Just about a week ago, Nvidia announced its $40 billion deal to acquire Arm from its current owner SoftBank. This deal would be the biggest by dollar value in the semiconductor industry, but it’s not without regulatory challenges. Plus, competitors may be concerned about how this will affect future Arm licensing agreements and if the deal will cause Arm to lose its customer-neutral model. On this episode of Today in Tech, Juliet Beauchamp presents an overview of the historic deal, what hurdles it will face with regulators and why companies like Apple, Intel or Qualcomm may be apprehensive about the Nvidia-Arm merger.
From Apple Silicon to App Library, Car Key and sleep tracking, Juliet, Mike and Ken rehash the event and dive into the features they’re most looking forward to using. Also, we apologize for the quality of the video... working through some technical difficulties. We'll have it perfected next time.
