Chip Shortage Might Last Until 2023 — Intel CEO

The ongoing chip shortage might last all the way until 2023. That is the expectation of Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger. His statement comes as laptop sales have slowed down, which is partly caused by chip shortage. Component shortages have also been a factor in the dip in laptop sales for Intel. The growth in desktop PCs has not been enough to compensate for the dip. The laptop industry is just one of the many industries around the world that have been affected by the chip shortage. Production and sales of vehicles and gaming consoles have also taken a hit due to the shortage. Chip Shortage Might Last Until 2023 MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA MAY 21: CEO of VMware, Patrick P. Gelsinger clicked during a photo shoot in Mumbai. The ongoing chip shortage might last until 2023, according to Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger. According to a report by The Verge, Gelsinger said in a CNBC interview that "We're in the worst of it now; every quarter next year, we'll get incrementally better, but they're not going to have supply-demand balance until 2023." For AMD and NVIDIA, the expectation is that the situation regarding the chip shortage will get better by next year, which is better than what Intel is predicting. Intel Laptop Sales Dip The Verge notes in its report that Intel experienced a 5% drop in the sale of its notebooks. It is, however, not to be blamed solely on the ongoing chip shortage. The company has attributed the slow down to what is being referred to as "notebook ecosystem constraints." What this simply means is there are not enough laptop parts or components. According to the Intel CEO, "We call it match sets, where we may have the CPU, but you don't have the LCD, or you don't have the Wi-Fi." Gelsinger notes that data centers are encountering difficulties when it comes to power chips, as well as ethernet chips. The Verge points out that there has been a 20% growth in revenue gains of desktop PCs. The growth, however, does not compensate for the dip in laptop sales. The growth in desktop sales has also already slowed down as more people return to offices and schools. The Ongoing Chip Shortage The ongoing chip shortage has affected various industries around the world and slowed down the production of different electronic products around the world. Among those who took a hit in their production and sales are vehicles and gaming consoles. The chip shortage has caused some car companies to shut down some of their plants temporarily. An example of this is General Motors (GM), which temporarily shut down its plants in North America and Mexico last month. The PlayStation 5 has also been hit by the chip shortage. It was reported early this year that Sony has been struggling with supplying the different components of the gaming console.

Jupiter hit by another space rock in rare views captured by Japanese skywatchers



It's tough to be the biggest planet in the solar system, and this fall Jupiter is taking a beating. On Friday (Oct. 15), skywatchers in Japan observed a flash in the atmosphere of the planet's northern hemisphere likely caused by an asteroid slamming into Jupiter, just over a month after a skywatcher in Brazil made a similar observation. "The flash felt like it was shining for a very long time to me," Twitter user @yotsuyubi21, who photographed the flash with a Celestron C6 telescope, told Space.com. See more They confirmed the observation with a team led by Ko Arimatsu, an astronomer at Japan's Kyoto University who takes part in the Organized Autotelescopes for Serendipitous Event Survey (OASES) project. According to a tweet posted by the project, that observation included two different types of light, visible and infrared, giving Jupiter an eerie pink glow. Jupiter regularly experiences such impacts because of the powerful gravitational tug associated with its mass: Smaller objects, like the asteroids that litter the solar system, can easily end up pulled into the planet's thick, turbulent atmosphere. Some research suggests that objects at least 150 feet (45 meters) across hit Jupiter every few months on average, although observational constraints mean that even the most thorough monitoring program might be able to catch just one impact or so per year.According to Sky & Telescope, the Oct. 15 flash hit the planet's North Tropical Zone, near the southern edge of the North Temperate Belt. Observers aren't yet sure whether the impact left a debris field that scientists can monitor; the September flash did not, and several factors including the object's size and the impact's location factor into observability. ...

