NBN Co have released their 2016 financial results and consider themselves on track and exceeding network targets. Issues over the NBN, its technology mix, speed and quality of broadband delivery and the negative politics of the massive project were momentarily cast aside today when chief executive Bill Morrow said, “During the year we doubled our Ready for Service footprint to 2.9 million premises, and at the same time, we doubled the amount of end users connected hitting a record high of 1.1 million”.

The Intel Developer Forum is underway, with HotHardware reporting on 7th Generation Core processors, a merged reality headset, a new Xeon Phi processor and new 100Gbps network modules. More interesting is the news that Intel are partnering with ARM, whereby Intel will manufacture ARM chips for smartphones. Now, Intel is deciding to wade back in to the ARM waters as an ARM licensee. The chip giant will not design and market its own ARM-based designs, but it will offer its mammoth custom foundry business to produce ARM processors for other companies. More info on PC Perspective.

NVIDIA meanwhile have unveiled their Pascal mobile GPU for gaming notebooks. NVIDIA flew a bunch of tech press and YouTubers out to London for the announcement of its Pascal-based GeForce graphics cards making their way into gaming notebooks. During the event, NVIDIA announced that the GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 would be finding their way into various gaming notebooks in all different shapes and sizes. More coverage on TechARP, PC Perspective, TechSpot and HotHardware.

Today's timewaster is SPACEPLAN, thanks scon. It's another of those incremental clicky games like Cookie Clicker, Reactor Idle and Factory Idle - but it won't suck up your entire life, only a few hours. Hopefully. :) Discussion here.
