    Why did you buy an iPhone?

    So my iPhone Xs video ended up being a rant about the things that bug me about the iPhone experience. It wasn't intentional, but that's what it was. I was kind of thinking a nice accompanying piece would be 10 GREAT Reasons you Should Buy an iPhone. I'll start with a couple: - Apple legitimately takes end-user security seriously. They don't have a perfect track record here, but they can also be credited with creating pressure on other industry players to move in this direction. - Device support - Batterygate notwithstanding, Apple's track record for phone support is untouchable. Show me one company that provides phone OS updates more consistently and for longer than apple. *** I don't really want to hear from the Android owners here. I want to hear from current iPhone users - For bonus points, please list what iPhone you're currently using and why you are using that particular one ***

    Nvidia slowing down performance with new drivers

    Every time we have looked into this it's been false... These claims come around EVERY time there is a new launch...
  3. The really mind-blowing thing to me is that this ever made it as far as it did. Everyone I know at Intel is extremely cautious about mentioning competitors, let alone comparing to them... And these results are so obviously incorrect that it's baffling that no one saw them at nay point and went "whoa whoa whoa!" I dunno. Meanwhile at LTT we are already testing the 9900k so stay tuned for becmhmarks you can trust courtesy of Anthony
  4. DID YOU READ MY COMMENT ON YOUTUBE??? LOL I like you. You sound like you have actual experience navigating the corporate world. It's amazing how much analysis of these kinds of things gets done by people who have NO idea how things work at a large organization like Intel. I'm sure legal is freaking out right now and everyone else is out drinking. It IS Friday night, afterall
  5. Aaarrrrgh!! HANLON'S RAZOR!! That's the one I've been trying to remember when I was talking about this! I forgot what it was called! Thanks Linus

However, one publication, PCGamesN published benchmarks conducted by Principled Technologies Their results claimed the 9900K was up to 50% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X in gaming. Steven Walton of TechSpot immediately thought the data looked suspicious, and eventually uncovered a series of steps taken to handicap the AMD chip in order to present the intel cpu in the best possible light. they used Corsair Vengeance memory without loading the extreme memory profile or XMP setting, setting the frequency to 2933 and leaving the loose default memory timings in place. AMD system used stock cooler while Intel used NH-U14S Game Mode enabled on AMD system (disables 50% of cores) And more! Intel responds: We are deeply appreciative of the work of the reviewer community and expect that over the coming weeks additional testing will continue to show that the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K is the world’s best gaming processor. Principled Technologies conducted this initial testing using systems running in spec, configured to show CPU performance and has published the configurations used. The data is consistent with what we have seen in our labs, and we look forward to seeing the results from additional third-party testing in the coming weeks.

Google+ profile information like name, email address, occupation, gender, and age were exposed by an API bug- even if that data was listed as private and not public by the user About 500,000 user profiles were affected by the breach. Google says that it has no evidence to suggest any third-party developers were aware of the bug or abused it. However, Google only has the initial 2 weeks of data from each developer The bug, affecting an API that was accessed by hundreds of developers, appears to have been active between 2015 and March 2018 when it was fixed Google chose not to disclose the bug when found because at the time, Facebook was embroiled in its Cambridge Analytica scandal. The Google+ shutdown will take place over the course of the next 10 months, concluding in August of 2019. Google noted that 90 percent of Google+ sessions lasted less than five seconds.

Fewer people were impacted than originally thought. Of the 50 million people whose access tokens we believed were affected, about 30 million actually had their tokens stolen. Here’s how it happened: First, the attackers already controlled a set of accounts, which were connected to Facebook friends. They used an automated technique to move from account to account so they could steal the access tokens of those friends, and for friends of those friends, and so on, totaling about 400,000 people. this technique automatically loaded those accounts’ Facebook profiles, mirroring what these 400,000 people would have seen when looking at their own profiles. Message content was not available to the attackers, with one exception. If a person in this group was a Page admin whose Page had received a message from someone on Facebook, the content of that message was available to the attackers. The attackers used a portion of these 400,000 people’s lists of friends to steal access tokens for about 30 million people. For 15 million people, attackers accessed two sets of information – name and contact details (phone number, email, or both, depending on what people had on their profiles). For 14 million people, the attackers accessed the same two sets of information, as well as other details people had on their profiles. This included username, gender, locale/language, relationship status, religion, hometown, self-reported current city, birthdate, device types used to access Facebook, education, work, the last 10 places they checked into or were tagged in, website, people or Pages they follow, and the 15 most recent searches. For 1 million people, the attackers did not access any information. In the coming days, Facebook will send customized messages to the 30 million people affected to explain what information the attackers might have accessed, as well as steps they can take to help protect themselves This attack did not include Messenger, Messenger Kids, Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, Workplace, Pages, payments, third-party apps, or advertising or developer accounts.

