>Google's decision to suspend Huawei's use of some parts of the Android operating system will send shockwaves through the smartphone market. Huawei is the second biggest smartphone maker but relies on the Android operating system, which is effectively run by Google, as the engine of its devices. Google will block Huawei's use of Android updates, apart from those made available in the open-source version of the operating system, according to Reuters.

>In a statement Huawei said: "Huawei has made substantial contributions to the development and growth of Android around the world. As one of Android's key global partners, we have worked closely with their open-source platform to develop an ecosystem that has benefited both users and the industry.

>"We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally," it said.

>Google's move comes after the US Department of Commerce last week added Huawei to its 'Entity List' because the department said it had information that led it to conclude that Huawei is engaged in activities that are contrary to US national security or foreign policy interest. US companies cannot transfer technology to a company on that list without a licence from the US government.

>At the time, Huawei said the move would do significant economic harm to the American companies with which Huawei does business, affect tens of thousands of American jobs, "and disrupt the current collaboration and mutual trust that exist on the global supply chain".

>Google has said that for current Huawei users nothing changes yet. "We assure you while we are complying with all US gov't requirements, services like Google Play & security from Google Play Protect will keep functioning on your existing Huawei device," it said.

>Huawei has said that it will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those have been sold or still in stock globally.
>However, it's unclear whether, when future versions of Android arrive, it will be possible to upgrade your Huawei smartphone.

>When security researchers disclosed a series of major vulnerabilities impacting Intel processors back in January 2018, it was clear that “Meltdown” and “Spectre” were indeed serious — and wouldn’t be the only exploits of multi-threading chips. Now a new Intel chip vulnerability nicknamed “ZombieLoad” has been revealed to the public, and though it’s already being patched by three major operating system makers, there’s some bad news: full protection could reduce your CPU’s performance by up to 40%.
>Referred to by the more technical name “Microarchitectural Data Sampling,” the ZombieLoad exploit enables an attacker to access privileged data across trust boundaries. In a cloud hosting environment, it could enable one virtual machine to improperly access information from another; researchers also showed that it could be used for app surveillance and password acquisition. The vulnerability broadly impacts operating systems that run on Intel chips, including Android, Chrome, Linux, macOS, and Windows.

>In a just-published support document, Apple suggests that full ZombieLoad mitigation will require Intel chip users to disable Intel’s hyper-threading processing feature — a major selling point of the chipmaker’s CPUs. During testing this month, Apple says that it found “as much as a 40 percent reduction in performance with tests that include multithreaded workloads and public benchmarks,” though actual performance impacts will vary between machines.

>An Intel page discussing the vulnerabilities downplays the performance impacts, suggesting that the performance impact is small: up to 3% without disabling hyper-threading, and up to 8-9% with hyper-threading disabled, though included charts show tinier changes using the latest, high-end Intel Core i9-9900K processors.

>Intel underscores that disabling hyper-threading isn’t really necessary for some users: consequently, unless it’s necessary for a given customer’s workloads and security environment, it says that it’s “not recommending that Intel HT be disabled, and it’s important to understand that doing so does not alone provide protection against MDS.”



You know, all I can think about during the waves of Intel exploits is two things:
One, the stock bumps AMD gets every time,
Two, just how many vulnerabilities AMD has that haven't been brought to light.


That is true. But it could be the reason Intel was ahead in the speed race, they cut corners and it has come back and bit them now.

Let's get a thread going for pre-cyberpunk depictions of the future. It seems like sometime after the cultural revolution of the 60s and 70s it became trendy in sci-fi to imagine grim dystopian end-of-the-world scenarios. While some of these dystopian settings can be interesting or at least aesthetically cool, I tend to prefer more positive imaginings of the future, from a time when Western civilization saw itself as a force for good in the world, before cultural Marxism taught us to see ourselves as a menace that needs to be deconstructed and subdued.

>Opportunity is already buried – all that’s left is to say goodbye. The ageing Mars rover became mired in a colossal dust storm in June 2018, and operators haven’t been able to reach it since then. NASA is expected to announce later today that Opportunity’s mission is officially over.

>In January 2004, two rovers – Spirit and Opportunity – touched down on the surface of the Red Planet. NASA hoped that one of the two rovers would last for 90 days, but this turned out to be a huge underestimate. Spirit roved the surface for nearly six years before getting stuck in a patch of soft dirt, while Opportunity has lasted well into its 15th year before joining its sibling.

>Before Spirit and Opportunity landed, the accepted picture was that Mars was pretty much dry except for its polar ice caps, and may have always been that way. That was overturned when the rovers found evidence for ancient water on Mars – repeatedly.

