After opening up its Power PC architecture last August, IBM on Wednesday unveiled a new line of servers built to challenge Intel’s x86 architecture inside the data center. IBM said it will deploy those servers in its SoftLayer cloud.
IBM and other members of the OpenPower Foundation, which will manage Power architecture, also showed off a white box server built by Tyan, running firmware and an operating system developed by IBM, Google, and Canonical.
Google can’t stop investing in clean power. Earlier this week they announced they’d inked their largest clean power contract to date to buy energy from a wind farm in Iowa. And now on Wednesday Google has announced that it’s teamed up with solar panel maker and project developer SunPower to provide funding for installing solar panels on home rooftops.
Google will put in $100 million, and SunPower $150 million, and the combined $250 million will provide financing for leases for thousands of solar panel systems for home and building owners.
Unless you’re on the PGA Tour, Swingbyte might be just the thing to help correct that nasty slice. The $169 device attaches to any golf club and records swing data for viewing on a phone or tablet. If you have Google Glass, you can now get that feedback in real-time after each swing because Swingbyte is now available in the Glassware app store.
Once installed, the free app will show important swing data such as swing speed, club face angle, and swing path, which is helpful for understanding why you aimed one way and the golf ball went in another direction.
