Google Glass seems to have gone the way of Wave and Plus, most people have heard of it but no one seems to actively use it. Apart from some news stories about socially inept use of the device in public areas the buzz around Google Glass has died down and for most it is Oculus who have more compelling eye wear. Some time in the coming year there will be a second release of the Google Glass which dumps the Texas Instruments chip for an unspecified ultra low power Intel chip, or at least that is the rumour from The Register and other sites. This launch sounds to be aimed more at enterprise customers, hard to imaging how having your PowerPoint presentation beamed into your customers eyeballs will help your sales but that is the gist of the marketing. This product still seems to be more appropriate for those who work with their hands and could benefit from hands free overlays of schematics or details but who knows, maybe your next job interview will be with someone reading your Facebook page in real time as they conduct your interview.
"GOOGLE REPORTEDLY plans to release a new Intel-powered version of Google Glass in 2015, as interest in its first-generation wearable dies down."

oh great where is that ARM
oh great where is that ARM a-hole at… get ready for a book report.
before he posts I would just
before he posts I would just like him to know how much of a champion asshole he truly is
Or that Big wanker that wears
Or that Big wanker that wears the big yellow prophylactic.
I guess the graphics on the Intel part will be terrible, but that just adds to the Glasshole chic of the Google Glass, and that contra revenue helps, but it will not be around forever. The Real assholes in America are the new monopoly suckups that come with every generation, you know the ones that are yelling that net neutrality is bad, and they are nothing but minions for the big Trusts.
x86 is on the way out of domination in the server room, thanks to the licensed Power8’s, that incidentally, Google will be licensing and have fabbed by GlobalFoundries for Google’s use, so it’s more than just ARM that has, and will be giving Intel problems, come 2015. Who is to say what will be derived from the Power8 core designs, I can see plenty of laptop/PC SKUs derived from the power8 core design, with its SMT, and RISC advantage, even over the ARM designs which are RISC, but do not yet support SMT. The x86 market will be under more than just pressure from ARM/Arm custom designs, like the Apple A8X, and Nvidia Denver, but everybody, ARM included, needs to watch out for the OpenPower Licensed Power8’s and their derivatives, Nvidia would do well licensing the Power8, for its grid servers, and do not tell me that this will not happen, as Nvidia’s GPUs are currently used to accelerate Power8s, and even Power9s, when that beast of a CPU drops into U. Sam’s supercomputers, along with Nvidia’s Volta GPU based accelerators.
Apple is not afraid of an ISA change, not in the least, and the Mac Pro would be much more powerful with a power8 CPU and 8 threads per core, than the current Xeon based model, and no need to change the GPU, as power8 comes with ample PCI 3.0 lanes, and Apple is most likely evaluating Power8, and the CAPI coherent interconnect fabric, as all this is licensable from OpenPower, I bet those Apple P.A. semiconductor engineers are looking over the Power8 IP, we Know that Apple needs in house servers for its online services, as well as Apple could use Power8 for its line of Mac Pros, licensed Power8’s for Apple’s use, customized for OSX/BSD/Linux, and only costing Apple engineering, and fab expenses, sans the Intel extortionist markup! Apple flush with cash in the Billions, has ample funds to take a power8 license and do with it many more things than what it has done with ARM.
Apple will be the one most likely taking a power8 license and deriving Laptop/PC SKUs from the base Power8 microarchitecture, Apple’s engineers have proven that they can make a custom microarchitecture that executes the ARMv8 ISA, now let them get to work with some power8 derived PC/Laptop CPUs, not that they would need to do any tweaking on the power8’s reference design, they only need to do a little deriving of the core parts to reassemble them into some powerful laptop/PC SOC parts.
The OpenPower foundation has some of the biggest players in the market, and more being added every day, but the x86 folks would have you think that there is no other computing being done with other ISAs, but they will be in for a big shock, once the Licensing of the Power8 IP begins to take hold, it just a matter of time, starting in 2015.
So Google gets a deal on some loss leader chips from Intel, for its Glass, as if there are that many Glassholes out there to begin with. Don’s expect Google to stick with only Xeon in the server room, and that’s many more billions than Google Glass! Tyan is building Googles power8 motherboards, and maybe the Tyan Power8s will be in there too, who knows, but there will be many others with their own licensed Power8’s and those high priced Intel parts, will not be able to command top dollar, Yuan, Yen, anymore!
Champion asshole, to those Monopoly suckup brown nosed boot lickers, enjoy your reading! x86 is not the only game in town! Real Competition is Good for everyone.
