HP boss: Intel shortages are steering our suited customers to buy AMD

DDearborn

Hmmm

Your comments are a complete crock. AMD does NOT "retain control of their systems at all times" Nor does AMD hold any any mystical "Key" which can somehow unlock your system. Good grief. How much does Intel pay for this kind of nonsense.....

AMD, as well as dozens, if not hundreds of independent software/firmware engineers and experts (not to mention hackers the world over) have spent literally thousands, if not 10's of thousands of man hours looking for vulnerabilities in AMD's chips and thus far have found only a couple of minor, easily patched bugs. In contrast, they continue to find massive vulnerabilities in Intel's chips, most of which require massive performance reductions to patch.

More importantly, the fix for the few vulnerabilities found in AMD's chips have already been fixed in their latest Zen 2 7nm process being released in a matter of days. Intel on the other hand, with more than a dozen back doors and vulnerabilities on the books, require the user to literally cripple their performance in order to protect themselves from being hacked. In some cases, the ONLY way to mitigate the threat of being hacked with Intel is to literally disable hyper threading essentially crippling the performance in most end user scenarios.

Furthermore, AMD's Zen 2 is "better" in nearly every major quantifiable performance metric than Intel's offerings. And by Intel's own roadmap, this situation will continue for years. In short, Intel is bleeding market share because it is shipping an inferior product, that costs more to purchase and operate, and is vulnerable to hacking unless you accept a 20-40% performance hit.

As the market continues to shift toward AMD more and more software will be optimized for Zen2-3 increasing the performance gap even more....Intel isn't just wounded and bleeding, it is at the moment, flat on its back.............

RIP Hyper-Threading? ChromeOS axes key Intel CPU feature over data-leak flaws – Microsoft, Apple suggest snub

Re: What about AMD cpu's?

Hmmm

"so there likely are vulnerabilities" says who? based on what evidence? The fact that Intel processors have been back doored 10 ways from Sunday by Israeli engineers has no bearing what so ever on AMD's Zen architecture.

At this point is has become clear that many of these so called "bugs" and "flaws" are in fact back doors put into the original design specs by Intel's Israeli engineers (aka Mossad agents)......AMD does not have any design facilities in Israel and therefore there has been far less chance that the Mossad could gain the necessary access to compromise Zen's architecture.

FYI: Yeah, the cops can force your finger onto a suspect's iPhone to see if it unlocks, says judge

DDearborn

Hmmm

Another Judge, another ruling, another outright violation of the Constitution. The fourth Amendment to the Constitution was specifically written to among other things, STOP the government from conducting random searches, using a general warrant or no warrant at all. Remember, that in order for ANY government search to pass Constitutional muster, it must met ALL the requirements in the 4th Amendment. It continues to amaze me that hundreds of thousands of words are written by the media related to the 4th Amendment each year, and yet, they never, ever, include the actual 4th amendment itselfin the discussion. Such disclosure would of course invariably render moot any attempts support/justify 99% of the government actions in this regard for the simple reason that even the most disinterested lay person would comprehend that such actions are unconstitutional.... supporting/justifying illegal acts against the people by the government, along with illegal and unjust wars and economic policies are "Media's" primary job.

The 4th Amendment contains NO exception, NO exemptions, and NO limitations of the rights of the citizens to its protect.....(accept in times of war or armed insurrection)

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

The moment this evil women handed down her ruling she should have been placed under arrest and charged with sedition. In fact, every time any Judge in America attempts to violate the Constitution and Bill of Rights in such a clear and unambiguous manner they should be , arrested and charged with sedition because that is precisely what they are doing.

Watching the deep state being forced into conducting damage control in public always brings a smile to my face. However, this is one of those times where the best and the brightest on the outside clearly are not listening. They know for a fact that there really is something to see here and they won't move along despite the valiant efforts of articles like this..........

