Sealed with Dogecoin Moore's law is cracked: Intel's next chips transition come in 2.5 years. 10nm Cannon Lake is scheduled for late 2017

THE THEORY OF MOORE'S LAW might be showing cracks after Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced that the firm's shift from one transistor size to another is stretching from two to 2.5 years.

Moore's Law is the prediction made by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore that computing power would double every two years.

The law turned 50 earlier this year, and Intel said that the best is yet to come, and that the law will become more relevant in the next two decades as everyday objects become smaller, smarter and connected.

Intel has adhered to this in the past, using a 'tick-tock' strategy when launching new processors. The 'tick' refers to a shrinking of the manufacturing process, while the 'tock' is an improvement of the design and architecture at the same size.

However, Krzanich questioned this during Intel's earnings call on Wednesday, saying that manufacturing processes haven't advanced at the same rate as in the past.

"The [tick-tock] strategy created better products for our customers and a competitive advantage for Intel," said Krazanich.

"It also disproved the death of Moore's Law predictions many times over. The last two technology transitions have signalled that our cadence today is closer to 2.5 years than two."

He added that to address this, Intel plans to introduce a third 14nm product, codenamed Kabylake, in the second half of 2016 built on the foundations of the Skylake micro-architecture but with performance enhancements.

The firm will then launch its first 10nm product, codenamed Cannonlake, in the second half of 2017.

"We expect that this addition to the roadmap will deliver new features and improved performance and pave the way for a smooth transition to 10nm," he added.

However, Krzanich denied that this slip means that Intel is losing grip as a leading chip manufacturer.

"We believe, even with this in 2017, our lead in Moore's Law will not change dramatically. We believe we'll continue to lead with roughly the same position that we have today," he said.

"We base that on what really counts when I talk about 2017. That's not samples, that's not small volume. That's converting over the Cannonlake and producing a large percentage of our CPUs in volume in the second half of 2017.

"So there's a bit of definition. So at the second half of 2017, we're talking about millions of units and large volumes."

Krzanich explained that there are a number of reasons why the transitions in Intel's chip technology are taking longer.

The lithography continues to get more difficult as the firm tries to scale, and the number of multi-pattern steps needed increases, but this is the longest period of time without a lithography node change.

"So we're assuming 10nm does not have EUV [extreme ultraviolet lithography] for our technology," he said. "That's combined with the other material science changes you do with the new technology."

The admission of a change in cadence was the most interesting news to come out of the earnings call, but wasn't the only thing Intel had to talk about.

The company posted Q2 earnings of 55c per share on revenue of $13.2bn, operating income of $2.9bn and net income of $2.7bn.

This represented a 3.2 percent drop in Q2 profit on revenues that fell 4.6 percent, but was better than analysts had expected. Wall Street had predicted 50c a share on $13.04bn.

Intel blamed weaker than expected growth in the PC market for the decline, but still reported strong data centre and Internet of Things business, which helped offset weak demand for PCs that use Intel chips.

The firm reported data centre group revenue of $3.9bn, five percent higher sequentially and up 10 percent from the same period a year ago.

"Q2 results demonstrate the transformation of our business as growth in data centre, memory and IoT accounted for more than 70 percent of our operating profit and helped offset a challenging PC market," said Krzanich.

"We continue to be confident in our growth strategy and are focused on innovation and execution.

"We expect that the launches of Skylake, Microsoft's Windows 10 and new OEM systems will bring excitement to client computing in the second half of 2015."

The birth of AUDI future kind - A9Sealed with Dogecoin The birth of AUDI's future kind - A9

Hand-built over seven weeks this fall, the glimmering full-size coupe is a rolling exhibition of Audi's future. The design elements from the car's interior and exterior will be incorporated into the next generation of Audi's large cars, starting with the new Audi A8 sedan due for sale in 2017.

The midsize A6 and A7 will follow shortly after that. Audi is also expected to build a coupe very similar to this Prologue. Based on the A8, the car probably will be the first car to bear the A9 name in Audi's history, and will take Mercedes-Benz's S-Class Coupe head-on.

