Fuel cells fire up handhelds

High-performance handheld electronic devices such as smart phones, video/music players, multi-functional PDAs and RFID tag readers require longer usage times than power sources currently provide. Traditional battery technologies are not keeping pace ...

Microsoft serves miscellaneous morsels for May

Ever since I began paying taxes, April just hasn't been much fun. Everything comes due in April, making May a month dedicated to grumbling and reactionary belt-tightening. Seems Redmond feels similarly, because so far Microsoft hasn't made many waves...

Linus Torvalds' BitKeeper blunder

Open source developers, as you might expect, typically use free compilers, editors, and other tools to build their software. But three years ago Linux creator Linus Torvalds began using a proprietary, closed-source software version control system cal...

Digital music heads to the courts

A U.S. Supreme Court peer-to-peer file sharing case, a Russian copyright loophole, and a potential second lawsuit for DeCSS programmer Jon Johansen -- what does it mean that this month's three most compelling digital music stories all touch on legal ...

Smart software: It's still stupid

Analysis: Jeers and cheers greet Google's video search

After months of rumors and speculation, Google finally made its entry into video search on Tuesday and its offering has received mixed reviews, an atypical reaction, considering the company's new services are normally greeted with enthusiasm.
