|Sanctions on Russia over Ukraine could come this week: France|
Added: 11.03.2014 7:54 | 1 views | 0 comments
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Tuesday that sanctions against Russia over Ukraine could be imposed as early as this week if Moscow failed to respond positively to a proposition designed to calm the crisis. Fabius told radio station France Inter that a referendum in the Crimea region on joining Russia set for March 16 was illegitimate and that the annexation of the region by Russia would be illegal. Fabius said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had sent a proposition to Moscow in an effort to calm the situation. "If they respond positively, John Kerry will go to Moscow, and in that case the sanctions won't be immediate," Fabius said.

|Intel bides time on faster Thunderbolt connector|
Added: 11.03.2014 1:40 | 0 views | 0 comments
Intel could soon bring to market a faster version of its Thunderbolt connector technology with a throughput of 50Gbps, but the company is biding its time until there is a need for faster connectors.
Thunderbolt technology connects computers to peripherals like external hard drives at much faster speeds than USB 3.0. Thunderbolt ports are found in Macs and select Windows PCs, but are more expensive than USB technology, which is found in most PCs that ship today.
The latest iteration, Thunderbolt 2, transfers data at 20Gbps (bits per second). Intel is researching how to speed up Thunderbolt, but the company could potentially develop and deploy a faster connector for PCs based on silicon photonics technology, which combines silicon components with optical networking, said Mario Paniccia, Intel fellow and general manager of silicon photonics operations.

|Intel puts its energy into smart grid development in Germany|

Intel is putting its energy into the development of smart grid standards and monitoring systems in Germany, with company executives announcing a number of initiatives at the Cebit trade show Monday.
With Westfalen Weser Energie, it is developing smart monitoring systems for the regional utility’s electrical substations, said Hannes Schwaderer, Intel’s director of energy and industrial applications for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
In Germany there are around 1 million secondary substations, which transform electricity from medium-high voltages down to the 220 volt supply found in homes and offices, said Detlef Gieselmann, the utility’s senior vice president of business development. In residential areas, each substation typically serves 100 to 150 people, with others serving commercial or industrial sites, he said.
