‘Lion King’ Sign-Language Interpreter Says He Was Fired Over Race
"There is a Supreme Court ruling back in 1976 that white people could sue under a statute that was that was passed in a law back during the reconstruction era post Civil War. Now that law was intended to protect former slaves, but they believe that this law could also benefit white people who are now being fired for the color of their skin. Mister WAN told the New York Post, hey, this is wrong. This is discrimination. He said, if you insert a different color, if you insert a different race it is wrong, you are not allowed to fire somebody because of that reason. So according to the emails, and by the way, Disney is not commenting on any of this, but according to the email, they said only black sign language interpreters were going to be allowed. That's it. I mean, look, if that's the new rule, on Broadway, that you can only that an actor can an actor has to be the skin color of the character he is portraying, then all I can say is the folks at Hamilton have a great big problem on their hands. I mean, the whole shtick of Hamilton is, you got a bunch of people of color playing our founding fathers, and I hate to break it to you, ladies and gentlemen. But the founding fathers were a bunch of lily white honkies. I'm just saying. Well, there you go. Good luck to you, mister Wayne, and I hope you sue the living daylights out of them. All right,
Is the 'Toy Story' Outrage Real?
"I'm not Sonny, I got a question for you about marketing. I learned this when the arc came out. The Russell Crowe aren't movie, whatever that was called NOAA or whatever. They created a controversy. I mean, they actually and I know that people who did this. They created a controversy. Oh, conservative Christians won't like this movie because of the way that we portray certain elements. And they just made it up, conservative Christians didn't care about them. It was a stinker. And so I think most of that so called controversy about this is made up by Disney to try and get attention to a movie that's just a stinker. Which controversy is that. That there's a same sex kiss, which, you know, basically wouldn't register on my radar to begin with. And I don't think anyone is not going to his thinker movie. It's just that movies are expensive. I took my grandkids to see a movie. I took them to see bad guys, and I loved it. But you know, I was kind of stunned at what it cost to go to the movies with three kids. Yeah. Yeah, no, it's expensive. I mean, there's certainly a ginned up controversy element to a lot of there's a type of marketing that is basically well, you know, some people aren't going to like this. And because those people are bad. You saw the same thing during the Obi-Wan show where there was a supposedly a controversy about some Star Wars fans didn't like it because the lead villain in the show is a black woman. And I mean, I'm sure there's some YouTube comments there somewhere who was complaining about that, but the real problem with that show was that it's just boring.

"Now. How about becoming the legal tender salvador's assumes that party wasn't there already chaos there. Although how boat with sony playstation games showcase that single one of them ahead of time How the matrix resurrections trailer you want. Okay all right so that that really was all we had. Okay fine the show is brought to you today by jumped cloud tax care and of course a fresh books their fresh all right. So let's jump right into apple. The epic three months after the trial concluded yvonne gonzalez. Rogers ruled in favor of apple on most counts. That epic failed to show. That apple was a monopolist that epic breached developer contract. So the fortnight band was there for justified and that epic must pay apple thirty percent of the revenue from epic direct payments that were taken through fortnight on ios. That's approximately twelve million total revenue. So i guess. Thirty percent of that from august to october twenty twenty and then an unknown amount from november to the present but epic did win on one important count third party payment systems. The ruling stated. That apple is not breaking antitrust laws but that they are guilty of anticompetitive behaviour. Which in my opinion is just another way of saying that the antitrust laws need to be updated for the digital age. But that's a whole. That's a separate conversation or that they need to make a new law. That anti-competitive behavior is bad. I mean what does it. It doesn't matter. The point is through a permanent injunction. Apple is now restrained and enjoined from prohibiting developers from including in their apps and their meditate. A buttons oh from including in their apps and their meta data buttons external links or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms. So this has to be in addition in addition to inept purchasing and they are not allowed to prohibit developers from communicating with their customers through points of contact obtained voluntarily from customers through account registration within the app. So basically the way that it worked before for ios apps. Was that unless you had netflix. For example just had a sign in the app did absolutely nothing until you signed in. And you just had to somehow know already booth your giant space brain that you had to go on netflix website. Whether it's on a pc or on your mobile browser create a netflix account pay for it and then you can go sign in in the app so just had to be this like blank wall with no instructions which is obviously a terrible customer experience. So that's the way it works before to to manage to have outside of app store payments. Now what the judge is saying is that apple cannot prevent you from having a button in your app. That basically says okay. Click this to go create an account and pay and then you can go back to the app and use it. It's way less toxic now. Because that's like like i if they don't want you to be able to pay through the app or whatever like that's kinda weird and stuff but at the very least let us communicate that to the user etcetera and previously the answer to that was no and now the answer to that is going to have to be yes which is way better because at least we can tell people what's happening. That was the most frustrating things people would message our support and be like. Yeah try to use your app but like it's really weird. I couldn't do stuff it's like. We know nothing we can do about. It now. seems to think that this isn't a win develop. I was gonna. I was gonna jump in with something real quick here. Now that i don't know is How exactly how exactly this is going to be implemented. So the judge did specify buttons external links or other calls to action. Apple has to allow them. But that doesn't necessarily mean that apple has to allow third party payment services within the app itself so it might only be a link leading outside of the app like in japan south korea. Meanwhile has made it so that apple has to allow in app third party payment services so we don't know what this is going to end up looking like in the us either way. There's at least something you can do here. This is significantly better than what it was in. I'm going to go through tim. Sweeney statement really quickly. Because i want to stay a statement that applies to both things. Tim sweeney said. This isn't a win for developers for for consumers. Epic is fighting competition among inapt payment methods and app stores for a billion consumers. So this isn't. I would say this isn't like winning the war for developers and consumers. This is definitely a win of a battle. This is this is definitely a significant improvement over what we had before. This isn't what tim wants. And this isn't the end goal of what i would want. No no way. Better than what we had. And mr sweeney sweeney overall is is not super happy. I actually read everything. He's tweeted since the The judge issued this ruling and he's overall overall not impressed and in this and we're in a situation now where even though even though even though epa kind of one in terms of now they can just have a button in the fortnight app. That could link you to a website where you could buy v bucks. Tim is still saying. I should say tim. Sweeney because apple also. Has tim cook tim versus tim grudge match tim. Sweeney showdown also probably recognizes that entering payment information separately from what. You've already got set up with touch. Id or face. Id is a significant source of friction. And you hear. The term friction used a lot to talk about Getting customers from the from the awareness end of the sales funnel to the transaction end of the sales funnel and the less friction. You can have along the way the better and we've probably all done it whether it's the friction of you know a tedious Like a tedious. Oh what's the word. I'm looking for those stupid little tedious. Capshaw that you have to do in order to get to the carton. Yeah you know what. I just didn't really need that thing that badly. Anyway or your auto fill for your payment information. Not working you know what. Maybe i'll buy this later and then you never do things like that like amazon. It's also the other end to talk about low low friction. That's that's the entire reason why when you're going through a lot of stores best buys is really funny for this because they basically put you through a maze and that the walls of that maze are little things that don't cost way too much you know but it's very easy for you to just be buying a. Oh yeah could grab one of those. I need some batteries. I could take some chips I could use a new. whatever just cable. Hd my cable whatever they handle those things lying around the end because it's very low friction. Grab those so tim. Sweeney is not happy with the ruling and there's other reasons for him to not be happy. Apple recently rejected epochs request to reinstate its developer account. So that they could relaunch fortnight in south korea where third party payments will soon be required on iowa's and that's obviously the thing that got fortnight banned in the first place. But here's the thing..
China Bans Under-18s From Playing Online Games for More Than an Hour a Day
"The gaming banned for minors in china. Now obviously it's a little bit more complicated but it's also not entirely unexpected this new law supersedes twenty nine thousand nine rules that allowed ninety minutes per day and forbade playing between ten pm and eight. Am with the justification back then being that well kids shouldn't be playing too many video games and they shouldn't be up late such that will affect their schooling. Which is i mean fair enough. But whether that is the rule of the state or the role of the parent is something that i think a lot of people would disagree about The twentieth nineteen measures also limited minors monthly spending on games to a maximum of fifty seven. Which appears to be unchanged. This new policy also enforces a policy requiring game companies to require players. Real names when logging it. I mean imagine. Imagine having imagine giving up your minor data protection laws in order to make sure that those miners who companies are now by law collecting information from are not playing too many video. Games that's That's an interesting double edged sword right there. The press release on state media said it is indisputable that indulging online games effects normal study life and teens physical and mental health. I could see that young. Chinese gamers are lashing out at the new rules. One objection sexual consent. It fourteen at sixty and you can go to work but you have to be eighteen to play games. This is really a joke. Know good observation as well. I don't think. I could have put it better myself now to be clear. There's nothing that the chinese government can do to prevent minor from playing a single player game completely disconnected from the internet. If there was. I'm sure they would be trying to figure out how to do that. In fact my understanding is that functionality. Like that could end up being baked into game platforms like the chinese version of steam. So that if you are playing a single player offline game Could theoretically be enforced. But my understanding is there's no actual enforcement or attempt to enforce any kind of rule like that. This is mostly focused on online

