Daily Tech News 31 October 2022

Top Story

  • Elon Musk reportedly terminated Twitter's top executives for cause, meaning they don't get their multi-million dollar payouts. (Yahoo News)

    Ignore the "media activist" - that is, communist censorship maximalist fuckhead - in the video at the top. Has nothing at all to do with the story, it's just the usual 1984 is a cookbook crap.

    The story is that if terminated for cause - fired for significant malfeasance, like using the company as a political toy and losing hundreds of millions of dollars in the process - they don't get their sweet golden parachutes, which would otherwise have totaled over $100 million.

    On the other hand, the story also claims that Musk plans mass layoffs before 1 November to avoid share vestments which obviously ain't gonna happen. As I said before, they literally know nothing.

  • Yeah, Halloween is not a thing in New House City, or at least, not here at the end of a one-way street on a hill overlooking New House City. Richer pickings elsewhere would be the safe bet. Well, you'd be wrong, and now I have three dozen Freddos all to myself.

Tech News

  • Speaking of the world's richest man, the mainstream media is shocked, shocked, that he would circulate the baseless slur that the guy dressed only in his underpants in the Pelosi household was obviously Paul Pelosi's gay lover. (Indy 100)

    I mean, who doesn't do a little half-naked hammering in the middle of the night?

    Don't answer that.

    There are also serious questions about the alleged blog of alleged MC David DePape, which was remarkably well-formatted for someone who thinks he talks to fairies and conveniently hit every single Democrat talking point about the imaginary scourge of far-right political violence.

    The story stinks like last week's fish. In August. In Alabama.

  • Also, that 75% layoffs number? Could be on the low side:

  • Some people are questioning the narrative. (Pro Publica)
    Last August, the Greek edition of the Epoch Times, a far-right U.S. publication connected to the Falun Gong spiritual movement, published an article that falsely claimed the sun, and not increased levels of carbon dioxide, could be responsible for global warming. That story had multiple Google ads when ProPublica viewed it, even though it appears to clearly violate Google's policy against climate disinformation.
    First, it's the Sun, capitalised. It's a proper noun.

    Second, you people need psychiatric help.

  • Intel's 14th generation Meteor Lake chips could actually have fewer cores than 13th gen - and fewer performance cores than, well, anything since the 8th gen Coffee Lake parts from five years ago. (WCCFTech)

    Which does not bode well for Intel at the high end, but Intel's current high-end parts don't bode well for Intel at the high end. The pick of the litter is the (current) entry level 13600K, which is a good all-rounder and well priced if you don't mind the vagaries of the two different core designs.

  • Twitter is completely changing its verification process. (WCCFTech)

    Nominally it's supposed to confirm that an account is run by who it says it is. In reality, it's mostly a participation trophy for left-wing drones.

    Elon Musk wants to verify anyone with money and ID, which has the left-wing drones up in arms.

Disclaimer: How does a left-wing drone even fly? You'd think they'd just flop around aimlessly on the ground, like, well, a left-wing drone.
