"Cool pizza express gen five up to sixteen lanes coming from the cpu. And then we're going to have four gen four lanes for storage until apparently determined that gen. Five lanes are not necessary for storage. They're probably not wrong. Av x five. Twelve support has been removed. Probably wear some of that better. Ipc is coming from. They're just not spending diarrhea on features that the vast majority of consumers will never touch and tcp of the top end. Ski will be a hundred and twenty five. Watts was this written by anthony. It was because it's got five quotations on either side of one hundred twenty five watts we've gotten to the point where intel. Amd and invidious. Tdp ratings of their chips simply cannot be compared against each other Without just objectively measuring them in the real world intel also detailed their thread detector thread director technology and emc inside the cpu. So this'll monitor each thread. And it's individual metrics memory load store power etcetera and provide data to the os scheduler which will decide where threads should go. That's pretty cool. So processes could initially run on a peace corps unless they're full or unless they're on battery it could tell the os which threads our best to move in on like a thirty microseconds scale Vx prioritized for p. Cores if there are more threads than available p course it will use efficiency course before using hyper threading because those like sky lake grade Even the bad course are still going to be pretty fast compared to Putting two threads on the same cpu core and it can reduce the frequency if the threat is limited elsewhere in order to reduce power. That's pretty cool. That's like actually super cool So per thread intel is expected to be able to outpace. amd's zen three processors amd core count advantage could keep zen three very relevant particularly at the high end. Although that assumes that india does nothing in response and almost certainly will i love intel. Amd being at each other's throats this is the best thing ever actually know the best thing ever would be nvidia and amd being at each other's throats gp but right now it's basically invidia running the entire show and amd being lucky to ship any gp us get an easy pews. Made as far as i can tell they're basically I saw i saw a headline talking. About how invidia prices seemed to have been following a bit but md. Ones weren't and i think a big part of that is just down to how many gpa's amd booked with tsmc kinda that simple You know what we should probably get. Yeah we should get through our sponsor spots the show is brought to you by redux. A thank you build reebok's for sponsoring this video. Redux is apiece builder. That's driving to bring pc gaming to the masses. They have no price markup on the parts themselves. You just pay a seventy five dollar build fee so pick your budget pick your games. See how they're going to perform and then if you're happy with it let them build your pc and you get.

It was called avid and the whole idea was getting sort of like mit students to build your website or harvard. Students write a business plan for you and it failed for many reasons I didn't execute on it. Well it wasn't a great solution to a problem. I mean just a ton of reasons But that did pivot into code undercover. Which was a coding school to get people which basically the idea was. Learn to code by building your own product and people come to us and say hey.

"The district's eligibility in that's based on the districts free and reduced lunch program so the higher out for the students the more discount the district will get getcha gotcha and one thing. I understand because i've had a few conversations over the years. Tom with other members of your team. Their connection about rate and there had been a Again i'll go back to the mid nineties. You'd mentioned as well in this program was kinda revamped in came out to be a it had been cumbersome for folks to try and get through the process and again a lot of this might be administrators and principals and those of the district Trying to go through the process and the funding in the paper and it was cumbersome. My understanding is that got an easier over the years so maybe if someone had tried this you know six seven years ago and just threw their hands up in dismay and said forget it not worth the headache. It's easier these days go through the process. That's my understanding the sec. And in the company they outsource to usak has automated the process which helps a lot. The other thing that helps james is back in two thousand fifteen the fcc announced in a modification to the eerie program in what they did was they changed the funding from going from all the ninety percent districts historically to allow all the districts from ninety percent down to twenty percent to get funding historically what happened from nine hundred ninety six to two thousand fourteen. Is that all the districts that were ninety percent with get all the funding in anybody below. Eighty nine percent never got funded so for years. A lot of district stop requesting funds but in today's environment those districts that are applying targeting funded regardless of the funding rate. And then i can see how that could be so frustrating for those in that you know. Eighty two to fifty range. I mean really anyone. That was Below that cutoff of the ninety. But in that right with those that were there. Were on the cusp I had mentioned that again. A lot of it. It's the principles. That's the admins superintendents. It's the folks that go of through the process of requesting and getting the funding through the e rate program but at the end of the day it is our. It teams on the ground. That are you know putting the gear in place in pulling those wires in installing access points and all. Do you see today. Better coordination between those groups understanding kind of what the program is what the needs are working together to get the best deal again opportunities out program. I talked to superintendents directors of curriculum directors technology and cio's all time in its route truly understanding what the requirement is in your point earlier. No the school districts. Their product is education the product of students in the it department. Their product is enabling that education So it is at hand in hand hand in glove understanding what the requirements are on the instructional side in. Then have it committed..

