The next iPhone may contain a few components sourced from Intel, replacing some components traditionally sourced from Qualcomm, according to a report. The chip producer is allegedly working on producing a version of its 7360 LTE modem specifically for use in next year's iPhone refresh, with the view to producing both the modem and a new Apple System on Chip (SoC) if Apple approves of Intel's communications chip work.
From rumor to fact in 48 hours. The big PC powerhouses Microsoft, Dell, Intel, Lenovo, and HP have launched a new program, reminding web surfers and cable watchers about all the things that computers can do. We have two difficulties about criticizing the new "PC Does What" ad campaign: where to begin and how long have you got? There is not one single chance that you saw this and didn't wonder how in the world it ever came into anyone's head, let alone the world.
In an unprecedented technology company collaboration, computing magnates Dell, HP, Intel, Lenovo, and Microsoft are teaming up in an advertising campaign to boost the flagging PC industry. The slogan for the advertising effort, said to be "PC Does What" could be announced as early as Thursday, according to sources familiar with the matter.
Intel Corporation yesterday reported third-quarter revenue of $14.5 billion, operating income of $4.2 billion, net income of $3.1 billion and earnings per share of 64 cents. The company generated approximately $5.7 billion in cash from operations, paid dividends of $1.1 billion, and used $1.0 billion to repurchase 36 million shares of stock. While the company met its own quarterly predictions, the 6.3 percent drop in income from a 19 percent drop in processor shipment volumes from the third quarter fell short of analysts' expectations.
A settlement proposal by major tech companies to end a multi-year lawsuit over anti-poaching policies has been accepted on the second attempt. US District Court Judge Lucy Koh has approved the settlement, proposed in January by co-defendants Apple, Google, Intel, and Adobe, with the joint settlement figure of $415 million being a significant increase from the settlement figure of $324.5 million originally proposed by the companies.
Intel has finally confirmed its entire lineup of Skylake processors, produced using a 14nm process, at its IFA keynote address in Germany this morning. The sixth generation of Intel Core processors detailed today consists of 48 new processors, including 20 destined for use in desktop systems and servers and 26 designed for notebooks and tablets, one of which is an unlocked mobile processor meant for enthusiast notebooks.
Seven leading Internet companies today announced formation of the Alliance for Open Media -- an open-source project that will develop next-generation media formats, codecs and technologies in the public interest.

Intel has revealed more details about the capabilities of its upcoming Skylake processor line, though stopped short of giving specific information for processors it will be releasing in the future. Explained to developers and hardware vendors at the Intel Developer Forum, Skylake will feature not only performance and power management improvements, but also bring in extra features, such as enabling a notebook to be woken by a verbal command.
Intel's upcoming Skylake-U series of processors will be much more streamlined compared to its Broadwell-U chip line, if a leak is confirmed as genuine. A selection of leaked slides suggests Intel with be bringing out just eight dual-core processors, including two Core i7 chips, two Core i5, one Core i3, one Pentium, and two Celerons, with all having an identical thermal design power (TDP) of 15W.
Intel quietly debuted mobile Xeon processors based on the Skylake platform yesterday, saying little more than the chip line will be bringing ECC memory to mobile, and that more information would be coming soon. The E3-1500M processors were detailed slightly more overnight in a pair of Lenovo ThinkPads released at the SIGGRAPH show. Lets take a look at what we know about the processor, and what we don't, and evaluate the Lenovo offering and see what we can glean about the processor's inclusion in a future MacBook Pro.
