Machine learning, self-healing and reprogrammable data centers? If #Intel  has their way, #FPGA s will make that a reality.
In June of last year, Intel announced a $16.7B acquisition of chip designer Altera, a Silicon Valley bellwether known for producing FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays), PLDs (Programmable Logic Devices), Embedded Processors, and ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits). At the time of the announcement, Intel CEO Bryan Krzanich said,

#Andromeda marries the best of ChromeOS and #Android
Google has plenty of hardware to reveal at its October 4th event, but one product in particular — which just so happens to be further down the pipeline — has the blogosphere exploding with anticipation. Over the weekend, Hiroshi Lockheimer, the Senior VP for Android, Chrome and Google Play, dropped a tantalizing hint with the following tweet: We

#Cellebrite shows off its #smartphone #hacking prowess.
Security firm Cellebrite made headlines earlier this year when its services were employed by the FBI to help break into the phone of the San Bernardino shooter. Cellebrite recently invited a bunch of UK press to an event to show off what it's capable of. Equipped with an outdated smartphone, BBC reporter Rory Cellan-Jones went off for a

I don't mean to brag, but I can crack just about any smartphone as well. Give me a door or tire iron and about five seconds.

#NCSU researchers develop chaos-based circuits to leapfrog #MooresLaw
Moore's Law, as revised in 1975, states the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit will double around every two years. The observation is named after Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel and Fairchild Semiconductor, and it's driven processor design for several decades. But what happens when Moore's Law is no longer feasible? Researchers

#Roku's streaming family gets a top-to-bottom refresh to tackle today's #4K streaming needs.
Roku’s new streaming player family has been rumored for weeks, but the veil has finally been officially lifted. The all-new lineup includes players priced as low as $30 and tops out at $130 for the Roku Ultra. Starting at the bottom, we have the $30 Roku Express, which is in essence a replacement for the venerable Roku 1. The unit itself

The future data center is a network of processors, #FGPA s and machine learning systems - and #Intel  seems to have the right idea.

#GooglePlay hits the stable channel for #ChromeOS
It's been a long wait, but Chrome OS now finally and officially supports Android apps, though you'll need an Acer Chromebook R11 or Asus Chromebook Flip to enjoy the new luxury. If so, you can grab a Chrome OS update from the Stable channel (version 53.0.27815.129), which among other things includes a beta for the Google Play Store, Google

#Microsoft says that is let the cat out of the bag early on #ProjectScorpio to present gamers with all console options to avoid future backlash. 
Microsoft chose this year's E3 convention to announce not one, but two new game consoles, the Xbox One S and Project Scorpio, the latter a codename for an upgraded version of the Xbox One that will sport more powerful hardware and support playing games at 4K Ultra HD when it arrives in next year. While it may feel like Microsoft jumped the

I don't think that everything will end in a constant 1up. Gamers everywhere would be pissed.

Check that fancy #IoT  device son. You could be a zombie spraying #DDoS  attacks.
The web is becoming the wild, wild west all over again it seems. You could argue the Internet's always been a potentially dangerous place, but with the proliferation of smart devices becoming increasingly commonplace, cybercriminals now have more points of entry into home networks than ever before.

An interesting patent filing from #Microsoft  here could lay the foundation for more powerful contextually aware computing - if you're OK with the #privacy  implications...
We’ve stated on many occasions that Windows 10 is an excellent operating system, albeit one with a few rough edges that could be smoothed-out. However, Microsoft has angered some users over the past year or so, in its willingness to dance right up to the line of what customers feel is acceptable practice for promoting adoption of its new OS.