This is the first time the Audi prototype cruised down any city street. It's the first time Audi's new design chief, Marc Lichte, has seen the car on a real road. He's in one of the two SUVs ahead of us in the motorcade, in front of another police unit.

In the midst of scrambling to reinvent the face of Audi, Lichte was also tasked with creating the Prologue concept. While the company hasn't officially confirmed it will build an A9 that the Prologue foreshadows, any mention of it around Audi execs is met with a wink and a nod. Bet on this car reaching production.

This concept car, according to the company, incorporates 80% to 90% of the production cars' design cues, inside and out.

Key among the exterior cues is a massive flat grille that spans nearly the entire width of the car's nose. It's highlighted by six horizontal chrome bars and Audi's four-rings logo prominently displayed in the middle. Thin trapezoidal headlights squint out from either side of it.

The coupe's roofline descends slowly toward the rear of the car, leaving almost no flat trunk lid. This makes Prologue's silhouette imposing and dramatic, and looking a smidge heavy.

At the back, LED taillights are horizontally oriented, including a thin strip of lights running the entire width of the back end. The taillights also have a sculpted three-dimensionality to them that's hard to show in pictures.

The car's fenders swell outward to cover each of the wheels, a deliberate move by Lichte to highlight Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system in the same way a rear-wheel-drive Mercedes or BMW is often denoted by a long hood.

The overall look of the Prologue is less revolutionary and more of a healthy evolution. True to its production intent, the coupe looks at home on L.A.'s streets rather than looking like a Jetsons science experiment.

The Jetsons stuff is inside the car.

Using the same horizontally oriented theme as on the exterior, several touch-sensitive screens stretch across the dashboard for both the driver and passenger.

Audi also worked with Samsung to develop a cutting-edge OLED flexible glass screen that curves out of the center console just ahead of the shifter. Flexible display screens like this are at the infancy of their development, though manufacturers like LG and Samsung hope to have production screens on the market around the same time as Audi's next A8 in 2017. They'll be expensive.

The driver's instrument panel on the Prologue is a 3-D digital screen, an elaborate evolution of the wide-screen display Audi recently introduced on its 2016 TT compact sports car. And although Audi is aware that these prototype elements inside the Prologue may seem farfetched, the company says it's determined to be out front on in-car electronics.

The rarity of such flexible glass screens is one of the reasons the Prologue cost Audi millions to build. (The automaker wouldn't reveal the specific figure.) Yet the production car would cost a fraction of that, with the A9 coupe ringing in around the $100,000 to $120,000 mark once Audi confirms it and sells it.

The concept is also pricey thanks to the carbon fiber body panels, the aluminum trim inside and out, and the wood and leather throughout the interior. It's like a couture dress: a one-off piece made, finished and assembled by hand without the economies of scale to drive the price down.

It took a team of 20 people seven weeks working around the clock to build, Audi said. The chassis underneath is a shortened version of what's on the next-generation A8. To power the thing, Audi grabbed a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 out of its RS7 and kicked power up a notch. It now cranks out 605 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque.

Before we're allowed to drive it, Audi's minders have us don a disposable plastic painter's suit and booties, so as to keep the creamy white leather in perfect condition. True to its concept form, there are no door handles on this coupe; wave your hand over the door sill and it pops open automatically.

A push of the aluminum starter button by the shifter fires up the massive engine in front of us. We tap the shift lever — also touch-sensitive — to put the car in gear. Our minder gives a wave to the cops, who pull out of the parking lot with a blip of their lights and siren, and our mini future-parade is on its way.

The drive is more a low-speed demonstration than an outright test. No one wants a crashed prototype worth millions on his resume. And the massive amount of heat generated by the bleeding-edge electronics causes the engine's computers to retard full acceleration anyway.

