Pre-Order Asus 31.5″ 4K IGZO Monitor for $3500

Asus is reportedly now taking pre-orders for its 31.5 inch monitor (PQ321Q) featuring Sharp’s anti-glare LED-backlit IGZO technology. It sports a screen resolution of 3840 x 2160, 140 pixels per inch, and not only cuts down on energy consumption but features an extremely long durability given that Sharp’s tech doesn’t constantly refresh the images. It’s all static until something moves on-screen.

The company introduced the new monitor last month, reporting that Sharp’s IGZO tech supports smaller transistors than amorphous silicon thanks to significantly higher electron mobility. It also not only reduces energy consumption, but reduces the monitor’s overall bulk as well: at 35 mm at its thickest point, the PQ321 is the thinnest 4K UHD monitor available today, the company said.

A Sharp rep said during CES 2013 in January that the 31.5 inch panel will be marketed to professionals first given the end-price. The prototype also had ten-point touch input which apparently didn’t make it into the company’s own PN-K321 31.5 inch IGZO monitor selling for $5,000 USD. The Asus model also doesn’t support touch.

The upcoming PQ321Q supports wide 176° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, 10 bit RGB “deep” color, and an 8 millisecond gray-to-gray response time. Other features include a 0.182 mm pixel pitch, a max brightness of 350 cd/m2, a max contrast ratio of 800:1, picture-by-picture support and HDCP support. The monitor’s typical power consumption is 93 watts.

On the connectivity front, the I/O panel has two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort, and an RS-232C port for old-school VGA connections. There’s also a 3.5 mm mini-jack for PC audio input, a 3.5 mm mini-jack for AV audio input, and a 3.5 mm mini-jack for earphones (for HDMI and DisplayPort).

Last month the company said that the new display is the “equivalent to four Full HD displays stacked side-by-side.” It can now be pre-ordered on Amazon here, and on Newegg here, both requesting $3,499.99 USD. The monitor is slated to arrive on July 16, 2013.

Getting to know Jack Dorsey, the Twitter Author

Is one of the requirements to be successful is a must have dropped out of college? For those who do not agree with that statement, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg has proved the above statement is true.

Now, a New York University student born 19 November 1976, Jack Dorsey, co-joined to the above statement agrees with being one of the success with the brilliant work; Twitter.

Perhaps the name of the new Jack Dorsey first heard in your ears, or just this once you read it. In fact he was the one creating ‘toy’ in today’s internet era that could be very, very you gandrungi.

He is the creator of a social network with the concept of micro-blogging, Twitter. That the college years never removed from the campus where he learned about the computer.

Dorsey was born in St. Louis, Missouri, 37 years ago. And there precisely he grew up with curiosity about computers and communications were also great. Dorsey teen has started his desire to dive into programming since he was 15 years old.

And continued when he was in high school, Bishop DuBourg High School name. Where he pursue any science, and especially, computers and programming.

Dorsey teens start to find out and follow your passion when he was struck with a computer program that manages and coordinates a taxi passing by the system very well organized and quick.

How cars taxi, or car delivery can regularly meet and work quickly calls. Of interest arises where a similar program to create a more sophisticated, when he was only 15 years old.

Dorsey adults continue his studies at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. The study period was completed and continued to move to New York University who also never finish it. Or in another sense, Dorsey dropped out of university.

Because it takes time and concentration to build his company. Dorsey moved to Oakland, California, in 2000 and built a company engaged in the field of programming.

He sold the software on line pengkoordinir taxi he had ever made as a teenager in the web that he made himself. And the company continues to grow by selling software creation via the Internet.

Through his company is the way Dorsey met with people like Biz Stone and Evan Williams who later would become his partner in founding Twitter.

What’s in your mind when you want to create a Twitter Dorsey? Narrated by Biz Stone, Dorsey has wild ideas in his head. “Just imagine if we could share with our friends about what we are doing and what we feel now, imagine. Is not it great? “Said Dorsey.

Biz Stone, a former CEO of Odeo, and Evan Williams-one of the founders blogger, agrees that desire and build company called Obvious, who would soon be renamed Twitter.