"Win the playoffs that's coming up six our show tonight a nine seven three and you'll see what we were debating over eagle versus octopus this is one of those things that just it will not die people are starting to take bets of their own in their office they said obviously the octopus will win so text the word show to ninety nine seven three we will send you the candy my can touch up okay so should you buy yourself or someone else what some folks call smart speaker other people call spy devices this we're gonna expert who says it could cost you a lot more than just your privacy shocker narrowed from the ACLU sunken ari and is the director technology liberty project and the ACLU of Washington state and I like to say the guy who freaks me out every time we talk to him welcome to the show shocker how are you I am doing well glad to be back to try to reach you out some more some glad you have a goal in mind so let's talk about first Black Friday shopping biggest item purchased online home assistance things like the ring doorbell cam and all sorts of surveillance tech and just more tech into our homes what do you think about that you know just overall well I think it's a real challenge and I think it reflects where consumers are which is we don't really have a good sense of what's happening to our data once it gets out there and we don't really have a good sense of which devices are actually collecting data but certainly devices like Alexa an echo various kinds of smart home devices big collect data that Dan can be sold to data brokers and used to make decisions about our lives that are bad we just don't know our even happening but are certainly significant do you have any of these devices in your house I do not and don't plan to and don't plan to that was the key here and see I think in our house we all agree on I have two small tiny humans and the rule is you have to ask a real human first before you ask a that's what we say because every time I say the full word it sets off everybody's advice is at the same time on the radio so you have to ask a human first before you ask the home assistant that's the rule in the house but I can see ho if you make a hard fast rule of your of your not getting in those I mean what do you tell people who are thinking about buying one of these yeah I mean I think the first thing to know is that they are always listening it's not as if they suddenly start listening when you say the magic word they are all was recording and the Houston recordings have actually come up in court cases you know for example in divorce cases where people were not aware right that this device in the room was actually making recording and it can be subpoenaed or a court proceeding you know I I would say there's a real question about whether you want to sacrifice your privacy how you feel about everything that you're doing in your house being recorded for me you know I'm a pretty private person that I I don't love the idea of recordings being made all the time and then you know the flipside is we don't have control over what happens with that data you know a good example that that something like this is smart meters in Seattle where you know we have these smart electricity meters that monitor on very granular level how much power you're consuming in your house and it turns out you can actually tell a lot of things about what devices are on it what time whether I cook all my meals on the on on the server in the microwave when I watch TV fourteen hours a day and wouldn't my health maintenance organization like to know about that right that could effect my healthcare premium so that's just one example of the you know how much more granular surveillance is happening that we may not be aware mate may actually be costing us money and other kinds of consequences so it's really cool to have sunk on the show of the kidneys someone is of a more concerted mindset to to find this like this a real agreements and a real distrust from across the spectrum of politically speaking of these devices and for me I'm just looking to make it easy I'm not stupid I know that the iPhone aids and I am no no I'm saying that for me in my judgment I know my I phone is on I can turn the speaker off I can turn voice recognition off I know it's listening okay but I just choose not to make it that easy I'm particularly when and look I'm a beast I am a very consistent supporter of law enforcement's almost across the board sept when they cross over into into unconstitutional territory so I see Amazon building what is a surveillance network that's what it is with rain in the deals are doing with cops it Hey we can get you access or what I should say of cops but to police forces get you access to people's data visit often though without a warrant yeah but that's not but you know and I know people don't read terms of service you know what I know true it is actually it's eventually it's just assume now it's a it's a convenience and they pitch it as a you know Hey we'll get law enforcement to help you real quick your neighborhood safe right so they're gonna pitch it that way then having these