17-inch laptops are becoming somewhat of a rarity these days. Every manufacturer has a couple of models in their line-up, but they don't get a ton of attention because they're typically quite bulky and harder to tote around than sleeker, smaller machines.

Apple is eager to leave Intel behind as the supplier of CPUs for its Mac lineup, but bear in mind that this transition to using Arm-based silicon based on custom home brewed designs in place of Intel's x86 CPUs is not an overnight thing—Apple last year said it would take a couple of years to complete the transition...

We learned earlier this week that Intel made some branding changes to its process nodes, and the company gave us some insight into the advanced technology that will underline its Intel 20A node.

Most people would agree that AMD has done a fantastic job under the guidance of Dr. Lisa Su, who navigated the company into Zen and RDNA waters, the two major architectures that underpin its modern CPUs and GPUs. Having once again established itself as a relevant force in the high-end space, AMD is looking to keep the... Read more...
You probably thought you were done with brain-jarring algebra and trigonometry from your school days but that may not be the case, thanks to some legal lunacy out of California. New energy efficiency regulations, which went into effect on July 1st and have been adopted by five other US states, limit the amount of... Read more...

If you want to be stealthy, perhaps not wearing a hot pink suit is a good choice. When it comes to cybersecurity, avoiding computer languages that people have come to know and recognize is a good idea as well. Threat actors have seemingly figured out the latter as some malware has now been built using “exotic”... Read more...
Apple first brought biometric authentication to its smartphone family with the iPhone 5s in 2013, courtesy of Touch ID. Over the next several years, Apple would refine Touch ID to make it faster and more secure until it launched its successor, Face ID, with the iPhone X in 2017. Today, Apple tablets and smartphones...

In the past, there have been some big slip-ups when commentators did not know that they were on-air and began speaking their mind to other people. This seems to have happened again at the Tokyo Olympics when an Italian TV announcer did not realize he was live on-air when he asked for his computer password. Posted... Read more...
In an effort to clear up confusion over different builds, Google stopped naming its Android releases after tasty desserts starting with Android 10, which came out almost two years ago.

As would be expected after abandoning the smartphone business earlier this year, LG's share of the handset market in the United States has taken a major hit—the latest data shows LG's smartphone share plummeted 35 percent in the first half of 2021, compared to a year ago. Meanwhile, OnePlus is doing gangbusters with... Read more...
Intel Accelerated took place yesterday, during which CEO Pat Gelsinger laid out a roadmap for the process technologies that will form the basis of its future processors (and those of its customers).
