Daily Tech News 24 May 2021

Top Story

  • So apparently yesterday's AMV - Kevin Caldwell's classic Engel - doesn't play in the US. There's only one copy of it on YouTube that I can find so I can't even try to offer an alternative.

    It is still available for download on AnimeMusicVideos.com. It's video number 230 on that site. The latest arrival is number 206,621.

  • If Apple is the only organisation capable of defending our privacy, it's time to panic. (The Guardian)

    Apple isn't protecting your private information, you obtuse womble. It's monopolising it.

    But it is good to see the Big Tech companies fighting among themselves; it's when they all agree on something that you really know you're about to get screwed. Like legislation with bipartisan support, it is never about what is good for you.

Anime of the day is... No. Scrub that. You're not ready for that one.

Anime of the day is Maison Ikkoku, the one Rumiko Takahashi story that actually had an ending. The manga ran simultaneously with Urusei Yatsura - she must have been working night and day back then - and the 96 episode anime series kicked in one week to the day after the final TV episode of Urusei Yatsura.

(I just checked, and no, there was a gap of nearly a year before Ranma started airing.)

Louis Rossman MacBook Logic Board Repair Warranty Job Video of the Day

Before Hololive I watched every single one of these. Well, more I played them on the third monitor while I worked to help mute the screams of the damned from next door. (I work from home and my neighbours have small children. About thirty of them it sometimes seems.)

What Poor Company Will Steve Eviscerate This Time Video of the Day

Cyberpower. This one almost didn't suck.

I mentioned in the Dell video that there was a second part that went over the rest of the problems. Here it is.

Disclaimer: Oh my God, it's full of crap. Actually, I was wondering if Dell bloatware was to blame for recent poor performance of my own desktop system. Turns out that no, it was Windows automagically migrating my swap file from the NVMe SSD to the 5400 RPM hard drive. Thanks, Windows. That sucked.
