Latest ARM Server solutions booths tour

Posted by – December 30, 2013

Showing off the latest Applied Micro 64bit X-Gene ARM Server Development Board (which Rob Savoye of Linaro eagerly wants to start playing with), Dell’s 64bit ARM Server solution running Fedora 19, working on a proof of concept for early 2014 for Dell’s key cloud server customers (Google? Amazon?) before going into mass production (Dell already did some 32bit ARM Server tests in Europe with some customers), some things like Oracle JDK still has to fully come over (needs some tuning) to the platform. This is just me walking kind of randomly around some of the ARM Server demo area at the ARM Techcon. Then checking out the HP ARM Server booth, showing off some of the latest HP Moonshot ARM Server solutions also talked about in HP’s Keynote at ARM Techcon, watch the official video of that keynote or my version (sitting on the front row).

James Bruce, ARM Director of Mobile Strategy, talks Next Generation Smartphones

Posted by – December 29, 2013

James Bruce talks newly announced ARM Mali-T720 for Entry-level and new ARM Mali-T760 for High-end devices. ARM Mali-T720 brings GPU Compute OpenGL ES 3.0 to the entry level smartphone in the next 18-24 months. AmLogic now ships Mali-T450 in their new M802 chip. James Bruce talks further of what ARM can do for the user experience, talks designing benchmarks to measure the performance of the user experience vs certain benchmarks measuring things that aren’t relevant to the user experience. The ARM Architecture ecosystem is amazing, for example, in Q2 2013, there were more ARM Cortex-A5 devices shipped than all x86 PC/Laptops combined in that quarter.

Google Glass app Glashion “OK glass, I want this!” buys anything you see

Posted by – December 29, 2013

Glashion is a Google Glass project that allows you to buy fashion products that you are looking at. Look at any fashionable bag or dress on a bypasser or in a store, and then the app queries the ShopStyle API for similar matches based on object recognition technology. You simply tell Glass when you see a product, “Ok glass, I want this!” and you can then buy the product with a blink. At least that is their idea.