But despite its kit-car status, the Prologue concept drives like the sultry coupe that it hopes to be. The suspension is cushy, the steering is direct, and the power — when it's available — is immense. The car's mass and proportions are perfect for the boulevard cruising that our 30-minute drive takes us on, weaving through and around Beverly Hills.

As our escorts slow to a crawl waiting for an intersection to clear up, two men who look like potential A9 owners notice the car and walk up to it, clearly trying to figure out what they're seeing. One whips out his iPhone to snap a picture of the interior.

"What kind of Audi is this?" his friend asks. Our chaperone smiles as the motorcade starts moving again, and says cryptically out the window, "The future kind."

Movie Prediction: The Alien will spawn the new eggs in the Cinemas on June 2017Sealed with Dogecoin Movie Prediction: The "Alien" will spawn the new eggs in the Cinemas on June 2017

20th Century Fox has closed a deal with director Neill Blomkamp to develop a new “Alien” movie, sources confirm.

The untitled sci-fi project is separate from “Prometheus 2,” which Fox is still making with Ridley Scott.

Blomkamp, who directed “District 9” and the upcoming Sony feature “Chappie,” had been teasing the project in recent months but said the extra-terrestrial reboot was likely abandoned. It was supposed to star “Alien” veteran Sigourney Weaver.

But on Wednesday Blomkamp confirmed the tentpole was back on track at Fox.

“So I think this is officially my next film,” he confirmed on Instagram.

It’s unclear whether Weaver is still attached to the movie [MY PREDICTION: Sigourney Weaver will be in a supporting role].

According to insiders, the new “Alien” takes place years after the “Prometheus” sequel. Scott is producing both films through his production company Scott Free. [MY PREDICTION: They Will Show Xenomorph X120 before they mutate to species (121) with retractable inner mouth]

“Prometheus,” also distributed by Fox, was “loosely based” on the “Alien” franchise and earned over $400 million worldwide. But the 3D movie opened to mixed reviews, and Fox hopes Blomkamp, who last directed “Elysium,” can take the franchise to the next level.

The Ocumetics Bionic Lens Revolutionize the way we see the WorldSealed with Dogecoin The Ocumetics Bionic Lens Revolutionize the way we see the World

A new bionic eye lens currently in development would give humans 3x 20/20 vision, at any age.

The lens, named the Ocumetics Bionic Lens, was developed by Dr. Garth Webb, an optometrist in British Columbia who was looking for a way to optimize eyesight regardless of a person’s health or age.

With this remarkable lens, patients would have perfect vision, ending the need for driving glasses, progressive lenses, and contacts, all of which are set to become a dim memory as the eye-care industry is transformed, CBC reports.

Even better is the fact that people who get the lens surgically inserted will never get cataracts, because the lens replaces that of their natural eye, which inevitably decays over time.

Webb says that anyone over the age of 25 is the best candidate, because that is when the eye is fully developed.

“This is vision enhancement that the world has never seen before,” he says, “If you can just barely see the clock at 10 feet, when you get the Bionic Lens you can see the clock at 30 feet away.“

The lens, which would be custom-made, is folded like a taco in a saline-filled syringe and placed in the eye, where it unravels itself within 10 seconds.

Quick & Painless Surgery

Webb says that the surgery can be done within 8 minutes and immediately corrects a patient’s vision.

The project has been in the works for the last eight years, Webb told CBC, costing about $3 million in research and development fees, along with the acquisition of international patents and the securing of a biomedical manufacturing facility in Delta, B.C.

His mission is fueled by the “obsession” he’s had to free himself and others from corrective lenses since he was in Grade 2, when he was saddled with glasses.

“My heroes were cowboys, and cowboys just did not wear glasses,” Webb says.

Webb’s efforts were recently recognized after he presented the lens to 14 top ophthalmologists in San Diego during a gathering of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.

Surgeons from all around the world were intrigued by his “clever” design, Webb says.

“I think this device is going to bring us closer to the holy grail of excellent vision at all ranges — distant, intermediate and near,” said Dr. Vincent DeLuise, an ophthalmologist who teaches at both Yale University and Weill Cornell Medical College in New York.

