This leaked memo just made Microsoft vs Consumer Reports fascinating

This leaked memo just made Microsoft vs Consumer Reports fascinating

Microsoft's war over Surface reliability with Consumer Reports has taken another unexpected turn, with leaks suggesting a combination of ambition and inexperience led to higher than expected return rates. The two companies came head to head last week, after Consumer Reports took the unexpected decision to strip Microsoft's Surface Book and Surface Laptop of their "recommended" ratings, in addition to warning buyers off the Surface Pro 4. That was down to the worrying results of a survey which suggested Microsoft's laptops and tablets were the least reliable in the industry.

Toyota’s smart car consortium wants to save the cloud

Toyota’s smart car consortium wants to save the cloud

Autonomous and connected cars are set to increase data flow exponentially, and so Toyota has teamed up with tech firms to make sure the infrastructure can handle it. The automaker has launched the Automotive Edge Computing Consortium, joining forces with Intel, Ericsson, NTT, NTT DOCOMO, DENSO, and Toyota's own InfoTechnology Center to look at alternative ways to deal with data, beyond the current "push it to the cloud and just process it there" approach. That, the group warns, simply won't be practical in the near future.

Intel plans 100 car self-driving fleet to pitch Mobileye and 5G

Intel plans 100 car self-driving fleet to pitch Mobileye and 5G

Intel is readying a fleet of fully autonomous cars built on its Mobileye acquisition, with more than a hundred vehicles expected to be deployed across multiple countries. The cars will be capable of Level 4 "high autonomy" according to the SAE definition, thus able to handle almost any situation without human interaction. They'll become a real-world test bed for Intel's experiments in car-to-cloud communication, new sensors, and more.

Intel Ruler SSD squeezes 300,000 movies into a single rack

Intel has revealed its latest SSDs, and while there have been advances internally, it's the design of its new "Ruler" SSD form-factor that's probably most striking. Named, unsurprisingly, after its long and skinny shape, the new drive may look unwieldy but it has been designed with a very specific purpose in mind. Namely, maximizing how much storage you can fit into a single rack.

Apple Watch LTE tipped for this year [Update]

Apple Watch LTE tipped for this year [Update]

Apple may finally have cracked the Apple Watch LTE battery problem, with reports that a cellularly-connected version is launching later this year. Rumors of a version of the company's smartwatch which could independently connect to cellular networks without requiring a tethered iPhone have circulated since even before the first-generation Apple Watch was released in April 2015. However, fitting sufficient power into such a device has always been a limiting factor.

Intel Coffee Lake CPU may be a bitter upgrade to swallow

Intel CPU fans eager to upgrade to the chip maker's upcoming Coffee Lake silicon may find themselves with a bigger than expected hit on their wallet. The new processors are set to succeed Intel's Kaby Lake models, using 14nm Tri-Gate processes and offering up to 30-percent performance gains over current seventh-generation 15W mobile CPUs. However, in doing so it's looking like they'll break backward compatibility.

Intel Curie Arduino 101 board gets the ax

Intel Curie Arduino 101 board gets the ax

Spring cleaning or killing spree, you decide. Intel has been rather aggressively “retiring” some of its less profitable endeavors, most of them revolving around the Internet of Things and wearable devices. Although it hasn’t formally acknowledge letting go of its wearables division, Intel did put its low-power Curie chip to pasture. Naturally, that has meant that the Arduino 101 is also following suit, bringing a formal end to Intel’s dreams on small form factor computers and devices.

Intel Clover Trail PCs – security updates until 2023 only

If you were one of the early, and probably disappointed, adopters of the first breed of Windows 8.1 hybrids and convertibles, Microsoft has a good news, bad news thing for you. The good news is that your device is going to be supported for another six years. The bad news is that it only applies to security fixes. As far as “Windows as a Service” is concerned, last year’s Anniversary Update is the end of the line for these devices.
