Watch Mars make its closest approach to Earth in 10 years

Mars is about to make its closest approach to Earth in the space of a decade... and this time around, it'll be trivially easy to watch this rare celestial event. Slooh is offering a live stream that will kick off around 9PM Eastern, when the sky should be dark enough to observe the Red Planet in vivid detail (the closest approach is technically at 5:34PM, around when this story went live). Gizmodo notes that you can also get a first-hand look if you point a telescope to the right of the bright star Antares.

Apple faces Caltech lawsuit over WiFi patents

Apple's legal troubles with schools aren't over yet: Caltech has sued Apple and chipmaker Broadcom for allegedly violating four WiFi-related patents. Supposedly, most Apple devices (including the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch) from the iPhone 5 onward use Broadcom chips that copy Caltech decoding and encoding technology to improve data flow. As with most such lawsuits, the institute is calling for both damages and a ban on offending hardware.

Qualcomm aims for more efficient wearables with latest chip

Qualcomm says it's meant for "targeted purpose" wearables -- things like smartwatches for kids and the elderly, or fitness trackers, all of which won't need the horsepower that more powerful, multi-purpose wearables require. The chip is 45 percent smaller than Qualcomm's QSC6270 processor (the 2100 is 30 percent smaller), and it'll last for up to 7 days with LTE standby.

Among the Snapdragon Wear 1100's features is a Power Save Mode (pretty obvious why that's useful), and an integrated LTE/3G modem. Naturally, it'll also support Bluetooth and WiFi. The 1100 will also offer location tracking with Qualcomm's "iZat" technology, which uses cell tower and GNSS (satellite) tracking, and hardware-based security.

Qualcomm's chips are now being used in more than 100 wearables, the company says. A few partners also debuted new devices at Computex running Snapdragon 2100 chips: Anda showed off its tracking smartwatch for kids, while WeBandz unveiled a location tracker that could be used for children, the elderly or even pets. The Snapdragon 1100 is now shipping to customers, so you can expect to see it in devices early next year.

Spotify’s deal with Dubset means more remixes to stream

Back in March, Apple reached a deal with Dubset to make sure sampled artists in remixes and DJ mixes on its music service were properly compensated. Last week, Spotify did the same, inking an agreement to leverage Dubset's MixBANK distribution platform to ensure that both the artists creating the mixes and those being sampled receive the royalties they're due. The MixBANK system checks an uploaded track for copyrighted material before getting permission for its use from the correct label and/or publisher.

Faintest known galaxy could shed light on the early universe

Scientists have only just started finding extremely faint galaxies. However, they've already topped themselves by discovering the faintest known galaxy to date... and it might just provide insight into the universe's early days. Found through gravitational lensing, the galaxy is both supremely ancient (13 billion years old) and extremely tiny (just 0.0001 percent the size of the Milky Way). In other words, it's a textbook example of the dwarf galaxies that researchers believe were key to re-ionizing the universe and taking it out of the lightless "dark ages." With enough study, it could help explain what triggered that ionization and fill in one of the gaps in our understanding of existence.

Intel’s first 10-core desktop CPU will cost $1,723

So what does such an expensive processor get you? Intel claims it's twice as fast as the quad-core i7 6700K when it comes to 3D rendering, and 35 percent faster than the last-gen Core i7-5960X. When it comes to editing 4K video, it's 65 percent faster than that same quad-core chip and 25 percent faster than the previous i7. On the gaming front, it's 25 percent faster than the 5960X when it comes to gaming in 4K while encoding and broadcasting a 1080p Twitch stream. Basically, if you're dealing with massive amounts of content on a daily basis, it could be the ideal CPU for you.

The new Extreme Edition of i7 processors will also be available in an 8-core version (the i7-6900K for $1,089) and 6-core variants (the i7-6850K for $617 and the i7-6800K for $434). Naturally, they're completely unlocked, so you can overclock them to your heart's content. All of the new chips also support DDR4-2400 RAM, a slight bump in speeds from the previous-gen processors.

If your head is spinning at the cost of these chips, then they're probably not for you. But for demanding users, it puts Intel a step ahead of AMD, whose current high-end processor tops out at eight cores (though it's notably cheaper any any of Intel's chips). If you're in the market for a new CPU and still want a decent amount of power, Intel still has its "Performance Unlocked" line of i7 CPUs around, the 6600K ($242) and 6700K ($339).

Intel’s 7th generation of Core CPUs are coming later this year

Besides its $1,723 10-core Core i7 Extreme Edition processor, Intel just teased some other chip news during its keynote presentation at Computex. There aren't many details available, but the company confirmed the the 7th generation of its Core CPU technology will go on sale later this year. They will be joined by its Apollo Lake chips, which are a cheaper version of the current 6th gen Skylake family. Apollo Lake should bring 4K video capability and USB-C to cheaper, 2-in-1 laptop/tablet style devices with smaller batteries. As far as the 7th generation of Core CPUs, buyers can expect support for Thunderbolt 3, and IR cameras used for features like Windows Hello's facial recognition.

UberPool now covers most of central London

The service itself remains mostly the same, however. You simply open the app, choose the UberPool option and set your destination. Once you've specified the number of seats you need -- two is the maximum, otherwise you're not really sharing -- Uber will figure out the best driver based on their location and who else they'll be able to pick up along the way.

UberPool is 25 percent cheaper than UberX, Uber's next most affordable option. Until June 10th, you can also travel for £5 by entering the code "POOLFIVER" between 5pm and midnight on weekdays. For Uber, this promotion is important to attract new people in its expanded catchment area. After all, the service is dependent on a steady stream of drivers and passengers. If you're the only person requesting a ride, you could be waiting a while before someone picks you up. Which, regardless of price, could be a deal-breaker if you're trying to get somewhere in a hurry.

The President of Taiwan tries a quick chat with ASUS’ home robot

I've said before that Computex is ASUS' show -- and what better demonstration than having the recently-elected President of Taiwan "talk" to your newly announced home robot? Crowd noise necessitated several repeated commands to ASUS' Zenbo play some music, but if it was apparently a live demonstration (ASUS' PR affirmed to our Engadget Chinese colleagues that it was), then it's pretty impressive. (I can barely upload to Instagram in the thick of this show.) Unfortunately, the Zenbo's SOS feature failed in the midst of the trade show chaos. Check out the successful part of the interaction between world leader and... $600 house robot, right after the break.
