Radeon Graphics: The Move To PolarisFebruary 3, 2018
Over the last few years, AmigaDeveloper.com Team member Hans De Ruiter has been working steadfastly on keeping the Enhancer Software in pace with the hardware developments of AMD’s latest Radeon graphics cards.Since the first Enhancer Software release in 2016, there have been fourteen updates to the RadeonHD driver. The driver has been expanded to support the exciting Warp3D Nova system and to be compatible with many more Radeon graphics cards running the Oland chipset.AMD are continually updating the range of cards available and using newer more advanced chipsets. To keep the Enhancer Software in pace of AMD’s advancements, we have had to significantly invest in more development.In retail channels of late, the Southern Islands cards are now no longer available with the exception of Oland based R7 240 variants. Such is the relentless march of technology in the wider computing world that the AmigaDeveloper.com team need to keep afoot of.

BBM – What Changed This Week and Why.
First, to our very loyal users we are sorry for any confusion this week. Thank you for being patient and allowing us to set the record straight on the details and user impact necessitated by the coming split of BBM into three separate services: BBM Enterprise for all devices; BBM Consumer for BBOS and BB10; and BBM Consumer for Android, iOS and Microsoft devices.Why We Are Making Changes: For several years, BBM has been serving two very distinct and different audiences: enterprise customers, many of whom require military-grade security for their text, voice and video conversations; and consumer users interested in a free service that offers sticky features like games, shopping, music, news, payments and more.

BlackBerry will team up with automotive company Delphi to provide some much needed support for self-driving cars — but the project won’t have anything to do with old-school smartphone service. The two companies signed a commercial working partnership that will bring BlackBerry’s QNX operating system to Delphi’s self-driving car platform. BlackBerry’s auto OS is already found in infotainment centers from several carmakers, most notably Ford’s Sync system. The partnership will bring the QNX OS to Delphi’s proposed Centralized Sensing Localization and Planning (CSLP) platform, which the company calls a “fully integrated automated driving solution,” slated for release in 2019. Delphi hopes to offer the CSLP platform to automakers that don’t develop their own autonomous system as an aftermarket self-driving option.

The Aircraft for Everyone Lilium enables you to travel 5 times faster than a car by introducing the world’s first all-electric vertical take-off and landing jet: an air taxi for up to 5 people. You won’t have to own one, you will simply pay per ride and call it with a push of a button. It’s our mission to make air taxis available to everyone and as affordable as riding a car.

Well, hot-diggity-damn, BlackBerry’s KEYone is one hell of a comeback Much, much more than a nostalgia trip 28 Apr 2017 at 13:02, Andrew Orlowski 24-Hour Test The hottest phone in town this week isn’t the new Samsung but, improbably, BlackBerry’s comeback device. Partly this is a quirk of a staggered rollout by TCL, which has awarded the UK virtual exclusivity for a month before the US gets it. But it’s not entirely down to production issues. After 24 hours with the KEYone as a main phone, I’ll stick
