Can Microsoft Help Linux Grow

A Docker and Google Cloud expert has packed her bags and headed to Microsoft claiming that Vole is going to be the next key Linux driver. Jessie Frazelle, who rose to prominence in the developer community with Docker and later Google Cloud, made the bold claim to justify her departure to Microsoft. For those who came in late, Microsoft was the “enemy” of the Open Source movement for many years. This was not helped by the shy and retiring CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, calling the Linux a cancer. ...

Did Qualcomm Inadvertently Help Apple

Qualcomm has published a blog post that praises itself and its Android partners for inventing all the industry firsts that Apple is claiming to have invented in its iPhone X. These include wireless charging, dual-camera systems, OLED smartphone screens, edge-to-edge displays, and more features that the upcoming iPhone X has. The blog is a reminder to Apple about how dependent the fruity cargo-cult is on Qualcomm technology. Inventions from Qualcomm lay the foundation for so many technologies and...

China Touts ‘Hack Proof’ Quantum Network

China has installed its first “commercial” quantum network in its northern province of Shandong, state media said, the country’s latest step in advancing a technology expected to enable “hack proof” communications. China touts that it is at the forefront of developing quantum technology. In August it said it sent its first “unbreakable” quantum code from an experimental satellite to the Earth. The Pentagon has called the launch of that satellite a year earlier a “notable advance”. Now...

Will 7nm SoCs Come To Market Next Year

The current generation of SoC and the one that comes after will remain at 10nm, since it will take some time to move to 7nm. This is the conclusion we gathered after talking to a number of industry insiders. Qualcomm is at 10nm with its Snapdragon 835, Samsung has shipped the Exynos 8895 since Q2 2017 while the rest of the competition is slowly working its way into the 10nm SoC universe. The current iPhone 7 A10 SoC is manufactured in 16nm TSMC manufacturing process while the one that comes in the...

Qualcomm’s  Snapdragon 625 Moving Into The Camera Space

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon enables 360-degree 4K video capture and live-streaming, spatial “surround-sound” audio recording. When launched in 2013, the Ricoh Theta was the world’s first 360-degree, single-shot camera, which easily let users capture and express themselves in new and unique ways. 360-degree still photos and videos redefined photography by giving the viewer the ability to control what he or she sees in a scene. In addition, the resulting 360-degree images were easily...

Is AMD Losing Money On Vega

Our industry sources have confirmed to Fudzilla that AMD loses at least $100 on every Vega 64 card it sells at its $499 Suggested Etail Price (SEP). The pricing of the HBM 2.0 memory, the packaging and substrate cost are simply too high to have a sustainable price of $499. We have mentioned this before, but Vega for AMD is not about making money. Don’t get me wrong, every company would like to make money with every product that it makes, but for AMD it is more important to win market share. First...