Tesla confirms new Cybertruck prototypes, gives hope on its timeline

Tesla has given an update on the Cybertruck – confirming that it has new prototypes and giving some hope on the timeline to production. Cybertruck is Tesla’s most anticipated product, and buyers have been disappointed after the automaker delayed production to “late 2022”. During Tesla’s Q3 2021 earnings release, the automaker was asked to give an update on the electric pickup truck. Lars Moravy, Vice President of Vehicle Engineering at Tesla, confirmed that the automaker has produced “a number of alpha Cybertruck prototypes”: “As you may have seen recently in social media, we’ve built a number of alphas and are currently testing those to further mature the design.” Moravy is referring to the new Cybertruck prototype that was spotted in California earlier this week. The engineering executive confirmed that it featured rear steering and teased some “less visible improvements”: “And while those point out a few key additions, like rear steering, there are also a number of smaller or less visible improvements though the product is largely true to the initial vision. We’ll continue to work through the product in the beta stages that we’re in now and look to launch that by next year.” Note that Moravy said that the vehicle would launch “next year”. Tesla has moved away from mentioning that the electric pickup truck would come “late” next year and instead, it now reverted to talking about the truck coming after Model Y at Gigafactory Texas. The automaker wrote in its shareholders letter yesterday: “We are making progress on the industrialization of Cybertruck, which is currently planned for Austin production subsequent to Model Y.” Tesla aims to start production of the Model Y at Gigafactory Texas by the end of the year. However, Elon Musk, who wasn’t on the call yesterday, has previously indicated that Tesla wouldn’t move to Cybertruck production until it manages to ramp up Model Y production at the new factory. As the CEO admits himself, it’s hard to predict a production ramp, and therefore, late 2022 could still be the timeline for the Cybertruck.

Apple MacBook Air 2022 Speculations: M2 Chip, White Bezels, New Keyboard, iMac Colors, and MORE

Apple MacBook Air 2022 has new speculations for its next release, and it would bring a lot of upgrades to the PC laptop like the ones that the latest MacBook Pro with the M1X and M1 Max has gotten. Yes, the thinner bezels and notch will befall the MacBook Air 2022, as well as the speculated M2 chip that would upgrade from the current release now. Apple MacBook Air 2022 Speculations Apple MacBook Air 2022 has plenty of speculations that are rising now, and it is from a highly trusted leaker called "Dylandkt" that has had several of their predictions come true for Apple devices. Now, the popular leaker was involved in new speculation for an Apple product, and it is with the new MacBook Air 2022 that would come with an upgrade next year. Dylandkt has prepared a thread for the upgrades of the next MacBook Air that would come in the middle of next year, as well as it would feature the upgraded Silicon SoC with the M2. The leaker said that people should expect it to look like the MacBook Pro's recent October 18 release but would still be thinner, lighter, and would have white accents on the bezels. The notch would also come for the new MacBook Air 2022, as well as a MagSafe charger apart from its USB-C ports. It was not mentioned by the leaker if it would have the HDMI ports and other important connectors of the laptop from Apple, like the MacBook Pro. Dylandkt also said that people should expect that the device would have more colors like the 2021 iMac with the M1, something that would make Air users have more options to choose from.

Next MacBook Air to Feature Off-White Bezels and Keyboard, M2 Chip, USB-C Ports Only, MagSafe, and i

The next-generation MacBook Air will have several features that are adopted from the upcoming MacBook Pro models, according to leaker Dylandkt, who has a track record of providing accurate details about Apple's plans. Upcoming ¿MacBook Air¿ models will have a design that's "quite similar" to the new MacBook Pros, but with a thinner body, off-white bezels, and no wedge shape. It will come in color options that are similar to the 24-inch iMac, which we've heard rumored before. According to the leaker, the keyboard will be the same off-white shade as the bezels, and it will feature full-size function keys and a 1080p webcam. The machine will have no SD card slot or HDMI port, which, along with the design, will distinguish it from the MacBook Pro models. The ¿MacBook Air¿ will use a next-generation M2 chip, a followup to the M1. It is not expected to be as powerful as the ¿M1¿ Pro and ¿M1¿ Max as it will be aimed at lower-power devices. Prior rumors have indicated that the ¿M2¿ chip will have the same number of computing cores (eight) but nine or 10 graphics cores instead of seven or eight. Apple is said to be designing a 30W power adapter for the new machine, and it is said to have no fans inside, much like the current ¿M1¿ ¿MacBook Air¿. Other leaks have suggested that the new MacBook will include a notch at the front like the MacBook Pro, which perhaps makes sense if it's going to have a 1080p webcam and MacBook Pro-style design. At the same time, it would be an unusual design choice with white bezels. The ¿MacBook Air¿ may include a mini-LED display, but Dylandkt says that ProMotion technology will not be included. A name change could also potentially be in the works, with Apple allegedly considering just "MacBook." Rumors suggest the next-generation ¿MacBook Air¿ will be released in mid to late 2022.

