US Courts say Price Caps don't apply to areas with only one ISP

Source 1: rcmaehl https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/966584-one-isp-to-rule-them-all-us-courts-say-price-caps-dont-apply-to-areas-with-only-one-isp/

Source 2: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2018/08/fcc-can-define-markets-with-only-one-isp-as-competitive-court-rules/

 

  • An appeals court has upheld a FCC ruling that broadband markets can be competitive even when there is only one Internet provider.

    • The original FCC decision was appealed by Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) and purchasers of business broadband, including Sprint and Windstream

  • Actually it’s a little more nuanced than it sounds:

    • The decision eliminated price caps in any given county if 50% of potential customers "are within a half mile of a location served by a competitive provider."

  • The FCC’s position is that nearby networks can close the half-mile gap, expanding into the areas in question.

    • In theory, if the reigning, single ISP is charging too much for service, then the neighbouring competitor should be financially incentivized to expand into the area.

    • The FCC "cited evidence that some competitors will build as far as a mile out," and said that "most of the buildings at issue are far closer to competitive fiber than half a mile,"

  • The CLEC’s position is that it’s often not feasible for neighbouring ISPs to expand into these areas.

    • But the FCC argued that "the CLEC Petitioners' studies inflate costs by

      • selecting the most expensive build (entirely underground lines),

      • presuming a separate lateral line for each individual low-bandwidth customer,

      • and treating the main fiber ring as part of the cost of reaching new customers rather than as an existing 'sunk' cost near a potential new customer,"

  • So there’s conflicting evidence. The Judge’s ruling?

    • We recognize that the relevant data presents radically different pictures of the competitiveness of the market depending on the economic theory applied and the weight given to conflicting pieces of evidence.

    • But the FCC may rationally choose which evidence to believe among conflicting evidence in its proceedings, especially when predicting what will happen in the markets under its jurisdiction.

    • Thus, we deny the petitions for review as to the Competitive Market Test because the FCC's resolution of competing evidence was not arbitrary and capricious.

 

Rumour: NVIDIA Controls AIB Launch & Driver Distribution -HardOCP

Source 1: Athan Immortal https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/965945-nvidia-controls-aib-launch-and-driver-distribution-hardocp/

Source 2: https://www.hardocp.com/article/2018/08/28/nvidia_controls_aib_launch_driver_distribution/

 

  • Much like NVIDIA exerted control over AIB's and OEM's brands with GPP, it is now exerting control over who the AIB has review its own custom cards.

    • NVIDIA has demanded that its AIBs tell NVIDIA who will be reviewing the AIB's custom RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti cards.

    • Nvidia has emailed AIB’s asking for reviewers’ email and phone number

  • Therefore, lists of reviewers have been submitted to NVIDIA by the AIBs

    • NVIDIA has put together its own list of "approved reviewers," and sent their approved list back to the AIBs in order to let them know who they are allowed to sample review cards to.

  • NVIDIA is not allowing its AIBs to distribute drivers with their review cards. For a reviewer to have access, they must:

    • sign NVIDIA's multi-year NDA ,

    • log into a protected site in order to obtain the driver,

    • download from there into a machine with the new RTX card present.

  • Tom’s Hardware’s new Editor in Chief has published an article advocating for buying Nvidia’s new RTX graphics cards immediately - before public benchmarking or widespread adoption by developers - so that you can maximize the number of minutes you’re alive with ray tracing in your life.

GlobalFoundries Halts 7nm Development

Source 1: Lurick https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/965458-globalfoundries-halts-7nm-development/

Source 2: gallcomp https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/965748-globalfoundries-to-stop-making-next-gen-chips-for-amd/

Source 3: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13277/globalfoundries-stops-all-7nm-development

 

  • GlobalFoundries was on track to tape out its clients’ first chips made using its 7 nm process technology in the fourth quarter of this year, but “a few weeks ago” the company decided to take a drastic, strategic turn

    • They decided to cease development of bleeding edge manufacturing technologies and stop all work on its 7LP (7 nm) fabrication processes, which will not be used for any client.

    • Instead, the company will focus on specialized process technologies for clients in emerging high-growth markets.

    • These technologies will initially be based on the company’s 14LPP/12LP platform and will include RF, embedded memory, and low power features.