things in your home like shocker mentions you know the the so called smart meters we had Puget Sound energy come by this weekend and they're gonna shut our power off because I'm not gonna have a smart and house I'm not gonna pay the fee I'll tell I'll have the smart meter so when they say what your option then well we have a life saving device on the house a life sustaining device so they were able to do so with a life sustaining device in the house so they weren't able to move forward with that that's just my perspective I'm just I'm not gonna make it easy for Amazon to create a surveillance network on my back in conjunction with the government this is not limited to I don't I mean I don't mind people who wants to do that I guess is fine with them I'm mainly I mean I realize that bunch of what I do on line in which but I do on my phone and you know even even anything that I have that's linked up to the web or to the cloud I mean I'm pretty trackable now with surveillance cameras everywhere I mean I don't probably go much of my day without some something that either I'm wearing or something around me tracking me I understand that I agree with you about not making it any easier but I gotta say with these digital assistants why I thought that that was my real objection it really isn't what bothers me is there just a lazy like I can turn on lights and I can get music and I can order my own things and I feel like you're like mystery all of that stuff that it does seems to be like the convenience of me being able to book a hotel room and a vacation online completely maps for me that makes sense the convenience of having something so I don't have to stand up while I'm doing that to go turn on the lights doesn't matter for me it doesn't make any sense it feels to me like all right I am willing to to have certain things made easier it's nice for me especially someone who you know five got a couple of hobbies and the really the only place you could find certain things is online like you can't have you can't drive fourth four cities away or go to another state sometimes so this allows you to travel like that allows you to read all kinds of really great stuff but needing my right now the forty Niners lost when I told him from a run which my phone which I phone which my phone will tell me right in all in in even that is easier than it does.

"Blockbuster movies that have perhaps the worst special effects that you've ever seen in your life that's coming up we'll talk a little bit about big brother which the new season debuted last night well ranked the past winners and talk about the current cast that was unveiled last night and also another edition of no your onion and that's tom will be your host and he will read you a news headline and you have to decide whether it is a real news headline or headline from the onion which of course is a fake satirical newspaper a comedy newspaper and the headlines are not real they are from the onion so but the reason why this game worked so well is because the the real news is so weird now that it could be from the onion strangest gotten in the real world so we'll play no you're unin we'll do two separate contestants and we'll do that at four thirty so make sure you're tuned in for that for no you're right now we aren't talking with rod pile our good buddy good friend he's an author of a practically five hundred books he is editor in chief at ad astra magazine for national space society's speaker and expert on space and we have them on once a month and rod welcome back around thanks you demoted me from ten thousand five hundred ten ten ten thousand five hundred there you go thank you actually be getting some royalties at that point and well a couple of things you you've done since the last time we talked you just got back from the national space society's annual conference before bef- the last time we talked to you it was right before you went to that so tell us about that and and how that went so it was great it was in d._c. just outside d._c. actually pentagon city which is isn't as grim as it sounds kind of a cool share no tell that have view the mall and the white house and all that stuff and we've got about twelve hundred thirteen hundred people this time about five hundred students so increasingly we're getting kids they're a lot of them from overseas a lot of kids india a lot from eastern europe is kind of two big chunks like romania in india and then a number of other europeans nutting men nearly as many american kids we'd like because we want to of course bring in kids from kids young people from here too because you know we want to share the mission to sure all nationalities urges look you guys stem important we need to these fields this is why it's cool this is why there's things happening have the head of nasa they're talking we had a ted ahead of one of their director technology directorates we had one of the early female shuttle astronauts there mean collins who was wonderful fifteen astronaut flight dance play directors all these really cool people speaking and signing books afterwards and chatting with with folks and