Former Apple Employees Reflect on Siri’s ‚Squandered Lead‘ Over Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant

The Information has published an in-depth look at how Siri has transitioned from one of Apple’s most promising technologies into a „major problem“ for the company. The article includes interviews with a dozen former Apple employees who worked on the various teams responsible for the virtual assistant.

Intel Chips Have ‚Kernel Memory Leaking‘ Design Flaw and Fix Could Lead to Performance Drop

A serious design flaw and security vulnerability has been discovered in Intel’s CPUs that will require an update at the operating system level to fix, reports The Register.

Full details on the vulnerability aren’t yet known as [...]
