Here demonstrated in a nice Corvette, you can do a bunch of interactive things with these new ARM Cortex-A8 Freescale i.MX51 powered digital information clusters and infotainment systems that are coming in different configurations to more and more cars soon.
I’m looking forward to going to the LeWeb conference on December 8th and 9th in Paris. Especially for the opportunity to meet some of the most influential people in the tech industry. At the last couple years of LeWeb, I was lucky to meet and video interview cool people like Kevin Marks (ex-Googler now at British Telecom), Martin Varsavsky (founder of FON), Chris Pirillo, Robert Scoble, Michael Arrington (founder of Techcrunch) and Marc Canter.
Most of these influential people of the US and EU tech blogosphere and tech industry will be there again, as well as Shai Agassi (founder of revolutionizing electric car Project Better Place), Matt Mullenweg (founder of WordPress), Leo Laporte (founder of worlds most influential tech podcast This Week In Tech), Gabe Rivera (founder of one the most influential tech sites Techmeme.com), Ryan Block (one of the founders of Engadget), Veronica Belmont, MG Siegler (top Apple fanboy on Techcrunch), David Hornik and many more people that you can find on the participants list.
A lot of Googlers attend the event as it’s partly sponsored by Google and there will be a full day of Google workshops on December 8th: http://www.leweb.net/agenda/2010/workshops. By the time LeWeb starts, I expect we might have seen more official announcements about Gingerbread, Chrome OS, Google Me, Nexus S and more, that these Google workshops should be absolutely fascinating! And if you have any questions to Google people, this is the opportunity to ask them! Marissa Mayer will do her Fireside chat with Michael Arrington as she does each year. Salim Ismail Executive Director of the Google-funded Singularity University will do a talk. Chang Kim is Google product manager on Blogging products will be there too.
Top people from Microsoft, Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo will also be there if you want to talk to them or watch their keynotes.
Look forward to my extensive video coverage from this event. I will try to video interview all the people I just mentioned and many more. Cool product demonstrations happen there as well, people showing off gadgets and websites at the exhibition area so I will video-blog those on here: http://armdevices.net/category/tradeshows/leweb/
That’s what a conference is for. Meeting people. So if you are in the Europe area and you want a chance to meet those people you should register.
Gary Smith talks about ARM and Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and where the industry is heading as processors keep getting more and more complicated, smaller and smaller, more and more costly to develop while prices of ARM Powered devices keep getting lower and lower. Gary Smith is the founder and Chief Analyst for Gary Smith EDA. Previously, he was the Managing Vice President and Chief Analyst of the Electronic Design Automation Service, Design & Engineering Cluster at Gartner Dataquest.
Interview with Jem Davies and Ian Smythe on the ARM Mali-T604, the next generation graphics processor. Look forward to some insanely powerful graphics processors with the ARM Cortex-A15 processors that will start to be designed next year and available in consumer products the year after that.
ARM engineer David Gilday does this just as his hobby. Completely awesome.
It is released now, available for $174 to developers at http://pandaboard.org deliveries starting at the end of this month.
While the games that will be optimized for the faster graphics processing of Mali-400 will look even better, it’s still cool to see some 3D stuff running on this upcoming Samsung Orion ARM Cortex-A9 processor platform.
Beijing based Nufront is presenting their ARM Cortex-A9 processor which they plan to launch in commercial ARM Powered desktop and laptop solutions soon. Here are some demonstrations of it powering an Ubuntu 10.10 desktop and a Quake 3 game.
Here’s a demonstration showing that the second core in ARM Cortex-A9 processors allow for at least 50% performance improvement for such applications as the web browser in Android.
This is a Cache Coherent Computer subsystem. Allows to deliver a whole bunch of new use cases, two Quad Cortex-A15 clusters can be fully I/O coherent with the MAli-T604 graphics.