New Zealand cops cuff alleged jackasses who shared mosque murder video, messages online

DDearborn

Hmmm

These high profile "arrests" have nothing to do with "incitement" or "intent". These high profile arrests which are getting so much exposure by the media are designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to stop people from viewing the video. And let us be perfectly clear. THERE IS NOTHING ILLEGAL ABOUT WATCHING A VIDEO OF THIS NATURE!!. Let me say it again" there is nothing illegal about watching a video of this nature!!!! At least in America we have a 1st amendment right to do so. But equally important is the fact that the establishment has said nothing over the years about the literally thousands of videos depicting similar types of violence that have but posted to the internet over the years. There is NO SUCH THING as a THOUGHT CRIME for obvious reasons, not the least of which is that is absolutely, positively impossible for the state to prove it.

The reason the establishment is trying to get this video off the net is simple: the video has some very troubling "anomalies" which call into question the validity of the video and thus the "official" narrative of the events of that day. Jail time for viewing a video which was posted in a public forum isn't just idiotic, it is a crime in itself.......It also suggests that the establishment has something to hide.

Sorry slacktivists: The Man is shredding your robo responses

DDearborn

Hmmm

The "truth" about the ever increasing cry (by the "establishment") regarding the alleged assault by bots is they are, for those paying any attention at all, incredibly selective in their scrutiny and action against robo posts. Why is this rabidly inconsistent behavior a threat to the common man? Simply put, the "establishment" itself, and those that support it, are far and away the worst offenders of robo posting around the world today. Which means that it is the establishment itself which is using the claim of robo posting as a red herring to override the voices of the masses when ever and where ever it suits their needs.

The 2 most blatant, egregious, and ultimately the most dangerous and damaging examples are the establishments use of robo posting to manipulate the demise of net neutrality in the United States and the engineering of fictitious opposition to Brexit in England. These 2 actions without question represent a direct attack against the common man by the ruling elite. IMHO of course.

Windows 10 Pro goes Home as Microsoft fires up downgrade server

DDearborn

Hmmm

It is no coincidence that with that "downgrade" every one of those customers had their entire security settings changed. Home has far fewer privacy protects than pro. This instantly allowed access to customer computers that Microsoft did not previously have.......

Hmmm

The bias against states rights even in this article is palpable. (read "rights" to be anybody other than the "Federal" read centralized base of power and the people that run it)

The fall back position of the US Federal Government in these cases has always been the "Supremacy Clause" Before you all go back to sleep, I humbly suggest you read the Entire Constitution and Bill of Rights. It is not long and for the most not terribly complex. I implore anyone with more than a passing interest to take some additional time to read some of the writings of the Founding Fathers who wrote it. What the Constitution and Bill of Rights actually state, along with the clear intentions of those that wrote them is in this day and age almost ALWAYS DIFFERENT that what the Congress, White House the Courts of our government are telling to sell us. This case is sadly no different......

Re: 125W for ARM?

Hmmm

The 7nm Based EPYC Rome 64 Core (128 core logical) CPU is already in the pipe and is scheduled for release in 2019. Oh and the author is wrong instating that Intel still has 100% of the market. Not even close. AMD has been whittling away at Intel's hold on the market for some time now.

Business needs (read profits) NEVER TRUMP (sorry no pun intended here) citizens right to privacy! Wake up corporate America or you will wake up one morning to find we the people have revoked your corporate charter! "Corporations" have no Constitutional right to exist. Therefore corporations are both created and terminated at the will and please of the people. This idiotic notion held by corporate CEO's the world over that somehow or another it is the other way around is going to spell the end of many evil, vile and essentially undesirable corporate entities in America. Google/Facebook/Youtube, Microsoft etc, you have been repeated warned. Put another way; you need America, but the American people most emphatically do not need the likes of you...................

Meltdown, Spectre bug patch slowdown gets real – and what you can do about it

DDearborn

Re: Don't buy a new Intel based system for a while?

Hmmm

Since AMD is not effected by one of the bugs and less so by the other AMD processors are far less effected. At this point, the only reason that AMD systems are recording any significant slow downs is because Microsoft is forcing AMD users to incorporate ALL the bug fixes onto their system even though they are not needed and this is causing the additional slow downs. A person would have to be truly daft not to believe that Intel and Microsoft, both of whom had recently hit a wall with consumers on their latest offerings and were beginning to lose significant market share to AMD/Linux are colluding to improve their lagging sales (Intel because their newest CPU's are wildly expensive, hot running, energy hogs. And Microsoft because Windows 10 is nothing more than spyware in drag and a huge resource hog)

Microsoft president exits US govt's digital advisory board as tech leaders quit over Trump

DDearborn

Hmmm

It was painfully clear the moment that radical militant terrorist supporting dual citizen Zionist Jared Kusher and his Zionist mafia took over the White House that anyone who questioned their subservience to Israel would be forced out of the White House by hook or by crook.

