Intel Corporation Research Report

Intel has announced it will be buying the core service of HTML5 mobile-app development firm appMobi, but only its tools and related staff and not the entire startup itself. The move is part of the semiconductor giant's bid to enter the mobile application developer tools market. Meanwhile appMobi will become a pure play cloud services provider, offering developers backend services support for HTML5 mobile applications instead. The HTML5 tools Intel acquired include the jqMobi framework, which connects mobile app developers with a mobile-ready version of JQuery, as well as other appMobi frameworks XDK IDE, GameDev XDK, PhoneGap XDK and jqUI. Also included are the directCanvas HTML5 acceleration tool and the Mobius web browser. According to ReadWrite, developers currently using the tools will not be affected by the move to Intel save for a one-time re-registration to Intel's systems. The tools will continue to be free to use with Intel.

Nvidia has found its biggest customer to date with its recently announced Tegra 4 chips, Chinese handset and equipment manufacturer ZTE, who will be making a smartphone using the new processor and another phone using the company's i500 LTE modem.

The processing power of the higher-end Tegra 4 and the lower-cost Tegra 4i both supports full HD video playback on a 5-inch screen, in a smaller 28 nanometer process node which consumes less power. Meanwhile, Nvidia met expectations on revenues and beat expectations on earnings per share in its Q4 financial report released last week, and forecast optimistic numbers in the wake of the new chips. It reported revenue of $1.11 billion while earnings per share were at 35 cents. Analysts expected revenues at $1.10 billion while earnings per share of 29 cents.

QUALCOMM Incorporated Research Report

Qualcomm released a new range of radio phone chips for mobile cellular networks this week, increasing competition for other players in the segment. The chips, called RF360, will be addressing the headache of smartphone manufacturers that is band fragmentation, enabling smartphones to connect to all seven of the world's cellular modes: LTE-FDD, LTE-TDD, WCDMA, EV-DO, CDMA 1x, TD-SCDMA and GSM/EDGE. It also translates to improved radio performance and coverage, and possibly fewer voice dropouts and lost calls. In addition, the need for smartphone manufacturers to produce multiple versions of their smartphones to support multiple carrier frequencies will be eliminated, potentially cutting costs and logistics and increasing margins.  The Full Research Report on QUALCOMM Incorporated - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at: [http://www.investors-alliance.com/r/full_research_report/f231_QCOM]

Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
