    A Reminder from AMD: Our Processors Aren't Affected by New "SPOILER" Vulnerability

    "No Survivors": Second New Boeing 737 to Crash in Four Months

    Jesus fucking Christ! We've been using human pilots for how long and now all of sudden we need computers to do every fucking thing for us? How about a single button on the cockpit dash somewhere that totally disables/enables computer assistance of any kind? If the pilots can't gain control...

    Report Claims Canadian Police are Tracking and Acting On "Negative" Behavior

    You can have my poutine but if you even attempt to take my hockey stick, you're a dead man walking. :)

    Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron to Face Revenue Drops in Q1 2019

    A revenue drop for them should come from heavy fines. One years worth of profits should be the right amount to make them never collude again.

    Intel Wants to Take You on a Graphics Odyssey

    A Huang quote and a photo of Raja should never be in the same photo/meme. They're like heaven and hell or oil and water, they don't mix right. Unless you're going for the Intel is making a GPU, well that's certainly fucked up approach, then it makes perfect sense.

    I'm personally looking forward to what Intel brings to the table. Be great to actually have a third competitor in the GPU space.

    Here Is the Samsung Unpacked Press Event

    My beloved S5 just died about one month ago. Fat chance I'd ever buy a new phone anymore with the prices they want and yes, I can easily afford a $1000 phone before anyone asks. Would I ever buy one at that price, FUCK NO! I'm trying to find another S5 used or refurbished locally. It made...

    YouTube Updates Its Strike System

    The problem with Youtube, Facebook and many other social networks is they keep moving the field posts as to what hate speech and lunacy are. If they would just stick to the legal letter of the law regarding hate speech, they'd have a much better reputation for being fair to the left and the right.

    Global Foundries May Be Sold

    It would be far easier to retro fit an existing fab then to completely start from scratch. It's not only about the money saved by not building a new facility but the infrastructure is already done for the existing fab.

    TSMC Begins Volume Production of Enhanced 7 nm EUV Process Node in March

    The last time I read about TSMC's 7nm EUV node, they were having problems with heat and finding a suitable pellicle material. I guess they got that all figured out now. Time to go read some nerd porn. :)

    AMD Radeon VII 33-Game Benchmark: "It Makes the GTX 2080 Look Pretty Good"

    I'm more interested in minimum frames and frame times. What difference does it make if you can do 150 fps+ if you have to endure any stutter. Disclaimer: These aren't cards I'll ever buy anyhow as I made a promise to myself years ago that I would never spend more than $500 CDN on any video...
