    Micron Cuts DRAM and NAND Flash Output as ASP Falters

    Too late Micron. Their inventories are ballooning out of sight -- well higher in terms of days sales that any time in modern history (at least 1995) by a large margin. They are currently sitting on about 140 days of inventory and it is expected to climb further. That measure is rarely over...

    Micron Cuts DRAM and NAND Flash Output as ASP Falters

    Very clever, announce the cuts loudly to get your oligopolist buddies at Samsung and SK Hynix to do the same. A criminal act would be to actually have a meeting to plan cuts, this is the sneaky bitch way to get around that problem.

    Facebook Employees Had Access to Millions of User Passwords Stored in Plain Text

    And they suggest a strong password, like it's a user issue. That would helps if FB could do something really crazy, like not keeping passwords in plain text files. How strong is strong in plain text? :rolleyes:

    Intel Comet Lake Processors Could Pack 10 Cores

    While it is a good overview of the Lakes, I am even more confused what belongs in which lake. Probably best to just throw the whole lot of them into the Great Lakes and start over with a new catchy name, like oh say Pentium X. ;)

    Windows 10 Update Can Degrade Graphics, Mouse Performance in Certain Games

    So what's new? Windows updates are poorly tested and bork up systems, status quo remains intact. How about we allow a lot more control over updates by users, radical idea I know. :rolleyes:

    Man Who Made Hoax Call In Deadly Swatting Seeks 20-Year Term

    You know if you add up all the people killed wrongfully by cops lately, it outnumbers the plague. Black kid with a walkman -- kill him. Guy answering the door -- kill him. Dude runs -- shoot him in the back. Lots of cop fuck ups. But yeah, this asshat should die in a deep dark hole from...

    Samsung Offers to Supply Foldable Displays to Apple and Google

    Sharing is caring, but Samsung wants to stay the big kid on the block: Samsung sent Apple a "7.2-inch size foldable panel. 7.2 inches is 0.1 inches smaller than the Samsung Folder 'Galaxy Fold'." Who wants a **tiny** 7.2 inch folder when Samsung is 7.3 inches of shiny? Size matters. ;)

    NVIDIA and AMD Are Shipping Fewer GPUs as Retailers Sit on Inventory

    NVIDIA and/or AMD should have a limited time big rebate (like $50-250 based on model MSRP) for a limited time. That would allow them to move a lot of cards but keep their exorbitant pricing baseline intact. Greedy fools.

    New Study Claims Piracy is Driven by Availability and Price

    Most "studies" in the entertainment area reach the conclusion that is desired by the sponsoring $$. I just finished a study that concluded there is no piracy at all, that term is just a fantasy excuse by corporate management -- my study included 2 or so computers on the network at work, nope...

    NATO Experiment Manipulated Soldiers Through Facebook

    While that's a start, sadly it isn't enough for the young enlistees who grew up on connectivity. Like the stupid kid that took pictures on his nuclear sub, no ill intent just no real thought process. While mine is a totally different environment, we battle daily with all our young techs and...

    NVIDIA Releases Its Financial Results for Q4 and Fiscal 2019
