    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    Guess people can build a sunshade for their antennas using radome materials (fiberglass, ptfe?) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radome

    Several macOS Monterey Features Unavailable on Intel-Based Macs

    Some of these I get since they probably use dedicated hardware on the M1 chip and they dont want to spend time optimizing for general purpose cpu. But for this feature: that better be the most amazing 3d globe I have ever seen ! :D

    Using sound to process radio. Not the usual other way round...

    Is it referring to these sorts of devices? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surface_acoustic_wave

    Using sound to process radio. Not the usual other way round...

    I did not understand this. They are getting rid of traditional radio antennas/systems and somehow using acoustic properties to transmit / receive?

    AMD Stacked V-Cache

    I have a feeling he may be right. As a reference, typical propagation delay in pcie traces is 160ps/inch. That would mean 1 foot of of extra pcie trace would add about 2ns of delay. However PCIe is differential signaling, and I'm not sure if dram signals would have signficantly different...

    GN: Intel to push ATX12VO hard for Alder Lake

    Just plug your fan into the PSU: https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/power_supply/atx12vo_tested_-_the_future_of_power_supplies/2 If your PSU doesn't have extra power connectors, get a different one. Yeah that's not good. I dont see any incentive to overvoltage +5V and +3.3V. Keeping ATX12VO...

    GN: Intel to push ATX12VO hard for Alder Lake

    Sorry for cutting out a lot of your quote, i just want to keep it short. I agree with everything you said. So I think at the very least it would be nice if they standardized on the connector so you don't have to go hunting for weird adapters if you DO want to try to replace the PSU (obviously...

    GN: Intel to push ATX12VO hard for Alder Lake

    To be clear, I'm not attacking you, I was sincerely asking you to clarify something. This topic reminds me of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_triviality Its interesting how enthusiastic people get about it (me included!), but in the end, as far as I can tell, it doesn't really matter all...

    GN: Intel to push ATX12VO hard for Alder Lake

    I dont understand this quote. In direct opposition to your sentence: CPU, RAM, and PCH are already regulated on the motherboard from 12v down to their respective voltages on any board in the last 10 years. In the very next paragraph you use the CPU power regulation as an example of what they...

    Very white paint

    oh snap! This will be my last question since I'm starting to go pretty far off-topic. Assuming you DO know the angle of incoming light (solar panel has tracking system to always point straight at the sun for example), is it still better to have a randomized diffuse rear reflector or at the...

    Very white paint

    i see. why does diffuse reflected light work better?
