ARM Launches Cortex-A5 Processor, To Take On Atom

not-enough-info Good news for future iphone (176 comments)

Looks like the Cortex-A5 has 50% more performance while using 1/3rd the power of the current generation ARM11 found in the iPhone. As a game developer this makes me hopeful that we'll see cellphones as a gaming platform without sacrificing useful battery life.

Melting Memory Chips In Mass Production

not-enough-info Re:Durability and Other Limitations (117 comments)

PCM is interesting stuff. Here's some info:

  • It'll be heat sensitive - weak crystal bonds will 'fail' if the module gets too hot. This also means interesting challenges around soldering.

Unlikely. GeSbTe has a crystallization point of 400C. Well above typical soldering temperatures (230C-350C depending on process)

You've obviously never been near a Yorkshire Terrier or a Shetland Sheepdog. I can differentiate those breeds with my eyes closed at 5 meters.

When Digital TV broadcasts kick in in earnest ...

not-enough-info Rabbit ears work pretty well. (352 comments)

When I got my last TV I picked up a $14 set of rabbit ear antennas. Since the signal is digital, if I'm in range, I get a perfect picture with little hassle. Many of the broadcasters aren't yet fully invested, but after the switch there'll be no real reason for them not to be and I'm sure I'll be able to get even more crystal clear OTA channels with my cheap antenna. All in all, this is a good thing.
