Daily Tech News 7 May 2022

Top Story

  • Xbox is was down. (Bleeping Computer)

    It looks like it came back online just minutes ago, after about 11 hours during which you couldn't play games you owned on the console you owned because the truth is, you don't.



Tech News

  • QNAP. (Bleeping Computer)

    Again. Though this one seems specific to its security video systems and not to its generic NAS devices.


  • I have 100,000 unread emails. What do? (ZDNet)

    The answer is "declare email bankruptcy" and archive all of them.


  • Conjunction disfunction: These five magic words crash Google Docs. (Bleeping Computer)

    The five words were And. Type that five times in a row - And. And. And. And. And. And. - with grammar suggestions turned on, and and and and and splat.

    Sadly it seems to have been fixed now.


  • Apple's M1 and A14 CPUs have a speculative prefetch bug similar to Spectre and Meltdown. (Tom's Hardware)

    In theory this could allow Javascript running in a hostile web page to read the entire memory contents of your Mac - and possibly your iPhone too.


  • You wouldn't buy a book, would you? (Ars Technica)

    Well, now you can't. The Kindle app for Android currently allows you to purchase Kindle books right in the app with a single click - great if you're reading through a series, because it shows up when you get to the last page.

    That's going away because Google wants a cut. Instead you'll have to open Amazon in your browser.


  • Amazon is planning to spend $12 billion on five new datacenters in Oregon. (The Register)

    This is expected to create 600 local jobs - which is not a lot. Most of the complicated stuff is done remotely; the local staff are responsible for putting things in racks and then taking them out again a few years later.


  • Intel will be bringing back high-end desktop systems with Sapphire Rapids. (WCCFTech)

    Based on the current Alder Lake cores, but with more of them - up to 24 on the mainstream range, and up to 56 cores per socket - and two sockets - on the expert range. Clock speeds up to 5GHz, DDR5 RAM, PCIe 5 I/O, and TDPs up to 500W.

    Time to get that 2000W power supply.

    Expected in Q3 this year, which is not that far off.
