Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

A piece of professional test equipment that normally costs hundreds of dollars even from a no-name Chinese brand going for $8.70 delivered?  Can't be real, right?  Well, maybe.  Either way, as usual you would have had to click that link yesterday to have a chance of getting one.

Evil Schemes R Us Edition

Tech News

  • A day with the Huawei Mate Pro 30 and it's 7680 fps camera.  (AnandTech)

    Slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowfies.

  • Nothing as a service.

    Turns out that going cheap is horribly expensive.  At even a modest scale Amazon Lambda costs two to eight times as much as EC2, and EC2 is already not cheap.

  • Bedrock is a modular, WAN-replicated, blockchain nope.

    Nope nope nope.

  • You can now pay for public transport in Sydney with your credit card, debit card, or phone.  (ZDNet)

    Just touch it to the green arrow at the gate and off you go.

    I noticed this today - had an office day after hiding at home for an extended period, and both the new Metro line and the new payment system have gone live.  Hope the payment system is more reliable than the Metro, which almost made me late even though I wasn't using it.

  • Speaking of Sydney, we're number six!  (Slashdot)

    On the list of most-surveilled cities outside China.  (China takes eight of the top ten spots worldwide.)

    Though we have less than one fifth the number of cameras per person of London, it's not a number I'm particularly excited about.

    I wonder where they all are.  The Metro line I just mentioned is fully automated and uses a bunch of them, but not enough to account for the total.
