Rutgers-led Experts Assemble Globe-Spanning Supercomputer Cloud (Rutgers)

Rutgers engineers took first place in a scalable computer competition at an IEEE symposium after demonstrating their supercomputer cloud computing environment--which they controlled using an iPad.

iPhone 5 redesign likely says WSJ, but have you met the iPad HD? (This is my next...)

I'm not saying there's a connection. Because Georgia may well know where I live.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
