Daily Tech News Got Eaten By A Bear

Top Story

  • Got delayed by network problems at work, so I'll keep this short and then maybe add some stuff later.

    Update: Network is back up.

    Update 2: Network is suffering 97% packet loss and 340ms ping times.

    Update 3: Network is down.

    Update 4: Network still down. Wait, up, no, down, updown, downup... Up!

  • Intel has made a $2 billion offer to buy embedded processor startup SiFive. (Tom's Hardware)

    The whole attraction of SiFive is that their instruction set is an open specification, so anyone can implement it themselves if they want. Most companies wouldn't want all that work and would rather license a design or buy an existing chip, but you can.

    Intel is pretty much guaranteed to fuck things up. It's not in their DNA to be open.

Anime of the day is Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. It has giant robots throwing things at each other. It's good.
