By Wendy Boswell (Intel)Posted 04/04/20140

You can do just that with GestureWorks Gameplay, which gives users the ability to configure their very own...

By matthias-hahn (Intel)Posted 04/04/20144
Recently someone asked me on more documentation about Yocto builds. In particular the person mentioned facing difficulties adding Java to an own IoT Yocto build. This conversation triggered the following post: Why you don't need Yocto builds on your own First of all: in order to work with the I...

Five Days @SouthBy
By Tim Duncan (Intel)Posted 04/02/20140
I first learned of South by Southwest, SxSW, or as the locals say, "Here for SouthBy?" when Stevie Ray Vaughan was shredding his guitar and my soul back in the 1980's. As far as I knew until the summer of 2013 SxSW was a music festival, "just" a music festival. Little did I know that 25 year...
Keyboards, Touch, Flexibility: The Appeal of the 2 in 1
By Wendy Boswell (Intel)Posted 04/01/20140
A recent post on SFGate.com titled “2 in 1 Devices can’t take the place of tablets” was puzzling, as the main point of the post seemed to be lamenting the lack of keyboard on a 2 in 1, as well as a not so subtle jab at the most common OS used in most 2 in 1 systems on the market right now. “Puzzl...

Indexing the Mahabharata
By mecej41Posted 04/01/20140
by N. Shamsundar The Mahabharata may be compared to the Greek Iliad or the Persian Shahnameh. Such epics contribute considerably to the culture of a nation, provide a vehicle for learning national languages, and may provide background information on the dominant religion of the country. Now and...
Accessing Intel AMT: QWERTY vs QWERTY vs QWERTZ
By Gael Hofemeier (Intel)Posted 04/01/20140
Having trouble logging into the Intel AMT WebUI after you are certain everything has been configured correctly?  Did you recently start using a different keyboard or perhaps you are using a VM that was created with US-based language settings?  There are many different QWERTY (and QWERTZ) keyboard...

Why Windows Threads Are Better Than POSIX Threads
By Clay Breshears (Intel)Posted 10/19/200665
I've used both POSIX threads (Pthreads) and Windows threads APIs, and I believe that Windows has the better programming model of the two. While each threading method can create threads, destroy threads, and coordinate interactions between threads, the reason I make this claim is the simplicity of...

Welcome to G45! Better (but still imperfect...)
By Aaron Brezenski (Intel)Posted 08/14/200856
The first couple weeks of motherboard availability on Intel's latest and greatest integrated graphics chipset have been tumultous. First, our competition threw together a demo booth which stated baldly that HP laptops with G(M)45 did not accelerate Blu-ray at all while theirs, naturally, did. Of ...

HDCP, HDMI, Repeaters, and You (Well, Me, Anyway)
By Aaron Brezenski (Intel)Posted 04/22/200851
EDIT (8/4/2011): I continue to get questions about this blog post even today, but I need to point out that the information is seriously outdated. A change was required to happen in vendor DVD software (PowerDVD, WinDVD, Arcsoft TotalMedia) and this was done in late 2008. Processors and chipsets...
What's our problem? What do YOU hate about Intel?
By Josh Bancroft (Intel)Posted 05/24/200745
I'm in an ISN staff meeting right now, and we're talking about risk taking opportunities. Broad topic, and we all have lots of ideas (including me). In fact, I maintain a draft blog post that's basically a list of hairball wild ideas that I'd like to do at Intel. I added a few ideas from the disc...

Volatile: Almost Useless for Multi-Threaded Programming
By Arch D. Robison (Intel)Posted 11/30/200743
There is a widespread notion that the keyword volatile is good for multi-threaded programming. I've seen interfaces with volatile qualifiers justified as "it might be used for multi-threaded programming". I thought was useful until the last few weeks, when it finally dawned on me (or if you prefe...

Building .NET applications for the app store
By ylian-saint-hilaire (Intel)Posted 12/09/200942
Building .NET applications for the App Store is not currently supported. If you are like me, building user interfaces with .NET is quick and easy and so, it would be nice to submit .NET applications. I did manage to submit an application that was built in .NET and also supports the Atom SDK, stil...
