Google Subnet writes about Google’s newly updated Google Search Appliance (GSA).

“The GSA software is now Version 6.0 and has the capacity to index potentially billions of documents. The new appliance, the GB-9009, can index up to 30 million documents. The appliance is built on Dell’s PowerEdge R710 platform, running Intel’s Xeon 5500 Series processors. It is unlike the other models, which are single-box appliances. This one has two units: one for processing and one for storage.”

The Register
John Oates writes that Intel is shelling out $884 million for Wind River, an embedded software company, in an effort to expand beyond its core PC markets.

“The chip giant is offering $11.50 a share for the firm – its shares were changing hands yesterday for $8. Wind River will become a subsidiary of Intel and continue selling embedded software. The idea is that it will expand Intel’s market from its PC and server routes to embedded devices, car and infotainment systems, mobile internet devices and other gadgets. The bid has been approved by Wind River’s board but needs shareholder and regulator approval. It should close in the summer.”
