End of Moore's law

Seems that scaling down what is the essence of Moore's law is dead. At least for NAND until emerge of EUV who know when. End don't forget BAD HARDWARE WEEK was first as always, when bad news are in sight.
 99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Do you see anything in 14nm in the map above in  2014?
In the end you will get a chip that looks like it was built on a 22nm process, is sized like it was built on a 20nm process, but has the dynamic range and power consumption of a 14nm chip. Predicted at BAD HARDWARE WEEK long time ago. Oh yeah, what about chip area scaling? Between a 7% and 15% shrink, thanks to the poly and contact pitch work.

Google patches SSL blow

Any 1024 bit PGP certificate is not secure, so government had no any need to ask for click-jacking permission :)
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: 2048 bit key might suffice, but there is recent blow in prime number factorization to 70 million numbers close neighbor. That means you are completely open to those who know this !

End of Moore's law is at 14 nm

 3D is the next step. But not in 14nm. Probably in 45nm. At least for flash NAND chips.

Intel's Atom is actually downclocked Netburst architecture

 Z2780 can boost up to 2GHz. Future pipeline extensions could bring it close to 30 stages and close to 4 GHz clock. Yeah they would be called turbo mode, in this deja vue only new is actually perverted terminology. New are only C energy saving modes. Netburst hadn't any.

There is no 32nm node at Intel

In the end, there was no magic, Intel did the obvious and made the transistors different lengths. There are two things to note in the table above, gate pitch and gate length. Compare and contrast that to the Vt and it becomes pretty clear that length is the overriding factor for Vt control in Intel 22nm transistors. Pitch also varies quite a bit, but you need to make structures thicker if you run more energy through them, and pitch is where it plays out. Pitch is now equal 3 times the gate length.  What use of gate scaling ?

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Each design is optimized. In the end, gate pitch decide on overall device performance.

Intel's low power debacle

 Intel apparently used screenshots from ARM's Developer Studio 5 (DS-5) in its recent Silvermont microarchitecture presentation.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: I like so much Intel's future transition from 14nm to 14nm. Just as found at BAD HARDWARE WEEK. Beside this Silvermont freshes from ARM, hardly to see others.

Moore's law is dead !

 Intel's Haswell gives 9% more performance after 9% more power. No any scaling.

 The days of the Celeron 300A aren't coming back. Hahahhahahhahahhaah. Intel's Integrated VR would boost up to 400A so Haswell is actually latest contribution to global warming !

Samsung developing 5G telecommunication technology, to roll out year 2020

The new platform will enable mind blowing data transfer rates of:
10 Gbps peak download speeds pales the current generation 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology in practice which offers 'only'

French Military Donated Code to Mozilla Thunderbird

 That qualifies it for NATO's closed messaging system, and the French military has shown TrustedBird to NATO, military officials said.

Some observers said the original decision to go to open source was in part to show the French public that the government was trying to save money. But many software experts say free software also has its costs and the French acknowledged that.
"It is never completely free," said Col. Bruno Poirier-Coutansais of the information technology team Gendarmerie Nationale.

Operating System 32-bit support 64-bit support
Windows Yes No
Mac OS X Yes Yes
Linux Yes Yes

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK:  Seems not free in 64bit Windows.

Intel's radical architecture departure

PC Watch thinks that in second iteration Haswell will offer radical architecture departure likely to IBM Cell architecture, though it is already a lot in. Involving 32MB of eDRAM L3 will boost graphics performance, but multicore up to 18 cores too. It should be located in the middle around xbar switch


Japan to develop new exaflop supercomputer by 2020

Working group of  experts has finished the midterm draft of the development plan, and the project is expected to be finished by 2020.

Bring at work your own device

Gartner Predicts by 2017, Half of Employers will Require Employees to Supply Their Own Device for Work Purposes
Gartner defines a BYOD strategy as an alternative strategy that allows employees, business partners and other users to use a personally selected and purchased client device to execute enterprise applications and access data. It typically spans smartphones and tablets, but the strategy may also be used for PCs. It may or may not include a subsidy.

You can't teach an old dog new tricks

Microsoft may never be cool or dominant again, but it stands a decent chance of finding the keys to being a newly powerful and profitable force in the emerging technology landscape.
The Wall Street Journal recently coined the term “tech’s rust belt” to refer to Microsoft and other laggards.

Analyzing 450 million lines of software code

Analyzing 450 million lines of software code.
For projects with more than one million lines of code, defect density decreased to .66, which suggests that proprietary projects generally experience an increase in software quality as they exceed that size.

Open source projects with between 500,000 – 1,000,000 lines of code, however, had an average defect density of .44, while that same figure increased to .75 for open source projects with more than one million lines of code, marking a decline in software quality as projects get larger.


How myth of Noe's Flood concieved

The 5165-m-high Ararat, also known as Agri Dagi, is Turkey's highest and easternmost volcano, lying near the border with Armenia. Ararat appears to have been active during the 3rd millennium BC , 2450 BC ± 50 years; pyroclastic-flow deposits overlie early Bronze Age artifacts and human remains. A phreatic eruption and pyroclastic flow may have occurred at the time of a July 1840 earthquake and landslide.
 99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Deposits below Ararat third peak associate to extreme high flood around the area. Seems clearly visible only in this computer synthesized image.

Berrygate: Are all phone calls recorded and accessible to the US government ?

 Are all telephone calls recorded and accessible to the US government?
BURNETT: Tim, is there any way, obviously, there is a voice mail they can try to get the phone companies to give that up at this point. It's not a voice mail. It's just a conversation. There's no way they actually can find out what happened, right, unless she tells them?
CLEMENTE: "No, there is a way. We certainly have ways in national security investigations to find out exactly what was said in that conversation. It's not necessarily something that the FBI is going to want to present in court, but it may help lead the investigation and/or lead to questioning of her. We certainly can find that out.
BURNETT: "So they can actually get that? People are saying, look, that is incredible.
CLEMENTE: "No, welcome to America. All of that stuff is being captured as we speak whether we know it or like it or not."
Mockingbird. Noun. Species well known for its characteristic repeating of other bird songs in a loud and mocking fashion. Also the title of a piece by famed rap artiste Marshall Mathers (stage name Eminem). This work is truly deserving of the title, as it makes a mock of the genre itself along with his previous work.

"'In fact, the UAE is exercising its sovereign right and is asking for exactly the same regulatory compliance - and with the same principles of judicial and regulatory oversight - that Blackberry grants the US and other governments and nothing more,' [UAE Ambassador to the US Yousef Al] Otaiba said. 'Importantly, the UAE requires the same compliance as the US for the very same reasons: to protect national security and to assist in law enforcement.'"
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Orwell's 1984 is now called Blackberry. Yeah we know, Obama adorns his Blackberry.
