Crabs In A Bucket Edition
- The Ryzen 3950X is here and it stomps all over everything. (AnandTech)
Stomp stomp stompity stomp.
- Amazon is suing the Department of Defense over JEDI mind tricks. (Tech Crunch)
Why didn't the Empire think of that?
- Carriers are resistant to replacing SMS with faster better cheaper RCS messaging, because they know which side of their butter is breaded. So Google is saying screw you guys and rolling it out themselves unless they aren't. (WCCFTech)
Google is still run by idiots though.
- PayPal is stopping payments to Pornhub quote-models-unquote. (Vice)
Forget the social networks, regulate the payment processors.
- Why is the migration to Python 3 taking so long? (StackOverflow)
Python 3 was created to make life easier for the developers of Python, not for their users. By Python 3.5, or at least 3.6, it was actually better than Python 2 and migration made sense, but the whole process was unnecessarily painful and stupid.
- Is Docker in trouble?
Sadly it looks like while the company is a financial squeeze, the technology is going to continue to plague us forever, as the package manager of choice for people who don't know what the fuck they are doing. Or don't care. Or both.
- Thicker and heavier is better: The MacBook 16. (MacWorld)
- Being run by idiots is not inherently a Sherman Act violation. (ZDNet)
That would keep the DOJ very busy indeed.
- Andrew Yang wants to tax advertising and create a new federal government department in charge of regulating algorithms. (The Verge)
Serious, this guy is Stalin with Photoshop.
- Uber got hit with a $650 MILLION tax bill in New Jersey. (Bloomberg)
That represents four years of unemployment and disability insurance taxes, plus interest and penalties. New Jersey's position on this contradicts federal law, and I'm not sure which way that goes in this case - whether the 10th Amendment or the absurdly overbroad interpretation of the Commerce Clause comes out on top.
- There's a new social network in town and it only costs $13 a month and oh it's already dead. (The Next Web)
Nobody could have predicted this.
- China's National Space Administration has successfully completed a landing in China. (Reuters)
This precedes a planned landing somewhere else. Probably.
