Intel To Buy Smartphone Chipmaker Infineon For $2B

karvind Intel doesn't lead in server market (95 comments)

When it comes to desktop, laptop and server chips, Intel's pretty much got a lock on the market but everyone can see the writing on the wall: mobile chips and architectures are the future of computing thanks to the popularity of smartphones, but Intel doesn't have anything to offer in that regard.

Server market is a different ball game. Xeon are only in the low end server. IBM has lead in middle and high end servers with their P and Z systems. P and Z chips are custom designed for IBM systems only.

8-Core Intel Nehalem-EX To Launch This Month

karvind IBM Power7 also has 8 cores (186 comments)

If it is matter of core-war, IBM's latest Power7 also has 8 cores. It is actually based on 45nm technology compared to Intel's latest 32nm. What makes Power7 exciting is that it has on-die 32MB L3 cache. They achieved this by introducing eDRAM (embedded DRAM) in the technology. Both Nehalem-EX and Power7 are targeting low-end server market, so it should be interesting battle.

Repairing / Establishing Online Reputation?

karvind Re:Not to Worry (564 comments)

Agreed. And there are more reliable ways to do background search than randomly putting your name on Google. Because it is equally likely that if there is a Nobel Prize winner with same name as yours, they wouldn't be thrilled either.

karvind writes "Hats off to Kellie Lim, who became a triple amputee at age 8 because of bacterial meningitis, is to from UCLA's medical school on Friday. She plans to focus on childhood allergies and infectious disease. Lim, whose legs were amputated six inches below the knee, walks so normally that those who don't know her history can't tell she's walking on artificial limbs. When she lost her right forearm, Lim learned to use her left hand, minus three fingertips. Today, she can take blood and give injections one-handed."

Dupe story

karvind karvind writes  |  more than 9 years ago Aaagh, slashdot's search tool is not helpful and sometimes it doesn't even get the right thing. I submitted a story about CSIRO and before submission I couldn't find any other story about that (using Slashdot's search). Later while I was catching up with YRO section, I found that the story was published two days ago.

Unfortunately there is no option of deleting a submitted story before it gets accepted. I was expecting that editors will reject it realizing it was a dupe. Alas, it got accepted !!

I sent an email to Zonk (who seemed to be posting stories at that time) and CmdrTaco about it. It still shows the status as "accepted" for the story.

I guess I don't have to sacrifice sleep over this. :)
