Intel launches major new processor range

Intel launched a new family of mainstream processors on Wednesday -- an important step for the company which has had trouble keeping up in a marketplace that is increasing defined by mobile devices.

The chips were previously known by their "Skylake" code-name but with their launch are now called the sixth-generation Intel Core processors.

They are the product of four years of development at Intel and will begin appearing in new desktop, laptop and tablet PCs before the end of the year. They come just after Microsoft launched its new Windows 10 operating system and the PC industry is hoping that will drive consumers to buy new machines.

Intel senior vice president Kirk Skaugen has his eye on the upgrade market: "There are more than a billion PCs out there that are more than 3 years old," he said at a news conference in Berlin.

Simple self-driving golf carts point the way for autonomous cars

One of the obstacles to deploying autonomous vehicles is the high cost of some components, but researchers are experimenting with self-driving golf carts that use minimal and relatively cheap gear. 

The scientists from MIT and Singaporean universities deployed two modified Yamaha electric golf carts in the Southeast Asian city-state. They envision the self-driving vehicles being used in a shared transportation system, as rental bicycles are used in many cities. 

As seen in a YouTube video, the carts transported 500 people along winding paths in public gardens in Singapore while autonomously navigating and watching for obstacles such as pedestrians and animals.

Toshiba's swanky Satellite Radius 12 laptop is brimming with cutting-edge features

The best thing about new PCs that come out during major technology transitions is they can be absolutely overflowing with the latest features. Toshiba?s new Satellite Radius 12 announced Wednesday is a perfect example of that. This 12.5-inch convertible is a slick, feature-stuffed laptop designed to turn heads and encourage envy among your techy friends.

The first drool factor is the screen, which is a 12.5-inch IPS touchscreen display with 3840-by-2160 ?4K? resolution. That?s four times the number of pixels in a 1080p display. At this point I?d like to direct all audio/visual purists to the comment section below to vent over whether an UltraHD display is worth it on a screen this size.

MSI embraces Skylake and Thunderbolt 3.0 for new gaming laptops

If a single M.2 drive is too pathetic with its 1GBps read speed, then MSI has your number: The company said its updated Skylake gaming laptop will feature ?Super RAID 4,? which combines two PCIe NVMe M.2 drives into RAID 0.

The result is a read speed pushing roughly 2GBps. Super RAID 4 will be featured in the company?s updated Skylake-based laptops, announced Wednesday at IFA in Berlin.

MSI?s latest Skylake laptops have Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C.

Samsung, Apple patent dispute heads for retrial on damages

A patent dispute between Apple and Samsung Electronics in a California court is headed for a retrial next year, after an appeals court vacated and sent back to the lower court for further proceedings a part of the damages award by a jury.

The retrial with eight jurors is now scheduled for March or April next year, Judge Lucy H. Koh of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose division proposed Tuesday.

The judge indicated that she was acting on the mandate just received from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The lawsuit has dragged in the district court since 2011 alongside another suit also for patent infringement.

Verizon to introduce SDN security feature later this month

Verizon will introduce a virtualized firewall service across its global network later this month, part of its move into software-defined networking.

The aim is to help businesses such as manufacturers or retailers, who may be running networks in far-flung places, to have better security when connecting their applications to the corporate network, said Shawn Hakl, head of network platforms and managed services for Verizon Enterprise Solutions.

The type of organizations Verizon is aiming to attract are those running a Layer 3 private network who may want a better and more reliable connection for people using mobile apps.

Mobile users will connect to whatever network is available and then onto Verizon's private network, Hakl said. Applications can securely connect, and the traffic can be put through the usual security inspections before it goes into the corporate network.
