  • $15 well spent I'd say. (Towards AI)

    For $15 the author got, well, see for yourself.

    Most of the $15 was spent figuring out how to ask for what he she wanted, but that's kind of the deal in any artistic endeavour.


Tech News

  • The ThinkPad Carbon X1 Gen 10 is another thin-and-light laptop with the goods. (Thurrott.com)

    12th gen Intel CPU, up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of SSD**, choice of displays up to a 3840x2400 touchscreen, dual Thunderbolt ports, dual USB-A, HDMI, and headphone jack. No microSD slot but at least with USB-A you can plug in a little adaptor.

    Base model is more reasonably priced in Australia than the HP Pavilion Plus - the ThinkPad is currently on sale - but neither the 32GB nor 2TB options are available here.


  • Redis explained. (Architecture Notes)

    Redis is not a database server, it's a data structure server. I wouldn't recommend it for permanent data storage (though you can do that, and I have), but for manipulating data before writing it to your primary database it is unrivalled.


  • The CDC says forget all that stuff we told you about COVID; we give up. (Ars Technica)

    Thanks guys.


  • Intel has dumped an estimated $3.5 billion into its GPU division so far. (Tom's Hardware)

    It's my estimation that it will take the company five years to come up with a truly competitive product, which would likely mean spending another $3.5 billion. Industry analysts are 50/50 on whether the company is willing to commit to that.

    Most of the benefit would be in the datacenter - accelerator cards for things like the dunking llama in the first item sell for far higher prices than desktop graphics cards. Do they need the volume side of the business to keep the effort afloat? I don't know. Should you buy a first-generation Arc graphics card? Absolutely not.

Disclaimer: There's no knives or forks either. Someone's nicked the entire bleedin' cutlery set.
