MSFT readying for the Surface launch, opens new stores in the USA and Canada.


Locations:

The new stores are important to Microsoft, since the company's Surface tablet will only sold at its own retail locations (as well as online). Adding another dozen stores to the 31 Microsoft Stores either already open or planning to open soon will give Microsoft's tablet a much-needed boost.
According to Microsoft's job postings, new stores will be opening in the following cities: Natick and Braintree, Massachusetts; St. Louis, Missouri; Cleveland, Ohio; Portland, Oregon; San Francisco, California; San Antonio, Texas; Chicago, Illinois, New York, New York; two locations in Miami, Florida; and Vancouver, British Columbia and one in Toronto,Ontario.
Since the Surface is exclusively sold at retail through Microsoft's own stores, it gives customers an extra reason to walk through the door. Surface generated a lot of positive buzz for the company when it was announced in June.

Transcend launches aXeRam DDR3 Memory Kits. 


The new sets come with big aluminum heatsinks and can handle more voltage than the reference DDR3 JEDEC specification.

Transcend's dual-channel memory kits are officially called aXeRam DDR3-2133 2x 4 GB and aXeRam DDR3-2400 2x 8 GB.

The former reportedly uses a 1.6V DIMM voltage and has 10-11-10-27 latencies while the latter needs 1.65V and has 11-12-11-29 latencies.

Overclockers will surely prefer the DDR3-2400 kit, but even the average user can enjoy some automatic overclocking as both memory kits come with Intel XMP 1.3 support.

Both kits use high-quality 8-layer PCBs that are claimed to help with stability and overall reliability.

The new aXeRam DDR3 memory kits from Transcend are backed by a full lifetime warranty.

The pricing information has not been made available yet.

London 2012: Omega official timekeeper technology evolution.


Accuracy down to the millionth second

Omega has been the official timekeeper of the Olympics for the last 80 years. Back in 1932, timekeepers used stopwatches that measured to the tenth of a second.

Omega unveiled the world's first independent, portable and water-resistant photoelectric cell used in London in 1948.

For the 1952 Helsinki Games, Omega began using electronic timing with the Omega Time Recorder.

Ahead of the 1964 Tokyo Games, the watchmaker developed the Omegascope in 1961, which showed each competitor's time on a TV screen. In 1962, Omega unveiled its contact pads used for timing swimming competitions.

By the 2008 Beijing Olympics, high-speed video cameras, capable of shooting 1,000 frames per second, were used in addition to the electronic timing system to help break ties.

In the 2010 Vancouver Games, the start pistol was replaced with an electronic starting gun.

At London, high-speed cameras can shoot 2,000 frames per second, double that of Beijing. Omega's Quantum Timer is able to provide accurate time readings down to the microsecond, or about one-millionth of a second, 100,000 times more accurate  than Omega's technology in 1932.