"Speak. So i think if they're smart they will. Just keep making their ludicrous of money. Six hundred million dollars a year or whatever not bother taking on investors by mega yachts for all of their founders. Because that's the kind of freaking money that they're making right now and just relax with the whole investor thing or create a sister site. I mean that was. That was the way that we were planning to address adult content. So there's no reason they couldn't do the same river. Yep then you can use your your adult content platform to get that off the ground and absolutely instead of driving people to like a creator on only fans that safe for work. You could drive creator to this sister. Site i mean since only fans Most of the interactions remember. We started one recently. Most of the interactions are done through the website like just the mobile browser rather than an app because of just prudish app store policies So there's nothing would prevent you from just having that link opening a compl- on a completely different site. You could probably even maintain logging credentials. Luke is that something you could do from the user your privacy users economy. There's some issues there. There's probably not one hundred percent certain. But i'm i'm pretty sure some issues there because it's a different. You have different agreements on both sites that makes sense. I in other men really bad news. Probably just put it that way. Tsmc will be raising their prices by up to twenty percent. This comes courtesy of tom's hardware in the wall. Street journal Yes my friends. That is how mainstream this bad news is getting world's largest chipmaker to raise prices threatening costlier electrons. This is not a threat. this is reality. this is happening. so seven. Nanometer and smaller wafers will increase as much as ten percent while sixteen nanometer and larger nodes will increase by twenty percent for all orders set to be fulfilled starting in december. tsn acquaintance. Yeah go ahead said real like it's it's coming up basically now by the time. If you were hoping that you know the shortage would go away and prices would fall. It looks like by the time that would have any hope of happening whatsoever. The raw prices of the materials will be going up. Although maybe that'll help with the shortage of fewer people can afford to buy anything That's not the solution we want. Also don't think it will because everything's just getting scalped every anyways. Tsmc's end five and end. Seven fabrication was forty nine percent of their thirteen point. Two nine billion in revenue in the second quarter of twenty twenty one while in sixteen and then twenty-eight accounted for twenty five percent of q. to revenue so companies like amd and qualcomm could see increased prices in the near future as well as basic manufacturers like bit main. Tsmc isn't the only one though global foundries pierce mc sec have all increased production prices recently. And you can bet that intel with the investments that they're making a new fabs right now is going to be following suit even as they get into the fabrication business and try to increase competition in that space. And the worst part of this guys. These numbers were quoting you. Ten percent twenty percent. You will be lucky if that's all you see in terms of end sticker price increase because that ain't the way it works. Typically just rough ballpark numbers. Typically for every one percent you increase the basic bill of materials cost of a product. You can expect to see about a two percent increase in the final end product once all of a all the middlemen and stakeholders and packaging and marketing and blah blah blah blah blah. That's kind of your basic guideline for how much you can expect. An increase materials cost to affect the finished product. So that's wrong rough. Because a ten percent increase in the cost of the chip that goes at the heart of your gp means you could probably end up spending. I would say on like a high. Gpa easily another fifty two hundred dollars. Don't underestimate how much this is gonna suck. I think it could be more than that. Use it high end. gp you. i think you'd be more than that for sure. Remember too though that a lot of the cost of a high end. Gpa is in memory as well A lot of the cost is in power rhody. Yes so. I'm talking. Just the chip. Yeah yeah crazy that it's across the board also like we. We saw the gp shortage kind of barely but we saw it kind of showing signs of going away but This i have a feeling is not going to be reversed. I think this is probably here to stay. Yup and the thing is that prices are whatever the market will bear and invidia had for a long time been playing a game of juice quietly increase prices each generation one of the most egregious ones was when the agha six eighty came out. If you guys recall the gti six eighty. It was actually priced very competitively compared to its predecessor. The gt x five. Eighty five eighty. Gt ex. i can't remember when they moved things around but it doesn't matter the six eighty Sounded like a deal compared to the five eighty except for one small detail. That's the six eighty used there. What what what was six eighty maxwell fermi than kepler. I don't remember. the point. Is eight used their next tier down. You didn't even use their largest chip whereas previously eight class. Gps had always used their largest chip so they were effectively. Selling you like a a higher rather than enthusiast and gpu for the same price that the previous generation enthusiast one went for. It wasn't until we got the. I wanna say seven eighty because the higher six six ninety and that was a dual. Gps chip. it wasn't the seven eighty that that a large chip finally made its way into a consumer product and by then they had managed to increase the price compared to the five eighty. So invidia has been playing this game for a long time but this pandemic situation the shortage situation has given them an excuse to just skip a bunch of steps and when things settled down they will settle but i would be very surprised if we ever see another top tier. Gp for six ninety nine seven forty nine. I think. I think those days are over. Do you wanna talk about the next desktop future thing. I want to talk about the apple. Settling their developer class action lawsuit thing because this has huge implications. And i'd like to kick it off. You can run through the topic because this is something. You're a little bit versed in than me. But i want to kick it off by saying to everyone who defended. Apple's behavior and said that apple is not a monopoly in the app store is just Their their playground their rules. This is apple's admission because essentially that you're wrong. Their behavior was bad. And you are actually wrong and you need to go read. go read. Go read about antitrust though read about anti monopoly laws go replace. Because i'm really. I have gotten so many frustrating stupid tweets about this. Every time i talk about it. I just get these. Horrendously bad takes. Apples behavior is bad. it's really bad. And the fact that they're settling this the fact that they're settling this to the tune of one hundred million dollars in a small developer fund. Tells you how bad it is and how badly they want this to go away and not not visit on. This is not. The epic lawsuit knows the epic loss. Okay so luke. Why don't you run us through this okay. So this one's a little weird and i haven't liked fully dove into it because it's not the epic one box in a settlement pending court approval. Apple agrees to a bunch of different terms clarify. That developers can communicate directly with customers about alternative payment options outside of the app. This is very good very happy about that. That's the core thing for us. That's the main thing we're excited about They can ever use contact information gleaned from the app now with permission the whatever they are also establishing. This is the part. That's like a little odd for me. And i haven't so far. Enough into their establishing a one hundred million dollars small developer fund ranging between two hundred fifty bucks to thirty thousand dollars to developers based on their size. Yeah that. I'm not certain like how that's supposed to work. Also it's like not really one hundred million dollars to seventy but we'll get more into that in a moment Also they are going to keep these small business program for three years expand price points. Clarify developers appeal. Rejections commit to develop search and discovery to drive high-quality apps. That one's a little interesting not hunterston certain how that actually ties into the rest of it. But whatever and issue a transparency report about that are rejected and covering developer accounts.

That's right we've got a bunch of new information for you. Also only fans hurts itself in its confusion by banning sexually explicit content starting in october. How did this happen. We're going to dig into it and we're going to talk about some potential solutions for users and creators who are gonna miss that well only fans being like actually is what else we got today. You stole a mine but halo. Infinite won't ship with op massive disappointment or forge large but not quite as large disappointment. Absolutely ridiculous. that's actually like not not stoked on the non-co up not gonna lie. Been look i feel like i am constantly constantly searching for co op. Games and halo has except for. I think once been very consistent about having co up and then just nope also gigabyte response. But i don't know how long that's gonna take. I don't think that's it's pretty funny. Actually gigabytes respond in their previous response. Because they've already responded one. I don't think so. Yeah but it's just funny because they did it again. We'll talk for the role. That intro all points out is already lol. Yeah obviously insane show is brought to you today by build redux dot com el gato featuring their face cam and see sonic all right ladies and gentlemen. I think you guys want us to talk about the only fence situation. So why don't we jump right into that in a massive shock. Okay you know what. Hold on a second before we talk about it. I am going to go to only fans dot com okay. I'm going only dot com. I'm not going to share my screen. Because i don't wanna i don't wanna end up. You know getting my which okay hold on a second. There's there's an sms code. I we do have an account as you guys may or may not know. We had our own only fans for a short period of time. I'm gonna go see if it was sent to the number. That is a number that i can that i can access this a new one. Okay yeah i think i got it okay verify coat okay now. Only wrong code shoot. It didn't since when does copy paste not work out of team. Your team beer called at seven this morning. Seven o'clock in the morning this morning. And what did they wanna know. Von they wanted to know why why we don't subscribe to their subscription was seven thirty in the morning they wanted to know for still using their service and they want your service and if we want their subscription based their subscription based service instead of the one time one that we bought and a one time one my answer to them was. I didn't answer them because my my wife picked up the phone but my answer would have been off. Because i've told you guys not to contact me about this. If i wanted to subscription based team viewer i would buy a subscription based team viewer. I bought the one time team beer. Because that's what i think. Team viewer is worth a one time. A one time fee. I paid them like seven grand or something like that for the number of seats that we have it's perfect. It's exactly what we need it. I never want anything else. Stop talking to me called me freeze. Yeah what you. what are you looking up. I'm trying to actually kind of trying to figure out how only okay so right right right. So only fans is the theory i guess is that they are not strictly a pornographic website right. Because when only when only fans was founded by if i recall correctly a like An adult content mogul when only fans was founded. It was not necessarily targeting just adult content. But what. I'm trying to figure it right now is how to even navigate this website. Okay ams screen sharing now if i go to home. It's just is it just my home. I don't honestly speaking know how to use this website. What are you gonna find anyways. I'm trying to demonstrate. That only fans is going to be fine without sexually explicit content. Luke i want to try to find not sexually explicit content on only fans and i can't even i honestly speaking i cannot even figure out how to use will do. They even have discover ability. You'd have to go from a content creator that that is not based on socially explicit things and get to their page that way right. How would i find one of those. I mean you'd have to. I think find their twitter or their youtube video or whatever it is that they're like discovery. Forget then forget it. Starting in october then only fans will not allow creators to post material sexually explicit content nude photos and videos that comply with only fans policies are still allowed. Only fans will provide more guidance on those new policies at a later date. The company made a statement explaining the decision that basically said. This is a quote effective first of october. Twenty twenty wants. There's not even a ton of notice on this. That's less than two months. Only chance will prohibit the posting of any content containing sexually explicit conduct in order to ensure the long term sustainability of the platform and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators fans. We must evolve. Our content guidelines creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity as long as it is consistent with our acceptable use policy. These changes are to comply with the request of our banking partners and peyot providers who will be sharing more details.

