Protect yourself from Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The best way to prevent the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic illness is by avoiding your exposure to the virus. Clean your hands often, use soap and water for at least 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean your hands more frequently.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands or after being in the public.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
Stay home if you’re sick and take help from local health authorities and medical professionals.
Make sure to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Properly dispose the used tissues in the trash, and immediately clean your hands with soap and water or a hand sanitizer.
Wear a face mask if you are sick or if you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. Do not wear a face mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick.

Samsung announces Exynos 5 Octa chipsets with 8 cores

Samsung today unveiled the next generation Exynos 5 Octa chipsets with an update if 8 cores. The processor will be intelligent enough to use all the eight cores simultaneously.

We have already seen the South Korean powering its models like the Galaxy S4 and the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with the predecessor of Exynos Octa. But now the Samsung made Exynos Octa 5 uses four high-powered cores for high intense tasks like 3D gaming, advanced web browsing and four low-powered cores for low priority tasks. 

The South Korean's call for it, the Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) big.LITTLE chip technology, that can now make use of the eight cores in the processor at once. 

“It’s usually assumed that the big CPU will do all the performance-critical work, however, power-efficient little cores can handle many significant workloads all on their own, so the workload is balanced within the system,” says Taehoon Kim, vice president of System LSI marketing, Samsung Electronics.