  • The CTO stressed that the decision was made not based on technical issues that the company faced, but on a careful consideration of business opportunities

  • Keep in mind that AMD’s first 7 nm product was designed for TSMC’s CLN7FF from the beginning, so the company did not bet on GF’s 7LP in late 2018 anyway, and no rush with the manufacturing technology was needed for GF’s key customer.

  • Along with the cancellation of the 7LP, GlobalFoundries essentially canned all pathfinding and research operations for 5 nm and 3 nm nodes.

    • They will continue to work with the IBM Research Alliance until the end of this year, but GF is not sure it makes sense to invest in R&D for ‘bleeding edge’ nodes given that it does not plan to use them any time soon.

  • Apple’s September 12th event is expected to include the introduction of three new iPhones, and 9to5Mac has provided the first look at both new 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones: the iPhone XS

  • They think:

    • the new 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones will both be called iPhone XS.

    • iPhone XS will come in a new gold color option not previously offered on the new design.

 

LEGO built a life size, drivable Bugatti from over a million Technic pieces

Source 1: https://techcrunch.com/2018/08/30/lego-built-a-life-size-drivable-bugatti-from-over-a-million-technic-pieces/

Source 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=40&v=ZQdlCQmzUAM

 

  • Built partly as a passion project amongst Lego’s creative team and partly as a promo to show off at the Italian Grand Prix, the model’s final piece count clocks in at over one million Technic pieces.

  • Construction started in March 2018 and took 13,500 hours.

  • Even the engine is made of Lego.

    • over two thousand Lego Power Function motors in a massive array, giving it a total theoretical horsepower of 5.3.

    • 24 motor “packs”, each made up of 96 individual Lego motors, hook into a steel chain that drives the wheels.

    • the motors alone would cost you over $70,000

  • They got it up to around 13 miles per hour, it theoretically tops out at around 19 miles per hour.

  • it’s not entirely Lego – there are some components that just can’t be replicated in plastic when dealing with something that all together weighs over 1.5 tons.

    • there’s a steel frame,

    • a pair of batteries,

    • some 3d printed gears,

    • and the whole thing sits on top of actual Bugatti wheels.

  • Other neat things:

    • A detachable steering wheel (...isn’t everything detachable?)

    • Doors that actually open and close

    • A spoiler that lifts and lowers at the push of a button, with a control panel to toggle all the lights and electronics

    • A functional speedometer, also built out of Technic pieces

 

Intel CPU shortage?

  • Analysts at Baird said Monday that their channel checks showed potential CPU shortage issues surfacing for Intel that could result in some inventory depletion in the fourth quarter

    • analysts are concerned Intel may be struggling with 10-nanometer process technology manufacturing in its Client Computing Group (CCG)

    • “Very recent channel feedback informs us of potential CPU shortage issue surfacing for Intel, which could result in some inventory depletion in 4Q/1Q for Intel's CCG,”

 

Blizzard kills loot boxes in Belgium

Source 1: SC2Mitch https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/965825-loot-boxes-in-heroes-of-the-storm-overwatch-will-be-partially-removed-in-belgium-due-to-regulations/

Source 2: https://www.pcgamesn.com/overwatch/overwatch-belgium-loot-boxes

Source 3: https://eu.forums.blizzard.com/en/overwatch/t/paid-loot-boxes-and-loot-chests-disabled-for-players-in-belgium/8139

 

  • In April, the Belgian Gaming Commission concluded that paid loot boxes in Overwatch are considered gambling under local law.

    • The laws cited here aren’t new. Instead, the Belgian Gaming Commission has concluded that loot boxes constitute online gambling, which is already regulated by existing laws

  • Blizzard will soon disable loot box purchases in Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm for players in Belgium, in compliance with local law.

  • Players in the region will still be able to earn the random drops by playing, and will have access to all in-game content, but they’ll no longer be able to buy those loot boxes directly.

    • As a result, we have no choice but to implement measures that will prevent Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm players located in Belgium from purchasing in-game loot boxes and loot chests with real money and gems.”

  • Other offending games: FIFA 18 and CS:GO.

    • Valve has disabled CS:GO loot boxes in Belgium in similar efforts toward compliance.

  • Many suspected that Hearthstone would come under fire, but it seems that’s not yet the case.

