COMPUTER MEETINGS PLANNED FOR FIRST COAST

BIG FIRMS TEAM-UP ON 'PEER' STANDARDS

Intel Corp., the No. 1 computer-chip maker, said it formed a group to study business applications for peer-to-peer computing, which lets users share files and processing power over the Internet and other networks.

So-called peer-to-peer technology can help companies increase efficiency by letting workers exchange and share computing resources using a corporate network, Intel said.

The group's 19 member companies, including International Business Machines Corp. and Hewlett-Packard Co., will hold their first meeting Sept. 26 to start developing peer-to-peer computing standards for security, storage and compatibility.

Intel 10 years ago developed its own version of the technology called NetBatch, which lets engineers submit a job to a central system that assigns chunks of tasks to computers at Intel plants around the world. NetBatch processes 2.7 million jobs a month and has saved the company hundreds of millions of dollars in software and equipment costs, Intel said.

PLENTY PACKED INTO ECHO DIGITAL ASSISTANT

Oregon Scientific has packed a lot into a very small package with the Echo personal digital assistant, or PDA.

The $79.95 Echo is billed as the smallest synchronizable PDA. About the length and width of a business card and a mere 0.25-inch thick, the Echo weighs less than two ounces.

Its size may draw users in, but its features will keep them happy.

The Echo comes with a PC docking cradle and Companion Link software to synchronize data with Microsoft Outlook, Act!, GoldMine, Lotus Organizer and Schedule+. Just tell the software which organizer package you use, and the Echo pulls the data right in.