Social networking on the initial launch is not so attractive to everyone, but it has now become one of the most social media enjoyed by most citizens of the world. Which may also be one of the ‘toy’ bored repellent for you.

Integrating C++ with QML

Introduction

Qt Quick’s QML language makes it easy to do many things, especially fancy animated user interfaces. However, some things either can’t be done or are not suitable for implementing in QML, such as:

  1. Getting access to functionality outside of the QML/JavaScript environment.
  2. Implementing performance critical functions where native code is desired for efficiency.
  3. Large and/or complex non-declarative code that would be tedious to implement in JavaScript.

As we’ll see, Qt makes it quite easy to expose C++ code to QML. In this blog post I will show an example of doing this with a small but functional application.

The example is written for Qt 5 and uses the Qt Quick Components so you will need at least Qt version 5.1.0 to run it.

Overview

To expose a C++ type having properties, methods, signals, and/or slots to the QML environment, the basic steps are:

  1. Define a new class derived from QObject.
  2. Put the Q_OBJECT macro in the class declaration to support signals and slots and other services of the Qt meta-object system.
  3. Declare any properties using the Q_PROPERTY macro.
  4. Call qmlRegisterType() in your C++ main program to register the type with the Qt Quick engine.

For all the details I refer you to the Qt documentation section Exposing Attributes of C++ Types to QML and the Writing QML Extensions with C++ tutorial.

Ssh Key Generator

For our code example, we want a small application that will generate ssh public/private key pairs using a GUI. It will present the user with controls for the appropriate options and then run the program ssh-keygen to generate the key pair.

I implemented the user interface using the new Qt Quick Controls since it was intended as a desktop application with a desktop look and feel. I initially developed the UX entirely by running the qmlscene program directly on the QML source.

The UI prompts the user for the key type, the file name of the private key to generate and an optional pass phrase, which needs to be confirmed.

The C++ Class

Now that have the UI, we will want to implement the back end functionality. You can’t invoke an external program directly from QML so we have to write it in C++ (which is the whole point of this example application).

First, we define a class that encapsulates the key generation functionality. It will be exposed as a new class KeyGenerator in QML. This is done in the header file KeyGenerator.h below.

#ifndef KEYGENERATOR_H
#define KEYGENERATOR_H

#include <QObject>
#include <QString>
#include <QStringList>

// Simple QML object to generate SSH key pairs by calling ssh-keygen.

class KeyGenerator : public QObject
{
    Q_OBJECT
    Q_PROPERTY(QString type READ type WRITE setType NOTIFY typeChanged)
    Q_PROPERTY(QStringList types READ types NOTIFY typesChanged)
    Q_PROPERTY(QString filename READ filename WRITE setFilename NOTIFY filenameChanged)
    Q_PROPERTY(QString passphrase READ filename WRITE setPassphrase NOTIFY passphraseChanged)

public:
    KeyGenerator();
    ~KeyGenerator();

    QString type();
    void setType(const QString &t);

    QStringList types();

    QString filename();
    void setFilename(const QString &f);

    QString passphrase();
    void setPassphrase(const QString &p);

public slots:
    void generateKey();

signals:
    void typeChanged();
    void typesChanged();
  

Long life, no cooling fans: Intel’s 4.5W Core processors could blur the PC/tablet line

Windows tablets hold within them an implicit promise: To deliver the full Windows 8 experience in a svelte tablet form factor.

Unfortunately, the ambitions of Microsoft and its partners have thus far exceeded reality, largely due to processor power issues. Even the lowest of low-wattage Ultrabook chips simply sip too much juice, forcing manufacturers to house their hybrids in cases full of fans—a compromise that has left Windows tablets and convertibles thicker and louder than the ARM-based tablet competition.

No more. Intel announced Tuesday that new Core Y-series Haswell processors capable of fitting in thin, completely fanless designs are inbound “in the coming months.”