Sony Patent Allegedly Allows Stream Viewers To Kick Players Out Mid-Game

Sony has filed a patent which seems to allow stream viewers on Twitch or any other platforms to actually kick the players they're watching mid-game. The Sony logo is displayed at an entrance of the company's headquarters in Tokyo on February 3, 2021. The patent, which was reported on by PC Gamer, was filed at the United States Patent and Trademark Office and is officially called "Spectators Vote To Bench Players In A Video Game." You can check out the official page for the patent itself, which is clearly filed by Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc. With the Sony patent, stream viewers will be able to remove players even in the heat of the action either by vote or by simply paying for it. According to the filing, streaming platforms such as Twitch have gained the interest of more and more people. As such, Sony apparently wanted to "enhance" these viewers' experience by offering them "increased functionality and interactivity." Aside from potentially benching the actual Twitch streamers, Sony is also enabling viewers to send players messages if they, say, want them to improve, writes IGN. This illustration picture taken on July 24, 2019 in Paris shows the US live streaming video platform Twitch logo application on the screen of a tablet. A streamer can only be kicked out if the vote reaches a consensus, like 60% of all those watching. There's also allegedly a "weighting system" which would give even more power to viewers who are classified as more skilled spectators, as per the original IGN report. Viewers can earn the "skilled spectator" title based on factors like personal stats, accomplishments, and in-game level in the specific game that they're watching live. As for the "paying to kick somebody out" part of the patent, viewers can choose to pay a fee that could be preset or auctioned. Potential accepted payments could range from real money to in-game currency, or even cryptocurrency, reports Eurogamer. What Happens To The Streamer Voted To Be Kicked? As per the original PC Gamer report, the penalty for the player voted out could depend entirely on the game they're playing. They could be kicked off the server completely, have their controls disabled, or perhaps even moved to a new group of players where they're "a better match." ...

Sony Patent Allegedly Allows Stream Viewers To Kick Players Out Mid-Game

We're all abuzz over the announcement of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. Thanks to a prolific leak cycle, we more or less knew everything about them already, but with official confirmation of both specs and price, we can start to get officially excited — and officially annoyed. The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro represent the biggest gap in functionality between Google device sizes since Pixels have been around, and I'm really not here for it. The market has spoken, and people love big phones. Personally, I don't: I like my mobile tech to be as easy to carry around as possible, and if I'm consuming media, I'm probably on my couch or at my desk, where bigger and better screens are available. While the non-Pro Pixel 6 isn't entirely unwieldy — with a 6.4-inch display, it's right around the size of the Galaxy A52, which I liked just fine — it's unequivocally a big phone, bumping up against how large it can be before deciding whether I want to take it out of my pocket becomes an equation. Will I be able to do what I'm trying to do one-handed? Will I have to set my drink down to avoid dropping this phone? The Pixel 6 is definitely big, but, well, less big. The 6 Pro, on the other hand, is well past that point. It's got a 6.7-inch display, and its footprint is within just a couple milimeters of the notoriously chunky Galaxy S21 Ultra. It's a giant phone. If that's what you're into, fantastic! I'm not saying you're wrong, and I'm happy you can now buy the enormous Google phone of your dreams. For the Pixel line's entire history, though, feature parity between sizes has been a given. Sure, the XL models have always had larger batteries and displays — that's inevitable. There was also that Pixel 2 snafu that, due to supplier differences, saw the smaller model sporting a higher-quality display. But this year, Google has, for the first time, drawn a clear line: the larger Pixel is functionally better, full stop. The name — 6 Pro — and the pricing — a $300 jump between models — also make that intention abundantly clear. If the Pro's added bulk is a deal-breaker for you, you're missing out on kind of a lot. The Pro has a 120Hz display; the regular Pixel 6 is 90Hz. The Pro has 12 gigabytes of RAM where the lesser model has eight. But the biggest bummer for me is in that awkward camera bar: the 48-megapixel 4x telephoto shooter the Pro has is nowhere to be found on the smaller phone, and I can't help but be disappointed. I'm much more likely to want to zoom in with a telephoto camera than "zoom out" with an ultrawide. (I do realize this is far from a universally held view.) ...