Trials & Tribulations

Pending clinical trials on animals and then blind human eyes, the Bionic Lens could be available in Canada and elsewhere in about two years, depending on regulatory processes in various countries, Webb says.

Webb is hopeful that his lens will do away with the need for laser eye surgery, a procedure that still isn’t as efficient as it could be.

“Perfect eyesight should be a human right,” he says.

Mobile phone charges are finally abolished by European UnionSealed with Dogecoin Mobile phone charges are finally abolished by European Union

Members of the European parliament have voted through new rules that will scrap mobile roaming charges and stop holidaymakers returning home to the nightmare of a massive phone bill racked up on their travels.

The vote sees the deal reached between European authorities in June to scrap increased costs for calls, text and data while roaming with the EU, passed into law.

UK mobile phone users who travel within Europe will only have to pay the same prices as they would at home, curbing the cost of continued mobile connectivity while abroad.

Former vice-president of the European Commission and rapporteur for the Trade in Services Agreement, Viviane Reding said: “After 10 years of tireless fight, roaming is over. A victory for consumers and a stepping stone towards a truly European digital single market.”

Liberal Democrat MEP Catherine Bearder said: “The end of rip-off roaming fees is a massive win for British consumers. Driving down costs and making it easier to travel is what being in the EU is all about.

“This shows what we can achieve when Britain plays a leading role in Europe.”

The news was welcomed by campaigners, though some were cautious over some clauses that might limit the agreement’s utility for all.

Monique Goyens, director general of the European Consumer Organisation said: “Another cost cut for mobile use abroad by April 2016 is good news, but is still only a half-baked solution.

“Allowing companies to limit roaming rights for frequent travellers, for example, is certainly not the promised end of roaming in Europe. A real zero-roaming Europe hinges on a major telecom market reform, which is a mammoth task to achieve in just 13 months.”
More than two years in the making

The vote followed more than two years of negotiations and U-turns as the European parliament butted heads with EU member states concerned about the financial impact on their national telecoms groups.

The anti-roaming plans had been scheduled for the end of 2015, but were blocked in March by ministers of national governments through the European council.

The roaming plans were twinned with a vote over amendment to telecoms regulation that would have reinforced European net neutrality, the principle that internet service providers should not give preferential treatment to certain websites and services. The amendments were rejected, leading to criticism by net neutrality campaigners.

The commission is saying the new amendments to the telecoms market will be an end to “huge telephone bills ruining your holiday budget”.

This year, phone operators can still charge travellers to European member states up to 19 cents (14p) a minute for outgoing calls, five cents for incoming calls, six cents per text message, and 20 cents per megabyte of data downloaded, on top of their normal tariff.

In April next year those costs will be reduced to five cents per minute, two cents per SMS and five cents per MB. Roaming charges will not be completely removed until June 2017 and will require reform of the roaming wholesale market on which national phone operators across Europe trade services between each other.

It is this trade that allows UK mobile phone users to make calls, send texts and access data using European networks while in countries such as Germany, Spain or France.

Some operators ahead of the pack

Some UK mobile operators have come out ahead of the roaming changes, others have stuck steadfastly to increased charges that can see bills of hundreds of pounds for holidaymaker usage that would not seem out of the ordinary in the UK.

Some operators, including Vodafone UK, added daily charges to user bills for use of their allowance in European countries. Others, including Hong Kong conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa’s Three UK mobile, removed roaming charges for those travelling to a selection of European countries, mirroring the end goal for the newly passed legislation.

Kester Mann, mobile operators analyst with CCS Insight, said: “A number of providers have opted to offer inclusive roaming in many tariffs. This is a smart and differentiating move given that has resonated well with customers – Three’s Feel at Home service has saved customers £1.3bn in roaming charges and has been used by over 2 million customers.”

Ernest Doku from Uswitch said: “Bill shock from holidaying in the EU affects more than 9 million UK mobile users a year according to our research.”

