Comment This is not gonna happen. (Score 1) 108

I think it won't happen as the article describes.

TI "spin off" the OMAP and make the Sitara and the DaVinci families ("almost" same features as OMAP) that are used by several "non-mobile" applications. Many people depend on those and I am sure that they need to keep producing and developing for many more years.

Also, OMAP is a SoC that has TI proprietary devices used by other markets, like for example the DSP, and I am sure they are not selling those either.

I think the best deal for Amazon would be to make a partnership and design an exclusive "custom" OMAP (please rename) for their needs and don't sell /that/ to B&N.

Comment Re:Can't get good sound on RPi. Power problems. (Score 1) 202

Forget about buck boost regulators on the rpi. that would increase the cost in 2 to 4 dollars, they should require you to use a regulated +5 VDC power supply that gives *at least* 1A and just wire it up to the USB port. or anything else.

If they don't want to require the use of a regulated power supply, they should just drop in an inexpensive 7805 LDO.

Submission + - Hack Exposes Pirate Bay User Data (krebsonsecurity.com)

tsu doh nimh writes: Hackers from Argentina recently broke into the database for thepiratebay.org, the Internet's largest torrent search engine, exposing user names, Internet addresses, and (MD5) hashed password data on more than 4 million users, according to Brian Krebs. He interviewed the leader of the group, which is also marketing a new browser exploit kit called "Impassioned Framework," as saying they briefly considered what the information would be worth to the RIAA and MPAA, before going public with the breach. From the story: "Probably these groups would be very interested in this information, but we are not [trying] to sell it,” Russo told KrebsOnSecurity.com in a phone interview. “Instead we wanted to tell people that their information may not be so well protected.”

Submission + - Japanese Researchers Create See-Through Goldfish (dailytech.com)

ultranerdz writes: South Korean scientists may have created a glowing cat, but Japanese researchers have successfully developed a transparent goldfish.
The clear goldfish allows observers to see the tiny fish's beating heart, which allows scientists to observe living creatures and reduces the numbers of dissections. I wonder when they will start to make transparent humans.