Why do you think Kushner was protected from ever testifying before Congress, let alone to anyone under oath? (for the record: Kushner NEVER did testify to Congress. Instead, he was allowed to "talk", behind closed doors, in secret, to a bunch of Congressional staffers, aids and interns. Yes people, interns. All you have to remember about that is that it is NOT a crime to lie to any of them) The reason the powers that be went to such extraordinary lengths to prevent his testifying wasn’t because of his meetings with Russia (though they almost certainly in at least one case constituted espionage) They didn’t want the America people to find out that Kushner had been conducting weekly briefings for NutenYahoo and Israel. Not just during the election, but right into first days of the new Administration…….

Basically, the United States is being run by a bunch of radical hard line extremely militant right wing dual citizen Zionist Israelis with a man named Trump put in the "top" spot as their front man..........

Firefox doesn't need to be No 1 – and that's OK, 'cos it's falling off a cliff

DDearborn

Hmmm

The real reason is that the deep state in which google/chrome is an intricate part is a critical component in their ongoing spying/control/manipulation of the masses. Firefox with its endless add-ons still has the ability for a savy user to block such activities. Therefore firefox has to go......

Windows 10 S: Good, bad, and how this could get ugly for PC makers

DDearborn

Hmmm

This is obviously a dry run for what will almost certainly be a harbinger of Microsoft's end game; Windows 11+ that will ONLY allow Microsoft approved applications to run on it.... Oh and it will be cloud based "system" where all of "your" data is stored on "their" computers. Who needs the "P" in computers when you've got Windows! The wet dream of every evil, maniacal and demented capitalist the world over: a totally captive customer base.

FCC lops off red tape around small US ISPs, y'know, things like having to own up about connection speeds

DDearborn

Hmmm

Never let common sense, let alone critical thinking applied to the facts in hand get in the way of corporate profits. Obviously any legitimate business granted the right to operate what is more often than not a local public monopoly, would be morally and ethically bound as well as legally obligated to provide the citizenry with regular and full disclosure of all the financial and operational aspects of its business. Otherwise, there exists no accountability and the public good cannot be fully measured, let alone protected. This concept of the public good is of course ostensibly the reason local governments grant monopolies in the first place. In reality, local governments typically grant monopolies based on bribes and kickbacks. This in turn explains to the complete lack of transparency. When companies and local governments refuse access by the public, you can bet your life that they are ripping off the citizenry in one way shape form or another. All of which begs the question: whenever a local monopoly is granted why isn't full financial and operational disclosure automatically required? If a company is doing nothing wrong wouldn't they want to reassure the public in order to keep that monopoly?

Larry Ellison's Oracle swallows Larry Ellison's part owned Netsuite for $9.3bn

DDearborn

Hmmm

Basically what we have here is a classic example of a conflict of interest. Clearly Oracle grossly overpaid for a company that is bleeding cash, is operating with a dated business model with questionable core assets. Just a guess here, but is seems to me that that the company wasn't worth more 30 bucks a share. And that is being generous. But at that price the boss doesn't get his 3.5 billion dollar pay out.

All of which begs the question: did the management of Oracle serve the stock holders to which it has a legal and binding fiduciary responsibility, or did management simply work to line Larry's pockets? If I was an Oracle stockholder I would be screaming bloody murder about now..........

Tech titans demand free speech law to head off President Trump

DDearborn

Re: Wow

Hmmm

Actually the truth is that Mr. Trump is far more likely to support free speech laws than either Hillary or Sanders. Both of whom have at one time or another supported efforts and legislation which effectively curbs free speech. This article is merely one more in an endless line of thousands of anti-Trump hit pieces that not just the US media and establishment have been spewing out nonstop, but England as well. Such actions are further confirmation that like the US, England is in firm grasp and under the complete control of Jewish/zionist interests. These 2 related groups have the most to fear from a Trump Presidency. On the other hand, the other 97% in America have the most to cheer about with Mr. Trump as President.

