Shane Schick shares some of Preston Gralla, of Computerworld’s thoughts on Windows XP SP3.

“‘If you’re an IT pro and need to test out SP3 before its official launch, it’s worth trying out now. Others might as well wait for the final version – there’s nothing that’s an absolute must-have right now, but the improved security will be worth it in the long run.’”

Jordan Robertson writes about IBM’s latest mainframe computer, the System Z10.

“The new machines also boast more processing horsepower, using 64 processors compared to the 54 processors used in its predecessor, the z9. Those chips are better at multitasking – the new machine is IBM’s first mainframe to use so-called “quad-core” chips, or microprocessors with four computing engines on a single slice of silicon. Adding cores to chips improves their ability to handle multiple tasks at once.”
