Windows 10 is buzz-worthy, Adobe said Wednesday as it cited data from its social media metrics platform that showed positive vibes about the new OS.
Measuring 3-plus million mentions harvested from blogs, Instagram, Reddit, Twitter and elsewhere over the last 30 days, Adobe's Social analytics pegged the most upbeat slice at 40%, only slightly less than the 46% measured for Apple's OS X El Capitan, the Mac upgrade expected to debut in the next three months.
Adobe drops social media impressions into a number of buckets, including ones labeled "admiration," "joy," "sadness," "surprise" and "anticipation."
Windows 10 garnered 40% in admiration and joy, 20% in surprise, and 6% in anticipation.
[Bump for Intel and Micron. Yet more evidence that we are going to have a strong second half. ]
After a harsh winter, the U.S. economy posted a solid rebound in the April-June quarter, led by a surge in consumer spending and a recovery in foreign trade.
The Commerce Department said Thursday that the gross domestic product, the economy's total output of goods and services, expanded at a 2.3 percent annual rate in the second quarter. Moreover, the economy didn't actually contract in the first quarter. The government now says GDP grew 0.6 percent in the first three months of the year instead of shrinking at a 0.2 percent pace.
The healthy spring rebound reflected a big jump in consumer spending and a swing in trade from a significant drag to a small positive for growth.
Economists are looking for growth to strengthen more in the second half of this year to around 3 percent as consumer spending is bolstered by sizable employment gains.
32-bit or 64-bit
The day has come, Windows 10 has officially launched.
In case you have more than one PC, and in case you don’t want to wait for the automatic upgrade, you can get the Windows 10 ISO file and do either an upgrade or a clean installation on your PC.
The provided links will offer allow you to download something called MediaCreationTool, and then the tool offers you either to upgrade your windows or create a ISO file. You can select your language, architecture, whether you use 32-bit or 64-bit hardware, and choose the Windows edition you need. Make sure to check the system requirements for Windows 10 ISO before you start the instalation.
Microsoft offers ISO / updates for Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Home N, Windows 10 Home single language, Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Pro N. You cannot get an ISO that will fit them all. The N stands for not with Media Player, created for the EU and Swiss market.
If you want to burn it to USB file, you need at least 6 GB drive or bigger to do so. The tool will automatically download the ISO that you can burn or download, and extract the ISO for a bootable USB installation drive.
Intel, in a bid to promote desktop CPU platforms, has divided the whole market into six segments in terms of market positioning and price: Enthusiast Tower catering to demand for gaming, video/audio content and high performance, Mainstream appealing by high performance-price ratios, all-in-one (AIO) PCs, Mini PCs (NUC), Portable AIO PCs and Compute Sticks. Mini PCs will support both Windows and Chrome OS, and the other five only Windows 8.1/10, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers.
In early August, Intel will announce several K-series processors including Core i7-6700K, and Z170 chipsets and will unveil Skylake-S and Skylake-U series processors and H170/B150 chipsets in early September.
Intel will start mass shipping Skylake processors in October and November, while its top-end six-core and eight-core Broadwell-E processors will become available in the first quarter of 2016 using LGA 2011-3 and supporting the X99 chipsets and DDR4 memory.
Currently, Intel is seeing the Enthusiast Tower segment enjoy growing sales, while demand for NUC products and Compute Sticks is also gradually picking up.
Yet another article Yahoo won't let me post up. Check it out.
The article explains why an Intel acquisition of Micron is a perfect match:
"The two companies have been collaborating on a number of innovative technologies over the last decade or so and the new memory technology, the first to be launched in more than 25 years, only serve to exemplify the complementary nature of both companies."
We often focus so much on processor performance that we forget that systems often bottleneck in other areas, and memory performance is more important because that is where the bottlenecks often reside. Upping that performance 1,000 times promises a massive change in anything currently limited by the performance of Flash memory. This technology is going to do great things for firms closely aligned with Intel and Micron and really ugly things for companies that are trying to bring to market a competing technology.
As with most technology changes of this magnitude, we can’t estimate how big the overall impact will be or all of the things this will enable, but the word “massive” is likely inadequate when it comes to just how big an impact it will have. This is a once-in-a-decade kind of event, and given the rate of change we are seeing, likely not the only one. It is pretty clear that the end of this decade isn’t going to look anything like the beginning.
