Only Paranoid survive

In Only the Paranoid survive, Intel's former CEO Andy Grove recounts the dilemma of launching two largely incompatible CPUs at the same time:
We now had two very powerful chips that we were introducing at just about the same time: the 486, largely based on CISC technology and compatible with all the PC software, and the i860, based on RISC technology, which was very fast but compatible with nothing. We didn't know what to do. So we introduced both, figuring we'd let the marketplace decide. However, things were not that simple. Supporting a microprocessor architecture with all the necessary computer-related products – software, sales, and technical support – takes enormous resources. Even a company like Intel had to strain to do an adequate job with just one architecture. And now we had two different and competing efforts, each demanding more and more internal resources. Development projects have a tendency to want to grow like the proverbial mustard seed. The fight for resources and for marketing attention (for example, when meeting with the customer, which processor should we highlight) led to internal debates that were fierce enough to tear apart our microprocessor organization. Meanwhile, our equivocation caused our customers to wonder what Intel really stood for, the 486 or i860?


Apply for Cannonlake at Intel Before May 14, 2014 :

We create models at the full-chip level to project frequencies and binsplit for our team's products; we're currently working on 10nm Cannonlake.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Cannonlake at 10nm seems feasible. Until tests prove opposite.

Chipless Intel will manufacture for fabless ARM !

In a world of strange alliances, this will go down as one of the strangest. 
Quad core 64bit ARMs
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Well for some time, until Israel Atomic scientist don't reveal  in last detail rival's nuclear ARM secrets. :)
Intel: ARM is more energy efficient x86
Actually ARMs Cortex A53 is low power smartphone chip and Intel will manufacture it in 14nm process.

Jews in Elysee Palace's communications system !

 In another NSA document from 2008 obtained by the British newspaper The Guardian, Israel is described as ”excellent partners in terms of sharing information ” but the Mossad is also noted by the Americans to be “the third most aggressive intelligence service in the world against the United States”.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK:Well it wasn't to hard. Sarkozy itself is Jew by origin. What is interesting is that he was a supreme commander of French army and NUCLEAR forces

AMD'a 14nm by the end of 2014 !

As far as product launches are concerned, we can expect a launch date of the new products based upon the TSMC 20nm and GLOFO 14nm FinFET processes by late 2014 or early 2015 since they are only currently being tapped out.

After all, ARM is expected to move from 28nm to 20nm fabrication on the Cortex-A15 and 64-bit, ARMv8 Cortex-A57 designs by 2014. The micro-server and desktop-targeted A57 will support a big.LITTLE arrangement with the similarly ARMv8-based Cortex-A53 smartphone/tablet SoC. Both should advance to 14nm fabrication by 2015 or 2016.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: However AMD's 14nm XM  FinFET SOI technology doesn't seem like a Intel's 14 nm vaporware by the end of this year. If tic toc still works.
The 14XM FinFET node is a low power product aimed at mobile applications at 14 nm.  It will not be a good choice for large, power hungry products like GPUs, but it will be appropriate for low power SOCs. 
I fully expect to see ARMv8 based processors utilize this node.

At Toyota one critical bit is worth $ 1Billion !

There are 24 tasks and 16 million different ways those tasks can die. The experts group was able to demonstrate at least one way for the software to cause unintended acceleration, but there are so many other ways that could have happened.
We observed that Toyota's black box can malfunction during unintended acceleration specifically, and this will cause the black box to falsely report no braking. NHTSA's rules need to address this, e.g., by being more specific about where and how the black box gets its data, so that it does not have a common failure point with the engine computer.

Ooooops, second X386 duopoly CEO scalp down: Intel's CEO chief of Architecture group steps down

Well, actually the first scalp down, Because Microsoft CEO Balmer went down too, but without that Android mavericks trophy, from the obvious bold reason. :)

He received an award from the Israeli president in 1987 for developing the i387 math coprocessor
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Seems that I was right at least about some findings. Anyway, nice co-processing between Israel and Intel presidents :) ISRAEL INSIDE, should be  Intel's new security logo :)

R.I.P. Microsoft !

