If I had diabeties I don't think I would want a poker playing AI controlling the insulin. What if it decides to go "all in"?
I wonder if they will make the same mistake they did with Windows Phone and not provide any OpenGL ES support
That's not the way it works.
Qualcomm is successful because their modems support *all* telecom protocols, not just LTE. That's know as a "world modem". No other company has that support. So, if they want to sell their phone in a certain market they have to use a Qualcomm modem. If they try to use a Qualcomm modem solution, with a third party SoC the manufacture gets charged a penalty - the same modem is a lot cheaper if you pair it with a Snapdragon SoC. And *that's* how Qualcomm make their money.
Sorry, but you are wrong and so is the article. The main advantage of an integrated modem is power. The modem is basically a processor and if it's on the SoC it can share the memory bus, which reduces power consumption. It also, means less components and cheaper BoM.
Still, I'm disappointed that they could fit "cloud computing" and Node.js into the design. That would be a truely awsome rocket
I wonder, supposing it didn't tip over, how much would it cost to refurbish it for another launch. How many parts would you have to replace?

It's worth pointing out that ninjas aren't subject to the law of gravity

So, what would happen if you looked directly at a 8K monitor? Would your eyes explode?
Most countries allow nuclear power operation with insurance caps. That means in case of an accident the taxpayer foots most of the bill (as in Fukushima).
If you were to include the full cost of insurance nuclear power would be completely unviable.
It seems like the laptop version of G-Sync is using the same protocol as FreeSync (i.e it doesn't require any special hardware).
So, maybe somebody could hack Nvidia's driver to make it compatible with FreeSync monitors?
Less power consumption and better reception:
On top of that they are a node ahead of Intel modems, which still use 28nm.
It's also a possiblity that Intel haven't transitioned to their own fabs because of the cost structure. Remember Intel's fabs have always been designed for the manufacture of high margin CPU's, where performance is more important than cost. Low margin mobile products require a different philosophy and TSMC fabs are better suited for low cost manufacture.
It's possible, but not in any of Intel's Fabs.
The huge price Intel charge for their foundry services eliminates any chance that Apple would ever manufacture their SoCs there.
