Acer announces the Switch Alpha 12, world’s first liquid-cooled 2-in-1 laptop

Technology
Everyone is trying to banish the whirring fans from laptops and 2-in-1 hybrid computers these days, but that often means using a low-power chip like the Intel Core M. Acer has just announced the Switch Alpha 12, a new silent hybrid laptop that skips the modest, cooler chips and goes right for a 6th Generation Intel Core CPU (Skylake). Instead of noisy fans, this laptop uses a liquid-cooling system, a first for 2-in-1 hybrid laptops. This isn’t the first time a liquid-cooled laptop has existed. Asus released a monstrous gaming laptop last year called the GX700, but it was only liquid-cooled when plugged into a giant desktop radiator attachment. It was a niche product that even gamers had little interest in. The Switch Alpha 12 is entirely self-contained, making it a much more desirable m

Bristol Palin announces birth of second child Sailor Grace

Bristol Palin announces birth of second child Sailor Grace

Gossip
bsmp2/via Instagram Bristol Palin, 25, posted photos on Instagram Thursday with her newborn baby girl Sailor Grace. Pro-life activist Bristol Palin, daughter of conservative commentator Sarah Palin, gave birth to a girl named Sailor Grace, seven months after Palin's wedding was called off, Palin said Thursday. The 25-year-old and her ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer — who was long thought to be the baby’s father — announced the Wednesday birth in Instagram posts. The flak surrounding Bristol Palin’s second out-of-wedlock child didn’t show up in the adorable photos of the baby and Palin's other child, 7-year-old son Tripp. “My sweet Sailor Grace was born yesterday, our family couldn't be more complete,” Palin wrote on Instagram. “My heart just doubled.” Meyer, a war hero who won the Medal of Honor fo
The FAA announces drone registration requirements, waives registration fee

The FAA announces drone registration requirements, waives registration fee

Technology
Share This article For months, the drone industry has been waiting to see what the FAA’s registration requirements for unmanned aircraft (UAS, or what we typically call “drones”) would be, as well as how much they’d cost. The FAA has finally released its drone registration plan, and the organization appears to have taken several steps to ensure registration is relatively easy and painless. The penalty for not registering, on the other hand, is anything but. First, the ground rules. All owners of drones weighing more than 0.55 lbs when fully loaded must register the device with the FAA. Those who purchased a drone prior to December 21, 2015 must register by February 19, 2016, even if the drone has previously flown while unregistered. Anyone who buys a drone after December 21 must regis
ARM announces new Cortex-A35: ultra-low power, 64-bit

ARM announces new Cortex-A35: ultra-low power, 64-bit

Technology
Share This article Over the past 18 months, we’ve seen consumer tablets and smartphones mostly jump from 32-bit ARM cores (the Cortex-A9 and A15) to their 64-bit counterparts (Cortex-A53 and A57). At the lower-end of the market, however, 32-bit continued to rule the roost. While ARM billed the Cortex-A53 as a replacement for the Cortex-A7 initially, tests showed that the A53’s power curve was high enough that it wasn’t a drop-in replacement for the 32-bit chip. Now, ARM has announced a new 64-bit processor that does replace the Cortex-A7, while simultaneously improving performance and flexibility. The new Cortex-A35 is designed as a successor to the Cortex-A5 and A7, but presumably tilts towards the A7’s power efficiency and performance ratio rather than the minimalist Cortex-A5. A5 c

AMD announces fresh losses, pivots towards new licensing strategies

Share This article AMD announced its quarterly results for Q3 2015 yesterday, and the short-term news wasn’t good. While company revenue rose by 12% compared to Q2 2015, total Q3 sales were down 25% year-on-year. AMD reported that demand for both its semi-custom and PC hardware increased in Q3 thanks to Carrizo’s ramp and the approaching Christmas holiday. AMD announced several new projects to hopefully boost its revenue in 2016 and beyond, including the sale of its assembly, test, mark, and pack facilities to a new joint venture with Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics (NFME). As part of this deal, AMD will transfer 1700 employees to the new company, contribute its facilities in Penang, Malaysia, and Suzhou, and sell 85% of its share in these facilities and operations to NFME. AMD will
