Illustration of the preferred magnetic orientation of an iron atom on a specially prepared...

IBM today announced two major scientific achievements in the field of nanotechnology that could one day lead to new kinds of devices and structures built from a few atoms or molecules. Such Lilliputian, atomic-scale devices might be used as future computer chips, storage devices, sensors and for applications nobody has imagined yet. The work will be unveiled tomorrow in two reports being published by the journal Science. In the first report, IBM scientists describe major progress in probing a property called magnetic anisotropy in individual atoms. This fundamental measurement has important technological consequences because it determines an atom’s ability to store information. Previously, nobody had been able to measure the magnetic anisotropy of a single atom.  Read More

Sony releases new open format digital media players and kills ATRAC format

Sony today announced two new series of digital media players that will use MP3, AAC and WMA formats, at the same time as announcing it will discontinue use of the ATRAC format and begin closing its Connect online Music store in March 2008. Sony’s role as a music distributor has long compromised its position as a manufacturer of digital media players and the long-time stand-off between the two arms of the Japanese giant that threatened to make its digital music players irrelevant is over as it seeks to make up lost ground in the booming market created by digital file sharing over the internet. Ironically, though it can now compete on an even playing field with the likes of Apple’s iPod, one wonders what the consequences of abandoning its loyalest customers will do to the market’s perceptions of the famous Walkman brand.  Read More

Garmin Edge's new killer apps for cyclists – wireless route sharing and SRM power compatib...

The humble cycling computer is fast approaching the realms of scifi in its ability to deliver real-time critical information to the cyclist and Garmin’s announcement today of the Edge 705 and Edge 605 deliver … well, short of blood testing, everything we can think of. The range-topping 705 is an integrated personal training system with a 2.2” colour display providing mapping capabilities, street navigation and it tracks vertical profiles, climb and descent, altitude, speed, distance, time, cadence and heart rate. But wait, this is the clincher – through collaborative efforts with SRM, it will also monitor power output on the same display. Not satisfied yet? The 705 also enables users to share their information – including courses, waypoints and workouts – with other users through ANT+Sport wireless technology.  Read More
