  • 24/50   Sultans of shrink pack more chips into smart wearables
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Michael Gold TAIPEI (Reuters) - The latest chapter in the miniaturisation of increasingly smart consumer electronics lies in the hands of chip packagers, an indispensable group of firms whose role in the supply chain alone is worth $27 billion. Packagers like Taiwan's Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Inc (ASE) receive chips from manufacturers and prepare them for device assemblers by, for instance, encasing them in metal and resin. The advent of wearable devices, particularly Apple Inc's Apple Watch and its dozens of chips, pushed packagers to devise innovative ways of cramming ever-more communications, graphics and location chips into the tiniest of spaces.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (This version of the July 30th corrects story to read "partly" of a political nature, not "mostly" in paragraph 10) By Julia Fioretti BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Google Inc is refusing to bow to an order from the French privacy watchdog to scrub search results worldwide when users invoke their "right to be forgotten" online, it said on Thursday, exposing itself to possible fines. The French data protection authority, the CNIL, in June ordered the search engine group to de-list on request search results appearing under a person's name from all its websites, including Google.com. Google complied with the ruling and has since received more than a quarter of a million removal requests, according to its transparency report.

At an earlier court appearance, family members riveted the country by expressing heartfelt forgiveness to Dylann Storm Roof, the suspect in last month's massacre at Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, saying their Christian faith compelled them to rise above their grief. Friday's arraignment comes a week after a federal grand jury in South Carolina returned a 33-count indictment accusing Roof of hate crimes and firearms charges, adding to the raft of state murder and attempted murder counts he already faces.

European scientists celebrated an historic first when Philae landed on a comet called 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in November after a 10-year journey through space aboard the Rosetta spacecraft. As it landed, Philae bounced and ended up in shadow, where its batteries soon ran out.

"It would be a pretty barren planet without it," said University of Rochester geophysicist John Tarduno. Researchers on Thursday said evidence entombed in tiny crystals retrieved from the outback of western Australia indicates the magnetic field arose at least 4.2 billion years ago, much earlier than previously believed.
