    In the 1970s, Alan Kay and his colleagues at Xerox PARC envisioned a dynamic, interactive electronic book. Now, nearly 30 years later, that vision has become a reality. A new kind of personal information appliance-the reading appliance-is emerging as a tool for serious readers. But is the world ready for reading appliances? The authors believe that these appliances are indeed viable. Advances in m... View full abstract»

    The Semiconductor Research Corp. is one of the few organizations to get fierce competitors like Intel, Motorola, and IBM to the same table, let alone cooperate, and it has also wrangled money-$37 million annually-from these companies and others. With this money, it funds future research to keep the engines of semiconductor production churning. In short, the SRC is bent on taking Moore's law into t... View full abstract»

    For most software applications, the use of commercial off-the-shelf products has become an economic necessity. Gone are the days when upsized industry and government information technology organizations had the luxury of trying to develop-and, at greater expense, maintain their own database, network, and user-interface management infrastructure. Viable COTS products are climbing up the protocol st... View full abstract»

    The convergence of computing and networking is nowhere more evident than in the phenomenal growth of the World Wide Web. In another sense, though, computer networking is being pulled in two opposite directions. On the one hand, the Web's popularity and growth has been fueled largely by desktop applications consuming bandwidth-intensive images and video. On the other hand, thin-client computers are...
