Kinect users have shown from the beginning his interest in the possibilities of the device. Since its release in November last year, there have been many developers, researchers and study centers have experimented with Kinect.
Applications have been developed since the creation of virtual reality systems to connect the device with other platforms such as Nintendo’s Wii console.
Microsoft has supported since the beginning of the investigation as a peripheral, and now the company goes a step further and has decided to publish the codes and tools for working with Windows environments Kinect.

As expected, Apple announced its new iPhone 4 which had connection problems with AT & T network at the time of the demonstration, which took Steve Jobs to continue with other aspects or new cell phone features.
technology called “retinal display,” which increases to four times the density pixels in the same space, says Jobs. Per inch is calculated 326 pixels. This device would have a thickness of 9.3mm. The iPhone 4 uses a micro-SIM card, like the iPad.

Similarly, Jobs said he would have a memory capacity up to 32GB.
Moreover they are adding new hardware, is the gyroscope, said Jobs. This would help improve the functionality of the accelerometer, in order to more effectively capture the movement and the turns you make to the phone.

Seductive, virtualization workstation VDI does not benefit. Marion Gravot, product marketing manager at Systancia, the future is a combination mode VDI – SBC that gives priority to application virtualization and provides the workstation as needed
Virtualization workstation or otherwise called VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) is the technology solution that everyone istalking about now. The largest international analysts like Gartner have paved the way and presented all the advantages of this approach:
* Operating systems and applications are no longer installed directly on the user workstations, but servers;
* The IT department of a company can easily manage their infrastructure and completely alleviating, including maintenance operations;
* The user to start his computer, like being on a normal workstation, nothing changes, but in fact, he became an image, a virtual representation of the system (eg Windows Seven ), image-related data center that hosts the actual system.
For example, if I have a fleet of 1,000 conventional PCs with Windows Vista, how can I easily switch to the new version of Microsoft? Moving towards a VDI, my deployment of the 1,000 Microsoft operating systems Seven takes a few clicks on my server infrastructure. Users, the next connection, see on their desktops, the focus Vista replaced by Seven. The ultimate solution is to replace desktop PCs, thin clients, cheaper and dramatically reduce energy consumption. The thin client contains nothing, apart from the party performing the virtual image.
