Two of the biggest sales events of the year are Amazon’s Prime Day and Black Friday, but how do you know which is the best one to shop? And are there key differences between the two events?

The internet’s largest gatekeepers have had it with cookies, and they’re waging a war to wipe them off the face of the web. No company is more at the forefront of this uprising than Google, which wants to replace cookies with an alternative that “hides you in the crowd” to offer a more private online experience. So what’s wrong with cookies? Cookies have been one of the web’s key cogwheels since the mid-1990s. But what started as an innocuous and convenient solution for e-commerce websites to remember what you had in your cart has over the years evolved into an easily accessible and vastly abused channel into users’ browsing activity for advertisers. The concept of cookies has remained untouched forever. They’re little pieces of data that websites store in your browser to recognize you the next time you visit them.

Intel on Tuesday revealed its vision for the future called IDM 2.0, which is an evolution of the company's integrated device manufacturing (IDM) model mixed with two contrasting ingredients: outsourcing and foundry services. Intel will not give up its own manufacturing and will do everything it needs to recapture process technology leadership. Furthermore, Intel will build additional production capacities in the U.S. and Europe and will start offering foundry services to third parties. The company will spend $20 billion to expand its capacities in Arizona. To gain customers, Intel Foundry Services will offer clients Intel's IP, including customizable CPU cores, and will embrace industry-standard IP and flows, making it relatively easy to switch from other makers to Intel. Imagine an Amazon, Microsoft or Google-designed x86 chip!
