ARM gets a financial boost for future development and SoftBank gets a high growth company in the ARM acquisition. thhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/tiriasresearch/2016/07/18/softbank-gives-a-shot-in-the-arm/
The value of the acquisition is high, but so is the potential payback given ARM’s consistent growth record and seemingly endless opportunities.

Are mid-range phones a compromise? The results may surprise you. http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=36&doc_id=1329669
What level phone should you buy if mid-range phones now sport premium-level features? A thorough testing and comparison of Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy A9, and Huawei Mate 8 may surprise you.

Autonomous vehicles, wearable IoT, smart cities, and security take center stage at NXP Semiconductors FTF Technology Forum next week. I will be at the event hosting the panel on automotive security. http://onforb.es/1X4YaLY
FTF, for lack of a better way to put it, is like an engineer’s playground.

While VR is capturing headlines, AR is the next frontier for companies like Microsoft and Oculus. http://onforb.es/1VYglmr
While their first consumer “Rift” virtual reality (VR) headsets are now shipping, at the recent San Jose Comic Con, there were hints the company has plans beyond VR. Oculus founder and CEO Lucky Palmer hinted that the company will eventually include augmented reality (AR). Mr. Palmer was on a panel [...]

Just image the auto ways from movies like the Minority Report – no stop lights, no checking the morning commute or waiting in traffic, and cars that can travel over 200 miles per hour (mph) without fear of an accident.

Autonomous cars may be closer than you think. NXP introduces a the BlueBox, an automotive computer platform for sensor fusion that interacts will all the automotive systems and is production ready. http://onforb.es/1srmzR7
With all the hype surrounding autonomous or self-driving cars, you’d think it was right around the corner. Well, you’d be right. The technology to build a self-driving car is here and is being demonstrated at their FTF Technology Forum in Austin this week using components NXP is already shipping. The talk [...]

AMD forms a JV to support Chinese designed x86 server SoCs. Now China has architecture licenses to all three major 64-bit CPU architectures - ARM, Power, & x86. http://onforb.es/22RiVL0
TIRIAS Research believes that it is likely to be the upcoming Zen core.

The company provides poor service and sub-par products. I have tried working with Brian, the manager on several projects and he is very bad at returning calls or e-mails. In addition, the one time we did purchase something from Kay Supply, some roofing underlayment, they sold us material from Bigfoot that was discontinued and leaked right after it was installed. When approached about the issue, we were told "it's not our problem, contact the manufacturer." I hate to provide a negative review of a local business, but I really recommend avoiding Kay Supply. The people at Home Depot and Lowe's provide much better products and service.

We contracted with Robert Klob Designs to complete the technical drawings for our dream home, a passive home design using ICFs. We provided Mr. Klob with our original hand drawn design and list of design requirements, but after 18 months, Mr. Klob failed to provide even a correct home layout. In addition, he continually avoided contact with us and had a list of excuses for every delay. As a result, we fired Robert Klob Designs, filed a complaint with the Arizona Better Business Bureau, and are now seeking legal action. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until after this experience that we found similar complaints against Mr. Klob and Robert Klob Designs. We strongly recommend anyone looking to build their dream home to seek a licensed architect, which Mr. Klob is not.

Stay away. Although I had a reservation, I was pushed to another hotel, not even a Marriott property, because they were over-booked. I was given no notice or choice. I'm even a Marriott Rewards member. I cannot believe a company would treat its best customers in this manner. Never again Marriott!

After 18 months of poor communication, excuses, and non-performance, I was forced to fire Robert Klob Designs and search for a licensed architect firm, which Robert Klob Designs is not. It was only after this experience that I found similar Better Business Bureau complaints. Recommendation: do your home work on the person and firm that you deal with and seek ONLY a licensed firm or individual.