Why don't they just have bigger pockets and they just don't so i have heard that team because they i don't know but i've heard that the manufacturers don't do it because they think they'll sell less because it makes unflattering curves but like given how excited most the ladies that i know about dresses with pockets or like pants with properly functioning pockets or whatever else i feel like he'd sell more. If you just made proper frigging pockets but do you remember. Do you remember that horrible trend in like two thousand one two thousand and two those awful pants that had no back pockets women's pills. They were like the ugliest thing ever. They looked so stupid pants. And my favorite shorts have no back pockets but they have many and large pockets elsewhere. So it doesn't really matter man. how am i gonna. How do i find this okay. That's a lot of pictures of butts on my screen. You know what. I don't need this very much walking. Yeah exactly. i don't need that either. Okay what else we got here is access loved the water bottle but the gold print on the top so faded after two ish years about to get another. Okay it has been a couple of years and what we have found. Is that some users. Have that issue others do not. And it seems like it might have to do with The ph of your finger oils. So just something to consider We don't have the same print. Fading issues with any of the other ones and the print fading issue is not the spread. Just ph of your fingers. What no i say that. I i know i'm just naming said by different color and if you have issues with that you can contact customer support. And they'll help you out. Store are pretty awesome. Though vastra says can confirm back in november twenty twenty. I snagged thirty ninety. Bundle with the p eight fifty gm. Luckily i sold the power supply to someone else for them. Nick also says we updated to a new golden about eighteen months ago that is less prone to fading so there you go nice But but by. Dennis says keep in mind that the power supply fan is often facing down and sparks could literally fly out of the computer onto your carpet. If you have your computer down on the floor that is an excellent excellent point guard storm. Storm says first time catching the show live just started my crews network engineer..

"Check it out. It goes on the water bottle. Also luke is working his way through this but there is going to be a lower price for these spout lid. That should show up if you have previously purchased and lt store water bottle and if you had the water bottle and this led to the car now there is a lower price for it. You just have to buy the water ball at the same time if you have previously purchased water bottle lake. Linux said should be before the end of tonight But also three seven months of all customers have been registered so far. But it's going pretty slowly but i it is. Their customers are being imported and updated that a previously bought the water bottle. And if you're in that lot of people it will automatically discount the sip lead when you go to do it. Please give us until at least tomorrow said. I can't finish this import. Yeah but if you've previously purchased the bottle you should get the district later if you don't get the discount automatically customer support help you. Yeah so it should be five bucks. If you've previously purchased a water bottle may go Thanks store team. All right What else we got for topics today. There's some pretty good stuff i off man. I don't know this is more of a quick one. Facebook is shutting down researchers that are looking into a political ads running on facebook and how facebook is targeting them so facebook does have tools where they have approved researchers that are allowed to look into these things in approved ways so they can see what campaign. Ads are running on the platform. But what they can't see without looking at it from the viewer side. The user side is how they're being served so this was from. I think it was some researchers at new york university. Yep university basically. They created a browser extension that around sixteen thousand people voluntarily installed that was looking at how facebook was serving these ads. Facebook shut down the extension shut down their api access and even terminated their personal accounts because they only do not want third party independent researchers looking at this stuff because they might not like what they find allegedly probably We don't have confirmation of that because facebook doesn't allow parties to audit how they're serving political ads. So that's pretty cool. Thanks facebook. You're awesome this. I mentioned briefly earlier. There's a house. Bill that takes aim at android app. Store competition the open app markets app. Basically validates what epochs been saying. What i've been saying. What apple fan boys Seemed to be pushing back against because they have some kind of weird stockholm syndrome. That i really don't understand. The app store is a monopoly. Basically it's it's like a. It's not quite a monopoly. Yes because the google play also exists. But thank you. Thank you luke. That's just called a duopoly and there are certain things that are fair points. You know apple and google. These are their stores and they're allowed to run them the way that they want. The problem is that when they ran a foul of antitrust law that there are consequences for renting them the way that they want and so it looks like those consequences might finally becoming so what this ultimately ends up looking like for consumers outside of america probably nothing for the time being. Because there's no way apple and google or going to voluntarily roll out changes to Things like The cut that they take from developers or forcing developers to use their payment processor which conveniently includes their thirty percent cut. There's nobody you know movies. I would in other territories voluntarily. So it'll be america only at least for the time being and it'll probably take quite a while. I don't think they're going to expect them to flip a switch automatically but in time in america. The hope is that this would lead to third party app stores. Which would lead to competition for your for your app buying and v buck buying dollars or whatever it is that you buy. Which would intern lead to apple. And google slashing their rates and or being more competitive with respect to allowing multiple payment processors. And all those kinds of things now. If you want to look into why things like duopolies can be really bad. And if you've only heard of a monopoly and how that can be bad and you're like well that's two companies of course there's competition there. There's competition in much more than just two companies as well whenever the space gets small enough and that isn't necessarily one or two things can get really bad. There's a very very good video that. I've referenced on this show before but i didn't know the name of it do now it's called. This is why we can't have nice things by veritas louis. Rothman is the highest comment Under the videos basically saying thank you you planted a seed today about right to repair gonna stop. It's a really good video and it talks about why lightbulbs suck It's really interesting. Yeah it's actually a great video. Basically planned obsolescence is a thing and it's taught in schools which was something that was revealed to me. After the last time we talked about this they have planned obsolescence courses in different schools. It's interesting kind of kind of sickening. Especially when you consider how much waste light. Bulbs have over the decades man in more cool exciting news The sec listing of a graphics processors of the seuss's trademark has an interesting model the rt x. Thirty seventy dash eight g.

