- A federal district court in California has ruled that Facebook, Google, TikTok, and Snapchat have to face lawsuits alleging that they are running social networks. (The Verge)

- An in-depth review of the new AMD model of HP's Pavilion Plus 14. (Notebook Check)
I'm typing this on last year's Intel-based Pavilion Plus 14. Great screen, good keyboard, pretty fast CPU (12700H), Intel integrated graphics, and 16GB soldered RAM which is the only major shortcoming.
This new version has a Ryzen 7840U. That offers about the same CPU performance - a bit better on multi-threaded tests - and twice the graphics performance.
At as little as half the power consumption.
And since HP also increased the battery size this year, battery life has jumped from eight hours to sixteen.
All they need to do is offer 32GB of RAM and it would be perfect.

Or is it some kind of alien conspiracy?
