T4A: good point on the developing markets' importance and smartphone as the entry-level device; seems there's still potential: http://www.gallup.com/poll/168797/afric ... ile.aspxOn a sidenote, Continuum seems like an interesting play: http://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-an ... dows-phone

Yet even the developed world seems to be changing. Google is now seeing more people doing searches on mobile devices than on desktop devices in 10 countries including the US and Japan.

JavaScript rules the school, but C++ climbs in popularityQuoteC++ is making big gains in the monthly Tiobe language popularity index, while JavaScript continues to rule the day.The venerated C++ language has been Tiobe's biggest climber so far since July 2014, according to a report accompanying the July index. "Compared to last year, C++ gained more than 3.1 percent, leaving Java (plus 2 percent), C# (plus 1.6 percent) and Python (up 1.6 percent) behind," the report states. C++ has a rating of 8.641 percent in July, compared to 5.521 percent a year ago. Tiobe bases language popularity on a formula that assesses searches on languages on sites like Google, Wikipedia, and Bing.

Linus Speaks QuoteSo give up on parallelism already. It's not going to happen. End users are fine with roughly on the order of four cores, and you can't fit any more anyway without using too much energy to be practical in that space. And nobody sane would make the cores smaller and weaker in order to fit more of them - the only reason to make them smaller and weaker is because you want to go even further down in power use, so you'd still not have lots of those weak cores.

Do you agree/disagree with the quote? ;) :)He mentions the exceptions to the "parallelism is a crock" as being graphics and servers. But what if more and more applications become graphics-like (4k video, Oculus VR glasses, multifinger/gesture touch UIs, auto voice/image recognizing digital assistants) or server-like (end-users' devices become servers/hubs for the end-user's internet-of-things sensor networks)?At one level, he may be right. The biggest cores in the system are not going to get smaller and the number of big cores in the system will probably remain modest. But systems are (and will) be adding smaller cores both for low power (e.g., Apple's M-series coprocessor or the ARM's big.LITTLE architecture) and high performance (GPUs). In that regard, he may be wrong in that end-users will expect the kind of low-power and high-performance that's only possible with parallelism implemented in a very heterogenous set of cores.

http://semiengineering.com/the-week-in- ... eWorldwide PC shipments are expected to fall by 8.7% in 2015 and will not stabilize until 2017, according to International Data Corporation (IDC). The latest forecast has PC growth declining through 2016--which will make five years of declining shipments. Growth should resume in 2017, led by the commercial market, while consumer volume continues a small decline through the end of the forecast in 2019.According to IDC, tablet shipments, inclusive of 2-in-1 devices, are expected to decline 8% in 2015, representing a notable slowdown from IDC's previous forecast of minus 3.8%. Shipments are now expected to reach 212 million with the vast majority being pure slate tablets.According to IDC, smartphone shipments are expected to grow 10.4% in 2015 to 1.44 billion units. This is lower than IDC's previous smartphone forecast of 11.3% year-over-year growth in 2015. IDC expects to see a noticeable slowdown in smartphone shipments in 2015 as China joins North America and Western Europe in a more mature growth pattern.