As the mobile world takes off, it’s only natural that the desktop and laptop world would move towards the free model as well 
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Now that is behind Balmer's resign !
‘The $0 Mavericks price is linked to the trend towards vertical integration. A company that makes both the hardware and the software for a device can choose where to put its profit margins’

There is no viable 14nm process at Intel

Is leaked 14nm Broadwell actually Hi K 22 nm low power second generation process ?
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Seems like 22 nm is absolute shrinking size. With 3 Fin FETs gates we entered  in contradict age of ever shrinking gates and fatter overall transistor bodies !.
The central point to the note is that Intel’s 22nm process has serious problems, and 14nm is in deep trouble too.  BHW however does not see any problem with Intel developing a 22nm SoC process, quite the contrary,

Exclusive: What is exactly behind Intel's 14nm problems ?

We all know that after scaling problems in past Intel can't be surprised after introduction of development fabs. But now it is obviously in scaling problems, just as BAD HARDWARE predicted. What is really behind Intel's widely shut lips ?

"If you can make them [FinFETs] rectangular you will gain significantly in terms of performance, about a 20 percent gain." "Despite significant differences in the shape of the three fins, the difference in the on-current is within a 4 percent range," the blog states.The characteristic dimensions of three FinFETs were fed into the GSS Garand simulator and it revealed that at 22-nm, nature appears to have worked to Intel's advantage.
Professor Asenov added: "I think Intel just survived at 22-nm. I think bulk FinFETs will be difficult to scale to 16-nm or 14-nm. I think that SOI will help the task of scaling FinFETs to 16-nm and 11-nm. Of course, the wafers are more expensive, but you save money with less processing."
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: But alas, nature is not always in Intel's favor. Say at 14nm. Mother nature next favor window is only at 11 nm . In the meantime you will get main stress at Intel at their skilled journalists and spoke men. :)
On a trip to Taiwan last summer, Harvard Business School professor Willy Shih heard that TSMC likely won’t match Intel’s 22-nanometer 3-D transistors for two to four years, a gap he characterized as “enormous.”  Well, Intel itself will not match it seems too for two to four years ! :))))

Intel's Broadwell K unlocked (35W TDP) still by the end 2014 , however not compatible with off the shelf Haswell boards

 Not compatible, in small quantities and thus expensive, VERY EXPENSIVE.

While Haswell and the Broadwell-powered 9-series will share the LGA1150 socket, there will be a number of slight changes between the two. The most notable changes are in the V_PROC_IO connection, as it requires a 1.05V power source, VCCST, because of a new type of power supply required, and to THRMTRIP because of a slightly different chip topology. This presents a number of backwards compatibility issues, and means that only motherboards that support refreshed Haswell will be compatible with the 9-series Broadwell chips. HASWELL REFRESH IS LOWER POWER HASWELL VERSION. AND BETWEEN NEW GENERATION AT INTEL WE HAVE NOW 3 YEARS. THAT MEANS THE NEXT ONE 11nm IS ONLY BY THE  2017 END .
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: High performance chip yield problems, obviously. Requires additional litography steps. However RDSEED security might be in !

IBM Lotus has NSA built in !

Lotus has even patented in 1998 elaborated  NSA intruding  plan ! Now we can only guess to what extent IBM did it in all its servers, mainframes and services. Strong statement from IBM president is needed or confidence and financial damages to IBM will follow ! World wide. Regardless of excuse because of terror threats , DO NOT BELIEVE IBM servers. If they existed (terrorists) in 1998 at all !___________________________
 99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Oh. NSA director and his deputy will resign soon.

Here is the REAL reason behind the obesity epidemic

 99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Yes. it applies to pets. :) Your RCA.

Broadwell is not compatible with nonrefreshed Haswell !

 What does it mean ? Broadwell is delayed, as Intel's Krzanic confirms.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: What I said long time ago? 14nm  will be delayed because of production difficulties. But let me explain what "new steps" mean: Longer production times and lower chip yield ! Intel did it, BUT at at what price? Briefly INTEL IS DELAYED one year back !
WHO CARES, what does it have in common with our security??

Well, broadly speaking, anti NSA RSEED instruction is delayed with Broadwell too !!
RDSEED to generate 16-, 32- or 64-bit random numbers according to NIST SP 800-90B and 800-90C

PINWALE: Yahoo, one of the NSA companies has collected data of 500 000 email users for spying!

The former analyst added that his instructors had warned against committing any abuses, telling his class that another analyst had been investigated because he had improperly accessed the personal e-mail of former President Bill Clinton.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: NSA decided that 500 000 users are literate terrorist ! Than optimized stolen data to ONLY 50 000 users. REMEDY to users of ANOTHER NSA buddy Microsoft: In start up menu of Microsoft XP or Win7 switch off Outlook default at start up !
Watergate, what was that ? Then Republicans spied Democrats, but Obama is (still) Democrat, isn't he ?

