Austin will become Apple's second largest facility only behind the headquarters in Cupertino, CA (pictured). In addition to Austin, Apple is going to open new offices in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City. All of these additions seem to serve a purpose in attracting talent from the likes of Microsoft...

World's largest social media platform, Facebook, is constantly looking for new ways to monetize its user base of two billion. Now the company is negotiating with HBO to delivering pay TV to customers. If negotiations go as planned, Facebook intends to sell and deliver Facebook users with HBO and other pay TV content.

Intel's newest breakthrough is in three dimensional chips

After Dawn on 13/12/2018 pm31 18:49:00

For years upon years processors have been built largely in the same fashion. Technology has improved the precision and nanometers are chipping away as companies perfect techniques to built smaller and smaller chips. Intel has learned it can built the transistors in three dimensional space rather than just placing them next to each other in a level plane of silicon (like in the picture). As simple as it may seem, previously building transistors on top of each other hasn't been easily accessible. The new technology Intel calls Foveros could unlock a true breakthrough in chip manufacturing, Wired reports. It uses the same kind of technique used already in memory chips, where three dimensional manufacturing has been achieved. Foveros allows chips to include different... Read the article

Intel announces Sunny Cove: 10nm and +75% compression performance

After Dawn on 13/12/2018 pm31 15:25:00

Intel's lead in the desktop CPU space has been sufficient that there hasn't been any major strides made in the past few years. Perhaps it is feeling the pressure of Ryzens now, as next year's update seems more interesting. The chip manufacturer has announced next year's new CPU architecture that is known as Sunny Cove. Sunny Cove brings along a significant upgrade as it is the first desktop CPU Intel produces with 10nm technology. This improves the efficiency in a multitude of ways, one of which will be the compression performance. Intel claims that the upcoming processors improve on compression speeds by up to 75 percent over previous generation chips. Performance improvements can be seen also in cryptography, including of course both encryption... Read the article

Apple bringing a subcription news service to iPads and iPhones

After Dawn on 13/12/2018 pm31 15:09:00

It was iPad that was supposed to be the savior of the press whose beloved paper was in deep decline already in 2010 when Steve Jobs introduced the tablet. Virtual newspapers never caught on like many anticipated, and most of the news money has flown to internet conglomerates. A total of six billion dollars has disappeared from newspaper revenue in just three years in the States. Apple is looking to grab some of the money in transition, and, according to Bloomberg, has a new service in development. The Cupertino giant has been slowly inching its way towards content business, and especially subscription services. Apple Music was the biggest move, similar things are happening in the video entertainment space, and now Apple... Read the article

Puma's 80s computerized running shoes have been reintroduced

After Dawn on 12/12/2018 pm31 19:50:00

Puma introduced a futuristic running shoe in the 80s it called the RS-Computer. The company called these their first computerized running shoes. The product was meant for serious runners who wanted data, such as distance travelled and calories spent, from their running efforts. Now Puma has been struck by a retro spark as they are re-releasing the RS-Computer to the market. The new edition of Puma RS-Computer look almost identical to the original ones, and there's still the awkward bump in the back for the computer part. Obviously this would no longer be needed in "computerized shoes" as technology can fit in much smaller spaces, but Puma has decided to respect the original retro look from the 1980s. Puma has, however, updated... Read the article

As the year closes to an end, Google has released their traditional list of top searches for the year. There's a clear trend, and it's a rather gloomy one. Good news don't seem to be anywhere, so it is not a surprise that many of the top spots in Google searches were celebrities that died this year. Whether it was the untimely death of a 28-year-old DJ Avicii, the suicide of troubled chef Anthony Bourdain or the unfortunate although more expected passing of a legendary Stan Lee, top ten was filled with demise.
