Don't mean to beat up on Apple but have to go where the numbers take me.

It's so irritating when Apple finally catches on to a particular feature and everyone acts like it's it's so incredible and revolutionary, meanwhile another platform has been doing it for years. 

Apple announces Apple Pay and already all of my banks (as well as other services) are advertising everywhere that they'll support Apple Pay within their app. Yet none of them implemented NFC payments on Android devices. We've had Google Wallet for YEARS. We've been making payments with our phones for years. It works great. So many people have been missing out. Mostly iPhone users or non tech-savvy Android users who aren't aware of all the amazing things their phone can do until Apple copies it and that feature becomes popular. I can guarantee you there are many people out there with NFC-enabled Android phones looking at the iPhone 6 thinking "Wow! You can make payments just by tapping your iPhone to a thingy??"

I just wish these companies were more up-to-date and knowledgeable when it comes to this stuff. At least enough to watch other platforms. If they had paid attention to Android then they could have been benefiting from these great technologies years earlier.

New Type Of Computer Capable Of Calculating 640TBs Of Data In One Billionth Of A Second, Could Revolutionize Computing

Let me introduce The Machine- HP’s latest invention that could revolutionize the computing world. According to HP, The Machine is not a server, workstation, PC, device or phone but an amalgamation of all these things. It’s designed to be able to cope with the masses of data produced from the Internet of Things, which is the concept of a future network designed to connect a variety of objects and gadgets.

In order to handle this flurry of information it uses clusters of specialized cores as opposed to a small number of generalized cores. The whole thing is connected together using silicon photonics instead of traditional copper wires, boosting the speed of the system whilst reducing energy requirements. Furthermore, the technology features memristors which are resistors that are able to store information even after power loss.

The result is a system six times more powerful than existing servers that requires eighty times less energy. According to HP, The Machine can manage 160 petabytes of data in a mere 250 nanoseconds. And, what’s more, this isn’t just for huge supercomputers- it could be used in smaller devices such as smartphones and laptops. During a keynote speech given at Discover, chief technology officer Martin Fink explained that if the technology was scaled down, smartphones could be fabricated with 100 terabytes of memory.

HP envisages a variety of future applications for this technology in numerous different settings, from business to medicine. For example, it could be possible for doctors to compare your symptoms or DNA with patients across the globe in an instant and without breaching privacy, improving health outcomes.

While this is an exciting development, unfortunately for us HP isn’t expecting to have samples until 2015 and the first devices equipped with The Machine won’t surface until 2018.

Awesome 
 Intel announced an SD-card sized computer ‘edison’  at  CES 2014 las vegas .
have a dual-core 400MHz quark processor,  Wi-Fi and bluetooth connectivity, flash storage, RAM, and a micro-controller for real-time input and output with external devices.
will this change the world of the internet of thing?
