EmberJS (vs. AngularJS)

podcast: Herding Code 169: Tom Dale and Rob Conery on the EmberJS / AngularJS Cage Match at NDC « Herding Code

One more ambitious and useful JavaScript library: ember.js
Conceptually it is similar to angular.js, and even more "oppinionated".

<script type="text/x-handlebars">

<script type="text/x-handlebars" id="index">

  {{#each model}}
    <li>Hello, <b>{{fullName}}</b>!</li>

Among others, ember's core team includes Yehuda Katz,
known for his involvement with reforming Rails 3.0 for performance, 
and excellent book about jQuery... 

A brave new world of JavaScript :)

AMD server ARM chips

AMD reboots server strategy with first ARM chips | PCWorld:
"Advanced Micro Devices is building its future server strategy around chips used in smartphones and tablets. The company said its first ARM server processors -- which will be released in the second half of next year -- will be faster and more powerful than its existing low-power x86 server processors.
Hewlett-Packard and Dell have built prototype servers with low-power ARM cores on which customers can benchmark and test programs."
