Daily Tech News 25 January 2023

Top Story

  • If you needed another reason not to buy an M2 MacBook or Mac Mini, the performance of 512GB SSDs has been cut in half compared to the previous generation. (Tom's Hardware)

    It's the same thing they did previously to 256GB models: Cut down on the number of flash memory channels on the SSD to save costs, and cut the performance in half in the process. The entry level 2023 Mac Mini actually has worse disk performance than the 2018 model.

    On a real computer this wouldn't be a problem. For less than $100 you can buy a decent 1TB SSD and just swap it in. On a Mac, of course, you can't upgrade anything, ever, and the upgrades you pay for at time of purchase cost twice as much as they would anywhere else. (In the case of RAM, four times as much.)

    Also MacBooks lack the Four Essential Keys, but so do most otherwise good laptops so that's something of a moot point.


  • Australia Day tomorrow, so I get to sleep in and maybe get a chance to fix some things if I'm not overtaken by kidney stones yet again.


Tech News

  • SK Hynix has announced 9.6GHz laptop RAM, which the company brands as LPDDR5T. (WCCFTech)

    That's fast. I don't think there's a chip out there that needs memory that fast. Even AMD's new Ryzen 7040 range with 12 RDNA3 graphics cores probably wouldn't need that much bandwidth.


  • Intel is deliberately flooding the PC market with stuff forcing prices down. (WCCFTech)

    This isn't working on graphics cards since Intel's cards aren't hot sellers, and Intel doesn't make SSDs anymore (they sold that division to the same SK Hynix mentioned above), so this report is really talking about CPUs.

    This will likely be a good year to buy CPUs. Might eventually also be a good year to buy a graphics card, but certainly isn't right now.


  • The Legion Bulletin of Mad Atomic Scientists has moved the hands of the Doomsday Clock forward by ten seconds, leaving the world trembling on the brink of disaster at just ninety seconds to midnight. (NBC)

    Yeah, could you assholes stop that? Hard to have a New Year's party if it never strikes midnight.
    The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists was founded in 1945 to examine global security issues related to science and technology. Each year, the group consults with a board of sponsors to analyze the world's most pressing threats in order to determine where the Doomsday Clock's hands should be set.
    And somehow the answer is always "time to give us more money".


  • This looks like the motherboard being used by that Storaxa NAS. (Liliputing)

    Some people are casting doubt on the Storaxa, pointing out that the N6005 CPU doesn't have enough PCIe lanes to run all the devices listed. Which, uh, appears to be true. The only way it could work is to run a PCIe switch off a cable plugged into the M.2 slot on the motherboard, which would leave the four M.2 storage slots running at half speed. That is, half the speed of one slot, spread over four slots.

    That's still faster than all four 2.5Gb Ethernet ports combined, though, so not the end of the world.

    And it also raises the question of where the Ryzen 5800U model is coming from. That has a lot more PCIe lanes, but requires an entirely new motherboard.

    So maybe this is a Kickstarter to take a wait-and-see approach on if you can't afford to burn $280.


Disclaimer: Or in my case, another $280. Ugh.

Been there. Worst pain I ever experienced for a couple of hours, then bent over to raise the manual garage door so as to drive to the doctor and I felt something and the pain went just like that. Passed the stone a couple of hours later.

Medical students hate the test on kidney stones, it's the hardest test to pass.

10 The first episode of Barnaby Jones from 1973 is on MeTV. When you see other things Buddy Ebsen did besides playing Jed Clampett, you realize just how good an actor he was. He played villains from time to time, and they were nasty creatures; and his Barnaby is very professional and believable.

This is my second 17" HP laptop. Love it. The first one? hinges broke from dropping a foot or so too many times (cats) as well as poor design - metal hinge screwed into plastic. It has the 4 keys (numeric keypad too), an SSD as well as a 1 TB HD.
I waited for after Xmas sales and got a $500+ PC for #300 or so straight from HP.

17 My MacBook Air from 2014 is a great laptop. But I inherited it from a former faculty member, I didn't lay out that kind of $$$, and I wouldn't now. Stirling the great black kitten has chewed and ruined 2 charging cords, though, $87 each. This third one I've covered in a corrugated plastic hose you can buy for cheap at Autozone. He hasn't shown any interest in it since.

I have 2 other Dell laptops work bought for me or that I took over from someone there who was upgrading. And my boss gave me a LeNovo machine that needed a new battery. Once I took care of that, it was great.

"It is time for the unvaccinated to take responsibility for their actions and to work with the rest of us to find a solution to this crisis. We cannot afford to let their selfishness and lack of action continue to harm our communities. It is time for the unvaccinated to step up and do the right thing.

The unvaccinated should by any moral measuring stick have done more to warn about the potential risks -- to help us make informed decisions about our health. And they must now ask us for our forgiveness."

We tried to warn these sheep. TRIED. And they laughed and called us names. FK. Them.

78 I don't know if I believe that all the people shrieking about non vaccinated doing the righteous thing really believe that. In fact with all the reports of serious side effects and deaths many have figured out that getting vaccinated was the wrong thing ,but they believe what was told them or they needed to get the shot for their job and they were convinced to do it by those they love. Rather than acknowledge the problems they yell that the unvaccinated are the problem and so don't have to look at their own pain or fear or loss and don't make the those responsible the object of their anger.

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists was founded in 1945 to examine global security issues related to science and technology. Each year, the group consults with a board of sponsors to analyze the world's most pressing threats in order to determine where the Doomsday Clock's hands should be set.
And somehow the answer is always "time to give us more money".

180 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) at the University of Texas Austin,” the report found that the institution has created “an entrenched bureaucracy with an ever expanding ideological agenda.”

The NAS states that “UT Austin has created and implemented a long series of institutional policies in pursuit of the often-vague, often-politicized goals of DEI” and that the policies “influence vast areas of university life.”

Notably, the report found that UT Austin’s DEI agenda was mired in Critical Race Theory, a leftist academic framework that applies Marxist theories of oppression to issues of race and identity. Critical Race Theory has been implemented in the medical school under the guise of “health equity.”

Once any bee thinks and wonders to itself, "Hey, how is it that I am flying?", it immediately loses the ability to fly and can never do so again.
