Daily Tech News 26 March 2024

Top Story

  • Europe is investigating Apple for its malicious compliance with the new Digital Markets Act. (The Register)

    And Google.

    And Facebook.

    Do all three companies lie and cheat and steal? Sure.

    Are they all woke beyond possibility of redemption? Well, Google certainly is. Apple while woke as hell notably produces genuinely well-engineered hardware on a regular schedule.

    Do they suck less than the European government even after granting all of that? Absolutely.

7 On the ONT, Miklos asked if I had red beans and rice last night. There is a generations-long tradition here of having that on Monday, because housewives did laundry on that day, and they needed something that could cook by itself all day long while they did those chores. Unfortunately I did not grow up with that tradition, so when I do have that dish or a reasonable facsimile thereof, it could happen any day.

Last night was close: chicken and sausage gumbo, which has some rice in it. I supercharged it with some canned chicken grilled in the pan with chili powder and paprika!

The Australian government is demanding that X, Facebook, and other social media companies censor content that its fact-checkers say is inaccurate. But now, one of the government's main fact-checker groups has been caught spreading misinformation about renewables and nuclear.

Posted by: Skip at March 26, 2024 05:25 AM (fwDg9)

62 No biggie:

The bridge spans the Patapsco River and carries an estimated 11.5 million vehicles annually. This collapse means a major shipping lane in and out of the Port of Baltimore City has been severed.



With no commercial vessels sailing in and out of Baltimore City anytime soon, this is catastrophic for port operations and could spark major supply chain snarls in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

Last year, according to the Maryland government's website, the Port of Baltimore managed over 52 million tons of international cargo valued at more than $80 billion, ranking it as the ninth busiest port in the United States.

Back in August 2023, Patricia Hernandez was reportedly fired following a personnel disagreement."

It's shocking to me that a gaming-related site would just so happen to have two female leads back to back.

Not that ladies don't play video games or write about video games, but the notion that two ladies were the back-to-back best candidates for written content about video games seems incredibly unlikely.

Every bunch of years they have to dredge the Delaware River leading into the Philly port. IIRC to a depth of 50 feet.

142 During a media briefing, Baltimore City Fire Chief James Wallace said crews received several calls of multiple people in the water and portions of the Key Bridge collapsed. So far, rescue crews pulled two people from the water. One refused treatment. The other was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Wallace said he didn't know how many vehicles were on the bridge when it collapsed. But he did say sonar picked up vehicles.

Crews are still in an active search and rescue effort and have several aerial units helping them look for as many as seven people still in the water. Wallace said those units will be working around the bridge for the next 8 - 12 hours.

Officials have yet to board the ship that crashed into the bridge. They will do that after they've inspected the ship. Wallace said the crew of the ship is still on board.

157 Donald Trump can't even steer a boat under a bridge without hitting it. Why... when I was a young ensign, not many people know I was in the Navy, true story... I happened to be walking through the bridge on the nuclear submarine I was assigned to, well, the damn russkies has shot a torpedo at us and there was no hope for escape. It just so happened we were over an underwater canyon which I knew everything about because I did underwater mapping in the Navy Academy. Anyway I took control of the ship and dove us into the canyon. We ducked and weaved down the lane. At the end there was a sharp turn at a mount called "massive". I delayed the turn, the crew was about to mutiny! They shouted that we were out of the lane by a boat length! But at the last moment, I commanded full right rudder and starboard engine full reverse. Son of a bitch it worked! The torpedo missed us by feet! And I was hailed a hero by the crew, but I told everyone to keep quiet about it. True story!

I don't think an anchor would have much effect at slowing down a tanker traveling at that speed in the soft bottom of a bay.

200 Morning peeps

Windy as hell here this morning. At first light I need to see what damage has been done. Heard some stuff earlier... might just be deck furniture blowing around.

Or the side of the house coming off.

Doubt I heard a bridge collapse...

207 Last week Sen. Kennedy indirectly demonstrated that Rhode Island’s bloviating Senator Sheldon Whitehouse may be the stupidest member of the Senate, because Whitehouse invited a teen-age Olympic cross-country skier as an “expert” witness on climate change. After Kennedy finishes here, you need to ask why Whitehouse could have thought it was a good idea to submit this earnest young man to such a thorough humiliation

I did not usually take that bridge, but it will back up traffic on i95 and the tunnels.

Posted by: Nevergiveup at March 26, 2024 07:22 AM (pVWRI)

209 I have been across that bridge countless times. I'm not a fan of driving around Baltimore, but the harbor has turned into a major port for container ships. Reminds me when the bridge on I-75 collapsed between St. Pete and south and north up I-75. That was also a ship hitting a pier. One of the casualty was a Greyhound bus. The new Sunshine bridge is high enough to avoid something like that happening again.

The anchors is deployed at the bow, is it not? In fifty feet of water that takes more then a few seconds to hit bottom.

It almost looked to me as if the captain was heading between the furthest left side of the bridge, began to change his mind, lost power and ten seconds later is turning directly into the pillar.

From the direction he was coming any buoys ahead may have been deceiving as to where the channel was.

Thank the stars (and Joe) that we now have a bumper crop of murdering migrants (who built this country) to rebuild that bridge.

And we can rename it for someone other than a dead white guy!

In a way. It not doing what you want to maintain the "it just works" mantra is a bit off putting, as is the lack of a microSD slot for the same reason. And doesn't strike me as providing independence. More "do it this way or you're not doing it."

But I'm trying it because why not?
