Submission + - Latest Intel chips will not *only* run on Win 10 but ALSO on older versions (channelregister.co.uk)

lord_rob the only on writes: The latest Intel and AMD chipsets are of course also compatible with Linux, BSD and OSX.
Concerning older versions of Windows though, It's easy to misread that Windows versions before Windows 10 won't be compatible with this chipset. Maybe Microsoft made that on purpose.
The thing is: PC with latest Intel chipset must run at least Windows 10 to get support.

Submission + - Samsung to sue Apple over 4G LTE in iPhone 5 (zdnet.com)

lord_rob the only on writes: "Another step in the Apple vs Samsung's patent war. But this time it's Samsung that attacks Apple. It seems that Samsung owns a patent on the 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology. They suppose the iPhone 5 will use that technology (could iPhone 5 stay in old 3G like its predecessor ?). If Samsung are right, the iPhone 5 could not go further than Apple's factories, unless an agreement is found between Apple and Samsung."
