Daily Tech News 3 January 2023

Top Story

  • News will be kind of quiet for the next couple of days because everything is being saved up for CES starting on the 5th.

  • Samsung does have some new monitors that it wanted to announce before the big rush.

    The Odyssey Neo G9 is a 57" 7680x2160 curved screen. (Tom's Hardware)

    Basically two 32" 4K monitors stuck together, curved, and probably priced through the roof, though they haven't announced that part yet.

    The Odyssey OLED G9 is a 49" 5120x1440 model, again a curved screen. With that ultrawide view and OLED's colour and contrast it could be a gamer's dream, so long as said gamer is made of money.

    Finally the Viewfinity S9 is a conventional 5K display. (The Verge)

    I welcome this because - at least when I'm wearing my computer glasses - 5K is noticeably sharper than 4K.

    This model will presumably accommodate PCs and not just Macs; the listed inputs include not just Thunderbolt but regular USB-C, DisplayPort, and HDMI.

    Pricing for all three is unannounced but none of these will be cheap.

  • Reached the new stuff in Natsuki Subaru Dies a Lot. I read some of the manga following on from the first season, and it takes a completely different route. Unless I've forgotten a lot (not impossible) what the anime explains immediately wasn't explained in the manga as far as I read.

  • Should you buy a Kingston NV2 SSD? Probably not. (Tom's Hardware)

    On the one hand it's cheap. On the other hand it's the slowest model tested in this review and uses the most power.

    On the third hand, being the slowest model tested means it can't quite hit 3 gigabytes per second, which is very, very fast.

    On the fourth hand, one of the reasons this model is cheap is that it isn't a model. It's just a label Kingston puts on whatever assembly of parts is currently cheapest and matches the basic specs. So you don't know what you will get - you could buy one and get a good controller and TLC flash, and be basically happy, then buy another and get a slower controller and QLC flash and run into strange problems.

    That's the real reason not to buy it.

  • The strangest computer manual ever written. (Ironic Sans)

    I don't know if I'd agree with that title but it's a good look at the manual for the Franklin Ace, the first Apple II clone before copyright of software was settled by the courts and such things because more fraught.

    There's also a link to a long comment on an earlier post from the guy in charge of documentation at Franklin back in the early 80s.

  • The sooner we replace these nematodes with ChatGPT the better. (ZDNet)


All the Animals And Most of the Plants Video of the Day

The first minute of this is an ad for male pattern baldness treatments. Sorry about that.

The rest of the video is an ad for why women live longer than men.
It says here that water makes it worse.
Oh, I want to try. OW! OW!
It makes it worse! It makes it worse!

Disclaimer: Or maybe it just seems that way because they don't get to experience the joy and excitement of juggling rabid wolverines naked in -40 temperatures while painted with bat urine.
