    The US Federal Circuit court of appeals has dissolved the preliminary injunction that for several years kept barnesandnoble.com from offering its internet customers the one-click shopping that Amazon.com offers. The one-click patent, one of the most derided business method patents, took a heavy thrashing from the Federal Circuit, but it hasn't been knocked out by complete invalidation yet. This de...

    With higher sensor resolutions available, the speed and dynamic range requirements for image processors in digital imaging systems are more demanding. A 12-bit, 50 Mpixels/s digital image acquisition system balances power end performance. The analog processor's total power dissipation is only 150 MW at full speed-an enviable quality for the portable market although the underlying technique require... View full abstract»

    The IAP takes advantage of fast, wide embedded DRAM to perform fast forwarding-table lookups and statistics collection for the next generation of fast, intelligent routers. Its lookup rate of 65.5 million lookups per second allows two lookups per packet at 10 gigabits per second into a 256 K entry table View full abstract»

    As a rule, economic facts are often the equivalent of a cold shower. The plain fact is that not many internet firms were profitable at any time in the last five years. The list of unprofitable companies (and spectacular investment failures) is embarrassingly long, including Amazon, AT&T Broadband, E-Toys, Dr. Koop, and too many other dot-coms to mention. Indeed, positive profitability was so r... View full abstract»
