McAfee is the computing equivalent of epilepsy. It's the reason I boot my computer, go get a coffee, surf my smartphone, then log in.
Of course, locking up my machine is a great way to prevent it from getting infected.
Extending it to embedded systems borders on misanthropy.
I think what he means is that different ARM cores need different optimizations.
Of course not all ARM cores would be targeting Windows. People would only be interested in putting Windows on the newer Coretex A9 or greater cores.
A transparent piece of FUD from Intel, we'll it worked before with the 386.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLzBYfNhRF8)
ARM doesn't need Windows, they're already shipping on the hottest products today. Microsoft needs ARM.
Intel had its head in the cloud, as IBM did with PC's. Remember Intel blocked all of AMD's efforts; their promise on Larrabee was an eye opener for me- I didnt believe it was a realistic approach, and felt it was more about fear and control. Intel then had nothing to offer hetrogeneous computing once unleashed, except smaller dies. At this time they have the fastest CPU's but how long can they hold off the march of hetrogeneous chips to servers. AMD is sitting in a nice position- realize , AMD knew Intel didnt or felt they could control the market. that sucks
It's hard for me to imagine how both Intel and Microsoft let themselves get left so far behind ARM, Apple, and Google in the fastest growing consumer markets on the planet. How does that happen? And now that they finally seem to realize their shortcomings, they are trying to play catch up when they really need to focus on how to leap frog their competition. Are they capable of innovating their way back?
Blog Doing Math in FPGAs Tom Burke 24 comments For a recent project, I explored doing "real" (that is, non-integer) math on a Spartan 3 FPGA. FPGAs, by their nature, do integer math. That is, there's no floating-point ...
