    75th years since biggest defeat of capitalism
    • New biggest ever class war is coming and we are already living now during fast preparations to it.

      First fascist blitzkrieg already happened, response is coming.

      Belorussia is now only one country with victory parade

      Reactionary forces in all other countries cancelled parade under pretence of coronavirus.

      America and Great Britain had victory over the Nazis! "America's spirit will always win. In the end, that's what happens."

      Trump guys statement - elements of rising fascism.

    Bad design: Apple eDP connectors
    • image

      Issue is that you have high voltage backlight signal next to low voltage data signal. Bad things happen if something connects theml like moisture :-)

      Most fun thing that designers for years understood the issue, and even on modern notebooks you hac have flex cable where backlight is far far away and lot of contacts are not used between. Best notebooks have two separate cables even.

      I am not talking about famous Apple spill resistance, or total lack of it. I personally saw internals of lot of Thinkpads and Lenovo Yogas and some of them are superb in this regard (you need to literally drop computer in water for this to happen).

    Capitalism: Issue with TV sales
    • Shipments of LCD TVs by Taiwan-based makers fell 45.2% sequentially to 4.65 million units in the first quarter of 2020, affected mainly by seasonality and the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in China.

      Global shipments of OEM TVs by the world's top-14 OEM makers plunged 28% on year to 13.8 million units in the first quarter of 2020.

      TPV Technology (Xiaomi and Vizio manufacturer) became the top vendor for OEM TVs in the quarter with shipments totaling 2.29 million units, down 18% from a year earlier.

      TCL SCBC ranked second with shipments reaching 2.26 million units, down 12% on year.

      Foxconn Electronics was third, seeing its shipments fall 38% to 1.75 million units.

      Fourth-place Shenzhen MTC saw its shipments decline 6% to 1.32 million units.

      Shipment prospects of OEM TVs are more pessimistic for the second quarter 2020, with overall shipments likely to tumble 30-40% from the levels seen a year earlier.

    Coronavirus: Millions to die from tuberculosis due to ruling class actions
    • The head of a global partnership to end tuberculosis (TB) said she is “sickened” by research that revealed millions more people are expected to contract the disease as a result of Covid-19 restrictions.

      Up to 6.3 million more people are predicted to develop TB between now and 2025 and 1.4 million more people are expected to die as cases go undiagnosed and untreated during lockdown. This will set back global efforts to end TB by five to eight years.

      “The fact that we’ve rolled back to 2013 figures and we have so many people dying, this for me is sickening,” said Lucica Ditiu, executive director of the Stop TB Partnership. “I am outraged that just by not being able to control what we do … and forgetting about programmes that exist we lose so much, starting with the loss of the lives of people.”

      “I have to say we look from the TB community in a sort of puzzled way because TB has been around for thousands of years,” Ditiu said. “For 100 years we have had a vaccine and we have two or three potential vaccines in the pipeline. We need around half a billion [people] to get the vaccine by 2027 and we look in amazement on a disease that … is 120 days old and it has 100 vaccine candidates in the pipeline. So I think this world, sorry for my French, is really fucked up,” she said.

      Issue is that tuberculosis is not so simple illness as told here, as it frequently develops into full fledged infection due to low life level, lack of vitamins and good food, lack of sun, big stress. And lot of people have virus all their life and nothing happens. So it is quite stupid to try to cure it with vaccines only.
