Daily Tech News 12 February 2024

Top Story

  • How Venus got its Zoozve back. (Sky and Telescope)

    Back in the dim, dusty reaches of two weeks ago, a cute and amusing story appeared on Twitter about how a children's poster of the Solar System came out with a moon of Venus mistakenly labelled Zoozve.

    Mistakenly because (a) Venus doesn't have any moons - not exactly, anyway - and because the designation of the asteroid so labelled is actually 2002VE 68. The creation of Zoozve was an accident of the artist's bad handwriting.

    But 2002VE 68 is not just any asteroid, but what is known as a quasi-moon; it doesn't orbit Venus the way the Moon orbits the Earth, but dances a intricate gavotte around both Venus and the Sun that is expected to last several hundred years before the partners part ways.

    It was the first such quasi-moon discovered; since 2002 another eight have been found, seven of them around Earth.

    And since all it had - until now - was a catalog number, it was eligible to be named if someone could (a) submit a formal proposal and (b) convince enough members of the relevant IAU committee to vote for it.

    So they did, and now the poster is retroactively correct.

  • The future is hydrogen. (Inside EEVs)

    In five billion years when the Sun expands and swallows the Earth.

    In the meantime, not so much.


  • Switzerland was not invaded by three million zombie toothbrushes. (Ars Technica)

    Darn.


  • Zen 5 could have double the floating point performance of Zen 4. (WCCFTech)

    Zen 4 already squashes Zen 3 and Intel chips on any benchmark that can use AVX512 instructions, because while Zen 4 only implements a cut-down version of AVX512 that breaks 512-bit instructions into two 256-bit instructions, Zen 3 and Intel's consumer chips don't support it at all.

    Zen 3 because it just doesn't; Intel because the P cores do but the E cores don't, and that created such a headache that it was simpler to just burn the functionality out with a laser before the chips left the factory.

    How good it is we don't know yet. Intel's server chips that implement full AVX512 have to significantly reduce clock speeds when you are using those instructions because it burns power like mad. But AMD chips are more power-efficient than Intel - currently - so they might not feel as much heat.


  • Palworld creator PocketPair is hiring. (WCCFTech)

    You do need to be able to program, though, so that leaves out most of the recent Big Tech castaways.

11 The funny thing is, apparently AVX-512 is supposed to be really good at AI calculations, so if they hadn't yanked it to make E-Cores a thing, they'd be way better able to compete in the CPU AI workloads they tried to market as their big edge over AMD's chips.

But they had to burn it out with a laser after the first wave of Alder Lake, so it's gone now.

I swear, watching Intel step on rakes is like something out of the cartoons right now. They need to get their freaking act together.

"Though hydrogen car manufacturers usually include a large amount of free fuel in the purchase of a vehicle, once that runs out consumers are left with eye-watering prices from stations that are often broken, out of fuel, or swarmed with long lines."

Huh, there's a shocker.

Posted by: Bruce at February 12, 2024 04:55 AM (vd8XM)

15 Few companies can make a better case for it than Shell, though, as the cheapest way to produce hydrogen involves a lot of natural gas.

Better than burning it in a gas stove though, right?

You couldn't buy the car.
You had to fill it at one station downtown (where traffic was always horrible.

89 The number of cops hurt by suspects surged 20% in 2022, when 4,724 uniformed officers suffered injuries in attacks, compared to 3,933 in 2021.

But the law enforcement nightmare grew worse last year, when 4,077 cops were hurt by suspects in just the first nine months of 2023 — on pace for a record-breaking 5,436 injuries, the latest NYPD stats show.

As Planned.

It's not that I care what the hell she does. It's the concerted effort to corrupt our youth that pisses me off. Which is what I see.

They had a camera on her.
When she picked up the beer that camera displayed it on the Jumbo-tron knowing full well the entire audience in the stadium and television audience could see it also.

She might just have jumped the shark. Not that I care. I just hope that every father with a teenage daughter has a discussion with them about moderate alcohol consumption vs alcohol abuse.

The consensus on Twit/X is that KC should have called for holding way too often and wasn't.

Last year against Philadelphia the refs handed the game to KC late in the 4th quarter with a holding call against Philly that looked pretty damn inconsequential to me.

184 Imagine something like the 50 all-state high school ensembles forming a choir to perform for 20 minutes at the superbowl. No fireworks, no strippers, etc. Just dedicated youth and uplifting music sang by the most talented kids in each state, all performing together.

I wonder how it would be received.

185 178 When did they change the OT rules?
Posted by: Zombie Robbo the Llama Butcher at February 12, 2024 07:51 AM (T+Iwg)

Buffalo complained about OT a few years ago after losing to
(guess who) Kansas City in the playoffs, and it was changed after that.

186 While I am sure that there was much gnashing of teeth about it, I like the name Zoozve.

Doesn't seem like a very serious or manly name.

I'm still wondering how to pronounce it. "Zooz-vee"?

Very well, and it's a great idea. So they wouldn't consider it.

There's no roller skates or stripper poles, so that's out.

200 In dumpster diving news, the ancient Compaq laptop I fished out of the DoD contractor's dumpster did have a working hard drive, which I removed and examined. It was last updated in 2002, and far from being DoD related, seems to have been used by the local hospice volunteer group!
What it was doing in that building is a mystery to me. I'm trying to remember now what was in that part of the building 20+ years ago, I know it wasn't the current tenant but it seems bizarre an office or stock room would have got untouched for that length of time!
I guess it's not impossible but Wow.
The laptop wants to power up but can't, I'm thinking BIOS battery but I handed it to The Kid and she can fool around with it. She loves old timey computer shit.

201 I didn't have to check who won. Someone was shooting off fireworks. And I did see guys setting up to grill in several locations, before the game.
