    Good quote: Mark Twain on North Korea
    • The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.

    Capitalism: Wafers prices to rise following GPU, NAND, RAM and MOSFET
    • This thing becoming like falling dominoes.

      International semiconductor wafer prices, due to tight supply and strong demand, are expected to increase 20% in 2018 from the level at year-end 2017, according Doris Hsu, chairwoman of GlobalWafers.

      The 12-inch segment will see the worst shortages, Hsu said. GlobalWafers has received orders occupying all its capacity through 2018 and its 16 plants worldwide will have to run 365 days in the year, she noted, adding it will increase capacity mainly for 12- and 8-inch wafers by about 7% through removing manufacturing bottlenecks in May-July 2018.

      It seems like system starting to collapse slowly as all investments went to heating by bitcoin mining

    Messangers war has begun
    • Apple has removed Telegram’s official app from its iOS App Store. The app disappeared yesterday, shortly after Telegram launched a rewritten Telegram X app for Android. Telegram X is currently in testing on iOS, and it was also removed from the App Store. “We were alerted by Apple that inappropriate content was made available to our users and both apps were taken off the App Store,” says Telegram CEO Pavel Durov. “Once we have protections in place we expect the apps to be back on the App Store.”

      Suddenly, strangely, Apple realized that users can send to each other some inappropriate remarks and photos. My god!

      Actually it is no more than excuse, similar to ones that Goggle made destroying all free SSL competition.

      Both of companies are long time danger to humanity and must be fully destroyed to the roots.

    Mergers: Fujifilm buys Xerox for $6.1 billion
    • Japan’s Fujifilm Holdings is set to take over Xerox Corp in a $6.1 billion deal, combining the U.S. company into their existing joint venture to gain scale and cut costs amid declining demand for office printing.

      The acquisition announced on Wednesday comes as Xerox has been under pressure to find new sources of growth as it struggles to reinvent its legacy business amid waning demand for office printing. Fujifilm is also trying to streamline its copier business with a larger focus on document solutions services.

      Consolidation of R&D, procurement and other operations would enable Fuji Xerox to deliver at least $1.7 billion in total cost savings by 2022, the two companies said.

      Fujifilm now owns 75 percent of Fuji Xerox, the joint venture going back more than 50 years ago which sells photocopying products and services in the Asia-Pacific region.

      The companies will close some Fuji Xerox factories and cut north of 10,000 jobs by 2020, largely in the Asia Pacific region.

      The combined company will keep the Fuji Xerox name and become a subsidiary of Fujifilm, with dual headquarters in the United States and Japan, and listed in New York. It will be led by Xerox CEO Jeff Jacobson, while Fujifilm CEO Shigetaka Komori will serve as chairman.

    Cryptocurrency Scam: TSMC love it
    • Taiwan semiconductor firms will see major revenue boosts from the global cryptocurrency mining craze in 2018, as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has landed sizable orders from Bitmain, China's leading Bictoin ASIC designer, for fabricating mining chips, while Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) and TSMC-affiliated Global Unichip have shared the backend packaging and testing orders, according to industry sources.

      At the moment, China's Bitmain, Canaan Creative, and Ebang Communication are the world's top-3 suppliers of Bitcoin mining solutions in terms of shipments, with Bitmain alone commanding a 70% share of the global market for such miners.

      Bitmain's orders are enough to occupy 90% of TSMC's ASIC foundry capacity during off-peak season, with the remaining 10% booked by Canaan Creative. Bitmain's orders amount to 100,000 wafers monthly at TSMC, serving as a significant driver for the foundry house's revenue growth in 2018, the sources indicated.

      Meanwhile, ASE and Global Unichip are also ready to fulfill orders from the two China customers for backend services. In addition, Taiwan suppliers of graphic cards including Asustek, Micro-Star International (MSI) and Gigabyte are also expected to benefit from the brisk market demand for such cards to support GPU-based mining machines in the first quarter of 2018, and they are moving to raise quotes for such cards, the sources added.

      Whole line of parasites formed to participate in transforming useful energy into shit.
