Intel is preparing to spoil everyone else’s fun

Intel vs ARM

Intel, comfortably the largest manufacturer of desktop processors, is no stranger to throwing its weight around to protect its core business. It has spent years fighting a massive $1.2 billion fine from the EU for violating anti-trust law to shut out AMD, its only real competitor.

Now, in a new blog post, Intel seems to be quietly warning companies like Microsoft and Qualcomm not to even think about using emulation to run proper Windows 10 on mobile-style processors.

Apple’s fight with Qualcomm could hurt the iPhone 8

Apple Qualcomm lawsuit

Apple has been locked in a bitter dispute with Qualcomm, a major chip manufacturer that has historically supplied the wireless modems for the iPhone. According to a new report, Apple's legal dispute with Qualcomm is going to have an effect on iPhone 8 components, and Apple might have to substitute some Qualcomm chips with Intel components. Given the inferior quality of the Intel chips in last year's iPhone 7, that's not good news.

The iPhone 8 could be delayed by Apple’s battle with Qualcomm

iPhone 8 delay: Apple vs Qualcomm legal battle

Apple is currently engaged with an unusually harsh battle with Qualcomm, one of the key companies that designs internal components for the iPhone. Basttles between Apple and its suppliers normally don't last long: iPhone contracts are often the lifeblood of small suppliers, and losing Apple's business will put most companies out of business.

But Qualcomm, the manufacturer of the processor inside every Android phone worth talking about, is one of the few companies that can stand up to Apple. The two companies are currently engaged in a fight over patent licensing: Qualcomm wants Apple to pay it for its designs used inside the iPhone. Apple says that Qualcomm's demands for licensing the patent are unreasonable, and has instructed its manufacturers (like Foxconn) not to pay royalties to Qualcomm for the time being.

Qualcomm could be looking at banning iPhone imports into the U.S.

Qualcomm wants to block Apple from selling the iPhone in the US

iPhone Sales Qualcomm

Apple's legal dispute with Qualcomm over iPhone royalty payments just got kicked up a notch. According to a report from Bloomberg, Qualcomm is planning to file a motion asking the International Trade Commission (ITC) to prevent Apple from importing the iPhone into the United States. Though not a household name, the ITC is a federal agency responsible for ensuring fair trade practices and, in turn, it holds the power to completely ban imports of certain products.

The Galaxy S8’s processor is powerful enough to run Windows

Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 on Windows 10 PCs

Don’t get too excited about installing Windows 10 on the Galaxy S8 just yet, although you can run a virtualized Windows 10 desktop on the phone using the DeX accessory seen in the image above. However, the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform that powers Samsung’s phone will also power Windows 10 devices later this year. The chipmaker confirmed that Windows 10 devices based on the Snapdragon 835 system-on-a-chip (SoC) will be available in stores in the fourth quarter.
