In a document published by AMD some new information surfaced. It seems that AMD is working on a new 16-core processor, and that is a true 16 cores, thus not 8 cores and 4 GPU cores or anything. And no it is not eh existing AMD Opteron 6200 Series. This is something new. Obviously such processor would see a launch in the server segment first hence we think the processor will be an Opteron. The developer documents list the 16-core unit under Family 15h Models 30h – 3fh.
This 16-core processor will have a full uncore, which is terminology for the functions of a microprocessor that are not in the Core like QPI controllers, L3 cache, on-die memory controller and so on. The PCI Express and SPI are typically merged into the the chipset, not the Uncore.
In what seems to be the biggest news early this year in smart home technology, Google is set to acquire Nest Labs with a hefty price of $3.2 billion. The search giant paid cash and with CEO Larry Page excitedly welcoming Nest founders to Google.
Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers must be very happy with the acquisition. Thats a lot of money and no doubt that Google will be able to do more for Nest. With this development, we can expect smart home tech to become even bigger this year.
The Nest Learning Thermostat is a winner. It has also released a new product called Protect Smoke + CO Alarm. These products are now available should you want to go all geeky and digital at home.
Tony Fadell will still be leading Nest. The latter will still be its own brand but only now owned by the Mountain View company. Google has not finalized the deal yet but will be closing it before January ends.

You can’t really complain of lack of recent activity on Google’s part in the hardware co-manufacturing department, as the spectacular LG-made Nexus 5 has seen daylight roughly two months ago. Still, the Nexus family was always expected to get two reinforcements this past fall, not just one.
So what ever happened with the oft-rumored second-generation Nexus 10? Was it not in the works to begin with? Did Big G pull the plug on account of disheartening first-gen sales? Bottom line, was it delayed or canceled?
No way to know for sure just yet, but if we are to believe Taiwanese online publication Digitimes, the N10-2 is very much real and landing as soon as next week. Next week? You mean during CES 2014 in Las Vegas? We wish, but there’s no way.
“No way” are strong words, however I challenge y’all to recall a high-profile product announcement made by Google at a shared tech event of this kind. Anything comes to mind? Anything at all? Exactly.
Besides, Samsung, which Digitimes claims helped Google with the upgraded N10, has also exhibited a frosty attitude towards CES in recent history, so again, no way this is accurate. On the othe

Yahoo.com visitors over the last few days may have been served with malware via the Yahoo ad network, according to a security firm in the Netherlands. Users clicking on some of the ads were redirected to sites armed with code that exploits vulnerabilities in Java and installs a variety of different malware.
In a blog post, Fox IT estimated that, based on sample traffic, the number of visits to the site carrying the malicious code was visited around 300,000 times per hour.
“Given a typical infection rate of 9% this would result in around 27,000 infections every hour. Based on the same sample, the countries most affected by the exploit kit are Romania, Britain, and France. At this time it’s unclear why those countries are most affected, it is likely due to the configuration of the malicious advertisements on Yahoo,” Fox IT said on its blog.
The security firm found evidence that the redirects go to domains hosted in the Netherlands, but was unable to identity the perpetrators. Traffic has slowed to the exploit, Fox IT noted, suggesting that Yahoo is addressing the vulnerability.
Yahoo confirmed the presence of malware on its servers and said it had taken steps to combat the issue.

Ford has confirmed it will use the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to unveil an innovative new concept car that promises to use its own rooftop solar panel to power the vehicle.
A number of manufacturers have sought to integrate solar cells into car chassis in the past to run the vehicles’ electronics, but Ford claims to have delivered a “first-of-its-kind” hybrid that uses solar power to drive the motor.
Dubbed the C-MAX Solar Energi Concept, Ford said the solar PV panel on the roof used a specially designed concentrating lens to ensure that a day’s worth of sunlight can deliver the same performance as the conventional C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid, which draws its power from the electric grid.
Plug-in hybrids use a battery to power the vehicle for short journeys, before automatically switching to a petrol or diesel engine for longer journeys. However, Ford maintains that by powering the battery using solar power the vehicle can cut both carbon emissions and running costs further still.
“Ford C-MAX Energi gets a combined best miles per gallon equivalent in its class, with EPA-estimated 108 MPGe city and 92 MPGe highway, for a combined 100 MPGe,” the company said in a statement.