"Both that nothing. Nothing about that attempted murder. Therefore it's no big deal. Why is that help me understand this. I wish this is crazy. Apparently gigabyte has responded and basically been like Yeah not a problem Apparently they've adjusted the teacher points from one hundred twenty two hundred fifty percent from from roughly around one hundred and twenty two hundred fifty percent to roughly around one hundred ten two hundred and twenty percent Okay so over the protection. Yeah and that's on both models. As far as i can tell the same thing one hundred twenty roughly two hundred and fifty. Roughly changed two hundred ten. Roughly two hundred and twenty. Roughly they are saying. The testing is the issue. Now i did say that there are ways that you can test a power supply so for example one of the one of the ways that we used to be able to separate the men from the boys back in the in the early days of high-powered graphics cards was a purely twelve volt tests. So you would you would run the power supply up to. It's basically entire rated. Current delivery are up to its entire rated power delivery wattage. You would run the entire thing over the twelve volt rail and lots of power supply struggled with it because they were designed and validated by the manufacturers With some kind of load on five volt and three point three volt because there was other equipment in your power supply that would draw from these rails and so wh- mark of a well-designed power supply. Was that it could deliver basically all of its power on twelve volt without actually drawing from those other rails so you would hook it up in this in this artificial sort of way to power supply testing equipment. Instead of using a computer to test it and reviewers at the time would kind of disclaim these results. They'd say okay. Look a good result. Here is the mark of a well-designed power supply but it's not representative of the real world and if a power supply fails this test. That's fine because your computer will use five volt and three point three volt power anyway But the reason that they tested in that way is that they were trying to look forward to a time when the twelve volt rail was going to become more and more and more and more important so just because the methodology might be what's causing the power supply to blow up. Also there's a lot of anecdotal evidence of these things just blowing up in regular use but just because the methodology might be what causes it to blow up doesn't mean that there isn't a good reason for that and that it wouldn't point to a deficiency in the design or build quality of the power supplies get is also offering exchanges for these units. So that is good. But you're getting one with an overpower protection. Trigger point that is lower which basically just means that it's not gonna deliver as much peak power. I guess which to me doesn't really address the problem. Which is that. These power supplies are failing. I'm not sure. If this is steve or not necessarily but gamers nexus in youtube chat says ll gigabytes response show. They didn't actually understand. Our testing will look closer at it and comment on monday or tuesday. Which is great but also i would bring us back to the games next slide yet. Four minutes and thirty seconds sir. Formats and thirty five seconds into the video. I haven't. i wish. I watched this before the show. This is super interesting. We'll have to watch the whole thing in detail after the show but make sure you set it to two x speed. Half hour is thirty minutes. Long but steve's testing shows fifty percent failure okay so there could be something wrong with the testing methodology. Whatever kind of it new egg reviews show fifty four percent yes. People are going to respond negatively more often than positively. Yeah because if you buy power spy it shows up and it works your decently unlikely to go back and be like yup it functions yet But you're really likely to say something if your power supply freaking explode blows up and shakes out your motherboard. Yes that being said that practically never happened so the fact that it is happening and the fact that fifty four percent of new views are. This negative is astonishing fairly dow. Yeah one hundred. And what the survey data call an is again. I haven't watched the video but like this is rough. We also have a super chat from steve. He says regarding the testing gigabyte misrepresented us and is twisting it. They claim we ran it for extended periods but the failures were actually within two minutes almost every single time. They either didn't understand or pretended they didn't who we are going to be. Relying on monday. Also like god. That's very good. Please reply on monday. I went to new dot. Com typically not dot ca. Because i believe that's where they got these numbers from i typed in power supply and the first two things that came up. Were easy j six hundred. Bq one ten and then see sonic focus gs eight fifty. I'm checking their responses And everything's basically fine. Well yeah there's some issues with like. Do on the on the one. Most people are happy with it and the sea. Sonic one is rated super highly not surprised he's fantastic. And that does not line up with gigabyte responses. So there's something nonstandard right. Two gigabyte ones are blowing. The heck up and the other ones aren't these kinda seemed to have some Initial bloating though a few of them apparently popped just like right out of the box. That's that's in like the last ten reviews. There's like three that Saying they pop. They went they popped off popped off their popping off power. It's not anywhere near not even remotely close to the same percentages as gigabyte precise. Just be very clear if even if we total together the done in eggs on new eggs on new not stars so if we total together the one two and three stars some assuming you're not going to give power play four or five star if it explodes on you. If we total all of that together that equals a percentage of eighteen. Yeah gigabyte ones or fifty four. And i also know that there are some other like some of these one egg ones are like. Oh it showed up which is bad but it's not exploded is a very different thing. Yeah these are angry customers. This is not a good look. The funny thing about it is we preach. Don't cheap out on your power supply right.
"wan" Discussed on The WAN Show Podcast
"Well. When the power supply dies it can very easily cause a surge or spike in voltage. That will damage connected components. So you could lose your mother board. You could lose your cpu these. I mean the power supply is directly connected to every component of your computer and in a in an ironic twist. You could lose the graphics card that you were trying to buy when you got this bundled power supply stephen. His team were lucky enough. The sparks didn't go anywhere and they were not just lucky but they were They were wise to be attentive when they were running. A power supply test so that last one. That's on their security footage. You can actually see. They have unit hooked up to a low tester so they were very wise to be sitting there monitoring it while it was running but you might not be so lucky now. Here's the thing. It is unlikely that in the course of regular use most gaming machines would trip any one of those protections mean most gaming rigs pull only a couple hundred or a few hundred watts under full load except for one small problem. Those power supplies are being actively bundled with some of the only gp us on the planet that could potentially trip those kinds of protection circuits. That's the problem. i mean. Aside from you know trying to move out a bad moving product now to be clear this type of strategy is not a new thing. I remember having a really irate conversation with with an invidia rep. A long time. Ago where i basically went like I was talking about. I was like yeah. We had a great quarter. We moved x number of these. And they're like. I don't want to hear about how many and i forget. Exactly what graphics card it was at the time but it was video was really struggling. I think it was man was a fermi. I mean it must have been in. Video was really struggling during the fermi generation or was it Nan was it to eighty was it. Was it preferring me. Can't remember the point was We were talking about like acts of the anomalies. One of the weird things about it is. They moved pound for pound a ridiculously disproportionate number of high end graphics cards. You know six hundred seven hundred dollar graphics remember when that qualified as top of the line They moved a ridiculously disproportionate number of them in the country. For how many people live here for one thing and for the size of the business that they did overall like they were kind of like a boutique. Pc integrator in that way. And i remember getting this irate. Answer back it's like well. How many whatever the equivalent back then of gt a gt. Ten thirty was well. How many of those if you moved unless you guys can get your numbers up for those. I'm not going to be able to get you any allocation of the good stuff. So what the point. I'm trying to make is that. This is extremely common for brands and retailers to bundle together hot moving items and other items whether it's something that is overpriced and so you're trying to mask the overpriced nece on one thing with a discount on another thing whether it is undesirable hopefully not whether it's dangerous so yeah usually overpriced or otherwise undesirable. Oh yeah and the last reason that you might try to bundle. Things is because you're trying to hit some kind of quota so the way the md programs work for companies. Like in videos. If i recall correctly didn't work this way at least for us. But i know for a fact that intel's did The way it worked was you had certain quotas that you were supposed to hit for certain either skews or Or product segments so k. for example At ncis if we sold a you know a twenty six hundred we were like we made six dollars but if we also the twenty six hundred k. All of a sudden we made six dollars but also it contributed towards our quota that we had to hit to get our mdf for our marketing funding that we could spend on activities like and see i xe tech tips and by spend what i mean is. It's money that you get allocated on the back end from intel and you put it towards approved marketing exercises that you then pay yourself for out of that pool. It's very common and before before the chat blows up. No it's not exclusive to intel. Amd has basically the exact same program. Don't kid yourself microsoft program excellent as well So that was. That's how you actually make money if you're ever wondering why you go into the mom and pop computer store on main street. Or whatever and their prices suck and they have no stock in no selection. Well that's why because if you don't hit a certain type of volume you're just you're not a player and you're not gonna make any money because all you get is the up front profit. You don't get the back end that actually drives profitability in this business So this practice is not uncommon but to do it with an item that is unsafe would demonstrate either abominable ignorance on the part of new egg and gigabyte or at worst malice because selling a product bundled with a product. That is the most likely thing i can think of to make it fail in the way that would be very bad is terrible with that. Said there are certain manners in which a power supply can be loaded that are extremely unlikely to occur in the real world so the odds are if you have one of these power supplies it's not gonna blow up immediately but the question becomes. Do you really wanna roll that. Die and for me. The answer is no and the pun was definitely intended. Get it role that die because it could light a fire and you could die. Luke's not listening. But it was a very funny joke and he would have laughed if he'd been paying attention. I'm looking into something ridiculous Apparently at at six twenty nine in the video and i had to reaffirm this a bunch of times. And the reason why. I wasn't listening to you right. There was besides listening to it. But these extremely unstable power supplies it's bundled with if one of them pops and you want to remain it. You have to send in your graphics card as well really do. They're sending you something. They pretty much know is going to become garbage because like over. Fifty percent of the feedback for the graphics card on on new eggs website. Is people having failures. It's fifty four percent of new reviews. Is people talking about failures. Apparently it pops like sixty percent load. They're just ridiculous. They know it's going to die and when it dies you just have to keep your garbage or you have to send your graphics card back. Wow this is like what the heck that would indicate that sounds like fraud that they're very well aware of what was going on. Which is i believe this is like a previously standing thing like all bundled things happy returned together no matter what so that if it's army of one of them was a policy at nci axe but only if you were returning the item not if the item was actually faulty saying for replacement that was never the policy that you had to return both items. So that's what. I was kind of asking the chat is like if you're if you're a returning it for replacement is still the case. But can i can i. Can i hit you with a hot take. Can i hit you with luke. Yeah okay here's my hot. Take okay why is the penalty for attempted murder any less than the penalty for murder I'll tell you why people who suck less. Well that's exactly it just because you suck it murdering someone doesn't mean you're not a complete this. This seems just super illegal for a bunch of reasons. Here's the problem. Here's the problem something here because of the way and this is you feel free to correct me if i'm wrong as far as i know because of the way the law works until someone's house actually blows down a blows down until someone's house actually burns down and they suffer any kind of actual material harm. There's no real practical way to go after them for it. That is my understanding. Like if you were to try to class action the of new egging gigabyte over this basically. You would have to demonstrate some kind of of material harm. And so the most you could possibly hope to get is some kind of compensation for your dead motherboard or cpu or graphics card or whatever else which new eggen gigabyte conveniently make sure won't be an issue because they take your graphics card back when you report that there's an issue with the power supply so you've you've been refunded for it you've been you've been compensated but to me i look at it and i go well. We will hold on a second. What about what about the risk. What about the risk. That i never would have signed up for if i had known about this in the first place..

Cpu running games with an art. Thirty sixty with ray tracing and deal assess and they build that is pretty cool ran wolfenstein young blood and the bistro on immediate tech compagno. Twelve hundred arm processor bob. The faa faa thanks. It's many years out but it is pretty amazing to see that running today. Nvidia said the performance and energy efficiency within video. Technology will open an entirely new classic. Pc's all sort of. I mean that classic pc's already exists. It's called the nintendo switch which is just a locked down pc You know in the same way. That an nvidia shield is also a locked down. pc so yeah it's kind of already exists but running a mainstream game will actually no. We've kind of seen that to remember. Wow i totally forgot about it. Remember and videos whole like game on shield push remember how there was like was. It was half life two for shield. I completely forgot about this. This is from twenty. Fourteen invidia had a whole thing where they were pushing game developers to port. Their games to run natively on shield. Okay so this is not new. It's not news it's just Knew that it's happening again and probably happening for real this time because arm has got a lot more momentum outside of portable hand held devices than it did seven years ago. Cool another on the. Oh i alex said my thoughts. Although this is awesome the intech engine seems to be incredibly flexible so they could be as much to thank for this as Invidia and media attack because they're amazing So yeah that that's very fair.

Patch to the lennox colonel to bring support for the rx sixty seven hundred t on a risk by cpu from scifi. Apparently it only took about ten hours of coding to get it to work But to be clear that okay Rene was not running three games like wolfenstein young blood but rather just getting it working at all. i'm pretty stoked about. Oh alex even has a note. I don't know why. But i'm more stoked about this news. Probably because i'm just a risk five fan boy. Risk fighter is so exciting for the future. Like really really exciting. It's it's very open and it's moving really fast. It feels like probably for the general consumer that a year or two years will go by before you see any kind of significant news. But it's happening. It's happening fast and furious back in behind the scenes like it's it's really cool and it has pretty much. We hope all the benefits of something like arm but kind of like you know how arm doesn't carry a bunch of legacy nonsense that x eighty six has to deal with risk. Five is all about cutting out all of that fat. No legacy nonsense. Extremely lightweight extremely efficient. I'm i'm super super excited for the future of of risk five and i guess that's pretty much got ten ten nanometer fast last twelfths gencor benchmarks over twenty percent faster than reisen fifty nine fifty x according to anthony's link here to some leak benchmarks. So that's that's pretty exciting intel. Md leapfrogging each other love account. We see it. But i don't think i'm going to say too much more about that because we're just gonna wait for finished hardware at this point. It looks like we're getting pretty close. Which is extremely exciting.

