first_imgAccording to the Israeli publication Calcalist, Jeff Bezos and his cohorts at Amazon may be planning a bold move to help bolster the company’s future tablet ambitions. Amazon, it’s said, is currently in negotiations to acquire Texas Instruments’ mobile SoC unit.News of the talks comes just shortly after TI announced that it was going to be shifting focus from mobile processors to embedded systems — specifically in-vehicle systems. It’s a segment where Texas Instruments sees a stable, profitable future. The system-on-a-chip business itself, however, it clearly feels is a bit of a risky proposition moving forward.Enter Amazon. The retail giant has leaned on the TI OMAP chip in all of its tablet offerings. The same OMAP 4430 processor that powered the BlackBerry PlayBook was selected for the originally Kindle Fire Best Price at Amazon , and now the 4460 and 4470 are driving the next generation of Fire tablets.Picking up TI’s smartphone and tablet chip division would give Amazon greater control over its own design and manufacturing processes, and could also help reduce expenses. Bezos recently reiterated that the company sells Kindle devices at cost and depends on future Amazon purchases from its tablet users to turn a profit.Some in the industry are speculating that the acquisition could put other manufacturers who currently use TI chips in a tight spot. But if TI thinks it’s time to move on anyway, those OEMs would likely have had to start looking elsewhere — and they already have. Motorola has branched out beyond OMAP, and others could certainly find willing providers in Samsung, Qualcomm, Intel, and Nvidia, too.More at TNWlast_img read more

first_imgTamannaah Bhatia.PR HandoutActress Tamannaah Bhatia has said that she did not have any bitter experience with Bollywood director Sajid Khan, but Vidya Balan is entitled to her opinion if she had a bad experience with him.In an interview, Tamannaah Bhatia spoke about #MeToo movement and harassment charges against Bollywood filmmaker Sajid Khan. They had worked together in Humshakals and Himmatwala. “For me, it has always been about the script and what’s the kind of film that I am working on. When I worked with Sajid, unfortunately, none of our films did well,” Deccan Chronicle quoted the actress as saying.Sajid Khan was one of the Bollywood celebs whose names surfaced in the Me Too movement in September 2018. In a chat show, Vidya Balan had named Sajid Khan as the director that she would never want to work with again.Talking about her comment, Tamannaah Bhatia said, “He never treated me in any bad way and I was completely comfortable working with him. Everyone has a different experience and everybody is entitled to their own opinion and experience. If Vidya has had a bad experience, it’s normal for her to react like that.”Tamannaah Bhatia said that harassment is not just in films, but also in all other fields. She said, “Film industry is not an alien place where one needs to be protected. It’s a very professional environment like every other industry, be it the corporate world or any other industry. The #MeToo movement is not just about the film industry. We got to keep creating the awareness and fear and that’s all we can do.”The Baahubali actress has a no on-screen kissing clause in her contract. She said, “Nobody forces you and in my case, I was very specific when I started my career. I had that clarity. It is my perspective and I stick to that and nobody can force you in the film industry or the worldwide. When people say I was forced to do it, I don’t understand that because you are a mature individual and you can make a choice.”last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … Close The Miami Open has been having its fair share of controversy and it was world number 1 Novak Djokovic who created the most recent storm by threatening to quit the tournament if the umpire did not listen to his wishes. The incident happened during the Serbian’s round of 32 encounter at the Hard Rock Stadium on March 25.Djokovic was playing against Argentine Federico Delbonis and had gone ahead in the third round match with an early break of serve but was pegged back in the ninth game when he lost his cool. After losing serve, Djokovic returned to his court-side seat and lashed out at the umpire in frustration. A heated exchange subsequently followed between the Serb and the umpire as Djokovic threatened to quit the match if the lights of the stadium were not switched on.This is how the heated conversation transpired between the player and the official who was perched on his seat.Umpire: “As soon as you told me I called it.”Djokovic: “Why wasn’t it switched on before.”Umpire: “It wasn’t my decision but I called it.”Djokovic: “Ok so what is it going to be?”Umpire: “It is just the time now to switch it on.”Djokovic: “It is not switching on. I am not going to play in this dark.”The umpire immediately instructed the floodlights to be switched on and in about a couple of minutes, the stadium as well as the situation lightened. Djokovic won the first set of the match but lost the second before clinching the deciding set to win the match and progressing to the round of 16. The Serb won the match 7-5, 4-6, 6-1. Djokovic threatened to quit if the lights were not switched on at the Hard Rock Stadium on March 25.Michael Reaves/Getty ImagesDuring the game, match commentator and tennis expert Mark Petchey had sympathy for world No 1 Djokovic and sided with him.”It is too dark down there now,” he said on Amazon Prime. “I am not sure it is a solvable problem as this tournament moves forward. From early in the day this court is in shade and it has the feel of an indoor tournament which is unfortunate. I am surprised they didn’t have the lights on a bit earlier to be honest. It has not got considerably darker to be fair.”This was the second incident of an umpire-player flare in the space of a week at the Miami Open after Nick Kyrgios hurled expletives at the umpire following his round of 32 doubles defeat on March 24. The Australian lost the match 7-6 (4), 6-7 (3), 10-8 along with his partner Taylor Fritz. Nick Kyrgios had a flare with an umpire in Miami.TIMOTHY A. CLARY/AFP/Getty Images”What the f**k is wrong with you?” Kyrgios yelled at the umpire after the match. “You’re a disgrace. You’re a f*****g disgrace.” Kyrgios then smashed his racquet on the hard court and damaged it. As one of the ball boys picked up the disfigured racquet, the 23-year-old continued his tirade amid a mixture of cheers and boos from the crowd. “You think that’s alright, yes or no? He’s a disgrace. Come down here and play 100 per cent when you deal with this,” Kyrgios said. “It’s rubbish.”center_img Novak Djokovic Wins Mens 2018 Wimbledon Finallast_img read more

