    Intel Acquires Mobileye

    Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) acquires Mobileye (NYSE:MBLY) for $63.54 per share. The company says the $15.3B deal will position it as a leading technology provider in the autonomous vehicle industry, seen as a $70B market by 2030. INTC -1.61% premarket to $35.33. MBLY +33.30% to $63.01. Sources: http://seekingalpha.com/pr/16768758-intel-acquire-mobileye and http://seekingalpha.com/news/3250566-intel-confirms-acquisition-mobileye What do you think about Intel's latest step into the autonomous vehicle industry?
  2. Alright so here is where I am at. For a my teacher gave us a topic to do a project on and no other rubric and wanted us to "surprise him" with our projects. So I decided to create a forum website. Now here is where I am at, today at school I go to the site and it is blocked on their network. I talked to the IT guy this morning and he said he has to talk to the superintendent of schools before anything can get done..... I have to present this later today so I thought I'll just download the site locally and pull it up that way. I did this using full website backup tool with cpanel then I downloaded the backup and unzipped it using winrar. However I cannot figure out how to actually open the site locally from those files. The public_html file is not saved as a .HTML but instead as a folder. How can I open this backup locally??
  3. I couldn't find any comparisons between these two, but I was wondering how much of an improvement in games, if any, the i3 6100 would give me. My current GPU is a GTX 950 and it sits at about around 50% usage while my current CPU (5600k) is at 100% usage. Would an i3 6100 remove this bottlenecking in games like Arma 3?

    Laptop under $1000

    Any suggestions on a laptop for under $1000 USD? I am looking for it to hold up to 4 years of college so a solid build quality is a must. I am not looking to do gaming on it, however would appreciate a small graphics card so in 4 years the laptop won't feel sluggish in graphics intensive tasks. Also battery has to be able to last a day of note taking and web browsing. I prefer the feel of a laptop over a 2in1 or tablet like a surface. Thanks for your suggestions!

    CS:GO Error

    I would not waste everyone's time by posting this if I knew I had hacks installed that could be the problem.

    CS:GO Error

    I got a new gaming laptop today, and went to play some CS:GO. While trying to join a competitive match I got the error "Matchmaking failed: your connection to matchmaking servers is not reliable." I then ran a test on speedtest.net and got a ping of 17, down of 85mbps and upload of 82mbps, a connection that is more than enough for CS:GO. I then tired validating the cache for the game through steam, running the game as admin, reinstalling the game, trying ethernet and wireless, and turning off my firewall. I can run the game fine, and have been running the game fine on my desktop for about a year now and have never once got this issue. My desktop is on the same internet connection. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Good Laptop for school/gaming?

    $700 USD max.
  9. I was looking for a laptop that is small and portable enough for school, while still able to run games like CSGO smoothly. I also do editing in Premiere and After Effects. I came across this one http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/y700-series/y700-14-inch/#SYSTEM and it was the best I could find in the price range. If you have any other suggests let me know. Otherwise I think I will go with this.

    Budget Build for a Friend

    Yes, he does lots of video editing and is into photography. He will need the storage. Also I can change the board, Z board is pointless for a non-overclockable chip.
