In a recent poll, Bloomberg showed that half of American’s don’t want their children playing football.

Millions of players compete at the Pop Warner, college and high school levels and don’t have to follow the same the rules keeping NFL player from suffering from concussions.

Chip maker Intel just showcased its new line of “Broadwell-U” processors on Monday at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), making these Intel’s 5th generation of Core i3 to i7 high-end laptop chips. Broadwell brings several improvements over previous generation “Haswell” chips, namely performance gains and longer battery life. However, the changes aren’t as substantial as the ones that Haswell brought since Broadwell is the “Tick” in Intel’s typical “Tick-Tock” design model. Still, Broadwell should pave the way for a range of powerful new laptops in early to mid 2015.
