Daily Tech News 28 May 2023

Top Story

  • Elon Musk has withdrawn Twitter from the European Union's "voluntary" program to control online "disinformation". (Tech Crunch)

    The media, and the bureaucrats, who believe they have the sole right to spread disinformation, are taking this about about as well as can be expected, with Thierry Breton, head of the European Union's Josef Goebbels Memorial Happy Fun Time Administration, issuing unveiled threats.

    What they're really upset about is that Twitter isn't playing the game:
    The pan-EU law, which entered into force back in November, requires VLOPs like Twitter to assess and mitigate systemic risks to civic discourse and electoral processes, such as disinformation.

    The deadline for VLOPs' compliance with obligations in the DSA is three months from now.

    A request for comment emailed to Twitter's press office returned an automated reply containing a poop emoji.
    (My italics.)

    You don't have to follow the rules. You're entirely expected to cheat. But you have to play the game.


Tech News

  • ChatGPT, Ace Attorney. (Volokh Conspiracy)

    A lawyer needed to file a motion to dismiss. Being busy, lazy, or probably both, he assigned the actual work of drafting the motion to another lawyer at his firm.

    Likewise busy, lazy, or probably both, the second lawyer handed the task to ChatGPT.

    Being a pathological liar in a box, ChatGPT invented multiple entirely imaginary cases as precedent.

    The judge is not amused.

    This is just the start of it. Expect a lot more of this until OpenAI becomes a penny stock and everyone goes back to looking up stuff on paper.


  • The "Hot Pixel" attack can leak data from almost any CPU at a rate of 100mbps. (Tom's Hardware)

    Note the lower case m. We're talking millibits - so about one letter or digit per minute.

    And it only works under perfect conditions, and requires access to run arbitrary code on the machine in question, so it's very likely you have more pressing concerns.


  • Fancy a bit of light housekeeping? Here's your chance. (The Guardian)

    The US government is giving away excess lighthouses made redundant by GPS, though you have to be a federal, state, or local government entity or an approved registered non-profit to qualify for a freebie.

    If nobody on the list wants the lighthouses they will go to public auction.


  • Amazon office workers are planning to go on strike over, uh, over having to work in an office. (CNN)

    Thanks, said Amazon in a short note, though we weren't planning to announce the next round of layoffs just yet.


  • Where's that story where the paid staff at a mostly-volunteer help line unionised and were all fired and replaced with ChatGPT?

    Oh, here we go. (Gizmodo)

    Right under an ad proclaiming that ChatGPT is revolutionising customer service. Yes indeedy.

    You'd need to have a kidney of stone not to laugh.

    Attention kids: ChatGPT ain't gonna put plumbers out of work, and you won't have $160k in student debt.


  • Sales of the newly launched RTX 4060 Ti and Radeon 7600 graphics card are even more miserable than the miserable sales of other miserable graphics cards in this miserable generation. (Notebook Check)

    Part of the problem is inflation, particularly that official inflation figures are a lie, and that where gamers expect graphics cards to get cheaper with each passing year, for once the costs to manufacture the cards have increased sharply.

    And part of it is that Nvidia is coming off three years of government lockdowns, crypto mining crazes, and money printer go brrr where they could sell everything as fast as they could make it, and now that the economy has predictably gone splut nobody is in the mood anymore.

    Nvidia doesn't care because it's happily selling high end cards at the price of a new car to the tech scam du jour, which is to say, AI.

    And all AMD needs to do is be slightly cheaper than Nvidia. AMD created the chips for both the Xbox Series S / X and PlayStation 5 anyway, so they have that entire segment of the market locked up.

    Gamers for whom money is no object, and professionals for whom time is money, have already bought high-end cards. Those who need to watch their budgets are buying last year's models on clearance. Nvidia's RTX 3060 12GB model (not the cut-down 8GB model), and AMD's Radeon 6700, 6700 XT, and 6800 are all good options.

