The first game they show at the beginning of the video displays the minimum and max FPS along with the average FPS on it.

This is a really good point. More than anything Intel needs to stick to it and keep going here. Maybe get these into already built systems with Intel CPU’s for a deal.
The downside is that PC sales have crashed since the lock-in ended (i.e. losses) – so Intel is under immense pressure to cut costs and hey, look over here, a really expensive venture that may not pan out and is already beset by delays and driver issues – they apparently thought they could use their integrated CPU / GPU drivers as a base for their GPU drivers and that flopped. Hopefully they don’t kill their GPU project, but the pressure on the leadership there is to do just that, at this point.

True on that. Alot of that has been the out of sight demand from the crypto bro’s buying up all the industry capacity at pretty much any price and Mfr’s deciding they wanted some of that.
If crypto prices don’t rebound right away it’ll be interesting to see if prices are dropped (the last time of a crypto crash, this is the 2nd that I know of, they stayed flat for a good while afterwards before really climbing again – keeping graphics card demand low from crypto’s, but history may not repeat itself).

As someone who has been watching Starlink being rolled out and with alot more capacity being lofted every month I found this decision odd. Wouldn’t you want to be funding and helping build out this technology where its being used (and no chance of fiber ever being put in alot of these places – because it would be millions of dollars to lay per house). The other company cited for cancellation literally couldn’t build in the places it bid for.
The FCC has a long history of being a very corrupt agency, doing what the existing telecom’s would like and they certainly don’t like Spacelink (the FCC leadership during the Obama administration was literally the only recent time, in the last 30 years, it operated mostly in the interest of average U.S. citizens).
The onus is on FCC leadership to explain this decision a bit better than "while building Spacelink’s capacity out, their speeds would falter below the standards desired" – as the people in rural America for the most part love the service and their alternatives are terrible.

That’s sad to hear (almost comical since its Michigan where headquarters is).
I get the sense that the industry and vehicles in 2027 will be so much better than they are now – alot to be learned, fixed and implemented. Same goes for 2030 it’ll just be so much better then.

I think that was actually "After Covid wrecked our supply chains then you have Vlad threatening and then invading Ukraine which massively increased the prices of oil and natural gas even more, which one or the other are the feed-stocks of some part of all physical things produced in some way…we can’t get off fossil fuels soon enough."
No this was the team that told MS leadership that the Windows 11 UI, designed for a cut down Chrome competitor version of Windows that was cancelled, would be a step backwards for normal Windows customers. Was also the team telling MS leadership consumers want more privacy, not more data mining. Leadership didn’t like the message. /s

At this point, I think the whole "lock in" effect of iMessage is overrated – iPhone keeps grabbing market-share mostly because of Apple’s significantly better default privacy standards than Android and its vendors, and Apple’s phones get OS updates for 5 – 6 years so they’re worth more, longer. As we move further into this era of democracies flirting with (or outright embracing) Authoritarianism – the privacy sales angle will only get more powerful.
Apple should go ahead and port iMessage to Android as well as integrate RCS into the iMessage stack like the slightly newer version of SMS it is (think RCS was defined in the late 90’s originally)…since RCS standard is not E2E encrypted it’ll still be green bubbles (as the blue bubbles mean encryption in iMessage…but Google knows that).

I think you’re right, it would just make it so pics and stuff could be bigger than the 1990 standard of SMS in size, but it’d be an improvement for users.
The blue bubble means encryption – originally iMessage was all Green bubbles and became Blue when they added E2E encryption to it. If a iMessage fails and goes SMS that message is a green bubble, not often but does happen.

When you think its Facebook / Meta running and data mining WhatsApp, its absolutely nuts.
Well said. Not to mention with demand for EV’s way in front of Manufacturers capacity right now, so the rebates would be a waste at this point.
The incentive for EV’s seems to have been designed somewhat intelligently. They’ll be there, but not for expensive EV’s, not for super rich people (so reduce waste on 2 points there) and will encourage the on shoring of the EV supply chain China was smart enough to jump on from the beginning. I actually like the way they did it. Since this is the vehicle tech for the foreseeable future getting the battery tech on-shored is a strategic thing you want done.

The fact there isn’t an quick / easy fix if its just lug nuts for lug bolts is odd as this has been going on for a while….almost like they just want to let the program lie there and die, so bizarre.
Japanese car producers leadership (Toyota in particular) said previously they did not want to go to EV’s as it would mean the loss of their engine / transmission divisions / employees and couldn’t be considered (or something to that extent)… Mazda’s new EV has 100 miles range, Honda’s is tiny and Toyota’s has wheels that fall off…would not be surprised if this was done accidentally on purpose by an employee channeling the CEO’s words.
