Responding to reports of endlessly rebooting PCs from support groups last week, Microsoft said on Tuesday it has pulled the recent updates for the coming Windows Vista SP1
The update is actually a pair of prerequisite files that modify Vista’s install components. This has been temporarily pulled from Windows update and Microsoft has not yet produced a fix for users whose machines either won’t boot or reboot constantly.
“Immediately after receiving reports of this error, we made the decision to temporarily suspend automatic distribution of the update to avoid further customer impact while we investigate possible causes,” said Nick White, a Vista program manager, in a post to the company’s blog Tuesday afternoon.
According to Microsoft’s White: “This problem only affects a small number of customers in unique circumstances.”

Here’s an interesting application using our Stealth Rackmount computers.
The Ontario Science Centre, a science based museum in Toronto, Canada opened a new facility aimed at getting youth and young adults interested in science and technology. Over 50 different multi-media experiences were designed to inspire visitors to take on and find practical solutions to current world problems; merge art with science; and work with a variety of materials. Visitors are challenged to think differently about themselves and the world.
A quantity of 77 Stealth 2U rackmount computer systems were deployed in rack cabinets conserving space without jeopardizing processing power or system reliability. Stealth built custom rack servers that were only 3.5″ in height (2U) and featured internal hot swappable thermal cooling fans for easy maintenance and reduced downtime.
The IT staff involved in implementing the project has commented “The Stealth hardware has been Rock Solid”. Since the opening there has been many thousands of children and young adults who have experienced technology like never before.
Stealth received a nomination from Microsoft’s Impact Awards for this inspiring application.
The Ontario Science Centre is also a leading developer of interactive exhibitions for science centers around the world.

About a year after its release, Microsoft Windows Vista will receive its first service pack update in March. Microsoft says the service pack (SP1) will offer better compatibility with third-party hardware, increased reliability, tighter security, and better performance.
Overall the SP1 release is largely a code update, lacking of any new eye candy, and very light on “must-have” features for basic home users. Most of the features publicized by Microsoft are for the Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Vista editions of the operating system.
The good: Windows Vista SP1 improves the overall upgrade process, fixes hundreds of small problems, and makes it easier for third-party vendors to write stable code for the o/s.
The bad: Vista SP1 lacks any real convincing “must haves,” and, in most cases, doesn’t significantly improve overall performance.
The ugly: It seems many businesses are sticking with Windows XP for as long as possible. And it’s possible some may bypass Vista altogether and wait for Windows 7, a Vista successor that’s due out in 2010 with rumors of an even earlier release.
The bottom line: It is always good to install the latest code for any operating system however installing the Vista SP1 update may require an investment in time with little visible improvements to your systems.

Rumors spread by the top mainboard makers out of Taiwan are saying that AMD has delayed the release of their Quad Core 9700/9900 Processors again.
The world’s second largest supplier of x86 chips will have to rely only on their entry-level and mainstream chips for the first half of 2008 which means lower profit margins.
AMD has not released an official statement.

LCD panels are everywhere these days, even in your kitchen fridge. Although they are excellent for many applications, for some they just don’t cut it. A typical LCD monitor produces a maximum brightness (white light) of about 200 to 350 nits. This is fine for most desktop and indoor applications where the ambient lighting conditions are optimal.
Over the past few years we have seen an increased demand for LCDs that will work in high ambient lighting or direct sunlight conditions. If you plan on using an LCD outdoors you will need a minimal 1000 nits of brightness.
Stealth offers a number of high bright LCD products ranging in sizes; 12”, 15”, 17” and 19 inch diagonals with brightness levels up to 1600 nits. Many of the applications we support are for outdoor or direct sunlight use. Our anti-corrosive stainless steel bezel stands up to the elements and can take a hose down due to its NEMA 4X seal.
Typical customer applications include:
• Human Machine / Operator Interface
• Process Control & Factory Automation
• Marine/Mobile & Transportation
• Refineries and Power Generating Plants
• Outdoor Use, Advertising
• Digital Sign Applications
• Security, POS & Commercial Kiosks
