    Article: The Linley Microprocessor Conference: Weather Cloudy-tesla-autonomous-cars.jpg

    Steve Jobs wanted to build an electric car as far back as 2008. In 2014, Tim Cook reportedly funded the project. To date, though, Apple has had little to show for it, and the rumors are that its electric vehicle will launch as late as 2025 — long after such things become common commodities. Google has already ...

    It’s the summer of 2018, the summer of Fortnite, and we all know we are addicted. Addicted to email, Snapchat, Instagram, Fortnite, Facebook. We swap outdoor time on the trail for indoor time around the console. Our kids log into Snapchat every day on vacation to keep their streaks alive and then get lost in the stream.

    We move less and watch more. In particular,

    Which way the semiconductor industry is going?-silicon-valley-innovation.jpg

    Silicon Valley well exemplifies the saying “The more things change, the more they stay the same”. Very little has changed over the past decade, with the Valley still mired in myth and stale stereotype. Ask any older entrepreneurs or women who have tried to get financing; they will tell you of the walls they keep hitting. Speak to VCs, and you will realize that they still consider themselves kings and kingmakers.

    With China’s innovation ...
