    Department of Justice Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google

    Google wants to start interfering with Ad Block. This change would likely propogate into all Chromium Browsers that don't to a lot of Rework. They can be cut up into a 1000 pieces the size of a Party Store for all I care.

    Department of Justice Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google

    There is one thing on the DOJ's side, advertisers. Depends if Google is getting gougie on rates. Also on their bullying tactics. I could see Google's corporate enemies and frenemies might be pretty long. Add in Wallstreeters who believe Google peaked and wouldn't mind slaughtering the...

    Researcher Discusses How Time Travel Could Prevent a Pandemic like Covid

    looping would happen until looping wasn't possible anymore. A person will rarely be satisfied and will try to push for one better. More than one person will guarantee no one would be satisfied enough to stop. That would require the death of all people involved and all their copies or the...

    Windows’ Hidden Self Destruct Code

    When you've killed the competition and entrenched yourself into the marketplace and demonstrated the willingness to kill a competitor (unopposed), no investors will invest against you. You can drop the games. People just knowing you're willing to play them, is enough.

    The Mandalorian- new Disney+ Star Wars series

    They might breadcrumb that for 2-3 season leading up to a final showdown arc. Gus is doing other things, overall involvement is going to be pretty low, I'm guessing.

    Softbank selling ARM to Nvidia, finally after year of speculation...

    ARM is a licensing designer. China will just fork from today or fork each new iteration stripping out proprietary content. Regardless this deal should not be allowed.

    Justice League Official Trailer

    You have to build to the Big villain. Looks like they're going for another Grey Monster. Too bad, because MCU turned Thanos into a more DC Darkseid character with a more reserved manner and an overarching master plan with a purpose than Marvel's mad titan character. They even ditched the...

    A 'consciousness conductor' synchronizes and connects mouse brain areas

    AI is a wall. The better it gets, the dumber we get. Then the dumber AI gets. It depends if we can get AI smart enough to improve itself before we get too dumb. I don't think we can get there, we'll get too dumb first. So we're safe from an AI take over. The reason we don't see a ton...

    AI Company Leaks Over 2.5 Million Medical Records

    Reminds me of the time the Clintons connected social security info to the internet, realized by some chance someone was ready with all the right hacks to hoover in all the data and then they pulled the plug. Would have been cheaper if they just made hard drive backups and handed those off to...

    Moderna Coronavirus vaccine sees positive results in phase one trial

    The economy is people's lives. It's like a shark the has to keep moving. The idea it's a fixed pile of gold that never grows or shrinks is an infantile perception. Things are starting to decay from under us. The signs are there if you're willing to look. The Death Rate is higher than...

    US Aims to Bring Chip Manufacturing Industry Back to Its Soil

    No it doesn't but there's such a fixation on this point by wallstreet because it's the only part of a business most stockholders sort of understand.

    Steam Outage: Major, Right now

    This is the logic my mother must have used eating donuts. She'd cut one in half eat it, then come back and eat the other half. So that's 1 whole donut she ate and 1 whole donut she didn't eat. So a net zero donuts eaten.

    Scientists able to turn ferromagnetism on/off in non-magnetic materials

    I assume this would give motors the ability to have high steady state force with low amperage. Basically high torque position holding control with a motor with lower amperage and size. Basically you can make Gundham's.

    Superman builds a Ryzen system.

    At a minimum this was reviewed and approved by his 'people'. It may not have originally been his idea. It's possible they were brainstorming on how he could look off the clock but interesting and he offered the fact he was about to build a PC. That's probably the best case scenario for this...

    Cyberpunk 2077 delayed to November 19th

    They want time to incorporate outrage feedback. Too many Black villains is racist or too few is racist? That kind of no win bullshit. If they give a cushion between press & release, they can 'fix' the randomly generated outrage. If the journos don't point anything out now, they can't say...

    Do we really want our robots to have consciousness?

    If you could actually make an AI that was a self-aware sentient being, it would be both dangerous and potentially cruel to do so. You have a being that going from nothing to existing as a fully developed version of itself in under a day. Humans take 9 months to develop an another 18 years to...

    Jack Dorsey Tells Andrew Yang: 'AI is Coming For Programming Jobs'

    Doing UBI now is just buying votes and subsidizing Amazon. Wait for calamity to actually get here first. The Industrial Revolution should have created mass unemployment and to a degree, it did. But we're better off in the long run. If I have health insurance the rest of my life, a UBI on...

    Bill Gates, Airbus, Softbank back EarthNow plan to cover Earth with real-time video surveillance satellites

    This is good? Government agencies previous to today who had privy to that type of power had little interest in messing with my personal life. That has shifted in the past two decades, but doesn't make it right and needs to end. But my neighbors have all kinds of interest in fucking with me...

    So based off a assumption that improved surival rate will result in reduced birthrate is dumb. This is based off correlation = causation in the West. Commensurate with improved survivability we had agricultural revolution in lowing the need for labor, a massive improvement in the average...

    COVID: The Outbreak (The Game) is officially launching on May 29th

    For an individual, it is in the ballpark of a bad flu year. It's the number of sick people at once which was the threat but that was based on a much higher per individual risk of becoming serious. The numbers need to be re-run, but if you never look you never have to say you were wrong.
