Computer hard drives perform better, last longer with novel polyester lubricant
 
Much discussed among computer circles is the so-called end of Moore's Law and its predictions of ever-smaller circuits. Less known is a challenge facing the next generation of hard disk drives: lubricant coatings that can hold up to faster speeds and denser data.

Intel to throttle power by enhancing silicon
 Depending on the goals of the chip designer, circuits made on the 65-nanometer process can boost performance or cut power consumption or do both, but Intel is putting a definite accent on energy conservation. (65-nanometer refers to the average size of features of a chip. A nanometer is a billionth of a meter.)

Hard Disk Speed Limit Found
If there is an article of faith in computer science, it's that everything can keep getting faster and faster. But scientists say they've discovered an apparent speed limit that will restrict how quickly data can be written onto disks and then retrieved.
The good news: This limit is about 1,000 times faster than today's state-of-the-art data storage devices.

Intel chips take a new number
Intel plans to assign a new numbering system to its Pentium and Celeron processors in order to better illustrate their performance to consumers, according to a source familiar with the company's plans. The chip giant is expected to begin the practice with the launch of its latest Pentium M processor, which is due in the second quarter. Pentium 4 and Celeron chips will also get model numbers, as Intel aims to get the system in place by summer, the source said.

Surround Sound Now Part of MP3s
 A way to add surround sound to MP3 files has been discovered by the Fraunhofer Institute in a way that doesn't significantly increase file size. In July of 2004, products will appear to utilize this new technology.    
 
The technology was shown to the public at the Cebit technology fair in Hanover, Germany. The new encoding procedure amounts to adding a small amount of information regarding the track's spatial characteristics.
   
New devices/new software will be needed to experience the surround sound effects. Before, surround sound meant recording on different channels to deliver the effect. MP3s were too small for this to work so this encoding solves the problem.
