Chip and Joanna Gaines 'want to invest' in a Montecito home: report

  Chip and Joanna Gaines 'want to invest' in a Montecito home: report Chip and Joanna Gaines could potentially make the move to California. The couple is reportedly looking to "invest" in a home in Montecito.The creators of the hit HGTV show "Fixer Upper" currently reside in Waco, Texas -- where they started their brand Magnolia.

In view of the large semiconductor bottleneck, some large technology companies no longer want to be dependent on the chip manufacturers and therefore design their own chips. In addition, companies with chips can be tailored to their own special requirements, withdraw from their competitors.

• Pandemic pulls supply chains in pain and leads to ChipMangel

• Tech companies want to develop chips themselves - production is likely to remain in semiconductor companies

• Objective: Less dependence on chip manufacturers and withdraw from Competitors

The Other Sara Morrisons are ruining my inbox

  The Other Sara Morrisons are ruining my inbox Email is an awful online ID that we use for almost everything.Today, Gmail is the most popular email service in the world, which has created a seemingly limitless number of what I collectively refer to as the Other Sara Morrisons: people who share my name and who, for whatever reason, enter my Gmail address when they mean to use their own. Their frequent invasions of my inbox have made me realize how much trust many of us put in a system that wasn’t designed to do some of the things we’ve come to use it for.

According to corporate announcements and media reports, companies like Apple , Amazon , Google , Facebook , Tesla and Baidu in future want to get part of the chip development into their own house.

Numerous Announcements

for objects already made in November 2020 Apple to remove with its announcement from Intel to develop its own processor, which is now in the new Macs and iPads. Not too long ago, US Electroautobauer Tesla also announced to build a "dojo" chip to train artificial intelligence networks in data centers. In addition, Baidu in August launched a KI chip on the market, which should help devices to process huge amounts of data and increase computing power. As CNBC reports, the Chip "Kunlun 2" could be used in areas such as autonomous driving and arrived in mass production.

Big Tech Companies Helped Fund Far-Right Groups Pushing for Texas Abortion Ban

  Big Tech Companies Helped Fund Far-Right Groups Pushing for Texas Abortion Ban Corporate backlash to the Texas abortion ban has so far been narrow and targeted, but one notably quiet sector has plenty of room—and money—to work with: Big Tech. A review of public disclosures from Facebook, Google, and Amazon shows the tech giants have for years funded some of the most influential conservative political organizations and dark money groups responsible for the war on abortion rights. Those groups include The Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute, the Committee for Justice, and the Republican Attorneys General Association.

also Google approaches Nikkei Asia's report according to the introduction of its own CPUs for its laptops and tablets. The search giant tarpaulin, to use its CPUs from about 2023 in chromebooks and tablets running on the company's chrome operating system. Meanwhile, Amazon develops its own network chip to power hardware switches with electricity that move data in networks, which the trading giant could reduce its dependence on Broadcom . Already two years ago, Facebooks of Senior KI scientists to Bloomberg declared that the company is working on a new, different semiconductor class, reported CNBC.

Tailored Chips

Syed Alam, Head of Global Semiconductors at Accenture, explains to CNBC. "These companies are increasingly wanting tailor-made chips that meet the specific requirements of their applications rather than use the same generic chips as their competitors". According to Alam, they give you more control over the integration of software and hardware and also lift them from their competitors.

Silicon Valley wants you to know Theranos isn’t Silicon Valley

  Silicon Valley wants you to know Theranos isn’t Silicon Valley The trial of Elizabeth Holmes, former CEO of Theranos, isn’t a reckoning for the tech industry.Theranos’s ultimate goal, a printer-sized machine that required only a drop of blood and could process hundreds of blood tests in pharmacies across the country, was always lofty. But in 2018, federal prosecutors accused Holmes of intentionally misleading investors and running faulty tests on patients’ blood samples to fuel her own financial success. Holmes’s lawyers insist that the 37-year-old Stanford dropout truly believed in her company but made “mistakes” in her otherwise noble mission to make faster, cheaper blood-testing.

also Russ Shaw, former nonconductive director at Dialog Semiconductor, believes that custom chips are better functioning and cheaper. "These specially developed chips can help reduce energy consumption for devices and products of the respective technology company, whether they are smartphones or cloud services," says Shaw to CNBC.

But there is another reason why companies want to take the development of chips increasingly in their own hands: the persistent chip kneading. "The pandemic has highly affected these supply chains, which has accelerated the efforts to produce their own chips," says Glenn O'Donnell, Research Director at Analyst House Forrester, opposite CNBC. "Many were already limited in their innovation pace, as they were bound to the schedules of chip manufacturers," says O'Donnell.

production is likely to continue with chip manufacturers

but the tech giants do not want to take the chip development according to the experts but not completely self. "Everything revolves around the design and performance of the chip," explains Russ Shaw to CNBC. "At this stage, it is not about the production and production facilities, which is very costly." According to Glenn O'Donnell, even Google and Apple resigned to build an expensive chip factory. "You will go to TSMC or even Intel to build your chips," says O'Donnell. In the Silicon Valley, according to O'donnell, it also gives a lack of people with the skills required to develop high-end processors: "Silicon Valley has placed so much emphasis on software in recent decades that hardware engineering as anachronism was considered ".

Elon Musk’s problematic plan for “full self driving” Teslas .
Concerns about features like Autopilot aren’t going unnoticed in Washington.“Basic safety issues have to be addressed before they’re then expanding it to other city streets and other areas,” Jennifer Homendy, the head of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), told the Wall Street Journal after Elon Musk tweeted about the update. It’s worth pointing out that, much to Tesla owners’ frustration, Musk has made promises about a wider rollout of Full Self-Driving for years and continuously pushed back the date the feature would be available to anyone willing to pay for the upgrade to Autopilot, Tesla’s standard driver assistance technology.
