One of the more intriguing (and if we’re being honest, slightly weird) rumors from last year was that AMD and Intel might cooperate on a GPU patent-sharing deal, or possibly a direct design agreement in which AMD would build GPUs for its largest competitor in the CPU space. The only reason we gave the idea any consideration at all was because AMD had reorganized its graphics unit into the Radeon Technology Group (RTG) specifically so that it could have more freedom to pursue ideas and potential revenue sources. A custom ...

3:07 AM ET SAN ANTONIO — When you’re 39 and a future Hall of Famer, not many firsts come your way anymore on the court; especially when you’re a four-time NBA champion in Year 15 of a career fast coming to a close. But in this case, Manu Ginobili‘s “first” snuffed out James Harden‘s last attempt at tying up Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals, preserving San Antonio’s 110-107 overtime victory.

Nissan Rogue Dogue SUV puts Fido first

The best seat in the Nissan Rogue SUV “Rogue Dogue”  special edition is the padded cargo compartment for carrying your dog comfortably.

Some of these things that look very much like ads have started showing up in File Explorer. Specifically, Windows 10 has started nagging people to buy ...

The Co-op Bank puts itself up for sale

The Co-op Bank says it is putting itself up for sale and is inviting offers to buy all of its shares. The bank, 20% owned by the Co-operative Group, almost collapsed in 2013, and was bailed out by US hedge funds. The bank has four million customers and is well know for its ethical standpoint, which it says makes it “a strong franchise with significant potential” when it comes to a sale. It has not been able to strengthen its finances because of low interest rates. A spokesman for the ...
