RedmiBook 14 с Intel Core i7 10-го поколения представят 29 августа [Aug. 25th, 2019|08:30 am]
syn_ixbt_hard

Известный индийский инсайдер Мукул Шарма (Mukul Sharma) опубликовал интересную информацию о мероприятии Redmi, которое запланировано на 29 августа этого года.

Напомним, звездами пресс-конференции должны стать смартфоны Redmi Note 8 и Redmi Note 8 Pro. Возможно, также покажут младшую модель линейки под названием Redmi 8. Кроме того, в этот день компания представит свой первый умный телевизор Redmi TV с экраном диагональю 70 дюймов.

Новый официальный рекламный баннер, который был опубликован компанией Redmi, подтверждает, что 29 августа производитель готовится анонсировать новую версию ноутбука RedmiBook 14, которая будет оснащена процессором Intel Core i7 уже 10-го поколения.

Также потенциальным покупателям будут предложены новые цветовые варианты RedmiBook 14.

Helio G90T получит только Redmi Note 8 Pro, стандартной версии Redmi Note 8 досталась SoC Snapdragon 665 [Aug. 25th, 2019|08:17 am]
syn_ixbt_hard

Известный индийский сетевой информатор Мукул Шарма (Mukul Sharma) опубликовал на своей страничке в Twitter новый официальный баннер смартфона Redmi Note 8.

При помощи данного изображения компания Redmi подтвердила, что стандартная версия Redmi Note 8 будет оснащена однокристальной системой Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. Ранее предполагалось, что игровая SoC MediaTek Helio G90T будет установлена в Redmi Note 8 и Redmi Note 8 Pro, однако в итоге оказалось, что она достанется только старшей модели данной линейки.

Теперь отличий между Redmi Note 8 и Redmi Note 8 Pro еще больше. Напомним, 64-мегапиксельная камера, которую так рекламирует Redmi, также должна достаться только модели Redmi Note 8 Pro, тогда как пользователи Redmi Note 8 получит основную камеру разрешением 48 Мп. Очевидно, что и разница в цене должна быть ощутимой.

Сегодня мы уже публиковали метаданные фотографии разрешением 64 Мп, которая сделана на камеру Redmi Note 8 Pro. Ее размер составляет практически 23 Мп.

Официальный анонс Redmi Note 8 и Redmi Note 8 Pro состоится на следующей неделе, 29 августа.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super отменяется [Aug. 25th, 2019|08:15 am]
syn_ixbt_hard

Новости о том, что Nvidia готовит 3D-карту GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super, зациркулировали с новой силой после того, как в приложении AIDA64 появилось упоминание перспективной модели GeForce RTX T10-8 на топовом GPU TU102. Логично было предположить, что коммерческим обозначением этой модели будет как раз GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super.

Но оказалось, что никакой GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super не будет, а под обозначением GeForce RTX T10-8 скрывается совсем другая модель. Эта самая модель обнаружилась в игровом стриминговом сервисе GeForce Now: некоторые пользователи, входившие в него, отмечали упоминание RTX T10-8. Иными словами, речь идет отнюдь не о пользовательской модели – устройство предназначено для серверов, обеспечивающих работу облачного сервиса. В таком случае GeForce RTX T10-8 с большой долей вероятности войдет в состав линейки 3D-карт RTX Tesla.

Конечно, это вовсе не значит, что GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super отменяется окончательно и бесповоротно, но на данный момент на ее существование нет никаких явных или неявных указаний. Так что если новый пользовательский флагман Nvidia и выйдет, то совсем не скоро.

108-мегапиксельный смартфон Xiaomi получит вспомогательные датчики разрешением 16 и 12 Мп [Aug. 25th, 2019|08:03 am]
syn_ixbt_hard

Очень хорошо зарекомендовавший себя сетевой информатор под ником Xiaomishka, который активно публикует достоверные сведения о новых устройствах Xiaomi и Redmi, предоставил сведения о камере Xiami Mi Mix 4.

Согласно информации этого источника, в основной камере будет три модуля, включая главный, оснащенный датчиком изображения Samsung, разрешение которого составит 108 Мп. Сверхширокоугольная камера будет оснащена 16-мегапиксельным датчиком изображения. Дополнять картинку будет 12-мегапиксельная камера с перископным телеобъективом.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 выйдет под другим названием. Xiaomi больше не может использовать торговую марку Mix

Не стоит забывать о том, что Xiaomi больше не имеет права использовать торговую марку Mix в названии своих новых продуктов, поэтому Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 с высокой долей вероятности выйдет под другим названием.

108-мегапиксельная новинка Samsung должна в течение нескольких месяцев быть единственным на рынке смартфоном с таким датчиком изображения. Позже он должен появиться в смартфонах линейки Samsung Galaxy S11.

До 23 МБ на снимок. Появились метаданные 64-мегапиксельной фотографии с Redmi Note 8 Pro [Aug. 25th, 2019|07:50 am]
syn_ixbt_hard

Пару недель назад компания Xiaomi представила первую 64-мегапиксельную камеру для смартфонов, заявив, что она дебютирует в смартфоне Redmi Note 8 Pro.

На тот момент сообщалось, что сделанный этим смартфоном снимок в максимальном разрешении будет иметь размер около 19 МБ. Затем появилось уточнение, что разрешение 64-мегапиксельных фотографий составит 9248 х 6936 пикселей, а если разделить такое фото на шесть равных кусков, например, двумя вертикальными и одной горизонтально полосой, то получатся снимки разрешением 3082 х 3468 пикселей. То есть шесть кусков, каждый разрешением более 4K.