Walmart Quietly Kicks Off Pilot Program Allowing Users to Buy Cryptocurrency At Coinstar Kiosks

HALLANDALE BEACH, FLORIDA - MAY 18: People wearing protective masks walk from a Walmart store on May 18, 2021 in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Walmart announced that customers who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will not need to wear a mask in its stores, unless one is required by state or local laws. The announcement came after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask or stay 6 feet apart from others in most cases, whether indoors or outdoors. On Thursday, Oct.21, Walmart spokesperson Molly Blakeman said that the initiative from the company had started earlier this October, according to a Bloomberg report. With the help of Coinstar, the shoppers could now exchange cryptocurrency for paper bills and even gift cards. Coinstar, a popular company for its coin-cashing machines, sought a partnership with the digital currency exchange Coinme. Together, the collaboration aims to build Bitcoin ATMs for over 8,000 kiosks. In the meantime, Walmart has included 200 kiosks in its recent pilot test. According to BitOoda chief strategy officer Sam Doctor, Bitcoin ATMs have been used previously in some supermarkets in the US. The cryptocurrency brokerage's head of research added that the retailer is preparing to roll out more Bitcoin services soon. This would also lessen the doubts of those who are skeptical about Bitcoin's legibility. Walmart's Fake Crypto Deal Before the pilot test for Coinstar kiosks started, Walmart had been a subject of crypto hoax last month, Reuters reported on Friday, Oct.22. At that time, a fake release announced that the company was done dealing with Litecoin. Later, it was confirmed that the news about the partnership was bogus. Walmart said that it would continue to explore cryptocurrency in some of its future missions. For the shoppers to access the Bitcoin ATMs, they should first have a Coinme account and successfully pass the test to redeem the voucher. Moreover, the Bitcoin option would charge the user at 4%. On the other hand, the cash exchange fee will be 7%, according to CoinDesk. While the massive rollout of crypto ATMs continues, there are still some concerns about using them. According to DigitalMint's compliance director Seth Sattler, money laundering could arise in this adoption. Furthermore, scammers and money mules could likely surface to victimize some users, especially those who have just started exploring cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency ATMs Are All Over the World In May, Tech Times reported that 355 new crypto ATMs were launched across the United States. Bitcoin Depot wanted to spread its service in 40 states in the country. The same firm said that 155 crypto machines were launched back in March. Before being allowed to use the ATM, the user should have a phone number as part of the verification process. ...

Fast-growing Specialist British Software Engineering Recruiting Firm Opens First US Office in Miami

