    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    I have a few Alexa devices, but rarely use them, I just don't have a ton of things that integrate well with them. I don't use voice anything really, not even voice to text on phones. My parents use theirs all the time and have a bunch of connected devices, basically use it to control their home...

    Visiontek Mystery boxes are back

    Was pretty happy with my $20 and $50 boxes last year, the USB-C Docks ended up being great as I gave them out to people who needed them (Company switched to new HP laptops that require USB-C Docks, and there was a couple month delivery backlog on the docks this year) , and the Memory I got ended...

    The Chinese GPU Invasion

    I'm honestly more interested to see the Innosilicon cards since they're using the Imagination Technology IP. Would be interested to see how the older A series performs, or B series if the new cards use it, but mainly wanting to see the CXT IP with raytracing on a Card. They've said they kind...

    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    You could put a lot of AT&T Purchases up there, I'd put the time Warner up as a bigger oof though. I actually think that was a good purchase for them.

    Join us on November 3rd as we unveil AMD RDNA™ 3 to the world!

    Honestly I'll probably grab the AMD version of this generation of cards, the 3090 is playing well so don't really need an upgrade, but a second set never hurts.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    I'm honestly interested because I want a 4090, but am probably gonna let this go by (on the nvidia side at least) as nothing I play really makes my 3090 have trouble running it at this point. Interested to see the AMD side.

    Steam Deck Tips & Tricks

    That's all through emudeck, it basically has all the emulators with it (some additional setup stuff for newer things) . The page you see above is the navigation page opened in steam, it'll only show the systems that have roms, so it won't show everything.

    First RISC-V laptop available now for pre-order with quad-core processor and 16 GB LPDDR4X RAM

    They are certainly starting to roll out more powerful things, but it's not really in the High performance side, from a SBC standpoint they are looking decent . I know SiFive with their partnership with intel is working on more power desktop style things...

    NVIDIA reportedly wants to cut TSMC orders for next-gen RTX 40 GPUs 5nm wafers amid lower demand

    Honestly I really hope Broadcom gets more allocation from AMD/Apple/Nvidia cutting their orders (if allowed), would help a great ton in the networking/routing space. Those Jericho 2/2c+ (among others) shortages are annoying as heck (although I suppose only the 7nm lines would really matter)

    Serious Steam Deck Software Flaw Gone Unsolved Since Launch (WiFi issues)

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    NFT's in there present form kind of confuse me, I kind of see them as an extension of what already exists, for example Back in the UO days, I had sold Houses for $100s of dollars, Small armor sets for $250, etc, but those had some Value, being unique or helpful in games, and that type of selling...

    QSFP28 questions

    Kinda in agreement there, if you aren't going to care about the enhanced features of the intel cards, don't buy them yet, wait until you can buy them later when it makes sense, it will code wise in operating systems make your life easier.

    QSFP28 questions

    I've used them for 4 or so years for their 40-100G modules, we started trialing some of their QSFP-DD last year , haven't noticed any issues than any other optic. I can see the concern, but you still have a lot of big telco's buying their equipment (switches, I'm assuming transceivers as well)...

    QSFP28 questions

    Yea, I mean I'd just get a QSFP-100G-SR4 (New on for around $100, pick the type of compatibility you want.) , then your standard OM3/4 MPO Breakout cable is all you'll need. Also yes for the 25Gbase-LR for the 1310nm. Assuming you're looking at the E810-CQDA2 cards (the E810-2CQDA2 are...

    Why is Comcast set top box (non-X1) taking DAYS to reload the program guide? Coincidence that I just changed my cable modem?

    DSG = DOCSIS Set-Top Gateway , basically to provide the video/out of band data to your Set top box. No OOB = Program Guide Issues . Without going too deep in the weeds on DOCSIS fun, if services were changed (They wouldn't just drop it, so I'd assume by accident) and/or the provisioning is a...

    Why is Comcast set top box (non-X1) taking DAYS to reload the program guide? Coincidence that I just changed my cable modem?

    I imagine they'd like to start getting rid of traditional QAM video to free up spectrum, although I don't think comcast would be pushing to get rid of their DSG yet, although it clearly is going to be a thing. I'm assuming you have OFDM channels for your new cable service, and I doubt they'd...

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    One of my Coworkers just got it, around the STL area out at his farm, he seems to like it a lot (compared to DSL), getting around 100 Megs down, with latency around 40 ms. He hasn't installed it on his roof yet, so it's missing about 10% LoS, so I'm sure it will get better.

    Apple Mac Studio and Studio Display

    I am really excited to see how Asahi Linux rolls out on these guys, figure the GPU side is probably the biggest issue, but getting the cpu side up and running well for a m1 max/ultra would probably make me pick up one, if nothing else just to play with.