One-fifth of UK mobile users travelling to the EU in the last year have faced higher than usual bills for usage, collectively amounting to £573m, according to data from Uswitch. The average charge added to bills was £61 on top of a user’s standard contract charge, while 17% faced bills of £100 or more.

Not universal approval

The abolishment of roaming charges was not met with universal approval. In the days before the vote Roger Helmer MEP tabled an amendment to reject the agreement on behalf of Ukip.

Helmer said: “Lower prices for jet-setters will mean higher domestic prices. The EU plan is good for MEPs, bad for voters.”

The next step for regulators is a reform of the roaming wholesale market, which has potential to further delay the process of roaming charge removal beyond June 2017, should talks drag.

Once agreements are in place, it could take the European mobile phone operator market one step closer to being free of its current geographic restrictions.

Mark Windle, head of marketing for telecoms software provider OpenCloud said: “Most mobile network operators are limited to a market defined by their own radio-access network – services are defined by, and delivered from, individual service-siloes in each country – but service provision is capable of being pan-European, if not global.

“The change in roaming charges may flatten the EU for travellers, the creation of a single communications market is not yet in place. But it is coming.”

The truth about the real scale of French Army Mutinies of World War I and the following mass military trialsSealed with Dogecoin The truth about the real scale of French Army Mutinies of World War I and the following mass military trials

On 27 May 1917 around 30,000 French infantry soldiers upped and left their front line trenches on the Western Front. They were mostly battle-hardened veterans who had had enough of their high command’s orders for increasingly futile attacks. They didn’t harm their officers, they just refused to return to the trenches.

The French military authorities, alarmed by news of the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, responded swiftly and decisively: mass arrests followed by mass trials. There were around 3,500 courts-martial; around 23,000 men were convicted of some form of mutiny, of whom around 550 were sentenced to death. It is thought that only around 30-50 men were actually shot, while the rest were jailed. The numbers are sketchy because of the 100 year secrecy order placed on the details by a French government nervous of shattering morale across the country. In fact, the scale of the mutinies were not revealed until later in the twentieth century.

Sealed with Dogecoin Boxing prediction: What is on the Klitschko prerecorded usb stick about his fight of the ages versus Joshua

MY WILD PREDICTIONS IS: Klitschko will devastate Joshua in the 6th round and demolish him in the 7th with straight punch knockout

Wladimir Klitschko has recorded his prediction of Saturday's fight against Anthony Joshua on a USB stick which will be sewn into his robe.

Klitschko will wear the robe to the ring and then auction it off after the fight to raise money for his charity foundation.

Only then will the successful bidder be able to watch the video to see if the veteran fighter's prediction for his Wembley contest with Joshua - live on Sky Sports Box Office - was accurate.

Klitschko made the confident revelation during a packed media briefing at Sky Central in west London, where both men were full of mutual respect ahead of Saturday night's blockbuster contest.

"On this stick, I recorded a video last week I gave my prediction," Klitschko revealed, holding up the memory stick. "This stick is going to be integrated into my robe.

"Do not ask me, after that fight, what is on the stick. The only person who is going to be able to open it up and watch it is the person who buys this robe, with all the money going to the Klitschko Foundation."

Joshua, meanwhile, believes he can etch his name among the greats of boxing by winning Saturday's Wembley showdown.

The Brit will defend his IBF crown in the fight and compete for the IBO and WBA super titles vacated by Tyson Fury, who won them by beating Klitschko in November 2015.

That was the Ukrainian's first defeat for more than 11 years, and Joshua is well aware of the impact a victory over Klitschko will have on his own legacy in the sport.

"I always try to strip things right back to basics," he said. "It is just me and a man trading blows and the best man will win.

"I am preparing myself not only for a physical battle but a mental battle with anyone. April 29 is another stepping stone towards greatness."

Now every cyka blyat with a bike could have Livemap on his head - first Russian VR Helmet released on Mobile World CongressSealed with Dogecoin Now every cyka blyat with a bike could have Livemap on his head - first Russian VR Helmet released on Mobile World Congress

LiveMap – The Next Big Hi-Tech Helmet?

