Tech News

  • Huawei's MateBook X Pro is a great example of a notebook with leading-edge specs but no PgUp/PgDn/Home/End keys, so fuck it.

  • ASMedia has you covered if you need 6.5GB per second of I/O.  Wait, that's kind of on the slow side isn't it?  Oh, it only has 8GB per second on the upstream port, never mind.

  • Tech employees are revolting.  No, TechDirt, these people are not indispensable.  No more than the air traffic controllers were.

  • Intel's Core i9 9900k is coming soon to compete with AMD's 8-core Ryzen chips...  Which have been out for more than a year.

  • Python 3.7 is out, bringing with it....  Records.  Catching up with Algol 68.  Good work!

1 Given how many H1B, and other, visas are used to fill tech positions at large tech companies these days, I'm really left wondering how many of those complaining are actually US citizens and how many are here on temporary visas and therefore citizens of other countries.

2 I suspect the H1B crew keep their heads down.  This is probably locals.

3 If they are locals, maybe it is high time to introduce retroactive Selective Service.  I say a year stuck on the Syrian side of the border at the Golan should give them a new perspective on life.

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