  • Bigger is better: The developing pattern of large screen

    IN JANUARY 2014, phablets accounted for only 6 percent of used devices globally. However, by the end of that same year, phablet shipments in the Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ) region hit 12.6 million a year on year growth of 225 per cent. Phablets continue to grow at a staggering pace for 2015, holding 22 percent of smartphone share in the region– a phenomenal rate. So why has this demand taken off and who is driving it?  In a country like Pakistan where consumers are keen to have competitively priced consumption devices, availability of plethora of s…Read More

  • Back to the future: The second coming of overclocking

    Tall gas cylinders stand like sentinels behind anxious devotees who tend to motherboards riven by wires. Fluorescent tubes protrude from the machines, seeming to feed their depths with elaborate drips of sickly neon. Liquid nitrogen spills into makeshift sinks crowded with whirring components, coolly billowing fog over the benches. At a glance, you could mistake this scene for the production department of amade-for-TV sci-fi relic. The outrageous machines could easily be failed prototypes for a Dalek’s innards or Doc Brown’s DeLorean. But this is real life Taipei, Taiwan, 2014. The room is one of many at this year’s Computex expo, and enthusiasts are using jerry-rigged PCs to o…Read More

  • Intel’s Views on 2015

    In the world of technology nothing stands still. Today, we frequently see new mobile and computing devices come to market offering a whole host of innovations, while IT gathers and manages unprecedented and incomprehensible volumes of data from a plethora of everyday objects. The rapid pace of innovation we’ve seen across all IT will continue into 2015 to usher in the Era of Integration; a time when technology and computational power will no longer be an adjunct to our daily lives, but an integral, immersive and all-encompassing part. And the AsiaPacific and Japan region will lead the way. Computing is Transforming Supporting…Read More

  • The ABC of overclocking

    The year is 1992. You own a 286 desktop tower with a VGA monitor. Wolfenstein 3D is a cutting edge game andof great personal importance to you. But with a basic central processor unit (CPU) speed of 8MHz, your computer is just not fast enough to keep pace with Apogee’s impossibly advanced and artful new release.  On the front of the 286’s chassis is a button marked ‘Turbo’. Though you don’t realise it at the time, this enigmatic dial alters the machine’s base clock, which is set by the resonating frequency of a crystal lying at the heart of the CPU. A single press can drastically alter the physics of the games you spend hours upon hours playing. Or dr…Read More

  • Big Data goes green

    I’ve recently made the effort to be more environment friendly. I turn the TV off at the mains when I’ve finished watching it, and I’ve stopped letting the tap run when I brush my teeth. Did you know that you can save up to eight gallons of water a day doing that? We’re constantly asked by governments and utility companies to be more energy efficient in our day-to-day lives, so I wanted to do my bit. I hope you are too. There’s no hiding from the fact that we all need to be more energy efficient to reduce harmful carbon emissions and to satisfy growing demand fo…Read More

  • Big Data – helping takecontrol of Asia’s traffic woes

    Many cities across Asia Pacific are notorious for terrible traffic. In fact, just recently there were reports of a horrific jam in China that lasted for over a week. Can you imagine the frustration of being caught in that? While this is an extreme case, dealing with traffic congestion in bustling Asian cities is a daily reality. In highly populated cities or tourist hotspots such as Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City and Jakarta, the roads are filled with buses, cars, taxis, motorbikes, bicycles and a lot of pedestrians. Staying off the roads doesn’t necessarily help either. In Manila, yo…Read More

  • Intel perspectives – competing ahead of the exascale pack

    IT’S NO surprise that governments across the globe – including China, Japan, the US, and Europe’s biggest players – are in a race to develop exascale systems. Being able to house the most powerful supercomputers will enable public or large private organisations make them the first port of call when looking to address current and future computing needs. It will create not only significant revenue and employment opportunities, but also the chance to become the global hub of IT innovation for various industries. Currently, Asia is on the way to take ahead of the pack. For instance, the world’s current f…Read More

  • High tech dreams are the new developing world reality

    By Naveed Siraj When we think about the synergy between technology and a family, we tend to think in fairly imposing terms: massive computer invading a corner in the house. This haughty vision is blinding us to an important and rather striking technological revolution which has been going on right under our noses: the technological revolution in the home. This metamorphosis is transforming the conduct of our daily lives, but in somewhat preeminent ways. Just slow down and note the influence that technology is having on the family life as a whole and how com…Read More
