Daily Tech News 31 March 2022

Top Story

  • Repeat after me: We have a hot prospect expecting to close today but if you act right away...

    Actually, this time I believe them, because (a) they provided details that were not to their advantage and cooled me down on this property, and (b) they didn't claim a hot prospect so much as a room temperature one.

    Either way, bleah. I'll have my agent check out my top two alternates but I'm getting ready to activate Plan B.

  • I'm not sure there is a top story today. Well, the Washington Post says that some of the cryptographic signatures on the Laptop from Hell check out proving that the emails are from who they say they are and did in fact say what they say when they were sent, but we knew that 18 months ago.

Tech News

  • YouTube has added 100 free TV shows and over 1000 free movies. (Mashable)

    Where are they? What are they? No-one knows. You can't browse the list; you can't search for them; and if I click the link to see even a sample of the TV shows I get a purple monkey error.

    "It's personalised" says YouTube, which apparently translates to "fuck you".

    Also, the small number of free movies I could find that are actually viewable in Australia are crap. But then so is Netflix.

  • Canada will ban sales of combustion engine cars by 2035. (Engadget)

    Has Canada ever seen Canada? There is no country in the world that would benefit more from global warming or that is less suited to electric vehicles.

  • Phenylephrine is useless. (In the Pipeline)

    On the one hand, it's not a precursor to meth. On the other hand, it does nothing. And there are many cheaper substances that fit both those roles.

  • QNAP again. (Bleeping Computer)
