Global Thermonuclear War Edition
- Toshiba has provided a list of their SMR drive models. (Tom's Hardware)
There's no real problem using SMR drives for backups, for example, but put one in a RAID array of conventional drives and you're begging for disaster.
- Is your computer insufficiently irritating? (Tom's Hardware)
The entire front panel of the InWin GLOW2 is an RGB LED array because of course it is.
- China has chosen not to block embarrassing material posted to GitHub. (TechDirt)
They're just arresting the people who post it.
The Atlantic will be along in a minute to explain why this is a good thing.
- Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. (Six Colors)
The Atlantic will be along in a minute to explain why privacy is a bad thing.
- Sheffield City Council is tracking your travels. (The Register)
And then putting all the data on the internet without requiring a login, let alone a password.
The Atlantic will be along in a minute to explain why everyone should be able to track you, and not just the government.
- Arm turns 35 today. (The Register)
- Google just knifed Shoelace. (Tech Crunch)
Extra Ordinary hardest hit.

- Big Navi is almost exactly twice the size of the 5700XT unless it isn't. (WCCFTech)

- Reddit takes 8 seconds to load even with a 100Mb internet connection.
Also, Google's PageSpeed tool fails to load Reddit about 90% of the time.
This site takes a mere.... Oh. It takes as little as 11 milliseconds to spit out the HTML if it hits the cache, but with all those embedded videos and tweets it can take 30 seconds to finish rendering.
"most people wouldn’t opt out either. And if they do, there are plenty of things we could do to push them to opt-in again, such as asking for a new confirmation every few hours, or asking them to navigate to settings every few hours to confirm the opt-out." You can fuck right off. "We have lost our freedom. If we can get them back with a little bit of privacy, are we not going to consider it? " No, because once you let Big Brother start tracking you, he's not going to stop. The guy who you quoted had a contemporary who said "f ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"
