Daily Tech News 3 December 2021

Top Story

  • Ellipse and ellipsis have the same plural. That's annoying.

  • Twitter has banned 2000 genocide apologist accounts linked to the Chinese Communist Party. (ZDNet)

    That's good.

    "Every account and piece of content associated with these operations has been permanently removed from the service," Twitter said.
    That's retarded.

    Yes, remove their access, but leave their posts there so that everyone can see what bullshit they were up to.

    This paranoid need to erase everything considered bad utterly from existence is a trait entirely shared by Twitter and the CCP.

Tech News

  • People who attended Anime NYC last month might have a mild case of the sniffles. (CBS)

    It's a convention, in New York, in November, so... Yeah.

  • Google has delisted the Pirate Bay and 100 related domains within the Netherlands following a court order. (TorrentFreak)

    The thing is, the court order didn't apply to Google. They decided to do this all on their own.

  • The FTC has filed a lawsuit to block Nvidia's acquisition of Arm. (Anandtech)

    Eh. Whatever.

  • TSMC has entered risk production of 3nm chips. (Tom's Hardware)

    Risk production is the silicon equivalent of early access on Steam. It's not 100% done, and there's no refunds, but if you want to get access early you can start right away.

    Well, except that it takes as much as 20 weeks for a chip to traverse the manufacturing pipeline, so if you start right away you might get something back some time in April.

    Volume production is expected to start late next year, with products shipping in 2023.

    It's a pretty big advance though, packing up to 70% more transistors into a given area than 5nm, which in turn is 80% denser than the 7nm process that is common right now. (The computer I'm typing this on is 14nm, which is positively antediluvian.)

  • Microsoft has daddy issues. (Bleeping Computer)

    If you load up Edge and try to download Chrome - from which codebase Edge is derived - it throws a tantrum.

    Well, allegedly. I see the ad in Bing search, but not all of the other items listed in the article. Though I've stomped pretty hard on notifications throughout Windows and my default search engine even in Edge is DuckDuckGo.

  • If you have a WiFi router, it's almost certainly insecure, and you should set it on fire right now. (Bleeping Computer)

    If you have an Asus, um, whatever model it was I used to have, it might even helpfully do this for you. When I saw the smoke coming out of it I grabbed the power plug and yanked it out right away. But I grabbed it at the router end and it turned out that what I was grabbing was boiling hot molten plastic, so that was not a lot of fun.

    Much simpler to act now and just throw all your electronics in the nearest dumpster.