PostHoliday Partial Government Shutdown To Gain Impact

first_imgBy DARLENE SUPERVILLE, Associated PressWASHINGTON (AP) — Christmas has come and gone but the partial government shutdown is just getting started.Wednesday brings the first full business day after several government departments and agencies closed up over the weekend due to a budgetary stalemate between President Donald Trump and Congress. And there is no end in sight.The Capitol building is visible as a man who declined to give his name picks up garbage and stacks it near a trash can during a partial government shutdown on the National Mall in Washington, Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2018. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)So far, the public and federal workers have largely been spared inconvenience and hardship because government is closed on weekends and federal employees were excused from work on Christmas Eve and Christmas, a federal holiday. The shutdown began at midnight last Friday.Trump said Tuesday that the closed parts of the government will remain that way until Democrats agree to wall off the U.S.-Mexico border to deter criminal elements. He said he’s open to calling the wall something else as long as he ends up with an actual wall.Asked when the government would reopen fully, Trump said he couldn’t say.“I can’t tell you when the government’s going to be open. I can tell you it’s not going to be open until we have a wall or fence, whatever they’d like to call it,” Trump said, referring to Democrats who staunchly oppose walling off the border.“I’ll call it whatever they want, but it’s all the same thing,” he told reporters after participating in a holiday video conference with representatives from all five branches of the military stationed in Alaska, Bahrain, Guam and Qatar.Trump argued that drug flows and human trafficking can only be stopped by a wall.“We can’t do it without a barrier. We can’t do it without a wall,” he said. “The only way you’re going to do it is to have a physical barrier, meaning a wall. And if you don’t have that then we’re just not opening” the government.Democrats oppose spending money on a wall, preferring instead to pump the dollars into fencing, technology and other means of controlling access to the border. Trump argued that Democrats oppose a wall only because he is for one.The stalemate over how much to spend and how to spend it caused the partial government shutdown that began Saturday following a lapse in funding for departments and agencies that make up about 25 percent of the government.Some 800,000 government workers are affected. Many are on the job but must wait until after the shutdown to be paid again.Trump claimed that many of these workers “have said to me and communicated, ‘stay out until you get the funding for the wall.’ These federal workers want the wall. The only one that doesn’t want the wall are the Democrats.”Trump didn’t say how he’s hearing from federal workers, excluding those he appointed to their jobs or who work with him in the White House. But many rank-and-file workers have gone to social media with stories of the financial hardship they expect to face because of the shutdown.___Associated Press writer Nomaan Merchant in Houston contributed to this report.___Follow Darlene Superville on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/dsupervilleaplast_img read more

first_imgAs of now, there is no word on when or if the rest of Nintendo Power’s magazines will be posted online. Admittedly, the last half of the publication’s backlog isn’t nearly as historically significant as those of the first 13 years, but it would be nice to have the entire run available online for the sake of posterity. <> Update 08/10/16: Nintendo has pulled the archive from the internet. Despite the archive being available for the past five months, Nintendo only took notice of it after it gained popularity last week. Much like with its decision to take down the fan-made Metroid II remake, Nintendo said that it is protecting its characters, trademarks, and other content. While this is certainly within the company’s right, it seems foul to just pull the issues down like this.Original story: Back in the day, gamers relied on video game magazines to keep them up to date with the latest game releases, news, previews, and reviews. Nintendo was the undisputed king of the gaming land in the 80s, and as such, its Nintendo Power magazine was the best out there. This was one of the biggest gaming publications of the time and set the standard for other magazines to follow.As the popularity of gaming magazines began to wane with the advent of the internet, Nintendo Power’s influence and necessity slowly faded. The last issue was released on December 11, 2012, with a cover that was a call back to the very first issue released in July of 1988. There was a lot of history made during the first 13 years of Nintendo Power’s run, and now, thanks to Nintendo Archive, we can all check out some of these classic issues.The archive contains issues 1 to 145. As you can see from the gallery below, the magazine covered the release of classics such as Mega Man II, Super Mario Bros. III, Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country, Mortal Kombat II, Goldeneye, Super Mario 64, and more. Each magazine is full of walkthroughs, cheat codes, previews, and even ads. Anyone who remembers reading Nintendo Power will have a great time going down memory lane looking through these old magazines.last_img read more