How many articles bashing Bernie Sanders have you read on this website? How many articles critical of Israel in general and zionism in particular have you read? For all you Brits who aren't aware (not surprising because the "media" has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide it) In 1963 Sanders graduated from college and was thus subject to the draft. This was well before the Vietnam anti-war fervor. The US had only 18,000 "advisors" in country at that time, most of them operating in total secrecy. The average American had no idea where Vietnam was, let alone that in a couple of years they would be protesting against it. The point is that Sanders had no reason to expect he was going to be sent off to war. What did Sanders do? He tried to dodge the draft completely by filing for conscientious objector status. The US government turned him down flat. At which point he fled to Israel. He decided that rather than take the chance he might have to serve America in uniform, he would serve Israel on a Kibbutz instead. In the 60's all Israeli kibbutzes were under direct military control. In fact, serving on a Kibbutz at that time was considered an alternative form of service to Israel. Sander's could not join the IDF because he would have forfeited his US citizenship.

This dual citizen traitor is what the US media is protecting and promoting to be President of the United States. Contrast that with Mr. Trump has stated emphatically that as President he will always put America and Americans first and you can see why the zionist/jewish interests are objecting. No more special treatment for Israel and jewish interests. No more putting those interests ahead of America and Americans. THIS IS WHAT THE "MEDIA" IS SO AFRAID OF WITH A TRUMP PRESIDENCY!!!!!!!!!!

'Fix these Windows 10 Horrors': Readers turn their guns on Redmond

DDearborn

Re: No Control of Updating

Hmmm

The problem as it were is that many people, of which I am one like to have the freedom of choice. It is my computer, my software, and therefore by rights my choice. Redmond is taking that away. And 30 days for pro users like me simple isn't enough. I want the option to NEVER except specific upgrades. As others have already pointed out MS has a very nasty habit not unlike the industry as a whole to piggyback piles of crap disguised as "updates". At this point I will not upgrade to 10 until my freedom of choice is restored. Hells bells they used to call these "personal" computers for a reason. MS and company want to return to the days of dumb terminals. F them.

Clinton defence of personal email server fails to placate critics

DDearborn

Re: In this case it certainly wasn't illegal:

Hmmm

Actually Hillary did appear to BREAK a variety of laws, not just one. And there were and are applicable laws regarding the transmission and retention of communications of government officials which included emails. But for the sake of argument, let us assume that somehow that act of creating all those communications between Hillary and other government officials on her personal commuter (she has publicly admitted she had them) somehow some way did not constitute felonies; She still broke the law because she willfully failed to retain those records pertaining to her government related communications. A regular Joe would have already been convicted of multiple felonies. Never mind her outright refusal to appear before Congress. You see regular Joe doesn't have a right to refuse to appear. Hillary also lied outright both publicly and privately to a variety of government officials. You may recall that other mere mortals have gone to jail for doing just that.

Not only is this a Red Flag in terms of Hillary's fitness for President; it is a condemnation of her complete lack of integrity, honesty, and basic moral values. In short, she is doing a great job of matching the scumbags on the Republican side of aisle illustrating to the American people what we don't want for President. Sadly the last honest candidate for President was Ron Paul. Even his son has turned out to be a true to his backers instead of the Republic.

'Rowhammer' attack flips bits in memory to root Linux

DDearborn

Hmmm

The fact that a particular piece of hardware is supported does not mean it is widely implemented. And the simple fact is that virtually NO consumer desktop computers come with ECC RAM. As correctly pointed it, it is only when you get into workstation/server class business computers that ECC is used to any great degree. Again the 100's of Millions of computers sitting in homes/offices around the globe are wide open to this attack.

And what about the growing use of SSD's? Surely they are vulnerable to the same type of attack. Essentially this type of security breach will drive the home computer to extinction. Heck, if you can't shut down or effectively censor the internet, shut down/control the computers themselves.