then doing breakout sessions just for the students so it's really become this kind of multi platform sort of thing i think there was fifty different talks and three or four days that line so there's a lot of you basically it's kinda like a theme park you can kind of pick your ride in that direction sure so it's really rich that way so next time we're in chicago you gotta come oh okay is that what is that the next time you is it going to be next summer no fortunately next year could be a dallas but you walk on when we're coming to chicago probably in the next five years so you know still be young enough to to drink together how long is that how long is the national space science conferences how long has it been going on the organization it was two different organizations both start about seventy four seventy five emerged in the eighties i think the conference in the going since eighty four maybe maybe before that so it's been a long time it's it's kinda gotten bigger and smaller over the years but the last handful years there's been some new blood injected in the running of it and it's just been really spectacular so we're looking forward to dallas next year because we're gonna have the only downside this hotel with kind of small so dallas is going to be huge yeah that'd be that'd be good has it ever been in chicago before it was condo in eighty eight i think and then again since then but i didn't go to the second one i just when which was the years either eighty eight or eighty seven that was the standing in the bar jonathan flakes have been speaker there at the conference he had already left he plays number one star trek next as standing in the bar you know with the gut that i've got but i had a beard and there is a very vague resemblance if you're completely drunk or stone Drunker stone guy comes up viruses. has gone this fine so how is it i guess yeah fine what's up with the captain man pay an episode and i realized that guy was so out of it is where these cook bottom bottle glass and do you think john that break so i started talking i'm up i'm like oh you know patrick stewart greatest guy i mean the greatest really just have that he was really horrified as the things i was saying i'm not sure we ever recovered but that's pretty funny one fan off the boat you know pretty funny man but now where where where was where was this health do you remember the roseland rosemont rosemont yeah up there okay yeah that's where a lot of i host say i'm one of the hosts in a horror film convention every year and of course it's in rosemont because that's where you know there's like eight hundred hotels and it's right by the airport right okay so that's like convention central right exactly absolutely got it that makes sense yeah so you did you did a lot how many of the of the talks were you a part of i did seven presentations and four days which is about four minutes between that and the meetings and various press events and then try to cover some of this stuff i was the total by the end of it but but that's part of the fun of it right you get so serve in the surreal state that you just begin experiencing like a direct injection of heroin or something you're done your remember anything just member had a good time yeah that's kind of way i it's it's it's a three day this horror convention is a three day convention and i do a bunch of q._n._a.'s and and i barely sleep and so yeah by by the sunday that sunday the sunday evening when i get home after that weekend i'm completely i take the week off from work Wow. Yeah. I do I went to a couple of months ago, I went to Norwest which is up Seattle. Yeah. That tickets horror fantasy science fiction, all that stuff. Yeah. So you're, you're surrounded by klingons, nails or whatever else. Oh, yeah. And I was talking to this guy who had been going since the beginning in the late seventies early eighties. And he said, you know what I just knows this year and I said, well, because I had been one of these days to probably nineteen Ninety-three, but he said, the same people are here. nineteen seventy eight just older and grayer head occurred me but it was right you know this whole cadre of people kinda grew up together they're still digging same stop and go to these things and there were young people there but not many you know wonder why why you think that might be because i don't know that crowd why we well graying out i'll tell you what ours is is exclusively horror there's there's not really a lot of fantasy stuff that we do it's mostly just horn and there are a lot of kids who show up at our at our convention but like you said i've been you know this convention has been around since two thousand two and i've been one of the hosts since the first the very first one so i've been doing it for a long time and yes i see the same people every every year and some of the same vendors every year selling their stuff you know and but we do we do get a pretty good amount of younger people and maybe it has to do with maybe you know the horror genre's more peeling to younger people i don't know Yeah. But it's fun scares me a little bit scares.
