Daily Tech News 15 September 2021

Top Story

  • Apple announced a new range of cameras with phones attached to them. (The Verge)

    They're supposed to be pretty good cameras too.


  • Apple also announced a new small tablet which gets a few things right but has some bizarre marketing. (The Verge)

    The iPad Mini 6 has an 8.3" 3:2 screen with a resoluion of 2266x1448. That's pretty good, and the narrower ratio is better for reading than the old 4:3 screen. At a little under 300 grams it's the a similar size to the old Nexus 7 except about 20mm wider.

    The weird part? Apple trumpets a "new all-screen design".

    It has huge bezels.

    "An all-new enclosure features a new edge-to-edge screen, along with narrow borders and elegant rounded corners."

    It has huge bezels.

    What do they even think they're saying here? They have a claim about the new edge-to-edge screen surrounded by photos of huge bezels.

    I don't get it.


Tech News

  • Rare earth metal prices are soaring. (Tom's Hardware)

    Along with less rare metals like lithium - up 150% since last year, aluminium, and copper.

    China mines half of rare earth elements and processes 85% of production, because it produces pollution like nothing else.

    I mentioned earlier that the Salton Sea by itself contains enough lithium to supply two thirds of the world's demand. There's no shortage. It's just that extracting these materials makes a hell of a mess.


  • Kioxia - which I insist is pronounced kosher - formerly Toshiba's flash storage division is making SLC SSDs again (Tom's Hardware)

    The disadvantage is that these drives cost three times as much to make as typical TLC models. The advantage is that they're up to 10 times as fast in terms of read latency, so you can sell them for five times as much.

    That still leaves them slower than Intel's Optane, which uses an entirely different technology, but Optane costs about five times as much again.


Framework Laptop Review Video of the Day



Rossman isn't afraid to tear apart products figuratively as well as literally, but he's genuinely impressed with this one. He has some criticisms but they're relatively muted and don't require the flammenwerfer as his streams tend to (most often when talking about the city and state of New York, and the governments and property markets thereof).


Disclaimer: Hans, get the repair manual for the flammenwerfer.

8 Huge bezels? Doesn't America already have a monopoly on them? Well, we should.

In all, eight fines were issued by a district court totalling 35 million roubles ($4.26).

Don't tell me you Limey prisoner offspring don't add an extra 'o' to rubles. Lie, if necessary. Though I'm not gonna dispute the $4.26 figure.

There are so many rare earth materials here in the US we are scared to look. There may be enough to make our economy $40 Trillion in a few years.

There is so much gas in the Gulf we are not allowed to look. The Destin Dome may have enough gas to power the Earth for another 200 years.

From my experience, I would not assume or imbue our Senior Flag Officers with any special intelligence. Most I have met and worked with are at best rather mundane and not particularly smart. Unfortunately many of the "smart" O-6s are cast aside and never considered for their own Flags because they might actually speak up and preach the Truth, and many people in the Pentagon do not want the truth. Sigh

I personally knew two Marine Commandants, Robert H. Barrow and Carl E. Mindy. In fact, I had a hand in building custom homes for both of them in Cashiers, NC, as well as a home in the same development for General William (Wes) Westmoreland.

They were stand up guys and very down to earth. It was nice to have a drink or two with General Westmoreland and his wife was a most gracious hostess.

I also knew Carl Mundy III. Perhaps he'll one day become the Commandant of the Marines.

Sneak up slowly from behind the trapped skunk and toss a towel over the trap. The darkness will calm the lil critter and perhaps keep him from spraying you.
