Intel issued official financial warning !

Scary financial Halloween.
As the BAD FINANCE, err HARDWARE first pointed recently.

Without ozone holes world would be even hotter !

It was the models which included human factors that most closely matched the temperature profiles recorded at the poles. "For me, it can't be more clear that human activity is responsible," says Karpechko.

Ironically, the models found that warming would have been even more marked if the ozone layer which cuts out harmful solar radiation had not been depleted by the chlorofluorocarbon chemicals once used in aerosols.

BAD OZONE comment: How nice our own shits cancel each other.

Recession after Bush bubble burst began: Worse than in 2001

Happy the longest Halloween ever.
The 0.3% decline in real gross domestic product was the largest since the end of the last recession in late 2001. Double bubble?
Look at this sharp consumer confidence drop.

AMD Shanghai on November 13th

The top range Opteron 8384 should end up clocked at 2.7GHz with a 75W TDP and it should sell for $2,509 or $2,240, depending on who you ask.

November 13th.

The next time bomb: Debt insurance #!###!!

Economic growth will help prevent another financial time bomb--credit default swaps, a form of debt insurance--from exploding. The nominal amount peaked at $62 trillion and is now down to $55 trillion. Renewed prosperity will enable big companies to service their debts, thus nullifying the need to ever collect on the insurance. Most of these swaps will expire within five years.

Ironically: Phoenix is dying, will it ressurect from its ashes?

NASA'S Phoenix Mars Lander entered safe mode late yesterday in response to a low-power fault brought on by deteriorating weather conditions. While engineers anticipated that a fault could occur due to the diminishing power supply, the lander also unexpectedly switched to the "B" side of its redundant electronics and shut down one of its two batteries.

Bush foolish style GOP faces historical landslide electorial defeat !

Aides to George W.Bush, former Reagan White House staff and friends of John McCain have all told The Sunday Telegraph that they not only expect to lose on November 4, but also believe that Mr Obama is poised to win a crushing mandate.

They believe he will be powerful enough to remake the American political landscape with even more ease than Ronald Reagan did in 1980.

Grand Old Failure Party: Bush's Moon mission catastrophically drifts off ?

"I get the impression that things are quickly going from bad to worse to unrecoverable."

Just as all the other things in the USA during GOP administration.
Perhaps GOF (Grand Old Failure) is much more appropriate name for Bush's party?

Ooops: Greenspan Concedes Error on Regulation

Ignorance is Bliss : So why aren't more people happy?
Mr. Greenspan admitted that he had put too much faith in the self-correcting power of free markets and had failed to anticipate the self-destructive power of wanton mortgage lending.

Finally, a truth on small hardware

NOW Chips, Flat panel displays and solar cells drive global warming

And we globally fight against thousand time less lethal enemy CO2.
Nitrogen trifluoride
is one of several gases used during the manufacture of liquid crystal flat-panel displays, thin-film photovoltaic cells and microcircuits

Using new analytical techniques, a team led by Scripps geochemistry professor Ray Weiss made the first atmospheric measurements of nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), which is thousands of times more effective at warming the atmosphere than an equal mass of carbon dioxide.

The amount of the gas in the atmosphere, which could not be detected using previous techniques, had been estimated at less than 1,200 metric tons in 2006. The new research shows the actual amount was 4,200 metric tons. In 2008, about 5,400 metric tons of the gas was in the atmosphere, a quantity that is increasing at about 11 percent per year.

"This result reinforces the critical importance of basic research in determining the overall impact of the information technology industry on global climate change, which has already been estimated to be equal to that of the aviation industry," added Larry Smarr, director of the California Institute for Telecommunications at UCSD, who was not involved in the Scripps study.

Obama's lead on McCain grows to 12 points

"Obama's expansion is really across the board," pollster John Zogby said. "It seems to be among almost every demographic group."

Now what is left? To stay at home. Don't even think about it. Now is needed more than ever for all to vote for Obama to give him solid electoral base and public confidence, not to be dethroned soon by war dogs.

Change: No more protection for white paedophiles

Do we can accept it in a broader political sense?

Maglev train instead of airplane

The progress is as a result of the government approving three possible routes between Tokyo and Nagoya for Japan Railway’s experimental maglev trains that can hit speeds of around 500kph
They won’t be ready to put a maglev train into service at those speeds until 2025 at the earliest.
That year you will ride 263 km between Tokyo and Nagoya in a half hour or so by maglev train.

Intel's Larabee is actually vector based supercomputer

1860+ contact pods?