I would actually go for. Sony's a ninety. Jay eighty three inch. That would be my preference. This thing is fricking sick. It's it's don't quote me on this. Because i'm not a tv content specialist but to my my understanding is that this is the best tv on the market right now. It hasn't problems. I don't think variable refresh rate is working yet but given that the sony and they like kind of casually make the playstation five which is going to probably have to support like variable refresh rate. At some point. I would imagine they are going to get it working at some point so i would. I would never recommend somebody else. Make that investment. But for myself i will confidently make that investment hoping that sony will will come through with me So is this whole thing. Set up to try to get approved to buy a ninety jay. No no no.

So i'm saying ten videos. I see as a minimum to try to convince other people.

That's i think ten thousand knit peak. Brightness are something ridiculous like that That might be pretty cool. I think that one will run you around. I wanna say No actually don't know. I was gonna say fifty grand but that does not appear to be correct because they have a five thousand nip peak brightness model that is eighty five grand. Okay so luke. Can you at least get on board with this. If i was going to buy a crazy display. I should get a the wall rather than this projector. Because projectors are like never aligned perfectly and the wall was aligned perfectly. So are the panels individually addressable. No i don't believe so. My understanding is the whole thing acts as a single display. So that's where that controller head comes in and then it has those optical links to all of the individual panels that are going to have that awareness of where they're installed so you have a single hdmi input Carrying all of your content and then it's just spread over all the panels and my understanding is supposed to be basically seamless but from meinen james's experience on show floors and stuff like that. You can kind of see it. But i'm hoping that that's something that they've improved for this particular generation and even with previous ones. It was like you had to kind of work at it. When you're not trying to see it you know like if you're trying to see it you can find a seam but if you're not really trying to see it and you're just like watching what's on the thing you don't you don't really notice it from my experience.

"A prostitute to cure his bad mood Former senior creative director for the company. Alex afrasiab. I hope i said the right. He has an npr in game. By the way that people have been running up to in the last couple days spitting on which is highly entertaining He did the department said that he was permitted to engage in blatant sexual harassment with little to no repercussions That included hitting on female employees telling them he wanted to marry them putting his arms around them to the point where other male employees had to pull him off of other fellow. Female louise All this again allegedly. But we'll see where this goes. The company also fired back at st allegations that it's toxic culture even drove one few employees to suicide while on a business trip due to a sexual relationship if she'd been having with her male superior according to the soups at holiday party before her death The women's male co workers allegedly passed around a photo of her vagina according to the suit following her death. Police reportedly found that her unnamed male supervisor that again she was on the trip with where she killed herself. had brought a butt plug in lubricant on the business. Trip lizard has said that they are sickened by reprehensible conduct of the h. To drag into the complaint. Hold on a second i you know i think. That's a typo. I'm sure that the statement was we are sickened by the reprehensible conduct of our employees. No that's what it said right. Nope are you sure. Yup because it seems like that's probably what the statement should say right. Yes okay well here. Why don't you try this again. Read the statement. This time luke we are sick and by the reprehensible conduct of the h. No no hold on. The those are the ones that are are trying to fix the culture there and make it a safe place to work. Yup okay so can you please try one more time to actually get the statement right. Thanks luke we are sickened by the reprehensible conduct of the dia to drag into the complaints. The tragic suicide of an employee whose passing has no bearing whatsoever on this case and with no regard to her grieving family Did they really just play. That card just happened. Just absolutely infuriating like i. Just oh man. I it would be. I mean it would be fantastic if this was brought to court and everything was all okay and stuff but i mean there's a lot of dirt and there's a lot of people like this happens all the time right either one person steps forward with a really strong foot or in this case the government of california steps forward with a really strong foot And that inspires a lot of other people to stand up and speak right and that's happening right now. There's tons of people standing up and speaking and sometimes like not. Every claim is true. Right a lot of this is allegedly but there is so much dirt here that i find it very unlikely that a very significant amount of this is not legit. I mean there's a famous saying where there's smoke bears fire. Yeah and when you've got a little bit of smoke you might have a really small fire when you've got a lot of smoke the odds that the fire is pretty big They they increase a fair bit. Yeah i mean. There's there's been two internal responses and this is. This is actually very interesting to me. They're far too long to actually go into But it's it's interesting looking at both of them. One of them is from jalen brac He's the president of blizzard specifically and the other one is from fran townsend. He's an executive for activision blizzard. And he was the security advisor to the bush. Administration from hundred hasn't seven jail. Brax response is his pretty straightforward. He's been talking about how there's been a lot of emotions and he's looking into the case specifically as it goes without saying it's completely unacceptable that anyone at the company faces discrimination and harassment. It goes without saying that everyone should feel safe to work here. It goes without saying that it takes courage to come forward stuff like that. There's there's that response where he talks about. How like companies more than illegal contracts in like yep the leadership and i feel angry sad in a host of other emotions. I feel love of blah blah blah. He's like hung me. Yeah i guess he's trying to be empathetic. The other one goes as the executive sponsor of the ab k. m. employees women's network and our chief compliance officer wanted to reach out to you And where's the statements here. Sorry i know this has been difficult for many of us. Recently filed lawsuit presented a distorted untrue picture of our company including factually incorrect old and out of context stories some from more than a decade ago. So the thing is And i've had this conversation a number of times in my life. I am all about forgiven. Forget i'm all about moving. Pass things You know there. There are definitely people that i interact with and that i have relationships with that i feel have harmed me in the past but i was able to move past them because at some point they made immense in such a way that i not they i felt was appropriate so the thing is the fact that something is old the fact that something happened a long time ago does not actually make it in any way more okay than if it happened yesterday if it happened ten years ago but you never did anything about. It never apologized. Never made amends on the victims terms. Then it's not old it's fresh. It might have scars on it but the wound is absolutely not healed. You get you kinda. Get get what i mean. So if things are factually incorrect okay. You know sure. Let's talk about that but if something is old that does not inherently mean that. It's not horrible. Still and out of context I don't know i mean really anything. Luke was talking about I can't think of a context where cube crawl makes any sense for like a safe work workspace. Because the thing you got to understand. Is that a safe word. Space is not defined as safe for the people who are like chill with it. it's defined as safe for the people who that behavior makes them feel unsafe. I had a really really funny conversation. I'm going to keep it anonymous. Luke will know who i'm talking about. I'd really funny conversation about this Media company whose studio. I was visiting who had only recently Banned people from bringing their dogs to office with them all day and i kind.

I'm going to butcher this name but i'm going to try. Vladimir kabosh schick was working at microsoft redmond office testing e commerce infrastructure. I twenty six years. I don't know why this matters key quickly discovered a flaw in the system That he then excellent did he did not report it. You exploit it. He started small. He started off with ten to one hundred dollar codes. He didn't generate really all that many but he was. He was scalping them who selling them two years later only two years later he generated over one hundred fifty two thousand zip codes at evaluation of ten point one million dollars. He flipped those cards For bitcoin and bitcoin for cash and was very quickly living on a seven figure. Lakefront home. i don't know how you could possibly think you weren't going to get caught for that Man suspects just like after a while of not getting caught. He just thinks he's invincible. And then buys a seven figure lakefront. Home i go. I mean you. Chris right hubris nine years in prison for gift card theft. I mean it was ten million dollars of fast. Effectively stole ten million dollars. Yeah that is crazy. Apparently he was responsible. I don't see where this is. Yeah he flips so many cards one hundred fifty thousand cards that were generated or thin- right so he was responsible for global fluctuations in the price of xbox gift cards on reseller markets because he flooded them so all absolutely crazy. That's that is un- freakin real man. Oh what can you do about it. Though right i yeah i mean the second goes into bitcoin. It's it's It's a little difficult to track. I do wonder how exactly he was caught. I don't know if like one of his fellow. Employees comes and visits his home and his like. How'd you get this. But yeah pretty crazy ridiculous. All right i am getting a call from the wife. So i think i'm going to have to go soon. But why don't we try and get through a couple more topics here. Intel and apple are going to be the first to get three nanometer from. Tsmc are they're both lined up as the first customers for the new process which will be referred to as end three and we'll do deployed in late twenty two. It'll offer a ten to fifteen percent performance increase at the same power transistor count a thirty percent power reduction at the same clocks in complexity as well as seventy and twenty percent gains in logic density and ashram density respectively. According to mckay report. Both companies are already testing their tip designs that are being produced using the entry process and it also states intel's apparently preparing at least two products to be made with the process one for notebooks and one for servers. It's possible these will only be more niche products as opposed to intel's mainstream consumer products. But only time will tell apple. Be using and three on an sec in late. Twenty twenty two or early twenty twenty three in the ipad and apparently that will be a new processor Versus the current m one which kind of makes sense. Because i'm one we'll have had. Oh it'll be two years at least two years old by that time. We know that until we'll be outsourcing some ataman zeon based tsmc. So it's a safe bet that these are among those products fascinating. I have one more quick thing to announce on lt store. Do we have a new product. Oh yeah reflective heat sink shirt is here ladies and gentlemen look at this fantastic modeling team. We've got that's right. It's reflective has a reflective lt logo on the back later. This guy this girl this guy look at this other guy. Hey and you can get them now for nine hundred ninety nine also. We have brought back mystery shirts. They're twelve ninety nine and they're a mystery. A lot of them are going to be older and less popular ones or ones that are we only had oddball sizes left and good stuff like that. So hey there you go there a mystery but they're cheaper and i think that's pretty much for the show. I think. I gotta go. Ladies and gentlemen so i'll just do a couple of super chats here. Oh my goodness there's quite a few. But at least. I managed to click the tab so they didn't tell go away Adrian frick recommends a game. The messenger not looking for more games right now though.