>Over the course of its mission, Opportunity drove about 45 kilometres, exploring more than 100 craters along its way and weathering bitter cold and numerous dust storms.

>On 10 June, Opportunity sent its last signal to Earth. Since then, operators have frantically sent more than 600 wake-up calls to the rover instructing it to turn on and phone home, testing every kind of spacecraft error that they know how to correct.

>Nothing worked. There was no call home. 5499 days into its 90-day mission, Opportunity is finished. “It’s the end of the first great Martian road trip,” says Seibert.
>Ultimately, the rovers will be remembered for their incredible longevity. “I thought we might get 6 to 8 months on these things, maybe as much as a year” says Squyres. “If a spacecraft functions for 15 years and dies in one of the biggest dust storms Mars has seen in decades, that’s an honourable death.”

Welcome to the future of shopping, where you pay for your products with not just money, but your behavioral data. Kroger is pushing new tech to try and beat Amazon out in the grocery field, tech that will start to implement population conditioning and mind control. Sound ludicrous? Let's go over the facts.

>Digital shelves. This system — which originally debuted in the fall and is currently present at the ends of aisles in 92 Kroger stores — eschews paper price tags in favor of digital displays, enabling shelves to dynamically update prices and display other information like ads, promotions, and nutritional details. Additionally, if a customer uses Kroger's self-checkout app, the shelves can recognize when they enter an aisle and display a personalized icon to guide them to products on their shopping list.

Now, with the touch of a button, you can be guided to the item you so desire. But, what if you don't even know what you want? Don't worry, the system has you covered.

>A network of in-store sensors. These include ceiling-mounted sensors that collect data on shoppers' habits

>Additionally, Microsoft's artificial intelligence (AI) can estimate data about customers, such as age and gender, enabling Kroger to serve targeted ads to shoppers on digital shelves' displays while they're in the store. These ads could serve as a new source of supplemental revenue for the grocer.

With the power of AI and spying on you 24/7, we know you better than you know yourself. Having trouble shopping? We will guide you to what you really want. The isle will light up for you, playing targeted ads, convincing you of what you need. And with dynamic price shifting, think of all the things we can do in the future! We can add diversity taxes for the culturally impaired people, discounts for (((members))), and fix the gender bias in product pricing! And it's all just the beginning. What if we take it a step further, and built what you want before you even knew you desired it? What if we guided what you wanted? What if we guided what you think? What if we guided humanity to a better future?

A little late to the party, aren't we?

Data collection and targeted marketing has happened online for a very long time now, why is it surprising that it would branch out to brick and mortar? If anything, the enhanced targeting is just an evolution of what loyalty programs have been doing for decades already. In fact, I expect point programs to be a big selling point to encourage adoption of this system.

>eschews paper price tags in favor of digital displays

And you've officially lost the environmentalist crowd.

>In all seriousness, this will have huge ramifications.

Not really. It's just an evolution of the shopping experience that comes natural with technological growth. I'm sure people complained to the heavens when digital POS systems overtook traditional registers, too.

>removing checkouts, and the jobs they come with.

Never going to happen in today's job obsessed political climate. Come back in two decades.

Is this new? We've had e-paper price tags here in Sweden YES for a couple of years now.


i didnt think i would have to cut off my right hand so soon.


>What if we guided what you wanted? What if we guided what you think? What if we guided humanity to a better future?
Thats already happening its been happening since 1945. it ramped up in the 1960's specifically the numerous (((Revolutions))) and civil rights act and the 1967 immigration law.as time passed on from that point shit just kept getting worse and worse, and thus here we are in the jew world order in the current year.


But were they used with a system that's designed to spy on customers, or were they just used to make updating the prices on items easier?
It's the spying and potential for manipulating people that's the main point of the thread.

It's just a coincidence, but a funny one.
On that other note, a peacock is brightly colored for the sake of inviting all the hens to fuck him.


Those pictures… heavy special snowflake syndrome. Women's solution to personal shortcomings: more style. Not reflecting and changing. Rather trying to make the look work more (which fails because if you're the problem you've got to fix that…).

