    Capitalism: Resistors follow NAND, DRAM and MOSFETs
    • Taiwan suppliers have implemented a 100% hike in quotes for some specs of resistors in serious supply shortfall. Nevertheless, local EMS and ODM customers have no other choice but to accept the price rises, as the hiked quotes are still lower than those offered by Japan supplier KOA and they can hardly find cheaper resistors from other sources.

      Jack Chung, president of Chilisin Electronics, a local supplier of chip resistors, said that the supply shortfall will not ease in the short term, and quotes are expected to rise further.

      Taiwan suppliers already raising quotes for their chip resistors reportedly include Ralec Electronic, Yageo, LIZ Electronics, Royal Electronic, Viking Tech and Walsin Technology.

      Industry sources said that chip resistors started to turn tight in the second half of 2017, as customers have since rushed to expand their stockpiles amid anticipations for possible price hikes.

    Mergers: Microchip buys Microsemi
    • Microchip Technology plans to acquire Microsemi Corp. for about $8.35 billion in cash.

      The combined company would have annual sales of about $5.8 billion, based on each firm's revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017.

      The acquisition would further an unprecedented run on large mergers and acquisitions in the semiconductor space. Though the total value of semiconductor industry acquisitions declined to about $27.7 billion last year from $107.3 billion in 2015 and $99.8 billion in 2016, according to market watcher IC Insights, the market remains hot for consolidation.

    Tor, CIA and NSA
    • I discovered that Tor was not a grassroots. I was able to show that despite its indie radical cred and claims to help its users protect themselves from government surveillance online, Tor was almost 100% funded by three U.S. National Security agencies: the Navy, the State Department and the BBG. Following the money revealed that Tor was not a grassroots outfit, but a military contractor with its own government contractor number. In other words: it was a privatized extension of the very same government that it claimed to be fighting.

      The documents conclusively showed that Tor is not independent at all. The organization did not have free reign to do whatever it wanted, but was kept on a very short leash and bound by contracts with strict contractual obligations. It was also required to file detailed monthly status reports that gave the U.S. government a clear picture of what Tor employees were developing, where they went and who they saw.

      The documents showed Tor employees taking orders from their handlers in the federal government, including plans to deploy their anonymity tool in countries that the U.S. was working to destabilize: China, Iran, Vietnam, Russia. They showed strategy sessions, discussions about the need to influence news coverage, and control bad press. They featured monthly updates that described meetings and trainings with the CIA, NSA, FBI, DOJ and State Department. They revealed plans to funnel government funding to run Tor "independent" nodes. Most shockingly, the FOIA documents put under question Tor's pledge that it would never put in any backdoors that gave the government secret privileged access to Tor's network under question.

    What actually sets Eneloop apart?
    • May be just capacity? Nope.

      or maximum output current? Nope.

      Eneloop different in how consistent its quality is.
      On how it can hold charge for long time.
      And how much times he can take charge without significant capacity drop.