Are the Luddites wrong ?

Plummer points to a company like Kodak, which once employed 130,000, versus Instagram's 13.
Oxford researchers say that 45 percent of America’s occupations will be automated within the next 20 years.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Were the Luddites wrong ?
Or you can make an assembly line with only 13 ? Yes, obviously you can. What if neo Luddites think they are right and become new terrorists ? Look for example at this new monster truck. The 450mt capacity will continue the trend for ever increasing hauling capacity and the resulting reduction in hauling cost per ton. The truck will have 4600 horsepower and matched to Siemens drive systems.
AC electric drive Siemens MMT500 with two traction alternators, fourtraction electric motors and motor wheel reduction gears, auxiliary electric machines, adjustment and control devices.

MI5 director says questioning surveillance helps terrorists

THE DIRECTOR of the UK internal security service MI5 has said that questioning GCHQ communications surveillance is doing terrorists a favor and suggested that everyone stop talking 'nonsense' about snooping. 
Who cares says The Guardian.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: But who are the terrorist? One of them Ariel Sharon that personally sunk British ship with civilians  in PAlestina in 1947 was very frequent guest even at Queen, as Israel premier ! We should urgently make distinction between positive and negative terrorists ! All Jews are for example positive !

U.S. Raids in Libya and Somalia Strike Terror Targets

 U.S. Raids in Libya and Somalia Strike Terror Targets.
In Tripoli, American forces captured a Libyan militant who had been indicted in 2000 for his role in the 1998 bombings of the United States embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The militant, born Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai and known by his nom de guerre, Abu Anas al-Liby, had a $5 million bounty on his head; his capture at dawn ended a 15-year manhunt. 
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Wow. That was fast. Just a few days after. However, if it could be even more few days faster than the latest terror would not happen at all !. All further conclusions are yours.

PRISM damages up to $180B in year 2016 !

We think this estimate is too low and could be as high as $180 billion or a 25% hit to overall IT service provider revenues in that same timeframe. That is, if you believe the assumption that government spying is more a concern than the business benefits of going cloud.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: What about stage 2 is NOW ahead of step 1 ?

Forgive them Father, they don't know what they are doing

Former National Security Agency (NSA) CIO and CTO Dr Prescott Winter believes that many large organizations don't know what they're doing when it comes to cyber security and as a result defenses against hackers and cyber attacks are "appalling".
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Now adviser for many large organizations ?

Former Microsoft Privacy Chief Says He No Longer Trusts The Company

In the two years since leaving Microsoft, Bowden has ceased carrying a cell phone and become a staunch open source user, claiming that he no longer trusts a program unless he can see the source.
Long term, the problem could lead to the construction of digital firewalls, in which the United States is effectively isolated behind protective nodes built by local governments to scrub and redirect traffic away from potential capture points. This is directly in opposition to the central concept of the Internet, which is a dynamic structure capable of responding to outages or damage by routing around the problem. 
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK:Microsoft adviser doesn't know how to solve current traffic flow of internet at the picture above.

NSA: "Due to the Government Shutdown, this site is not being updated."

Elliptic Curve Cryptography provides greater security and more efficient performance than the first generation public key techniques (RSA and Diffie-Hellman) now in use. As vendors look to upgrade their systems they should seriously consider the elliptic curve alternative for the computational and bandwidth advantages they offer at comparable security.
Security Level
Ratio of
DH Cost : EC Cost
80 3:1
112 6:1
128 10:1
192 32:1
256 64:1
Table 2: Relative Computation Costs of Diffie-Hellman and Elliptic Curves
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: EC means Elliptic Curve.
There are plenty of elliptic curves to choose from. A cryptosystem based on a random one is virtually impregnable and hence protects our privacy. But it turns out that there are some elliptic curves that look random but actually allow for easy decryption; that's an example of a backdoor. It's a nontrivial mathematical problem to generate such curves (equipped with some extra data), but it can be done. And according to the reports, the NSA has been pushing the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the body that sets encryption standards in the United States, and various vendors to adopt such special elliptic curves since as early as 2006, knowing full well that they were prone to attacks.

Race towards Gbit internet subscribers is on

 Intel tried 100 gbit  Ethernet silicon based fiber at 800m distance. Competitive twisted pair standard is in trials too.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Apple TV would have nice infrastructure starting  in 2015. Or Apple will rot. 1Gbps fiber will land to curb 200m from your home.
