Why is Intel failing to Nvidia and AMD?
  • This is not entirely fair though, they spend more than $10 billion over 10 years trying to compete against Arm, but the effort failed despite they had the production process advantage at the time. To get a better picture of the the Intel effort, they spend more on the effort than the entire Arm revenue in that period!
    But Noohh ISA doesn't matter they say. 😂 🤣

  • Ukraine has right to strike military targets within Russian territory, Stoltenberg says
  • There has been an attempt at a balancing act by USA and Europe, and while Europe has abandoned the idea, USA is keeping it.
    The idea is that if Russia lose to much to quickly, it may destabilize Russia, and that could create a dangerous situation with the Russian nukes.
    So USA was sort of in a Limbo, that Russia could not be allowed to win, but they couldn't be allowed to lose and be destabilized either.

    This idea however is becoming less and less popular in USA, and there is speculation that USA will soon lift these restrictions.

  • The total combat losses of the enemy from 24.02.22 to 14.07.24
  • That's some pretty crazy numbers today.
    Incidentally I heard recently that the Russians actually believe they are winning, because they think they can exhaust Ukraine so much they'll surrender.
    But on the other hand, we also heard recently that Ukraine is taking Russians out by a ratio of 1:6.

    I bet Russia is hoping Republicans/Trump will win the American Presidential election. So there will be no more help to Ukraine from USA. Which unfortunately is a strong possibility.

    But Europe and others are preparing, and we will try to cover most of the slack left from USA if Trump wins.

  • Only people who have been trained in the safety guidelines should ever handle them.

    So an actor using a prop gun is required to know and follow safety measures for real guns?
    Because that's really the consequence of what you write, because a prop gun could accidentally be real too.

    That is not security, that's idiocy.

  • which already have visual and auditory differentiators.

    OK that's something. I think if this identification is general, I'd personally check every single round if I was an actor. Both for guns I hold, and guns that are potentially pointed at me.
    If that's a problem for the producer, they should get proper prop guns.

  • Well I don't know the actual regulation, but I have never heard of a weapons accident during filming here in Denmark.
    We have stricter regulation on weapons and 100% no movie maker would even dream of using weapons capable of using live ammo.

    Although Denmark is a small country, we make way more movies than our size would indicate. But still just a fraction of USA.

  • Maybe it wasn't movies by itself, but also other entertainment? But for sure neither oil gas or Automobile were very significant exports back then. Also your list look to be goods only and contain zero services. Entertainment is a service, and will NEVER make that list.

    From your link:

    The trade deficit continues to grow in the U.S. due to the heavy reliance on foreign manufacturing.

    But it would also be usable for theater, and TV shows.

  • Lawyers for ‘Rust’ armourer move to get case dismissed after Baldwin trial collapses
  • I suppose you are aware that those sales would probably go global. Which they are not currently, because there is a lack of proper regulation and standardization.
    They probably don't have to be as good as real weapons, but obviously with regulation, they'd have to be good enough to be safe to use.

  • Lawyers for ‘Rust’ armourer move to get case dismissed after Baldwin trial collapses
  • on more than one occasion talk directors out of using prop firearms that fire blanks

    That sounds like extremely bad advice.

    when followed properly everybody is safe.

    Really, these guidelines would have prevented the use of real bullets allegedly mixed in by the prop supplier?

    Making prop weapons do not have to be of inferior quality, and your argument that some may make live ammo for them would be extremely illogical if that was illegal.
    If you want to use live ammo, what would be the argument for not using a real weapon?
    If it's some homemade shit, it would probably be pretty easy to spot anyway.

    I stand by my original claim, which would 100% have prevented the incident. Even without training. You cannot reasonably argue that it's safer that an actor should read and learn what 40 years of experience and numerous accidents have taught an expert, that he has written a book about. People make mistakes.

    Russia's Kharkiv offensive – what is the plan?

    >Russia has launched an offensive into the Kharkiv region, and it has created a lot of alarmist news reports. In reality it is difficult to see what Russia's plan is, and it is not self-evident that it is a smart use of resources. In this video I discuss whether we might be seeing a return to the fragmented command structures that Russia had in the beginning of the war.

    4 months durability for an $800 phone!

    My old $200 Motorola G9 Power phone lasted almost 4 years with only very minor scratches. Obviously in that period I have dropped it a few times getting out of the car, where the phone sometimes work itself out of my pant pocket while I drive, and then it slips out when I get out of the car. But no problem on my previous phones, despite the Moto had cheap Panda glass front.

    Then I bought my $800 glass back Xiaomi 13T Pro in January, and I loved the phone for the camera and good specs. But alas after only 4 months, and single drop of just 30 cm while sitting on the porch, the glass back immediately cracked! The back now looks like an ugly mess, and the high water resistance is very likely gone too.

    For sure the last time I buy a phone with a glass back!!!

    I wonder why glass back is so popular, and I curse the media for reviewing the Samsung Galaxy S2 as "feeling a bit cheap", because the back was synthetic, and drop tests showed it was 10 times as durable as the iPhone with its glass back.

    Samsung did it right in the beginning, glass backs are a curse.

    PS: I don't use condoms for my phones, if they need that for daily use, it's an obvious design flaw!!!

    The glass back is supposedly there to give a premium feel to the phone. But because it's fragile, people have to use a cover, but with the cover, the premium feel of a glass back is gone anyways? How is glass back not a design flaw?

    EDIT FOR CLARIFICATION:

    I am not clumsy, that's why I believe the phone should be able to last without cover. This was the first time the phone slid out of my packet, and I've NEVER dropped it out of my hands. One 30 cm slip and it's broken. Where for instance my Moto had maybe 4-6 in all over the years, and remained unscathed, apart from some tiny scratches. The sliding out of pocket does occur maybe a couple of times per year, but it's a low drop, and the phone should absolutely be able to handle that tiny drop, as it's an item for everyday use. I've also never had problems with scratches on my screen on any phone, which is the reason people use screen protectors I guess, which I don't either, because they are ugly, for instance they create a tiny ring around the camera, and they feel awful IMO, my phone came with it, and it took exactly 10 seconds for me to decide to remove it, because I could feel the edge of the screen protector when using the phone. But please stop with the dropping my phone regularly comments! Just because I dropped my Moto a few times (slid out of pocket) over almost 4 years! Always from low height, which it should be able to handle a few times.

    Why do Google searches not give maps links anymore?

    It used to be very convenient that when searching for something that had a geographic location, Google searches used to show a small map which linked to Google maps when pressed. Now all I get i a tiny useless map, that doesn't have any of the feature of Google maps, and often I don't even get that. Anyone know why that is? And if there is a fix? I use Firefox, but I'm guessing it's independent of browser, unless Google is up to their shenanigans again. I've added Google maps as search option, which luckily is dead easy in Firefox to do. At the same time I added Open Street Map, to minimize Google map use to maybe show them they are losing traffic.

    EDIT:

    I think this is the reason as u/garrett@lemm.ee writes:

    Elon Musk "We dug our own grave with 'FULL SELF DRIVING""

    https://www.youtube.com/@Thunderf00t

    I considered hard weather this really belongs in Technology, but came to the conclusion that exposing a scammer that is considered a tech genius, does belong here. Because debunking a technology company is as important as showing it, when it's considered valid.

    That said, I believe most people here are already aware that Musk is not to be trusted blindly. But just how bad it really is, may be news to some.
