Microsoft Stabs Intel As Windows Moves To Arm Chips
Microsoft is taking a new step to make it easier to run Windows software on computers powered by Arm-designed chips, rather than Intel processors, the software giant revealed Friday. In the past,  Windows apps ran slowly on Arm-powered devices. That was a relic of the mighty duopoly of the PC era—the Intel and Microsoft together known as “Wintel.“ But that relationship has been fraying over the past few years. Microsoft is eager to move the Windows platform onto devices that are more mobile, which means bringing Windows onto the Arm chip architecture. Arm-based chips suck up less power than Intel… The post Microsoft Stabs Intel As Windows Moves To Arm Chips appeared first on Tekedia.

Amazon Taxes Virginia and New York on HQ2, The Power of Conglomerate Tax
I have explained Conglomerate Tax using Dangote Group: governments pay taxes to conglomerates to have them in their domains. Simply, with the power vested on conglomerates by markets, they get governments to support their future ambitions in ways no other entity could.

Yes, as Dangote Group builds a refinery, it could extract more goodies from governments than a man building petrol filling stations since government can easily find builders of petrol filing stations over people… The post Amazon Taxes Virginia and New York on HQ2, The Power of Conglomerate Tax appeared first on Tekedia.
