    Resource search or discovery is a fundamental issue in peer-to-peer (P2P) and grid studies. Search objects, or resources, can be cycles, storage spaces, files, services, addresses, and so on. In most search methods cited in related literature, peers run uniform forwarding logic; we call these homogeneous search (HMS) techniques. Although various efficient and scalable HMS techniques exist, previou... View full abstract»

    The new year signaled a turning point in the deployment of supply chain management's "next big thing" - radio frequency identification, or RFID. RFID isn't really new. For several years, military and security applications have deployed fairly sophisticated implementations of active RFID, which uses battery-powered radio-equipped tags to transmit pertinent information. However, the next wave of RFI... View full abstract»

    Among the technology winners IEEE Spectrum magazine recently predicted to surge in 2005 is Internet Protocol television. IPTV delivers a relatively low-speed broadband TV connection (2.2 megabits per second) through telephone wires. By using a legacy copper network instead of a more costly optical-fiber upgrade, IPTV delivers a multiplicity of programming choices that's expected to enable telephon... View full abstract»
