First up, Turner is bringing together all of their web properties to create a QUOTE, brand-friendly ad network, which will offer advertisers a choice of two video and display-ad options across their nineteen websites, including CNN.com, NBA.com, and PGA.com. This comes as part of the company's push to abandon third party ad networks.




Processor maker Intel will look to re-enter the competitive mobile phone market when their new Atom Chip hits the market in 2009. The company feels the new phone will offer manufacturers of 'Smart Phones' the same kind of processing power which has already given them an 80-percent market share in the PC processor marketplace. However, critics of the new Intel chip say that the Atom will only offer 4 to 6 hours of HD video playback on a single battery charge for the phone it is installed in.


Also looking to get an edge in the market is NVIDIA,. The company recently announced plans for their Tegra Chip, which the company describes as a whole computer on a chip and it will offer users 26 hours of HD Video on one battery charge.


TiVo recently won a 74-million dollar settlement against competitors The Dish Network and Echostar for patent infringement damages, and now the sister companies are firing back with a counter-suit. Dish Network and Echostar are suing TiVo and say that they have developed a new version of their DVR software and it does not infringe on any previous TiVo patents.


Adobe is launching an upgrade of their popular software, Acrobat, now featuring an option allowing users to include flash-based videos in PDF documents. The new, improved Acrobat will also repackage documents, so they are readable across a range of operating systems, and it will also allow users to add video and audio to Power Point presentations.




And finally, Discovery Communications is set to launch a new, eco-friendly cable channel this week, PlanetGreen. The niche channel has big advertisers like GE and SC Johnson on board, and Discovery hopes the network will help prove the value of ads targeted to a specific audience as compared to ads targeting a larger, more generalized audience.

With the recent release of Windows 98, the Universal Serial Bus (USB) has become a new buzzword in the computer industry. What's so great about USB? Well, the serial bus has been long neglected in the way of upgrades. We've seen faster video cards (2D and the introduction of 3D), faster and larger hard drives, much faster CPUs, new 3D sound card technology, and faster motherboards. It seems that almost every component in the system has been improved with the exception of the serial bus. Aside from the invention of PS/2 a few years ago, absolutely nothing has happened with the buses until USB came along.
The Universal Serial Bus has several benefits over the older serial bus. One is a greatly increased bandwidth. USB has a bandwidth of 12 megabytes per second, which is plenty of bandwidth for any peripheral. At most, an ADSL modem would probably take up to 6 Mb/s of bandwidth, and other small devices won't take up more than a megabyte with the exception of some USB speakers. In addition to the increased bandwidth, USB also supports up to 127 devices. I'm not exactly sure who would use 127 different devices, but it's always nice to have the upgrade possibilities. USB devices can be powered through the Universal Serial Bus as well. Not all USB devices are powered, but it is nice that the possibility is there.
Many new devices coming on to the market will use USB. Some of the devices may be a surprise, whereas USB isn't just limited to the standard fanfare of keyboards and mice. In the coming months you'll see more and more digital cameras (still and video), modems (ADSL, ISDN, and analog), monitors (CRT and LCD), keyboards, mice, speakers, joysticks, and telephones. In fact, some of these products are available today. One of the more interesting USB products is a USB speaker. But don't speakers need to be plugged into a sound card? This is not the case with USB speakers. They have a sound hardware inside and the audio signal is digitally transmitted across the USB bus. It may seem that the future of sound cards is doomed, but USB speakers will probably stay in the business sector at least for the time being because they can't offer the advanced 3D sound and MIDI features that sound cards can.
Of course no new technology is without its drawbacks and USB has a few of its own. One being that for full USB support you'll need Windows 95 OSR 2.1 with the USB patch, OSR 2.5, or Windows 98. A great feature of USB is that it supports up to 127 devices. However, only two USB ports are on the motherboard and in order to use more than two devices, additional USB hubs must be purchased, which can cost $80 or more. (Some USB devices offer pass-thru connectors, but many do not.)
