    The Paris terrorist attackers conducted prior surveillance of at least some of the locations they attacked and showed signs of tactical planning and military-style training, a new U.S. intelligence bulletin says. The bulletin issued by the FBI, Homeland Security department and the National Counterterrorism Center warns U.S. law enforcement to review training to deal with active shooters, according to U.S. officials. The bulletin, which was described to CNN and confirmed by other U.S. officials, advises local law enforcement to go over active shooter scenarios and asks for them to be on the lookout for any suspicious people doing

    Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson claimed that she has sources who say President Barack Obama has "closed his mind" to some intelligence reports with which he disagrees. Wednesday on NewsmaxTV's "Steve Malzberg Show," Attkisson asserted that Obama "does not necessarily listen to the people with whom they disagrees. He seems to dig in. … He is facing formidable opposition on this particular point." Attkisson explained, "I have talked to people who have worked in the Obama administration who firmly believe he’s made up his mind, I would say closed his mind, they say, to their intelligence that they've tried...

    Intel now has a thousand people or more working to outfit a 2016 iPhone with its lauded 7360 LTE modem chip, sources say. If all goes well, Intel may end up providing both the modem and the fabrication for a new Apple system on a chip.Sources close to the matter say Intel is pulling out the stops to supply the modems for at least some of the iPhones Apple manufactures in 2016. This phone will likely be the iPhone 7. VentureBeat was the first to report on the two companies’ work together, and more pieces are falling into place...

    Chipmakers Intel and Micron said Tuesday they've created a hyperfast memory chip, up to 1,000 times faster than standard NAND Flash memory. Intel and Micron say they've been working more than a decade on their new, "3D XPoint" chip, which is based on a new, three-dimensional structure and a different set of materials than standard memory chips. The new chip doesn't use transistors, which are the standard on/off switches in microprocessors and nearly every other category of computer chip.

The foundation for the modern semiconductor industry got its start in the late 1940s and 1950s. Electronics up until then were dependent on vacuum tubes. These werent, to say the least, very easy to miniaturize. But we did try to use them. In 1946, the U.S. government built the first general-purpose electronic computer. It was called ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer) and contained over 17,000 vacuum tubes, along...

    Microsoft currently offers OEMs a low-cost version of Windows 8.1 called Windows 8.1 with Bing. The OS is like the proper version of Windows 8.1 but the OEM cannot change the default search engine and it is less expensive to licenses as well; the OS is designed for entry level machines. The reason Microsoft has this SKU is so that it can have products at the low end of the market with prices that are competitive to Google's Chromebooks. Because Windows licensing fees are overhead to the purchase price, they can be restrictive to the floor the price of Windows...

    The world's largest chip maker just made its largest acquisition ever. Intel is buying programmable chip maker Altera Corporation in a $16.7 billion cash deal with stockholders taking home $54 per share. The merger comes amidst a lag in the personal-computer market, one that Intel's been able to stay above. Intel's first-quarter earnings report in April showed a 3 percent rise in income compared to the same quarter last year. And Intel likely wants to continue keeping its head above water. That's where Altera should help out. A joint press release said Intel's products and manufacturing process will join with...

    Intel's recent results suggest a slowdown in firms leaving the ancient OS behind and upgrading to new systems. Why won't they update? Most interesting detail that emerged from Intel's lackluster first quarter financial results had nothing to do with mobile, the company's white whale. Instead, it concerned something so old that it almost seems laughable in the same week that the very 21st-century Apple Watch dominated headlines. Per ZDNet's own Larry Dignan: In a statement, Intel said it cut its first quarter outlook because of "weaker than expected demand for business desktop PCs and lower than expected inventory levels across...

According to Intel researchers speaking at the ISSCC conference this week, however, we still have headroom for a few more years. Intel plans to present several papers this week at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco, one of the key academic conferences for papers on chip design. Intel senior fellow Mark Bohr will also appear on a panel Monday night to discuss the challenges of moving from today's 14nm chips to the 10nm manufacturing node and beyond.

Once the story was out, the Los Angeles Times and Wall Street Journal covered it as well. Now the program is damaged, perhaps severely so, and the financing of terror is harder to track.

