Daily Tech News 14 April 2022

Top Story

  • Contracts exchanged today. I also bought a new dinner set that matches the colour scheme of the new house. (Gibson Elite Casa Gris in case you're wondering.)

    I'm going to need to stay up to 3am playing Minecraft until I recover.

  • My current ISP doesn't offer adequate business broadband plans. They offer cheap 100/40 plans, and expensive plans at 250Mb symmetric and up, but not the common 250/100 plan. So I'm probably going to finally switch providers.

    I'm currently on a 100/40 plan - but that's the best I can get here. At the new house that's almost the starting point.

  • Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti is here and it's, well, expensive. (Tom's Hardware)

    Not bad, just expensive. Not much more expensive than the regular 3090 but that is already very very expensive - close to $2000 if you can even find one.

    AMD's own overpriced minor upgrade is also on its way.

    The 6950 XT appears to be even worse value for money. The model they spotted is water-cooled, yes, but it's over A$3000, when a regular 6900 XT can be easily found for A$1700.

Tech News

  • Zero Nines Uptime, or, Atlassian and the terrible horrible no good very bad #TwoWeeks. (Pragmatic Engineer)

    How a major cloud services provider achieved worse uptime than some random guy running 100,000 websites on a broken $50 server.

  • The gambler's fallacy is not a fallacy if the events are not independent. (Stranger Apologies)

    There, saved you from reading 90,000 words looking for the part where he bothers to explain why he's not obviously wrong.

  • I've described Docker before as the world's least efficient package manager but it doesn't have to be. (Florin Lipan)

    You can create a 186k Docker container that provides a working web server. It's just that no-one does.

  • Intel's 13th generation Raptor Lake parts could hit 5.8GHz. (WCCFTech)

    That's on the high-performance P cores, with the low-power E cores hitting 4.5GHz.

    Ryzen 7000, also due later this year, is expected to have all-core clocks over 5GHz.

    The current models from both companies are already extremely fast, and these improvements should be pretty substantial. AMD could improve by more than 30%, and while Intel will have a smaller single-core speed boost, they will double the number of E cores from 8 to 16 to provide a significant increase in multi-threaded performance.

  • Constant notifications are ruining your produc - hang on, I have to take this - tivity. (ZDNet)

    It's not like I have 164,033 unread emails in my main inbox either.

  • The Lenovo Legion Y700 is now available... In China. (Liliputing)

    $499 for an 8GB/128GB model configured with the English language and the Google Play store. $599 for 12GB/256GB.

    This is a high end small Android tablet, with a pretty recent Snapdragon 870 CPU and an 8.8" 2560x1600 screen. And a headphone jack and a microSD slot.

    It's not cheap but there just plain aren't any real alternatives right now, unless you can find stock of Huawei's MediaPad M6 somewhere

  • One of my nuggies tasted funny at lunch. Not bad, but as if the coating was a different mix. Just waiting to see if I accidentally got glutenated, which I have successfully avoided for more than two years.

Disclaimer: Bacon and eggs are gluten-free. Just sayin'.
