    More than 40 years after founding Apple Computer, Steve Wozniak has a lot to say about the early days of the world's richest company -- and about technology, learning, and being a born engineer. On stage at the IEEE TechIgnite conference in Burlingame, California, on Wednesday, he gave a glimpse into how a tech legend thinks.On open source In the early Seventies, Wozniak read about phone phreaking, in which "phreakers" made free phone calls by using electronics to mimic the tones used for dialing each number. To learn how to do it, he went to the only place he knew that had books and magazines about computers: The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. He went on a Sunday and walked right in.

  3. How enthusiasts designed a powerful desktop PC with an ARM processorWed, 22 Mar 2017 15:42:00 -0700
    When he was growing up, a dream of Linux pioneer Linus Torvalds was to acquire the Acorn Archimedes, a groundbreaking personal computer with the first ARM RISC chips.But in 1987, Archimedes wasnt available to Torvalds in Finland, so he settled for the Sinclair QL. In the meanwhile, the Archimedes failed and disappeared from the scene, killing any chance for ARM chips to dominate PCs.Since then, multiple attempts to put ARM chips in PCs have failed. Outside of a few Chromebooks, most PCs have x86 chips from Intel or AMD.The domination of x86 is a problem for Linaro, an industry organization that advocates ARM hardware and software. Many of its developers use x86 PCs to compile programs for ARM hardware. Thats much like trying to write Windows programs on a Mac.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  6. Obduction's new VR hand-tracking makes Myst's spiritual successor even more stunningWed, 22 Mar 2017 13:13:00 -0700
    Time to replay Obduction, I guess. This morning Cyan announced that Vive and Oculus Touch support has been added into the game, allowing you to explore Hunrath, Kaptar, and the rest of its spacefaring Myst successor with full hand-tracking support. Pull levers, press buttons, move around, explore. I just spent half an hour doing just that with the Vive, and its stunning. As I wrote about during Obduction's original Oculus release last year, Obduction in VR gives you a whole different sense of scale. That iconic little white house with its picket fence? Its not so little once you have the headset on. Ditto for the towering cliffs of Kaptar, stretching down into a cloud-filled void. Its enough to give you vertigo.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

Thanks to better app review systems, the company is detecting and cracking down on more malware.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  10. Vodafone prepares an LTE moon shot, quite literallyWed, 22 Mar 2017 10:47:00 -0700
    Thanks to Vodafone, the Taurus-Littrow Valley will get its first mobile phone base station next year. It hasn't needed one up to now, as the last visitors drove through in 1972, the year before the mobile phone was invented. Next year, though, it will get the very latest in 4G LTE coverage, when it receives a visit from two very special self-driving vehicles. Taurus-Littrow is the landing site of Apollo 17, where humans last walked on the moon. Next year, an international group based in Berlin plans to send a mission carrying two lunar rovers to explore the site. The group, Part Time Scientists, has been working on the project for longer than eight yearsand already has sponsorship and support from auto manufacturer Audi to develop the rovers.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