While Intel had previously announced its Core Y-series chips would run at a scenario design point—basically, an Intel metric for the power draw during sustained workloads—of 6 watts, the newly announced processors will dip all the way down to 4.5W SDP. (6W variants will also be available.) That 1.5-watt difference between the two is the difference between needing additional cooling and a potentially fanless design, according to Intel

Tablets and hybrid PCs with the 4.5-watt Core chips will offer more than nine hours of battery life on active usage, Intel spokesman Dan Snyder said via email.

Don’t expect to see crazy performance from such low-powered Haswell processors, however.

While the new chips will be able to boost to higher performance for short periods thanks to their 11-watt thermal design power rating—a “worst-case” power metric that measures the maximum energy used during heavy workloads—a large part of Intel’s ability to bring the cooling and power requirements down so far lies in underclocking the processor. Sustained boosting above 4.5W would strain the cooling capabilities of a fanless chassis.

Even still, a low-powered Haswell processor will blow the pants off both ARM chips andIntel’s own Atom CPUs, performance-wise, bringing true Ultrabook-like chops to a truly tablet-style design.

“I think there is a real market need for a fanless tablet or 2-in-1 with PC-level performance,” says Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy. “This is exactly where Intel’s new 4.5-watt [chip] comes into play… Even though the 4.5-watt Haswell will be clocked lower than the 6-watt version announced at Computex, it will have significantly higher performance than Bay Trail.”

While Moorhead expects production of low-watt chips to ramp up sometime in 2014, Intel says the first round of energy-sipping Y-series processors will be produced in limited quantities. It’d be a shock if those chips failed to show up in a Haswell refresh of Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet.

The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache(tm) Mesos(tm) as a Top-Level Project

The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of nearly 150 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that Apache Mesos has graduated from the Apache Incubator to become a Top-Level Project (TLP), signifying that the project’s community and products have been well-governed under the ASF’s meritocratic process and principles.

Apache Mesos is a cluster manager that provides efficient resource isolation and sharing across distributed applications, or frameworks. It can run multiple frameworks, including Apache Hadoop, MPI, Hypertable, Jenkins, Storm, and Spark, as well as other applications and custom frameworks.

“It was our goal all along to see Mesos become a kernel of the infrastructure stack of the future,” said Benjamin Hindman, Vice President of Apache Mesos. “The project’s graduation from the Apache Incubator is recognition that the software is mature and has brought together a diverse community to sustain it in the future.”

Initially created at the University of California at Berkeley’s AMPLab (the research center also responsible for the original development of Apache Spark) to manage resource sharing and isolation in data centers, Mesos acts as a layer of abstraction between applications and pools of servers. Mesos helps avoid the necessity of creating separate clusters to run individual frameworks and instead making it possible to optimize how jobs are executed across shared machines.

Whilst in the Apache Incubator, Mesos had four releases, and established an Open Source community according to The Apache Way of governance. Additional improvements to the project includes its flexibility to support several application framework languages, and scalability that has been production tested to thousands of nodes and simulated to tens of thousands of nodes and hundreds of frameworks.

Apache Mesos has proven to be reliable for use in production, and has already been adopted by several organizations for cluster management.

“Mesos is the cornerstone of our elastic compute infrastructure,” explained Chris Fry, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Twitter. “It’s how we build all our new services and is critical for Twitter’s continued success at scale … one of the primary keys to our data infrastructure efficiency.”

“We’re using Mesos to manage cluster resources for most of our data infrastructure,” said Brenden Matthews, Engineer at Airbnb and Apache Mesos Committer. “We run Chronos, Storm, and Hadoop on top of Mesos in order to process petabytes of data.” (Chronos is an Airbnb-developed Mesos framework as a replacement for cron, and an example of how custom frameworks can be developed on Mesos to leverage its resource sharing).

“Community support for Apache Mesos is encouraging, particularly as more companies assess how they manage their clusters and look for more efficiency,” added Hindman. “Now that we’ve graduated, we look forward to continuing to grow the number of Mesos adopters and fostering an ecosystem around the project.”

Availability and Oversight
As with all Apache products, Apache Mesos software is released under the Apache License v2.0, and is overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management Committee (PMC) guides the Project’s day-to-day operations, including community development and product releases.
