AXI interfacing with Chisel
I recently started using Chisel , a hardware construction language from UC Berkeley implemented as a Scala DSL. Although it still has some rough edges, it's definitely usable and I really like how it can map the same description into Verilog or a cycle-accu...

Moto X has dual CPU cores, quad GPU cores, a natural language processing core and a "contextual computing" core processing sensor data. That's a nice variety of heterogeneous cores!

The Snapdragon 600 at the heart of the 8-core Galaxy S4 has a good heterogeneous/asymmetric multicore concept (4 "big" cores for performance, 4 "small" cores for energy efficiency) but unfortunately the battery lifetime benchmarks don't reflect this. The lesson is that heterogeneity's energy benefits amount next to nothing if the software doesn't do its part (i.e allocating the correct tasks to the correct cores).

There are some reassuring comments from the XDA forums about the firmware not being finalized, it'll be interesting to see what it can do once there is better software support.

Randall Mundroe gave me the goosebumps with this. Again.

Anyone tried "MyScript Stylus (Beta)" ?  What do you think?
I just found out about it and gave it a go, my first impression is that it's much better than Samsung's solution for text input based on handwriting recognition (at least on the 4.3 firmware).

Still, I find the "write handwritten text in scrolling entry box, recognized text appears in original textbox" method a bit clumsy for note-taking. I'd love to see some note-taking app solution which replaces the handwritten text "in-place" with recognized letters.

I've been using MyScript Stylus for months and I really appreciate it. Join MyScript Stylus on G+ for mor info.
For a note-taking app that replaces automatically handwritten text to text try My Notes from MyScript it works quite well but for my S Note is even better.

Regardless of what you might think of the ubiquity of the "Big Data" meme, it's clear that the growing size of datasets is changing the way we approach the world around us. This is true in fields from industry to government to media to academia and virtually everywhere in between.

Samsung caught red-handed. They were "optimizing" benchmark results on the Galaxy S4. Ouch.

feeling sleepy and demotivated in the afternoon? apparently, the solution is dancing crazy for an hour at lunchtime ("Lunchbeat") :)
Känner du dig trött och icke-kreativ på eftermiddagarna? Prova att byta ut lunchmackan mot en timmes intensiv diskodans. Fenomenet Lunchbeat sprider sig nu över Sverige.

the government really means business with this project, hat I know, but unfortunately the ministry of education's technical advisers I had found to be... rather un-technical. I'll be watching this with interest, since the company I work for will probably benefit from this as well ;)
