Intel Xeon E7 CPUs Bound for Q1 2014 Release

Intel isn't going to dawdle on the professional/HPC market. Unlike on the consumer front, where high-end chips are sometimes launched alone, for extra hype, the business/professional market does better with bulk launches.

So when the Xeon E7 line of microprocessors finally comes out in 1Q14, you can be sure they'll come out in force. En masse as it were. According to certain parties, there will be nineteen standard-power and frequency optimized E7 SKUs, plus two low-power Xeon E7 processors.

That last pair will be useful in ultra dense servers, where coolers can't afford to be too large. Sadly, no specifications exist, for any of the CPUs, or the C602J chipset that will support them. All we do know is that C102/C104 SMBs (Scalable Memory Buffers) will be implemented alongside them.

BBM for iOS and Android Now Available for Download

Good news for iOS and Android users, as BlackBerry has just announced it has resumed the rollout of BlackBerry Messenger for both platforms.

According to BlackBerry, iOS users can now download the application for free via App Store, while Android users can get it via Google Play Store. Keep in mind that BlackBerry will roll out both applications in stages, which means it will be released globally over the next few hours. If you don't see BBM for Android on Google Play Store yet don't fret, as it will become available later on, if nothing bad happens. BlackBerry also announced Samsung customers in Sub-Sahara Africa can download BBM today from the Samsung Apps store, while iPhone and other Android users in Africa will be able to download the app in three days’ time. We will keep you posted with the rollout of BBM for iOS and Android over the next few hours, so stay tuned for more updates.

I've managed to download BBM for iOS via App Store, but I'm not able to use it yet due to high number of people that are trying to log onto the application. Check gallery for additional screenshots. Once you download BBM for iOS and Android, open it and enter your email address, so that BlackBerry can inform you when you can start using BlackBerry Messenger. BBM for Android is now available for download via Google Play Store. Keep in mind that the application requires Android 4.0 and up.
