Daily Tech News 16 November 2021

Top Story

  • If the facts are on your side, pound on the facts. If the law is on your side, pound on the law. If neither is on your side, sweep the jury with an AR-15.

  • If you don't have an AR-15 just blow up one of your own satellites. (Ars Technica)

    Russia appears to have tested an anti-satellite weapon and in the process created an entire cloud of anti-satellite weapons, with over 1500 pieces of high-velocity shrapnel being tracked and innumerable smaller pieces posing a hazard to everything in low Earth orbit.

Tech News

  • New York City has passed a bill requiring bias audit of AI technology used in making hiring decisions. (Protocol)

    This is actually a good move. Most of this stuff is worthless, trivial algorithms dressed up as AI. If all this does force people to stop claiming AI when there is none, good enough.

  • Perfecting the New York street. (Curbed)

    By making absolutely every aspect of it worse.

    To be fair, they're not attempting to make the perfect street, or even a passable street, they want to make the perfect New York street, which is to say, Cthulhu in pavement.

  • Want to get a new Intel 12th generation CPU but don't want to move to Windows 11? Wondering how much performance you will lose by sticking with Windows 10? Turns out for gaming the answer is around -2%. (Tech Powerup)

    That is, Windows 10 is on average slightly faster than Windows 11. Also, DDR4 memory is - currently - slightly faster on average than DDR5 in gaming benchmarks.

    That will change over time, but for now the biggest advantage of DDR5 is that it provides lots of memory bandwidth for high-performance integrated graphics, which is not noticeably something Intel's desktop CPUs possess. I'll take another look in January when the 12th gen laptop chips are expected to launch.

  • More leaked benchmarks show that the upcoming 12800H mobile chip is both faster and slower than the 12700H. (WCCFTech)

    I think we should ignore these benchmarks until the parts actually ship. They're garbage.

  • Hackers are taking over Alibaba cloud servers to mine cryptocurrencies. (Bleeping Computer)

    Which is illegal in China in the first place.

  • Air is the new surface. (American Shipper)

    Ocean freight is so screwed up at this point that air freight is looking attractive. Costs are up 150% compared to before the Bat Flu, but costs for surface freight have increased as much as tenfold. And air freight is much faster and bypasses the need for long-distance trucking or rail transfers to and from port locations.

  • Intel's 4004 turns 50. (WCCFTech)

    The first microprocessor was designed for calculators and only supported 4 bit data. It was followed by the 8008 in 1972, and the much more successful 8080 in 1974, which launched the microcomputer industry.

    It's been all downhill from there.

Party Like It's 1979 Video of the Day

This is practically the Hololive anthem, it comes up so often.