One of the U.K.'s fastest-growing recruiting and staffing firms has opened its first office outside of Europe in Miami, Fl. The move by London and Berlin-based develop will enable the company to seize the opportunities being created by the rapidly growing tech scene and explosive demand for talent across the Miami region. The move comes on the back of significant growth for the business across Europe's biggest tech hubs of London and Berlin over the last 12 months - the second and fourth fastest-growing tech hubs in the world, respectively. Joey Tait, Managing Director at develop, said of the launch: "Miami has long drawn investors and tech founders, but the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the pace at which this is taking place. "This has not only resulted in a wave of fast-growing, innovative and exciting companies relocating and establishing their new headquarters here, it has also attracted a wealth of talent too." Report finds Miami-based software engineers are frustrated at poor service from existing recruiting firms; thereby, causing frustration among job seekers and lost career opportunities: In anticipation of their first entry into the US market, develop conducted an extensive market research project that analyzed the state of the software engineering market in Miami - the results of which reconfirmed the company's belief in the opportunity open to them by establishing a base in the city. Accordingly, 88% of software engineers in Miami and the wider city area are open to considering new opportunities, but their experience of working with headhunters to date has been a poor one. As many as 95% of Miami's software engineers with less than three years experience in the field report having had a negative experience with a headhunter - 44% said this has happened more than once. This number dips slightly for those with four or more years' experience, but only marginally (81%). The biggest complaints reported by software engineers at all levels include taking too long to both find a suitable role and make the placement (42.5%), a lack of industry knowledge among the headhunters themselves (36%) and a low level of knowledge about the roles they are recruiting for (36%). This is not isolated to candidates only. develop's research also showed that 83% of business leaders and senior management who are responsible for hiring software engineers for their organizations have also had a bad experience when working with headhunters. "The results of our research are not intended to paint a gloomy picture as to the state of headhunting within the tech sector in Miami," Joey explained. "Rather, we believe this is an opportunity to raise the standards of how software engineer resourcing is conducted by bringing our unique brand of recruitment to the market in Miami. ...

The Boring Co. Tunnel is Expanding the Vegas Loop with 29 Miles More, 51 Stations; Clark County Give

The Boring Company is going back to Nevada and continuing the Vegas Loop after Clark County green lights the project, putting 29 miles more to the tunnels and having as many as 51 stations soon. The Vegas loop is one of the earliest projects of the company, and it has been a success that is expanding now into different places in the state. Vegas Loop is Expanding in Clark County Clark County is the next stop of the Vegas Loop, and it would be fulfilled by The Boring Company to dig underneath and pave the way for the Tesla EVs to move around and avoid traffic. The venture would pick up on The Boring Co.'s special project in Las Vegas, where it has already made 10 miles worth of tunnel underneath the Sin City. This is a massive venture for the state of Nevada, as it would have one of the most expansive tunnel systems in the country, especially as it is to be run by environment-friendly Tesla EVs. Moreover, it would ease the traffic in the state and help more people to get around places in the most efficient way. The Boring Company Tunnels: 29 Miles More, 51 Stations in Total According to The Boring Co.'s Twitter page, there would be a total of 29 miles and 51 stations in the project's expansion of the Vegas Loop. This pickups from the 10 miles worth of tunnel that runs underneath Las Vegas. This is currently the largest tunnel system that The Boring Company has made, and it would benefit the citizens and visitors of Nevada, as it interconnects them from the airport to the different parts of the county. The Boring Company Tunnels Are Famous in the Other States Outside Nevada The Boring Company has been a proprietor in the tunnel system that focuses on employing electric vehicles underneath the surface to transport people and their needs to different places. This means that it would not need to build tracks like trains, and the sister company of Boring, Tesla, can readily bring electric vehicles for its tunnel. The vehicles would be driverless, and it would only be fitting because it would drive on a set road already, without having to worry much about upcoming traffic. Moreover, it would use Tesla's FSD and Autopilot to go around the different stations that are offered. ...

Missouri Governor Threatens Legal Action Against Reporter Who Found Vulnerability in State Website



Missouri Governor Mike Parson has threatened legal action against a report and a newspaper that found a vulnerability in a state website. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter disclosed a website's security vulnerability that led to social security numbers of teachers and educational staff members easily accessible by anyone who knew how. Due to the vulnerability, anyone could have had access to the social security numbers by simply right-clicking and then choosing Inspect Element or View Source. Governor Parson, in return, called the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter a "hacker" whose actions were described as "decoding the HTML source code," according to a report. Missouri Governor Threatens Legal Action Against Report Missouri Governor Mike Parson has threatened legal action against the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and its reporter, who disclosed a security vulnerability in a state website. According to a report by The Verge, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch "notified the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) that one of its tools was returning HTML pages that contained employee SSNs, potentially putting the information of over 100,000 employees at risk." "While the reporter followed standard protocols for disclosing and reporting on the vulnerability, the governor is treating him as if he attacked the site or was trying to access the teacher's private information for nefarious purposes," The Verge added. For his efforts, the reporter had been called a "hacker" by Governor Parson, who also said the county prosecutor and investigators would be involved. Governor Parson also said, per The Verge report, that the whole incident could cost the state and its taxpayers $50 million. The report, however, notes that it would have been more expensive for the government had a hacker actually accessed the social security numbers available due to the security vulnerability. Security Vulnerability in DESE Site Per the report of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that was cited by The Verge, the tool that contained the vulnerability "was designed to let the public see teachers' credentials." The vulnerability in the tool meant that the page also included the social security number of the person whose credentials are being viewed, which could be accessed by anyone who knows how to right-click and then choose Inspect Element or View Source. Governor Parson insisted that the DESE's website does not give users permission to access social security numbers of teachers and staff members, but The Verge report notes that "it was being freely provided." There have been multiple instances in the past wherein a security vulnerability could have or has actually led to private data being accessed by hackers. A recent example of which is the Microsoft Azure security vulnerability called OMIGOD. ...

