Yesterday Acer unveiled a broad array of new merchandise at a press conference in New York. Between these have been two new tablets – Acer Iconia One particular 8 (B1-820) and the Iconia Tab 10 (A3-A30). The company also teased a third slate – the gaming-centr Acer Predator Tablet.
At the Hong Kong trade fair, a mysterious new smartphone was spotted at Elephone's booth. The handset in question will apparently come with eye-popping 2K display, 4GB of RAM, a 20.7MP camera for photos and videos and Intel SoC (system-on-a-chip), making it the company's first smartphone to move away from MediaTek's processors. Furthermore, it will come with Android, as well as Windows 10 as its operating system out of the box. There's no word if it will be a dual-OS device, or two devices running different operating systems.
Six generations. ARM eat your heart out.
By now you’ve probably heard that Comcast has abandoned its push to acquire Time Warner Cable, due to looming concerns that both the Department of Justice’s antitrust division and the Federal Communications Commission were poised to recommend it blocked.
Netflix was vehemently against the merger from the beginning, as the streaming company was forced to pay Comcast a fee for access.
Netflix said that the merger would’ve “set up and ecosystem that calls into questions what we to date have taken for granted: that a consumer who pays for connectivity to the internet will be able to get the content she requests.”
It appears the feds agreed.
[Woo Hoo!!! Just say no to the corporate take-over of media.]
1.) Intel quantum well technology.
Intel could gain a capability as early as 2016 to produce 10nm transistors as much as 200 millivolts lower in power consumption than the rest of the industry. Kanter expects other chip makers will not be able to catch up with the techniques until their 7nm node, at least two years later.
2.) Intel first to EUV
Intel buys 15 next-Gen chip machines from ASML
3.) Windows 10 to be released in July.
4.) Intel Windows Smartphone.
5.) Intel Compute Stick coming with Skylake-Y - a huge market for Intel. Initial launch in April.
6.) Push into mobile. "The company expects its mobile group to break even in 2016."
7.) Intel built-to-order Xeon D chips. Another big success.
8.) Micron and Intel Unveil New 3D NAND Flash Memory.
9.) Big server, data center and IoT growth.
10.) An Intel Altera acquisition would boost foundry business.
11.) Skylake coming in October.
12.) The death of RT and the revival of the Wintel relationship.
13.) Intel's EDR InfiniBand arriving soon.
14.) The push into smartphones is beginning to accelerate.
15.) Intel is becoming the leading tablet processor provider.
16.) The elimination of contra-revenue will provide a major bump in the bottom line.
17.) Apple using Intel's LTE Modem in 2016.
"So your theory is that technology, revenues and profits are all meaningless because Wall Street manipulates the stock price to whatever they want?"
While I agree that there is significant manipulation a lot of the time I don't believe that it is the primary driver of stock prices in the market except on occasion in the short to medium term.
Yeah, I see Intel as currently being subject to attempted manipulation. I think Intel has too many strong dynamics in play for it to be successful for very long. Some big market players bet large that Intel was going to have a bad earnings announcement and they are still unhappy. Ha. Pinheads.
See "Crash Boys" article on the Bloomberg site for some amusing information on the efforts being put in on attempted manipulation.
"You simply ignore that INTC can be shorted at will without fear of losing due to the huge convertible debenture. They can milk this , churning profits until the debenture is closed."
[Then how did Intel previously move up to 37.90 if the shorts have control?]
"There are 6 other EUV units that will go to the foundries in 2015, 2 of them to TSMC (which brings TSMC's total to 4, once it's existing boxes have been upgraded). It's been suggested that Samsung is getting the other 4, but who knows, perhaps you do? Perhaps there are other orders as well, do you know?"
[Oh, so - Intel only has a 15-6 advantage. Thanks for the meaningless clarification.
Intel will be there first with far more. Get used to it.]
By the way, Monk. Intel is ordering a minimum of FIFTEEN of the EUV units and ARM is getting, what, 2?
What does that tell you?
"Marketing eh? The FACT is that TSMC will use the same machines for EUV as Intel, or are you suggesting that ASML is committing fraud in it's announcement? "
[Oh, it's that simple, right? You just buy it and and it works right out of the box? Quit playing the fool. Quit trying to pull my finger. Quit with your marketing spin. Not everyone is so stupid as to fall for empty words.]
"Meanwhile the rest of the industry – including TSMC, Samsung and GlobalFoundries – won’t make the move to the quantum well FETs until their 7 nm node, meaning Intel will once again be about two years ahead of the pack in significant microprocessor technology."

[Read it and weep, Monk. EUV is just going to make it worse for ARM's poor, struggling fabrication efforts. ]
"Yep, just like 10nm."
[All about the implementation though, isn't it? I guess in the marketing department you just have to play with it and don't really have to ever manufacture it. Let me know when ARM stops playing and moves on to the manufacturing stage. The idea that ARM will bring an EUV product to market at the same time as Intel is laughable. I'm not Twink. I'm not going to pull your finger.]
Wall Street is just continuing its stupidity while ignoring the latest information. You should be buying instead of moaning and groaning. Great things are on the way for the second half of the year. Intel doesn't pursue instant gratification and neither should you.
Wall Street told us the economy was too strong and the market had to decline. Now they tell us the economy is too weak and the market has to decline. Manipulation is the only thing you can depend on them to do. And yet you are surprised that the market isn't logical today.
"In short, the lack of a LTE modem wasn't a handicap in winning sockets for the high end."
[It was the absence of an integrated SOC at the time and not just the modem. That gap has been closed. Please stop playing the fool.]
"Because the original poster was talking about 10nm and the next iphone. The next iphone uses Intel's modem, which isn't on 10nm."
[Yeah, so you were being an earwig.]
