Daily Tech News 21 November 2022

Top Story

  • CBS abandoned Twitter over safety concerns, apparently worried that someone might correct their mistakes.

    They lasted a day.

  • Meanwhile individual journalists are fleeing free speech for the comfort of the distributed platform Mastodon, which is going about as well as you might expect.

    The one thing crazier and more self-absorbed than journalists, it turns out, is people who run Fediverse nodes.

Tech News

  • If computers keep getting faster, why do they sometimes feel like they're getting slower?

    Because they are. (Dan Luu)

    Measuring the time from pressing a key to the matching character appearing on the screen, the fastest system on the list is... The Apple IIe.

  • Proof of Solvency: Using the blockchain to make sure that blockchain exchanges aren't Ponzi schemes. (Vitalik.ca)

    Might not work, but the more friction you throw in the way of fraud, the better.

  • Price cuts expand on the Ryzen 7000 range. (WCCFTech)

    The leaked price of the upcoming 7900 is $429 against $549 MSRP for the faster 7900X, but the 7900X is now selling for $474, so if you want it you might as well buy it now. (The 7900X can be configured to run at 65W just like the 7900 non-X.)

  • You will never fix it later. (Useless Devblog)

    This is not entirely true, though the counterexamples are most often when the thing you promised to fix later suddenly breaks down entirely.

Disclaimer: Those who would give up essential fixes for a little temporary later deserve neither fixes nor later.
