That was really cool. The red dirt is completely different than what we do here in Ohio, but a lot of the textures and stuff are the same. The following day, we went out and did two more pits then Thursday was the actual contest.“We each just went there more as a fun thing for us to do. It was our first year doing this and to me it was just an amazing experience being able to go out and represent our chapter in a national contest.”Other teams from Ohio included the Buckeye Central FFA, taking 4th place overall. Tallawanda placed 19th, Centerville in 38th, Northwestern-Wayne at 46th place, and right behind them the McClain FFA Chapter in 47th.last_img read more

1 billion for Intels 5G business why is Apple crazy about it

first_img Close Apple announced that it will be buying Intel’s cellular modem business for $1 billion. The transaction is expected to close by the last quarter of 2019. The acquisition would include a corporate exchange of about 2,200 employees from Intel with the transfer of IP and equipment to Apple.The envelope to the deal will enclose about 17,000 wireless patents on protocols for cellular standards, modem architecture, and operations. The deal also signs amendments stating that Intel will be allowed to develop modems for PCs, IoT devices and autonomous vehicles. An Intel sign is seen at the Intel Museum in Santa Clara, California on November 4, 2016. / AFP / JOSH EDELSONJOSH EDELSON/AFP/Getty ImagesThe acquisition will allow Apple to build 5G modems for its smartphones rather than depending on Qualcomm for the hardware. The iPhone major though signed the deal with Intel; it will rely on Qualcomm’s hardware until the patent license agreement of six years between the two companies comes to an end.Apple had been using hardware from both, Intel and Qualcomm till last year when they closed a deal with Qualcomm to solely produce cellular modems for their devices. Intel had been struggling since then without any buyer for its products. Apple CEO Tim Cook launches the Apple March 2019 event. Courtesy apple.comApple had been trying to relieve itself from all third-party collaborations and focused on in-house manufacturing of the modems. It has been working on the modem technology for years through its research and development (R&D) centres in San Diego.According to some reports, the iPhone manufacturer will be able to complete its research and development to produce its own modems by 2022. So, there might be good news for the users as the research and development on modems might bring variations in the i-devices.
