IBM: Why Our Mainframes Are Really 'I/O Supercomputers'

TheStreet (Apr. 9, 2014) — Hot on the heels of IBM's promise not to exit hardware, executive Steve Mills highlights the capabilities of the company's mainframe technology, which he describes as an I/O (Input/Output) supercomputer. The challenge in commercial workloads, he explains, tends to be less about computer, but more about moving the data quickly, enabling mainframes to deliver better cost of ownership to users. With the mainframe celebrating its 50th birthday, Mills also looks to the future. Video provided by TheStreet

Microsoft Ends Support for Windows XP, Leaves ATMs Vulnerable

TheStreet (Apr. 8, 2014) — In what's being called the death of Windows XP, Microsoft will no longer provide support for the operating system beginning today. Without Microsoft's security updates, computers running on XP will be left vulnerable to viruses and cyber attacks. That includes many of the nation's ATMs and small businesses still running on Windows XP. Microsoft is advising that XP users upgrade their current PC to run on Windows 8.1 if possible. If not, Microsoft encourages users to shop for a new computer. Video provided by TheStreet
