MediaTek, the popular Taiwanese mobile chipmaker, is reportedly planning to release 10-core or 12-core mobile CPUs in 2015.
According to Chinese blog Mydrivers, an insider of the mobile phone industry has revealed that MediaTek is developing mobile processors with more than 8 cores - could be 10 or even 12 cores, and if everything works out well, then the new multi-core processor will be up for release in 2015.
To remind you, MediaTek had released the 64-bit architecture processors last year, which includes the octa-core MT6795, MT6752, and MT6732 . The MediaTek MT6795 operates on frequency of 2.2GHz, and has been reported that the SoC will debut with HTC's upcoming flagship One (M9) aka HTC Hima .
The MediaTek MT6795 SoC features the company's new CorePilot technology, which provides multi-processor performance and thermal control, as well as offers dual-channel LPDDR3 clocked at 933MHz in a smartphone.
With the ubiquity and easy access of porn these days, it shouldn't come as a surprise that people are beginning to study the effects of it on our sex lives. According to a website called projectknow.com, 420 million web pages are dedicated to porn, meaning the non-porn Internet roughly consists of..well, Wikipedia. Scientists at Cambridge University recently studied the brain scans of porn addicts and found that they looked exactly like those of drug addicts. With such an inexhaustible supply of porn at our disposal, there is a growing concern that it is beginning to effect our brains, our relationships, and even our bodies (beyond, of course, your mother's idle threats of blindness and hairy palms). A recent survey of a Reddit community called NoFap, which is committed to abstaining from porn and masturbation, has helped researchers open the door to a better understanding of the effects of pornography on our lives. While none of the results are conclusive, there are certainly some statistics that should give a moment's pause. Here are some of the highlights of why it may be a good idea to stick to Netflix next time you open up your laptop:
1. For those addicted to porn, arousal actually declined with the same mate, while those who regularly found different mates were able to continual their arousal. It's known as the Coolidge Effect, or novelty-seeking behavior. Porn, after all, trains the viewer to expect constant newness.
2. One in five people who regularly watch porn admitted to feeling controlled by their own sexual desires.
3. 12 percent of NoFappers report watching 5 or more hours of Internet porn every week. 59 percent report watching between 4 and 15(!!) hours of porn every week.
4. Almost 50 percent of those on NoFap have never had sex in their lives, meaning their only experience with intimacy is purely digital.
5. 42 percent of male college students report visiting porn sites regularly.
6. 53 percent of the NoFappers developed a regular porn habit between the ages of 12 and 14. An alarming 16 percent said they started watching before they were 12.
7. 64 percent report that their tastes in porn have become more extreme or deviant.
8. Among 27-31 year olds on NoFap: 19 percent suffer from premature ejaculation, 25 percent are disinterested in sex with their partner, 31 percent have difficulty reaching orgasm, and 34 percent experience erectile dysfunction.
9. After committing to no masturbation/porn, 60 percent of those on NoFap felt that their sexual functions had improved.
10. And 67 percent had an increase in energy levels as well as productivity.
So there it is men. While the evidence may not be scientifically thorough, there's certainly enough to suggest that porn has a negative impact on our lives. It might be a good time to give that overworked hand some rest, or, at the very least, use it to dial the phone number of a real live human woman and ask her out on a date.
The rumor mill on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 is running at full speed. Although disappointingly no official word was heard at the recent CES 2015 , Business Insider reports that the future flagship will indeed come in both regular and edge flavors. The successor to the Galaxy S5 will mark yet another step in Samsung's gradual move to a more premium build, with confirmation yet to come whether that will mean a true unibody or aluminum accents.
Hardware will most likely be region-dependent, but with the never-ending rumors of Qualcomm’s problems with the Snapdragon 810, all versions may get the in-house Exynos 7420 chipset, paired with 3GB of RAM. Previously speculated at 5.5 inches, it won't be surprising if the Galaxy S6 ends up closer to 5.2-5.3 inches, which makes sense, so as not to step on the Galaxy Note 4 toes.
Following much criticism, Samsung abandoned the all-plastic bodies with the Alpha lineup and the latest Galaxy Note 4, and the Galaxy series will follow suit. We will also be treated to a dual edge screen version, building on the Note Edge ’s hype. The speculated unibody of the regular Galaxy S6 will however result in the loss of the beloved replaceable battery, that’s been a strong selling point of the lineup.
The release is due to take place at the Mobile World Congress in March in Barcelona where the smartphone will allegedly be accompanied by a new round smartwatch, Moto 360 style.
