Intel buys up Mobileye to boost autonomous driving efforts

Intel just became a bigger player in the realm of autonomous driving, announcing its planned acquisition of Mobileye today. If you've been following the rise of autonomous cars, you've likely already heard of Mobileye, as it has been developing machine learning and computer vision systems for self-driving cars. With Intel's increasing interest in the autonomous driving space, it makes Mobileye a pretty good acquisition target.

Porsche Design BOOK ONE 2-in-1 out-hinges Surface Book

Porsche Design may not be the first company you'd think of to make a Microsoft Surface Book competitor, but the Porsche Design BOOK ONE is no simple 2-in-1. Revealed at Mobile World Congress 2017 today, the BOOK ONE promises the sort of high-style, high-performance computing that someone with a Porsche 911 key on their keychain might want. That means Windows 10, 7th generation Intel Core i7 processors, and a very mechanically-interesting hinge.

Razer Blade 14-inch gaming laptop gets 4K boost

Razer Blade 14-inch gaming laptop gets 4K boost

This week the folks at Razer have given the Razer Blade 14-inch gaming laptop the option of a 4K display. That's absolute madness if you're thinking of bringing the laptop on an airplane for an extended flight, but right in line with the excellence that is highest-end home-laptop computing. This notebook also now has a Kaby-Lake Intel Core i7-7700HQ Quad-Core Processor (2.8 GHz / 3.8 GHz).

300 Intel drones light up Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl act

300 Intel drones light up Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl act

From smartphones to wearables to smart appliances, and now, to drones. That seems to be the journey that Intel has taken as it tries to gain some ground in markets outside its traditional PC silicon market. Although it's not exactly taking on more established drone makers like DJI head on, it is aiming for a more niche segment where it might actually stand uncontested for some time. And what better way to make a big splash than by launching 300 of those drones above the Super Bowl Halftime show.

Apple working on MacBooks with ARM chips for low-power mode

Apple working on MacBooks with ARM chips for low-power mode

No, Apple isn’t working on ARM-powered MacBooks that will take on Chromebooks and 2-in-1 convertibles in the lower market segments. The report coming from Bloomberg, instead, highlights the addition of an ARM processor working alongside an Intel one. This ARM chip, however, will only kick in when the MacBook goes into low-power mode, thereby prolonging the laptop’s battery life. And while Apple may not have any short-term plans to ditch Intel’s chips, it still doesn’t bode well for Intel’s image in the power efficiency department.

Intel Baby Canyon NUC: Kaby Lake, Thunderbolt 3, Optane-ready

The slim Compute Card may have been the star of Intel's CES 2017 show, but it is hardly the only big thing it revealed back then. For the more traditional computer users, Intel has also unveiled the next generation of its "Next Unit of Computing", or NUC mini PCs. Aside from naturally running on its next processors of computing, namely the 7th gen Kaby Lake Core chips, these NUCs also signal the return of the Thunderbolt on the small boxes as well as heralding the arrival of ultra fast Optane SSDs.

Intel Compute Card will power NexDock’s next “thin” laptop

Intel Compute Card will power NexDock’s next “thin” laptop

At CES 2017 earlier this month, Intel unveiled something new yet something also familiar, a nearly complete computer board just a little larger than a credit card. Intel wants its new Compute Card to be the dockable brain of future devices, including smart appliances. NexDock, the people behind a more or less successful crowdfunded device of the same name, is taking that brain and putting it inside its next ambitious project, which, unsurprisingly, is another NexDock.

Intel has a $100m plan to bring the IoT and robots to the high street

Shopping is about to get seriously high-tech, with Intel launching its Responsive Retail Platform, an Internet of Things upgrade for stores that will track shoppers as much as stock. Announced today, the Intel RRP is effectively a combination of a common language for various sensors intended for use in retail environments, a new tracking device, and a cloud-gateway combination that, altogether, promise to make brick & mortar stores as clever as their pattern-calculating online counterparts. Along the way, it might also mean more robots in the aisles.

Intel Compute Card is just a little bigger than your credit card

Intel may have not been able to corner the mobile market as it had dreamed, but that hasn't stopped it from shrinking its technology into smaller and smaller sizes. OK, so maybe it has also thrown in the towel as far as wearables are concerned, so it's aiming for the next big trend in consumer electronics: the Internet of Things. To help device and appliance manufacturers kickstart their IoT production process with Intel at the core, the chip maker will be making available a Compute Card they can just slot into their product to make them smarter and connect to the World Wide Web.
