Daily Tech News 13 May 2021

Top Story

  • It's the Night of the Blunt Knives at Twitter. (The Verge)

    CEO Parag Agrawal is clearing the decks of the most competent senior executives ahead of Elon Musk's takeover so that... I got nothing.

    The tweets are weird. "You're great. The best in your field. A perfect fit for the role. Also, fired."

Tech News

  • The EU wants to do a thing. (Some Stupid EU Site)

    If you can read the article and tell me what they want to do, you win a kewpie doll.
    • Strengthen the support offered to children in vulnerable situations by the Safer Internet Centres in Member States to address the digital divide.

    • Expand the role of BIK Youth Ambassadors and BIK Youth Panels - young people working with the Commission to implement the strategy - to support peer-to-peer activities at national and local level.

    • Start mapping the existing research on the neurologic impact on children of methods used for commercial purposes.

  • Horrifying things, kewpie dolls.

  • Google announced stuff? (ZDNet)

    Anything good?

    No. Well, they seem to have fixed some things they recently broke in YouTube, but no.

  • An engineering sample for what is probably AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7800X runs at up to 5.2GHz. (Tom's Hardware)

    That's about 10% faster than the current 5800X, and Zen 4 is expected to be 25% faster than Zen 3 at the same speed. And right now I'm on a Zen 1 that is underclocked because it overheats, so this new chip would be quite a bit faster.

  • If you're looking to build a Threadripper workstation, there aren't any. (Tom's Hardware)

    AMD can sell everything it makes into the server market at higher margins, so it's not really looking for extra niches where it can sell a few thousand - or tens of thousands - of chips. So it's a good thing that the 16 core Ryzen 7000 will likely be as fast as most Threadripper 3000 chips.

  • BBC Basic for SDL is BBC Basic only for SDL (a cross-platform graphics and sound library. (BBCBasic)

    It runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Raspberry Pi, and in your browser, and gives you up to 256MB for your Basic code which is just slightly more than was available on the BBC Micro.

  • If you're not an Ubuntu fan, Fedora 36 is now out. (The Register)

    I got started on Red Hat Linux and used it for years, all the way through to CentOS 6, before giving up because of the eternities it took to release CentOS 7 and 8.

  • Getting utilities connected at my new house before I move in and learned something that I hadn't thought of. It has a gas cooktop and gas hot water.

    It doesn't have gas.

    Specifically, the town doesn't have gas. Have to get it delivered in bottles.

    Universal fibre internet, yes. Gas, no. Guess I'll take that trade.
