    BachChain got a reaction from GenericFanboy in 10 - oneplus 9 coming soon with hasselblad camera   
    It's like they're taunting me by continually including the one deal breaker in an otherwise great device

    BachChain got a reaction from FakeNSA in Too fast for its own good: Intel kills consumer Optane   
    Summary
    Originally conceived as one of several next-generation solid state storage technologies, Intel's Optane memory promised higher performance, lower latency, and longer endurance than conventional NAND SSDs. While this has led to Optane being very successful in the professional and data-center markets, the consumer segment has had a somewhat more troubled history. Since its original release in early 2017, Optane has suffered from multiple problems that prevented it from reaching widespread adoption; from high costs and low densities to seemingly arbitrary platform restrictions and esoteric intended use cases. Four years later, Intel has decided enough is enough and is pulling the plug. In a move that seemingly came out of nowhere, Intel has announced that they are immediately discontinuing all consumer oriented SKUs of their Optane high speed SSDs. The affected models are:
    Optane Memory 900P and 905P - AIC - 280GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1.5TB Optane Memory 900P and 905P - U.2 - 280GB, 480GB, 960GB, 1.5TB Optane Memory 905P - M.2 - 380GB Optane Memory M10 - M.2  - 16GB, 32GB, 64GB Optane Memory 800P - M.2 - 58GB, 118GB Intel apparently wants to get this over with as quickly as possible, as the discontinuation dates they set had already passed by the time they sent the announcement with the last shipments going out on February 26. Following this move, it appears the only consumer drives utilizing Optane technology will be Optane/NAND hybrids like the recently announced H20 O.E.M. drive.

     I've never used an Optane drive, but I had been looking forward to when these next-gen ultra low latency drives became widespread. Undoubtedly, this will cause a significant delay to that transition.

    BachChain got a reaction from Shakymango in Red Panda-mic; Mozilla fires a quarter of its staff   
    Mozilla corporation, the company best known for maintaining the web browser Firefox, has been forced to lay off 25% of its approximately 1000 staff, citing economic downturn due to the ongoing Covid crisis. This comes after Mozilla had previously layed off 70 people in January due to lackluster sales of its then recently launched VPN services.
     
    The company states that they will be focusing more of their resources on their paid services to increase and diversify their revenue.
     
    My thoughts
    I use Firefox exclusively and would prefer it to continue existing, but I also don't have any use for their new services

    The video overall is significantly brighter than normal videos and several bright spots are washed out on SDR (Linus's hair). I hope that's not normal, otherwise it'll be just like the aspect ratio where it's a small improvement for a minority of users at the detriment of everybody else.
