Intel recently showed off technology aimed at making our massive consumption of power more energy efficient. Using its Wireless Energy Sensing Technology, homeowners can monitor the power usage of each individual item over Wi-Fi. Intel hopes the same technology can be utilized to make data centers more energy and cost effective. In other news, a recent survey of IT recruiters and managers shows a severe lack of talent in the pool of employees. Consequently, many companies are faced with vacant positions for months. If you’re looking for a job, try learning Java. It is the most sought after skill in the industry nationwide. And finally, PricewaterhouseCoopers stated that by 2019, healthcare costs would constitute almost 20% of the economy.
