Apple, Google, Intel, and Adobe agree to settlement in employee-poaching lawsuit

Four of the biggest names in Silicon Valley, including Google and Apple, have agreed to a new settlement deal in an antitrust lawsuit over alleged agreements the firms had not to poach each others’ employees. Adobe, Intel, Google, and Apple reached an agreement on Tuesday four years after the lawsuit, which accused the companies of limiting job mobility, was brought against them by workers in the tech sector.

Google Glass will return in 2015 with Intel inside, says WSJ

2015 will see Google launch a new model of its Glass headset, which will be powered by an Intel chip and offer longer battery life than the current Explorer Edition, according to The Wall Street Journal. Google Glass has already been through a couple of small iterative upgrades — one to add compatibility with prescription lenses and another to double the RAM — but the shift to a new processor could signal a more thorough overhaul of the entire wearable.

Limited battery life and a forbidding, four-figure price tag have militated against Glass’ widespread adoption up until now. With a more modern processor and a refreshed design, it could see consumer interest rekindled, though Intel seems more interested in promoting Glass as a workplace…

Intel merging mobile and PC groups as line between phone and computer blurs

Chip-making giant Intel is set to merge its mobile and tablet division together with the part of the company that makes processors for personal computers. The company’s chief executive, Brian Krzanich, announced the plan — which will combine the loss-making mobile group with the profitable PC chip-making group early next year — in an email to employees. Intel spokesperson Chuck Mulloy said the move comes as the “lines are blurring between PCs, tablets, phablets and phones,” and explained that the company’s aim is to “accelerate the implementation and create some efficiency so that we can move even faster.”

The company said in April this year that its mobile division had a “roadmap to profitability,” but apparently decided to try a…

Intel paying up after allegedly ‘manipulating’ benchmarks 15 years ago

Once upon a time, Intel’s processors didn’t dominate AMD. In fact, AMD’s Athalon processors were mighty competitive, enough so that Intel allegedly “manipulated” its Pentium 4 benchmark scores in the early 2000s to mask the performance gap. Intel denies those claims, but nevertheless, you’re probably feeling pretty taken advantage of right now.

Thankfully there’s some good news: Intel might pay you a hefty $ 15 for your suffering anyways. That’s about an entire dollar per year for having to live with a Pentium 4 computer. A new class action lawsuit is now accepting claims from consumers like you who purchased a Pentium 4 PC between November 20th, 2000 and June 30th, 2002. And don’t worry about digging up a receipt — it’s not needed to…

Samsung’s Chromebook 2 can now be purchased with Intel inside for $250

When Samsung released its Chromebook 2 earlier this year, it shipped with the company’s own Exynos 5 Octa chipset. And you can still buy those 11.6 and 13-inch models — though better Chromebooks exist. Today, Samsung’s adding a third option: a second 11.6-inch Chromebook 2 powered by an Intel processor. To be more specific, it’s a fanless Celeron N2840 chipset that can run at up to 2.58GHz. The Intel Chromebook 2 has 2GB of RAM, whereas the models running Samsung’s own chip feature 4GB of memory, so you may need to occasionally cut back on the number of tabs you’ve got open. If you’re set on an Intel chip, Acer’s C720P with an i3 processor is another option. Storage remains the same at 16GB; obviously Chrome OS places a huge focus on…

Intel issues apology after backlash from #GamerGate opponents

After receiving a thorough shellacking for pulling its advertising campaign from gaming site Gamasutra this week, Intel issued a statement this evening arguing that it did not intend on taking sides in the ugly #GamerGate debate, nor did it want to give the impression that it is in any way anti-woman and anti-equality. According to the release:

When it comes to our support of equality and women, we want to be very clear: Intel believes men and women should be treated the same. And, diversity is an integral part of our corporate strategy and vision with commitments to improve the diversity of our workforce. And while we respect the right of individuals to have their personal beliefs and values, Intel does not support any organization…

Intel just made a snakeskin smartwatch for women

Back in January, Intel said it would be working with designer Opening Ceremony to create a smart wearable device that was also fashionable. The big question was just what exactly what it would do. The two companies answered that today with the My Intelligent Communication Accessory (or MICA), a wireless bracelet that could easily be confused with a normal piece of jewelry from one side, and a smartwatch on the other. The device displays SMS alerts and notifications on a curved, sapphire glass touchscreen display that wraps around one side of the device, similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Gear S smartwatch. According to Business Insider, there also plans to include a 3G radio so that the bracelet can function sans phone.

Intel Clear: a new corporate font for Intel

tittle

Intel recently announced a new font built just for its brand: Intel Clear.

The new font was developed by Red Peak and Dalton Maag. Subtle changes are designed to make it easier to read. For example, Intel Clear’s characters have more even proportions, rounder features and square dots when compared to the old typeface.

Intel’s logo, which doesn’t feature the old typeface, won’t be changing. However, Intel Clear incorporates many elements of the corporate logo to ensure the two complement each other.  The font will be used in all corporate communications, such as on its website.
