<p>Jay also pointed me to this article giving details on the ArcaBoard on the Tom’s Guide website. It seems that Jay is not convinced; as he said in his email to me: <i>There is absolutely no way those motors are 7.5hp each. If they were, that would be the revolutionary innovation. Even if they used superconductors, I don’t see those kinds of numbers working out. Also way over-priced, but those batteries will be expensive.”</i></p>

The goal is to create the next Fitbit, GoPro or Beats Audio that creates a company with the heft to launch its own IPO or attract a billion-dollar acquisition from an Apple or Google. While Hax fuels such ambitions, it has also started a small effort in biotech with a wet lab in the basement of its Shenzhen headquarters.

The BMW Group aims to be not only the leading, but also the most sustainable, premium provider of individual mobility. We therefore pursue a policy of comprehensive, group-wide environmental management. The company integrates environmental considerations into all its major investment decisions at an early stage, setting itself ambitious targets and using key environmental indicators to constantly track and monitor how it is performing,” Jury Witschnig, Teamleader for Sustainability and Environmental Protection at the BMW Group Headquarters in Munich told EE Times.

BMW also announced today that it had joined Obama’s American Business Act on Climate Pledge, making it the 154th company to pledge an ongoing commitment to averting climate change. BMW’s Chairman, Harald Krueger, said that besides adding business support to the ongoing COP21 negotiations this week, that BMW was committed for the long-term. For instance, through 2017 BMW will add $2.7 million to its partnership with Argonne National Laboratory to improve Li-Ion batteries, bringing to $10 million its U.S. investments over the last three years to improve EV batteries. And by 2020 BMW–already on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices every year since 1999–pledges to be the leading automobile manufacturer in the use of renewable energy in production and value creation.”

SAN FRANCISCO—A public-private partnership for clean energy research and development kicked off the United Nations conference on climate change (COP21) in Paris today. Philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates announced that he would donate $2 billion over the next five years to the newly formed Mission Innovation.

The Mission Innovation clean tech initiative will commit governments and private investors to boost their investments in clean energy technology by 2020. It may be the highlight of COP21, where more than 190 countries will negotiate a global agreement to combat climate change and improve access to clean energy technology.

What we’re asking ourselves to do here is change energy—and that includes all of transport, all of electricity, all of household usage, and all of industrial usage. And those are all huge areas of usage,” Gates told The Atlantic. In energy, no government—including the U.S., which is in almost every category the big R&D funder—has really made a dramatic increase.”

Last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change declared that scientists were 95% certain that global warming is being caused by increasing concentrations of man-made greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. Most of these gases are being produced by electrical power plants and internal combustion engines, EE Times earlier reported.

To writ, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States have joined the initative. According to a joint statement issued Nov. 30, investments will focus on transformational clean energy technology” that can scale to a variety of economies. Research and development projects will also be designed to attract private investors willing to advance commercialization.

The Mission Innovation statement highlighted contributions from the Breakthrough Energy Coalition – a roster of inventors from 10 countries that includes Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Gates, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson, and Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitmann, among others – which will bring unprecedented levels” of investment into early-stage technology development. While the Microsoft blog briefly details the company’s views on technology and climate change, it’s unclear how, if at all, it will be involved in Mission Innovation.

India, the world’s third-largest greenhouse gas emitter, has argued that developed countries must aid developing nation gain access to cleaner energy technologies. Reuters pointed to cost and intellectual property rights as barriers to India’s use of clean energy tech.

CHIPS 2020 Vol 2: New Vistas in Nanoelectronics looks at the state-of-the-art in nanoelectronics but its most significant finding is at the global scale; that unless changes are made the proliferation of nanoelectronics is set to produce blackout failures of the Internet by 2020 due to a lack of electrical power.

In short, the global population’s eagerness to get itself and everything it owns online is leading to a data explosion that is consuming 40 percent more power every year and the Internet’s power demand could soon rival the world’s available power resources.


Here we are. It is the sixth generation of Apple’s A-series Application Processor family: the A9.
