- The New York Times has gone insane. (TechCrunch)
- Why I'm done with Chrome.
Not me personally, though I'm rapidly getting there.
- Others are picking this up too.
Chrome now logs you in whether you tell it to or not. (Bleeping Computer)
- Chromium - the open source basis of Crhome - now has a handy de-googling patch
- An analysis of TSMC's 16nm, 10nm, and 7nm processes reveals that those numbers aren't all hot air.
7nm provides more than three times the transistor density of 16nm. It would be roughly five times if the numbers were precise, so taking 16nm as a baseline, 7nm is really closer to 9nm. Still a huge advance.
- The Node.js ecosystem is a fire looking for its dumpster.
Everything about Node.js is awful.
- OVH is expanding its cloud to target the US market. (Serve the Home)
They're already in Australia. However (a) they're completely sold out of all cloud servers and (b) they offer limited storage and no expandability. They're not a replacement for tier-two players like DigitalOcean, let alone the big names like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.
- Singapore has fined Grab-Uber over anti-competitive practices (ZDNet)
Given past stories of Uber's corporate culture, that seems like an unfortunate confluence of names there.

My little girl just said to me: "Mom, how is progress possible if our growth is stunted by perpetual tribalism and xenophobia?â€â€” Allie Beth Stuckey (@conservmillen) June 25, 2018
Wow. Literally at a loss for words. Sheâ€™s a german shepherd. I had no idea this was possible

The New York Times has gone insane.Shortest. Trip. Evah.
I do wonder about the chicken/egg relationship between Chromium and Chrome. I wonder how degoogleficatemitated any Chromium browser can actually be?
Did you receive any E-mails from me concerning spam?

You can mark it as junk in the control panel, that helps a lot.

Alternatively, try Firefox. If you're more concerned for privacy, people recommend Brave, which, IIRC, is a fork of FF.
