Fill Out Survey - Win an IPod

Filed under
Misc

At ZDNet UK we pride ourselves on addressing the technology issues our readers want to see addressed, from highlighting the latest security flaw in Windows, to whether blade servers are a sensible server upgrade strategy for your business.

With the new financial year just beginning, the latest IT Priorities survey is now live and we are inviting readers to get involved and tell us about their IT plans for 2005. The information gleaned from the survey will be used to shape our editorial coverage for the year ahead.

Win an iPod by completing the IT Priorities online survey here.

By way of compensation and motivation, we're offering a free 20GB iPod one lucky reader who completes the survey — please note that only those who complete the survey fully will be in the running for the prize.

In 2003, the IT Priorities programme was created with the goal of tying our editorial coverage as closely as possible to the purchasing and implementation plans of UK companies. To this end, for the past 18 months we have carried out regular reader surveys to gauge whether Linux on the desktop really matters to you, whether you are using 3G mobile technology, and so on.

The IT Priorities Research programme is designed to provide a near-real-time snapshot of business technology initiatives over the coming 12 months

Linux-based AUV maps Antarctic sea ice thickness

Woods Hole Oceanographic used a Linux-based “SeaBED” AUV to build the first 3D map of Antarctic sea ice — and found it’s thicker than had been estimated. Every now and then we see some good news about climate change sprinkled in with all the increasingly dire warnings. Yesterday, the New York Times reported that solar and wind energy are starting to become competitive with natural gas. On the same day, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI), based in Massachusetts, announced it had published a paper in Nature Geoscience on experiments run by an autonomous, Linux-based submarine called the SeaBED. The underwater survey indicated that Antarctic sea ice was thicker than had been previously estimated. Read more
