The Cell processor is the linchpin that enables the world's fastest supercomputer, IBM's Roadrunner, so it likely will add wings to your application too. Matthew Scarpino's new book Programming the Cell Processor, published by Prentice-Hall, shows how to create applications that harness the power of IBM's powerful Cell processor. Oriented toward game developers, graphics programmers and engineers, the book covers everything from the Cell's advanced architecture to its tools and libraries, presenting code examples that help you gain a deep understanding of Cell development. Topics include mastering the Cell SDK, understanding Cell's PPU, programming the Synergistic Processor Unit and more.

Astaro offers that its new Mail Gateway appliance trumps its competitors by being “the only security vendor that provides e-mail encryption free with its mail gateway solution”. Targeted at small- to medium-size businesses, the Mail Gateway also features virus protection and remote exchange access and runs transparently at the gateway to eliminate need for employee action. Removing individual employees from the encryption process, says Astaro, significantly lowers the chance that confidential data may be sent accidentally in plain text across the Internet. Astaro's encryption is based on standards, such as S/MIME, OpenPGP and TLS, and allows for scanning of encrypted e-mail for malware. In addition, Astaro's solution complements traditional antispam technologies with reputation-based filtering.