"Oh i i'm there's going to be a lot of content coming over the next little bit here guys because the place is is going to need a real tech makeover. I don't think i'm gonna do all of the stuff myself this time. Though i spent. I mean it took me ten years to get my current house to the state where i'm really happy with the technology situation with my server closet with my wifi access points everywhere. I need them to be. Everything's hard cast say like this place is perfect. I've got all of my base stations. My lighthouses for my vr. And the living room all wired up through the ceiling so none of the cables running down the wall or anything like that but it took me. It's not often. I get home at the end of the day after work. And i feel like crawling around in my crawlspace. You know what i mean like. I think i'm i think i'm going to let a professional come in and do the cat six say this time instead of doing it myself. A bunch of people in clench our asking for moving logs. I i. I guess you can speak to this. I don't suspect there will be moving blogs but but no like what you just said. I'm sure there will be like tech upgrade. There will be content around the house anyways so the people are asking to see the mechanical room so like the the boiler and furnace stuff so it doesn't have a furnace. It has in floor radiant heat which is sweet and get this. I don't even have to hire someone to do. The check of it because jake got flair to send us that lake thirty thousand dollars thermal camera. So i'm just do it myself so you just turn up across the whole house and then you just walk around with your thermal camera and make sure that there's no dead spots pretty cool anyway. Here's the mechanical room is crazy. It's huge this room really is as big as it looks. And the reason for it is that they had intended to put in a pool and they never did it and they had wanted all the pool equipment in this room and it never went in so it doesn't have a continuous water heater. Like we put in our current house but it does have to hot water tanks so you should basically never run out. Which i thought was pretty funny. That is a very nineties. Continuous heaters don't exist yet or they are too expensive solution to that and there is absolutely no ethernet in this place whatsoever. So i'm going to need that Tell us says fiber is available to the address though so. That's good someone in chat said. Where's loops room. And then someone responded. This looks like luke's room. Nice here this can be. This can be luke's for him j. k. This is the master bedroom pretty simple. You know a lot of the places we went and looked at had crazy master bedroom's like there's weird sitting area in like i'm kind of sitting here going who sits in their bedroom. That is so weird or they would have like a balcony that opens out in front of the house. And i'm sitting here going. They'd have like a and it would be staged by the realtor whatever and they would have a little. They'd have a little table for sitting and having tea or i'm sitting here going. Who would your room. Yeah why would you do that room unless you have like literally a servant but like that's you know because it's always it's always places where you would see this stuff that are enormous right and have a gorgeous backyard and patio. So i'm sitting going. Why on earth would i be sitting here sitting on the front of the top of the front of my house when i could just be in my backyard where i have privacy to observe the de sack or wherever it is yeah or whatever i need to observe every car that drives down my street perfectly. I think that's pretty much it for the pictures that i can show without showing any of the exterior. And that's my goal is to not show the exterior of this house at all something that we something that we did to make things a little bit more challenging is a thing. I'm just actually not gonna talk about just to make my life my life easier so i get to go pick up the keys in twenty minutes which means we better get through some more tech topics. Otherwise we're going to have had a one topic show so thanks for. Thanks for looking at house. Pictures of people are asking all kinds of things here. It's so obvious. You don't have servants says new pastor ninety six yes i do not have serpents. Yes it has air conditioning. I actually like the air conditioning at my current place better. Not just because i i did it. But because it's It's room by room at our current place because we did it with mini splits whereas the new place. It's just one big unit. So you're gonna you're gonna have rooms that are hotter and you're gonna have that are not as hot and that just is kind of annoying. Someone says it looks like the roof needs to be redone. The roof does need to be redone. It's going to cost like one hundred grand or something like that. Were put it. We're putting in solar though and stuff cool. There's we're going like super sustainable like forever power walls. I don't think powerballs here yet. They're solar roofing stuff isn't here yet so i don't know i haven't actually looked into that pick topic topic.

"It looks like they're using their own controller which seems probably unnecessary Although there's another note that says it looks like it's a ps five controller. No kind of looks like one but it doesn't look like it is. Oh yeah that almost looks more like a a we pro controller to me kind of looks like the steering yoke can pipe in and say boost during yoke by the way. Yeah that weird. Yeah we're not an f one car. Yup if you drink bigger turns in that pretty annoying. But they're boasting five level performance chairs The model s. plaid costs one hundred. Twenty three thousand. Us dollars deliveries expected in august for us Residents and and yeah. There's some suggestions from a plu put in this topic. Mine crypto on your tesla to help pay it off is there is there. Crypto mining apps for cars is that i don't know wouldn't surprise me i the kfc console the console. What's next thanks. Plouffe aright windows ten windows. Ten is being sorry quick question. Would you game on this if you if you're parked somewhere and you had to wait. I don't even necessarily know why. But you were wearing you honestly. Compared to driving on the road that probably takes extremely minimal battery. So let's even say you're charging at a you during a road trip charging at a super charger within playing video games. You've one hundred twenty three thousand dollars a thousand dollar car. Would you be gaming. hold on a second. I think that's a harmful stereotype that like actual adults who have nice cars. Don't game i think gaming's for everyone these days i think left that lousy okay. I do agree with that. Anyone can be a game breaking. Oh sure for me. It seems you have this extremely baller car. You want game really badly. You can probably have switch or a laptop or something so but okay. Okay okay okay. You know what. I'm going to play devil's advocate. Why should i take. Which with me the game console in the car. you'd rather i to switch emulator. That's powerful enough for that. What's up now. I think are switching emulators. Okay anyways different. They're not very good yet but yes they do. Exist yeah The screen is the thing that i would complain about really. Yeah really weird format screen. It's a little weird. Yeah seated facing forward and it's like over here so you're this baller one hundred twenty three thousand. I believe your one hundred twenty three thousand dollar at starting and you're gonna sit in your car which you've probably been in for a very long time at this point and probably be anywhere else not because the car is uncomfortable necessarily just this use case basically requires a break on a road trip So you're sitting in your car for extended period of time like crank overturn a play a game on the middle screen like really i. Don't i don't know okay. What about save is probably stuck in the car. So you'd have to play the entire cyrus. No there's no way there's no way it's gotta to be cloud save. There's no way through what is going to work through the platform. So did they gotta be. It's gotta be through steelers. They have steam running on a car. There's no way this isn't through steam. It's gotta be and and i alternate okay. Alternate take on that. Let's say let's say theoretically you've got a friend now. You could sit and play like street fighter. Let's say you both have a controller. He's coming around to it. It's more interesting. It's coming around to it interesting. But i'd just both have switch for me for me. The issue is not one of. Could i foresee a situation where that might not. It might be entertaining. I could foresee a situation where it would be entertaining to have that there for me what it comes down. Oh this is a really good one from speed free full planes sitting in a ferry lineup yup sold. There's definitely situations where you might want to where you might want to have have a play video game for me and maybe this is just me being you know boomer right for me when i am out when i'm out and about i'm not sitting here thinking you know i'm gonna. I'm gonna play like a story driven like a pc game and there's lots of casual games now. So i mean thinking about it. That way is kind of ridiculous. I could play some spelunky. Well i'm just sitting board at the ferry but for me. It's just i'm in. I'm in the car. I'm sitting in a car and in a mindset. Where like i'm holding a hand held and i think you probably feel the same way and the thing is even though. I often keep my switch in my car. It often sits in my car. I basically never use it. Because when i'm sitting board i'm for twenty minutes. I'm usually on my phone. I'm on twitter. Or i'm reading youtube comments or i'm reading the news and so i think that yes it's a it's a. I'm not saying it shouldn't exist. I'm not like trying to be a downer like if someone finds a way to have fun with this. That's great. I just have a feeling like the customer for this car. If you're spending that much freaking money because that's a lotta money. It's a lot of spending that much money on a car. You probably have the disposable income to have some form of entertainment. That's going to be better than gaming on your center console or maybe not i mean having a maybe like that is i mean it certainly now. I would actually be really interested in it. If i was allowed to plug in whatever i wanted if i could just plug in my playstation or xbox or use it as as my swoosh yeah and just use it as a target. That'd be wheat. Like imagine that partnership between tesla and microsoft or tesla and sony. So that you could just use like an outlet in the car to run your console and just plug into it. That's what it would've rather they had done but if they're gonna have the gp horsepower anyway in it then. I i think it sensible enough to just let you run proton and run some unassuming lennox based. I actually don't know that. For a fact i'm assuming space though so why wouldn't they just let your proton let your on some games on it right. Yeah having the features. Completely fine i just i just don't see who's gonna use now. I inside of a pure rock curiosity one time type of deal now. I seven sixty nine sixty nine in the floatplane chat. Says i think the idea that because you have expensive item a you must have expensive items b. c. and d. is nonsense and under most circumstances. I would agree with you because i think that we're at a stage. Now where a person with a median income in north america can probably afford one of any pretty darn nice thing that they would want so just because someone has a really nice tv. Maybe they're a cinema buff and they don't even they they sit on the world's crappiest couch but for them image qualities everything. They've got a really nice tv southbound or something like that but not comfort. Yeah or they live in a small place or they don't drive a nice car. Whatever whatever like you could kind of afford a nice one of the most anything if you're at a median income individual and you're not living in a super super expensive area where housing is ridiculous. But i would say that in this case. I think luke's rationale is justified. Because we're not talking about something that costs.
An Update on The Trial of Brice Rhodes
"We have three individuals in custody three being charged with murder and the police are hoping that one of them will turn on the others and talk now under question captain. Bryce roads denied any knowledge of what had happened to larry maurice. He did tell cops after talking to them for several hours quote. I need a lawyer man. If you're going to keep all in my face now taylor. The other individual in custody also initially refused to talk and tell detectives what he knew so police are going to turn to this antoine carter the youngest of the three and he decides to help out do the right thing and he tells police. Exactly what happened to maurice. And larry ann wan said that on the night of may twenty-first leading into the twenty second he and bryce roads and the two brothers and jacoby taylor were all hanging out at prices. Rhodes place now remember captain. I said that it was important that bryce roads mom said she was out of town when whatever went down went down ray price as successful and famous rapper guy that he claims to be in. The neighborhood lives at home with mommy. Of course that's because he's spending too much money at the job every stomachs right. So taylor in maurice get into a fight at prices place this is. What's being told to police that. Marie pulled out a knife. Bryce roads hit murray's and took the knife away then an also maintained that larry and maurice had stolen some money from bryce roads. This all these actions leading up to their murder. Now i want to be perfectly clear here captain because it's not clear to me. How much of this is true right. There was an altercation that these two boys stole from bryce roads while since chance at none of that's true but also makes it seem like they pulled a knife and then bryce took the knife away therefore it being some kind of act of self-defence right right because the rest of what an would tell. The police is basically what you mentioned on yesterday. Show that bryce roads afraid that he's going to be implicated for murder by these two young box the he decides the best way to get them not to talk to shut them up permanently and kill
AMD's New CPU Socket Just Leaked
"Man. Do you remember when it was intel. Cpu launches were exciting. Yeah you also remember when. Cps weren't like absolute massive chagas. I was actually expecting you to say no. Because it's been a while why i mean that's true. It's such a weird flip. Remember the twenty six hundred k. Okay like if you if you look back it when you and i started working together which was old longtime over ten years now we we have flipped from all intel news to all. Amd news base basically. It's been such a long time. You think that at least some point in their it would essentially be a time where it was like really notably both and we had a little bit of that. Crossover here there. But it's pretty much just been all intel news or all. Amd news really weird. Yeah we're in the amd era and this is according to a leak from executed fix. Who apparently has a pretty good track record with. Amd leaks that the upcoming amd am five socket will be lga seventeen eighteen. So this'll be similar to most intel and all of amd's threader processors in that instead of using pins on the bottom of the cpu and then little holes in the socket on the motherboard going to use pads on the cpu and then a landlord array of pins in the motherboard itself. So we've actually got a display. Capture this images from at you fix. Cbs's ono now. I've moved other things. That's okay there. We go supposedly this is what.

