Chrome OS: Subscriptions for computers?

Chrome OS, the operating system from Google, is eagerly awaited. And the company could offer innovative billing: with a subscription. Google's plans have always said that Chrome OS was very tied to hardware, with atypical solutions, including the requirement to use an SSD in netbooks under this system.

At first glance, Chrome OS should not even be offered alone, it will be mandatory to get a computer OS for Chrome enjoy. And Google could offer an innovative system for machinery Chrome OS: a subscription. The latter, whose price would be between 10 and $ 20 per month, would include the rental of the machine and the update of the OS and maybe - as with Cr48 - a 3G subscription base, 200 MB per example.

The iPhone already in circulation 4S

A year ago, almost to the day, Gizmodo published his biggest scoop: photos of an iPhone 4 "found in a bar." Today, everyone expects the iPhone 5, but some developers have already received the "iPhone 4S", bearing the A5 processor iPad 2. These privileged would be major game publishers on the iPhone (thought to EA for example).

Their prototypes would enable them to maximize their next game on the future iPhone, whose performance graphs should be a major selling points. Let us recall that the A5 has not only a CPU dual-core ARM Cortex A9 while the A4 is a single-core Cortex A8, but it also embeds a GPU (PowerVR SGX 543 MP2) theoretical power of a 9 times greater than that of the A4.

Scythe: a cooler of 1.6 kg with 4 Ventilos

The manufacturer Scythe has announced the launch of a new model of cooling system for CPUs, Susanoo. Compatible with the CPU on socket AM2 and LGA 775/115x/1366 / 3, this cooler is rather large, with dimensions of 210 x 210 x 160 mm. It is also relatively heavy since it reached 1565 grams on the scale.

Composed of a radiator through which 12 copper heat pipes, four 100 mm fans (running at a speed between 500 and 2000 revolutions per minute) and a copper base is also topped with a little extra heat sink, the Susanoo should not be difficult to dissipate heat generated by any CPU. Note finally announced maximum noise 37.69 dB (A).

Cortex A15 confirmed in 2012: 4 cores, 2.5 GHz

MRA confirms its next core release in 2012. Currently, two ARM cores share the market: the Cortex A8 and Cortex A9. The first has only one core in-order type, and it is gradually becoming a smart entry. The second usually has two cores (soon four) and proposes a treatment out-of-order, more efficient.

Cortex A15 - who must fight against the changes Snapdragon (krait), and can be the first core CPU NVIDIA - will have one to sixteen cores, will obviously out-of-order and will offer two interesting innovations. The first is the hardware support of virtualization, such as x86 lately, with the ability to quickly move from one context to another (and therefore a virtual machine to another).
