Apple Mac Pro

If you haven’t heard the news a couple of months ago Apple released its latest Mac Pro. It is a true power house, no one can disagree about that, but the most revolutionary aspect of it is the design. In this photo we have a top shot of the system without the external aluminium enclosure and the fan. The interesting aspect is that this is the full computer. You don’t need anything more in order to run your latest version of Macintosh. The system is highly upgradable too, despite that this is an Apple product! Engineering at its best!

Qualcomm: Making CPU’s

Travis Lanier, director of CPU product management, discusses in detail what goes inside Snapdragon processors and sets them apart from the competition.

All of them resulting in a highly optimized chip. Yes! It is a little bit hard core hardware terms and design but these are actually part of my real job! Enjoy!