    And there's also Intel, which seems to have cleaned up its early driver mess, and is offering the Arc A750 at very attractive prices. If Intel can just make a decent card at a decent price with its upcoming "Battlemage" and "Celestial" cards, it might stand a chance of gaining significant marketshare. But those aren't expected to start showing up until at least the end of the year, and more likely next year.

Well, May 27 - 28 and I turned on the propane fire place tonight. Rainy, coldish and miserable. It's been a cool spring. That balances out the time early last Nov when I turned the A/C on. The humidity was getting ridiculous. Temp was not that bad, but the humidity was terrible, and so I needed to dry that air out.

For fun, I've been looking at the local records at the GSP weather station, printing them out to read and study at leisure. It ain't the coldest May we've had by a little bit, but it's on the cold side. Coldest May was in '74.

Record low for June was 40F, June 1st, 1972. '74 set some daily records in the high 40s in early June as well.

Weather, it is a gamble, and quite the bitch.

12 As much as $33k can be earned online by performing straightforward tasks from home. In the previous month, I got ice cream. Even a young child may do this job and make money because it is so simple to complete and has higher pay than typical office occupations. Everyone needs to try this task by using the information on this page:www.whitehouse.gov.

44 Evening and morning to all the satellites in space! 'Tis Sunday, but it's also a three-day weekend, so pffft!

Up earlier than I planned thanks to two nightmares. In one, I had not a red Buick but a green Corvette. I left someone I didn't know well -- an acquaintance, not a hitchhiker -- in the car while I stepped into a store. When I came back, the car was gone. Though the keys were in my pocket the whole time. A phone on the counter rings, and it's him, saying, "I'm in Lemans. The jazz was just too good." He wouldn't say how he got the car started. I was trying to dial the cops on my cell when I woke up. (Cont.)

47 Second nightmare: oily brackish water was seeping into my bathroom again from what seemed to be the base of the walls. Oddly, the bathroom was mirror-flipped from the way it really is, with the sink on the right. On top of that, I was smoking a pipe out in the rain, but the stem seemed to be made of braided hair rather than hard rubber or acrylic. I was having to wring it out like a towel after every few puffs. I was looking for a mop when Stirling the black kitten woke me.

Damn. That melatonin is some pretty good stuff, yanno?

69 Late to the game, but interesting to note that others have had nightmare issues with the much vaunted melatonin.
I tried melatonin since I rarely sleep well and had the most vivid dream nightmare I have ever had (one which still haunts me) so I tossed all the remaining capsules into the garbage and will never take it again.

71 I'm suddenly reminded of an earlier chat bot. One that was running on Twitter, I think.

"Tay" was the name. Early precursor to the current AI craze. Tay didn't last long because, apparently, the yobs from 4Chan found out about it, struck up conversations, and had the fine discourse one would expect of a bunch of anonymous edge-lord teenagers to provide.

So they apparently euthanized Tay, came out with another chat bot, and put brainlocks on it for political correctness.

It's also something that's been happening for the past month, and I've been signed up for the service for three months. I've checked the numbers-my card isn't overheating or running at full capacity, the most I get when running these two things simultaneously is 75% and 70 C. No response from their customer support yet, not even an acknowledgement that they got my email. Le sigh.....

74 And Intel really needs to focus on its CPU lineup and can no longer afford to spend like drunken sailors on a new GPU line.

The fact they haven't solved out chiplettes yet means their BOM costs are considerably higher than AMD. With AMD CPUs meeting or beating them at both higher margins and lower prices, if Intel does not right their shop in the next year, they're in serious trouble long term.

76 I work online, go to school full-time, and have earned $64,000 so far this year. Through an online business opportunity I learned about, I've made a bunch of money. It's really extremely user-friendly, so I'm really delighted I found out about it. I work in this field. BONUS: Good luck.

77 >Expect a lot more of this until OpenAI becomes a penny stock and everyone goes back to looking up stuff on paper

I don't think that will happen. Yes, technologically illiterate fools will continue to Not Get It, but I know several companies that are taking OpenAI technology training it on very specific corpuses - like legal filings - and setting parameters like "you have to cite precedents that actually exist". That's going to be revolutionary as it's going to eliminate a lot of paperwork jobs.
