Intel Adds Another Core i7 To The Mix

Many were hoping that Intel’s new Core i7 4771 would at least get a new graphics core, but it turns out that the new king of the Haswell desktop hill only gets a small frequency bump. The graphics core remains the HD 4600, just as well as with the current king Core i7 4770 but the clock speed goes up to 3.5 GHz versus 3.4GHz with the previous version. The TDP remains at 84W, max Turbo stays at 3.9GHz so in real life there will be very little difference between the Core i7 4770 and Core i7 4771....

Is Android’s Root Access The Biggest Security Hole?

A top Android developer has questioned why Android the huge security hole which is the root requirement. Steve Kondik wrote that Android 4.3 introduces some new and much needed security features which not only restrict setuid binaries on the system partition (su), but also limit the capabilities of processes. In the current architecture, even if you could get elevated privileges, you can’t do anything out of the ordinary. Root in the shell via ADB is all I use, and it still works just fine,...

Do Cool Dwaft Stars Have Water-Trapped Worlds?

A new study takes a deeper look into the fate of life-permitting water on Earth-like planets around red dwarf stars, the most common stars in the universe. Many of these exoplanets quickly become “tidally locked,” with one side always facing their reddish star while the other side freezes in permanent night. The new research suggests that terrestrial, red dwarf-orbiting exoplanets with significantly less water than Earth might end up with almost all of their water “trapped”...