It’s also been tested with bottles, cans, and even the appendage of a stuffed animal—all of which showed the mysterious phantom heart rate. But coffee mugs and bananas are the best, registering heart rates of 72 and 77 BMP, respectively. the same experiment using an Apple Watch Series 4 and an Android Wear smartwatch yielded similar results, albeit it with a lower heart rate. WHY? To detect heartbeat, trackers beam a green light at a user’s wrist. Blood absorbs green light, so when blood flows faster it absorbs more green light. This process is known as photoplethysmography (PPG) Since bananas and mugs have surfaces that are more reflective than toilet paper, it makes sense that they would provide a “heart rate” more quickly and consistently than toilet paper.

    Oh it could be figured out. Some people have done what appears to be pretty significant legwork and a couple have gotten very close to real numbers over the years

    How much does LMG make from sponsors?

    We have about 25 people on staff between LMG and Floatplane Media. They all make more than minimum wage. We are profitable (not over-extended) on top of that. You can probably run some rough numbers based on that if you cared

Main News Topics Intel invests $1 Billion to meet 14nm demand Source 1: AluminiumTech https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/977040-intel-invests-1-billion-to-meet-14nm-demand/ Source 2: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13410/intel-investing-1b-to-meet-14nm-demand-prioritizing-highend-core-and-xeon (letter at the bottom) Bob Swan, Intel’s CFO and interim CEO, issued an open letter to the company’s customers and partners today. In the letter, he addressed tight supply of some of the company’s products, outlining the set of actions Intel is taking to tackle the problem. What he said: The surprising return to PC TAM (total addressable market) growth has put pressure on our factory network. We expect modest growth in the PC TAM this year for the first time since 2011 Intel’s prioritizing the production of Xeon® and Core™ processors to serve the high-performance segments of the market. supply is tight, particularly at the entry-level of the PC market. Intel believes they have at least the supply to meet the full-year revenue outlook announced in July, which was $4.5 billion higher than January expectations. To tackle the problem, Intel is: investing a record $15 billion in capital expenditures in 2018, up approximately $1 billion from the beginning of the year. They’re putting that $1 billion into 14nm manufacturing sites in Oregon, Arizona, Ireland, and Israel. This capital along with other efficiencies is increasing supply to respond to increased demand. fab investment is usually on the scale of months, so any investment now is unlikely to increase fab throughput until end of Q1 next year. making progress with 10nm. Yields are improving and they continue to expect volume production in 2019. taking a customer-first approach. We’re working to align demand with available supply. The problem from a manufacturing perspective: A fab can only produce so many silicon wafers per month Each wafer can contain multiple CPUs The new higher-core CPUs (28 core Xeon, Core i9) are larger, meaning you can fit fewer CPUs on a wafer. As demand for larger die CPUs increases, Intel just can’t make them fast enough. Therefore, Intel re-allocated fab space to its high margin Core and Xeon parts, resulting in a shortage of entry-level parts All of that is happening on their 14nm process. Therefore, they developed a new 22nm version of its H310C chipset. The letter resulted in Intel stock increasing 45 to 47 and AMD decreasing about 32 to 30 Moves of 3-5% each Amazon's Anti-Union Video leaks Source 1: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/976629-abhorrent-amazon-amazons-aggressive-anti-union-video-leaks/ Source 2: News site Gizmodo has obtained what it calls “a 45-minute union-busting training video” that was allegedly produced by Amazon and sent to Team Leaders of Whole Foods last week. Amazon bought Whole Foods las year for $13.7B The video’s narrator states that the video is “specifically designed to give you the tools that you need for success when it comes to labor organizing,” The video states: “We are not anti-union, but we are not neutral either,” “We do not believe unions are in the best interest of our customers, our shareholders, or most importantly, our associates. Our business model is built upon speed, innovation, and customer obsession—things that are generally not associated with union. When we lose sight of those critical focus areas we jeopardize everyone’s job security: yours, mine, and the associates’.” provides some background on the National Labor Relations Act Video lists “warning signs” that “can indicate associate disengagement, vulnerability to organizing, or early organizing activity,” Use of words like “living wage” and “steward” Distribution of petitions and fliers Associates raising concerns on behalf of their coworkers Wearing union t-shirts, hats, or jackets Workers “who normally aren’t connected to each other suddenly hanging out together” Workers showing an “unusual interest in policies, benefits, employee lists, or other company information” Increased negativity in the workplace “[A]ny other associate behavior that is out of character The video asks managers to listen to 10 hypothetical employees and select whether their remarks constitute a “warning sign” or “innocent interaction.” “You would never threaten to close your building just because associates joined a union. But you might need to talk about how having a union could hurt innovation which could hurt customer obsession which could ultimately threaten the building’s continued existence.” potential organization are supposed to be escalated to human resources and general managers immediately. The video itself does not appear to be publically available online; we only have select screenshots. Gizmodo has asked Amazon to publish the video Gizmodo says publishing their own copy would compromise those who provided it to them Hot take: There are times when employees need unions, and times when unions suck for both the employer and the employee Amazon would be crippled by unionized workers (Whole Foods maybe less so) This leak benefits employees because Amazon must now work harder to improve working conditions in order to prevent unionization This article documents Amazon’s poor track record with how employees are treated, but we’re actually talking about Whole Foods which has its own CEO The screenshot with the T.I.P.S is so outrageous it makes me wonder whether it’s even real.

