  • Intel's high-end 11th generation Tiger Lake laptop parts are here - and they appear to actually be good.  (AnandTech)

    AMD had a decisive edge in the laptop market with their eight-core processors, where Intel only went up to four cores with their newest chips.  This fixes that, while retaining the new Ice Lake core and 10nm process.  Tiger Lake on the desktop also goes up to eight cores but has been back-ported to the older 14nm process and as a result uses up to 300W at full load.

    No benchmarks just yet, so take any performance claims with a pound of salt, but current Ice Lake laptop parts do perform very well on single-core workloads.



Today we go back to...  I don't know exactly.  The original Cutie Honey aired in 1973 while the latest version, Cutie Honey Universe, came out in 2018.  Cutie Honey creator Go Nagai has been writing manga longer than I've been alive.

This one in particular is from the 1995 second part of the New Cutie Honey OVA series.

Unexpectedly Apropos Hololive Music Video of the Day


Best doggo Korone has 1.5 million subscribers for a reason.  She consistently shows impeccable taste in anime and video games that came out before she was born.  Oh, and music too - in one of her Doom streams (so popular that the developers added an easter egg that changed the title to Doog) she started singing Lollipop by the Chordettes.


RGB Considered Harmful Video of the Day


Fake software for controlling your fancy new blinkenlights instead stole your crypto wallet.  Sympathy. 

Just...  Not very much.

This syncs up the songs from Cutie Honey (1973), New Cutie Honey (1994), Cutie Honey Flash (1997), and Re: Cutie Honey (2004).  The latest series, Cutie Honey Universe (2018) has an entirely different song.

I'd seen this before but the copy I had bookmarked has since been deleted; this is a fresh upload.

1 Rebooting every 51 days to avoid Very Bad Things from happening actually does not sound nearly as bad as what happened with the original Patriot system, where a failure to reboot at shorter intervals could (And did.) lead to Very Bad Things happening.

2 True, but I'm sure most of us that aren't Boeing employees can agree it's not as good as not having a bug that requires you to power cycle your airplane every 51 days.

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