Would Apple actually consider buying GoPro? It seems like a ridiculous question except, as MarketWatch informs us, GoPro’s stock has actually jumped recently on speculation that the company might get bought out by Cupertino.

Austrian High Court to Rule on Class Action Status in Facebook Privacy Case

The Austrian Supreme Court will consider whether a suit against Facebook Ireland can proceed as a class action. Austrian privacy activist Max Schrems brought the suit to challenge the transfer of private data to Facebook’s European subsidiary in Ireland. The Vienna Court of Appeals previously had ruled that the suit could be filed locally, as Schrems’ claim fell under local privacy laws there. However, the court also ruled that the case could not be filed as a class action. Now both sides in the action have filed appeals.

Why You Should Still Care About Moore's Law

Ironically, the greater IT accomplishments become, the harder they are to see. Consider Intel’s latest achievement: the new Broadwell architecture that shrank microprocessor manufacturing from the previous generation 22nm Haswell process to 14nm. Since a nanometer is a millionth of a millimeter — a human hair is about 100,000nm thick — you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference without an electron microscope. Practically speaking, though, Broadwell increases the number of transistors Intel can squeeze onto a microprocessor by a third.
