8 Things You Need to Know About Windows 8

Microsoft windows dominated the desktop market for 10 years from the time they launched Windows 95. Steve's iOS brought down the market in the year 2007 and Windows Vista was a great failure of the entire Windows' operating system. So serious efforts were made for windows 7 but they were not lucky enough. Now it is the Windows 8 which has already made a lot of buzz in the town. The tablet centric multitouch interface is the main topic of discussion among all. Here are a few things listed which all Windows fans and desktop users should know about the latest operating system. 
1. Windows 8 Runs On ARM Chips:
Windows running on ARM chips has finally authorized by the Steven Sinofsky, the president of Windows division, Microsoft. But there are complications when it comes to up gradation of the Windows 7 operating system to Windows 8. As Windows 8 is the only OS which can run on the devices powered by ARM based architectures. This will allow the OS to work on both desktop and tablets…

LONDON: Get ready for the next-generation computers and smartphones that are up to 1,000 times faster than the systems you use today.
Computer maker IBM is developing "skyscraper" computers using huge sandwiches of silicon chips by sticking layer after layer of chips covered with tiny components together.

The process, for which IBM has roped in glue maker 3M, will make PCs and smartphones up to 1,000 times faster than the existing ones and are expected to be available in market as early as 2013.

3M currently makes heat resistant glues, adhesives used in the aerospace industry and sticky tapes, but the hi-tech glues created for IBM could actually be the key step towards making the next evolutionary leap in computing, reports said.

The attempts at piling chips vertically -- known as 3D packaging -- has so far been suffering from overheating. But, the new glues could potentially conduct heat through a stack of densely-packed chips and away from logic circui…
