Will Intel Succeed In Banking With Blockchain?

The Intel backed blockchain project has apparently passed its tests with more than eight finance outfits on their bond transactions. For those that came in late, blockchain is similar technology which is behind bitcoin and is being looked at by the finance houses as a secure way to carrying out banking translations. Intel has baded a financial innovation start-up R3 to push the tech and it trialed it with eight banks, including HSBC and State Street. The platform featured advanced smart contract...

Is The Firefox OS History?

Big Cheeses at the Mozzarella Foundation have announced that they are killing off the Firefox OS. For those who came in late, the OS was supposed to be part of a cunning plan to provide a new sort of operating system for mobiles as an alternative to Android. However, it was greeted by a loud sounding yawn by customers and manufacturers alike. Now Mozilla has said that it will stop its efforts to build and ship smartphones through carrier partners. Apparently it had a cunning plan to re-position the...

Astronomers Discover The Galactic Bones Of The Milky Way

The skeleton of the Milky Way galaxy is coming into focus: A group of researchers recently dug up a cache galactic “bones” using a method that could answer key questions about these objects. Galactic “bones” are long, cold, dense filaments of gas that have been discovered running through the center of the Milky Way’s spiral arms. But many other filaments have also been found in the fringes of the galactic arms, or in between them, prompting questions about where these...

Are Developers Giving Up On The Oculus Rift

Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe has emphasized the freedom that Oculus VR allows its employees to support their personal views, a freedom he said also applied to Palmer Luckey. In a post on his Facebook page, Iribe spoke about Luckey’s regret at the negative impact the situation had created for “the company, our partners, and the industry.” However, he offered a measure of support for Oculus VR’s founder, citing Luckey’s right to independent political beliefs. “Everyone...

DoesThe PS4 Pro Truly Offer 4K Gaming?

DoesThe PS4 Pro Truly Offer 4K Gaming?

A little bit of clarity can go a long way. A few weeks ago at the reveal of the PS4 Pro, in a staff roundtable I questioned whether Sony’s new console would hurt Microsoft’s chances with the more powerful Scorpio. I also gave Sony an edge because of its HDR rollout to all PS4s. As it turns out, the HDR update is practically useless (no games supported yet and no video streaming) and the PS4 Pro itself will see most games upscaled, according to Sony Interactive boss Andrew House. While...

Hawking’s Still Does Not Want To Deal With E.T.

Hawking’s Still Does Not Want To Deal With E.T.

Humanity should be wary of seeking out contact with alien civilizations, Stephen Hawking has warned once again. In 2010, the famed astrophysicist said that intelligent aliens may be rapacious marauders, roaming the cosmos in search of resources to plunder and planets to conquer and colonize. He reiterates that basic concern in “Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places,” a new documentary streaming now on the CuriosityStream video service. “One day, we might receive a signal from...

Virtual Reality Devices On The Rise

The numbers of VR-enabled smartphones and tablets, as well as shipments of VR devices bundled with gaming consoles or PCs will grow like topsy in the fourth quarter. Beancounters at Digitimes Research have added up some numbers and divided by their shoe size and reached the conclusion that we should see some significant changes in the VR market soon. Shipments of VR video-enabled smartphones and VR devices bundled with consoles will be higher compared to other devices. Vendors of VR-enabled tablets...

MediaTek Goes For Two With TSMC

While Intel has admitted it can’t build a 10nm chip, Mediatek is planning to release two of them using TSMC’s process. According to the Economic Daily News MediaTek is considering rolling out two versions of its 10nm chips, the Helio X30 for high-end smartphones and the X35 for the lower-end segment. It said that it will start volume production for the Helio X30-series SoCs as scheduled between the end of 2016 and early-2017. It is also thinking of having another 10nm series designed for mid-...

Astronomers Solve Space Blob Mystery

A giant blob of gas and dust far off in the universe mysteriously glows bright green, and astronomers have finally figured out why. Two huge galaxies were observed in the blob’s core, and they’re surrounded by a swarm of smaller galaxies in what appears to be the birth of a massive cluster of galaxies. Astronomers spotted the blob’s central galaxies using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and the Very Large Telescope at the European Southern Observatory in...

AMD 7nm APU Goes Gray Hawk

A few of you might remember that we exclusively posted the news that AMD is working on a 7nm CPU codenamed Starship. The 7nm APU is codenamed Gray Hawk and it aims to attain lower TDPs. The AMD Starship X86 CPU is a 7nm unit with up to 48 cores and 96 threads and this definitely targets the high end server market as well as performance desktop computers. These CPUs will have a range of TDP values from 35W all the way to 180W. It is safe to assume that the version with 35W TDP ends up with much less...

Can Qualcomm Win The 5G Race?

Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf has been telling the world how it is going to win the 5G war which will bring about a bold new world based around the Internet of Things. Writing in his bog, Mollenkopf claimed that Qualcomm was leading the way to 5G for the next 10 years and beyond. He said that there will be 3G and 4G connected people, but 5G is going to connect everything. “It’s a unifying, more capable communications fabric that will take on a much bigger role than previous generations...

Can Tatooine Like Planets Rise From Ashes?

Worlds with two close suns, like the fictional planet Tatooine in “Star Wars,” may be just as common as their single-star cousins — and sometimes, like a mythological phoenix, such planets might be born from the ashes of one star’s death.  A new study reveals that the most massive worlds occur nearly as often around tight pairs of stars as they do around singles. While most planets that orbit one star came into being along with their sun, some of the worlds orbiting two tightly...

Is The IOT Really Taking Off?

While every IT company in the entire universe appears to be hyping the internet of things (IoT) as the next big thing, there’s very little substance to the claims. That’s according to Malcolm Penn, chairman and CEO of semiconductor analyst firm Future Horizons. Speaking at a conference in London, Penn said: “The IoT is overhyped but some common sense is entering. The IoT is not one space. Everybody has their own spin on it.” He said that the next phase of the IoT is “mercifully not wearables”...

Notebook Sells Spike In August

Figures just in for August show that there has been a spike in the sales of notebooks. Beancounters at Digitimes research have added up some numbers and divided by their shoe size and come to the conclusion that the top-5 notebook vendors and top-3 notebook ODMs saw their shipments rise 27 percent  and 31 percent a month in August. While it could mean that the notebook recession is over, the beancounters think that the spike is due to inventory preparation for the year-end holidays in Europe and...

Does Space Dust Reveal Doomed Black Holes?

A doomed star falling into a black hole may produce a flare of light that “echoes” through nearby dust clouds, according to two new studies.  Monster black holes can be millions of times more massive than the sun. If a star happens to wander too close, the black hole’s extreme gravitational forces can tear the star into shreds, in an event called “stellar tidal disruption.”  This kind of stellar destruction may also spit out a bright flare of energy in the form of...
