The UK's PM has responded to the recent terror attacks by saying the internet must be regulated.

Intel's 18-core desktop monster isn't coming just yet. ASUS' Raja Gill has confirmed that Intel will not be releasing their new i9 18-core Skylake-X CPUs alongside their X299 platform, stating that Intel's high core count CPUs will be releasing later this year. Meanwhile a few people sent in this video where Linus from LinusTechTips expresses his frustration at Intel's recent CPU strategy.
