IBM scored a contract to be exploring the feasibility of an exascale computer system that is powerful enough to collect and store the data generated by the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) telescope.
IBM has a prototype chip that features enough bandwidth to download 500 HD movies in just one second, or all content held by the Library of Congress in just about one hour.
Smart email, mind-reading devices and biometric password are predicted to become mainstream in the next five years.
IBM has released its annual IBM Next 5 in 5 list, which describes five technology visions likely to become reality within five years.
You can debate Moore's Law back and forth, but it appears that there is always speculation that it will hit a wall eventually.
We're not exactly sure how often a true and dangerous fire develops within a computer case. However, just in case (Ed. note: hah), IBM has invented a fire-suppression system that will conveniently and automatically extinguish flames inside your computer.
Digital documents have, in IBM's view, a notable disadvantage. If the data is not corrupted, the data remains the same for as long as it exists. However, there is now an idea how to change that.
We tend to be amazed by the number of patents that are being acquired by young companies, such as Google, in an effort to protect themselves from lawsuits and the bullying of older corporations.
