Re: this is not bias
Yeah I don't see it either. Both images look equally black.

"The government isn't banning them" yet. "Companies aren't firing people for using the old terms" yet.
"They're just trying to gently change the language over time." The only reason they're being gentle is cause they think they can't get away with force. Yet.
This is indeed "death by a thousand cuts."
Xor cache address input with a per-process key? Xor should be fast...
This would somewhat degrade cache performance as the switched-to process overwrites the addresses of the switched-from process, but two processes shouldn't share all that much cache anyways. And if we switch back quickly, a lot of the cache should still be intact.
This seems equivalent to per-address layout randomization (with 64 bits).
Though if we're screwing with the silicon anyway, might as well tag cache entries per process.
"It's the company's first crewed launch since its founding" is a nonsensical sentence, since the qualifier "since its founding" does absolutely nothing. Obviously SpaceX did not do any launches before it was founded, crewed or otherwise.
Hence "why don't you count the (obviously nonexistent) crewed launches before SpaceX was founded?"
Customized messages, additional data reporting: all of that can be done just as well using the decentralized model, by having the app store the information on the phone and report it when it finds a contact.
The only thing centralization helps with is doing analysis without a match and without asking the users.
There's nothing wrong with that, per se. But Microsoft did go the extra mile deep into assholishness in how they pursued that legitimate interest. Compare "You used to threaten to lose the Mafia money, now you gain the Mafia money so you don't have to worry about being gunned down in the street anymore." Factually it's correct, and it's legitimate to want to gain money and not lose money, but there are better and worse ways to go about it and Microsoft has gone about it in the worst ways again and again. That now their interests are aligned differently doesn't change one iota of their historic or even ongoing strategy.
"Don't blame businesses" Why not, if it works? Blame is also part of the environment in which businesses are expected to operate. The free market includes private individuals freely casting blame on bad actors. There is no moral imperative in the free market to not assign blame.
"She claimed demand for enterprise PCs should fall this year, with the Windows 10 refresh cycle coming to an end, so Intel shortages may become less of an issue."
"It's okay, guys- demand is drying up anyways, so the fact that we can't deliver will stop mattering."
Not sure how this is supposed to make people feel good about Intel.
Trying to prove a claim does not add anything to the meaning of the claim. If I call you a cunt and then later on hire a PI to establish if you have, in fact, a vagina, this does not retroactively recontextualize the claim as anything other than an off-the-cuff insult.
Presumably Musk thought it'd be hilarious if he was, in fact, factual in his random insult. That doesn't mean it wasn't a random insult at the time.
German here- when I moved, I just rented the new apartment, then went to the city office with a copy of the rental agreement and got registered as a local resident. Then they gave me a certificate of residence that I could use to prove I was living there.
Not sure why you'd do it any other way.
edit: Oh yeah, you don't even really need to keep it - for a nominal €5 fee, you can get a new one at any time.
edit: And yes, you can do it online and get it mailed to you.
Mess with the Windows folder.
Mess with the MBR.
Mess with the certificate store.
Flash BIOS and device firmware.
Disable the virus scanner.
Disable Windows Update.
Install keyloggers on other accounts.
It's definitely already pretty bad, but it's not necessarily a total loss without a privilege escalation. Without a privilege escalation, the PC may be salvageable. With root, you may as well buy a new computer and restore from backup.
Sure but now you can do it without a UAC prompt. So with this exploit, UAC is now *completely* toothless, rather than only mostly.
Gamers may ask, "why does this random game need root?" It may give an opportunity to notice the exploit. Now there is no such opportunity.
> Although economists argue that all these levies do is push prices up, with the burden falling on buyers rather than sellers
This is bad economics. Yes they push prices up - that's the entire point. Yes the burden falls on buyers, so buyers don't buy the thing as much. If they would still buy it, the price would already have been raised anyways; otherwise you're suggesting the companies have been leaving money on the table. The goal is that it specifically pushes prices up for chinese products. The point isn't to get chinese sellers' money, as that quote would seem to imply, the point is to *prevent* chinese sellers from getting (as much) money.
Sure, sometimes every penny counts and sometimes things have to be cut. And sometimes DigitalOcean terminates your account and your Fortune 500 clients get angry at you.
There is only one standard that matters, and it's business success¹. Generally when you lose all your customer's data, this tends to end any hope of business success rather terminally.
