A Raspberry Pi 4 functioning as a desktop computer.

Raspberry Pi Foundation

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.

How does the Raspberry Pi 4 fare on paper when compared to the previous model? We’ve got you covered with our Raspberry Pi 4 vs Raspberry Pi 3 Model 3B+ rundown.

Horsepower

In terms of sheer power, the Raspberry Pi 4 is a major step up from its predecessor, offering four heavy lifting Cortex-A72 CPU cores compared to the older model’s four Cortex-A53 cores.

15 Months of Fresh Hell Inside Facebook

Posted by Ken S. on April 16, 2019 in General Tech |

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 has a tradition of hosting a dinner at the World Economic Forum, where he regales tycoons, ministers, and journalists with his thoughts about the state of the world. That night he began by warning in his quiet, shaking Hungarian accent about nuclear war and climate change. Then he 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.”

GoPro Hero 6 vs GoPro Hero 5, is it worth the upgrade?

Posted by Ken S. on December 29, 2017 in General Tech |

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.

Apple in Tokyo is preparing to sell its new watch

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.”

Why Cutting 18,000 Jobs Was Likely Microsoft’s Plan All Along

Posted by Ken S. on July 18, 2014 in General Infomation, General Tech, Windwos |

Satya Nadella, Microsoft. 2014-01

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.
