El tema de China versus el mundo agarra un nuevo antecedente, y es que la surcoreana Samsung ha cerrado una de sus fábricas de móviles más importantes en dicho país. Según Reuters, las operaciones de esta planta han cesado dada la fuerte competencia que le ponen los rivales en ese mercado, donde es prácticamente imposible llevarles el ritmo. Desde hace no mucho que el área de móviles de Samsung solo ha ido a la baja en China, a pesar de mostrar síntomas positivos en otras regiones y posicionarse como el número uno a nivel mundial en la materia...

* IRS Not Yet Ready to Move to Linux Due to Its Own Errors*

* IRS Not Yet Ready to Move to Linux Due to Its Own Errors*
The migration to Linux embraced by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has hit major roadblocks, many caused by what an audit describes as poor IT governance. According to a plan announced in 2014, the IRS intended to move a total of 141 legacy applications to Linux operating systems, hoping that it could save millions of dollars by embracing open-source alternatives. In fact, estimates offered by the IRS before beginning the transition to Linux pointed to savings of up to $12 million over the next five years for just one system, all thanks to reduced costs with licensing fees. And while it all sounded like an easy migration to Linux, the process takes substantially more time, with only eight of all applications transitioned to open-source systems until February 2018...

AMD Ryzen 3000 Series CPUs: Rumors, Release Date, All We Know
The arrival of AMD’s 1000-series Ryzen processors (like the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X) revitalized the processor market in ways we couldn’t have imagined just a few years ago, forcing Intel to become more competitive across the full breadth of its product stack. But that was just the beginning of AMD’s assault with its new Zen-based chips. Last year AMD moved from its original 14nm chips to the 2000-series 12nm Ryzen processors (like the Ryzen 7 2700X) that come wielding the Zen+ microarchitecture...
