Watch Me Pull A Cabbit Out Of My Hat Edition
- A non-Apple hardware site reviews Apple's Mac Studio. (Hot Hardware)
They do like it, but if you go to page two you can see a PC configured at the same $2000 price point simply wipe the floor with the Mac. Yes, the Mac Studio is small and elegant and quiet and sips power, but it's fast only in two specific cases: When compared with out-of-date Apple hardware, and when tested on Apple proprietary video codecs.
- The World Health Organization plans to declare a global Gambian Pouch Rat Pox emergency. (Ars Technica)
The virus formerly known as monkeypox, but it's actually more common in rodents and the name has been deemed discrimatory.
- Chevy is auctioning off an NFT of a lime green Corvette. (The Verge)
The one small difference here is that you get the car.
Yes, the actual vroom vroom physical car.
This is slightly less stupid than normal.

*snort* no, not really. "Here, we propose a novel classification of MPXV that is non-discriminatory and non-stigmatizing and aligned with best practices in naming of infectious diseases  in a way that minimizes unnecessary negative impacts on nations, geographic regions, economies and people and that considers the evolution and spread of the virus."
To be fair, a disease that's mostly spread through rodents doesn't make as much sense to be called monkeypox, but as J. said on his blog, these people, if reading 1984, probably "nodded along approvingly at the description of Winston's job, and were disappointed when he started to rebel."
