  1. Source (in Chinese) A Weibo post quoted in the source Right: the alleged (former) writer Up left: Huawei's promo pic Bottom left: Original picture with an underwear superimposed on the moon Bottom middle: alleged "enhanced" photo when using P30 Pro to shoot the underwear moon pic Left: Chu Shi Biao in a circular frame Middle: blurred imaged alleged to be used as the original pic Right: the alleged "enhanced" picture by P30 Pro Personal thought: Personally can't verify if this is true or not. But if it's true, this is some major bull crap they've pulled. Imagine taking a photo of your kid with a Thomas the Tank engine model and Thomas' face becomes the moon surface... That'll be really creepy. If LTT has a review sample, maybe try this out and let us know if this is (still) true. Would be really funny if a moon pic with a dickbutt superimposed or a blurred Linus butt pic ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) becomes a nice normal moon pic.

    The WEIRDEST PC Parts we Found on AliExpress

    I'm actually very curious to know if Riley's usb to pcie adapter can be used for laptops. My laptop doesn't have a thunderbolt port for a external gpu and I don't have space for a desktop Also, any direct link to that adaptor?

    Nvidia Brings DXR Raytracing to Pascal, Turing and Volta

    One more reason to tell my teammates why I suck/screwed up. Instead of saying "I lagged", now it's "I turned on RTX on my 1060"

    Chrome to add duckduckgo as search option

    I guess it's more aiming for people who want searching result that aren't biased to what they've been doing online, instead of privacy? But it's definitely a weird move. The only reason I could think of using it is for people trying to get information from new sources instead of having the same few sites always in the top result.
  5. Ironic... Facebook announcing their service update on Twitter...

    Huawei caught faking photos again

    Curious. I'd thought LTT would be jumping on Huawei's price-to-performance ratio after seeing they bought a bunch of shady cheap stuff from Aliexpress/Taobao. Not to mention similar products, like the LG Gram, were reviewed before.

    Is it possible that LTT didn't get a review sample of it? After all, Huawei's COO was arrested in Canada and they're not really happy about it.

    Volk Fi - Long-Range Radio Network for Smartphones

    While you can simply not have a network on your phone, someone's phone yours connected to still need a connection. I don't see how that'll be censorship resistant as they claimed to be. And that also adds a risk of someone adding malware to their phones and intercept your data. If it supports VPN, it probably wouldn't be a big deal. If they don't, well count me out. Still, I'd be concern about connecting my phone to so many other unknown people's phone.

    I doubt they'd fall in the near future. They have the backing of the Chinese Communist Party and 1.3 billion people's wealth. Even with all the western countries banning them, they'd still have African and Asian market, which is huge. Huawei, along with Xiaomi and numerous other Chinese electronics companies, are being accused of stealing IP from Apple, Samsung and other tech companies. Whether or not these accusations are accurate is up to debate.

    Blockchain: Pirate Killer ?

    Isn't this like how TV, especially cable TV, works in the old time? You paid for the service, be it the TV itself or a decoder box, the you can watch the shows and whatnot. Technically, the TV signal is only broadcasted once by the company. But there are going to be someone who paid the service, record it with a recorder and put it in a rent shop. Except all these are now in digital.

    Can't take a nice picture with all the smog and photo ban during the Lianghui (the annual meeting of the Communist party)

    Huawei caught faking photos again

    Source: GSMAren The Verge (Stefan Etienne) Personal thought: Why am I not surprised... I'm sure most people would know DSLR is better equipped for photography (duh). Not stating it clearly is just misleading. And if you're going to be a dick, at least put some effort into it. Use one that aren't on the web... Also, sorry for the Verge's link. It was where I saw it first from Chrome's suggestions. Stefan (the writer) is the thermal paste guy btw.
  13. Well... They can take that idea for free from me. If they have the capital to fight the US government, who am I to stop them from exposing the ridiculousness of the situation? Imagine some random company calls themselves "Linus Media Group" and trademarking "Linus". No one can be called Linus anymore...
  14. I guess they should go try sue the U.S. government for using the word Vice in "Vice-president", "Vice admiral", and many more... Heck, they should go sue any company that has a "vice president"
  15. I believe it's not the URL name. It's the displaying name (? not sure what's that call). It's like the channel display name "Bitwit" for Kyle instead of his URL name "AwesomeSauceNews". It's the former that is Vice afaik. Not sure what's the latter one is.
