, while AMD managed to grab 19.4 percent.
