He's bringin it up because there's nothing about absoulte speed here. Samsung is saying they made their processor faster by a larger margin than qualcom did this year but they are not saying it's faster than qualcoms. they did the same thing with the A10. samsung claimed a faster clock speed and big improvements in battery usage. Meanwhile the slower clock spees A10 is actually faster to do anything, and uses less battery.

his point is samsung spec are completely non-informative.

So were down to comparing rates of improvements? How does one compare two brands when one of them got 25% faster than it's last chip and the other got 40% faster. Does that mean the latter was abysmally slow to begin with so it was easier to make faster. There's no information content here.

it's also not news.

A newsworthy headline would be samsung latest processor is slower and uses more battery. I full expect every generation to be better than the last but if you can't actually make useful comparisons there's nothing newsworthy here.

thanks for posting a press release.

What kind of "unusual" things would an app ask you to do? Drink 8 glasses of water a day? Get 10,000 steps? Move at least once an hour? I haven't seen anything that would be dangerous unless you're seriously out of shape or suffer from some extreme affliction. Considering how lawsuit happy people are, I doubt any of these apps are recommending anything dangerous to 99.99999% of the public.

GlobalSign Supports Billions of Device Identities In an Effort To Secure the IoT (globalsign.com) 27

Reader broknstrngz writes: GlobalSign, a WebTrust certified CA and identity services provider, has released its high volume managed PKI platform, taking a stab at the current authentication and security weaknesses in the IoT. The new service aims to commodify large scale rapid enrollment and identity management for large federated swarms of devices such as IP cameras, smart home appliances and consumer electronics, core and customer premises network equipment in an attempt to reduce the attack surface exploitable by IoT DDoS botnets such as Mirai.

Strong device identity models are developed in partnership with TPM and hardware cryptographic providers such as Infineon and Intrinsic ID, as well as other Trusted Computing Group members.

I'm expecting that whoever does this investigation is going to act in the shareholders' best interest, which among other things means not exposing the company to massive liabilities in court. If the investigation supports the allegations, then those responsible are going to get canned.
