Qualcomm EVP Murthy Renduchintala waxes futuristic in the Personal Media Hub

Qualcomm EVP Murthy Renduchintala waxes futuristic in the Personal Media Hub

This week we got the opportunity to have a chat with Qualcomm's EVP Murthy Renduchintala who made it clear that the company's future isn't just in making high-efficiency next-level processing power SoCs, but to make the smartphone (or smart device) the center of your world definitively. Speaking about how as Qualcomm aims to keep the entire mobile processor experience both high efficiency and high power, Renduchintala made the case for the company's foresight for a world where it's no longer a case-by-case basis in which you share and interact with the media you associate with, it's more of a management situation. You won't even think about it all, you'll just do it.

Utah State University unveils public transit bus with inductive charging

Utah State University unveils public transit bus with inductive charging

Researchers at Utah State University in Logan, UT have figured out a way to bring inductive charging to public transportation with an electric bus that's capable of recharging itself at each bus stop. Charging plates under the the pavement at each stop charge up the battery inside the bus, and while the plates and the bus have to be lined up somewhat in order to charge, they don't need to be perfectly lined up every time in order to juice up.

Microsoft reportedly planning three new Surface tablets

Well, this is interesting: it turns out that Microsoft might be planning as many as three new Surface tablets for release next year. Hardly surprisingly, considering it's clear Microsoft wants Surface to become a household name like some of the other devices floating around out there, but it does seem that the rumor is getting to work on this one especially early. Apparently, these three new Surface tablets include follow ups to Surface RT and Surface Pro, along with a new device called Surface Book.

Apple CPU demand might be too much for TSMC to handle

Apple CPU demand might be too much for TSMC to handle

We've been hearing that Apple is looking to replace Samsung as the main manufacturer of the CPUs found in its iDevices, and it seems that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacture Company (TSMC) will be the one to eventually take the reins. We're learning today that this could be both good and bad for TSMC - good, obviously, because Apple sells a lot of iPhones and iPads and would therefore need to buy a lot of CPUs. This could be bad for the same reason, though, considering that TSMC is going to need to dedicate a lot of its time and energy just to get Apple the components it needs.

Qualcomm Halo: Inside the tech of the world’s largest wireless car charging trial

Qualcomm Halo: Inside the tech of the world’s largest wireless car charging trial

Wireless charging has made headlines in recent weeks, but a new Qualcomm Halo trial kicking off in the UK is targeting the devices that live in your garage rather than in your pocket. Just as Google's Nexus 4 and Nokia's Lumia 920 each support wireless charging, rejuicing via simple desk pads rather than the fumble of slotting in a microUSB cable, so chip and wireless specialist Qualcomm sees the future of electric and hybrid urban mobility being wire-free. There's a big difference, though, between a fifty buck charging plate for your phone and a way of cutting the cord for electric vehicles and potentially opening up the road as a dynamic power highway. SlashGear caught up with Qualcomm and some select partners to find out what makes Halo special, and why it's just as much at home on a 200mph racing car as it is your city runabout.
