    Capitalism: In China each company is now masks trader
    • You will be surprised how many medium to small companies who did various complex things now either resell masks (at 10-30x price frequently) or quickly make them (without proper equipment and hygiene requirements). Big money are at stake.

      Btw, same firms not so long ago had been mining crypto currencies.

    Monopolies: Google will attack Amazon
    • Google can apparently revoke the software licenses from Android TV makers if they also make devices running certain forked versions of its operating system, including Amazon Fire TV. Google’s licensing terms for Android reportedly dictate that those TV makers would no longer be able to run the Play Store and Google apps on any devices they make, including phones and tablets.

      Google’s strict licensing terms could be potentially disastrous for TV makers who also make smartphones that run Android, like LG or Samsung.

      This is how monopolies act and this is why Google must be killed.

    Samsung human centric leds, intersting
    • image

      Samsung Electronics, a world leader in advanced digital component solutions, today unveiled its first “human-centric” LED packages, collectively known as LM302N. Engineered with carefully created light spectra, the LM302N family helps human bodies adjust melatonin levels indoors, making people feel more energetic or relaxed depending on their daily life patterns.

      “The benefits of using Samsung’s LM302N reach beyond the basic lighting function of visual recognition, by improving the non-visual biological effects of lighting on people,” said Un Soo Kim, senior vice president of LED Business Team at Samsung Electronics. “Our LED solutions are ushering in a whole new human-oriented approach of using artificial lighting to enhance productivity and relaxation, benefitting modern-day indoor lifestyles.”

      Melatonin, a hormone which regulates the sleep-wake cycle, responds to the cyan wavelength range of light. Brighter cyan-concentrated lighting suppresses the body’s production of melatonin, increasing concentration and enabling a greater overall sense of alertness. Similarly, a lower cyan light intensity minimizes disturbances to the natural onset of the body’s melatonin production, helping to promote sleep quality.

      Samsung’s LM302N utilizes precisely designed light spectra with optimized amounts of cyan to accommodate lighting needs to the extent desired at any given point in time: the LM302N DAY improves alertness and the LM302N NITE enhances relaxation. Standardized at 3.0×3.0mm, these offerings can fit in a wide range of lighting fixtures and are protected against humidity and heat.

      The LM302N DAY can suppress the body’s melatonin level more than 18 percent below that of conventional LED lighting. Available in a variety of color temperatures from 3000K to 6500K, the DAY package can be used in a diverse range of indoor applications, such as schools, offices, libraries and industrial sites, to enhance an individual’s sense of awakeness and energy level.

      What is interesting here?

      A lot, actually. If we do partial reduction of green peak to already good CRI 95-97 led lights we can reach CRI 99+ across all measured colors.

    Microsoft and Modern Standby
    • ...The system stays in the active mode (with the screen off) for a longer interval of time. These longer active intervals occur for a variety of reasons, for example, processing incoming email or downloading critical Windows updates. Windows components that are allowed to leave the SoC in the active power state are called activators because they are registered with the power manager as capable of blocking the transition back to the idle power mode. The durations of these activities vary widely but are controlled to extend battery life.

      Switching between S3 and Modern Standby cannot be done by changing a setting in the BIOS. Switching the power model is not supported in Windows without a complete OS re-install.

      It is small modern "invention" by Microsoft, so they will be able to send big packets of collected info to OS owners and be able to install most OS updates even if you are unaware. As you can see above - system is made to prevent ability to switch such behavior off. So, remember to always go into hibernation mode if you go to presentation or similar thing, as otherwise you can suddenly see nonfunctioning computer.
