Microsoft To End Detailed Security Bulletins

Microsoft discontinue issuing detailed security bulletins in February, which for nearly 20 years have provided individual users and IT professionals information about vulnerabilities and their patches. One patching expert crossed his fingers that Microsoft would make good on its pledge to publish the same information when it switches to a new online database. “I’m on the fence right now,” said Chris Goettl, product manager with patch management vendor Shavlik, of the demise of...

Will A.I. Help nVidia And AMD Dethrone Intel?

The move to AI could be the one catalyst which could help AMD and Nvidia carve up Intel’s mighty kingdom. Last year saw Microsoft, Apple, Google develop more software for ARM based chips. During the year AMD and Nvidia saw their stock prices rise as shareholders started to think that they might succeed in taking Intel’s crown. On of the reasons for this is AI which is fast becoming a bigger buzz world than Interent of Things – which is the basket Intel is putting its eggs into. AMD and Nvidia...

Are Notebooks Making Gains Against Tablets?

Notebooks, which had been written off by the Tame Apple Press after Steve Jobs showed off his tablets, are now back. Beancounters working for Deloitte have found that the sales of slates are expected to be down 10 per cent in 2017 compared to last year and there will probably be 165 million units leaving the shops. This is a third less than the total number of slates shifted in 2014 when 230 million tablets were sold. PC and laptops however are expected to stay at the same level as last year, and...

Is Intel Worried About Qualcomm?

Last week at CES 2017 we noticed that Intel felt so unsecure about itself that it used a big curtain to hide the Qualcomm logo from the booth next door. This really happened and we were lucky to document it.  Intel and Qualcomm had booths next to each other at CES 2017 and this has been going on for a few CES shows. The difference this year, was that Intel ordered a huge curtain to block the view to Qualcomm’s logo standing on the side of the booth. Qualcomm didn’t. We are not sure how the...

IBM Is Still The Patent King

IBM received the most patents for the 24th year in a row and broke the US record in 2016. It had 8,088 patents granted to its inventors over the 12 months covering areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), cognitive computing, cloud, health and cyber security. No other company in US history has managed to get 8,000 patents in a single...

Is Apple PC Division Faltering?

While the Tame Apple Press is doing its best to claim that Apple will replace Microsoft as the world’s leading OS, it appears to be covering a story which shows that the fruity cargo cult is losing ground in in PCs. According to web analytics vendor Net Applications,  it has found that Apple’s desktop and notebook operating system — formerly OS X, now macOS — powered just 6.1 percent of all personal computers last month. This is a significant fall from the seven percent it held...

Will The Snapdragon 835 Beat Its Predecessor?

Qualcomm shared with us a few interesting facts about the Snapdragon 835.

It is obvious that Snapdragon 820 will get replaced by the Snapdragon 835 due to its 25 percent less power, new CPU with eight cores, divided into two clusters,...
