Chip rumor-gasm: Intel to buy Altera! Samsung to buy AMD! ... or not

Alan Denman

Samsung AMD one sounds a bit rubbish

AMD has the xbox/playstion business but that is about it.

They would likely need to buy at a heavy discount, the only way looks down for AMD.

Don't buy it for GPS

All that metal makes for blotchy non 360 degrees satellite reception.

In an ideal world you don't even want silicon blocking it, never mind that pretty metal shield.

Could be worse, it could be a quite screwed up Asus Transformer.

The Corp image

Whilst the family just get on with their own lives ignoring the often inaccurate hysterical media, Apple Corp have all their dollars to think of.

Dollars matter far more than any truths. That is the truth.

Gear S should be called the Gear Night Out.

It being 3G I can't see much other appeal apart from it being the watch for 'down the boozer'.

All those mega expensive watches have one thing in common though, that being exactly the same as what Apple has, 99% all marketing and perception.

Maybe they will turn 'plain ugly' into everyone's wish list.

The Patent problem

Surely, if we expand the patent validity to self driving cars it will be mandated that every car that is not Google driven will be barred from going round curved corners.

I read the FT one so you all don't have to bother

As stated above, it really had absolutely nothing to offer so as to make one feel robbed of previous time.

It was so absolutely sanitised it might even have simply been pre-written, no attendance needed.

So what are they really up to?

It might be just Trident with the old layers removed but can't help think it is some embedded app movement.

It is all quite interesting as we have already Webkit on go slow due to a lacklustre 'no profit in it for us' ownership and Presto now gone.

Don't pay for the BBC? Then no Doctor Who for you, I'm afraid

Alan Denman

BBC earnings give extra value

It might be best to switch to a '100% of households' tax at say £110 per year.

The total cost ain't even a single pint of beer per week highlighting the value of the collective.

It is also worth mentioning that the upcoming removal of BBC 3 is looking extremely suspicious.

Get the wrong directors/trust workers and we suddenly find people plotting for privatisation cash bonuses earned from corrupt thinking by those 'who would be king'.

And the buggiest OS provider award goes to ... APPLE?

Obscurity versus no obscurity

Seems strange that proprietary Apple relies on obscurity so they should really have less 'visible' holes.

Quite worrying, far more so than the continued non reporting of their often flaky OS systems.

Now you have 2015 tech to be made obsolete in 2017

'Cloud based'.

Are you having a laugh. It is proprietary garbage to be paid for time and time again.

If it was Cloud and HTML based you could have planned for the next 10+ years of Firefox, Chrome, Opera etc.

AMD's new Carrizo: The x86 notebook processor that thinks it's a GPU

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

Another day, another theme?

Personally, I thought AMD was winding down its PC businesses, sticking to both serving Xbox and Sony.

Looking inside shops I gather they are 99% there, so is this all a pretence that Intel does not now have an absolute x86 monopoly.

(I'm ignoring the PC business where they still have a presence, mainly via home builds.)

Samsung pulls ahead of Qualcomm in mobe chip race with 14nm Exynos

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

14nm = 20nm = one up two down.

All marketing I am afraid.

Seems it has gone 3D so that you have one transistor on top for every two below.

So 14nm is simply 20nm in 3D.

Could they also call it 13.66 nm ?

Qualcomm, ARM: We thought we had such HOT MODELS...

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

Qualcomms main problem was its patents.

China really fined them for conflict of interest to prevent that a monopoly that we can all see happening.

Competition ensures development and that is what helps ARM.

Just maybe the rest of the world will see that the mobile patents reducing choice down to one in many a country, though that might get corrected to two.

The second being Intel who have enough patents so as not to be blocked out.

So 'then there was two' ?