I know many people fail at personal change where it's necessary but only women try to make the look work and if that doesn't work out everybody but themselves is to blame for whatever doesn't fit into their personal view of the world.
On top of that it's often a guessing what's wrong or what they refer to as they constantly avoid to clearly point at or name an issue. All part of the "you don't understand" victim role and to make their special logic work because if you neither know what they're refering to nor what's the issue with it you can't get on the argumentative level with them. It's nerve-racking.

we're nowhere near building true AI just imitating a bit of the visual or language interpretation the brain does with 22watts takes huge server banks soaking up massive amounts of power.

any serious attempt to build a true supercomputer based artificial intelligence let alone an independent robot would take several revolutionary leaps in computer science we'd have to leave silicon behind entirely, replace modern digital logic with reversible analog digital hybrid architectures, with on chip gigabytes of operable memory, running (N)threaded super parallel operating systems at terahertz, while talking to fucking quantum gpus through fiber optic simultaneous use buses. and that's just the point when it'd actually be feasible we'd still need a shit ton of work on the problem itself after shaving all those yaks.

unfortunately all that stuffs overkill for what everyone's really talking about when you say AI, jobs. most of the technology for creating robots that could effectively do most jobs already exist or will soon 193nm lithography is just now being replaced with extreme ultraviolet 13.5nm processes that will have 7nm chips on the market this year. the three biggest problems in robotics right now are high density power storage, the fact their just isn't a good linear actuator, and getting enough processing power and sensors into the thing for it to have half an idea what its doing and all that stuff could come a lot sooner than you think.

ultimately all the technology's needed to make AI would change the world in ways you can't even comprehend seriously we have autists building nuclear reactors, gene editing labs, and silicon fabs in their basements today scifi is a pale shadow of what the autistic outcasts of the future will birth.

Eh, I can dig it. At least we got alt-tech and medi-sci discussion going again, eh?

But why do some posts say 2 years? mlpol was a year and 9 months ago, and the site does a method of dating like Youtubes, meaning those posts predated mlpol proper…right?


Well mlpol started with just /mlpol/
Then came /sp/ and you know what came with football? the denver broncos.
So the only posts capable of being almost 2 years old are those from /mlpol/ you can guess some posts from /mlpol/ were moved to /cyb/ that's why they are so old.
Mlpol.net was not created april 1, but i don't remember if it was april 2 or 3
So yeah, mlpol.net is not 2 y/o yet, it's probably just an error from the server not being able to into timedates.

Cyberpunk was briefly a "movement" in literary science fiction, back in the last century when everything was printed on dead trees. It started around 1980 and lasted around six years and involved a handful of authors:

Bruce Sterling
William Gibson
Rudy Rucker
Pat Cadigan
John Shirley

Just about all of these people were Canadian acid-casualties, hippies who hated America, Americans, capitalism, and President Reagan, and who were terrified that he was going to blow up the world, or get us all enslaved by Them Evil Japs, or Them Evil Wall Street Sheenies, or all three simultaneously. It came through in everything they wrote.

Most of the early c-punk stuff was short stories written by Gibson and Rucker that got printed as filler in between poorly written, sensationalized Sunday-supplement level "SCIENCE!" articles in a shiny-paper deadtree magazine called "OMNI" in the early 1980s. Stuff like "Burning Chrome" and "Tales of Houdini."

All of it was experimental. All of it was either blackly humorless grimderp verging on self-parody or absolutely bleak in tone, uniformly in nightmarishly dystopian settings where the world was owned by ruthless Japanese corporations, and most the settings included nuclear war and/or global ecological collapse as part of the backstory. Just about all of them were about mohawk-wearing Rebels Against the System who usually had big clunky cybernetic prosthetic arms, who normally had mirrorshades, scuffed black leather jackets, or both, either dying pointlessly or running for their lives through the neon-lit gutters from Space Yakuza Ninja assassins. The countryside doesn't exist. No one ever sees a tree or a flower or stands with his boots touching earth instead of concrete, nor ever did.

As a "movement," it was over not long after Ronald Reagan was elected for his second term, and the original material really hasn't aged well. This despite the term continuing as a genre description down to the present day, which carries a connotation of a retro-futuristic mashup punk rawk/film noir setting full of of l33t h4x0r types with Ethernet jacks surgically wired into their brains, in the centers of their foreheads, and their buddies, hulking strong silent type gengineered cyborg'd-out killing machines with robot hands that have knives that pop out of them, that they were in Special Forces with in The War.

>Marbled crayfish are the only known decapod crustaceans to reproduce only by parthenogenesis.[5] All individuals are female, and the offspring are genetically identical to the parent.[4][8] Marbled crayfish are triploid animals,[4][9] which may be the main reason for their parthenogenetic reproduction. Marbled crayfish are thus a model for the rapid generation of species.[4]

>Because marbled crayfish are genetically identical, easy to care for,[10] and reproduce at high rates, they are a potential model organism, particularly for studying development.[11] A major drawback, however, is the long generation time (several months) compared to other research organisms.[12]

Since they are genetically identical wouldn't it be easier to create a population of genetically modified crayfish? Say you inserted a gene to produce a protein in one of them. Then all of it's off spring would produce that protein as well. In time you could have enough crayfish to produce your protein in commercial quantities.
