Farewell to Noisy Computers? Intel’s Latest Chip May Make Your Laptop Way Quieter

Intel wants to kick battery speed and battery life up while getting rid of fans that generate so much noise in laptop devices. Check our the full article HERE by Yahoo! Tech Columnist Rob Pegoraro ( @robpegoraro) :

‘Intel’s newest processor wants to shut your computer up.

To be more exact, the chipmaker hopes its smaller, more efficient Core M chip will allow laptop and tablet manufacturers to dispense with cooling fans and their background whir and whine.

Along the way, the Core M is supposed to upgrade speed and extend battery life — and hopefully allow Intel to make money from selling tablet processors instead of having to pay manufacturers to use them.

At a keynote at the IFA trade show here, Intel vice president and general manager Kirk Skaugen introduced the Core M as “a purpose-built processor” for the growing category of two-in-one devices that can transform into a laptop or a tablet by detaching or flipping the screen. Longer battery life, faster performance, and less noise are the three major benefits you should see as a computer buyer in the coming years.

Skaugen also noted that the Core M is “100 percent conflict-free,” keeping a commitment Intel made at the Consumer Electronics Show to ensure that the raw materials used in its chips don’t fund the long-running civil war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo ‘

Windows 9 – The Way of the Windows Future

Windows 9: User Experience Evolved?

So if your like me you didn’t necessarily dig Windows 8 or its upgrade Windows 8.1 but Microsoft is trying a gutsy move: An operating system that adjusts its visual appearance and user interface to accommodate the hardware its on. So what exactly does that mean for the average joe? Well if your using a laptop or desktop where a keyboard and mouse are present Windows 9 will bypass the metro style interface and take you straight to the tried and true Windows Desktop screen, if you have a Windows Tablet it will use a touch screen styled interface like Metro and if you have a Tabtop (Tablet/Laptop Hybrid) then it will allow you to switch be the Metro interface and traditional desktop style when a keyboard is detected.  Windows 9 is reported to be coming out in the Spring next year and the public preview will be available in the fall so we may see, sooner rather than later, if this will be the shot in the arm Microsoft and Windows or yet another poison.
