Roku users should listen up: HBO GO is a GO. If you're an HBO GO subscriber, and you also own a Roku box, you can now get unlimited access to over 1,400 of your favorite HBO shows, including HBO original series, hit movies, sports, comedy specials–plus bonus features, and more. It's probably just one of many streaming deals to land in HBO's court in the coming months, but what's most interesting here is that HBO GO is already available in typical Web browsers for HBO subscribers. But if you already own a Roku box, it's just more convenient. Plus, HBO on demand may not have everything at once;... Read more...

Spotify just keeps getting bigger and bigger. As streaming media becomes the norm (and the expectation), more and more users are flocking to all-you-can-listen services such as Spotify. Despite only arriving in America months back, the service is already grabbing a ton of traction here and they're about to make an even bigger splash. Before, you needed a Spotify invite in order have access. Now, it's open to all in America, and better still, the first six months of unlimited music streaming are totally free. Totally free! Talk about a tease. After those six months are up, you'll be faced with ten... Read more...

At its Fusion Development Summit this week, AMD discussed the concepts and capabilities it's targeting for future generations of AMD graphics cards. The company isn't sharing any specific architectural features, but even the general information it handed out is interesting. Demers began by talking about the history of ATI's graphics card and the evolution of the company's GPU design. When ATI originally designed its DX9 hardware, it designed its vertex shaders to use a VLIW5 (Very Long Instruction Word) implementation. Back in such halcyon days of yore, Nvidia's programmable G80 was scarcely... Read more...
Larrabee, Intel's once-vaunted, next-generation graphics card died years ago, but the CPU technology behind the would-be graphics card has lived on. Intel discussed the future of MIC/Knight's Corner today. After Larrabee was officially canceled, Intel repurposed the design and seeded development kits to appropriate market segments. MIC cards won't start shipping until the 22nm Knight's Corner chip is launched, but even the Knight's Ferry prototypes offer tantalizing hints at what future performance might be resemble. Like Larrabee, Knight's Corner (and future MIC products in general) utilize a... Read more...
AMD's GPU solutions have come a long way since the company acquired ATI. The combined companies have competed very well against Nvidia for the past several years, at least at the consumer level. When it comes to HPC/GPGPU tools, however, Nvidia has had the market all to itself. Granted, the GPGPU market hasn't exactly exploded, but Nvidia has sunk a great deal of effort into developing PhysX and CUDA. AMD has announced a new suite of programming tools it plans to use to woo developers in the burgeoning field. "AMD is working closely with the developer community to make it easier to bring the benefits... Read more...
Heather Mackey of Nvdia has written a new blog post discussing the company's hardware emulation equipment, thus affording us an opportunity to discuss a little-mentioned aspect of microprocessor development.  Although we'll be discussing Nvidia products in particular, both software tools (aka, simulation) and hardware emulation are vital to all microprocessor design firms, including Intel, AMD, Via/Centaur, and ARM. There's a significant difference between software simulation and hardware emulation. In simulation, software tools are used to simulate the logic of a new design or product respin.... Read more...
Yesterday, at the Embedded Systems Conference, AMD announced a new embedded Radeon GPU, the E6760. Unlike its previous offerings in this segment, the E6760 is capable of driving up to six displays and supports OpenCL. "The AMD Radeon E6760 GPU provides customers with superior business economics through long lifecycle management and product stability,” said Richard Jaenicke, director of Embedded Client Business for AMD. “Embedded system designers faced with power and density constraints now have a solution that delivers the advanced 3D graphics and multimedia features they require in...

If you're against pop culture, you should turn your nose up and dash away as soon as possible. Virgin Mobile has just debuted a new free music app in the Android Market, but it probably won't appeal to those who aren't in tune with the Top 40. At least not yet. Virgin Mobile Live 2.0 is the app's name, and it will give all Android users who dare download it access to a music stream hosted by DJ Abbey Braden, as well as past Virgin Mobile FreeFest performance videos, and “check in” features at events and performances, such as Lady Gaga concerts. Every status update from within the app... Read more...
