23:51 HP Report Promotes Low-Energy Data CentersImagine a data center that requires no net energy from traditional power grids. Hewlett-Packard is pushing beyond the dream in a research paper called "Towards the Design and Operation of Net-Zero Energy Data Centers."
The research paper shows how the architecture, combined with holistic energy-management techniques, paves the way for organizations to cut total power usage by 30 percent, as well as dependence on grid power and costs by more than 80 percent.
HP will be showcasing the HP Net-Zero Energy Data Center architecture at HP Discover, the company's premier client event, which takes place beginning Monday and running through the week in Las Vegas.
With the HP Net-Zero Energy Data Center research, HP is working to bring the potential to operate data centers using local renewable resources, removing dependencies such as location, energy supply and costs. That, the company said, opens up the possibility of introducing IT services to organizations of all sizes.
Lowering Data Center Costs
"Information technology has the power to be an equalizer across societies globally, but the cost of IT services, and by extension the cost of energy, is prohibitive and inhibits widespread adoption," said Cullen Bash, a distinguished technologist at HP and interim director of the Sustainable Ecosystems Research Group at HP Labs. He went on to say that the HP Net-Zero Energy Data Center aims to reduce both the environmental impact of computing and the associated energy costs.
HP offered an example of the net-zero energy data center in action: Noncritical, delay-tolerant workloads could be scheduled during daylight hours to coincide with solar supply for data centers equipped with photovoltaic energy generation. In this way, HP explained, demand can be shaped according to resource availability to reduce reliance on nonrenewable resources.
As a result, organizations can lower overall data-center costs -- from capital investment in upfront infrastructure technology to...
23:25 Internet Explorer 10 To Have Do Not Track by DefaultMicrosoft said Thursday that its coming Internet Explorer 10 browser will integrate Do Not Track functionality switched on by default. Though consumers will be able to change the setting, the default will be to tell Web sites that users do not want identifying information about them saved.
"We believe that consumers should have more control over how information about their online behavior is tracked, shared and used," Lynch wrote in a blog post Thursday.
Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., praised Microsoft's move as an important first step toward greater privacy protection for consumers.
"It is my hope that Microsoft and other companies will go further in the future, so that Do Not Track also means Do Not Collect -- giving consumers the ability to say no to both targeted advertising and collection of their personal data," Markey said Friday.
An Aggressive Privacy Move
According to Net Applications, Internet Explorer 8 holds a 26.92 percent share of the global browser market, while IE9 has a 17 percent share. Given that IE8 launched in March of 2009 and IE9 followed in March of 2011, it will take a while for IE 10 to reach comparable market share levels.
Still, the decision to ship IE 10 with Do Not Track as the default setting will begin to have an effect on Web advertisers, content producers and free software app developers when Windows 8 launches later this year, including IE 10.
"From the refinements in this release it is pretty clear that Windows 8 will make its deadlines as a solid product," said Al...

21:41 Google To Charge Merchants To Appear in Google ShoppingGoogle Product Search is becoming a pay-to-play service called Google Shopping. In addition to potentially reshaping the way online marketing of products works, the move is part of a major policy transition by the technology giant.
Previously, Google's official position had been against requiring manufacturers of products to pay in order to get placement in search results. Now, the company is saying the new policy will help consumers, because it will relay more accurate pricing.
'Purely Commercial Model'
Currently, users can search for products through Google Product Search by entering the product name into the search field at Google.com and clicking "shopping" on the left. The results are derived from data feeds about products at participating stores, via a free tool that Google provides. Searchers can then choose to filter the results, such as by price.
The transition to Google Shopping, which was announced Thursday on the official Google Commerce blog, is expected by the fall. On the blog, Product Management Vice President Sameer Samat wrote that the move to "a purely commercial model" will encourage merchants to keep "their product information fresh and up to date," which will translate into better shopping results for users and higher quality traffic for merchants.
Merchants will also receive incentives to participate, such as a monthly credit of 10 percent of total Product Listing Ad spending through the end of this year, or a $100 AdWords credit toward Product Listing Ads for existing Google Product Search merchants.
Ranking in Google Shopping will be based on a combination of relevance and bid price, which Google said was comparable to Product Listing Ads currently. Eventually, there will also be opportunities to market special offers.
Trusted Stores Program
There will also be an option for merchants to participate in the new Google Trusted Stores program. E-commerce sites in that program will offer background on...

21:16 Judge Dismisses Final Oracle Claim Against GoogleThirty-seven application program interface packages for the Java computer language are not protected under U.S. copyright law, the judge in Oracle's uphill lawsuit against Google said in a 41-page ruling issued Thursday.
But Judge William Alsup of U.S. District Court in San Francisco stressed that the ruling "does not hold that the structure, sequence and organization of all computer programs may be stolen. Rather, it holds on the specific facts of this case, the particular elements replicated by Google were free for all to use under the Copyright Act."
Oracle will appeal the ruling.
No Copying Involved
In the final phase of the trial over claims that Google used patents and copyrights from the Java language to make the world's most popular mobile operating system, Android, Alsup said Google, or anyone, was free to access the Java APIs and then write their own code. Since no one claimed the code involved was duplicated, Alsup said, "Google has violated no copyright, it being undisputed that Google's implementations are different."
A jury on May 23 dismissed Oracle's claims that Google stole the company's patents, but in an earlier phase on May 7 had ruled that the company did infringe copyrights on nine lines of code. The damages awarded to Redwood Shores, Calif.,-based Oracle, however, are likely to be minimal. Published reports said that could be as little as $150,000.
The copyrights and patents became Oracle's property when it acquired Sun Microsystems, which created Java, in 2010.
"This one went south on Oracle early on, largely because Java, under Sun wasn't well protected and Sun, and initially Oracle, applauded its use by Google," said technology consultant Rob Enderle of the Enderle Group.
"That made this all look vindictive and likely painted Oracle as the villain," Enderle told us. "It also highlights that if you want to protect something you need...

20:55 Intel Ultrabooks Will Mooch Free Wi-Fi
With a little help from Devicescape.
There’s free Wi-Fi all around you, particularly if you live in a big city. That café you walked by, that neighbor who didn’t properly lock down her network, that public park you sat in on the way to work... free Wi-Fi abounds. But since you often have to hunt about for it manually, and you’re unsure of its quality until you test it, you often just opt to stay on your 3G service--or to just go without Wi-Fi for the moment.
