Apple, Samsung, and Intel.
"I believe it’s in Apple’s best interest to move away from Samsung as the sole supplier of its A-series chips. Adding another supplier (or two) would be better than the current set-up, of course, but Apple should move away from Samsung entirely, and as soon as possible."
This isn’t a knock on Samsung. It just makes sense to have at least two suppliers.
"I imagine that few, if any, of those companies could produce enough chips to satisfy Apple’s demand. But there is one company with the ability to meet Apple’s demand, a company with decades of semiconductor fabrication experience, a company that recently started to produce the designs of other companies’ ARM-based SoCs: Intel."
Enter Merrifield? Moorefield?

No more pen spinning for me, these guys broke my spirit cause they’re so good :)
Tizen, Tizen, Tizen.
Android = has majority share of mobile devices.
Android - Samsung = does NOT have majority share of mobile devices.
(Samsung has about 65% share of Android devices http://www.localytics.com/blog/2014/samsung-remains-king-of-the-android-market/)
This could kill Google. Or Samsung. Or both. It’d be funny to see Windows Mobile rise up from Samsung’s move.

Samsung is preparing for a ‘post-Google era.’
Samsung Medial Solution Center President Hong Won-pyo told reporters today that Samsung is rapidly developing its Tizen operating system as an alternative to Android in preparation for a “post-Google era.”
He said Samsung will release products that run on Tizen “as early as possible” and is looking for mergers and acquisitions to speed up the process of moving off Android.
The biggest barrier right now, he said, are “poor market conditions” (i.e. that Tizen doesn’t have any apps).

Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.
Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
Beautiful gif art. <3
Oh my Lord. We have to have these at AJAM.
