Stoobalou Beast (1 comments)

That thing sounds *epic*. An ARM-based design with quad-core CPU and twelve-core GPU, performing *better* than a significantly higher power Core 2 Duo? Want.

Mac App Store Apps Already Hacked

Stoobalou Re:This Is Completely Misleading (148 comments)

It doesn't say 'Mac App Store Hacked'... it says 'Mac App Store *APPS* Hacked', which is quite clear in my book.

This Is Apple's Next iPhone

Stoobalou Re:FAIL! (492 comments)

Well... seeing as the pics on Engadget have the Gizmodo logo watermarked all over them, I'd take a rough guess at it being the same phone. Conspiracy solved

Cameron Threatens To Shut Down UK Social Networks

Stoobalou Stoobalou writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "In a move worthy of China's communist regime, UK PM David Cameron wants to shut down social networks whenever civil unrest rears its head in Britain's towns and cities.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Cameron said, "Everyone watching these horrific actions will be struck by how they were, organised via social media.

"Free flow of information can be used for good. But it can also be used for ill. So we are working with the police, the intelligence services and industry to look at whether it would be right to stop people communicating via these websites and services when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality.""

Stoobalou Stoobalou writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "A coalition of TV-making tech giants has teamed up to create what it hopes will become the de facto standard for active shutter 3D glasses.

Panasonic, Samsung and Sony have all jumped into bed with glasses-maker Xpand for a project snappily named the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative in order to consolidate all of the disparate technologies currently out their under one three-dimensional umbrella."

Installing OSX Lion On A Real World Mac

Stoobalou Stoobalou writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "It's all very well reviewers telling you how Apple's OSX Lion works on a brand new Mac with a clean install and no clutter, but what happens when you've got a three-year-old Mac Pro stuffed full of digital detritus with a spider's web of USB and Firewire devices hanging out of the back of it, not to mention four monitors of questionable heritage?

Check out this real world review of Apple's latest OS."

Intel Details Dynamic Resolution Rendering Tech

Stoobalou Stoobalou writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "Intel is risking the ire of hardcore gamers by suggesting that PC gaming can learn a trick or two from the world of consoles by altering a game's rendering resolution on the fly in order to boost performance.

Intel's latest chips, the Sandy Bridge series, pack some impressive graphical horsepower compared to the company's previous attempts, but still lag behind the performance of dedicated graphics from AMD or Nvidia. While that hasn't been a problem in the past — as there is a significant cost for an OEM to include discrete graphics with its product — AMD's move to the Fusion platform and the 'accelerated processing' concept threatens Intel's hold on the integrated graphics market."

AMD Grabs Fastest Mobile GPU Crown From Nvidia

Stoobalou Stoobalou writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "AMD has scored another point over its graphics rival Nvidia with what it claims is the world's fastest single-GPU mobile graphics processor, the Radeon HD 6990M.

While the red team is unlikely to hold the crown for long in the fast-moving world of discrete graphics, the company's latest chip is certainly impressive enough. Based on the TeraScale 2 unified processor architecture and the Barts GPU core, the Radeon HD 6990M — a mobile equivalent to the company's high-end Radeon HD 6990 PCI Express graphics card design — features 1,120 stream processing units, 56 texture units, 128 Z/stencil ROP units, and 32 colour ROP units."

GlobalFoundries Gets Ready For 300mm Wafers

Stoobalou Stoobalou writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "Semiconductor fabricator GlobalFoundries has announced a new stage of its race to support 300mm wafer sizes in its manufacturing plants: a move from construction to equipment installation.

For the past year, the company has been constructing brand-new clean rooms in its New York and Dresden facilities, ready to support the 300mm wafer size. It's been a long project, but one which will hopefully start bearing fruit soon with Fab 1 in Dresden pushing manufacturing up to 80,000 wafers per month once the equipment is installed."

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "Apple has served independent software distributor GetJar with a cease & desist order over its use of the term 'App Store.'
GetJar — which says it is the world's largest free app store with over two billion downloads of 150,000 mobile applications on multiple platforms including Android, Blackberry, Java and Symbian — has told Steve Jobs in no uncertain terms what he can do with his order."

Space Shuttle Atlantis Heads Into Space

Stoobalou Stoobalou writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "The last-ever space shuttle launch has taken place, despite some last-minute glitches that saw the countdown held at just T-minus 31 seconds.

Coming in the last few minutes of a tight launch window at an overcast day as the computers at Mission Control handed off to those within the Atlantis shuttle itself, the short hold left many wondering if the weather would close in before the glitch was corrected."

Pinhead-Sized Camera Developed by US University

Stoobalou Stoobalou writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Stoobalou (1774024) writes "Scientists at Cornell University have developed a camera small enough that several of them could sit on the head of a pin.
The device, which is 100th of a millimetre thick and less than half a millimetre on each side, won't exactly replace your DSLR — resolving, as it does, just 20x20 pixels — but the development has wide reaching implications in many industries.
Costing just a few pennies to manufacture, the tiny device, which resembles a miniaturised CD, could soon be seen in consumer gadgets, robot monkey butlers and surgical theatres."
