How long has Bob Muglia's departure been brewing?

Sometimes the other shoe of an executive's departure drops pretty quickly. We wondered why the CEO of AMD was on his way out right after what seemed like a pretty successful CES for the combined CPU and GPU that AMD dubs an 'advanced' processor unit (it's last year's discrete GPU at a bargain price and with good battery life) in favour of someone who the company thinks can deliver "significant growth, establish market leadership and generate superior financial returns".

CES 2011: Nvidia is developing its first CPU

Most of Nvidia's press conference at CES was devoted to its Tegra 2 processor for smartphones and tablets, but CEO Jen-Hsun Huang saved one big surprise for the end, a project to develop a high-performance CPU for PCs and servers based on the ARM.

CES 2011: AMD's Fusion APUs arrive in new laptops

Getting a jump on Intel, AMD announced its first Fusion processors on the eve of CES 2011. Like Intel's Sandy Bridge processors, AMD's Accelerated Processing Units combine a CPU and a graphics processor on a single die, but these low-power APUs are designed for different sorts of laptops, netbooks and desktops.

ExoPC Slate

It's nearly a year since Steve Ballmer stood on stage at CES and waved a hand at a bench full of slate format tablet devices running Windows 7. That's a year in which very few Windows tablet devices have actually shipped, and one where Android and iOS have taken the tablet crown away from Microsoft.

MobileTechRoundup show #128, CTIA, S60 gaming, ULCPC, and WM 6.1

I was all excited about Sprint's XOHM WiMax after talking with Sprint at CES, but as you can hear from James and Kevin in MobileTechRoundup show #128 they were right to predict that rollout may be coming later than originally stated. We also talked about the excellent new, and free, Opera Mini 4.1 beta that is available for any Java-enabled mobile device. There was confirmation of rumors at CTIA this past week and we talked a bit about Windows Mobile 6.1 and the new IE Mobile application. I had to throw in some S60 news too and talked about the new Astraware game and N-Gage 2 releases. Velocity Mobile and their two new sweet devices was another topic of conversationg. Windows XP also looks like it may be around for a couple of more years, but only if you buy a ULCPC (listen to the show to hear what that stands for). We closed with a teaser about a product we plan to discuss in our next show that James is currently testing.

Hardware DEP saves day again on VML IE exploit

This is the third time in a row that hardware-enforced DEP has preemptively protected me from a zero-day Internet Explorer exploit. The first time I verified this was with the WMF exploit, the second time was a zero-day IE exploit this March. Therefore I highly recommend people enable DEP protection in Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 and never buy a CPU without NX or XD capability.
