Cutting the Cloud Computing Carbon Cost

September 12, 2014 5:18 pm | by Inderscience Publishers | News | Comments

Cloud computing involves displacing data storage and processing from the user's computer on to remote servers. It can provide users with more storage space and computing power that they can then access from anywhere in the world rather than having to connect to a single desktop or other computer with its finite resources...

New Species of Electrons Can Lead to Better Computing

September 12, 2014 5:11 pm | by University of Manchester | News | Comments

Researchers report a material in which electrons move at a controllable angle to applied fields, similar to sailboats driven diagonally to the wind. The material is graphene – one atom-thick chicken wire made from carbon – but with a difference. It is transformed to a new so-called superlattice state by placing it on top of boron nitride...
