Daily Tech News 24 October 2022

Top Story

  • What's a worse scam than NFTs? NFT books. (lcamtuf's thing)

    One of the top rated NFT books on Amazon was apparently written by an AI. If you thought that AI wasn't sophisticated enough to write a book, you're correct. It isn't. The results are awful and the reviews are fake. The positive reviews, anyway.


  • My new laptop has shipped. Should have it soon. HP keeps stock in Australia, unlike Dell, which ships everything for the region out of Singapore. "Ships next day" says Dell's website. Doesn't say "then takes two weeks to arrive".


Tech News

  • HP's Envy 16 is the big sister of the Pavilion Plus 14 I just bought. (Thurrott.com)

    Same silver colour scheme and same Four Essential Keys. Same i7 CPU, same 1TB SSD, same 16GB of RAM. 16" screen rather than 14", and costs 75% more.

    It does have RTX 3060 graphics and you can upgrade the RAM and install a second SSD - none of which are true for the Pavilion Plus 14 - but it's nearly 50% more expensive than the new model of the Dell Inspiron 16 Plus, and isn't 50% better.


  • How to monitor disk space on ZFS and make sure you don't run out unexpectedly. (Taras Glek)

    Buy more space than you need. ZFs works by magic, and there is no relationship between the size of your files and the amount of disk space they use. We have a server at my day job with 40TB of image files, and they are using less than 3TB of physical storage. But ZFS reports that as 40TB used, plus a magical 37TB of free space that it conjured out of nowhere. I know what's going on, but none of the sysadmins do.


  • Sometimes the itch is worth the risk: Tuna use sharks as back-scratchers. (New Scientist)

    I mean, they don't have Amazon prime. Or hands. Do what you have to.


  • The ASRock X670E Taichi - a Ryzen 7000 motherboard put to the test. (Tom's Hardware)

    It's expensive, but on the other hand, what isn't these days?


  • When "edge computing" means something. (Serve the Home)

    Look at those USB sockets. You could drive over this thing with a truck. While it was running.


Disclaimer: I'll make my own Four Essential Keys. With blackjack, and hookers.
