The six quad-core mobile processors that debuted Monday as part of Intel’s first wave of Ivy Bridge parts could be enough to outfit Apple with processors for a complete MacBook Pro revamp, assuming Cupertino is ready to go quad-core for all its “pro” notebooks.
On Monday (as rumored) Intel launched a range of quad-core Ivy Bridge processors, built on its latest 22nm, 3D “tri-gate” transistor process. A product roadmap leak in late March suggested that some of those chips would launch in late April, while the rest would be delayed until early June. Among the leaked parts slated for April were 45W TDP quad-core parts that would make a good fit for Apple’s higher-end 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pros. Dual-core parts that used less power (35W TDP) suitable for low-end models and the 13″ MacBook Pro would have to wait.
Intel has officially launched the first wave of its Ivy Bridge processors with a new tri-gate transistor technology, touting the new chips as the “world’s first 22 nanometer product.”
Intel revealed on Tuesday that the first wave of its next-generation Ivy Bridge processors will feature quad-core models, the bulk of which are headed for desktop computers, followed by a second launch of dual-core chips for “mainstream notebooks.”
Intel is believed to be pushing up the launch of its first wave of Ivy Bridge processors by one week to April 23. According to sources for DigiTimes, Intel will announce availability of its next-generation 22nm processors on that day in order to pump up demand for new ultrabook models from ASUS, Acer, Lenovo, and HP.
Intel suggested in February that the highly anticipated Ivy Bridge processors, which are built using 3D tri-gate transistors on a new 22nm process, would be delayed until June. However, leaked information about the launch that surfaced just two weeks ago suggested Intel would instead roll out various processors on a staggered release schedule, with some processors becoming available at the end of April. The rest would start shipping in quantity just over a month later in early June.
On the heels of a report that Microsoft is aiming to release Windows 8 in September or October, a new rumor claims first-tier tablet vendors will launch their first Windows 8 devices in October.
When Twitter and LinkedIn were hitting their first wave of buzz, waves of critics surfaced to let everyone know it was ‘too little, too late’ — social was already done by Facebook and better. That juvenile analysis has given way to the realization that social is not just a single stream, but rather a rushing river of which there will be several branches. One of those branches is the professional social space, of which LinkedIn is king.

Twitter is now accepting sign-ups from small businesses that want to participant in its self-serve ad program.
The self-serve rollout was reported this afternoon by Ad Age and others, and the sign-up page is now live. In a promotion with American Express, Twitter offering a $100 credit for free advertising to the first 10,000 businesses that register — you just have to accept American Express cards, or be a cardholder yourself. Oh, and the sign-up process also requires you to follow American Express on Twitter.
Twitter has been talking about expanding its advertising program to a self-serve model for a while now. Ad Age reports that the company currently works with 3,000 advertisers, so even the first wave of self-serve customers will mark a big expansion of the program. The self-serve platform is supposed go live in late March.
A Twitter spokesperson says the company will be making a more formal announcement on Friday.
De Nokia Lumia 800 ligt inmiddels zo’n 10 dagen in de winkels van de zes ‘first wave’ landen en het toestel zal binnenkort ook naar diverse andere landen verscheept worden.
Of het toestel een verkoopsucces wordt zal de tijd moeten leren. Mijns in……
De reden dat de Nokia Lumia 800 pas (begin) volgend jaar in de VS te koop zal zijn heeft volgens deze nieuwste geruchten niet alleen te maken met het feit dat de USA niet bij de ‘first wave’ landen hoort.
Volgens The Verge zou Nokia namelijk, sam……
You know how a parent isn’t supposed to show favoritism toward one child? I almost feel that way about the seven Live #Blogchats that have been so far this year. Every one had amazing discussions and was special in its own way.
But Live #Blogchat at Blog World Expo was my favorite one so far. By far.
This was the 1st Live #Blogchat where there were several regular and active #Blogchat participants in attendance. At all the other Live #Blogchats, at best there were a handful that had joined a few times, maybe a couple of regular participants. But for many, they had little to no idea what a ‘#blogchat’ was. This group not only knew what it was, but they knew the people that were going to be there. Many of them showed up 30 minutes early to the session just to meet each other and I lost track of how many times I heard someone scream OMG! and then immediately tacklehug someone! This was the first Live #Blogchat where I really felt like the community was present. When the first wave showed up, we all were so excited to see each other that we spent about 5 minutes posing for pictures
This is what I really wanted to see happy at the Live events because #Blogchat belongs to its community. Yes, I started #Blogchat almost 3 years ago, but there are hundreds of people that have taken an active role in building #blogchat into what it is today. I cannot wait to see what the Live #Blogchats look like a year from now when everyone is familiar with the format, and the audience is mostly made up of regulars, like it was at Blog World.
Thanks to Judy for the above pic! Now I wanted to explain how this room was structured. When I got to the room about an hour before Live #Blogchat started, you had a room with 90ish chairs, all facing forward. The 1st two rows were at tables, facing the stage along with the rest of the chairs. I wanted the chairs all facing toward the middle, so we switched the 1st two rows of chairs at the tables that you see in this pic, so they were facing the back of the room. Then as a few people started arriving, James asked ‘So who’s going to be on stage?’ Without thinking, I said ‘You are!’ And all the live-bloggers for the session got to be up on stage. I *really* thought it was important to have active #blogchat members up on the stage because if the ‘spotlight’ was going to be on anyone in this session, it should be on them.
The discussion, as always, was excellent. We started off talking about creating a blogging strategy, but as always happens in #blogchat on Twitter, we soon started veering off into other areas like finding a focus for your blog, your content, injecting personal tones and personality to your blog to give it a unique voice; your own. James did a great job of collecting many of the key tweeted takeaways from the Live #Blogchat via Storify. I did want to send out a special thank you to Tamsen McMahon, Jason Falls, Marcy Massura and Mark Horvath for making a special effort to answer questions from fellow #blogchat participants. I honestly think I talked way too much during #blogchat, and I had several participants afterward mention how much they appreciated their help.
And thanks to James for this picture, I don’t like most of my pictures, but this was a good one. Clearly, being around #Blogchat peeps brings out the best in me
I would hope that most of you had as much fun at the Live #Blogchat at Blog World as I did, but I know you didn’t Many of you have been asking about the next Live #Blogchat, it is tentatively scheduled for South By Southwest in March. Right now I am trying to get sponsors and the venue locked down, so if you know a company that might be a good fit for a Live #Blogchat sponsorship, please email me and I’ll be happy to give them a rundown on what’s included, prices, etc.
When #Blogchat started, I told everyone that I appreciated them for coming, and loved them for it. I meant every single word of that. As we were getting set up, I went to check my phone to see how much time I had left before we got started, and I realized I was smiling from ear to ear. I was so damn happy to see everyone and so glad they could share in this experience! As soon as I thanked everyone for coming at the end of our hour, everyone got up and instead of leaving, all stayed and chatted and I realized how incredible LOUD it suddenly got in the room because everyone was either talking really loud because they were excited to be meeting someone, or because they were laughing at something someone had just said.
I loved it. And I love all of you that came and made it possible!
