Our online newspaper, TGDaily is designed specifically to provide IT professionals and technophiles with the latest news and information about cutting-edge technology.

TGDaily offers up-to-the-minute analysis, commentary, interviews, trade show reports, trend stories and blog excerpts. With TGDaily, TG Publishing has leveraged the growing trend of readers preferring to cull news from the Web—instead of from a newspaper or television. TGDaily is one of TG’s most popular Web sites and continues to grow rapidly.

TGDaily is read by IT professionals and managers, software developers and technology early adopters. This powerful group of buyers and influencers has chosen TGDaily as their primary source for information about the fast-moving world of high-tech.

Articles focus on a number of categories, including hardware, software, Internet technologies, networking and security.



From the Editor: TG Publishing's success is the story of an insightful early adapter, filling a demand for information from emerging growth fields spanning many disciplines. Although the buzz was in the high tech area, consumer advocacy was an area where this enterprise established an enviable beachhead. Honest reporting and critical thinking lead to articles where uncomfortable truths often triggered significant changes for the better. Recognition that search technology was being monopolized by Google long before it became a mainstream issue drove many conversations that appeared as warnings, often unheeded. That Google's search technology could create both benefits and problems for society is considered an insightful predictor of events to come. The proof of the harm that Google's search results could foster pretty much lay dormant up until this point, but looking back we can see the seeds of the damage to privacy and reputations were being planted long before society began to push back. We celebrate the early thinkers whose writings grace these pages for the foresight and for their service to the fields that became big tech. Facebook, Amazon and social media were on the horizon and the growing need for information was in its infancy. The fuse had been lit. Viva TGP!




Tom's Hardware

Thomas Pabst founded Tom’s Hardware Guide in 1996, while earning an MD in his native Germany. One year later, Tom (as he’s known to his fans) decided to leave the medical field and commit full time to Tom’s Hardware Guide. Trading in his stethoscope for the now famous hammer that became the Tom’s Hardware logo, Tom earned a reputation for hard-hitting technology journalism, consumer advocacy and cutting-edge reporting.

His passion for pushing hardware to its limits and dedication to accuracy in hardware testing set standards for the site, not to mention the technology industry.

Tom gained notoriety in 2000, when Chip-maker Intel recalled its flawed Pentium III micro chip in 2000 after Tom wrote in his column that the chip was unstable.

Today, Tom’s single hammer has evolved into a full workshop of six websites, each dedicated to furthering Tom’s original quest for independent news and reviews of all facets of technology

TG Daily Interviews Intel's Top Mobility Products Executive: New Core 2 Duo Threatens AMD's Long Reign

LOS ANGELES, July 27, 2006 - With today's dual launch of two new chips sharing a common micro-architecture called "Core," Intel introduces the Core 2 Duo E6000 series Conroe desktop chip and the Core 2 Duo T5000/T7000 series Merom mobile chip. Intel is now well-positioned to go head-to-head with AMD and is hoping to regain the trust of consumers left underwhelmed by the company's previous architectures. And don't expect four-core processors in the mainstream anytime soon.

TG Daily spoke with David Perlmutter, senior vice president and general manager of the company's Mobility Group, about Intel's most important product launch in a decade. With Core, the company debuts the first processor technology with a mobile processor at its core. It's a move, Perlmutter says, that will enable Intel to develop multiple products in parallel based on a common, scalable architecture.

"We see better scaling performance over time using the mobile core," explains Perlmutter. "What we did with Core 2 Duo is optimize the core to a wider spread of applications compared to the Pentium M architecture, which was very much a mobile focus. We learned from that mobile lesson and optimized from the beginning, going from mobile to desktop to server."

He feels confident that the smarter development of Core 2 will deliver the power performance the market expects and a competitive advantage over AMD processors.

And while the anticipation for four-core processors is already building, Perlmutter predicts that it will be several years before they attract a mainstream market. "We have to be very careful with overloading the market and see what is useful," he says. "So will we see eight cores in the client in the next two years? If someone chooses to do that, engineering-wise that is possible, but I would doubt this is something the market needs."
