Mergers And Acquisitions Edition
- AMD is buying Xilinx in an all-stock deal worth $35 billion. (AnandTech)
Once again the rumours were spot on.
I think this is probably a good fit. An AMD APU with integrated FPGA could be a killer app in certain niche markets, and those markets are used to paying a lot for the hardware.
- Zoom is censoring Zoom censorship. (Buzzfeed)
Who do they think they are, Twitter?
- About 3% of Starlink satellites have failed so far. (Phys.org)
Failed dead, that is, not responding to commands and unable to manoeuvre. That's a fairly normal attrition rate for new satellites, and is only a problem due to the pace of the launches. I suspect that the Starlink satellites are planned so they will passively de-orbit in this situation; the article also suspects this but doesn't confirm.
- Who the hell designed that piece of shit?
- There's water on the Moon. (NPR)
So carry your harpoon.
It doesn't change people's minds, unfortunately, but it tells me who I shouldn't trust.
