Birds Got Their Colorful, Speckled Eggs From Dinosaurs
The rainbow of hues seen in modern bird eggs probably evolved in birds’ dinosaur ancestors, which had eggs with colorful and speckled shells. That’s according to a new study of fossil eggs in the journal Nature. Researchers found that birds’ close dinosaur relatives had eggs with traces of two pigments—a red-brown one and a blue-green one. This same pair of pigments mixes and matches in today’s bird eggs to produce colors ranging from robin’s egg blue to red to yellow to green…

Hyundai and Kia will outfit their cars with solar panels
Solar panels on cars aren’t just reserved for luxury brands or experimental vehicles. Hyundai and Kia have laid out plans to equip “selected” cars with solar panels on their roofs or hoods. They’ll help charge batteries for electric vehicles and hybrids, but they’ll also be useful for combustion-only vehicles. You won’t have to settle for solar panels blocking your view of the sky above, either…

Rumor: AMD Epyc2 processors could get 64 cores over 8+1 dies
That AMD has been going insanely strong with many-core processors is not a surprise, you’ve read all our Threadripper reviews and have learned that the top tier processors (e.g. 32-core versions) have four dies each holding 8 CPU cores. So what does the future bring? Well, how do 64 cores over eight dies sound? The chatter at the moment is based on an 8+1 version block diagram spreading on the web, with 8 dies and 8-cores per die you are looking at 64 cores and 128 Threads. Obviously, that kind of design would apply towards AMD Epyc2 processors or even later revisions. The extra (middle) die is intended for a dedicated system controller chip…

The IBM/Red Hat Tango: Elephants can Dance Too — to the Tune of Open Source
You probably heard the news: IBM is buying open-source pioneer Red Hat for a whopping $34 billion, paying a 63% premium to the company’s open-market price stock. It represents the largest software acquisition in history—and, interestingly, is actually a bet on a small business inside Red Hat that IBM must think represents the future of technology…