They're going to have four thunderbolt ports. Hd my and an st card slot meant having hdmi back. How freaking awesome. Is that going to be for all the people that don't have hdmi on their laptop already. Like what an upgrade. I actually ran a dell. Xps thirteen to one as a daily driver for almost a year. I think and that was the thing that drove me most crazy. I thought it was going to be usb like a usb type and from time to time that was pretty obnoxious because my ubt is the taipei and i do like to use a mouse. If i'm actually sitting in doing something for a while at the computer. I don't really prefer wireless mice bluetooth. I find noticeably noticeably. Leg man i just love to see an industry standard for something like logitech slate. Speed properly tried light speed kills really well. Yeah but i mean you need a dongle. They're all taipei. So basically you're stuck with a dog goal no matter what if you want to plug a decent mouse into your laptop. But that wasn't the one that drove me crazy. The one that drove me most crazy most often was not having hdmi. Because you never know if you're going to be somewhere doing something
Intel: Core i5 Will Beat Ryzen 9
"Why don't we jump right into our first topic of the day yesterday. Intel announced their core. I nine eleven nine. Eighty eight k Let's dissect that That processor code a little bit here. So it's an i nine which means the top of their stack. It's got an eleven which means it is eleventh jen. It has a k. in it which means it overclock. -able it is h which means that is part of their h series so those are high-powered mobile chips and it has a nine hundred eighty in it which means it's faster than Something with a lower number like really good wine pairing to a nine hundred. Ti they call it the world's best gaming laptop processor and it's based on their ten meters superfan process and as eight course with a max frequency of five jigger hurts intel promises nineteen percent generation over generation multi threaded improvement. Which i believe could actually see coming. And i expressed gen four makes an appearance. Apparently this really fast with intel including these graphs.
AMD Is NOT Ripping off Intel
"Topic. I can't remember what it is Yes amd is not ripping off intel. Allow me to explain. It would be easy to say. Oh hey wait. Hold on a second i mean. Amd's releasing a hybrid cpu. That just sounds a lot like intel alder lake which is the codename for their twelve generation courses processors which are going to use the us high performance golden cove course alongside power saving grace mont course with the idea being that you get performance when you need it and power saving when you don't but in fact intel is not the first one to have that idea and there's a whole lot else going on with their zen five architecture that has really nothing to do with what intel's doing so first things first then five will apparently be based on. Tsm's threes n three process. Node which i think they. They're just kinda changing up the nomenclature on us. I actually didn't know that they call them. Okay maybe they're not because they're referring to their seven nanometers and seven so. I've just never heard that branding for it before. Go figure so. Their entry process node is to full nodes away from current seven nanometer node with tsmc and has claimed to be one point seven times as dense as five nanometer which is itself one point eight times as dense as seven nanometer. And we're expecting somewhere in the neighborhood of a fifty plus percent Increase in power efficiency compared to seven nanometer. And wow so fifteen percent faster than fifteen percent faster. What would that. What would that be something like thirty five or so thirty five or so percent faster than seven nanometer as well now. Amdi

New Force Of Nature Leaves Physicists Over the Muon
"Cancel culture might becoming for sir. Isaac newton assisting have discovered a new fundamental force the results are from the fermi national accelerator lab in illinois which has been doing experiments on me. Wan's milan's are subatomic particles that are similar to electrons hundred times heavier. Maybe even two hundred one times have year after a full year in quarantine. Thank you. this is why. I'm a professional physics. Comedian i go to the conferences. The experiment involved measuring the wobble of milan's any big magnetic field based on the most current model of particle physics. They should have wobbled at predictable. Rate when scientists recorded wobbling rate. That was faster than expected. They were led to hypothesize enu fundamental force was at play. Of course if you're not on hive like me might not mean a lot but people in the physics community are very excited. They say this finding has the potential to clear up galactic mysteries like dark matter. Look all good. Keep it up guys. Just let me know before you do something that all into a black
Bruce Kirby, veteran character actor and father of Bruno Kirby, dies at 95
"Of a kind. Unoriginal. He will be missed. You would recognize him if you saw him. But if I say that Veteran character actor Bruce Kirby has died. You would? Probably a year ago. Who wan? Um, but we You saw his face. You'd know who he was. He's been on comes of TV shows on guy. I didn't know he was the father of Bruno Kirby. Really? Yeah. Who's dead? Also Bruce Cara Kirby, the veteran character actor, probably best known for playing. The gullible Sergeant George Kramer on the long running NBC series. Columbo has died. He was 95.

Is there going to be a foldable iPhone?
"Two iphone. Prototypes allegedly allegedly passing internal durability tests at apple. This is pretty exciting. So this is according to taiwanese website economic daily news and according to them tests of an apple designed folding hinge system for two different. Iphones were reportedly recently completed at the foxconn factory in shenzhen china. Would do you think that would mean if it's two different iphones. Do you think that would mean the high end low end of their entire next launch. No i think that would be two different sizes of probably a completely new utterly unique skill. interesting okay and that would be something that even even two years ago. I probably wouldn't have predicted. But if you look at apple's friend over the last three to five years i mean. Do you remember when the iphone was the iphone and apple silly branding where they don't call it an iphone or the iphone. They just call it iphone. You remember when that actually made sense because there was only one iphone. Well that's been dead forever like her lineup. Let's let's pull this up. Let's let's pull this up ladies and gentlemen apple. The apple dot com. Okay wait yes. It was something i was going to screen share. Okay where is it if it was the shroud thing okay. It doesn't matter the point. Is those pull up. Apple dot com so under iphone. You've got iphone. Twelve pro two different sizes iphone twelve two different sizes iphone se. I eleven iphone. Ten are and then you've got this this compare feature so you've gotta you've gotta compare feature because there's so many iphones you need a feature specifically to figure out which how much iphone is enough for you and be clear. I'm not saying that it's a terrible idea or anything to have you know of lots of iphones available for your customers. I'm just saying that. That wasn't apples. Traditional approach with the iphone. The idea was that when you bought an iphone you were getting this this curated this validated experience way. It was something to do with the model y video. I think it doesn't matter over. I'm over it so what's happening. Then is that from lake from whether it's from a developer perspective or a user perspective. The iphone is changing. Currently you can get iphones with all kinds of different sizes all kinds of different capabilities. I mean it wasn't that long ago that you could still get actually no. You can still get an iphone with a touch touch. Id home button like that is. That is a fundamentally very different experience compared to the current paradigm which is motion and excuse me motion. Just your control and using face. Id so two. Three years ago. I would have said no. There's no way that apple that if there's that if there's no way they're going to bring out like a completely separate model of folding iphone now i'm looking at it going. There's no way that they don't because apple if anything has shown themselves to be extremely conservative about forcing their users to change unless they've offered a compelling upgrade option so for example the iphone se still kicking around for people who want touch id and who want a physical button iphone. Twelve mini is something that they finally brought out to address the need free from users for a smaller one. Hannibal iphone and they're very tactical about the way that they do these things they will. They will wait three to four years which they know is a reasonable upgrade cycle for like a non enthusiast. And then they'll go okay. Have we managed to get these guys to upgrade. No all right okay all right. Let's do it. Let's do it. Let's let's continue. Let's continue to support this segment of our customer base. So there's no way that they're just going to bring in a folding iphone and replace the iphone pro. I i don't. I don't buy it but then again i would have also said there's no way they're just going to completely remove touch. Id and say okay. It has to face idea you want high end. You wanna new iphone iphone. That's it you're done. You're out so i kind of talked myself out of it. Maybe maybe the iphone folding iphone fold or whatever they end up calling definitely won't call it that because galaxy full got to come up with a new name. So maybe yeah. Maybe the i fold will replace high end but i i don't know man. It was a yeah. I'm kind of on each side because they don't normally introduce a feature this big without making a sweeping change but they have also been trending in the direction of more phones and more large feature differences between the phone. So i could see them going in either direction.
Everything we know about Marvel’s Disney+ series
"Disney dropped a treasure trove of news. They will really so much new content across their marvel Star Wars in Pixar brands. I gotta break it up over two of these segments. Driving the most excitement are the 10 New Star Wars Syriza coming to Disney Plus, including spinoffs from the Man DeLorean, Clone Wars and Rogue one A. Lando, Cal Rizzi in series and the Shocker while we've known about the Obi Wan Kenobi thing for some time, What we didn't know is that Hayden Christianson is returning to play Darth Vader. Wow, Also the next Star Wars movie will be directed by Patty Jenkins called Rogue Squadron and it arrives in 2023.
US cybersecurity agency warns suspected Russian hacking campaign broader than previously believed
"Definitely stick around for the mandalorian post credits scene. After the season. Two finale by eliana document warning spoilers. For the mandalorian season two finale below disney announced a slew of new star wars shows during an investor. Call earlier this month. Including to directly tied to the mandalorian and asakusa series and a drama called rangers of the new republic. But the studio wasn't done plumbing the depths of the mandalorian ip at the season. Two finale of the hit disney plus show previewed yet another spin off series set for december. Twenty twenty one. The book of boba. The episode itself was jam packed with action. Mando gathered together a crew to save baby. Yoda now technically called grow goo but baby. Yoda sounds cuter from the villainous. Mov gideon boba fett created a diversion for the rest of the gang and then flew off into space. Mando then secured baby. Yoda and the dark. Saber by defeating moth gideon in battle but faced a dire challenge in the form of the dark troopers legal imperial droids then none other than luke skywalker arrived to save. Mando's posse and take on the child as his apprentice for story reasons. It's rather convenient. That boba fett wasn't around for luke's cameo considering that bobo once hunted down and tried to kill luke in his friends that would have made for an awkward reunion. But that's not the last we see of fat in a post credits scene. He and finnick infiltrate the lay job of the huts palace on tattoo wayne. New occupied by some of bogus old sycophants including bib fortuna. They kill nearly. Everyone led a slave escape and make themselves comfortable on. Job is thrown then book of boba flashes across the screen along with the december. Twenty twenty one premier date. The announcement comes just one day after original boba.

