At long last Microsoft will make it possible to run Windows 10 on cheap low-powered PCs (like rinky-dink tablets) as well as on smartphones. For years, Microsoft has struggled to bring the full Windows experience to ultra-portable devices that run low-power chips that can’t handle the beefy OS. Previous attempts were…
The English-based chip design company ARM has announced its new silicon, and as well as churning the pixels, its new graphics chips will play nicely with your battery, too.
NASA has been working on a mission to redirect a near-Earth asteroid to a stable orbit around the moon, where astronauts will travel and return with samples. The Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM) is touted as part of the path to landing people on Mars. But there are a lot of critics of the mission.
Looks like ARM is trying to beef up its graphics offering; it just bought Geometrics, a long time partner that specializes in dynamic illumination tech, stuff that makes graphics look real, and real good. [GigaOM]
It at first you don't succeed, join forces with people that do things better than you. At least, that's what Intel is doing, as it starts producing ARM chips at its fabrication plants.
We just ran benchmarks on Apple's new iPhone 5S, revealing that, yup, this is the dopest smartphone silicon ever made. This thing freaking churns, crushing every other smartphone out there on both computational power and graphics. But if you look at common specs like core-count and clock speed for the hardware, you'd…
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that AMD is taking a leap into unknown waters, as it readies its first ever ARM chip.
Most galaxies, like the Milky Way, have two or more spiral "arms," but NGC 4725 only has one. Don't worry NGC 4725 you may be weird, but we still love you and think you're great looking. Space is a safe space.
Replacing fighter planes and reconnaissance aircraft with robotic drones turned out to be a far easier task for the military than replacing soldiers with bots. But DARPA remains determined to one day enlist robots for all military jobs, and among other research, it's working hard to develop a relatively low-cost set…
ARM has announced that its CEO Warren East is retiring after 19 years, to be replaced by current President Simon Segars.
Apple's Lightning Digital AV Adapter is 50 bucks. That's expensive. Apple's Lightning Digital AV Adapter hooks up your iOS devices' Lightning port to HDMI. But it lags and gives artifacts. Apple's Lightning Digital AV adapter actually hides a tiny computer inside in the cable...wait what? Yes.
Manufactured by Freescale, this chunk of silicon claims to be the world's smallest ARM-powered chip. Measuring just 2 x 2 x 0.5 millimeters, it's so small that it will likely end up inside... you.
Just over a month after announcing the Tegra 4 processor, Nvidia's back with another mobile chipset, the Tegra T4i, which comes with an integrated LTE modem. It's designed specifically for use with smartphones. Where the Tegra 4 is all about raw power for big phones and tablets, the Tegra 4i is a marvel of tiny…
This is truly extraordinary: Jan Scheuermann, a 52-year-old quadriplegic woman, has gained full control of a robotic arm. Not just simple commands, but truly complete control with "skill and speed almost similar to that of an able-bodied person."
If you remember our Bots of War series from last year, than you are familiar with iRobot's hardcore military robot fleet. But just because they're awesome doesn't mean they're done evolving. The comping generations may have lightweight, inflatable arms.
