Blogs: HP

Welcome, my son.

Welcome to The Machine, says HP (NYSE:HPQ). It's connecting the dots in its research labs: Memristers and silicon photonics are the way forward, says HPLabs. It's also changing the assumptions that the operating systems make. Where have you been? This "changes everything" -- er, Real Soon Now.

ARM servers: A great idea whose time hasn't come.
Calxeda has ceased to be. Not great timing for its employees, sadly. Nor for HP, which was about to launch the ARM-based version of its Project Moonshot hyperscale servers -- looks like it's now stuck on Opteron and Atom.

Google, you've got some great stuff going on with Chrome OS these days -- but there's one big piece of the puzzle still missing.

Acer's new C720 Chromebook couldn't be more different from the recently released HP Chromebook 11 -- both for better and for worse.
