#6  Intel to Unveil 'Ultra Low-Voltage Bitcoin Mining ASIC' in February

3 people viewing this

@tech      By The Dogefather      4 days ago

The move would bring the chip maker into the same market with such companies at Bitmain and MicroBT.

Intel, one of the world's largest chip makers, is likely to unveil a specialized crypto-mining chip at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in February, according to the conference's agenda.

One of Intel's "highlighted chip releases" at the conference is entitled "Bonanza Mine: An Ultra-Low-Voltage Energy-Efficient Bitcoin Mining ASIC." The session is scheduled for Feb. 23.

This brings the company into direct competition with the likes of Bitmain and MicroBT in the market for bitcoin mining ASICs, or application-specific integrated circuits, for the first time.

Crypto mining has in the past driven up demand and prices for graphics processing units, including Intel's, so much so that it attracted the ire of gamers. Unlike its competitor Nvidia, Intel has said it doesn't plan to add ether mining limits on its graphics cards.

#8 verizon......slaps phony data caps on all 5G hotspots

Verizon's new C-Band spells the end of unlimited 5G hotspots in its wireless plans


visit this link https://www.tomsguide.com .. ll-5g-hotspots


Verizon is about to flip the switch on its new C-Band-based 5G network, but that has come at a cost. While Verizon unlimited data plans used to include unlimited hotspot data on mmWave 5G, the new plans unveiled this week as part of Verizon's upcoming C-Band launch will now have caps.

Verizon confirmed the move to PCMag along with an explanation. Verizon's initial mmWave network could handle devices using up to 800MHz at once, but C-Band can handle a much lower 60Hz

Verizon is still calling the new network Ultra Wideband (UWB), and has instituted 50GB limits on the new 5G plans' hotspot allotments to compensate for the reduced capacity. Once you hit this cap, you'll be knocked down to 3 Mbps on UWB and 600 Kbps on nationwide 5G/LTE.

If you've been relying on your phone for your home internet, Verizon will have two options for you: 5G Home and 5G Home Plus

The C-Band rollout will allow Big Red to offer a new 5G-based home internet service (different than its Fios brand) with no data caps

Availability for this will expand over time, potentially offering consumers a new fast and reliable home internet solution in their area. Verizon says that users on a 5G UWB wireless plan for their phones will get 50% off one of the two new home internet plans.

C-Band will augment the mmWave-based UWB network, offering customers faster and more reliable speeds in more places. With mmWave, the best experience is in line of sight of the tower. That is obviously very limited — so while Verizon has some of the fastest speeds available, it's difficult for most people to access a signal. And signal quality decreases significantly indoors, which C-Band might help address.

This C-Band rollout is set to cover 1,700 more cities, effectively serving over 100 million people. Verizon's previous mmWave-based Ultra Wideband network was available in around 87 cities. Verizon claims the new network will be 10 times faster than LTE, going up to 1 Gbps. That means the best 5G phones stand to gain a lot. For many people, the new 5G network should be noticeably faster than LTE, which hasn't always been the case with 5G up to this point.

Verizon and AT&T will both launch their C-Band networks on January 19 after agreeing to delay the launch amid objections from the Federal Aviation Administration, which is concerned about C-Band interfering with the safety systems on some planes.

#10 apple.....slapped with class action lawsuit over powerbeats pro charging issues

4 people viewing this

@tech      By messy marv stan      1 week ago

visit this link https://www.engadget.com/ .. 221509629.html


Apple is facing another lawsuit over Powerbeats battery trouble. New York resident Alejandro Vivar has filed a potential class action lawsuit over allegations Powerbeats Pro design defects prevents the wireless earbuds from charging properly

As it's reportedly too easy to lose contact between the buds and their charging case, one of the earpieces either won't charge "consistently" or quickly drain its charg

Apple committed fraud by misrepresenting battery life and failing to address issues it supposedly knew about, the plaintiff said.

Vivar's attorneys suggest a combination of the case design and an insufficiently sturdy ear "gasket" (the piece that goes into your ear) may be responsible.

Customers have had to resort to inserting a "wedge" to keep the charging pins in contact, according to the lawsuit. The lawyers also reject Apple's claims the Powerbeats Pro are sweat- and water-resistant, arguing that sweat corrodes the charging contacts.

The lawsuit calls for Apple to "correct" the situation, compensate affected users and pay unspecified damages


If the lawsuit is fully certified as a class action, it would cover both New York customers as well as those in Georgia, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Virginia.

We've asked Apple for comment. As with many such lawsuits, there's no certainty it will reach class action status or lead to compensation. And don't expect a windfall even if the case succeeds — with some exceptions, class actions tend to result in small payouts. If anything, the lawsuit may do more to affect design choices than Powerbeats Pro buyers' bank accounts

#11  Microsoft launches matte black Surface Go 3 with optional LTE

2 people viewing this

@tech      By Top Goon      1 week ago



Quote:

Is Microsoft's Surface Go line of tablets designed for hardcore computer users? Absolutely not. That is OK though. Not everybody is a gamer or enthusiast. Look, some of us just need to get basic work done. And so, an affordable computer with meager specifications, such as the Surface Go, can be a wise purchase. After all, you can turn it into a laptop by purchasing the optional keyboard cover or a desktop by connecting it to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

If you have been on the fence about purchasing a Surface Go 3 -- the latest model -- I have some great news. Beginning today, Microsoft is selling a beautiful new version. No, the specifications are not different, but the body is... sort of. You see, the little tablet is now being offered in a beautiful matte black color.

