The Catch Is Out There Edition

Tech News

  • Meanwhile anonymous, who have been quiet lately, claimed to have hacked Nestle and leaked 10GB of proprietary data.

    Nestle denies this happened for a rather unique reason: they accidentally leaked that data themselves months ago.  (Gizmodo)


  • Google still thinks Android tablets are a thing.  (The Verge)

    Guys, you haven't updated the Nexus 7 range since 2013.


  • Nvidia GPU prices are down by about 40% here in Australia, but AMD prices are moving much more slowly...  At least at the mid range.  At the high end, they're also down sharply.  Which has led to an absurd compaction of price brackets:

    Just $40 separates the 6800 from the 6900 XT.


  • Which makes the 6900 XT relatively good value but it's probably not time to buy one.  (Hot Hardware)

    The next generation's mid-range cards, due later this year, could beat current top-of-the-line cards while being much cheaper and more efficient.

  • Hololive Indonesia Gen 3 was announced today, to debut, well, today.  I think they've figured out that if they launch the same day it doesn't give YouTube time to ruin things.

    All of the Hololive Indonesia girls speak fluent English, something I wasn't originally aware of, though now that Hololive English is larger they spend more time speaking Bahasa for their local audience.

    Holostars Gen 4 debuts right after that - Holostars is the male branch of the all-female Hololive.

Local Rabbit Goes House Hunting Video of the Day



The adventure into Darkest Zillow starts around the 24 minute mark.  It was interesting to see the difference in pricing between Australia and the US.  Here, every city of significant size anywhere in the country is expensive.  Also every country town in New South Wales except Broken Hill, which is further from Sydney than is Melbourne and right on the outer edge of civilisation.



Disclaimer: Not saying which side of that edge.

That range compression isn't quite so bad in the US but it's annoying to have bought a 6800 right before the prices came down.
