The United Kingdom's Competition and Markets Authority is probing the proposed acquisition of Intel's NAND and SSD businesses by SK Hynix. Regulators like the CMA usually investigate big transactions to ensure that they do not have any negative impact on local buyers and businesses. If the CMA believes that the takeover can somehow negatively affect customers in the U.K., it may slowdown the acquisition and make certain demands. At this point CMA is inviting concerned parties to comment on the proposed transaction between SK Hynix and Intel. The regulator expects to get the comments by May 11, when the phase 1 investigation is set to commence. "The CMA is considering whether it is or may be the case that this transaction, if carried into effect, will result in the creation of a relevant merger situation under the merger provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 and, if so, whether the creation of that situation may be expected to result in a substantial lessening of competition … [Read more...] about British Regulators May Slowdown SK Hynix Acquisition of Intel’s NAND Business

Amazon Prime Day 2021 isn’t set to arrive until June, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start embracing what we expect to be the retailer’s most exciting event to date with a little bit of harmless speculation. For starters, it’s safe to assume that Prime Day 2021 will see more discounts than ever before. How do we know? Because each Prime Day is bigger and better than the last — duh! So, Prime Day 2021. What’s it about? Well, it’s far too early to say with absolute certainty what we’ll see. Heck, we don’t even know for certain when it will be (though we have a pretty good idea — more on that in a bit). One thing is almost for certain, though: While Amazon will be at the heart of Prime Day 2021, other retailers will also be throwing their hats into the ring. What happened on Prime Day 2020? Before we can look forward to Prime Day 2021, we first need to look back to Prime Day 2020 — an anomaly in the history of the event. Amazon was left with no choice but to reschedule the … [Read more...] about Prime Day Deals 2021: When is it, and what can we expect?
We love Raspberry Pi cyberdecks, including all of the fun ways the community has contained our favorite SBC over the years and this project from Michael Torino joins our list of favorites. Torino began developing the Portable Threat & Security Device (PTSD for short) to keep busy during the early lockdowns of 2020. This project quickly snowballed into a quality network security rig capable of supporting a small facility on its own. According to Torino, the idea was to create an all-in-one device that could handle most network security and support needs without lugging additional "accessory cases" frequently found on the ground in military deployment. His solution was to install two Raspberry Pi 4s inside of a single Pelican V100 Pistol Case which measures in at just 12.7" x 12.6" x 5.5". The best Raspberry Pi projects use more than one Pi (because we can't get enough) and this project is no exception. One of the Pis is running Ubuntu while the other is … [Read more...] about Dual Raspberry Pi Device is a Cyberdeck for Network Security
