Facebook now wants a say in computer hardware

10bbf75338d45bc0e28a2891a74a7bf3(Reuters) – Facebook, the world’s largest social network, wants to get in on computer hardware as well. The company that revolutionized social networking on the Internet has teamed up with some of tech hardware’s biggest names — Hewlett Packard Co, Dell Inc, Advanced Micro Devices, and Intel Corp — to launch the “open compute project.” CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the project aims to offer specifications and designs for more power-efficient computers that are specifically geared toward running Internet services, shared openly with other companies.
