  2. Motorola Under Fire For Copying iPhone X

    Just glancing, the design and location of the camera, the location of the company logo on the back, the design of the background of the lock screen, the bezel configuration... yea the notch is the prominent feature but that's not a great thing to pick out as similar (good job, article author). About the only thing I could say different is the P30 says "Motorola" on the phone's chin. I really don't think this will stand up in a patent suit, and Apple would be foolish to not pursue one.

    Because copying the iPhone almost verbatim worked so well for Samsung. Oh wait. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Inc._v._Samsung_Electronics_Co.#Second_Retrial_of_damages_amount_from_first_U.S._trial
  4. Intel falls further behind as ~0nm transistors created

    There's nothing to tunnel through in their test setup. A general purpose CPU contains, what, several million transistors? There's physical barriers there between the electrical pathways to prevent interference, and make the CPU work. That's what will suffer from tunneling, signals causing interference (via tunneling) in adjacent pathways. Once the barrier is sufficiently thick, tunneling is unnoticeable or nonexistent.
  5. Intel falls further behind as ~0nm transistors created

    Oh for sure. At some point you'd also have to take into account quantum tunneling, which could definitely result in bad things when you get into packing these together in molecular-level structures. There's no way this will be applied to consumer electronics well before a "zero" nm process; we're gonna hit a wall soon where tunneling will be a problem.
  6. Fortnite for Android to skip Google Play store

    Considering we're talking about Fortnite, I think you're putting too much trust in kids. Anything this popular is going to have a TON of focus for hackers and the like. Pulling it off the play store just makes it easier for people to inject whatever they want into the APK. Unless Epic is doing their own integrity checks on the APK, there's nothing to stop someone from throwing a cryptominer or personal/payment info skimmer into the app. I would HOPE Epic is smart enough to have thought about that.
  7. A hash stored on my machine is far less concerning than a plaintext username/password, mainly because it's hashed. Plaintext anything is a bad idea, period. And now that this vulnerability is known...
  8. I've never heard of something so stupid in my entire life. Let's not have the VPN application accept a hashed password as an argument, no no no, let's WRITE THE USERNAME AND PASSWORD TO A CLEARTEXT FILE, AND HAVE THE VPN APPLICATION READ AND DELETE THE FILE TO LOGIN. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG? This throws any credibility they had under the bus for me. What the actual hell are you doing PIA. I've heard of and experienced odd messaging interfaces before, but that's just...no.
  9. Windows 10 Pro as a Server, do i need CAL's

    Because it doesn't really matter if you do it at home. There's no audits going on there. I host stuff off my machine all the time. They want that sweet $$$$$$ from businesses though. I'm sure enterprise and volume licensing is the bulk of Microsoft's profits.
  10. Windows 10 Pro as a Server, do i need CAL's

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Useterms/Retail/Windows/10/UseTerms_Retail_Windows_10_English.htm Oh lol looks like I'm wrong. If you want to host a server you have to use Windows Server. Windows 10 doesn't let you host servers. Not that that REALLY matters, though. If you're worried about audits you should pretty much just use Linux, or buy tens of thousands of dollars worth of CALs + Windows Server licensing.
  11. Windows 10 Pro as a Server, do i need CAL's

    CALs are only for the windows server SKUs and common server software like SQL Server, SharePoint, and Exchange. If you're running a Windows 10 Pro box as a server and not using a software that requires CALs, then you don't need CALs.
  12. Remember in the other thread I said the EU copyright crap wasn't dead? This will be how they disguise it to ram it through.
  13. Yea I know but most of the time I need to be in ubuntu anyway lol
  14. If supporting emoji in the console means I can use the SSH client from the WSL Ubuntu instance WITHOUT having boxes all over my weechat instance, I'm all for it.
  15. Google makes YouTube much slower for Firefox and Edge

    This is the point you're missing: Netflix is not owned by Microsoft. Edge is not developed by Netflix. The Netflix website and UWP Netflix App are not developed by Microsoft. Netflix made the decision to use PlayReady 3.0. PlayReady is only supported by Edge and the UWP framework (along with streaming platforms like the fire stick, chromecast, roku, etc). Firefox and Chrome don't support PlayReady, presumably because they did not want to pay Microsoft a fee for the libraries, so they instead support Widevine DRM. If Microsoft owned Netflix it'd be a different story. But that's not the case. In this case, YouTube is owned by Google. Chrome is developed by Google. YouTube is developed by Google. This should be an obvious difference.
