Will Microsoft’s Arcadia Bring Streaming To The Xbox One?

It’s already been widely reported that Microsoft is working on game-streaming technology, long enough that the company has apparently started over at least once. According to a new ZDNet report, Microsoft halted work on one such project called “Rio,” and has since begun building a new streaming service code-named “Arcadia.” ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley cites sources within Microsoft with the news that Arcadia is being worked on by a new team in the company’s Operating...

You can hear the eerie interstellar vibrations in a video, courtesy of NASA. “Most people would have thought the interstellar medium would have...

Will ARM Have A Profitable 2015?

Canaccord Genuity analyst Matt Ramsey argues that ARM is still a ‘Buy’ stock, as it’s trading at $43, while his price target is $54 to $56. Ramsay is upbeat for a number of reasons and the 64-bit craze is one o them. He pointed out that sales of ARMv8 chips are raping up and are no longer limited to Apple. Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 810 is...

HGST Buys Skyera Cloud Services

HGST has bought flash memory specialist Skyera after weeks of speculation. Skyera, a startup offering cloud server arrays at prices comparable to those offered by traditional spindle drives, was already considered ripe for a takeover. The company will be absorbed into HGST, the parent of which, Western Digital, was an early funder of Skyera along with Dell, Toshiba and Micron, giving it unprecedented access to NAND technology from the inside. Western Digital is clearly pleased with what it has bought...

Is Borderlands Headed To The Xbox One And PS4?

Sources are sighting a rating seen on the Australian classifications that seem to point to an upcoming Remastered Edition of Borderlands is coming for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. So far this has remained unconfirmed by publisher 2K and franchise developer Gearbox. The new remastered version is expected to be simply called “Borderlands Remastered Edition”, but with no confirmation from 2K and Gearbox it is difficult to say what all it might contain or if it is simply a converted and compiled version...

Will Astronomers Ever Find Dark Matter?

Scientists have long known about dark matter, a mysterious substance that neither emits nor absorbs light. But despite decades of searching, they have not yet detected dark matter particles. With ten times the sensitivity of previous detectors, three recently funded dark matter experiments — the Axion Dark Matter eXperimen Gen 2, LUX-ZEPLIN and the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search at the underground laboratory SNOLAB — have scientists crossing their fingers that they may finally glimpse these...

Astronomers Find Another Super-Earth Like Planet

Finding Earthlike planets beyond our solar system has largely been the work of space-based telescopes, but new observations from a remote island suggest that could change. The Nordic Optical Telescope on La Palma — one of the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa — observed 55 Cancri e, a planet twice the size of Earth, as it passed in front of its parent star and caused a dip in the star’s brightness, according to a new study. This is the first time a planet in this “super-Earth”...

Did Astronomers Find A Signal From Dark Matter?

Astronomers may finally have detected a signal of dark matter, the mysterious and elusive stuff thought to make up most of the material universe. While poring over data collected by the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton spacecraft, a team of researchers spotted an odd spike in X-ray emissions coming from two different celestial objects — the Andromeda galaxy and the Perseus galaxy cluster. The signal corresponds to no known particle or atom and thus may have been produced by dark matter,...
