Arm chief hits out at 'ill-informed speculation' over proposed Nvidia buyout

ToddRundgrensUtopia

Because ARM bigest customers are all direct competitors of nVIDIA, NXP, Samsung, Qulacomm, Renesas, TI, etc etc

It was on Whitman’s watch that the company made one of the worst tech acquisitions of all time, buying software maker Autonomy for $11bn.

No it wasn't it was under Apotheker. Shite journalism

Hey, Boeing. Don't celebrate your first post-grounding 737 Max test flight too hard. You just lost another big contract

ToddRundgrensUtopia

Re: Boeing in a serious bind?

We are talking about commercial and you are talking about defence kit. Very different beasts.

ToddRundgrensUtopia

I just don't want to fly on one, period! Boeing do not deserve to be in business for this mass killing

Guess what's heading to trial? IBM and its tactic of yoinking promised commissions after sales reps seal the deal

Re: Ah sales....

You can always change your contract to a performance one, that means you have a chance of losing your job if you have a poor quarter? Nah thought not

Re: Crapita

It's not the MPs it's always in the hands of the shit thick civil servants, who see nothing wrong with scrapping and starting again, no matter ho much progress has been made. Otherwise it could be Priti's fault I suppose.

AMD really, really wants you to know its chips are doing OK without any help from Intel and its supply issues

Government/the Civil Service are crap at doing stuff

Governments have to do some stuff, e.g. defence, so buying Chinooks for Afghanistan that could operate in a desert is the price you pay

Government should leave well alone, apart from defence. I used to included education, but the LEAs were poor and we now have a tertiary education system where everyone of the so called Universities charges £9.5K p/annum for often rubbish course, oh and manage to pay the VC 1/4-1/5Mill per annum

Gov leave stuff well alone, please??????

SPARCs fly as Oracle recharges Arm server processor designer Ampere with $40m

ToddRundgrensUtopia

Larry must be offering it then as he likes throwing money away!

ToddRundgrensUtopia

Re: Ampere forever tainted?

Silly statement

ToddRundgrensUtopia

No need just use Linux. Oracle has a huge linux support business already

ToddRundgrensUtopia

PCIe fabric

Ampere is an interesting firm, as well as using ARM based CPUs they are using PCIe as a fabric/interconnect too. Much lower latency than Ethernet or Infiniband.

Autonomy trial judge gets SaaSy with HPE's lawyer over vital accounts fraud claim

ToddRundgrensUtopia

Why would HPE sue Autonomy and not also sue the accountants

Because once Apotheker had been removed they had no one who understood software. Both HP's and IBMs record at acquiring SW firms and them not growing them is appalling.

It doesn't change whether Lynch and Sushovan were guilty or not, it just feels like, " hey we made a huge mistake, so lets find someone else to blame".
