In Memoriam

  • Kentaro Miura, creator of the massively popular manga series Berserk, passed away earlier this month from an acute aortic dissection. He was only 54.

    Berserk has sold over fifty million copies and is well known for its fantastically detailed artwork - at least in recent volumes - and its long delays between volumes. It looks like the conclusion to the series has now gone to the great TBA in the sky.

    I haven't watched the Berserk anime - and the most recent series was roundly panned - but if you don't mind scenes of graphic graphicness and are willing to put in a couple of volumes while the illustrator's art evolves, I can highly recommend the manga.

    It sure as hell ain't for kids though.

Top Story

  • HP's Omen 16 and 17 have the Four Essential Keys. (WCCFTech)

    In fact, they have the ten essential keys - the entire cursor area you'd find on a full desktop keyboard is present exactly as it should be.

    They also have eight-core CPUs from Intel or AMD, up to 64GB of RAM - user upgradeable - and 1TB of NVMe SSD - probably also user upgradeable, and a 2560x1440 165Hz display with 100% sRGB colour.

    The 16" model has AMD or Intel CPUs and Radeon 6000 family or Nvidia graphics up to the RTX 3070; the 17" model is Intel only with Nvidia graphics up to the RTX 3080.

    I/O includes one USB-C (Thunderbolt on Intel models), three USB-A, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, a full size SD card slot, a combo audio jack, and wired Ethernet.

    They don't specify dimensions or weight but this is a serious laptop for serious laps, not some disposable bit of thin-and-light frippery.

    All models ship next month with prices starting at $1050.

Anime of the day is Princess Tutu from 2002, the greatest story ever told about a duck saving the world through the power of ballet.
