Apple News:UK dead-set on 10-year sentences for P2P pirates | Ars Technica

UK dead-set on 10-year sentences for P2P pirates | Ars TechnicaThe UK government has confirmed that it wants to bring in legislation increasing the maximum sentence for online copyright infringement to 10 years of imprisonment, despite widespread objections and doubts about its feasibility.
No jailtime for the banksters in the City of London, ever, but download a shitty song and go to prison for 10 years. That sounds just about right, doesn't it Mr. Orwell?

Apple News:Amazon Prime Video has 4 times as many movies as Netflix - Business Insider

Amazon Prime Video has 4 times as many movies as Netflix - Business Insider: "Research last month showed that since January 2014, the number of titles available on Netflix in the US has shrunk by 31.7%. This was particularly pronounced in movies, where Netflix's selection had gone down by over 2,000 titles.
Really only relevant in the US because AFAIK Amazon Prime Canada has no streaming vids to speak of. Megalomania at its most entertaining.

Apple News:Apple's mysterious WWDC 2016 announcement: What does it mean?

Apple's mysterious WWDC 2016 announcement: What does it mean?: "For as long as Apple has designed creative invitations to its media events, geeks have treated them as the technical equivalent of a Rorschach test. What secret clues might Apple have hidden in the latest WWDC missive? Probably nothing."

Past big ideas at a conference meant to stimulate big ideas.

Apple News:Apple to adopt AMD's new Polaris graphics chips in upcoming Macs - report

Apple to adopt AMD's new Polaris graphics chips in upcoming Macs - reportSeveral sources have claimed that an OEM design win AMD secured last year was indeed for Apple, according to WCCFTech. Apple currently uses AMD graphics cards in the Mac Pro, 27-inch iMacs, and the highest-end configurations of the MacBook Pro. The Polaris 10 is believed to be best-suited to iMacs, while the Polaris 11 could make its way into MacBook Pros.

On a per-watt ratio, the new chips are expected to be about twice as fast as their predecessors, thanks largely to a smaller 14-nanometer FinFET architecture. For comparison, Samsung versions of the Apple A9 processor — used in the iPhone 6s and SE — are also based on a 14-nanometer process.
FinFET originally invented by a Hitachi researcher who further developed his ideas while visiting UC Berkeley in the late 90s.

History of FinFET at YouTube.

It's a Mac to go with your Manolo Blahniks and Moschino dress. Spreadsheets? What's that?
