Daily Tech News 8 July 2024

Top Story

  • Boeing is planning to plead guilty to criminal fraud. (CNBC)

    No, not for that. Not for that, either. Yes, for the two fatal 737 Max crashes, and more specifically, for the flawed flight control system that caused those crashes.

    Boeing will be fined $240 million and be required at least $450 million in new compliance and safety programs, as well as having government compliance officials operating directly within its facilities. This is in addition to a $240 million fine and a $2.5 billion settlement in 2021 for the crashes themselves.

    Much as I loathe the administrative state, the alternative looks like murder trials, sooner or later.


Tech News

  • China has seen the creation of one hundred competing LLMs. (Tom's Hardware)

    Resulting in a massive outflow of money from China to Nvidia for AI hardware, before 98 of those projects (plus or minus five) inevitably crater.


  • Current leading AI models cost around $100 million to train. The next generation currently in development could cost closer to $1 billion. (Tom's Hardware)

    So a hundred of those would cost... Carry the twelve... A lot.
    "Right now, 100 million. There are models in training today that are more like a billion." Amodei also added, "I think if we go to ten or a hundred billion, and I think that will happen in 2025, 2026, maybe 2027, and the algorithmic improvements continue a pace, and the chip improvements continue a pace, then I think there is in my mind a good chance that by that time we'll be able to get models that are better than most humans at most things."
    For a hundred billion dollars, you get something that is incapable of learning (LLMs are trained once) and is better than humans mostly at things that aren't particularly useful.

    Hooray. We're saved.


  • The looming spectre of Mt Gox paying back its users wiped $170 billion off the global crypto market. (CNBC)

    Pay back users? What insanity is this?


  • Fedora Linux 41 will retire Python 2.7. (Fedora Project)

    Python 2.7 still works, but it was released in 2.7, and support ended in 2020. The current version is 3.12, with 3.13 in beta.

    You can actually still get a supported release of Python 2.7 in the form of PyPy, a Python compiler written in Python. Since it's written in Python 2.7 and can compile Python 2.7 (as well as more recent versions like 3.10), they are planning to support Python 2.7 indefinitely.


  • What has it got in its pockets? (Liliputing)

    An eight core Ryzen 8840U, 32GB of RAM, an M.2 2230 SSD, USB4, and wifi, all packed into a folding keyboard.

    It even has the Four Essential Keys, sort of. Dedicated Home and End, and four keys marked L1 through L4. It's a little cramped, but if you want a powerful computer that can fit in your coat pocket, it is one.


Disclaimer: And it still is if you don't.

Just to clarify, this for lying about how the flight controller worked. For the crashes themselves, they were already fined $240 million in 2021 and agreed to a $2.5 billion settlement with the victims' families.

70 I bought the Higole F9B mini-computer that Pixy mentioned a few days ago.

It's pretty good, can run most anything I throw at it (Blender, PhotoShop CS6, Flash CS6, Affinity Photo. Screen is pretty easy to navigate.

No idea why one would need two NICs in it, unless it can work as a router.

Problem: it's the noisiest thing you've ever heard. Tech support tells me that this is normal because of the N100 chip, but it's too noisy to work with. If you're working in a factory or an airport that probably wouldn't be a problem.

I'll probably return it.

Dan and Val are in the laundry room. Dutchess is in the bathroom next to it. Sonny is in a pen in the kitchen. Finn is in one in the foyer. Diana and Ruth are in pens in the breakfast area. The puppies are crated near there.

Everyone has been good. I have no idea when they'll be able to go outside to do their business.

99 Heavy rains falling now, nearly 2 inches per hour.

The lowest barometric pressure reading is still to come in about 5 hours as the eye passes nearby.

101 Sure, New Republic didn't start the Hitler business; they're just following through on tradition. TBF, we had a lot of Biden-as-Hitler takes. The difference is that Trump didn't set up the lights and stage and dress the part, or wave his arms and yell.

Anybody know Hitler's golf handicap? Did he tip well?
Pretty sure he never put ketchup on his steak.

106 So it looks like The Red Wave in Europe has fizzled out, funny that.

Future Headline Now: As Nationalism and Populism gain more and more appeal and voter support world wide, their electoral victories become more and more elusive.

109 Le Pen is only about 40% . A coalition of lefties was always going to win France. The LePen stuff is a macguffin to justify whatever move the left wants to make.

110 They gonna let Slidin' Biden go all romper prompter today, or will it be stand-up improv?

The tide's turned and too many of his own dems are crying for his exit, but the Kurt Schlichter piece I read last night has me thinking Jill and Hunty and he are gonna tough it out and go the distance to election day.

112 70 Problem: it's the noisiest thing you've ever heard. Tech support tells me that this is normal because of the N100 chip, but it's too noisy to work with. If you're working in a factory or an airport that probably wouldn't be a problem.

I'll probably return it.

Well, that sucks. There's no reason it should even be audible; the N100 only draws 6W.

115 The truth is that most, if not all, of these economists share the same faulty presuppositions regarding what is euphemistically called “monetary policy.” The difference between mainstream and MMT economists is usually one of degree, not of kind.

.. the Democrats wanted to spend large amounts of money, MMT gave them an excuse.
