"This is about reinventing the PC, making it more of a consumer electronics device,"
Totally clueless! The PC can never be a true consumer electronics device because its open. Tinkering with CPUs does precisely zero to address this.
Double the pace of Moore's Law caught my eyes. With the new tri-gates, the low power Atom is expected. 15W seems high for mobile phone. Yet, it will be good for laptop and tablet. Typical consumers may choose GUI over the processing power and/ or power consumption. Will the low power Atom get an edge over ARM in the tablet market?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