Intel and Micron just announced 3D XPoint, a new memory technology that blends the speed of DRAM with the storage capabilities of Flash. Given that the technology won’t be shipping for a bit, you’ll have time to cycle out your current tech devices. But much like how Flash memory made nearly everything that used a hard drive obsolete; this effectively makes many things that use DRAM or Flash obsolete.
And much like flash did, this technology will move where performance in storage has high value and can support a higher cost. Think real-time analytics, financial services, defense (weapons and analytics), real-time translation, and AI.
In a way, this should follow a path similar to Flash as it moves through the market, and it may render HP’s somewhat similar Memristor technology obsolete before it even ships.
A prominent tech-focused financial services firm has offered a rosier Intel Corp. take after meeting with the semiconductor giant's management team.
Pacific Crest Securities said it has boosted its target stock price for Intel to $35, up from the $28.96 it started at on Wednesday. It's also projecting a $142 billion market cap for the company.
Portland-based Pacific Crest called the outlook an "incrementally move positive" adjustment.
Pacific Crest's takeaways:
Intel's data center group's "prospects remain intact..."
"Intel is selling up the stack to hyperscale customers driving higher Xeon" processor average selling prices.
"Residual benefits from Windows Server 2003 EOL are still in play."
The firm said Intel leaders laid out a solid three-fold rationale for Intel's June Altera acquisition.
Specifically, Pacific Crest leaders acknowledged that the advanced manufacturing technology driving Altera meshes well with Intel's "process technology leadership." The group believes Altera, as Intel hopes, will indeed help develop products in the emerging Internet of Things realm and bolster Intel's data center business as well.
[Of course, they didn't even mention the big memory announcement which is totally baffling. Does anyone on Wall Street even know about the announcement??? Apparently not. ]
1.) Intel/Micron's big memory announcement. Hothardware:
"This is something many people thought was impossible"
"To say this is a game-changer would be the understatement of the year. "
" Frankly, what they've accomplished is astounding."
2.) Windows 10 roll-out has begun.
3.) Big microcontroller announcement:
Insider Monkey: "Intel’s soon to be announced microcontroller could enable the company to dominate a microcontroller/processor market for sensor networks for smart technology estimated at $10 billion in 2020."
4.) Skylake release a week from today
5.) IDF in August
Our contention from the beginning, when rumors first appeared back in March about a possible acquisition of Altera, was that Intel saw some big sea change coming to the datacenter, one so large that it was willing to spend an enormous sum of money – by Intel’s historical standards and compared to its capital expense budget to keep Moore’s Law moving ahead in its fabs.
To our thinking, when the deal was announced in early June, Intel was hedging its bets on the future of compute and possibly saw a flowering of accelerated computing based on FPGAs, much as Nvidia has cultivated with nearly a decade of hard work for GPU acceleration. Many people thought that FPGAs would be either compute engines or accelerators in the datacenter a decade ago, and while they have their niches, they are far from commonplace compute elements. They are still mostly used for specific function acceleration or to implement circuits where the volumes are insufficient to justify the cost of designing and etching a full-on, static ASIC.
Intel sees a much larger opportunity than this, and CEO Brian Krzanich said when the deal was announced that up to a third of cloud service providers could be using hybrid CPU-FPGA server nodes for their workloads by 2020. This is an astounding statement, given that Altera itself pegged the FPGA opportunity in the datacenter at something around $1 billion in its own forecasts from late 2014. That’s about three times the current revenue run rate for Nvidia’s Tesla compute engines. Intel showed a prototype Xeon-FPGA chip that put the two devices on the same package back in early 2014, and the plan was to get it out the door by the end of 2016 with a ramp through 2017; the idea was to get a Xeon with FPGA circuits on the die “shortly after that,” as Data Center Group general manager Diane Bryant put it at the time.
"that means tomorrow will probably be a down day. Needs to get back under 12 until they can prove there is growth in the future."
[Hahahahahahaha. Lucy apparently slept through the last two days. ]
Birds of a feather. I'm sure the Russian bid was all above board and Sepp didn't get a dime.
Board stalker/pinhead still posting under a variety of IDs and lied yet again about leaving.
Lucy posting as kopach, signifying embarrassment.
Wall Street even more clueless than ever.
Once again says he's leaving only to show up again the next day. Already posted under two of his IDs today:
