Crusoe processor

An x86-based CPU chip from Transmeta Corporation that was designed for Internet appliances and mobile devices. Debuting in 2000, it consumed less power than mobile x86 chips from Intel, AMD and others because it placed more of the processing burden on the software. Running Windows and Linux applications, Crusoe used a software translation layer known as "Code Morphing" that turned x86 instructions into Crusoe instructions. This layer allowed the chip to be used for other instruction sets as well. See Transmeta.

Daniel Defoe achieved great popular success with his tale of Robinson Crusoe surviving shipwreck on a remote island, but his subsequent works The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe and Serious Reflection during the Life and Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe: With His View of the Angelick World failed to generate much reader interest and should be viewed as the story of a failed speech act, according to this study, which applies discourse analysis and relevance theory to readings of the three works in an analysis of how reader reception and publishers that abridged Defoe's writings came to create the work as much as the writing of Defoe himself.
