Where there's a will, there's Huawei to develop one's own chipmaking kit


Re: Middle finger

You clearly have never been in China…

US charges Chinese nationals with cyber-spying on pretty much everyone for Beijing


Me thinks this is yet again another whole load of the usual anti China BS…

Top LLMs struggle to make accurate legal arguments


Who’s actually talking gibberish here?

Law should be logical and straight. If AI cannot make top legal arguments from current convoluted laws, it’s because many laws (especially tax laws) are neither logical nor straight but instead illogical gibberish produced by a self-serving caste.

Avoiding AI-capable PCs will be impossible by 2027


The transition to AI computers will be similar to that going from horse and cart to the automobile. Think about it, concepts of folders, menus, rights mouse clicks, could become entirely superfluous. I don’t think at this point we can’t even imagine how user interfaces might evolve.

Apple becomes the latest company to ban ChatGPT for internal use


Coders will be fine. It’s bean counters and lawyers that are driving these bans…

Oh, no: The electric cars at CES are getting all emotional


Re: "buttons replaced with touchscreens"

This is particularly bad in right hand drive vehicles where controls have to be operated with the left hand!

On the other hand, the idea in certain countries of placing the driver in the right of the cabin (and drive on the left hand side of the road), considering that 85% to 90% of the population are right handed, was a misguided one…

Crypto craziness craps out – and about time too


Re: About time indeed

You know nothing my friend. Ignorance is not an excuse. Dirty flies exist around bitcoin but honey doesn’t stop being good nevertheless…


Re: Blockchain next..

“Slow to update database”

This statement really proves you know nothing about blockchain databases…


Too many people here commenting on Crypto without even knowing what it is, how it works and how it compares to fiat currencies. But hey, back in the Middle Ages people were burned at the stake for daring to step out the ranks of what was deemed as common knowledge…

Vodafone to move SAP S/4HANA ERP system to Google Cloud


Is cloud infrastructure really secure

I’m not an expert here but is cloud infrastructure really a total panacea?

You've heard of the cost-of-living crisis, now get ready for the cost-of-working crisis


Re: Winter is coming, crank that $H!T UP!

But what about the noise?

Why Marvell bought interconnect upstart Tanzanite


The pendulum swings again

“Marvell envisions a future in which CPU/GPU compute, memory, and storage resources will be disaggregated into individual boxes”

Isn’t disaggregation one of the main features of IBM mainframes?

LAN traffic can be wirelessly sniffed from cables with $30 setup, says researcher


Time to switch to fiber…

Who wants copper anymore.
