Intel's working on a system to secure self-driving cars
We have recently been bestowed with the newly formed idea of the self driving cars and we even saw one of the prototypes by Google into action. However, the prospect was seen more clearly when Google officially announced that it is working on an autonomous vehicle that excludes a steering wheel and pedals. Following this, we had Intel’s plans of supporting projects such as these and we can expect a research initiative which is going to explore how drivers interact with their cars and how to best protect connected vehicles from security threats.
Research initiative announcements don’t usually hold much important and we see them as ways for just staying in the new without having a solid announcement at hand. But considering the amount of investment done by Intel and the time spent on this project, we can say that their announcement has certainly been given more weight. In the near future, the company is also launching an In-Vehicle Solutions platform to reduce the cost of installing infotainment systems for manufacturers.
Kim Kardashian Leaked Photos Backlash
We have a new celebrity nude photo scandal this weekend. A hacker has published nude photos of Kim Kardashian and others on 4Chan. The internet seems though to have no sympathies for Kim Kardashian's violation of privacy.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
