Fast Infoset

A binary format standard for XML from the ITU-T and ISO that reduces the size of text-based XML files (XML infosets) and improves parsing speed. Based on ASN.1 notation, Fast Infoset files can be easily compressed to as little as 20% of their original size. When an external schema is used, they can be compressed to an extraordinary 5% of original size. See binary XML, XML and ASN.1.

Project Fi

A global wireless system for Android mobile devices from Google that supports Wi-Fi calling. Users seamlessly switch phone and data service between Wi-Fi hotspots and cellular. Introduced in 2015 and initially offered via invite-only, the Nexus 5x, 6 and 6p were the first phones to support Fi, which can be purchased directly from Google. Fi piggybacks over the Sprint and T-Mobile cellular networks along with more than a million free Wi-Fi hotspots that are automatically used.

A Cloud-Based Phone Number
Subscribers are given a phone number that can also be used to make phone calls and send text messages from their tablets and computers via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.

Fi Basics - USD $20 per Month
With no annual contract, the Basic plan provides unlimited domestic talk, low international rates in 120 countries and unlimited international texting. Each gigabyte of encrypted data is an additional $10/month, and unused bytes are credited to next month's bill. Family sharing plans were not initially offered. See Google Fiber.

Xeon Phi

A family of x86 coprocessors from Intel for parallel computing. Dubbed the "Many Integrated Core" (MIC) architecture, Xeon Phi chips run at lower speeds than ordinary Intel CPUs but make up for the speed with multiple cores. Xeon Phi chips can be used stand-alone or in conjunction with Intel's full-blown Xeon processors. The 50-core Knights Corner was the first implementation of the Xeon Phi line, followed by Knights Landing. See Xeon and high-performance computing.
