What Does The Friend Say Edition

Top Story

  • CAMM2 is now an official JEDEC standard.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Originally invented by Dell, this is a replacement for the SODIMM laptop memory modules that have been around for 25 years.

    While not smaller in area - it still needs to accommodate the same memory chips - it is a lot thinner, and one module can fit 128GB of memory on a 128-bit bus.

    It also supports faster LPDDR5 memory - the stuff that is normally soldered directly onto the motherboard - and optionally even GDDR6 graphics memory.

    I really hope this sees market acceptance.


Tech News

  • World of Warcraft is powered by invisible bunnies.  (Kotaku)

    This article from six years ago is almost interesting; it's a peek into an era when game journalism was just lazy, corrupt, and incompetent, before the writers actively hated their own readers.


  • Want a 27" 8k monitor?  TCL will be shipping one next year.  (WCCFTech)

    I'm waiting for 8k prices to crash the way 4k prices did.  I want one - several, really - but they're not justifiable right now.

    There will be a 16k standard after this, but you won't ever need that.  Unless you're particularly fussy about display details - and either have very good eyesight or prescription computer glasses - you don't need 8k either.


  • The first tomato ever grown in space has been found.  (CBS)

    It was at the back of the fridge, on the bottom shelf, behind that jar of plum jam that nobody liked.

1 "lazy, corrupt, and incompetent"
But enough flattery.  How is the writing?

2 CAMM2 can apparently also support dual channels one one module and I really hope the RAM makers do that so crappy OEMs like Dell and HP stop selling machines with a single stick of RAM.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