Squid Game Knock-Offs Are Taking Over GTA 5 Servers



Netflix’s Squid Game has taken the world by storm, and now it’s taking over Grand Theft Auto V role-playing servers. GTA fans are recreating the show’s grim children’s games across the streets of Los Santos. Winners get big cash prizes while the losers get sued into oblivion by Take-Two. Just kidding, that’s a joke. Mostly. Squid Game is about desperate people risking their lives to compete in absurd mini-games for a shot at a slightly less immiserated life. In other words, it sounds like a perfect fit for Rockstar’s sociopathic sandox about killing people to get rich and then feeling empty inside. As reported by Gamesradar, GTA 5 fans have started using mods and making online servers recreating specific contests from the South Korean survival drama, like the infamous Red Light, Green Light. In one version of Squid Game’s opening challenge recreated in GTA 5, a group of players have to cross a field while another gives orders over a mic, with a third group sitting ready to shoot anyone who messes up. Players have inserted other elements from the show as well, including its terrifying robot doll, the glass stepping stones game, and even the contestants’ sleeping quarters maze. GTA YouTuber Vadact showed off some of these recreations in a recent video—at first glance it would be easy to confuse them with a full-fledged mod for the surprise Netflix hit. Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos announced at the beginning of the month that Squid Game, pop culture’s latest unsettling parody of class warfare on the poor, had already become its most popular show ever. It’s since blown up in Tik-Tok memes and the Roblox community. Now Netflix itself is preparing to merchandize the shit out of it. The Korean Cultural Center in the United Arab Emirates is even set to perform a reenactment of it in Abu Dhabi, a city with a track record of exploited worker camps. Given Netflix’s recent play to get into the games business, it’s probably only a matter of time before we start getting official adaptations of Squid Game, though none of them will be as fitting a backdrop as San Andreas.

SpaceX's private Inspiration4 crew gets their astronaut wings



The four private space travelers who soared into orbit on SpaceX's historic Inspiration4 mission last month officially have their astronaut wings. The civilian crew, which rode a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft into orbit on Sept. 15 and returned to Earth three days later, received their astronaut wings from the company on Friday (Oct. 1) in a presentation at SpaceX's headquarters in Hawthorne, California. "Yesterday we were presented with our SpaceX astronaut wings," Inspiration4 astronaut Hayley Arceneaux, the mission's medical officer, wrote in a Twitter post Saturday. "This beautiful symbol of our journey means everything to me! Also if it looks like I'm crying, mind your business." Photos: SpaceX's Inspiration4 mission in pictures Arceneaux wasn't alone in her jubilation. "I cried when I got my wings!" Sian Proctor, a geoscientist and space communicator who served as the Inspiration4 crew's pilot on the mission, wrote on Twitter. SpaceX's astronaut wings pin has a Crew Dragon capsule at its center from which emerge a dragon's head and wings. The back is inscribed with each crewmember's name, call sign and mission role. Inspiration4 was a three-day commercial space mission financed by American entrepreneur and billionaire Jared Isaacman, who bought four seats to orbit on a SpaceX Dragon and Falcon 9 rocket. Isaacman donated three of the seats to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer research by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
