Can Intel Grow Without The PC Market Growing?

Can Intel Grow Without The PC Market Growing?

Intel said 2016 sales will climb in the “mid single-digit” percent range and said it didn’t need a buoyant personal-computer market to make piles of dosh. Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich told analysts that Intel’s growth was not dependent on its PC business. Intel is facing a weaker PC market and said that its revenue has been bolstered by demand for high-powered processors that run servers, the building blocks of cloud-computing centers. Additionally, orders for memory chips...

nVidia Launches SDKs For Virtual Reality

nVidia has unveiled the first version of two new virtual reality (VR) software development kits (SDKs). The company said at the release of version 1.0 of GameWorks VR and DesignWorks VR that the SDKs will solve the power-guzzling problems associated with complex, immersive VR graphics processing. “VR promises to dramatically change the way we experience everyday life, but delivering VR is a complex challenge, especially since it requires seven times the graphics processing power of traditional...

Researchers Conduct Quantum Computing On Silicon

Computer engineers down under have claimed a breakthrough in quantum computing through coding which suggests that silicon can be used as the foundation for a powerful quantum computer. The breakthrough was made by researchers at Australia’s University of New South Wales (UNSW), who found that a quantum version of computer code can be written and manipulated using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip. Using this theory, the scientists created an experiment based on a phenomenon known as quantum...

Amazon Finally Goes Two-Factor

Amazon Finally Goes Two-Factor

Amazon is making it a little, or a lot, harder for miscreants to make off with user accounts by adding two-factor authentication. It has taken Amazon some time to fall into line on this. Two-factor authentication has become increasingly popular and common in the past couple of years, and it is perhaps overdue for a firm that deals so heavily in trade. Amazon is treating it like it’s new, and is offering to hold punters’ hands as they embrace the security provision. “Amazon Two-Step...

AMD Appears To Be Pushing It’s Boltzmann Plan

Troubled chipmaker AMD is putting a lot of its limited investment money into the “Boltzmann Initiative” which is uses heterogeneous system architecture ability to harness both CPU and AMD GPU for compute efficiency through software. VR-World says that stage one results are finished and where shown off this week at SC15. This included a Heterogeneous Compute Compiler (HCC); a headless Linux driver and HSA runtime infrastructure for cluster-class, High Performance Computing (HPC); and the Heterogeneous-compute...

Dyreza Trojan Appears To Be Targeting Windows 10

An infectious banking trojan has been updated so that it supports financial mayhem on the freshly baked Windows 10 operating system and supporting Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft reckons that Windows 10 is installed on over 100 million machines, and this suggests prime picking for people who deploy banking trojans, not to mention the fact that most people will still be getting used to the software and its services and features. The newest edition to the Windows 10 spectrum is a variant of the Zeus...

Will Microsoft Debut A Lumia Business Phone Next Year?

Microsoft surprised the world when its new phone range failed to contain anything to interest business users – now it seems it is prepared to remedy that. Microsoft promised that its Lumia range would cover the low end, business and enthusiast segments but while the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 650 should cover the low-end segment as well nothing has turned up for business users. This was odd, given that business users want phones that play nice with their networks, something that Redmond...

Amazon To Use Wind Farm To Power Web Services

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced that it will build and operate a 100-megawatt (MW) wind farm in Ohio that will power its current and future cloud service data centers. The project, called the Amazon Wind Farm US Central, is expected to generate about 320,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of wind power per year beginning in May 2017; that’s enough electricity to power more than 29,000 U.S. homes a year. While AWS’s latest wind farm is dwarfed by previously announced projects, it is still...

Samsung Boots Two-Thirds Of It’s R&D Staff

November 24, 2015 by   | Category: Computing

Samsung Electronics is about to decrease personnel at its Samsung Seoul R&D Campus by as many as two-thirds in order to restructure its business model and operations A new report from ChosunBiz said that Samsung originally aimed to house around 10,000 personnel on the site. However the majority of the decreases will be applied to Samsung’s Digital Media & Communication (DMC) and Media Solutions Centre (MSC). The campus will instead house about 3,500 staff who have master and PhD degrees...

Mobile OS Sailfish Continues To Struggle, Layoffs Loom

With Android and iOS controlling most of the mobile operating system market, it’s tough going for alternatives like Sailfish, now in survival mode as its maker, Jolla, moves to lay off a large part of its workers. The first smartphone with the Linux-based OS shipped at the end of 2013. Adoption of Sailfish has been weak, however, and Jolla is selling only one smartphone model, via the company’s website, for about $303. It’s a Jolla-branded phone, made by a third-party contract...

IBM Introduces New Technology For Data Protection

At the beginning of the year IBM announced Identity Mixer, a new technology for protecting users’ personal data during authentication. On Friday, it announced that the technology is now available to developers on its Bluemix cloud platform. It’s common for apps to require that users prove their identity and other credentials, but all too often that authentication process exposes a raft of unnecessary and potentially sensitive personal information along the way. To access an online streaming-movie...

Earth Like Planet Exposed To Too Much Radiation For Life

One of the most Earth-like alien planets ever discovered may not be capable of supporting life, a new study reports. Every few hundred days, the host star of Kepler-438b — an exoplanet just 12 percent wider than Earth that appears to be the right temperature to host life as we know it — blasts out “superflares” of high-energy radiation more powerful than any eruption ever recorded from our sun, the researchers said. These flares by themselves likely do not have much of an impact on...

Apple Acknowledges Issue With iPad Pro

Some iPad Pro owners have reported strange behavior in their new 12.9-inch tablets. Normally when you charge a device, unless the battery has completely died, the screen remains responsive. But some iPad Pros are completely freezing, then dying, after a recharge. The problem appears to be widespread — Apple’s support communities are filled with complaints about the issue. Apple knows about the problem, but hasn’t said why it’s happening. There doesn’t seem to be a real fix for it, either...

Samsung Debuts 10nm FinFET S-RAM

Samsung appears to have stolen a march on Intel and TSMC by coming up with a 10-nano FinFET processed S-RAM According to Electronic Times Intel and TSMC’s products are still being processed at 14-nano and 16-nano so Samsung’s 10-nano S-RAM, will open the way for a generation of Giga-Smartphones. S-RAM is faster than D-RAM and is used for CPU’s cache memory. It means that Samsung’s 10-nano technology will be mass-produced on full-scale in early 2017. The theory is that 10-nano AP will...

IBM Says 2015 Was The Year Of Ransomware

IBM has claimed that sophisticated criminals are responsible for 80 percent of cyber attacks, and that there are probably a lot of kids and amateurs accounting for the remaining 20 percent. The IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Quarterly 4Q 2015 (PDF) described this 20 percent as “script kiddies”, claiming that the attacks reveal their amateurishness. However, when people are not messing about they are able to carry out some catastrophic and expensive hacktrocities. “The script kiddies...
