    Razer going out of smartphones business
    • Company fully cancelled Razer Phone 3 development and also fired small crew responsible for smartphones. As actual design and development had been made by top Chinese brands anyway we can see not finished phone being changed and released under native brand. Industry sourced told that Razer actions are tightly related to new upcoming round of trade war and cancelling development sooner is just measure to minimize losses due to war.

      US is expected to widen and making official total bans on several Chinese top brands, now bans partially work thanks to unlawful agreements with top couriers and largest shops. It is also expected that Apple can fully leave few large markets this year including Chinese one and may be India.

      Spring and following months can be also time for Sony, LG and HTC silently going out of smartphones market as all three companies smartphone departments are living only on big funds injections all past years.

      Red is also expected to fully leave smartphone market this year after very brief period of making their overpriced and underpowered smartphone. Red can also do first rounds of cuts in camera department due to falling sales and especially less interest from rental business.

    Capitalism: Skynet already won
    • If you did not notice - defective form of Skynet already won the fight with real humans.

      Look at youtube - lot of people making videos without any reason, just to appeal algorithm. And algorithms want just more of the same.
      Talk about smartphones? Make sure to talk about Apple, Samsung is worse, Xiaomi also will do. But do not attempt to go outside mainstream without big audience, algorithm does not like this.

      Look at any text reviews or help articles. All of them now being written not for human beings - but for Google keywords. You now have lot of very similar artificial sounding sentences with lots of repeats and all of them spread evenly across article.

      Google search algorithms also works the same as Youtube - they suggest already popular stuff and most popular sites, less chance for error, more profits for ads.

      As one of the articles I recently referenced told - ideally all the links search engine must present must consist of hard porn, but as it is still prohibited it needs to find optimal set that is closes to this.

      Some this is all converging process, it ends on one site only with big fat farting asshole endless video with ad breaks featuring Kim Kardashian.

      Proper way it seems is to back off from algorithms usage in many areas and get back to very complex human managed schemes.
      Unfortunately it is also not possible until you have profits maximization set as your own goal aka capitalism around.

    MacOS destruction is going as planned
    • Later this year, Apple plans to let developers port their iPad apps to Mac computers via a new software development kit that the company will release as early as June at its annual developer conference. Developers will still need to submit separate versions of the app to Apple’s iOS and Mac App Stores, but the new kit will mean they don’t have to write the underlying software code twice.

      This means major Mac OS UI overhaul and it is already going on under wraps.

      By 2021, developers will be able to merge iPhone, iPad, and Mac applications into one app or what is known as a “single binary.” This means developers won’t have to submit their work to different Apple App Stores, allowing iOS apps to be downloaded directly from Mac computers

      Apple will also put more restrictions in new MacOS releases on installing apps. Same as Microsoft will do in Windows.
      Both companies will have big media campaigns explaining to users that only app store applications are nice and safe and all else is total horror.

      Apple plans to start transitioning some Macs to its own chips as early as 2020.

      Transition will be mostly done in 2021. With most Macs becoming extremely underpowered devices with horrible cooling.
      They will be able to perform 10-15 minutes of benchmarks, but no more.
      My source told that Apple now have special team that deals with leading benchmark authors to adopt them and avoid not very pleasant truth.

      Despite the app merger plan, Apple has said it won’t combine iOS and macOS into a single operating system.

      Of course, as they'll just eliminate MacOS, but it will be STILL called such.

    Xiaomi Mi 9 or why DXOMark Mobile is bullshit
    • image

      DXOMark Mobile it seems become main source of income for company who makes it.

      As each major manufacturer want to be on top or close.

      Same thing with latest Xiaomi phone.

      It is just one issue, all of its cameras lack OIS.

    MAGA: Space Force, just little closer to stone age now
    • After months of debate within the Pentagon, the Trump administration is proposing to create the Space Force within the Air Force instead, similar to how the Marine Corps is operated out of the US Navy. The directive calls for the creation of a new position, a Space Force undersecretary, who will report to the secretary of the Air Force.

    New game consoles will be subscription based
    • Idea of Sony and Microsoft with new consoles is to offer you games for rent or via subscription.

      Main option will be 2 kinds of subscription.
      First will be same as current one where you get few free games, but this time you will get them only for one month.
      Second will provide access to pair of new top games and few hundred older ones for one month.

      For all new top games primary way will be renting, price will be set per day and per week.
      Most AAA games won't allow playing without constant internet connection and will keep part of resources in cloud.
      Companies are expecting to increase profits 200-400% such way, similar to Adobe.

      Also both companies plan to spend 80% of their marketing budgets on consoles version that is focused on cloud based streaming gaming.
      It will be cheaper and much simpler. But prices will be set per hour of play, also can depend on video quality.

      Considering power - both consoles will be underpowered, using 8 core Ryzen+ chip (with lowered clocks) and integrated Vega GPU (GTX 1070-1080 performance level) with GDDR6 memory of total 8-16GB. One console can use HBM, but it is low probability.

    Earth Hour 2 aka environmental strike
    • Children as young as five are due to be among the thousands of pupils walking out of their lessons as part of a climate change protest.

      Primary school children, as well as teenagers and university students, are being encouraged to take part in a mass “strike” on Friday over the "lack of government action" on the environment.

      More than 40 protest events are said to have been planned in towns and cities as part of the UK’s first Youth Strike 4 Climate. It comes as similar protests have happened around the world.

      Something tells me that if someone explain this young guys that real "action" means it can end bad. Nothing changed much since Ozone Hoax days, same school guys went on marches not understanding a dime of that is going on.
