Look Boss, No Wires! or Why to care about Wi prefixes

Sometimes when technology changes, you can't really see yourself using the new features, especially in a business setting. However, I don't think anyone will have that problem with the move to wire free PCs. (Or why to care about Wi terms: WiDi, WiGig/WiDock, Wireless Charging, )

Using PowerShell to test AMT - with scripts for Reason for last boot & Alarm Clock

Below find 2 scripts (Big Thanks to Lance A) using PowerShell* to:

  • Test the Reason for the last boot 
  • Set the AMT Alarm Clock.(legacy interface)

Before running a PowerShell script, you may need to set the PowerShell environment to allow scripts to run . Also make sure the vPro Scripting Library is installed on the client.

Submissions open: High Performance Parallelism Gems

We have all had our little discoveries and triumphs in identifying new and innovative approaches that increased the performance of our applications. Occasionally we find something more, something that could also help others, an innovative gem. You now have an opportunity to broadcast your successes more widely to the benefit of our community. You are invited to submit a proposal to a contribution-based book, working title, “High Performance Parallelism Gems – Successful Approaches for Multicore and Many-core Programming” that will focus on practical techniques for Intel® Xeon® processor and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor parallel computing. Submissions are due by May 29, 2014.

Binomial Options Pricing Model Code for Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor


The Binomial Options Pricing Model (BOPM) is a generalized numerical method used to value options in the quantitative Financial Services industry. To be accurate, it is a lattice-based approach that uses a discrete-time model of the varying price over time of the underlying financial instrument. For historical reason, it’s also known as a tree model because it has a root and the leave-nodes. In this paper, we continue to follow tree-analogy convention knowing that it’s a lattice approach in reality.

    Ultrabook with QHD display == Wow!

    My professional programming experience goes back to 1972. Every once in a while a technology comes out that has a high rating on the Wow! factor. When the technology is affordable, the combination makes it must-have productivity improvement product to incorporate into software development process.
