Avengers: Infinity War Ending Explained - IGN

But the real ending comes as the Avengers are faced with the reality of what Thanos has done: In the aftermath of the battle, we see some of our heroes safe and sound, while others disintegrate into ashes before our eyes. Cap watches Bucky fall apart just a few feet away from him, while Okoye reaches out to her king, only for T’Challa to disappear right in front of her. The destruction isn’t restricted to Earth, either - on Titan, Tony and Nebula watch Doctor Strange, Mantis, Drax, Star Lord and finally Spider-Man start to fade from existence - with Spidey’s death proving to be the most traumatic, as Peter sobs and clings to Tony before he vanishes.

Intel Delays Mass Production of 10 nm CPUs to 2019

Being a very large company, Intel has a multifaceted strategy that spans across product lines and generations. Right now, Intel is battling with yield issues that plague its Cannon Lake product family and the first-gen 10 nm manufacturing process. There are other 10 nm products in the pipeline that are to be made using a refined fabrication technology (such as 10+, 10++). It is pretty obvious that Intel will learn how to improve its 10 nm yields with the CNL lineup, but what remains to be seen is how significantly the delays of this product family affect launch schedules of its successors. Despite Intel's statements, there is outside discussion that Intel could decide to switch right to 7 nm, bypassing 10 nm altogether.

Without a well-thought policy, everyone makes their own assumptions about what is acceptable use, and people may not know what they don't know about risks to the enterprise with using different forms of electronic communications."

NPR: Story 'The Man Who Spent $100K To Remove A Lie From Google' Has Been Retracted

Editor's note on April 11, 2018: NPR has retracted the story that was previously on this page because it did not meet our standards. "Fairness" is one of our guiding principles, and to that end we have pledged to "make every effort to gather responses from those who are the subjects of criticism." In this instance, that did not happen. The story referred to one individual as the "author" of a website that another person said had posted defamatory information about him. It also described the author's motivation as vindictive. But NPR did not contact the alleged author. Upon review, NPR cannot say for certain who the author or authors were or what their motivation was. In fact, in court proceedings, the people listed as "staff editors" of the site were identified only by initials, and we have not been able to establish their identities. In addition, our account made it sound as if the website targeted a single individual. In fact, the website included information and commentary about at least 12 other people. The reporting mistakes substantially undercut the story. We will continue to report about the issue of privacy in the digital age.
