Bugs in Qualcomm's 64-bit Snapdragon 810 may force Samsung to use its own Exynos chips in Galaxy S6

A new report claims that Samsung has decided against using Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 810 Application Processor in its next flagship smartphone due to overheating issues, and will instead be forced use its own internally developed (and significantly slower) Exynos chip instead.

Android L 64-bit preview finally released – but only for x86. Where’s ARMv8, Google?

Android cakepops/lollipops
After announcing that Android L would support 64-bit hardware way back in June, Google has finally released a 64-bit Android L developer preview emulator image. Curiously, though, it’s a 64-bit image for 64-bit Intel chips (Atom/Bay Trail) and not ARM. With Nvidia’s 64-bit Tegra K1 supposedly just around the corner, but no tools for developers to actually create or prepare 64-bit ARMv8 apps, what exactly is going on?

64-bit Chrome finally available to download: Faster, more secure, twice as stable

Chrome logo - Full
At long last, Google has released a stable 64-bit version of Chrome for Windows. It’s faster, more secure, and more stable. Some tasks, such as decoding HD video on YouTube, are 15% faster under the 64-bit version of Chrome. The only major caveat seems to be a lack of support for 32-bit NPAPI plug-ins — Silverlight and Java, and lots of lesser-known plug-ins, won’t work on 64-bit Chrome. That’s a small price to pay for increased speed, security, and twice the stability of 32-bit Chrome, though.
