Yet another advanced compact disc recording format which made a valiant attempt at deposing both conventionally recorded compact discs as well as Sony's SACDs was the format, xrcd. Although SACD seems to have a slight edge on xrcd, this relatively obscure format continues to sell.
Bright Idea - Just so no one missed the fact that Intel's Craig Barrett was talking about another bright idea that the company's engineering teams had developed the events folks put him in front of a light bulb. It didn't work because we could barely see the itty-bitty device he held in his hand at the opening of IDF this year. Source -- Intel
Work or Play - Everyone expects their monitor to instantly refresh. They demand that the graphics to be lightning fast as well as ultra-realistic. Of course that also needs to be wrapped in a low-cost, environmentally kindly system. When all of this doesn't come together we're a little concerned.
Look At That Stuff - Storage folks made it through last year - just barely - delivering enough capacity that just met everyone's/everything's needs. But man if you look out on the horizon - and beyond - it looks hairy. Even having people working round the clock the content tsunami will just keep boring down on us.

An aging population with rising incidence of chronic conditions is a threat to the global healthcare system. Each month, the world's elderly population increases by 795,000. In countries such as Japan, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Italy, and Spain, the elderly outnumber the children. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, congestive heart failure, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) unfortunately come with age and can lead to deteriorating quality-of-life standards. These chronic diseases are not only major causes of death but also among the most costly to treat and cure.

This TIP is a little different. it's not a how-to tip, it's a "get you thinking" tip. It's about a technology opportunity that has been a personal interest of mine for a long time: solar energy generation at the home. This stuff has become very interesting lately and worth your time to take a look.
I get most of my ideas for tips from what you don't know much about. In each of my home network courses, I always spend a little time on how to provide VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephone service to the customer via the home network. If you'reinstalling home networks, VoIP is a no-brainer. It turns out that most of you don't knowor understand the service and what an advantage it can be for the customer. It isn't something you'll make a lot of money on the hardware or the VoIP service*, so you haveto charge for it as a design service.
I was a bit worried that I would find an economically battered battle field full of horror stories and spilled blood. I was pleasantly surprised to find lots of optomism, some great success stories and the same old entepeneurial spirit that keeps me enthralled with this industry.
