Daily Tech News 24 July 2023

Top Story

  • Telescreens: Not just behind the painting anymore. (Forbes)

    What do you get when you deploy vast networks of traffic cameras and feed them all into AI systems to track, well, everything?

    One arrest and the eradication of privacy and Fourth Amendment rights.

    Welcome to the goldfish bowl.

Tech News

  • Solar panels built over irrigation canals could, like, do things. (AP)

    They would reduce evaporation and generate electricity, so it's a twofer. But the correction at the end of the article is a doozy:
    This story was first published on July 20, 2023 and was updated on July 21, 2023 to correct the erroneous statement that panels over California's canals could provide 13 gigawatts of power, enough to supply the city of Los Angeles from January through October. The proper term of measurement would have been gigawatt-hours rather than gigawatts, but additionally, researchers now say the total amount of energy that would be generated has not yet been scientifically estimated.
    So if the corrected number is correct, it could power the city of Los Angeles for an hour each year.

  • If you don't sign in to your Ubisoft account regularly, they will protect your privacy by deleting your account, and also your games. (PC Gamer)

    Trying to win that coveted Worst Company in the World title away from EA?

  • Testing seven M.2 2230 SSDs. (Tom's Hardware)

    I have two laptops with 2230-size slots (in addition to 2280 slots). Recent Microsoft Surface tablets have 2230 storage, and so do some portable devices like the Steam Deck.

    This review doesn't run the full suite of tests you usually see; just game loading times and basic read benchmarks, but all of the drives manage rates over 1.5GB per second, which is a lot for something the size of a postage stamp.

  • AMD's Ryzen 7500F is a new 6 core model without integrated graphics. (Tom's Hardware)

    At $179 vs. $229 for the 7600 with integrated graphics, and 5.0GHz vs. 5.1GHz, it makes sense for a budget gaming build where you wouldn't use the integrated graphics anyway.

    Rumours are that Intel's upcoming 14100 could also be a six-core part (the 13100 has four cores) so that might be an even better budget part, but likely won't show up until January.

Containment Breach Video of the Day

"What about Second Kronii?"
"I don't think he knows about Second Kronii, Pippa."

The highly anticipated announcement of Hololive English Generation 3 has just been, uh, announced. Launch video Wednesday, debuts probably a couple of days later.

With Hololive Council - Generation 2 - they left a longer gap between the launch and the debuts, and YouTube and Twitter took the opportunity to suspend all their accounts, some multiple times. Hololive hasn't made that mistake again.

And yes, Amelia was just on holiday.

Disclaimer: Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is Amelia Watson.
