This Is Not The Fascism I Requested Edition
Not Exactly Tech News
- DDR5 is on its way. (AnandTech)
I was expecting it to appear this year - in something, if not in mainstream products - but it looks like it will be 2021.
- New benchmark leaks show that the 35W 4900HS is 30% faster than the 15W 4800U. (Tom's Hardware)
That's impressive performance from the low-power part. Time for a 16 core 30W laptop CPU maybe?
- The whole of TechDirt has been delisted by Google under the EU's abominable "right to be forgotten" law. (TechDirt)
This only applies within Europe, at least for now.
- Yelp recently unveiled an initiative for businesses to easily join in fundraising efforts to help fight Corona-chan. (The Verge)
Only they didn't bother to inform those businesses that they were being signed up to promote the fundraising efforts. They just sort of went ahead and did it.
- Frederik Pohl, call your agent: SpaceX awarded contract to supply cargo to the Gateway space station. (Space.com)
With no helpful Heechee around, we're going to have to build this one ourselves. Gateway won't orbit the Earth, but the Moon.
- In the other direction, you can now book a holiday trip to the bottom of the Challenger Deep. (Bloomberg)
$750,000 per person, but there are currently no reported cases of Wuhan Bat Soup Death Plague in the Marianas Trench.
Race to sleep is great for bursty workloads, not so much for sustained ones. I wanna see a laptop built like a gaming laptop, with a beefy cooling system and a great APU, but without a gaming GPU.

We will politely ignore the fact that Gateway is not likely to ever orbit anything.
