Twitter sets new tweets per second record, explains why 143k simultaneous updates didn’t make it stutter

Twitter sets new tweets per second record, explains why 143k simultaneous updates didn't make it stutter

Remember the last time you saw the infamous Twitter fail whale? With any luck, it’s been a while — the microblogging outfit is boasting that it withstood a one-second peak of 143,199 Tweets earlier this month. This volley of updates stands not only as a new record for tweets per second (the previous record topped out at 33,338), but as a sign for the social network’s stability. Twitter’s Raffi Krikorian took to the company’s engineering blog to elaborate.

Three years ago, the World Cup brought Twitter to its knees — crashing the service with nearly every play. Krikorian says the experience gave the company pause, prompting them reevaluate its approach to managing traffic. “We learned a lot. We changed our engineering organization.” Krikorian goes on to detail the transformation, explaining how the firm tweaked its programming models, architecture, services, applications and storage databases to eliminate bottlenecks and increase stability. “We’re now able to withstand events like Castle in the Sky viewings, the Super Bowl, and the global New Year’s Eve celebration.” All of the above topics are addressed at length, but Twitter promises future blog updates diving into each subject at even greater length. So, curious as to why exactly you haven’t missed out on any of @GeorgeTakei’s quirky banter? Check out the attached source link and find out.

Rogers LTE Rocket Hub supports up to 15 simultaneous users, requires electrical outlet

Rogers LTE Rocket Hub supports up to 15 simultaneous users, requires electrical outletTrying to find a mobile hotspot that’s a bit less mobile? Rogers’ exclusive LTE Rocket Hub might be the pick for you, delivering 40 Mbps ordinary download speeds with support for up to 15 simultaneous wireless tool connections. LTE service is currently offered in 28 cities above the border, however places without the current network can hop on HSPA + to get connected. The component is set to ship beginning August 2nd, and unlike the provider’s existing Rocket Mobile Hotspot, this bigger taste will certainly require an electrical outlet– however with more than a dozen hookups and a 10 event LTE cap (which we presume applies here as well), you will certainly require to unplug once in a while.

HP VantagePoint offers a 132-inch multitouch display with 32 simultaneous touchpoints

HP VantagePoint

It looks like HP has just one-upped the launch of Samsung’s SUR40 Microsoft Surface: the company has just announced the HP VantagePoint, a massive 132-inch multitouch display wall. The VantagePoint actually consists of six HP LD4730 47-inch displays (covered in Gorilla Glass) all linked together to create an 11- by 7-foot display with a total resolution of 4098 x 1536. A professional-grade HP Z800 workstation handles the audio and video processing, while an HP Pavilion Slimline acts like a giant remote to controls audio volume and color contrast for each individual panel.

All of this technology will set you back about $ 125,000, so HP is exclusively marketing this device as a commercial tool for businesses to use to engage their…

AT&T fires back with latest iPhone ad: simultaneous voice and web more important than you think (video)

We get it AT&T, your iPhone can do voice and data at the same time, and Verizon’s can’t. Big Red’s Test Man proved that calls aren’t always doomed to drop on the iPhone, but AT&T’s firing right back and saying how you could be doomed in certain social situations, like forgetting to make a dinner reservation on your anniversary. Props for creativity here, but now that both sides have fired a shot across the other’s bow, can’t we all just get along? Yeah, probably not.
