    ARikozuM reacted to trag1c in Alphabet shuts down Loon!   
    I would say most of these types of companies are essentially providing services for no other reason than R&D. At the end of the day they're not a replacement for proper infrastructure, but more of a stop gap measure, so it is like bringing bottled water into an area with water filtration problems.

    ARikozuM reacted to Moonzy in 'Your c**k is mine now' - Hacker hacks 'smart' chastity cage and demands $750 of BTC as ransom   
    Summary
    Smart chastity cage manufacturer didn't secure the API used to control the device, allowing remote attackers to lock it and demand $750 worth of BTC.
     

     
     
    My thoughts
    Another case of badly secured IOT device. At least this time no one (that reported the incident to Motherboard) was caught wearing it.
    My reaction would be this meme, when I know that IOT is the future we're heading to, and it's not very bright as of late.

    ARikozuM reacted to BiG StroOnZ in Intel’s Stacked Nanosheet Transistors Could Be the Next Step in Moore’s Law   
    A process that builds two transistors—one directly atop the other—will boost chip density. NMOS and PMOS devices usually sit side-by-side on chips. Intel has found a way to build them atop one another, compressing circuit sizes.

    While new GPU and CPU rumors are a dime a dozen. This is some of the more interesting stuff, IMO, as it tackles an issue that will plague the technology space very soon. The inevitable end of the traditional Moore's law observation, that has essentially been the bread and butter of computer performance improvements the past few decades. Supposedly, there have been some recent results thus far (employing this technology) that haven't proven to be very promising (apparent inconsistencies towards the upper layers) but there are other organizations that are also pursuing the same research under other names (e.g. complementary FETs, or CFETs). Therefore, I expect more positive progress is to eventually happen (especially considering these other organizations are tackling it somewhat different than Intel is, giving variation to the implementation).

    Pffft, who cares about stockholders... these suckers invested into the company despite knowing exactly what was going on with their employee treatment AND they are most likely the ones who pressured the company to release as soon as possible, don't get dragged into this.
     
    This won't do anything for YOU and it will just embolden those who enable this sort of situation.
    They won't get anything, this isn't about misleading the costumers, it's about misleading the investors.

    ARikozuM reacted to porina in Major hedge fund advises Intel to outsource CPU manufacturing   
    Those "investors" buying $1B of Intel so they can suggest what Intel should do... that's some serious cash there, but based on today's market cap, that's about 0.5% of Intel they control. Unless they can persuade other larger investors that is the right thing to do, doubt it'll go anywhere. I have to wonder if it is a wider manipulation of some kind. They may be able to gain elsewhere by these moves.

     I'm surprised but also not really surprised considering other countries like china have started and continue to expand their semiconductor market. The future of tech as always is becoming more and more interesting, and I'm curious to see how will this affect the market.

    ARikozuM reacted to Moonzy in UPDATE: NVIDIA backtracks - Hardware Unboxed blacklisted from receiving GeForce FE review samples over “focus on rasterization over ray-tracing”   
    In hindsight, if they just sent an email saying:
    "If you could cover ray trace aspects more, doesn't have to be positive, it'd be great" and didn't pull the FE cards until HUB decides to say no, that might've been better, PR wise
     
    Of course them pulling FE after the refusal would still get backlash, but it's more understandable

    Why? People wanted Cyberpunk 2077, not the broken, buggy mess we got that happens to have the same name. It's entirely on CDPR for making the decision to release the game in an unacceptable state. If they didn't want public pressure to release the game, they shouldn't have announced a release date until the game was actually functional. And aside from the technical issues, looking at past marketing for the game, I'm surprised there aren't more people calling them out for what seems like blatant false advertising and fraud given that many features they advertised are seemingly nowhere to be found. I find it interesting how the gaming industry is allowed get away with so much shit that other industries would be legally raked over the coals for.

    ARikozuM reacted to Master Disaster in You hear that Mr Anderson, that's the sound of inevitability.... US law firm lookining into class action against CDPR   
    I'll cut out the recap of what happened, I'm sure we all know the story by now.
     
    US law firm Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP is by all accounts looking at setting up a class action suit against CDPR on behalf of the companies shareholders, the reason cited in the proposal is that CDPR may have issued false information to shareholders/investors that had a material impact on their investment portfolio
    This suit stems from the fact CDPR withheld review keys to the console version of the game until less than 24 hours before launch as pointed out by review aggregator OpenCritic. It's alleged that CDPR deliberately withheld these keys to hide the state of the game from shareholders and now CDPR stocks have taken a dive of a cliff many investors have lost lots of money, something which they might have avoided had they known about the state of the game in advance.
    CDPR's own co CEO is on the record as saying the company ignored all the warning signs that the game simply was not ready for release.
    While fans of CDPR have been trying to defend them and the game, critics of the companies management are claiming the dev team were forced to release the game before they thought it was ready.
    To date CDPR's stock price has fallen by around 30%.

    The vultures are circling the dying corpse, you know a company screwed the pooch when the lawyers smell free money.
     
    Now I don't wish to defend CDPR but I had heard that Poland has ULTRA strict laws (stricter than most other countries) about insider information that can affect the price of the companies stocks. Apparently they are not allowed to share this information with anybody outside of senior management, anybody else privvy to it must sign an NDA to say they won't share it. Now to be clear, I'm not Polish and I have no idea if this is even true or just some nonsense made up by a defendist, if anyone who is Polish wants to chime in I'd appreciate the clarification.
