What is a GPU and how does it work? – Gary explains
“Besides the CPU, one of the most important components in a System-On-a-Chip is the Graphical Processing Unit, otherwise known as the GPU. However for many people the GPU is shrouded in mystery. You might know it has something to do with 3D gaming, but beyond that maybe you don’t really understand what is going on. With that in mind, let’s take a peek and see what is behind the curtain.”

interesting cases in law

Oracle America, Inc. v. Google, Inc.
“Oracle America, Inc. v. Google, Inc. is a dispute related to Oracle’s copyright and patent claims on Google’s Android operating system. In May 2012, the jury in this case found that Google did not infringe on Oracle’s patents, and the trial judge ruled that the structure of the Java APIs used by Google was not copyrightable.[1][2][3] The parties agreed to zero dollars in statutory damages for a small amount of copied code.[4] On May 9, 2014, the Federal Circuit partially reversed the district court ruling, ruling in Oracle’s favor on the copyrightability issue, and remanding the issue of fair use to the district court.[5][6] A petition for certiorari was denied by the United States Supreme Court on June 29, 2015. A second trial began May 9, 2016, in which Oracle sought US$8.8 billion in damages.[7] On May 26, 2016, the trial jury sided in favor of Google, ruling the action to be fair use.[8]”,_Inc._v._Google,_Inc.

online notary services using crypto currency tech

What is proof of existence?
“Use our service to anonymously and securely store an online distributed proof of existence for any document. Your documents are NOT stored in our database or in the bitcoin blockchain, so you don’t have to worry about your data being accessed by others.
All we store is a cryptographic digest of the file, linked to the time in which you submitted the document. In this way, you can later certify that the data existed at that time. This is the first online service allowing you to publicly prove that you have certain information without revealing the data or yourself, with a decentralized certification based on the bitcoin network.
The key advantages are anonymity, privacy, and getting a decentralized proof which can’t be erased or modified by anyone (third parties or governments). Your document’s existence is permanently validated by the blockchain even if this site is compromised or down, so you don’t depend or need to trust any central authority. All previous data timestamping solutions lack this freedom.”
