3 Big data security analytics techniques

The rejuvenated Amiga company, Amiga Inc., this week released the a feature list for the latest version of its OS, bringing support for the recent hardware to the platform.

AmigaOS4 - it's alloneword, you see - is being developed on old 68000-based Commodore Amiga 4000s (running PPC cards), but it's a transitional release that already runs on the nominated platform of the future: PowerPC. The shell, the GUI and the TCP/IP stack are already native PPC code.

The new OS has the latest whizzy eye candy, as you can see from the screenshots here, and some support for Mount Rainier optical format - the drag and drop successor today's rewritable CD-RW drives.

Nokia has blessed Amiga by incorporating the technology in its long-anticipated digital home hub, the Nokia Mediaterminal. This combines a DVB, a TiVO-style PVR in a G3-based box, which you can see here. Amiga has been turning up on Nokia developer roadmaps too, we understand, and recently struck a deal to provide its Amiga Anywhere games for Microsoft's flagship Stinker smartphone, the Sendo Z100. More details of that here
