    Article: Apple Makes More on iPhone Than Samsung on Everything-globalfoundries-umc.jpg

    One of the interesting rumors in Taiwan last week was the possibility that UMC and GF will do a deal to merge or UMC will buy some GF fabs.

    Article: FD-SOI is Worth More Than Two Cores-john-mcafee.jpg

    Those who think that that technology can be made ‘unhackable’, don't comprehend the overall challenges and likely don't understand what 'hacked' means.

    Trust is the currency of security. We all want our technology to be dependable, easy to use, and secure. It is important to understand
