News from Intel that it expects Moore’s Law to last at least another decade, and give rise to 7nm and 5nm chips, was of interest to V3 readers last week, no doubt keen to peer into the future of computing.
Intel’s efforts to change technology will undoubtedly be welcomed, but work by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers to roll out new domains, specifically the controversial .sucks, has gone less well.
Last week the group was forced to turn to the US Federal Trade Commission for help investigating the behaviour of the registry running the domain, after a report alleged that it is operating in a "predatory manner". The firm, Vox Populi, has denied this.
Elsewhere in the market, Windows XP still shows no signs of disappearing. Data indicates that at least 17 percent of machines still run the OS, despite the one-year anniversary for support cut-off last week.
Microsoft will do all it can to rectify this later in the year. A recent update for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 contains code that will offer a free installation of Windows 10 for consumers when the new OS arrives.