Intel is seems again interested in supercomputing, though this time in a small scale, highly integrated chip version named Larabee. This seems appropriate for vector specific applications.
512bit wide. A lot of data chunks crunched in a single clock.
read instruction and decode it
fetch these 16 numbers (32 bit)
fetch those 16 numbers
fetch another 16 numbers
add and multiply them

Intel issues financial warning #!

Intel Corp. said Tuesday its third-quarter profit rose 12 percent from a year ago but the world's biggest computer chip maker warned of an uncertain outlook because of a global financial crisis.
"As we look to the fourth quarter, it is hard to know what impact the financial crisis will have on end customer demand," he said.

How bad can it get?

""People expect the worst,"" said Doug Freedman of American Technology Research in San Francisco, speaking of Intel earnings, which are due on Tuesday and come against a backdrop of dismal economic news that has sent stocks down

Regarding stocks, Intel have lost a half of shares value, since this year beginning.

Seems like it faces perfect desert storm.

Add to that certain legal blow up from EU. Because time is out.

Intel has asked the European Union's second highest court for more time to respond to EU charges that it paid a retailer to favour PCs using its computer chips. The "statement of objections" the Commission filed in July was on top of charges in 2007 that Intel gave computer makers rebates to limit their use of AMD chips or avoid them altogether.

McCain loses steadily in key countries, month by month !

McCain (R) 45% -1%

Obama (D) 49% +5%


McCain (R) 44% +2%

Obama (D) 48% +2%


McCain (R) 45% +1%

Obama (D) 47% +1%


McCain (R) 42% +3%

Obama (D) 49% -1%

October is even worse and November will be a real catastrophe. However, those are only statistical lies, because in WI for example, President Bush is supported by 18% women and 24% men.
Today only 21% would vote Bush. All times low. Worse even than dictators in some countries. Both candidates knows what is needed. Change.
Because, eighty-four percent of those polled predict the economy is going to get worse

Flash: Canon announces 10 new top models

Speechless. What a eye popping bodies, what appealing photo add inns. Canon definitely has again something attractive to show on to the market. Thanks to vr-zone.

Time frame for 450mm wafers !

2009: Constructive dialogue between tool and chip makers.

2010: Silicon wafer prototypes to determine how technology behaves.

2012-2013: Equipment prototypes.

2014-2016: Equipment ready for pilot lines.

2017-2019: Production would start at 8- or 5-nm node.

BAD WAFER WEEK: 5 nm? Guys, don't bullshit. At that size transistors will deliver only noise and nothing more. What supply voltage it will use? 0.25V ? What current? Up to 500A? How many pins will be used for power supply? Say 1000. Where are we going? To nowhere,obviously.
We need something quite different. Desperately. NOW.

Nehalem cooler announced !

Specs are here.

Cray's Kraken AMD based supercomputer cracks Petaflop limit

Kraken is a Cray XT5 system?. In its current configuration, Kraken has 48 cabinets, contating a total of 4512 compute nodes and 48 service nodes. Each compute node has 4 cores, for a total of 18048 compute cores.

Kraken runs Compute Node Linux (CNL) on each compute node. CNL is designed to minimize system overhead, thus allowing scalable low-latency global communication. Each of the compute nodes contain 2.3 GHz quad-core AMD Opteron processors and 4 GB of memory. The service nodes consist of a 2.3 GHz dual-core AMD Opteron processor with 8 GB of memory. Each node is connected to a Cray SeaStar router through HyperTransport, and the SeaStars are all interconnected in a 3-D-torus topology. The resulting interconnect has very high bandwidth, low latency, and extreme scalability.

EDIT: Cray XT5 is actually Jaguar system with 8 socket blades using quad core Opterons. I firmly believe that Jaguar uses AMD's new, not yet announced 45nm Deneb processors with 6MB L3 inside. That will surely push Kraken's 250 Tflops beyond Petaflops limit.

Intel faces perfect desert storm !

We defintely find that Intel was strong only because AMD was weak. In a game called fair "competition".

Today, Intel's shares are worse than ever during the last 6 years , during this year alone you lost half on your Intel shares value! And Intel is proud on its own manufacturing technology. But who will now invest in it?
Quite recently, Fall Street suggested buy.

Over half the total UK armed forces has gone missing #!#

A computer hard drive with personal details of some 100,000 serving military personnel, over half the total armed forces, has gone missing, the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) said Friday.

Now, who is the moron of the highest category? Also on the portable hard drive was data on 600,000 potential applicants to the armed forces and the names of their referees, in the latest in a string of embarrassing data losses by the government in the past year.

BADHARDWARE verdict: Well, who cares, UK military , contrary to NASA has solid backups !
