  • Samsung has announced that LPCAMM memory modules for laptops will be arriving next year.  (Tom's Hardware)

    These replace the existing SODIMMs - or more often, replace memory soldered directly to the motherboard.  The modules are 128 bits wide so you only need one of them - and they're about the same size as a single SODIMM - and are designed to use low power, high speed LPDDR5X chips.

    They will be available in capacities from 32GB to 128GB, which means that finally we won't be stuck with laptops that have everything you need except they ship with 8GB of RAM and it's solder in place.

    I expect to see these modules soldered in place, because laptop manufactures seem to be driven as much by malice as anything else.

1 "The Action Button is perhaps the biggest hardware upgrade the iPhone line has received in years. It's not a particularly advanced piece of technology - it's literally just a button"


"Whatever would we do without our news media?"


All I ask is the opportunity to find out.

2 Been switching back to FF for a week or so, and I was reminded of the particularly goofy way the editor interacts with same--paste text, the whole window scrolls to the top.
However!  I did find one way it's better than Chrome-based browsers!  When I paste text from The Verge (of Stupidty) and akismet barfs because of high-Unicode em dashes or "smart" quotes and then hit Back, Firefox will preserve the text in the text box, instead of blanking it out like Chrom* does!

(Apologies if this multi-posts, it keeps showing as accepted, then when I refresh the main page there's only one comment.)

5 I actually tried to read that verge article.  It really has everything!  If only Jobs was still alive to accept the fellatio offered.

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