IBM silicon nanophotonics speeds servers with 25Gbps light

IBM has developed a light-based data transfer system delivering more than 25Gbps per channel, opening the door to chip-dense slabs of processing power that could speed up server performance, the internet, and more. The company's research into silicon integrated nanophotonics addresses concerns that interconnects between increasingly powerful computers, such as mainframe servers, are unable to keep up with the speeds of the computers themselves. Instead of copper or even optical cables, IBM envisages on-chip optical routing, where light blasts data between dense, multi-layer computing hubs.

Apple named Most Innovative Company of 2012 by Booz & Co

Apple named Most Innovative Company of 2012 by Booz & Co

In their yearly list of most innovative companies in the world, the folks at analytical group Booz & Co. found with a survey of participants that Apple was the most innovative group - for the third year running. This year it appears that Apple made a substantial lead increase over either of its previous years in the lead, with a massive near-80-percent of respondents naming Apple as one of the most innovative companies in the world. This number is up from 70 percent of those questioned last year.

AT&T’s team up with IBM is exactly the jolt “the cloud” needs

AT&T’s team up with IBM is exactly the jolt “the cloud” needs

If you're hesitant to work with your data stored in this ephemeral location called "the cloud", you're not alone - but AT&T and IBM have announced a team-up today that'll send a shock through the market that'll have masses of users converting. When you've got a new technology - or any technology that people may be hesitant to use in general - your best bet in making people adopt it is to prove to them that it's reliable at the same time as it is either fun or helpful to use. To do that you need brand power and better yet, cross-brand power like AT&T and IBM are demonstrating this week.

IBM scientists first to differentiate the chemical bonds in individual molecules using AFM

IBM has announced that its scientists have been able to differentiate the chemical bonds in individual molecules for the first time via a technique called non-contact atomic force microscopy (AFM). The breakthrough has significant implications for the technology world. According to IBM, the breakthrough will help push the exploration of using molecules and atoms at a smaller scale and can be an important step for studying graphene devices.
