Related: AMD exec: Nvidia fell for our double bluff
“According to Herkelman, this whole thing was a chess match, and Nvidia fell into his clever trap as planned. AMD initially bid the card high, Nvidia undercut it with the lowest price it could afford, and AMD then dropped the hammer on Nvidia with its own lowest price.”
Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
Internet Explorer and Edge send the full URL of every page you visit to MS, plus your unique account ID
“It all has to do with the “SmartScreen Filter,” designed to keep you away from malicious sites.”
You three guys using those browsers should be very upset.
Never-Googlers: Web users take the ultimate step to guard their data
“Kelly is one of a hearty few who are taking the ultimate step to keep their files and online life safe from prying eyes: turning off Google entirely. That means eschewing some of the most popular services on the Web, including Gmail, Google search, Google Maps, the Chrome browser, Android mobile operating software and even YouTube…As a result, more consumers are taking measures to wrest greater control of their personal data, like deleting Facebook and its photo-sharing app Instagram. About 15 percent of U.S. households’ primary shoppers never shop on Amazon, according to Kantar ShopperScape data. Some Amazon Echo and Google voice-activated speakers have landed in the trash. And some consumers are saving photos and other personal documents to external hard drives, rather than on Google or Apple’s clouds.”

US attorney general William Barr says Americans should accept security risks of encryption backdoors
“The U.S. is far from alone in calling on tech companies to give law enforcement access.
Earlier this year U.K. authorities proposed a new backdoor mechanism, the so-called “ghost protocol,” which would give law enforcement access to encrypted communications as though they were part of a private conversation. Apple, Google, Microsoft and WhatsApp rejected the proposal.”
That’s a rather motley crew banding together there. They happen to be right too.
New Law Requires Children at Breweries to Remain on Leash at All Times
“Yes, your son or daughter is a superstar. He or she is indeed the king or queen of the universe,” Fredericks admitted. “But that doesn’t mean they can’t wreak havoc either. Leash laws help protect the public, the parents, and a lot of beer. It’s something we all need.”
Would it were true.
