hyperspace

/hi:'per-spays/ A memory location that is *far* away from where the program counter should be pointing, often inaccessible because it is not even mapped in. (Compare jump off into never-never land.)

This usage is from the SF notion of a spaceship jumping "into hyperspace", that is, taking a shortcut through higher-dimensional space - in other words, bypassing this universe. The variant "east hyperspace" is recorded among CMU and Bliss hackers.

HyperSpace

An instant-on operating system from Phoenix Technologies Ltd. (www.hyperspace.com) that can run stand-alone or co-exist with Windows. As soon as the computer is turned on, the Linux-based HyperSpace enables access to the Web and other HyperSpace applications. It draws less power than Windows and can provide as much as 30% more running time on a battery charge. HyperSpace also automatically switches the computer between Ethernet, Wi-Fi and 3G networks.

HyperSpace Single runs as the primary operating system in the computer. HyperSpace Dual runs side-by-side with Windows. See instant-on operating system.
