Daily News Stuff 25 April 2022

Top Story

  • Well, that's one solution: If your politics require you to maintain lockdowns but your economic survival requires getting as many people as possible back to work just lock workers in the factories. (Ars Technica)

    Even the Ars Technica commentariat aren't on board with this one. A few try half-heartedly to blame it on capitalism, but they're getting downvoted to oblivion. There are mentions of Mao's war on sparrows, and those are getting upvoted.

Tech News

  • Ryzen 7000 is probably going to be DDR5 only. (Tom's Hardware)

    Ryzen 6000 - the new laptop chips that just came out - is already DDR5-only (or LPDDR5). It truly needs that bandwidth to enable its fast integrated graphics, where a pure CPU doesn't really, not unless AMD goes beyond 16 cores with these new chips.

    Intel's Alder Lake still supports DDR4 as well as DDR5 - depending on the motherboard - so AMD is betting that DDR5 prices will come down over the course of the year.

  • Twitter's board of directors finds itself unexpectedly at the bottom of a hole it just dug. (Ars Technica)

    Nobody else is interested in Twitter at the moment because the first thing any buyer would need to do is fire the board and senior management, so if they succeed in fending off Elon Musk's takeover bid for their propaganda platform the stock price is almost certain to collapse.

    Netflix and Disney actually have content people want and are willing to pay for, even if their new content is crap, and their respective share prices are in the toilet. Nobody needs what was on Twitter yesterday; the value of the company is entirely on what people expect in its future.

    If the board succeeds in resetting that expectation to all Maxism all the time, as they seem to want, they could also reset the share price to zero.

Just Move Disney to Seattle Video of the Day

People, by which I mean Twitter users, are seriously arguing that Disney could move from Florida to New York City. Not just upstate New York where there is at least room, but putting the whole thing in Manhattan, when the Florida park is twice the size of Manhattan Island.
