  1. Kaleido: a portable computer the size of LTT waterbottle with inbuilt projector. https://liliputing.com/2020/02/kaleido-is-a-screenless-portable-pc-with-a-foldable-keyboard-and-integrated-projector.html
  2. Unfortunately I will be happy to show you the proof otherwise. f This is from my gmail from 2016 when I noticed it from another email and sent test email to myself. This is when avast started doing it via the browser protection they had. This is what made me stop use avast all those years ago immediately.
  3. How about looking into the new chinese X86 KaiXian processors which have now come to the markets made by a chinese company called Zhaoxin. They have already previously released some lower end processors for consumers too, but now there's some more serious ones available: KX-U6780A and the KX-U6880A
  4. So, avast antivirus suite, favorite free antivirus package of 400 million people has been caught selling user browsing and other user data for advertisers and other nefarious purposes. This officially changes status of Avast from antivirus suite supposed to protect us from spyware and malware and other nasty things into spyware itself. Avast CEO Ondrej Vlcek happily commented the following: Personally I already stopped using Avast some years ago when they started adding signatures to all my emails without user consent advertising their product. (Still an avast user using web protection or email protection? send a test email with gmail and you'll be surprised to find out this is true. ) Free lunches aren't free after all. https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomasbrewster/2019/12/09/are-you-one-of-avasts-400-million-users-this-is-why-it-collects-and-sells-your-web-habits/
  5. Put that new fancy workshop of yours to true test, and maybe give Alex a good reason to buy more new toys: build a PC inside a real antique safe and use that safes pure metallic mass to help with cooling the machine. You could sell it off ass "LTTs most heavy PC build yet"
  6. British Broadcasting Corporation more commonly known to us as BBC has set up a tor website to provide access to the news in places where it might be otherwise limited. It is interesting to see more mainstream service providers and even news outlets take up a stand on equal access to information like this - this will also serve to help with bringing up the reputation of onion TOR network from just that evil place where you can buy drugs.

  7. Internet archive has done what it does best, and has added over 2500 "new" old MS-DOS games to its vast library for preservation and public view. You can view the full selection of games they just added at https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_msdos_games?and[]=emulator_start%3A*iafix*&sin=&sort=-publicdate Time to get your nostalgy-trip going or perhaps educate your kids what gaming really used to be like back in the day - for free! https://blog.archive.org/2019/10/13/2500-more-ms-dos-games-playable-at-the-archive/ https://www.cnet.com/news/internet-archive-releases-2500-ms-dos-games-so-you-can-relive-the-90s/
  8. New chinese phone manufactorer challenger is spreading to Europe with their new flagship: https://www.realme.com/eu/realme-x2-pro Looks pretty interesting.
  9. Samsung has unveiled its latest monster: 108 megapixel camera module with which it aims to put an end to the camera competition once and for all. Surprisingly to many this module has been jointly developed in collaboration by Samsung and Xiaomi. Module is named Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX and is expected to bring us major improvements to low-light scenarios, something that Samsung cameras have famously underperformed on so far. Mass production is starting now in August and first phones speculated to be using it are suspected to be be Xiaomi Redmi phones, but this is yet to be confirmed as neither Samsung or Xiaomi have yet to reveal any models with this monster of a camera in it. https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-takes-mobile-photography-to-the-next-level-with-industrys-first-108mp-image-sensor-for-smartphones https://www.engadget.com/2019/08/12/samsungs-108-megapixel-mobile-sensor-closes-in-on-mirrorless-ca/
  10. Everyones favorite chinese smart device manufactorer Huawei has announced their new operating system: HongmengOS, also known as HarmonyOS. Modularized, open source operating system developed by them since 2012 aimed to be Android alternative. New operating system will also take off major amount of pressure from Huawei with possible US sanctions effecting them in the future too. Sanctions would not have any effect on using this operating system. According to Huawei HarmonyOS is Cross-platform support includes smartphones, smartwatches, computers and other smart apparel and virtually any iot-devices you could possibly think of. This is very interesting move from Huawei with all the recent accusations on spying - releasing the new operating system as Open Source will do wonders to alleviate any possible concerns and call the "they're spying" accusation bluff quite majorly. https://twitter.com/HuaweiMobile/status/1159730902341234688?s=20 https://www.androidauthority.com/huawei-harmonyos-1017511/ https://techcrunch.com/2019/08/09/harmonyos-huawei-release/
  11. Develop your own chromium based browser as video project. Something completely bonkers, not serious one.
  12. Tamagotchis are making comeback with Bandai releasing all new fancy "modern" versions now. I would love to see Linus review them in nostalgy-trip video.
  13. Addiction to gaming is now officially a mental health problem. WHO has approved video game addiction as officially recognisable mental health problem as Gaming Disorder under subcategory ICD-11 as diagnosis which is described as follows: "Disorders due to substance use or addictive behaviors" alongside alcoholism, gambling addiction, and, curiously, a section devoted to harmful cannabis use dependence." The addiction itself is classified as follows: 6C51 Gaming Disorder Gaming disorder is characterized by a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behaviour (‘digital gaming’ or ‘video-gaming’), which may be online (i.e., over the internet) or offline, manifested by: impaired control over gaming (e.g., onset, frequency, intensity, duration, termination, context); increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities; and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences. The behaviour pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning. The pattern of gaming behaviour may be continuous or episodic and recurrent. The gaming behaviour and other features are normally evident over a period of at least 12 months in order for a diagnosis to be assigned, although the required duration may be shortened if all diagnostic requirements are met and symptoms are severe.
