    Associated Press - Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:50 PM EDT

  • Intel is losing billions every year on tablets and smartphones

    The Verge - Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:47 PM EDT

    In recent months, Intel has been under pressure to explain why personal computers haven't been selling quite as well. In 2013, Intel's mobile chip division lost a hefty $3.15 billion, after posting an operating loss of $1.78 billion in 2012. In the first quarter of 2014 alone, the Mobile and Communications Group saw a $929 million operating loss on a meager $156 million in revenue, according to new financial results issued today by the company. While we'd previously seen Intel struggle for success with smartphones and tablets, this is the first quarter that Intel has broken out numbers for the mobile division alone, which is responsible for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and cellular connectivity in addition to the processors that feature in such devices.

  • New CEO Nadella pushes data culture at Microsoft

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:47 PM EDT

    Microsoft Corp needs a "data culture" to thrive in the new computing environment, according to Chief Executive Satya Nadella, in his third public appearance in three weeks putting his imprint on the software company. Nadella, who took the helm in February, is seeking to push Microsoft further toward mobile and 'cloud,' or Internet-connected, computing. That marks a shift from his predecessor, Steve Ballmer, whose world view was more tied to personal computers and the Windows operating system. "Every aspect of Microsoft's business is being fundamentally transformed because of data," said Nadella at a presentation in San Francisco on Tuesday.

  • New Apple tech doesn’t need GPS to determine your location

    BGR.com - Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:40 PM EDT

    Apple was awarded a patent on Tuesday for a technology that should allow for much more accurate indoor location detection and mapping, even in the absence of GPS. The new patent, which was picked up by Apple Insider, uses a combination of Wi-Fi access points, location databases and other data to determine proximity to what the patent called “presence areas.” It then analyzes various data such as Wi-Fi signal strength and building architecture to determine a more precise location. GPS often fails to provide accurate location data for when your are indoors, so this patent could help alleviate that problem. Apple has also shown interest in improved indoor mapping in the past. With iOS 7, it added support for iBeacons, which use Bluetooth LE More »New Apple tech doesn’t need GPS to determine your location

  • Intel dives into the Internet of Things, but still has a weak PC market to deal with

    Engadget - Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:39 PM EDT

    If you set foot in Intel's CES booth this winter, you probably sensed a theme: the company is deeply, almost manically, focused on the Internet of Things. Sure, Chipzilla was showing off some tablets and phones, along with a shelf full of Ultrabooks, but the highlights of the show were all a little more unusual. Think: a light-up "smart mug," headphones that can monitor your heart rate. More »Intel dives into the Internet of Things, but still has a weak PC market to deal with

  • The maker of Roomba says its robots may someday recognize everything in your house

    The Verge - Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:36 PM EDT

    The Roomba has been cleaning apartment floors for years now, but its creator sees a future where the popular household robot carries out far more useful chores. "Consumer research tells us that laundry is the number one household task that people spend their time on, so a laundry robot would be on top of the list," said iRobot CTO Paolo Pirjanian in an interview with MIT Technology Review. When it comes to navigation and helping robots understand their surroundings, Pirjanian said "the next generation that we’re working on uses a camera combined with inertial sensors like in a cell phone.

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:34 PM EDT

    By Nadia Damouni and Nicola Leske NEW YORK (Reuters) - The abrupt firing of Symantec Corp Chief Executive Steve Bennett last month is attracting activist investors and private equity firms to the U.S. security software maker, in a development that could potentially lead to its breakup or sale, sources familiar with the situation said. At the same time, a number of private equity firms, including Bain Capital, Blackstone Group LP and Carlyle Group LP, have started assessing the possibility of a leveraged buyout of all or parts of Symantec, the sources said. Bain did not respond to requests for comment, while the rest of the private equity firms declined to comment. Symantec, best known for its Norton antivirus software, is worth about $14 billion at its current stock price. More »Exclusive: Turmoil at Symantec luring activists, buyers - sources

  • Yahoo's earnings aren't about Yahoo anymore: all hail Alibaba

    The Verge - Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:33 PM EDT

    Yahoo has been under the leadership of CEO Marissa Mayer for almost two years now, but during today's earnings, all eyes were focused elsewhere. The company reported a quarterly revenue of $1.13 billion with earnings of 38 cents per share. As Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali says, the consensus was for Yahoo "to report another muted quarter ... in line with expectations."

  • First Heartbleed-Based Cyberattacks Discovered

    Tue, Apr 15, 2014 4:32 PM EDT

    One attack was at the Canadian tax agency and the other at a UK parenting website, which were allegedly accomplished using the Heartbleed bug, a flaw in a type of online encryption. The two cases appear to be unrelated, but in both instances snoops seemingly used the now-infamous flaw in OpenSSL, an online encryption software, to access the sites’ databases. In at least one of the breaches, the hackers stole the personal information of hundreds of people.