Makes sense that this guy is
Makes sense that this guy is English, trying to support the first decent business the country has had since the East India Trading company was peddling spices. Nobody comes here saying they dislike competition, we just don’t need to read your Magna Carta every time an article pops up about Intel. Makes me long to live in the 1700’s when we were rolling you guys in the Revolution, since which your country has turned into nothing but a mound for our cock to crow on. Keep your filthy mouth with its decrepit teeth filled with tea and crumpets so we don’t have to hear any more garbage spewed from a citizen of a second rate country.
Not English, but you know
Not English, but you know that America got RADAR from those English, it got the jet engine from those English, and as of late, historically wise, since Circa 1850 America has actually been ruled by its merchant princes, and not ruled to dissimilarly from the manner of King George III. America has had most of its technology invented by Immigrants, and not so much the native born, who like you are mostly of the hayseed variety. The post is not for you, it will be posted in response to Intel’s marketing spin, just go to the register to express you displeasure at the English, as they are having a jolly good laugh at the Intel inside, paid for with contra-revenue, SKU rumored to be in the next Google Glasses that are only a very niche market. Most of the long post provided does piss you off, but it appears to favor the Licensed IP business model, with regards to the power8, a RISC design from this side of the pond, and not x86 but a more powerful CPU than any x86 based competitor, just read the benchmarks, on the websites that cater to the server market, and not the gaming market, Power8 eats Xeon for lunch, but do not expect any gaming websites to ever say so, least they find themselves not receiving the review samples, and the ad revenues. Ever find it funny that so many gaming websites were reviewing one company’s Server SKUs, and using non server specific benchmarks to rate these server chips, and no comparisons to any Sparc or Power based server SKUs. Keep on drinking that KoolAid, but the computing market that you have been fooled into believing is all about x86, is in fact about much more than one single ISA.
The licensed IP market, exemplified by ARM holdings, and now IBM, via OpenPower, will very shortly be/has already been democratized in regards to the supply chain across the entire range of CPU/SOC markets, from the phone to the supercomputer, and the fair market has a way of dealing with the Intels, and the M$s, monopolies, even though the bought and paid for US government has been derelict in its duty for a few decades now. Expect the server rooms in the future to be running the many licensed Power8s, not necessary made for and by IBM, and expect the OEMs to have the final laugh on Intel, and M$, as both those monopolies fall faster into irrelevancy, the market hates to be gouged, especially the other enterprises who will now get their server CPU SKUs at commodity prices from the lowest bidder out of many suppliers competing for the OEM’s business.
As for rolling the English since the revolution, you traded a king, for some merchant princes, where is the difference? You obviously do not know your computing systems, and probably think high tech is more like a football match, especially your thinking that all RISC designs come from England, but oh does the mobile market failures for your big monopoly, chipzilla, hurt your fragile ego, and chipzella’s CPUs, and graphics, are a non starter in high end gaming, without the help Of AMD’s, or Nvidia’s graphics. Just you wait and see, Nvidia wanted that x86 license, but now Nvidia has its own custom ARMv8 running SKU, for the tablet market, and I just bet there will be Power8 based grid servers, with Nvidias latest GPU(all nicely Nvlinked up) running those gaming services with Intel Outside! With a Power8 license who needs the x86.
Competition is good, hayseed fanboy monopoly suckups, Nuts to YOU!
P.S. ARM Holdings is not that spectacular of a business, ARM holdings is a design bureau, it does not manufacture its designs, it sells designs to the ARM based industry, and the ARM holdings reference designs are not the only designs, ARM holdings also will only license the ARM ISA, and the licensee has the option of designing their own microarchitecture that can run the ARMv8 ISA, Apple’s A7/8/8X is actually much more powerful than any OF Arm Holdings reference design cores, same goes for Nvidia’s Denver. Now IBM’s reference design Power8 core is another matter altogether, it is a RISC design beast, with SMT(8 Threads per core), and those threads can be dynamically powered up, or down, depending on the workload, and it rivals Xeon in IPC, as well as bandwidth, and computational ability, and that beast’s core design is as licensable as the many ARM designs. The Licensed IP market will be the Only market, the monolithic CPU manufacturer in an endangered species living on borrowed time!
you’re an idiot, what a bunch
you’re an idiot, what a bunch of nonsense. Jet Engine? Most of that technology was studied from German invention after World War two. America has most of its technology developed by immigrants? Obviously its been a country of immigrants since it started. Intel stock is the highest its been in 14 years yet somehow I have to keep hearing about the doom that is about to happen because ARM developed some cell phone processors that cant compete in the server market. Where are all these ARM servers, they’re about as existent as Intel is in the mobile market. Suck a fat dick you blue ribbon fuck