Like the platinum variant of the Surface Go 3, there are two processor options -- the Intel Pentium 6500Y and Core i3-10100Y. The platinum model is offered with either 4GB or 8GB RAM, but the matter black version is only offered with 8GB RAM. Internal storage is limited to a 128GB SSD. LTE connectivity is an option, but only on the Core i3 model. Sadly, 5G is not available.

If you want to buy your own matte black Surface Go 3, you can order it from Microsoft directly here. Pricing starts at $549, but I would caution against buying the Pentium model since the superior Core i3 variant is only $80 more. And while the type cover is technically an optional accessory, it is an essential part of the laptop experience and should be strongly considered.

@tech      By Javon23      1 week ago

Netflix has increased the price of its monthly subscription plans in the U.S. and Canada, effective immediately for new subscribers beginning on Friday.
In the U.S., subscribers to Netflix’s basic plan, which allows for one stream on one screen at a time and does not have HD streaming, will now be charged $9.99 a month, up from $8.99. Standard plans — which allow for users to stream on two screens at the same time — now cost $15.49 per month, an increase from $13.99, while premium plans have inched up to $19.99 a month.
Netflix last hiked up its prices in Oct. 2020 by $1 to $2, depending on the subscription tier.

#13 I'm joining the heard BX...reluctantly getting an iPhone

11 people viewing this

@tech      By ClustyMolecules      1 week ago

I've been an android user since the birth of Christ. I've never really liked Mac os/iOS and have always talked sh*t about the lack of customization options and features compared to an android device. But over the years I've kinda lost the desire to really get into and use this stuff like I used to. So, partly because I just want to try something new for once, and partly because my wife wants to get into the ecosystem mainly because the kids use iPads at school, we are making the switch. I ordered the 13 Pro Max. Been watching yal argue about these damn phones for years so im looking forward to experiencing the other side lol

Things I know ill miss:

-Goodbye being able to stream a game or boxing match from my browser in picture-in-picture while I have another app open and still being able to respond to texts and messages via notifications drop down simultaneously

-Goodbye Nova Launcher...ill miss being able to set swipe gestures to open apps and perform actions

-Goodbye navigation bar at the bottom...this one is gonna hurt


Things im looking forward to:

-Battery life, I hear good things. I feel like the batteries on my Samsungs have been garbage. Its never been the same since they got rid of removable batteries. Note 2 was probably my favorite phone

-Camera and camera app experience. Those who frequent this section know I fu*k with photography so as soon as I get my sh*t next week, if no one has started one, I'll create a 2022 photography thread. My s9 camera app has been sluggish for a long time so I fell of on phone photography unfortunately.

-Longevity. Interested to see how it still handles a few years down the road. I'm a*suming well.

I copped the Caudabe Sheath case based on some videos I watched. Looking for recommendations on which magsafe charger to buy, and really just recommendations in general. Apps, phone accessories, etc. You'll never catch me with airpods though im not that cool :)

#15  KB5009543 and KB5009566 updates are breaking VPN connections in Windows

2 people viewing this

@tech      By Top Goon      1 week ago



Quote:

Updates for Windows are supposed to fix problems, boost security and add new features, but all too often they cause problems of their own. This month's Patch Tuesday updates for Windows 10 and Windows 11 are no different in this regard.

Earlier this week, Microsoft released KB5009543 for Windows 10 and KB5009566 for Windows 11. Users who have installed either of these updates are reporting issues with L2TP VPN connections.

It is only Windows' built-in VPN client that appears to be broken, with third -party tools remaining unimpaired. According to reports, there are not problems with all VPN devices, but Reddit users are complaining of issues with connections to SonicWall and WatchGuard Firewalls.

People whose systems are affected by the problem have been alerted to the fact by the appearance of an error message reading:

Can't connect to VPN

The L2TP connection attempt failed because the security layer encountered a processing error during initial negotiations with the remote computer.

At the moment, there is no official fix or workaround for the VPN issues, leaving affected users with just one option -- uninstall the offending updates. This can achieved from an elevated Command Prompt using the following commands.

For Windows 10:

wusa /uninstall /kb:5009543

For Windows 11:

wusa /uninstall /kb:5009566

#17  eBay is currently down (partially)

2 people viewing this

@tech      By Top Goon      1 week ago

Spending this afternoon in the warmth of your home or office searching around eBay for ways to spend your money? The good news is you probably arenÂ’t having too many problems, but eBay is having problems somewhat behind-the-scenes, and has been since last night.

From then and into this morning, if you tried to add an item to your cart, you likely found that you were not able to, and it resulted in an error message. That problem was resolved early on today, but it didnÂ’t fix all of the woes for the auction site.

Currently, if you attempt to search for a store, youÂ’ll encounter another of the companyÂ’s current behind-the-scenes problems. Most notably the businessÂ’ Stores canÂ’t be searched. As you may know, eBay allows sellers to set up their own online businesses to sell items. Got a lot of trading cards? You can load them all in, complete with scanned pictures, a description and a price. That way one of your items can appear in a potential buyerÂ’s search. ItÂ’s become a big part of the business and many sellers do quite well from the service.

eBay has so far not released any statement, and Down Detector is running at a manageable 10 percent or so after spiking overnight at close to 50 percent, so itÂ’s possible the problem is now only for the Stores.

@tech      By patt24      1 week ago

I have a brand new DJI Ronin-S Gimbal with the complete essentials kit + a waterproof hard case. It was the backup gimbal that never got used.

Planned on using it with my RED Raptor but got rid of the Raptor and this doesn't have a high enough payload for my other cameras. (max payload 8.8lbs)