 

Samsung, LG, & AUO showing off 8k displays

Source 4: https://hothardware.com/news/auo-85-inch-8k-120hz-hdr-tv

 

  • At IFA - the largest CE show outside of the states - display manufacturers have been showing off 8K displays

    • 8K sports four times the pixel count of 4K and sixteen times that of standard HDTV

    • that’s over 33 million pixels at a 7,680 × 4,320 resolution

  • LG showed an 8K OLED that they hope will be available in 2019

    • LG expects 8K TV sales to grow to 5 million units by 2022, possibly exceeding the growth of 4K over its first three years.

    • Average screen-sizes are increasing: 65 is the new 55

  • Samsung showed its first 8K QLED TV: The Q900R.

    • AI upscaling.

    • 4,000 nit peak brightness

    • available in 65-inch, 75-inch, 82-inch and 85-inch sizes.

  • AUO made 85-inch 8K panel

    • 120Hz

    • 1200 nits

    • Gate on Array tech for bezel-less design

  • Content?

    • Live 8K broadcasts are already underway.

    • The bandwidth to support a quality 8K stream is hard to come by, at least in a good portion of the U.S.,

    • A compressed 8K or upscaled 4K signal could look superior to today’s 4K streams. — but only on especially large displays.

I messaged Riley to tell him people were upset at the way he was treated on the WAN Show and to make sure he was okay and he had to go find the timestamps people were posting to see why he was supposed to be upset. 

Im happy to see that it was just loss in translation over video then.

I'd almost be more offended as him that people couldn't tell it was a joke and actually thought that Riley might enjoy the intimate company of goats.

Bro, he's Canadian. They're into weird stuff.

 

Plus they've got some sexy breeds up there.

This is so dumb. At the beginning of the wan show, linus even was so enthusiastic about what Riley does on the side, and asked him how he was doing and basically gave him free promotion. It seemed like it was unplanned too, but people seem to just dismiss that and go straight for the 'harsh' parts without looking at context.

Riley and I have known each other for almost 8 years and we've worked together in some capacity for over half of that time. 

 

He asked to review a graphics card as a total joke. That's not his forte and he's perfectly comfortable with that. Even back at NCIX Tech Tips (as he mentioned on the WAN Show today) he got Ivan's help with a lot of the benchmarking stuff. Big deal. 

 

You also need to understand that he's not some intern who isn't sure about his job security or his skills. Evaluating gaming cards may not be one of them but who cares? That's not what he was hired to do.

 

Riley was brought in as a specialist for TechLinked. 

 

Something you guys might also not realize is that Riley is perfectly comfortable dishing out his share of trolling off-camera - even if he's not sure where the limits are yet with the live audience. 

 

If LMG was a horrible place to work and anyone actually took me seriously about this stuff, we'd probably have a little more turnover, don't you think? These are very talented people who could get a job tomorrow if they felt like it. 

 

We tease each other, but it's part of having some fun at work instead of being all corporate. 

 

I messaged Riley to tell him people were upset at the way he was treated on the WAN Show and to make sure he was okay and he had to go find the timestamps people were posting to see why he was supposed to be upset. 

 

So it's probably worthwhile to try re-watching with all of that in mind..

 

 

 

I did miss a lot of the WAN show so I may have missed some of the biggest parts (I'll need to see when I watch all of it later) but yeah joking around is always been part of LTT. I really didn't expect that they're needed to be a big press release over this. I thought everybody knew that you guys like messing around and it seemed pretty obvious that it was more or less a joke question and that he didn't really care about it too much. Hope this doesn't cause you guys too much trouble :-)

The Riley-gate sounds just like the "racist" thing between Berkel and Dennis. I haven't watched show yet (still in progress of waking up), so this will be an assumption. There was inside joke going on which was shown to audience as workplace bullying. You guys really need to remember that we only see what is shown on camera and we react accordingly.

 

These things happen to others too. One example being James "2GD" Harding's firing from The International host position because of homofobic comments towards his co-hosts. There too it was just inside jokes continued on camera which was interpreted wrong by audience.

I work in an auto shop, all the guys there razz eachother on a regular basis, once you've been working with certain people for a while you get to know what buttons to push that don't offend. Ladies and gents...all this was is pure harmless fun.
