AMD shows off Carrizo, declares it on time and coming in first half of 2015

When rumors surfaced several weeks ago claiming that AMD would launch Carrizo late this year, we attempted to deflate them with minimal success. Now, AMD’s John Byrne has taken to YouTube to demonstrate the new Carrizo APU and to confirm that both Carrizo and Carrizo-L won’t ship until the first half of 2015 — in line with original expectations.

More important than the shipping date is what Byrne had to say about the final product. According to him, Carrizo is the greatest single leap forward in performance per watt that AMD has ever launched, with an all-new graphics core and the aforementioned Excavator APU.

World’s largest lithium-ion battery to be built in Southern California, dwarfs previous installations

Battery power developer AES Southland has announced a contract with Southern California Edison to deliver a 400MW lithium ion battery-based energy storage facility that will be capable of providing 100MW of power for a total of four hours. For comparison, when the State Grid Corporation of China teamed up with electric car manufacturer BYD to build the largest battery in the world, the stated capacity was 36MWh — less than 1/10 the size of the SCE facility.

That gap is so large it seems ridiculous, yet all available data points to this new facility as one of the largest, if not the largest lithium-ion battery storage facilities in the entire world.

Americans Doubt They Can Protect Their Privacy

A Pew Research Center study finds broad concern about government and corporate data gathering, along with a desire for more government regulation of data gathering.

Americans are concerned about their privacy and would like to do more to protect their privacy, but doubt their ability to do so, according to a Pew Research Center study.

The Pew Research Center Internet Project on Wednesday published findings about Americans’ attitudes toward privacy following former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s revelations about government access to phone records and online communication.

Traditional crime ‘is coming to cyberspace’

Cybercrime has historically focused on causing disruption in cyberspace, but Eugene Kaspersky, founder of Kaspersky Lab, tells Sophie Curtis that traditional ‘real world‘ criminals are also moving online.

The distinction between real-world crime and cybercrime is becoming increasingly blurred. In the past, thieves, robbers and fraudsters would rely on knives and guns to get the job done; today they are more likely to use phishing scams, denial-of-service attacks and trojans.

Traditionally, the purpose of these cyber attacks has been either to steal data, which can be sold on the dark web for financial gain, to steal money directly, or to sabotage the computer systems of a company or organisation in the pursuit of some political, social or moral cause.

However, a new and far more dangerous type of cybercrime is emerging — the use of carefully targeted malware to support traditional crime.
