The Washington Post: Microsoft released the latest hardware drivers diagnostic tool, helping manufacturers to avoid driving loophole
At a recent Windows Hardware Engineering Conference WinHEC, Microsoft announced two new drives write software tool designed to help hardware manufacturers "stability, security," the Windows driver, so as to avoid hardware incompatibility phenomenon. It is reported that these two tools named "PreFast for Drivers" and Static Driver Verifier, are source code analysis tools to help people find driver source code loopholes. "We want drivers to be more reliable and stable." Microsoft spokesman says. As we all know, Windows operating system requires additional hardware driver to make the normal operation, the driver problem will lead to the paralysis of the entire computer. Microsoft's latest release through two diagnostic tools, "the user's computer will no longer be troubled by nasty security holes."

Reuters: nano-materials technology becoming more perfect, invisible cloak technology is expected to put into practice
Perhaps this scene can only appear in science fiction movies: hero wearing a stealth cloak, and instantly escape the enemy surrounded. With the tireless efforts of scientists, however, may be invisible cloak is no longer just a product of fantasy. It is understood that the surface material to a special technology, light and other electromagnetic waves will be bent and cut to bypass this particular system, which appears invisible, results.
Scientists said that with the current nano-technology, the production of this special material will not be impossible. Imperial College and the United States, researchers at Duke University in a complex of research, the possibility that the invisible cloak. Duke University, Professor Smith said: "The person wearing a cape like stealth in space, dug a hole, Any Light and electromagnetic waves directly through the hole, and thus will not see the cloak to hide the material." Practical on the principles of stealth cloak will not only be applied to the "stealth", with its help, any electromagnetic signal can bypass the interference and more effective barrier, thereby maintaining signal integrity. On the other hand, Mr. Smith said: "In fact stealth cloak technical feasibility, as early as 50 years ago has been proved by mathematicians, but now developed the possibility of nano-materials technology is expected to be put into practice." Learned U.S. Department of Defense is sponsoring the study conducted at Duke University.
