A fall in demand for desktop PCs and continued growth of the smartphone and tablet market saw AMD fall from second to fourth place for microprocessor sales in 2012. According to a new report from IC Insights, Qualcomm and Samsung overtook AMD to reach second and third spot respectively after they both posted year-on-year growth, thanks to increased sales of their ARM-based mobile processors. Intel continued to dominate the market — despite seeing a 1 percent decline last year.
A fresh release of Dish Anywhere for Android just hit Google Play, bringing it up to speed with its iOS counterpart. Now, the application allows users to stream On Demand content from wherever they have an internet connection, and adds Facebook and Twitter sharing. The experience has also received a dedicated app for tablets running Google’s mobile OS, sporting a look that makes better use of the extra screen real estate, and a skinned remote to boot. In addition to a few miscellaneous bug fixes, the update includes support for handsets with large screens, such as the Droid DNA. Jab the links below to grab ahold of the latest version.
Sprint was clearly hungry for capacity when it bought spectrum from US Cellular last fall, and it’s at last getting its fill — some of it, at least — by closing the deal today. The carrier has officially taken possession of 20MHz in airwaves across Midwestern cities like Champaign, Chicago and South Bend, as well as 10MHz in St. Louis. The customer handover isn’t quite as grandiose as was mentioned in November, however: Sprint is ultimately adopting 420,000 US Cellular customers, rather than the originally claimed 585,000. It should be a relatively bump-free transition, no matter who’s included in the group. Sprint expects the switch to take several months, and it’s keeping the US Cellular network active while customers go hunting for discounted phones.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it — or fix it, and then undo it all 50 years later. That’s what Olympus is doing with the new PEN E-P5, the company’s latest Micro Four Thirds camera, which looks for all the world like the PEN F from 1963. That’s a good thing, too: the silver and black, metal and leather styling is beautiful, and the camera feels dense and sturdy like any good camera should. It actually looks a lot like the Fujifilm X100S without a viewfinder – again, a very good thing.
Its body may look decades old, but the E-P5 is one of Olympus’ more advanced mirrorless cameras. Much of its technology is taken from the (also beautiful) OM-D E-M5, like the five-axis stabilization system and blistering fast autofocus. The E-P5′s…

This is a video of a group of Shaolin Warriors doing all sorts of kicks and punches and flips, all filmed in slow motion. Plus one of them breaks a metal bar over his head at the end. I’d hate to pull the short straw for that stunt. Honestly, I’d hate to pull the short straw on any stunt that involves my head. You only get one, and I’m already disappointed with the shape of it when I shave my hair short. You know how some people say ‘God broke the mold when he made you’? Well my mom says he was probably just low on clay when he made me.
Hit the jump for the video.

Question by Blue: What is the government plan when all jobs are taken over by robots? What will the humans do?
Well people say US is a service country now. A factory could be ran by robots. Almost any job can be replaced with robots. I am a programmer, studying Artificial intelligence and Stuff. Working on a website which will one day run it self. If someone abuse reports, the system decides. This site when done can be ran by just one person,Me, updating and adding more code. What will the government do when the US gets to a point where all jobs are done by robots? What will the humans do?
Answer by Jim Em
Well, it does seem we’ll need to figure out a way to keep the people in money and happy. Otherwise the robots will be killed off to save the country.
Sounds like Science Fiction? Not really.
