OMAP 5′s dual A15 cores wipe the floor with four A9s in browsing benchmark

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

We’ve seen Texas Instrument’s OMAP 5 in action, but we haven’t been able to pit it directly against a competitor. The Dallas company must be growing more and more confident in its product however, as its posted a video demoing its pair of A15 cores alongside an unspecified quad-core A9 part — presumably the Tegra 3. The video shows the next-gen TI part powering through the EEMBC BrowsingBench in 95 seconds, while its opposition takes a whopping 201. What’s more, this thrashing was performed by an 800MHz part — the four A9s were clocked at 1.3GHz. Of course, Tegra 3s are already in shipping products, while the OMAP 5 might not find a home in consumer devices before 2013. It’s also unclear just how much of a hit these new high-powered ARM cores will have on battery life or how much the pair of M4 companion cores helped in the benchmark. Head on after the break to watch a pair of tablets load up 20 websites in quick succession.

Google asks judge to secure ‘competitively sensitive data’ in AT&T/T-Mobile case

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Google asked a federal judge to secure “competitively sensitive data” that may be revealed during the Justice Department’s investigation into AT&T’s proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday. Google said the data it provided to the investigation is related to its Android operating system and it fears the information could be leaked to the press or its competitors. “Without such additional protection, Google and other non- parties could find their confidential information — such as Google’s business plans related to Android — in the hands of competitors (or their competitors’ consultants), or even in newspapers, without having had prior notice of its disclosure,” Google said. The U.S. government filed a lawsuit in opposition of the merger on August 31st, noting that the merger would “remove a significant competitive force from the market.”

Yankee Group: 73% of iPhone users are happy with AT&T

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

According to a survey by Yankee Group, 73% of iPhone users surveyed are very satisfied with AT&T’s service. This figure seemingly contradicts the perception that AT&T’s network is struggling to handle the load of this data hungry device and is in direct opposition to comments by many iPhone users who are seemingly unhappy with AT&T’s service. Yankee Group attributes this discrepancy to a “halo effect” in which iPhone owners are so drunk with happiness over their handset that they perceive AT&T in a positive light. AT&T explains this away by stating their network issues stem from a perception problem, not a service problem and claims that its network is actually better than most people think. iPhone owners on AT&T, now is your chance to respond. Hit us up in the comments and let us know what you think about AT&T, your iPhone, and this survey.

FCC will consider ‘free or very low cost wireless broadband’ service

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Did you know there was a Digital Inclusion Summit going on? We already know the FCC isn’t best pleased about the fact 93 million Americans are making do without access to home broadband, and this latest event was an opportunity for it to dish some more info on its forthcoming National Broadband Plan. The major obstacles to broadband adoption identified by the FCC were noted as cost, computer illiteracy, and a sheer lack of awareness about the benefits the web offers (outside of cute kitties). The big Plan will be delivered to Congress a week from today, and its suggestions will include the creation of a Digital Literacy Corps, who’ll be performing missionary duties among the unenlightened, and the big whopper: a proposal to “consider use of spectrum for a free or very low cost wireless broadband service.” Yeah, if you can’t jump over the cost hurdle you might as well eviscerate it from existence. Quite naturally, such radical plans have been met with much grumbling opposition, and Business Week reports that it may be years before the full reforms are implemented … if at all.
