Daily Tech News 29 September 2021

Top Story

  • Dude, where's my stuff? (JP Morgan)

    Why absolutely everything is out of stock absolutely everywhere.

    Which goes double for Australia.

  • So that's where the 3000x2000 displays have gone. (AnandTech)

    The Huawei MateBook X Pro has a 3000x200 display. On the other hand it doesn't even make an attempt at the Four Essential Keys - there aren't even labels overlaid on the cursor keys, has no storage options, and while it does have a touch screen it doesn't have the stylus that would make that display truly useful.

    Kind of meh. Also made by slave labour for the PLA.

  • The WD Red SN700 is an M.2 NVMe SSD intended for caching duty in NAS boxes. (Anandtech)

    That means it's designed for consistent performance and durability rather than the absolute peak throughput or the lowest possible price. And it's available in capacities up to 4TB, which is currently an under-served category. (I'm about to buy one, and the available models are not cheap.)

  • Twitter fell over. (Bleeping Computer)

    And less than nothing of value was lost.

    My sixth appeal of my most recent ban is pending now.

  • Microsoft's two-factor authentication for Office 365 fell over. (Bleeping Computer)

    And it failed safe, so that... Wait, what?
    This issue could potentially affect any user if they leverage MFA and either Network Policy Server (NPS) or Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to access Microsoft 365 services. This issue only affect on-premises users, and cloud hosted users are not affected.
    Their cloud service failed in such a way as to only affect those not using their cloud service.

  • Apple updated iWorks. (Thurrott.com)

    And it's not a subscription. But you have to buy a Mac, which is worse.

  • Six reasons to replace your Surface Pro 7 with a Surface Pro 8. (ZDNet)

    It's one louder.

  • Install Windows 11 on a potato. (Bleeping Computer)

    The Universal MediaCreationTool can now create install files for Windows 11. You still need an activation key, but otherwise it will install regardless of whether your computer meets all of Microsoft's strict compatibility rules, or indeed any of them.

  • Microsoft is rushing to fix a bug that leaks Exchange Server login credentials. (Bleeping Computer)

    A bug they've known about since 2017.

  • Jelly much? (9to5Mac)

    The new iPad Mini 6 suffers from visible jelly scrolling. Apple says this is entirely normal and totally not an issue because, and I quote, fuck you that's why.

    The actual cause is that the iPad Mini, a small tablet that will mostly be used to read content in portrait mode, has a screen that is natively in landscape mode. Jelly scrolling - there's video at the link - appears mostly when you rotate a display so that it's refreshing on one axis and scrolling in the other. It is to some degree unavoidable if you turn your device sideways.

    Apple saves you the trouble by delivering the device sideways out of the box.

  • RemObjects Elements for personal use is available for $199 per year. (Elements)

    It supports Object Pascal, C#, Basic, Swift, Java, and Go, and compiles to .NET, iOS, Android, WebAssembly, JVM, and native binaries for Windows, Mac, and Linux - including the Raspberry Pi.
