You Should Have Specified "Median" Edition
- Intel's next-generation high-end desktop CPUs will launch next month. (AnandTech)
Cascade Lake-X will offer up to 109% better performance per dollar than Skylake-X, says Intel.
So, basically, a price cut.
- The US Copyright Office's handling of the designated DMCA agent database works about as well as you might expect which is to say not at all. (TechDirt)
To be officially protected by the DMCA you must register a designated agent to receive complaints. In 2016 the Copyright Office simply deleted all the registrations, just because, so even if you did register, you'd better go take a look again.
- So not time-travelling big game hunters firing a .700 Nitro Express then. (Science Daily)
- YouTube has done what they do best: Banned another 17,000 channels and disabled comments on all kids videos. (One Angry Gamer)
This is further fallout of the FTC investigation over targeted advertising on children's videos. Google could have just not shown targeted advertising, but no, they had to screw everything up.
- Samsung's Galaxy Fold is back. (ZDNet)
It will go on sale in South Korea tomorrow, to be followed by Europe, Samsung having correctly judged that American tech journalists are dangerous idiots who can't be trusted with a kitchen sponge.
Video of the Day
Teenage girls: Dual-wield lightsabers, take out 360 opponents without a single miss, while dancing to K-pop.
I work for a company that makes HR & payroll software. One thing we have to do generate the 1094C and 1095C forms the government requires as part of 0bamacare--that is, the notification to each employee (and to the government) of insurance coverage each year.
You think the process of renewing he describes is bad, you should see what's involved in the registration for a company to file the forms electronically, or how long the process takes (a month) or what the login process is like. It's a ridiculous grab-bag of every security measure anyone ever thought of: you have to pick an icon-sized picture from a small list, that gets shown when you log in, and if they show you the wrong picture, you shouldn't log in? I'm not really sure what's the deal with that. Oh, and you have to give them a cell phone # so they can send you a PIN when you log in. So it has to be a cell, not a land line, and also the phone must be in your name (so one of my coworkers couldn't register at all because he has a family plan and it's in his wife's name.) I could go on but you'd fall asleep.

After watching the whole thing, I found Believer (the first one in this video) done with a Darth Maul saber for comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx9q014KEcw
