Memory takes its toll on computer design

29 Jul 2016 by Chris Edwards

Professor Mark Horowitz of Stanford University has a simple lesson for what is going to guide the design of computers, from servers down to tiny processors sitting inside sensors, into the future. His talk at the recent Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Austin, Texas boiled down to "it's all about the memory". It's a lesson that's likely to have a major effect on ARM's future it tries to pay back on SoftBank's £24bn bet.

UK tech and science communities scramble after Brexit vote

28 Jul 2016 by Pelle Neroth

Making the best of it seems to be the signal emerging from the London tech community about the Brexit vote. There is talk of turning "adversity into opportunity" and mustering the entrepreneurial spirit that made them successes in the first place. Fintech channels the spirit of Dunkirk. Or maybe the Battle of Britain.

15 Jul 2016 by Vitali Vitaliev

The Brexit Fallout

14 Jul 2016 by Dickon Ross

Industry is still reeling from the UK's referendum vote to leave the European Union, now known worldwide as the Brexit. It's hard to recall a more eventful few weeks in British or European politics and the financial markets have been all over the place, but the most important legacy will be what long-term effects it has on the economy and business in the UK and beyond.

Sorry, I have no answers either...

25 Jun 2016 by Paul Dempsey

The signature British response to a crisis is (1) sleep on it, (2) make a cup of tea, (3) roll up those sleeves and 'get it sorted'. But that isn't going to work this time, is it? After the referendum's 'Leave' victory, there has been plenty of talk about bringing the nation together but, admittedly viewed from a distance, the task seems insurmountable.

Stand Aside Bill Gates

9 Jun 2016 by Justin Pollard

Having a wonderful idea and making any money out of it can be two very different things, as many an engineer can be heard muttering. Almost by definition, creating something revolutionary means there's not yet a ready market for it and most people won't understand it. A lesser engineer might give up, but Al Gross just kept engineering the modern world, whether he got properly paid and whether we liked it or not.

Smoking vs Vaping – the good and the bad – two contrasting infographics

27 Jul 2016

According to our good friends at, smoking costs the UK’s economy £12.9billion a year. That’s a staggering 11-figure sum (12, 900, 000, 000)!
