The fact that the announced program targets Japan (Softbank Telecom) ...

2012 - The End of Mobile as We Know It

ARM Cortex-A7 and OKL4 - Intrigue on the Waterfront

Seriously, I was walking along the wharf in San Francisco when the camera crew arrived to pose a few questions about OKL4 and the new ARM Cortex-A7 MPCore processor. I was happy to oblige.

Great story. Two processors working together so that a device can select the right processor for the right task. If more power is ...

Hey VMware: Secure It Ain’t!


At last week's VMworld, VMware presented, once more, their Mobile Virtualization Platform (MVP), now called Horizon Mobile. Besides the usual hype, there were a few things that I found somewhat annoying.
