  • Samsung Launches Intel-powered Chromebook 2

    Samsung rolls out an Intel-based variant of the Chromebook 2, but cuts down on the memory.

    Samsung Chromebook 2

    Samsung (KRX:005935) launched the Chromebook 2 earlier this year with an Exynos 5 Octa SoC, and is now introducing a variant that comes with an Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) processor, the Celeron N2840. After long delays and non-availability in most regions, the Intel-based Chromebook 2 is set to go on sale this weekend for $250.

    Along with the addition of an Intel CPU, Samsung has undertaken enhancements to the chassis that makes the Chromebook 2 more durable. The machine is now reinforce by metal around the four corners as well as behind the display that add rigidity to the notebook. The faux-leather stitching that was inspired by the Galaxy Note 3 is still intact, however, as is the 1366 x 768 resolution display. Now that vendors like HP and Toshiba have started offering full-HD displays, the panel on the Chromebook 2 feels sub-standard.

    Samsung is also adding in a new feature called Google Help, through which users new to the Chrome OS ecosystem can find and get assistance for any issues hey face through a live video chat agent located at Samsung’s call center in the US. The service is similar to what Amazon offers in Mayday, and should alleviate most issues faced by users.

    In terms of battery life, Samsung is stating that the Chromebook 2 delivers nine hours from a full charge, which is in line with what is offered by other devices in this segment. Other hardware features of the Chromebook 2 include 16 GB internal storage, 2 GB RAM for the Intel-based variant, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI out, one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port and an SD card reader. It is unclear as to why Samsung decided to cut down on the memory from 4 GB on the Exynos-based versions to 2 GB on the Celeron N2840 model, but for $250, the machine is still a decen

  • Obama’s Newly-Appointed ‘Ebola Czar’ Happens to Be Lacking in One Important Area of Expertise

    President Obama has asked Democratic operative Ron Klain to be the “Ebola Czar” and coordinate the federal government’s response to the deadly virus, sources close to the President have told CNN.

    Having previously rejected the idea of an “Ebola Czar,” Obama relented on Thursday, CNN reports.

    “It may make sense for us to have one person … so that after this initial surge of activity, we can have a more regular process just to make sure that we’re crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s going forward,” Obama said.

    Klain served as Chief of Staff to Vice Presidents Gore and Biden, and spearheaded Gore’s recount efforts in the 2000 presidential election. Having left the Vice President’s office in 2011, he has since become the president of Case Holdings, the holding company for AOL co-founder Steve Case, NBC News reports.

    Our new Ebola Czar does not, however, have any medical experience, as CNN reports.

    That has not dissuaded Washington Democrats, who applaud Obama’s pick as an excellent choice to “control the message,” especially in advance of the midterm elections, New York Times reports.

    “He’ll control the message better than most people would, which is really important from an economic standpoint, from a health standpoint, but it’s also important from a political perspective,” one official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because no formal announcement had been made.

    Klain will be reporting to national security adviser Susan Rice and Obama’s homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco.

    Seems like many bought into the microchip slide and then bought again and felt triple squashed after earnings came out so well and the Morgan Stanley downgrade. It seems many bought into that downgrade because the company didn't refute their claim.

INTC posts Q3 operating EPS of $0.66 vs. $0.58, beating our $0.64 estimate. Sales rose 8%, better than expected, aided by higher demand within its PC and Data Center segments. Margins widened, on higher volume and lower ramp up costs related to next generation investments. We see benefits from PC stabilization/share gains and are positive on server growth. We believe mobility will benefit from recent partnerships in '15.

  • Intel Corporation (INTC) ‘s Cloud Computing Power Is Scheduled To Steal The Show Today

    By Usman Rafi in News, Tech

    Published: October 14, 2014 at 11:14 am



    Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)‘s Earnings Report for the third quarter is scheduled to be released today at 4:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time but there is a certainty that surrounds the unreleased numbers. CNBC released its own short segment on why Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) needs to be hailed in this falling stock price environment.

    IntelLogo

    Intel has held its own in storms that many other companies haven’t been able to withstand. The latest being the topsy turvy environment prevalent on the Stock Exchange these days in light of fears of a slowdown in the global economy.

    Other circumstances where Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) kept the image of the company intact is the case of declining desktop sales. The company survived the ordeal unscathed. This is because no matter how we choose to see our future as a human race, there is one critical component in it, which we cannot disregard, the processor. Following the demise of the desktops, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)’s processors found another home.

    “[...] In this cloud computing age, people forget that cloud computing all those servers requires processors and Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is powering a lot of those processors, that’s really helped their stock price, helped them diversify their portfolio [...],” reported CNBC.

    There are bright prospects for the giant chip manufacturer in the future too. Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has made substantial investments in both wearable technology and processors for mobile devices. These investments are scheduled to bear fruit soon, but even without them Intel continues to climb the ladder of success.

    Moreover, chip manufacturing is a business that has a high barrier of entry i