    When George W. Bush was president, a week didn't go by when the press wasn't dismissing his intelligence and proclaiming his administration's incompetence. Over the weekend, President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to the troops in Afghanistan. Someone on his staff demonstrated truly jaw-dropping incompetence by accidentally releasing to 6,000 journalists the name of the CIA station chief in Afghanistan as part of Obama's welcoming delegation. That is a death sentence, not just for the agent but for all those around him. Try to imagine the media firestorm this would have created had the transgression occurred during the W...

Instead, starting in 2015, the government will order up to one million devices annually based on the "Baikal" processor, which is manufactured by a domestic company called T-Platforms.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The intelligence linking Syrian President Bashar Assad or his inner circle to an alleged chemical weapons attack that killed at least 100 people is no "slam dunk," with questions remaining about who actually controls some of Syria's chemical weapons stores and doubts about whether Assad himself ordered the strike, U.S. intelligence officials say. snip However, multiple U.S. officials used the phrase "not a slam dunk" to describe the intelligence picture - a reference to then-CIA Director George Tenet's insistence in 2002 that U.S. intelligence showing Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was a "slam dunk" - intelligence...

    Texas Instruments just put a chip through the heart of Intels Thunderbolt folly with their new HD3SS2521 DockPort controller. This little $1.85 chip both vastly simplifies the user experience and shines a harsh light on what Intel cant do with a closed and 75x more expensive solution. If you havent been paying attention, DockPort is the sane and open answer to Intels still broken and anti-user Light Peak/Thunderbolt interface. Formerly called Lightning Bolt, DockPort was AMDs answer to the non-solution that Intel tried to spin Thunderbolt as. Several years in Thunderbolt is achieving some of the features promised at release...

    The White House dismissed the bulk of President Barack Obamas premier panel of outside intelligence advisers earlier this year, leaving the blue-ribbon commission largely vacant as the public furor built over the National Security Agencys widespread tracking of Americans telephone calls. The Presidents Intelligence Advisory Board stood 14 members strong through 2012, but the White House website was recently updated to show the panels roster shrinking to just four people. In the past four years, the high-powered group has waded into the implications of WikiLeaks for intelligence sharing, and urged retooling of Americas spy agencies as the United States withdraws...

    So far, tablets based on Intel Atom system-on-chips have not managed to gain popularity on the market mainly due to rather high prices as well as scarce availability. However, this is going to change with Intel Corp.s next-generation Atom ValleyView microprocessors and Bay Trail-T platforms. According to chief executive of Intel, next-gen tablets will cost $150 or even less. We believe what [Bay Trail platforms] really does it allows us to get into these markets that we are not in, in a big way today. [There will be] tablets [at] $199 and below, some you are going to see...

    A couple of weeks ago, the British government found itself under considerable fire at home for their connection to the NSA’s PRISM program. A number of MPs demanded answers from David Cameron’s Tory government about whether British intelligence was bypassing UK law in order to spy on its subjects by having the NSA collect the data from their Internet for them. At the time, I wondered whether the Brits were doing the same for the NSA on their own, comparing it to the Hitchcock thriller Strangers on a Train, with its famous “criss cross” murder plot (or the more humorous...

We had to get them interested to the point that they cared. The youth of America, it's their future. The youth vote, that mattered as much as anything,whoever got the youth vote was...

    The run up to Computex has been insane. Kabini, Haswell and Iris hit us back to back to back, not to mention all of the travel before receiving those products to get briefed on everything. Needless to say, we're in major catchup mode. There's a lot more that I wanted to do with Haswell desktop that got cut out due to Iris, and much more I wanted to do with Iris that I had to scrap in order to fly out to Computex. I will be picking up where I left off later this month, but with WWDC, Samsung and...

    In his big speech the other day, President Obama said, Much of our best counterterrorism cooperation results in the gathering and sharing of intelligence. And much of the gathering and sharing results in nothing. The Woolwich butcher was deported from Kenya on suspicion of terrorism and captured on video calling for the beheading of British soldiers but that didnt prevent him beheading a British soldier. Just as Tamerlan Tsarnaev was brought to the US Governments attention by the Russians, but that didnt prevent him blowing up the Boston Marathon. And the Pantybomber was fingered by his own dad to the...
