Earlier in May, Google pushed a major revamp of it's Plus application to the iOS platform. That update included a complete refresh of the layout and provided extra functionality that we enjoyed on the Android platform. The update quickly made the Android version look stale so we waited, most of us impatiently, for our update. http://goo.gl/HRKHX

Clay and Aaron talk with Tim Mattson about OpenCL
The Open Computing Language is a framework for writing programs that execute across heterogeneous platforms consisting of CPUs, GPUs, and other processors. OpenCL includes a language (based on C99) for writing kernels (functions that execute on OpenCL devices), plus APIs that are used to define and then control the heterogeneous platform.
For the past year, Nvidia has engaged in an unusually extended launch schedule. It debuted its Maxwell architecture with a budget GPU in February of 2014, followed it up with the high-end GTX 980 and 970 late last year, and today, with its new midrange GPU — the GTX 960. While not as sexy as the high-end GTX 970 or 980, which retail for $330 and $550 respectively, it slips in at just $200, which makes it far more affordable and practical for a large number of PC gamers.
It’s also debuting into the teeth of AMD’s strongest current price/performance ratio. AMD has held a strong position in the $100-$300 price brackets, thanks to aggressive price cuts and the incremental improvements offered by GPUs like the Radeon R9 285. Can Nvidia break that lock? Let’s take a look.
The GTX 960 is based on Nvidia’s new GM206 GPU. The GM206 GPU is a midrange part that’s essentially exactly half a GM204. It retains the same architectural layout and resource allocation as that GPU, with 128 CUDA cores per Streaming Multiprocessor (SM). If you’ve read our previous Maxwell coverage, than GM206 has few surprises lurking inside it. The chip may be smaller, with just 1024 cores instead of GTX 980’s 2048, but the chip’s internal caches and resources are distributed in the same ratios.
One pundit claimed that Charlie Boswell has the best job at AMD, he gets to play with the neatest toys, and hang out with the coolest people. He is the interface between technology and the entertainment world. AMD has just announced a new 1000 GPU supercomputer, we are going to get the inside scoop from the man who knows!
