Intel Core i7-13700K Review: Ryzen 7 7700X Versus

Nov 29, 2022

Recently we took at look at Intel's new room heater, the Core i9-13900K, and although the performance was quite impressive, the power consumption wasn't and it made the Core i9 rather impractical when it came to heat output and difficulty to cool. This was also the case with the previous 12900K model, though to a much lesser degree, and in that instance we were far more impressed with the Core i7 version, so will the i7-13700K also prove to be the more sensible choice? Well, let's find out… ...read more

Nov 29, 2022

What’s going on with demand for plant-based meat? If you take a look at Barcelona-based Heura the picture seems rosy — with the alt-protein startup claiming “non-stop” momentum and a near doubling of revenue from sales of its faux chicken, beef and pork products in the first half of 2022. Mid-year, the 2017-founded startup reports that it had reached €14.7 million in turnover, up from €7.6M during the same period last year, after clocking up its most successful first half of the yea ...read more

Analyst believes most metaverse business projects will close by 2025

Nov 29, 2022

In context: Mark Zuckerberg's faith in the metaverse remains unwavering, but not everyone shares his belief that this virtual/mixed reality vision is the future of how we work and play online. One of these is market research firm Canalys, which predicts that most business projects in the metaverse will have shuttered by 2025. Reality Labs, the division focused on Meta's hardware and metaverse aspirations, has lost around $16 billion since the start of last year and is making cutbacks as a res ...read more

Court: No Immunity For Cops Who Waited Months To Test Heart Shaped Candy They Claimed Were Drugs

Nov 29, 2022

from the nothing-says-I-love-you-like-a-fistful-of-drugs dept We know cops often can’t differentiate innocuous substances from actual drugs. These from-the-hip determinations are just the manufacturing of reasonable suspicion and probable cause, something that allows cops to perform the searches and seizures they were planning to do anyway. Whether it’s the “odor of marijuana” (something that can rarely be objectively examined in court) or shitty, cheap drug tests that think bird poop ...read more

As Elon Gets Ready To Take Over Twitter, Bluesky Takes A Big Step Forward

Nov 29, 2022

from the some-good-news dept It seems quite likely that Elon Musk will own Twitter in a few days. One thing that has remained very much up in the air through all of this is how Musk views Bluesky. As you’ll recall, Bluesky was a project kicked off by Jack Dorsey back in late 2019, partially influenced by my paper on why we needed to move more to a world of protocols rather than platforms. While Bluesky was seed funded from Twitter, it is entirely separate from Twitter. However, part of the ...read more
