Daily Tech News 14 March 2022

Top Story

  • In a move that experts say could affect supply chains, China has locked down tech industry hub Shenzhen. (Tom's Hardware)

    I was reliably informed that there was no bat flu in China.

    This includes Foxconn factories making iPhones. (9to5Mac)
    China placed the 17.5 million residents of Shenzhen into lockdown for at least a week on Sunday, seeking to halt a growing Covid-19 outbreak. All bus and subway systems have been shut, and businesses, except those providing essential services, have been closed.
    Expect lead times on a lot of things to slip, if it's not in stock today.

    This is partly why I have two main laptops each with 64GB of RAM and 5TB of SSD. I don't know when the supply chain is going to become unfucked, and I can't afford to not have a working laptop.

    I also can't afford not to have working internet, but here I am.

Tech News

  • At least once I move house I'll be able to upgrade from the 80Mbps I got before it stopped working to at least 500Mbps.

  • Veloren is a multiplayer voxel RPG written in Rust. (Veloren)

    And open source. Wait, it is open source, right? Yep, there we go.

    Voxels mean that 3D objects are made up of little 3D cubes, rather than being a 2D texture printed over a 3D block the way Minecraft mostly is. The 3D equivalent of pixel art.

    The game looks pretty neat.

  • Congratulations, you just invented upvote spam. (DKB)

    Any time you use a proxy to measure something of value, you create a matching incentive to generate that proxy without generating any value.

    Google's PageRank algorithm created comment spam. It simply wasn't a thing before that.

    And nobody seems to be learning the lesson.

  • You can't get the chips, you know: So Ford is just going to sell cars without them. (The Verge)

    If it's something you can live without - like back seat climate control functions - they're just going to ship the damn things and give you a discount. But probably not much of one.
