Yet Another Edition
- Yarn stands for yet another fucking package manager.
Trust me on this.
- Huawei has received a quiche waiver. (AnandTech)
For 90 days, but renewable.
- Motorola's One Vision is another reasonably-price mid-range phone. (AnandTech)
It uses a Samsung SoC rather than Qualcomm, with 4 x A73 and 4 x A53 cores, so a little worse single threaded and a little better multi-threaded than yesterday's Realme Pro 3.
6.3" 2520x1080 display, hole-punch camera at the top left, 4GB + 128GB, 3500mAh battery, USB-C and headphone jack, 1 SIM and one SIM/microSD combo.
Standout features here are the cameras: 48MP rear and 25MP front.
€299, no US launch planned for this exact model (presumably because the Samsung modem doesn't cover all the necessary frequency ranges) but will be sold in Australia.
- Intuit sucks and double sucks. (Tech Dirt)
- Tom asks: It's 2019. Where the fuck is our global peer-to-peer electronic cash system? (Hackernoon)
After accurately summing up the existing environment as completely broken, the article turns into an ad for a BRAND NEW BLOCKCHAIN that will SOLVE ALL THE PROBLEMS.
Sure, Tom. Sure.
- Use Selenium to delete your Facebook posts.
Because using plutonium is illegal.
- Nvidia did not have a good Q1. (PDF)
Compared to Q1 2019 (what the heck is their financial year, anyway?) margins are down 6 percentage points, expenses are up 21%, and revenue is down 31%. They are still making a respectable profit though.
- No, decimated means reduced by one tenth. You mean devastated. (The Verge)
- No. (ZDNet)
- Elasticsearch 6.8 and 7.1 have authentication. (ZDNet)
Until now, this has been a paid feature for enterprise customers, meaning that the vast majority of Elasticsearch servers had no protection except their firewall. Naturally they got routinely hacked.
- Google Glass 2 is here. (Thurrott.com)
Pocket protector, slide rule, mechanical pencil, and skinny tie available as optional extras.
- Turn your web browser into a web server.
Sure. I mean, why not? What's the worst that could happen?

They still haven't worked the bugs out of the 1903 version of their computer language?
Who's even using Babbage engines and punch cards anymore?

But it should mean "in sync" and not "unaffected ".
