Many companies this year will be quietly quitting cloud due to the cost and realizing that the cost having your idle resources in the cloud is a big waste of money,

This is why blockchain should be used in all global financial systems so that a coalition of all countries can use it to trace and stop all forms of financial fraud. It's too easy to use bad actors around the globe to launder money but with the blockchain it will ledger all transactions past and future.
It's easy to just use less fossil fuel when the sun is shining during the day. What's the EU production currently at night and how many battery farms are there to meet the night time use demand.
It turns out that Germany wa scrambling to burn coal when they no longer have cheap gas from Russian.
Not sure if anyone has been around long enough to know that high iphone prices in the past was unsustainable. iPhone used to cost a lot more than today when there were shortages and high demand. As it hits a saturation point and with used devices available you could get iPhones at MSRP and used ones below. Now we're getting to that point there are lots of used Teslas and new Teslas are competing with other EVs.
Twitter is just one company, millennials and GenZ have not suffered their first professional mass layoff rounds yet. Any company or society where you don't rule with the iron fist will get out of hand and quickly devolve into chaos. This is demonstrated in every democratic societies of past and present. The US is on the verge of devolving into chaos already.
We need game companies to stay being game companies and not these big companies buy up the entire ecosystems. MS knows that their own dev studios suck and can't turn out quality games. They don't know nor cares about how to be like Nintendo. If nintendo was for sale then M$ would definitely pay the ransom. If Sony or MS swallowed up all of the game IPs there won't be any new quality games. There will be more DLCs.
When EA bought out Maxis for Sims. Look what happened, Sims 3 became this massive DLC money grab and Sim 4 is the same.
US bans China from participating in the International space station and now China is building their own and soon it will build a better space station because the US and it's allies have mismanaged and lagged behind in tech. Everything the US does to slow China does will lead to China building their own and surpassing the US.
Like all MS products and services, they offer you basically free software then your IT mgr doesn't realize MS makes money on servers and services. You can have all the VDI on Azure for free but the real cost is on moving your data and infrastructure. MS will not give license discounts if you build your VDI on AWS or Google. It is basically luring customers over to their Cloud offerings by overcharging if you don't use their cloud services.
It's fud and diversionary doc to tell the world that China is to be blamed for all hacking and espionage information warfare when in fact. The US NSA is the worst offender. That's why the DOJ, NSA all wanted Eric Snowden and Manning to suffer so the secret that the NSA conducts the most hacking and surveillance around the world is discreet.
It's fake news because chips are needed in almost everything today, it's not slowing. It's a return to normal market conditions. Last few years wasn't normal because of shutdowns caused labor and logistics problems now things opening back up the shortages will soon be lessened. Apple still need to make more than 10m iPhones every year and plenty of servers are still bought for datacenters. The only slowdown is caused by purchases when recession really happens then prices will fall.
China has not invaded a single country since the 50s, why do we hate a country that is more peaceful than we are? We don't have to buy Chinese goods but we do and blame China for our own choices. We blame rich chinese people for buying up properties but the sellers benefited. Aren't we the champion of the free marketplace?
Did China made bad stuff we don't want? If so, why keep buying from them and not make stuff here? All these complaints are nothing but propaganda. If China is left without partners they will build without their own tech without international cooperation.
I don't think gig work companies like Uber/Lyft is the problem, the main problem lies that these workers aren't taking jobs that offer employee benefits. The reason why so many help wanted ads because these gigworkers do not want to be tied down and be told set hours like employees. So you can't have regulations that make gigworkers into employees yet still offer the choice or freedom of contractor. That's a paradox.
The solution will be don't create these over-reaching regulations, let these gigworkers suffer. If they want a job with benefits, there are plenty of help wanted signs.
Intel server chip shortages continue to bite: HPE warns of Xeon processor supply drought for the whole of 2020
I was told as early as 2014 that AWS was gonna get the contract outright. There were people in bed with Amazon working for the Feds influencing the decision making without much transparency. If you ever worked at the Feds, nothing there ever makes sense. Their decision making process completely goes against most regulations for bribery. I know competing firms told me they were never given a chance to show their goods and services properly before getting shunned by Fed decision makers. While Trump obviously had an agenda but luckily it's on the right track as Azure makes more sense for the Fed.
Looming US immigration crackdown aims to weed out pre-crime of poverty. And that may be bad news for techie families
Long overdue because our tax base is shrinking. Work participation is dropping and we need to increase productive workforce into the population. We cannot keep bringing freeloaders into the country. You look at all the coastal states, tons of people on welfare. Many illegals working cash jobs like construction and still getting free money from the local government. Tell liberals that if you wanna on-board more poor immigrants be prepared to have their income taxes hiked by another 10-15% and see how that works out.
Ex-Microsoft dev used test account to swipe $10m in tech giant's own store credits, live life of luxury, Feds allege
Every big CIO at a major corp wants to cap storage costs and move them to the cloud. The big storage costs has always been user content such as home drive, emails, downloads, app data etc. With Office 365 + OneDrive, more company wants to move this bottom-less pit over to the cloud and storage freed. The biggest cost imo is the total cost of storage. Your SAN, NAS, backups, and extra redundant hardware. The cloud will wipe away majority of these running cost.
It's getting to the point where I've had it. My powerful home gaming PC fails to update multiple times. I downgraded to Windows 8.1 just to get higher hardware support than Windows 7. I finally had stable Windows updates and not get these updates that bricks my system from booting up requiring boot up repair with Win10. At work I get paid to manage system patches but I'm not risking my home PC to MS patch testing.
