On a network you can share hardware and software and avoid the expense of having to provide each workstation with duplicate programs and peripherals.

It is both software and hardware. 1. The software side is the iPhone Side. a. Siri is installed onto the iPhone at the Apple Manufacturing Plant and is then shipped out to you. b. The iPhone and the Siri servers communicate over the iPhone's 3G network 2. The hardware side are the Siri Servers. a. Apple runs and upkeeps servers at some location which provide responses to the iPhone and allow you to use Siri. b. The servers and Siri communicate over the iPhone's 3G network. So the answer is both.

It depends on whether you are referencing to hardware or software. When talking about hardware, it is a place where a piece of hardware can connect to another. When talking about software, interfaces provide access to data or computer resources, such as memory.

Computer comprises of two things - Hardware and SoftwareHardware is a comprehensive term for all of the physical parts of a computerRefers to objects that you can actually touch, like disks, disk drives, display screens, keyboards, printers, boards, and chips.Software is a collection of computer programs and related data that provide the instructions telling a computer what to do and how to do it.i.e. that tells the hardware what to do and how to do itsoftware is intangible, meaning it "cannot be touched. So there for the computer is hardware

Name says major difference between both. by the way Software RAID is created using feature provided by Operating System or any special software, but Hardware RAID is created using Hardware RAID controller Card. When you create RAID you are adding overheads to read and write operations. If you create software RAID and your server is too busy or you have many read and write operations you will see there is impact on performance. When you create HARDWARE RAID you will use dedicated controller with processor and some cache. This will not create overhead for your OS and you will find better performance. Software RAID will save some money for you but Hardware RAID will provide you value addition.

Hardware FirewallsFor the sake of simplicity, think of hardware firewalls as specialized network boxes that contain customized hardware and software. When properly configured, hardware firewalls provide a protective barrier that hides an organization's internal PCs from the outside world. They can also shield one company department (say, finance) from another (say, human resources).In many cases, hardware firewalls are great solutions for organizations that want a single security umbrella that protects multiple systems. For this very reason, most FORTUNE 500 networks have hardware firewalls in place.So what's the downside? Since they are specialized devices, hardware firewalls tend to be expensive, complicated, difficult to upgrade, and tricky to configure. In other words, they are best reserved for IT managers who are specially trained to install, configure, and monitor such devices.Low-end hardware firewalls, now found in network switches and routers for the home, also have their limitations. If you take a personal laptop on the road, for instance, your system is no longer protected by the home-based firewall.Software FirewallsIn contrast to their hardware cousins, software firewalls are more ideal for individual users or small businesses that have dial-up or broadband Internet connections. Instead of using a custom (and often expensive) piece of hardware, a software firewall installs on an individual's PC, notebook, or work group server.Even if an organization has hardware firewalls in place, it's wise for individuals to use software firewalls on their own systems. The main reason: software firewalls are especially convenient for mobile workers who need digital security when working outside of the corporate network. That's because the entire security solution is, in essence, a single application running on one's computer. Another major benefit, software firewalls are easily upgraded. Users simply download patches, fixes, updates, and enhancements from the firewall provider's web site, or the provider sends these improvements via the Internet.
