Daily Tech News 2 December 2023

Top Story

Tech News

  • This is a real photo taken with a real iPhone. (Apple Insider)

    This is an artifact of Apple's computational photography, where the camera takes multiple photos and stitches them together. Or maybe it's a side-effect of a rolling shutter, something that affects other models of digital camera. Or maybe it's a fake.

    Or maybe mirrors are portals to another dimension.


  • Tech startup Prophetic has announced the Halo, a $2000 device that triggers lucid dreams through focused beams of ultrasound. (Fortune) (archive site)

    The company says that this will allow programmers to write code in their sleep.

    Which is the least implausible part of this story, because getting developers to work 24/7 is the dream of the entire tech industry.

    Frankly, anyone who buys one of these paperweights deserves to lose their money.


  • After a surge in sales when everyone was locked in their homes during the Wuhan Bat Soup Death Plague, followed by a slump when nothing much happened, PC sales are growing again except they're not, this is a forecast, and it's shit. (Tom's Hardware)

    Canalys says that the two drivers of growth will be AI and Arm, with AI powered PCs making up 19% of the market in 2024, and Arm taking 30% of the market in 2026.

    Coughbullshitcough.

18 Two drives in my NAS barfed and died at the same time. This is not an ideal situation since I only had one fault drive. Fortunately I cache everything to some hard drives in my desktop and then sync the changes to the NAS in the middle of the night. This approach has worked well for a decade. Fortunately I had two identical discs in storage which I was able to pop into the NAS. My brand new storage pool is up and running and I'm currently copying over the data to the NAS. I should be fully restored in a couple days. Note to self: buy new hard drives.

Stirling and I are still playing bachelors here; little Dagny is due to return from her "summer camp" at Miss Linda's today. He's being quite affectionate even though he's had breakfast.

It's raining with thunder, not a heavy rain but steady, so no car washing today. I have time for breakfast, a pipe over coffee, shaving, and then I head out for haircut and other errands.

56 I wonder if anyone is doing baby steps in something like a non-compiled scripting language. Use AI/ML to read a chunk of code and responsively "figure out" what the coder is trying to do without directly relying on assembly language.

I guess it would be equivalent to letting the processor invent its own internal language instead of having a fixed instruction set like MIPS or whatever.

The puppies spend most of their time asleep. So does Mama but outside the box, either on a pad or on the cool floor. Whenever she's full of milk, she carefully steps in and lies down so the feeding frenzy begins. There's little to do except make sure she's lying down properly and occasionally move a puppy around.

I-65 in IN is toll? No thanks. That's farther east than I'm looking at anyway. I'm used to bigger-city amenities, of course, but if I can have things delivered, that's okay. Tell City is supposedly only 25 miles from Owensboro, KY, as the crow flies, but it seems to take about 30-40 minutes to drive there -- and there are not that many bridges across the Ohio in that area (?).

212 DC spent $271,000 in September to repaint Black Lives Matter on a street near the White House.

A memorandum of negotiations for the project dated April 13, 2023 indicates that the project required a foreman, operator, laborer, carpenter, and mason. Equipment included a backhoe/loader, portable air compressor, Bobcat, dump truck, pick-up truck, and service truck.

The labor for the repainting was provided by a subcontractor called Dewberry and totaled $217,680.

She only found out about it after she tried to make a payment and they said they are no longer servicing her mortgage and that someone would be in contact with her.

Nobody has contacted her and she's a brick and mortar kind of gall and Mr. Cooper doesn't have any brick or mortar operations, so this is going to go as well as you expect.

269 Many wonder why the IDF hasn't been able to destroy all of Hamas' rocket capability yet. The answer is because to eliminate that completely, the IDF will have to destroy every mosque, every school, every hospital, every clinic, and every UN building in the entire Gaza strip, and that will take a long time.

-

IIRC Media Matters set up an account and hit F5 like a horde member trying to get certain ads to come up next to companies they could then contact and say "look, there are Nazi ads next to your company!!! Stop advertising with Elon Musk and his wrongthink free speech platform!!!"

Except apparently it's impossible for the twitters to work the way they said they did the actions.

And some people noticed that the margins (or something similar) were wrong and the ads were probably photoshopped.

And Media Matters forgot that Musk and friends had access to the actual records and codes and there were never any records of the ads occuring the way they claimed.

292 The best part of the story is this:

"While appearing at The New York Times’ annual DealBook Summit, Musk accused major companies like Disney and The Washington Post of wanting to “blackmail me with advertising,” denouncing them for abandoning his platform and speculating they will “fail” for their decision.

“Go. Fuck. Yourself,” he repeated, pausing and smirking before directly addressing Disney CEO Bob Iger, who’d appeared earlier in the day: “Hey, Bob.”

This is why "redesertification" should be the plan, with a safe corridor to Lebanon, should the Gaza's like to leave rather than be blown up.

Followed by a wall with Lebanon, or perhaps a wall with James LeBron(!), then slow but constant colonization by Israel. War generally means loss of territory and the Palestinians should reap what they have sown esp with their inhuman terror tactics.
