Samsung starts production of new 10-nm Exynos 9 Series chip

Samsung unveiled Thursday a new octa-core application processor that combines a custom CPU with a gigabit LTE modem and a separate processing unit for security applications, leading to speculation that it could be designed into the new flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone that the company is expected to launch soon.

The Exynos 9 Series 8895 is already in mass production and Samsung expects the chip to be designed into smartphones, VR headsets, and automotive infotainment systems.

The new processor chipset is the first from Samsung to use the 10-nanometer FinFET process technology that delivers up to 27 percent higher performance while consuming 40 percent less power when compared to earlier 14-nm technology, the company said.

Broadcom will unload the Ruckus Wireless Wi-Fi business for US$800 million when it takes over Brocade Communications Systems later this year.

Verizon plans 5G trial service in 11 cities this year

Lab tests of pre-standard 5G wireless with multi-gigabit speeds are evolving into trial services that users can actually enjoy in the real world ? though not necessarily while walking around with a smartphone.

Verizon said Wednesday it will launch pre-commercial 5G service in 11 markets around the U.S. by the middle of this year, joining rival AT&T in aggressively deploying the future technology.

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week, carriers are expected to announce more upcoming 5G trials.

The Verizon trial, planned for select users in cities including Atlanta, Denver, Miami, and Seattle, will use fixed wireless equipment for home broadband instead of mobile networks for roving devices. But it?s an early use of millimeter-wave frequencies that carriers say they will need for future high-speed mobile broadband.

Researchers prove that a hard drive's LED light can be used to covertly leak ...

The seemingly harmless blinking lights on servers and desktop PCs may give away secrets if a hacker can hijack them with malware.

Researchers in Israel have come up with an innovative hack that turns a computer's LED light into a signaling system that shows passwords and other sensitive data.

The researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev demonstrated the hack in a YouTube video posted Wednesday. It shows a hacked computer broadcasting the data through a computer?s LED light, with a drone flying nearby reading the pattern.

The researchers designed the scheme to underscore vulnerabilities of air-gapped systems, or computers that have been intentionally disconnected from the internet.

Kite-surfing could put rural Brits online

U.K. network operator EE plans to deliver 4G internet access from a kite-like balloon first developed as an observation and communications platform for the military.

The Helikite was invented in the 1990s and has also found favor with Antarctic explorers, disaster relief workers and emergency services.EE revealed its plans to deliver wide-area network coverage from the helium-filled balloons on Tuesday, although it won't have the first one in service until later in the year.

According to Allsopp Helikites, the maker of the kite-balloons, hoisting a 4G base station aloft can increase its range from 3 kilometers to between 30 km and 80 km.

Halo Wars 2 review: Spinning its Warthog wheels in a stagnant RTS genre

I briefly wrote about Halo Wars 2 last week?mostly performance and issues I had with the PC controls at launch. Rather than rehashing those quibbles, head over herefor PCWorld?s look at the technical side of Halo Wars 2.

This will be our official review of the actual game, focused primarily on the campaign and the ?should-be-good-except? Blitz Mode, both of which I put more time over the past week. The short version? Halo Wars 2 isn?tbad, but it?s definitely not the real-time strategy genre?s long-sought salvation.

What to expect from the Trump administration on cybersecurity

Look for U.S. President Donald Trump's administration to push for increased cybersecurity spending in government, but also for increased digital surveillance and encryption workarounds.

That's the view of some cybersecurity policy experts, who said they expect Trump to focus on improving U.S. agencies' cybersecurity while shying away from new cybersecurity regulations for businesses.

Trump is likely to look for ways for the National Security Agency and other agencies to assist the government and companies defend against cyberattacks, saidJeffrey Eisenach, a visiting scholar at theAmerican Enterprise Institute and a tech advisor during Trump's presidential transition.

New macOS ransomware spotted in the wild

A new file-encrypting ransomware program for macOS is being distributed through BitTorrent websites, and users who fall victim to it won?t be able to recover their files, even if they pay.

Crypto ransomware programs for macOS are rare. This is the second such threat found in the wild so far, and it?s a poorly designed one. The program was named OSX/Filecoder.E by the malware researchers from antivirus vendor ESET who found it.

OSX/Filecoder.E masquerades as a cracking tool for commercial software like Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Microsoft Office for Mac and is being distributed as a BitTorrent download. It is written in Apple?s Swift programming language by what appears to be an inexperienced developer, judging from the many mistakes made in its implementation.

Test your PC's Ghost Recon: Wildlands performance in this weekend's open beta

It?s that time again! And by ?that time? I of course mean time for one of Ubisoft?s infamous ?open betas? a.k.a. time-limited demo periods right before a game?s launch?this time for the upcoming Ghost Recon: Wildlands. We?re about two weeks out from parachuting through drug-torn Bolivia officially, but you can get your hands on the game this weekend.

You?ll have four days to explore a subsection of Ghost Recon?s map, the provinces of Itacua and Montuyoc. The former is the opening area from the full game, so it should serve as a pretty good demo, while the latter ?is located in the highlands and has impressive vistas where you can watch the red lakes from above.? Montuyoc should be ideal for testing those draw-distances, which potential buyers should jump on after somereports of performance inconsistencies plagued Ghost Recon?s closed beta on the PC.

Ryzen is here. AMD said Wednesday that it plans a ?hard launch? of its first three Ryzen processors on March 2. The highly anticipated chips promise to outperform high-end parts from Intel and undercut their prices by as much as 54 percent.

AMD executives confidently unveiled the first three desktop chips to attack Intel?s Core i7, supported by several top-tier motherboard vendors and boutique system builders. In many cases, executives said, AMD will offer more for less, as early Ryzen benchmarks prove. The top-tier Ryzen 7 1800X will cost less than half of what Intel?s thousand-dollar Core i7-6900K chip does?and outperform it, too.You can preorder Ryzen chips and systems from 180 retailers and system integrators today.
