Tech News

  • Intel's spin-transferable torque magnetoresistive random access memory (BOB) is ready for mass production.  (Tom's Hardware)

    This is a non-volatile memory technology with similar performance and rewrite endurance to regular DRAM, but able to retain data for weeks without power.  Device capacities so far have been fairly sad, though, in the low megabits.

  • Hayabusa-2 just touched down on Ryugu, the asteroid it reached in June last year.  (BBC)

    This is the one that previously launched two little hopper robots to explore the asteroid.

  • Israel's first Moon mission is on its way after a successful SpaceX launch.  (Mashable)

    The 600kg automated probe was built entirely with private funds, and will reach the Moon in April.  That's a fairly leisurely pace, but requires a lot less fuel.

    The rocket also launched an Indonesian communications satellite and a satellite-tracking satellite built by the USAF.

    This is the third launch of this particular booster, and it is due to fly again in April.

  • More details on Arm's N1 and E1 cores.  (Serve the Home)

    While Arm is planning for partner devices with up to 128 cores, the current developer board has a rather underwhelming total of two.

1 In other social media news, I had Pleroma installed on my instance. It's pretty kickass in some respect, deficient in other respects. One thing that might be of interest to Pixy is that a large proportion of the traffic is going over ActivityPub already.

2 Ah, cool.  Having a live application to test against will certainly help.

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