Rapid Fire Tesla sued by SEC Source 1: Source 2: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/09/27/tesla-falls-4percent-on-report-elon-musk-sued-by-sec.html Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission for fraud The SEC complaint alleges that Musk issued "false and misleading" statements and failed to properly notify regulators of material company events. Among other remedies, the SEC is seeking to bar Musk from serving as an officer or director of a publicly traded company if found guilty. "A chairman and CEO of a public company has important responsibilities to shareholders," "Those responsibilities include the need to be scrupulous and careful about the truth and accuracy of statements made to the investing public, whether those statements are made in traditional forms such as a press release or an earnings call or through less formal methods such as Twitter or other social media." "Neither celebrity status nor reputation as a technological innovator provide an exemption from the federal securities laws," Musk’s response: "This unjustified action by the SEC leaves me deeply saddened and disappointed," "I have always taken action in the best interests of truth, transparency and investors. Integrity is the most important value in my life and the facts will show I never compromised this in any way." The SEC, in its complaint, alleged Musk knew that he: (1) had not agreed upon any terms for a going-private transaction with the Fund or any other funding source; (2) had no further substantive communications with representatives of the Fund beyond their 30 to 45 minute meeting on July 31; (3) had never discussed a going-private transaction at a share price of $420 with any potential funding source; (4) had not contacted any additional potential strategic investors to assess their interest in participating in a going-private transaction; (5) had not contacted existing Tesla shareholders to assess their interest in remaining invested in Tesla as a private company; (6) had not formally retained any legal or financial advisors to assist with a going-private transaction; (7) had not determined whether retail investors could remain invested in Tesla as a private company; (8) had not determined whether there were restrictions on illiquid holdings by Tesla's institutional investors; and (9) had not determined what regulatory approvals would be required or whether they could be satisfied. In the hours after the initial tweet, Musk doubled down on the proposal in subsequent tweets. The SEC cited those subsequent tweets in the complaint as additional misleading statements. Tesla and the SEC were close to a no-guilt settlement but Musk pulled out at the last minute Tesla would have had to pay a nominal fine, and the CEO would not have had to admit any guilt However, the settlement would have barred Musk as chairman for two years and would require Tesla to appoint two new independent directors Musk refused to sign the deal because he felt that by settling he would not be truthful to himself, and he wouldn't have been able to live with the idea that he agreed to accept a settlement and any blemish associated with that No Sex, Drugs, or Violence on Apple’s Streaming Service Source 1: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/977052-apple-cuts-out-sex-drugs-and-violence-in-upcoming-original-content-to-appear-family-friendly/ Source 2: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/09/apples-original-content-will-shy-away-from-gratuitous-sex-violence/ Source 3: https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/22/17890082/apple-streaming-service-original-content-no-sex-and-violence-report Apple has edited or axed some of its original programming plans because it doesn't want shows to include "gratuitous sex, profanity, or violence." Tim Cook reportedly killed a semi-autobiographical drama about Dr. Dre's life. Named Vital Signs, the drama had scenes that included drug use, sex, and guns. Apple has apparently been replacing showrunners on shows that don’t meet the vision: replaced the showrunner on the series that stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon- allegedly in part because they took issue with some of the humor written into the show, and Apple wanted a more upbeat show in general. Showrunner Bryan Fuller stepped down from the revival of Spielberg's Amazing Stories: Apple found the program's original premise "a little dark." The reason is that Apple is a product company first and foremost. They can’t risk negative sentiment toward their content to affect device sales. Apple Services exist only to bolster hardware sales It’s also possible it’s partly strategic as ‘family friendly’ is a differentiator in its own right Apple has been widely expected to begin rolling out its original content in March 2019, but delays could push this back.

Disney was supposed to get Fox’s 39% of Sky as part of the deal to buy Fox.

This allowed them to steal Facebook access tokens which they could then use to take over people’s accounts. Access tokens are digital keys that keep people logged in to Facebook so they don’t need to re-enter their password every time they use the app. Facebook has now fixed the vulnerability and informed law enforcement. They also reset the access tokens of the 50 million accounts affected And took the precautionary step of resetting access tokens for another 40 million accounts that have been subject to a “View As” look-up in the last year after they have logged back in, people will get a notification at the top of their News Feed explaining what happened. Facebook is temporarily turning off the “View As” feature while we conduct a thorough security review. This attack exploited the interaction of multiple issues in the code. It stemmed from a change made to Facebook’s video uploading feature in July 2017, which impacted “View As.” Facebook has yet to determine whether these accounts were misused or any information accessed. Nor do they know who’s behind the attacks or where they’re based
