  Windows Is Better At Security Than Android
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 04-11-2017, 09:12 PM - Forum: Smart Phones - No Replies

https://www.neowin.net/news/wileyfox-is-...an-android

Quote:Indeed, the company plans to launch a Windows phone, and it's coming in August. Wileyfox will focus on selling it to businesses, citing Windows being better for security than Android. Vice president of sales Andy Lee said the following:
Quote:Windows is much better for security that’s why it’s more suited for B2B. Android can be opened up. Increasingly people are screaming for costs to come down and want a good affordable device. If businesses are going to buy thousands of devices to kit out their work force, they need a good price point. That’s where we’re going to hit it out. Most firms can’t afford to spend £500 per device. But with us they can be assured quality and the right features.

  Skylake-X And Kaby Lake-X Thread
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 04-11-2017, 08:10 PM - Forum: General Hardware - No Replies

https://www.techpowerup.com/232272/intel...f-schedule

Quote:The rumor mill turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. However, some of those really do turn to reality, like recent accounts of an AMD Polaris 20 chip surfacing in the latest RX 500 series. This time, Intel is in the crosshairs, with the company's high-performance Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X desktop components being pegged for release between June 19th and July 9th. This would place an announcement on the new chipset and CPUs debut to drop around Computex 2017, which kicks off on May 30 and runs through June 3 in Taipei.

Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X parts are supposed to use the same LGA 2066 socket, with Skylake-X said to include anywhere between six to 10 cores, support quad-channel DDR4 memory and have a metric ton of PCIe 3.0 lanes. Kaby Lake-X parts, meanwhile, are reportedly limited to just four cores, dual-channel memory and just 16 PCIe lanes from the CPU - which gives an impression of a simple, Kaby Lake desktop CPUs being repackaged for the new socket.

https://www.techpowerup.com/232249/sk-hy...nand-flash

Quote:SK Hynix Inc. today introduced the industry's first 72-Layer 256 Gb (Gigabit) 3D (Three-Dimensional) NAND Flash based on its TLC (Triple-Level Cell) arrays and own technologies. The company stacks 1.5 times more cells for the 72-Layer 3D NAND than it does for the 48-Layer 3D which is already in mass production. A single 256Gb NAND Flash chip can represent 32 GB (Gigabytes) storage. SK Hynix launched 36-Layer 128 Gb 3D NAND chips in April 2016, and has been mass producing 48-Layer 256 Gb 3D NAND chips since November 2016. In just 5 months, the company has developed the 72-Layer 256 Gb 3D NAND chips, securing the industry's finest product portfolio.

Needless to say, the SSDs win. But the demonstration does a fantastic job of illustrating the speed of SSDs, and instilling the desire for SSDs.

  The situation in Syria **update** USA launches attack
Posted by: SickBeast - 04-07-2017, 05:28 AM - Forum: News & Politics - Replies (2)

It broke my heart this week reading the news hearing that chemical weapons may have been used on innocent civilians in Syria.  Things seem quite volatile right now.  To make matters worse, things are heating up with North Korea as well.  What do you guys think?  A lot of this seems to be flying under the radar, but we really are at a critical junction in terms of world conflict and world peace.  As much as some people might say about Trump, he is an absolute saint compared to Assad.  It's kind of worrisome.  Trump is right when he says that it's not really the USA's problem and really why should they have to solve it?  It's a huge social justice issue for world to look at right now.  I have to say that I'm personally disgusted by the UN.  Actually I'm starting to think the UN should either be disbanded or reincarnated.  What is the point?  Every time someone wants to get something done, Russia or China just vetoes it.  It's ridiculous.  It's shameful.  I don't know how these people can sleep at night when innocent people in the world are suffering.

I still remember I once gave one day's salary to Amnesty International.  It's one of the best things I have ever done.  And I would do it again.

  Apple Sued By ACCC
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 04-06-2017, 09:32 PM - Forum: Smart Phones - No Replies

https://www.neowin.net/news/apple-sued-b...nd-repairs

Quote:However, that's not the end of the story, at least for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). The competition regulator opened its own investigation after receiving reports relating to 'Error 53' from consumers, many of whom had third-party repairs undertaken on their Apple devices, such as having damaged screens replaced.

The ACCC has now alleged that Apple made false representations to owners of affected Apple products, that free remedy was not available to them on the basis that their devices had been repaired by third-party 'unauthorised repairers".
