Doc to NBA: Adjust schedule to protect product

9:30 AM ET LOS ANGELES — Although his Clippers team was the beneficiary of the Cavaliers‘ decision to rest LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love on Saturday night, trouncing Cleveland’s reserves 108-78, coach Doc Rivers said that the NBA needs to address the “back-to-back” scheduling of nationally broadcast games. “We have to protect our product,” Rivers said. “It’s hard.

Apple releases a $299 book of product designs dedicated to Steve Jobs

Apple’s hottest new product is a $ 299 book that features photos of its past products. “Designed by Apple in California” begins with the 1998 iMac that jumpstarted Apple’s turnaround, and it ends with the 2015 Apple Pencil, a stylus for the iPad Pro.

SK Hynix adds HBM2 to its product stack, plans Q3 availability

When AMD and Nvidia announced their product refreshes this year, both companies chose to stick with GDDR5 or GDDR5X for their respective GPUs. For AMD, this was a straightforward business decision — High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) is too expensive for the $ 100 – $ 240 segment that the company’s Polaris GPU targets, while Nvidia opted for GDDR5X since HBM2 wasn’t ready yet. A recent update from SK Hynix makes it clear that HBM2 is tiptoeing towards launch, with availability expected as soon as Q3 of this year. According to ...