Following my recent first impressions article on the SKULLY AR-1, I was contacted by Andrew Artishchev, founder and CEO of Livemap helmets. He wanted to show me a second prototype of the Livemap helmet, and I was keen on seeing it so I agreed to meet with him. His idea is quite complex, yet bold and innovative. Livemap is a smart helmet that has a HUD that displays navigation and features voice command capabilities, as well as the ability to record and stream video.

I’m sure a lot of you have heard of LiveMap; we’ve covered it in the past here on RideApart. Perhaps to some it’s an exhausting topic and/or product. However, Artishchev is adamant to have moto journalists get their hands on it (well, the prototype at least) to show the moto community that his project/product is coming along, with hopes of seeing motorcyclists wearing the LiveMap helmet early next year.

It’s clearly an exciting time for moto gear technology, and I'm all in.

Livemap Features

Artishchev came up with the LiveMap concept in 2008. He was able to obtain obtain a quarter of a million dollar grant from the Russian Ministry of Science in 2014, and to date, he spent a total of million to develop two LiveMap prototypes.

The initial design for the helmet was based on the helmets that fighter pilot's use. It had a projector to display the HUD image onto the actual visor screen — positioned on the top of the helmet — but Artishchev felt it wouldn't pass safety testing. So the new design will have the projector (which will be much smaller than what he showed me) living near the chin, which he claims is where the helmet receives the least amount of impact during a crash.

The main purpose of the LiveMap HUD is to provide safe navigation. The HUD will display a map that's generated from Navtech, which is Artishchev's preferred source for route information. The HUD will also provide images in full color, and unlike some HUDs, the image is bright enough not to be affected by ambient light.

I tried on the prototype helmet. Immediately, it was interesting to see something projected right on the visor, but I was a bit concerned about visibility. Artishchev assured me that the image will not impede the motorcyclist's views as it only covers an approximately 20 degrees of vision. He also mentioned that the helmet will have all the proper safety ratings (i.e, DOT, ECE, etc.).

As mentioned earlier, the final version of the LiveMap helmet will have a camera built-in to specifically record and stream live video onto sites such as YouTube, Periscope, etc. To me, this is actually a very desirable feature. I currently see plenty of motorists riding with GoPros strapped to their helmet, and integration of that sort of video technology could be a vast improvement.

So what will power all of the features this helmet claims to deliver? Artishchev plans to equip the helmet with a 64bit arm processor chip with LTE advanced processing (similar to a cellphone like the Galaxy S6). It's also standalone, so the LiveMap helmet wouldn't need to be paired with a cell phone.

When it comes to battery life, it will hold power for roughly four to six hours. As for the final look, Artishchev said LiveMap will be a modular helmet made of carbon fiber materials to ensure a lightweight wear.
What's Next for LiveMap?

I asked Artishchev when we will actually see a finished product and he said he plans to have the third a final prototype completed by the end of this summer. From there he will complete the industrial design and have the first production of the LiveMap helmet by the middle of December. The goal is to have helmets on customers' heads by spring 2017.

As for actually manufacturing the LiveMap helmet, Artishchev isn't going to do it himself. He has been in talks with helmet manufacturers (he didn't tell me whom specifically) to help him produce the LiveMap. This will hopefully help expedite production.

As for price, it comes in at $2,000, which can be a hefty price tag. But if he delivers 100 percent of what he said the helmet will do, then I feel like this isn't unreasonable — at least at first.

I think LiveMap is a really cool concept. As you can see in the pictures, the second prototype left a lot to be desired aesthetically, but the final LiveMap helmet will most likely look more refined. As I mentioned earlier, I think the addition of a built-in camera that can live stream video will be incredibly useful. It's something that Russia currently adopts in their cars now, so extending it to motorcyclists is great. To have crystal clear navigation and voice commands right there with you would really make LiveMap a top contender in the smart helmet category. Only time will tell...
