Haachama Monday Edition

Top Story

  • AMD's server market share grew in Q1 at the fastest pace in 15 years.  (Tom's Hardware)

    AMD's overall CPU market share for the quarter declined slightly, because while they sold every chip they could make, they couldn't make enough.

    Intel meanwhile has its own fabs.  They might be stuck a generation behind, for the most part, but they don't have to fight Apple for access to production capacity.

    Meanwhile I just checked online stock at two Australian PC stores and both had the full Ryzen 5000 range listed.  The higher end models (12 and 16 cores) are limited to one per customer, but they are at least available.


The opening credits for season three of Haachama Channel.  If you know who Haachama is, you might argue that this isn't anime.  To which I say: Look, in the latest episode she ate worm sushi, died, and was reborn via a computer glitch in the same body but with entirely different memories.

If that's not anime, nothing is.

1 I was a little surprised to see the local Microcenter had 25+ each Ryzen 5950s and 5900s listed in stock.  They've had 5600 and 5800s for a month or two now.
Video cards are getting so bad--the 1030s disappeared ages ago and they're down to the dregs:  GT 710s are starting to run out.

2 In Apple's defense, they're just leveraging their massive, creepy surveillance system to do something customers actually want.  But more to the point here is that literally anyone with enough access to the names of bluetooth devices, wifi networks, etc etc could do the same.  It's just leveraging all those names and locations.  And you don't need to be anywhere near as big as Apple.  You have billons of devices with globally unique IDs using GPS to locate themselves and blithely spewing bluetooth and wifi info to any device that comes near them.  You would only need the actual information gathering on a small percentage of those devices to track practically everything else.

I mean, I've been saying for years that Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, and probably nearly every state actor already does.

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