The Raspberry Pi 4 was announced on Monday, and it represents a massive leap in capabilities compared to previous models. It’s crazy to think the original model only had a single-core processor, 256MB of RAM, and one USB slot.

The streets of
Davos, Switzerland, were iced over on the night of January 25, 2018,
which added a slight element of danger to the prospect of trekking to
the Hotel Seehof for George Soros’ annual banquet. The aged financier

shifted to his next idea of a global menace: Google and Facebook.
“Mining and oil companies exploit the physical environment; social
media companies exploit the social environment,” he said. “The owners of
the platform giants consider themselves the masters of the universe,
but in fact they are slaves to preserving their dominant position …
Davos is a good place to announce that their days are numbered.” Read more...

The GoPro Hero 6 is here. It’s new, it’s shiny, and it’s $100 more expensive than the old one. But is it worth the upgrade? The GoPro Hero 5 was something of a disappointment for many. Sure, it had built in waterproofing and touchscreen. But beyond those, it did really seem to offer all that much over the GoPro Hero 4 Black.
So how does the GoPro Hero 6 compare? This video, from the folks over at Vistek, puts the new Hero 6 head-to-head with its predecessor, the GoPro Hero 5 to see if it’s really worth upgrading.

Travis Jeffery is a software developer who’s been using a database system called FoundationDB for a project at his startup. Earlier this week, he noticed that the software had been pulled from the web. He soon received a terse email confirming that the software had been taken down intentionally, but little else. “We have made the decision to evolve our company mission,” it read. “And as of today, we will no longer offer downloads.” Read more...
Microsoft will slash up to 18,000 jobs by the end of the year. That’s 14 percent of the company’s workforce, and it amounts to the largest round of layoffs in the nearly 40 year history of the software kingpin.
On Thursday morning, with an email euphemistically titled “Starting to Evolve Our Organization and Culture,” CEO Satya Nadella announced that the bulk of the cuts would affect employees working for Nokia, the mobile phone company Microsoft acquired last September. According to Nadella, these cuts would encourage “work simplification,” “integration synergies,” and “strategic alignment.” But even the heavy-handed business jargon couldn’t mask the simple fact that 18,000 jobs is a hell of a lot of jobs to lose.
