  • AMD leaks have been plentiful this weekend, just days before the Hawaii event. There have been leaks/rumors surrounding the new video cards and there has been leaks/rumors about Kaveri. Lets talk about Kaveri. The most recent rumors surrounding Kaveri are that the chip will top out at 832 stream processors instead of 512. The “leaks” show the chip posting several hundred percent gains in benchmarks over CPUs that cant take advantage of gpgpu compute like HSA can, all on 3GB of 1600 DDR3. Kaveri is going to be the first chip ever to support HSA, so hearing rumors that it...

  • We all know what OUYA is, it’s that small, cheap, Android based gaming console that recently started shipping and everyone has already forgot about. You know the cheap console that everyone reported as having poor build quality and piss poor performance. Yes OUYA. Beyond its many shortcomings, OUYA was a big move for the gaming industry. It marked the first real attempt to bring Android into the living-room as a gaming console and media entertainment center.  With the momentum behind Android it really makes sense, Android dominates the smartphone market and in turn consumers are eating up all the content...

  •   Wait wut? What does Amazon have to do with Google? Google is a search engine, Amazon is a online retailer, what in the world do these two companies have in common?

Doesn’t seem all that bad for Google, when you think of eBooks there are only two players really, Amazon and Barnes and Noble. So who cares, how can Amazon really affect Google in a...

  • Like the Stark and Lannister families, there is a epic battle waging on in the field. In this case we are watching the likes of Amazon (AMZN), Bestbuy (BBY), Target (TGT), Google (GOOG), hhgregg (HGG) and the likes of every other retailer as they battle it out for a larger piece of the pie in the retail field. Who is the bad guy in this story? That is up to debate from a consumer standpoint but ill tell you what, every retailer has their sights set on Amazon.com. Unlike almost every financial blogger, I don’t think I need to give introductions on every company and what...

  • Is it true?  Is Bestbuy going private?  Today the founder and former CEO of Bestbuy (NYSE:BBY), Richard Schulze, informed the board that he will be immediately resigning from his spot as chairman of the board, weeks before he was to step down to chairman emeritus.

The stock fell nearly 9% about a hour or so into trading. New rumors have emerged about Bestbuy going private,  and the word on the street is...

Right away you are most likely thinking this is going to be yet another post about CPU’s, GPU’s and SOC’s, while technically is it, the focus today is about the supply and demand of 28nm and the stock that will benefit from its shortage. It seems that lately, all the rage has been surrounding 28nm parts, and for...