Oh catano animated series the bad batch a show called the acolyte from the creator of netflix's russian doll and landau starring the cape loving crusader himself.
A Star Wars and Marvel bonanza
"The price hike. It seemed inevitable. I mean it's still cheaper than netflix and considerably cheaper than hvl. Max i would say if people ask me whether or not get disney plus i tend to say like star wars and marvel. Do you have kids at which point. It's definitely word this the sheer volume of content. I'd say it's ok. Okay no for sure. I mean for me. I've got i've got kids. So disney plaza lock. I think anyone who's got a family. This is this is our ramaz. Get a among the many different streaming options that we have nowadays Let's get into the shows. I know star wars near and dear to your heart. So let's let's go there first. They announced or talked about ten shows. Let's let's break out. What are some of the new shows that you're excited for low because of out vehicle order Talk about soka. I dawson brought the character life in live action for the first time in season. Two of the mandalorian and that that's a lot like a backdoor pilot for this show. It's just like suggested that she had her own adventures. going on. this was not a surprise. It is a delight though. It is an interesting we. I think we talked about this earlier. The you know the fact that not to get too deep spoiler as they chee. She was offered a role to mentor. Baby yoda no. You really need to go somewhere else. They felt like definitely had that back door pilot vibe to because like i'm sorry i'm off to other adventures. I've got my own thing. Got to deal with and allow that did seem like a setup for its own show. I'm actually late my own. Tv show salena catch trade this game and it gave a pretty clear idea of what she was up to not to get into splutters between between that and the rebels finale. From a few years ago we have a good idea what her objectives are for this show. Yeah we don't wanna get too deep into spoilers. Maybe we'll we'll devote a whole episode of that later on this year to speculate on what what that might be both water. Somebody other shows that that were announced. It was the next big one we knew this was coming for a long time but they talked about a little with last night and give us a sense that or confirmed that it was filming next march And that christian hated christiansen was returning as dark later. Very very exciting news. That one definitely took me by surprise. tactic territory hidden christmas activator. That's that's interesting. As opposed to advocate skywalker. Which would suggest that he appeared in flashbacks as anikin. But saying he's vader would suggest maybe that he'll appear in four seasons or something that is unclear. It's definitely it's intriguing. Another property was with a character. That's near to many star. Wars fans hearts landau gets his own show yet. These were ten on the ground because we don't know if it's going to be live action or a cgi animated series. I feel like donald glover should be involved. Because he was so well received solo so fingers crossed that he will be returning and then there are a long list of other ones kind of run through them really quickly because we unfortunately only have so much time on this podcast okay so there was the ropes quadrant movie directed by patty jenkins of wonder woman fang which is really exciting. That's super cool. That'd be a fighter pilots. There's the bat batch which will be a follow up to the clone wars at those cartridge orig- use there. There's adore which is about caffeine door from roquan. There's tyco tgi movie which we still don't know what that's about our coop concert raiders of the republic. Which is set around the time. Line of the mandalorian and could be about current june because she became a marshal of the new republic but again that remains unclear star wars visions which is automated shorts from abbey craters. That's really cool quite different the acolytes which obviously is that almost excited with the malls because that is set in the era of the high republic which is two hundred years before the phantom menace. And it's like about some sort of a dark site warrior and it could reveal stuff about the Era some different cool. So those a lot. I know being a super star wars fan. I want to get your opinion on this. Is this too much star wars. It certainly was too much reward announcement. I think parceled out over several years. It should be okay especially since the movies will be quite so frequent. Like i remember when it was only like six months between the last year and solo that felt overwhelming with tv. It's a little different as so you can kind of watch out. I'm at home in a more relaxed environment. it's a lot of star wars. There's no escaping that. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. Brian made a good point before we start recording that you know a lot of these might be one off shows ryden. Obi wan will probably be a one-off sled that that kind of makes sense that they'd wanna have this pipeline but it was a lot to digest all in really what was about thirty minutes a thirty minute presentation just for the star wars section. They're just kept pumping out one announcement after another rapid fire a lot but also i think that's partly a function of the fact that they're no conventions this year star wars celebration was

Apple M1 Looks REALLY Good
"Let's go ahead and kick off with our first topic today. This was supposed to by random kid. No random kid on the forums reviews are beginning to trickle in about the new max based on. Apple's am one and so far. The verdict even among those who weren't given advance samples is pretty positive. The common factor all reviewers are talking about is just how cool the chimps run. Anthony came to me actually within probably about an hour and a half of getting his hands on the mac minis like the fan doesn't turn up and i was like. Wow that's pretty cool While the macbook air does thermal throttle. It is apparently not a significant hindrance. That's something that anthony has been working on his well. Unfortunately some of the tools that we rely on for measuring cpu power states clock speeds. And all that kinda stuff don't exist because some of them are intel specific tools that run specifically on intel processors and unlike on the pc where they're sort of like diagnostic utilities for absolute days. Many of which are community supported or open source on the mac. There's not a whole lot so when something really fundamental changes like this it can take a little bit of time for well for anything to kind of come out that allows you to dig into it Fortunately though you can measure performance at the very least we do have a thermal camera so there are definitely things that we can do and so far. It's looking pretty good. The mac mini and macbook pro rarely if ever even have to ramp up their fans in order to reach maximum performance and don't seem to suffer from any thermal throttling. That was actually something. That if i recall correctly is speculated but since everything that i say about max is automatically wrong. I don't think i'll be getting any credit for that. I think what i said was perhaps the difference between the mac the macbook air and the macbook pro is in terms of performance is not necessarily going to be core configuration or clocks bees or anything like that but rather just cooling solution and then just allowing it to throttle f. You're doing something that's an like an extended load an attack shows the m one outperforming intel's tiger lake mobile processors which are their latest and says that the m one in its maximum performance designed with a small fan is quote unquote astoundingly good with software support on day. One looking good due to rosetta too. I was really impressed with rosetta. Twos ability to just take ob s which it is amazing the kind of criticism that i faced over that video it was like people were like what kind of benchmark is obese is a benchmark of. Here's a random utility. That's pretty people. Yeah does not have a native That does not have a native version. For 'em one and i'm gonna just install it and see what happens and i'm going to like scream. Capture and like encode video and. it's a very industry. It's it's definitely needs but it is a very industry tool. It is used by almost everyone that does things that obese could be used for so it's like What kind of a benchmark is that. I don't know like interesting. Earn so rosetta to for those not familiar. Apple's x eighty six emulation layer that allows apple silicon macs run software that has not yet been optimized for the new hardware now typically this incurs a massive performance penalty. So if you look at something like emulation even emulating a game cube game. Upc that is many times more powerful than a game cube to play spiderman or whatever so clearly what apple is doing is not emulation in a traditional sense. What they're doing is what is it on the fly like binary translation or something like that. I forget what the term is But it's a- if i recall correctly it's like a type of emulation but what's really interesting is it seems like they have some kind of hardware acceleration for it. So let me see if i can find the source. For this data data memory model mismatch you have to dance. Straight up implemented the x eighty six consistency model on their cores. That's kind of detail that emulation performers for different architecture. That's really freaking cool. So they actually baked in Features that are going to make way better at emulating x eighty six so other on devices would have to fully translate load store from x eighty six to arm compatible functions between memory model mismatch. But m one is able to do without this extra translation step
