Origin's unassuming Chronos doesn't scream performance, but it still screams
While a small form-factor system is never going to match a tower desktop in performance potential, Origin's tiny towers make no excuses. Prices start at about a grand for a basic Our model has no LED lighting, no huge logo, no unusual features ...

Fitbit Surge activity tracker review

Despite its size, it’s more sophisticated than the Arduino: a desktop computer, essentially. One interesting thing about the Pi and the Beagles is that they’re essentially old-style evaluation boards, for Broadcom and Texas Instruments chips, respectively. And here comes another: MIPS’ Creator CI20. MIPS, once a popular maker of Risc CPUs for Unix workstations, is now a subsidiary of Imagination Technologies. Just as Imagination founded Pure to make digital radios to show off Imagination’s DAB chips, here’s the CI20 to show off MIPS processor tech and Imagination’s PowerVR GPU. It has had some success: Imagination will happily tell you that MIPS chips can be found in three billion-odd devices. While ARM is in smartphones and tablets, you’re more likel to find a MIPS chip in a home wireless router or a bit of telecoms infrastructure. Which is where the CI20 comes in. If World+Dog expects evaluation boards to be as cheap as the Raspberry Pi, then here’s a low-cost MIPS-based board. Professionals assessing the MIPS-based Ingenic JZ4780 SoC for a new set-top box or carrier-grade networking box would buy one anyway, but at £50 the CI20 is now an alternative to the like of Pi and might just start winning for MIPS a fresh...

WELCOME TO THE APPRENDA MARKETWATCH, YOUR ONE-STOP SOURCE FOR THE DAY’S EVENTS IN THE WORLD OF CLOUD, DIGITAL INNOVATION AND PLATFORM-AS-A-SERVICE. The cloud in 2015: The year of PaaS and Internet of Things headaches. “ 2014 was a fascinating year for the cloud, and last year we saw some very niche technologies hit the mainstream, while the debate over data protection and governance continued with some fervor. Looking forward to what will develop throughout this year, we predict the cloud will rise high in 2015 – but how (and where) it is tethered to the ground will matter more than ever.
