Daily Tech News 16 February 2022

Top Story

  • Not naming any names, but if your blockchain can go down - not just congested with high gas prices but entirely offline - then you're blockchaining wrong.

  • AMD's market cap now exceeds Intel's. (Tom's Hardware)

    This is a far cry indeed from the dark days of 2015 when their share price was in the toilet and it was looking like someone was about to flush.

    To be fair, Intel is likely undervalued here, based not on sales figures but on a decade of underwhelming R&D effort. AMD's revenues have been soaring but are still only 20% of Intel's.

    And for whatever reason, Nvidia is currently valued at more than Intel and AMD combined.

Tech News

  • Akamai has bought cloud server provider Linode for $900 million.

    For once, genuinely not a bubble. There's a story I could link, but 95% of it is statutory investor warnings.

  • Google is dying. (DKB)

    Google earned its early success by doing something hard, well: Indexing the entire damn internet in a way that was actually useful.

    In doing that they unleashed the plague that is comment spam that persists unto this day, but their search was still useful. Now it's becoming useless, not because search has changed, but because the internet is absolutely flooded with shit.

    The article notes that Reddit is much better at handling this, not because Reddit isn't flooded with shit, but because Reddit is divided into tens of thousands of small communities and if you search for a Hololive-related question in /r/hololive you know you are going to get a Hololive-related answer.

  • Writing a Minecraft server from scratch in Bash. (sdomi)

    If you know what that means, you know what it means.

    If you don't, well, it's like constructing your own fully functional fire engine entirely by hand - out of cheese.

  • Google is bringing Chrome OS to computers. (Thurrott.com)

    Actually not a bad way for the average user to revive an old PC or Mac with low-end specs. 4GB of RAM is not a fun experience on Windows or MacOS but works relatively well on ChromeOS.

  • The Australian Electoral Commission is fighting conspiracy theories online by seeking out spreaders of misinformation and turning them into toads. (ZDNet)

    Reports are that the toads are either used in vaccine research or forced to assist in the branch-stacking efforts of the Victorian ALP.

    And on the other hand there's this.

Party Like It's 1980-ish Video of the Day

Disclaimer: Not naming any names, but if your blockchain goes offline six times in twenty-four hours, you're definitely blockchaining it wrong.
