The US government is cracking down on Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Company – a Chinese DRAM manufacturer that allegedly stole Micron trade secrets worth $9 billion. The Department of Commerce has outright banned US companies from supplying the memory manufacturer with any goods, and, if that wasn’t bad enough, both Jinhua and its DRAM partner UMC have also been formally indicted by the US Department of Justice, too. The US government believes the Chinese integrated circuit company “poses a significant risk of becoming involved in activities that are contrary to the national security interests of the United States”. What it all boils down to is a suspicion that the company stole top secret plans and technologies from US-based semiconductor manufacturer Micron. Jinhua was involved in an R&D project alongside UMC, the Taiwan United Microelectronics Corp., that began back in May 2016 – supposedly just after the time when Micron’s plans … [Read more...] about Economic espionage, a $9bn PDF, and a US goverment indictment… who says PC memory is boring?

Nintendo Labo’s blueprint patterns are now available for free, online, through Nintendo itself — but remember that Labo requires more than just cardboard to work as designed. Software, of course, is needed to govern the Joy-Con controllers’ behavior when playing around with creations like the fishing rod or the RC car. The patterns are mainly useful as replacement parts for those who mutilate the original cardboard cutouts or, down the line, wear out their creations. This video (below) is a good look at what goes into preparing a Nintendo Labo cardboard toy and how they’re operated. Construction time for most toys is measured in hours — and the more complicated the toy (like that piano) the longer it will take. Anyway, download ‘em, print ‘em, lay ‘em over a piece of cardboard and cut them out, voila, Labo spare parts. The .pdfs are also a tip-off for how intricate these Labo creations are and how much work may be necessary for them. … [Read more...] about Nintendo Labo templates are now available for spare parts

For the first time in 2018, Destiny 2's mysterious merchant, Xur, has arrived in-game. As always, he has a selection of Exotic gear for sale in return for Legendary Shards, along with two of the other items he recently began selling. Below, we've laid out exactly where to find Xur and what he's offering up this week--and you won't need to own Curse of Osiris to pick up any of it.For this appearance, Xur can be found on Io. To reach him, you'll want to spawn in at the Giant's Scar Landing Zone and jump on your sparrow. Head straight and just to the right, through the opening of the structure in front of you, and then follow the path to the left a short ways. Xur is just up the hill on the left, inside an otherwise nondescript cave.In terms of what he's selling, as usual he has the Three of Coins, which boosts your likelihood of receiving an Exotic drop for four hours.
