Spotify: 455% of growth of CA, but of the losses…

Spotify a nice boost its revenue, it is still not profitable. The threshold of profitability could be achieved in the current year ...

Spotify Logo.PNG

On its fiscal 2010, we learn that Spotify - listening service for online music - has increased its turnover by 5.5, from 13 to 72.2 million euros. Logical situation given that the European leader in streaming music has continued to curb its offer free ad-supported push for its paid subscriptions (over 2 million customers). This does not prevent Spotify to lose money. In spite of this explosion of sales, losses are higher for the year 2010 than they were in 2009, to 30.3 million euros against 19 million a year earlier.

Among the main expenditure Spotify, there are copyright by the company paid to beneficiaries in order to exploit their catalogs. But also investments to deploy the Spotify offers out of Europe alone, with the aim to establish itself also in the United States. Two budget items too large to allow Spotify to generate profits for now. Profits referred to by the company on the current fiscal year, thanks to the partnership signed with Facebook that promises to swell the ranks of subscribers Spotify. A strategy that seems to work, entries that exploded following the recent f8 conference.

Ubuntu 11.10 of exit. The distrib' touches ARM…

Ubuntu is ready for deployment of version 11.10. The server side, there is the appearance (in preview for now) support ARM. What open new perspectives to the Linux distribution ...


Tomorrow Thursday, October 13, Canonical released version 11.10 - also known as the Oneiric Ocelot - its Ubuntu Linux distribution. A version that marks most support (a first!) Of the ARM architecture by the free operating system in the server version of Ubuntu 11.10, as a Technology Preview. Unity, the user interface, supports both the ARM and Canonical idea is to encourage the market entry of low-power devices, including tablets, at prices more aggressive.

This is not the only good news side, which Canonical announced a few days ago having spent a significant partnership with HP. Indeed, the giant will use Ubuntu as main operating system regarding its upcoming Cloud, deployed via the open-source platform OpenStack.

Ubuntu 11.10 will be available directly on the usual site, downloads section, in a few hours. The next major release (long-term supported) to Ubuntu 4.12 which will be code-named "Pangolin Precise." It is not expected before 2012.

With Memristor, HP wants to kill the SSD and the RAM to join together them in the same module…

With memristor, HP anticipates the future of memory. An ideal solution with large storage capacity of flash memory and access speed of RAM ...

HP is working with Hynix memory specialist, a new hybrid device called Memristor. If it is not expected before 2013, we learn that it would be as fast as the DRAM and thus more efficient than flash memory. Memristor could therefore eventually sign the end of the SSD or flash memory implemented in mobile devices as we know them today.

Memristor offer because the performance of DRAM with the amount of storage space SSD while allowing energy savings. The SSD-killer would be developed in the laboratories of HP already has at least four years and is not yet fully developed. This alternative to conventional DRAM array is similar to the ReRAM (Resistive or RAM) and may even overshadow the SRAM, the SRAM.


17 memristor seen by electron microscopy ...

In practice, it is to superimpose up to 500 billion "memristor" using micro-layers of conductive films with a thickness of only 5 nm. HP, which is still working its process, consider lifting the veil on this new solution in about a year and a half.

Stanley Williams, an executive at HP, had already suggested that the idea was to design products to replace the SSD and RAM today. That entices our curiosity, even though we will obviously take our troubles patiently to find out more ...

Scythian launches its Big Shuriken 2

Scythe has just launched in Europe's Big Shuriken 2. The new cooler from the Japanese manufacturer is 125 x 135 x 58 mm and weighs 410 g. It is designed around five copper heat pipes that remove heat from the base in contact with the processor to the many aluminum fins.

A fan PWM Slip Stream 120 mm completes the picture. It will run between 500 and 2000 rev / min, between 12.13 and 45.47 charge CFM, and will issue between 9.32 and 33.67 dB. This cooler is compatible with sockets AMD AM2/AM2 + / AM3/AM3 + / LGA775/1155/1156/1366 FM1 and Intel. It seems perfect for home theater PCs, thin and computers in general.

Windows 8: -30% of consumption in RAM!

With its new OS, Windows 8, Microsoft also has to focus on the optimization scaling back the hardware requirements ...Windows 8 Windows Store

Bill Karagounis, teammate of Team 8, Microsoft Windows, released a note on the consumption of system RAM. There has in particular the efforts by Microsoft to make Windows 8 or less RAM intensive than is Windows 7.

A small puzzle according to him, since it takes "to succeed in setting up an advanced interface and richer while decreasing resource consumption." The efforts in a comprehensive, Microsoft aiming to scale back the hardware requirements of the OS with this new version.

And if Microsoft is so hard to Windows 8 uses little RAM, it is also because the system is designed to be compatible - Platform ARM - with touch pads which are not as well endowed with RAM traditional PCs. Thus, Windows 8 will offer several beautiful interfaces including Metro enriched with "tiles dynamic", it will remain fluid and not grab all available memory.

According to early returns and tests known cold-launched on the same machine, Windows 8 consume 281 MB RAM 404 MB for Windows against 7. And the constant minimum CPU load would rise from 5% to 1%. This shows the optimization efforts made ??by Microsoft. A check with the release of Windows 8 in final

Intel updates four of its mobile chips, revising upward their operating frequencies.

intel logo

Intel will introduce four new standards in its line of mobile processors. The new Pentium 967 is probably the most interesting, since it will attempt to compete with some APU "E Series" AMD (Brazos platform). It replaces the Pentium 957, with a rate review for the dual-core low power consumption of 1.2 to 1.3 GHz and 800 MHz to 1 GHz for the graphics Intel HD. A processor with 2 MB cache, which has a TDP of only 17 W.

It also hosts the Pentium B960 B950 which replaces a dual-core with 2 MB cache, the frequency increases to 2.2 GHz while the GPU does not move (between 650 MHz and 1.1 GHz), all for a TDP of 35 W. While the Core i5 and i7-2430M-2670QM replace the previous models, respectively, by winning a coefficient (2.4 GHz and 3 GHz Turbo) and two coefficients (2.2 to 3.1 GHz). They still have 3 and 6 MB of cache and the Intel HD 3000 for graphics.

Now expected that Intel Announces Pricing of these "new" chip and integrates its listing for the manufacturers to incorporate them into their laptops.