Symantec sources claim exec teams in place by April Fools' Day

DDearborn

Hmmm

In the real world, companies that break themselves up generally do so to line the pockets of the insiders in control. Part of that process (of lining their pockets) involves freeing up capital to pay themselves. And again, generally speaking this is done by the who sale firing of a very large percentage of the work force. It is quick, painless (to the insiders) and incredibly simple. Naturally most of the "insiders" who are behind all this will quickly and quietly fade into the night after the deed is done. The problem with all this of course is also very simple; In the process of gutting the company's workforce, the money saved, which should have gone back into the company, goes instead into the pockets of the insiders. What is left is usually just a shell of the former company. After a year or 2 it will be sold for pennies on the dollar. (often to the same group that plundered it, and left it for dead) Of course some companies are so huge that this process is done on a smaller scale repeatedly without noticeable effect to the casual observer; HP comes to mind. But the truth is that HP today is barely a shadow of its former shelf. But witness the fact that a multitude of insiders over the years have walked away with what adds up to billions in share holder equity.

Which brings me to my final point; the money that is lining the pockets of those concocting these "deals" does not belong to them, it belongs to the share holders.

Paris terror attacks: ISPs face pressure to share MORE data with governments

DDearborn

Hmmm

I love the logic governments employ in these situations. Someone commits a terrible crime, and the first thing the government wants is all the law abiding citizens to give up their freedoms and privacy. Isn't our privacy and hence to a certain extent our freedom the very thing that governments are supposed to be protecting? And isn't it a fact that given that governments are run by people that a certain amount of corruption is inevitable. Therefore the more privacy citizens sacrifice the more likely, and the easier it will be for that criminal element that always inhabits governments will be able to harm the citizens? In other words this is a slippery slope that history has shown inevitably leads to government oppression, tyranny, and dictatorships. And in case you haven't been paying attention the US Great Briton, and Israel are already a long long way down that slope.

Is EU right to expand 'right to be forgotten' to Google.com?

DDearborn

Hmmm

As I have said many times, people have a right to privacy, but not the right to stop people from accessing legally obtained public information. The fact that the information in question may in fact be of a derogatory nature, bestows no special rights or privileges on the disgruntled individual. Specifically information that is legally in the public domain, is just that public. To suggest that one individual's demand would hold sway over the rest of the world, when no crime has been committed is absolutely insane. It also is patently illegal because it is violating the right of everyone else to access information. As long as it is legal (and people until a conviction in a court of law, each item remains as such--individuals and providers are not judge, jury and executioner) freedom trumps obfuscation every time.

Makers of Snowden movie Citizenfour sued by ex-oil exec

DDearborn

Re: Ironic, given the furore over The Interview.

Hmmm

Actually the US government spying on foreign heads of state is technically, under international law, completely Illegal. Obviously, every significant intelligence service in the world does precisely the same thing. But there is a reason this is all done in secret. And keeping the subject in the dark is not the only one. It is kept secret because it is ILLEGAL. And I am sure that in the countries in which the spying actually takes place, the NSA operations are not considered legal or ethical. And again, technically speaking, it is the laws of the country in which the crime takes place that apply.

And here is a news flash Vociferous; In the United States, the Constitution specifically demands that only after very specific requirements are met and only AFTER a Warrant issued FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL, can the government legally conduct a search. The 4th Amendment is very specific, and offers no wiggle room, or relief for the government what so ever. And in point of fact, if you read the papers of the founding fathers, the 4th Amendment was SPECIFICALLY enacted to prohibit precisely this kind of tyranny against the people. And make no mistake, the constant threat of being spied on by your own government, when you are doing absolutely nothing wrong is tyranny. It is also designed to oppress the will of the people by intimidating them not to speak out against the government.

JFK summed up the problems and dangers with secrecy far better than I ever could:

"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment."

Blind justice: Google lawsuit silences elected state prosecutor

DDearborn

Hmmm

The last time I looked Google was not some faceless "Multi-National" it is effectively controlled by a handful of people. I find it interesting that no where in this discussion are their names raised. Nor any discussion put forth regarding their political and ideological leanings. In the case of Google, accountability rests with this small group, so why isn't the media holding them accountable? In fact why does the Media always fail to hold PEOPLE accountable when discussing Multi-Nationals?
