When Life Gives You Lemonade Edition
- Google and Australia are continuing their slap fight. (ZDNet)
Australia's Dinosaur Media Protection Act is stupid and counterproductive but so is Google.
- Microsoft unsurprisingly is enjoying every minute of this. (ZDNet)
Particularly Google's threat to withdraw their search platform from Australia if their demands are not met.
- AMD shipped nearly one million Ryzen 5000 CPUs in Q4 2020. (WCCFTech)
So they are shipping in volume, they're just being bought in even more volume. In Australia there's currently a three-month backlog of orders for the 5900X, though the 5800X is in stock.
- Meanwhile Sony shipped 4.5 million PlayStation 5s in their Q4. (Thurrott.com)
All the Ryzen 5000s, all the PS5 and Xbox Series X and S chips, and all the Radeon 6000 GPU chips are coming off TSMC's 7nm production line and there just doesn't seem to be enough of it.
- Mass Effect is getting a texture and resolution upgrade. (WCCFTech)
The textures particularly for the first game are not great; they look kind of bad at 720p and much worse at anything above that.
The new Mass Effect Legendary bundle will include HD remasters of all three games and 40 DLC packs (they lost the source code for one of them), and will arive May 14 on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

Makes you wonder why they decided to cave to France.

Now if they had plenty of time and a couple of programmers who are very familiar with C or C++ or whatever the game was written in they could more or less reverse-engineer the code from the executables (with obvious exceptions for things like obfuscators, code optimizations by the compiler, etc). It's actually pretty easy to reverse-engineer non-obfuscated Java code, although you lose stuff like variable names, of course.

Though one of the more curious things I have heard about trying to recover source codes was about Panzer Dragoon Saga, where someone had allegedly gotten the rights to re-release it from Sega (Despite the source code was said to be lost.) and was apparently trying to re-engineer the game. I never heard anything beyond that, so that might have been entirely fictitious.
I have been watching some of the Hololive-EN streams, and was surprised when Amelia Watson had one of the Hololive streamers from Indonesia on for a collaboration...And who spoke very good English.
Also, if Edge had the same interface for favorites that Firefox has, it would be perfect.

Nijisanji - the other big Japanese vtuber company - just launched an ID branch as well and they have 16 channels already, though none as big as the HoloID girls yet. I just tuned into one channel and she's doing a lesson on colloquial Bahasa Indonesia.
