Intel has announced the release of the new versions of its software development packages Intel Parallel Studio XE 2011 and Intel Cluster Studio 2011 for the platforms Linux and Windows. These new products contain the best compilers for C/C++ and Fortran, the libraries for increasing the productivity and the application parallelization, the analysers of code consistency and profilers. In addition to the functions of Intel Parallel Studio XE 2011, the Intel Cluster Studio package includes additional options for programming the distributed memory using the MPI technologies.
The emergence of the Linux versions became a very important event in the development of the Intel Parallel Studio 2011 package – now software developers can check the memory and the standard parallel programming models even in Linux. The utility Intel Inspector XE 2011 has replaced the former utility Intel Thread Checker which is responsible for checking the memory.
The new function of Ideal Interconnect Simulator in the utility Intel Trace Analyzer and Collector helps model the application behavior in the ideal communication environment. What concerns the support of the Fortran programming language, which is very popular in the projects with intensive calculations, Intel provided a special interface for the Microsoft Visual Studio environment (you don’t have to purchase an additional license for Visual Studio) and the utilities Intel Composer XE and Intel Amplifier XE work directly via this interface.

Recently online hackers have been trying to distribute the harmful code through the gaps in the Java security system. Such conclusion has been made by the experts from the security laboratory of the G Data company, having analyzed the Top 10 harmful programs. Earlier the weak points in PDF constituted the highest danger, now they have been replaced by the Java exploits. Among the ten most popular viruses of October 2010, five ones concern the vulnerabilities of Java.
Among the possible reasons of such dominations are the gaps in Java security issues, reported the experts. Moreover, the process of production and distribution of the harmful code has become much simple in comparison with the other forms of infecting.
Experts in the sphere of application security recommend users to install the high productive security solution as well as update regularly the installed operation system, browsers and their components. It’s also necessary to use on your PC only the latest versions of applications.
Web and mobile application developers are concerned about developing secure applications and the issue of security is very acute for software development companies.

The American company Apple is accused of violating the copyright law in China where the local manufacturer of computer monitors claims that Apple doesn’t have rights for using the trademark iPad. The Chinese company Proview Technlogy Co claims that it registered the brand name iPad in China in January 2000 and since that time it has been using it at the Chinese market.
According to Beijing News, the Chinese company has all the required documents and the local player is planning to protect its right for the brand. Apple started selling its tablet computer iPad in China last month, although ‘grey’ iPads have been selling in China practically from the moment of iPad release in the USA.
Some reliable sources say that earlier the companies negotiated the issue of transferring the trademark but didn’t reach an agreement. Now the reasonable price for the trademark iPad is about $800,000. In the official statement Proview Technology states that the decision on launching the sales of tablets under the name iPad was illegal from Apple’s side.
Nobody knows how it will influence the device itself but mobile application developers have already liked this device and have already created hundreds of devices for iPad.

CRM is a computer program which gives any company a chance to become a highly organized company oriented on customers having placed them in the center of all information channels related to them and provides sales people the access to the required data. In the customer oriented company sales people will have the access to the whole information which, one way or another, influences their relations with customers. Negotiations, informal discussion, letters, complaints, reclamations, all the information which has been sent to the customer – everything that can influence the ability of the sales people to provide services and, as a result, sell more goods and services.
The customer oriented companies handle clients’ requests more quickly and accurately as the whole necessary information is stored in one place. Thanks to this, the company can have a higher index of client retention than the competitors that are organized traditionally.
