A project that could point the way to a new class of drugs to treat influenza won the top prize Tuesday night at the Intel Science Talent Search, netting 17-year-old Eric S. Chen a cool $100,000. Chen, a senior at Canyon Crest Academy in San Diego, combined chemistry, biology and computer modeling to find compounds capable of blocking an enzyme called endonuclease, which the flu virus needs to spread. Despite taking home the grand prize at the 2013 Google Science Fair and the top individual honor at the 2013 Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology , Chen said he didn't expect to come in first at the Intel competition . “I had no idea I was going to win,” Chen told his hometown newspaper, the San Diego Union-Tribune, after the awards were announced in Washington, D.C. “If I had placed between fifth and 10th, I would have been incredibly happy.” Chen has worked in the lab of Rommie Amaro , an assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry at UC San Diego, since the summer of 2012.

Here's how valuable European soccer has become to sponsors: Now companies are buying advertising space on the inside of team uniforms. La Liga giant Barcelona has signed an agreement with Santa Clara-based chipmaker Intel in which the company's logo will be printed on the underside of the team's jerseys, meaning it will be visible only if players decide to lift their shirts for any reason. The ads reportedly will cost Intel a very visible $34.3 million. The shirts will make their debut Saturday when Barcelona meets Villarreal at the Camp Nou, although there's a good chance no one will notice.

One of the new Samsung tablets expected to be unveiled in late June will feature a processor built by Intel, according to Reuters . Most Android tablets and phones have come with computer chips made by ARM Holdings. That's weakened Intel's industry foothold as sales of mobile devices are expected to overtake sales of desktops and laptops. Earlier this year Intel said it had improved its chip design to improve speed and energy efficiency. But analysts had warned that large-scale switchovers from ARM to Intel would be unlikely because of the fear that any stumbling blocks that might arise would derail the tight production schedules for mobile devices.

Intel Corp. and the Federal Trade Commission are in talks to settle an antitrust lawsuit in which the Santa Clara, Calif., company has been accused of strong-arming clients into buying its computer chips. According to a statement from Intel, the company has until July 22 to "review and discuss a proposed" settlement. Intel said it could not comment because the terms of the proposed consent order were confidential. If the two parties do not reach an agreement by that date, the case could go before an administrative law judge in September.

Intel Corp. on Tuesday said it swung to a second-quarter profit as sales jumped 34%, blowing past Wall Street's estimates thanks to a continued rebound in the market for personal computers and big computer servers. "Strong demand from corporate customers for our most advanced microprocessors helped Intel achieve the best quarter in the company's 42-year history," Chief Executive Paul Otellini said in a statement. The Santa Clara, Calif, chip maker's results suggest a broader tech rebound will continue in the second half of this year.

Giant computer chip maker Intel Corp. agreed to accept broad new restrictions on the way it does business to settle federal charges that it abused its dominant market position to stifle competition over the last decade. Wednesday's agreement with the Federal Trade Commission could alter the course of the global semiconductor industry, as well as strengthen the hand of the FTC as it looks at other antitrust allegations in the technology sector, including those involving such leading players as Google Inc. and Apple Inc. "I think it signals the FTC is trying to crack down on anticompetitive behavior in this industry," said George H. Pike, an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law who teaches intellectual property and writes about information technology issues and the law. Intel's agreement, which would be made final after a 30-day period of public comment, would prohibit the Santa Clara firm from using certain rewards, threats and other tactics that regulators say induced computer makers Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co. and others to buy exclusively from Intel.

Intel Corp. introduced two faster versions of its flagship Pentium III microprocessor, further heating up the race with Advanced Micro Devices Inc. Intel will sell the new 850-megahertz and 866MHz Pentium III chips for $765 and $776, respectively. Intel's latest chips can perform faster than AMD's because they have extra memory included in the processor instead of an additional chip. Intel rose $5.13 to close at $135 in heavy Nasdaq trading.

UC Irvine is home to a new $12.5-million research center funded by chip maker Intel Corp., the company announced Tuesday. The center, called the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing, applies social science and humanities to the design and analysis of digital information. It opened June 1 but was announced Tuesday by Justin Rattner, Intel chief technology officer, in San Francisco. "Technology is profoundly entangled with our everyday lives. As researchers, we can't get a handle on what's going on by looking at technical factors alone," said UC Irvine professor Paul Dourish, who will co-lead the center.
