Intel unveils its IoT platform for businesses everywhere

Intel unveils its IoT platform for businesses everywhere

After failing to take the mobile device industry by storm, Intel is starting to look elsewhere for its next big break. It has already set its eyes on wearables, as the MICA smart fashion bracelet demonstrated. Now it is also laying the foundations for another venture, the so-called Internet of Things, or simply IoT. Intel's new IoT Platform is poised to cover anything and everything needed for enterprises to set up and then customize their own IoT implementations for securely connecting devices to the cloud and, in the end, save money and energy.

Luxottica and Intel partner to make smartglasses stylish

Luxottica and Intel partner to make smartglasses stylish

Smartglasses are picking up speed, with Google rumored to be adding Intel's presence to its Glass wearable and Vuzix putting its own M100 model up on Amazon for pre-order. Though smart eyewear is a lot of things, stylish isn't really one of them, and Intel aims to change that. The company has announced a new collaboration with Luxottica to mix its smart technology with the latter company's fashionable eyewear knowledge to usher in a future of stylish wearables.

Stephen Hawking’s voice gets a huge tech reboot

Stephen Hawking’s voice gets a huge tech reboot

Professor Stephen Hawking has been given a new voice, with an Intel-made communications system allowing the famed physicist to express himself more quickly, as well as opening the door to similar technology for others affected by similar diseases. Hawking, who has a motor neuron disease (MND) related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) which has left him almost completely paralyzed, can now type twice as fast as before, while other tasks like web searches are up to ten times faster. Intel is releasing the new software, three years in the making, under a free open-source license.

Intel acquires PasswordBox, may include service with McAfee

Intel acquires PasswordBox, may include service with McAfee

Security for your Intel-toting PC may soon be getting a whole lot easer. Intel made clear this morning that they'd be acquiring PasswordBox, a service that will allow users to collect all of their webpage passwords in to one package, requiring that they only remember a single password instead. PasswordBox has been in service for about a year, having been downloaded by users over 14 million times in the past 12-18 months. Intel has not let it be known exactly how they'll be integrating PasswordBox into their own services yet, but they have suggested that the PasswordBox will be moved into their security software business.

Here’s why Intel makes perfect sense for Google Glass v2

Here’s why Intel makes perfect sense for Google Glass v2

Guess what: Google Glass isn’t dead. The news that Intel will probably be found inside the next generation of Glass wasn’t so much a surprise for its “x86 vs ARM” narrative, but that Google was not only still committed to the wearable project but actively developing it. Although unconfirmed, as the whispers would have it, Intel’s silicon will oust the aging TI cellphone processor found in the current iteration of Glass, quite the coup for a chipmaker still struggling to make a dent in mobile. The switch is about more than just running Glass’ Android fork, however: it could mean a fundamental and hugely beneficial evolution in how Glass operates and how it addresses some of the current shortcomings in battery life and dependence on the cloud.

Next Google Glasses tipped to run on Intel chips

Next Google Glasses tipped to run on Intel chips

Google Glass might be losing some of its supporters lately but it has gained a somewhat surprising new ally. Insider sources claim that Google will be replacing the Texas Instruments processor with a still unnamed Intel mobile chip. At least, for the next iteration of Google Glass, a wearable device that has yet to see the light of day in retail. The new alliance is both fitting and rather unusual, given how the companies each have their own struggles in that specific corner of the market.

Intel’s last ditch effort: merge mobile and PC chip units

Intel’s last ditch effort: merge mobile and PC chip units

Despite what seems to be nothing but losses on the mobile front, Intel isn't ready to call it quits just yet, at least not formally. While some companies (HP and Sony come to mind) are divorcing their businesses in order to remain profitable in at least one area, Intel isn't about to let someone else take its mobile and tablet business elsewhere. Instead, it will be merging that loss-making unit into its division in charge of making chips for PCs, in the hopes that they will finally hit some sweet spot in the end.

Intel’s MICA: more than just a pretty face, still pricey

Intel’s MICA: more than just a pretty face, still pricey

Intel has just announced the availability of its new wearable MICA, short for My Intelligent Communication Accessory, where Intel and Opening Ceremony try bring up a product that blends technology and fashion. Unequivocally targeted at women who have a penchant for both worlds, MICA flaunts materials that very few smartbands and smartwatches would dare to wear. But it also has a bit of smarts hidden inside as well, though somewhat a bit less than a smartwatch, which still sounds quite OK, at least until you get to the price tag.

Nixie personal drone wins with Intel: coming your way soon

Nixie personal drone wins with Intel: coming your way soon

There's nothing impersonal about a little drone that attaches to your wrist then releases, flying, following you whenever you like. It's like having a personal assistant whose one purpose is watching everything you do. And streaming it. Capturing it for the whole world to see, followed by a return to your wrist to rest. We think it's an improbable device, but one that'd be amazing if realized - Intel thinks so too.

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

The following review is going to be short and to the point. Not because it doesn't deserve more words, not because it's not an important product. We'd never do such a thing. Instead, this review is going to be short because there's not much to say that we didn't already say in our first Falcon Northwest Tiki review and subsequent crowning of the device as the best gaming PC of the year in 2013. Never mind the fact that it was actually unveiled before the year began.
