    Capitalism: AMD is cheating in some benchmarks, like Apple

      AMD is able to detect Cinebench, and it can keep performance as test is quite short.

      Apple is doing same both in Cinebench and for Geekbench.

    China launches Chang'e-5 lunar mission - huge warning to US
    • If successful it is be major blow for US, as it sets China one small step away to destroy myth of fake Apollo lunar missions.

      And this step can be required during next stage of economic war to almost kill morale in US.

    Capitalism: How big tech companies lie you about their love for green stuff
    • Some years ago (around 7 years ago) it was Apple who invented new tech - now all the boards and screens must be broken/destroyed by any company that gets them for utilization. 2-3 years from this "innovation" Apple demand video fixation of this process and also usually have their own inspectors on large firms doing this.

      Goal of this thing is to reduce number of notebooks and smartphones that could be restored by non official services for cheap. Destroying main boards helped. As well as going to soldered CPUs and later to soldered CPU+hubs.

      In the years to follow lot of other firms joined Apple, now around 98% of perfectly good GPU complex boards or computer motherboards that have minor issue (like faulty DC-DC converter or hub issue on MB) will be intentionally broken (by drilling or chopping large piece).

      Interesting thing is that green ecology guys have amazing smell for such things, few guys I talked perfectly understood that their health and income are in danger if they'll start talking loudly about this. So they prefer to protect snakes in the Amazon delta.

      In last 2-3 years companies went further. They started to add "privacy and protection" or, in real life, serialization of each major component to prevent any replacements, including large chips or screens or sensors (including camera sensors in all latest iPhones). At the same time, simple device firmware protection level reaches top government works, now almost all CPUs and lot of hubs have secret embedded CPU cores with their own memory and secret firmware that are doing some stuff (but no one is perfectly sure that exactly). And this secret parts also helps in preventing any repairs (hence - helping increase new machines sales).

      Apple M1 fully closed system is just one more step in the same anti social direction. As company hopes to move serialization and total encrypted hell from smartphones and tablets into notebooks. Finally killing any repairability after they totally killed any modularity and upgradability. And it is very naive and false assumption that this guys stop here. As they already started to talk openly that they have right to look at all your apps installed on laptop, as well as files (as they say - it can be dangerous things among them!) and censor anything they won't like. All they will do is rent you notebook for total time of usage with additional fee for active usage and special fee for any application launch and work in it. You will need to remember to use BF deals to be able to afford creating long documents, as it'll be also special extra fee for keyboard typists.

      Competition won't allow this to happen? Don't be naive. It is just few monopolies left and they are closing their ecosystems with staggering speeds.

    Capitalism: After racism always comes sexism
    • Germany’s coalition government will introduce a mandatory quota for the number of women working as senior management in the country’s listed companies, in a move hailed as a “historic” step towards sexual equality in German boardrooms.

      In a deal agreed on Friday evening by Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats and their junior partner the Social Democrats, management boards with more than three members must include at least one woman, reversing a voluntary system that critics argue has failed to achieve the required shift towards gender equality.

      Franziska Giffey, Germany’s federal minister for women, said: “This one breakthrough is historic. We are putting an end to women-free boardrooms in large companies. We are setting an example for a sustainable, modern society. We are exploiting all of our country’s potential so that the best in mixed teams can be more successful. Because nothing is done voluntarily and we need guidelines to move forward.”

      This people and this times will be long remembered as they will be in one list with Hitler and his friends.

      Instead of providing real help for woman who can't even afford to have number of children they want now in Germany, they are playing shitty games with quotas making new boards that are already destroying all major German firms.

      It all sounds so important, so bold. Quite in contrast to solving real people problems. But this people must get one basic thing - if woman are worse performers and can't compare - it should be no woman at all in the board, and in reverse - if they are really better after giving birth for two babies required for population reproduction - they can take all the board, 100%.

    Capitalism: Apple and Facebook tell truth about themselfs
    • Apple on Thursday in a letter addressed to nonprofits, including Human Rights Watch and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, saying it doesn't hoover up detailed user data to sell to third parties. Facebook takes a "very different approach," Apple said.

      "Not only do they allow the grouping of users into smaller segments, they use detailed data about online browsing activity to target ads," Apple's Senior Director of Global Privacy Jane Hovarth wrote in the letter.

      "Facebook executives have made clear their intent is to collect as much data as possible across both first and third party products to develop and monetize detailed profiles of their users, and this disregard for user privacy continues to expand to include more of their products."

      Facebook hit back hard in a statement sent to Business Insider, accusing Apple of abusing its dominance to benefit itself.

      It also told that Apple sent the letter as a "distraction" from privacy concerns that emerged last week after a series of Mac computers had difficulties opening apps.

      "The truth is Apple has expanded its business into advertising and through its upcoming iOS 14 changes is trying to move the free internet into paid apps and services where they profit," Facebook said.

      "As a result, they are using their dominant market position to self-preference their own data collection while making it nearly impossible for their competitors to use the same data. They claim it's about privacy, but it's about profit," the statement read.

      "This is all part of a transformation of Apple's business away from innovative hardware products to data-driven software and media."