Вчера мы публиковали фотографию, которая демонстрировала, как 64-мегапискельные фотографии могут использоваться для приближения картинки практически без потери качества. Осведомленные источники позже уточнили, что размер оригинального снимка составил 21 МБ.

Наконец, теперь у нас есть скриншот характеристик фотографии, сделанных на основную камеру Redmi Note 8 Pro в максимальном разреешнии. Мы видим, что размер файла практически достигает 23 МБ.

Учитывая подобный размер фотографий, можно предположить, что самая дешевая версия смартфона с 64 ГБ (если такая выйдет) не будет самой популярной. Впрочем, если у Redmi Note 8 Pro будет слот для карт памяти microSD, то проблем быть не должно и с таким объемом флэш-памяти.

Презентация новинок ожидается 29 августа.

The Facebook Users Who Can't Get Their Accounts Back [Aug. 25th, 2019|04:34 am]

syn_slashdot
"While many users are abandoning Facebook, fed up with what seems like a never-ending series of privacy violations, a small cohort find themselves in the opposite position," reports New York Times enterprise reporter Kashmir Hill. [Alternate source here.] "They've been kicked off the platform, and no matter how hard they try -- and they try really, really hard -- they can't get back on..." In Facebook's version of a justice system, users are told only that their accounts have been disabled for "suspicious activity." If they appeal -- via a terse form that will accept only a name, contact information and an image of an ID -- a mysterious review process begins. The wait can be endless, and the inability to contact a Facebook employee maddening. Increasingly agitated, Facebook castaways turn for help to Twitter, Reddit, Quora, message boards and, well, me. Because I have a history of writing about (and sometimes solving) people's troubles with the platform, profoundly addicted Facebook users have found their way to my inbox, emailing multiple times a day for updates about their cases, which I do not have... With more than 2 billion active members, Facebook has long been criticized for allowing bad actors to proliferate on its platform, from violent extremists to identity thieves. In May, the company announced that it disabled more than 3 billion "fake accounts" over a six-month period. "Our intent is simple: find and remove as many as we can while removing as few authentic accounts as possible," wrote Alex Schultz, Facebook's vice president for analytics, in an accompanying post... But the number of people complaining about disabled Facebook accounts has been going up for years, according to data from the Federal Trade Commission, which tracked three such complaints in 2015, 12 in 2016, and more than 50 in each of the last two years. Once Facebook disables an account, Mr. Schultz wrote, it keeps the person behind it from rejoining by deploying "advanced detection systems" that look for "patterns of using suspicious email addresses, suspicious actions, or other signals previously associated with other fake accounts we've removed...." When Facebook reviewed 14 disabled accounts belonging to users contacted by The New York Times, the company said that just five had been banned with cause. Facebook suggested that the others should simply go through the appeals process again; most did, but none of their accounts have been reactivated so far. According to the article, Facebook's voicemail system tells callers to press one for phone support -- then plays a recording saying "Thank you for calling Facebook user operations. Unfortunately, we do not offer phone support at this time." Then it hangs up.

VW Recalls 679K Cars With Faulty Micro Switch That 'May Roll Away' [Aug. 25th, 2019|03:04 am]

syn_slashdot
"Volkswagen issued a recall Friday of 679,000 vehicles for risk that they may roll away," reports the New York Daily News: Models recalled include certain 2011 through 2019 Beetles and Beetle convertibles, GTIs, Golfs, Golf SportWagens and Jettas that have automatic transmissions, manual hand brakes and keyless entry. "In affected vehicles, a micro switch which indicates the position of the shift lever may fail, allowing the key to be removed from the ignition switch without the shift lever being in the in the "P" Park position," a spokesperson for the German automaker told the Daily News in an email. "If the ignition key is removed without the shift lever being in the "P" Park position, there is a risk the vehicle may roll away, resulting in a crash." The spokesperson added that the company "is not aware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this recall."

'Cheating Volkswagen Diesels Have Become A Hot Commodity' [Aug. 25th, 2019|01:34 am]

syn_slashdot
Remember the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal? "In the end, after paying huge fines and seeing key executives head to prison, VW agreed to buy back nearly 380,000 of the offending cars in the United States, to fix or scrap," reports the New York Times. But this week the director of industry analytics for online car marketplace CarGurus tells them that VW has now added more share in certified pre-owned sales than any other brand. Jalopnik reports: The resulting used VWs are surprisingly compelling, which is why -- according to a report from the New York Times -- people can't get enough of them... That demand, the story says, is driven by the vehicles' impressive fuel economy, the warranty that the government required VW to offer on all re-sold vehicles, and the dearth of other diesel car options on the market... It's an interesting look at how these once vilified automobiles have once again fallen into favor thanks to what what made the vehicles popular in the first place: They are just impressively fuel efficient. Oh, and the government-mandated warranty, too. That helps. Aexecutive analyst at J.D. Power Valuation Services tells the Times that a used VW now costs about the same as a gas model.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Estimate the Cost of an Algorithm Turned Into an ASIC? [Aug. 24th, 2019|11:39 pm]

syn_slashd_hard
"Another coder and I are exploring the possibility of having a video-processing algorithm written in C turned into an ASIC ("Application Specific Integrated Circuit") hardware chip that could go inside various consumer electronics devices," writes Slashdot reader dryriver. The problem? There seems to be very little good information on how much a 20Kb, or 50Kb or indeed a 150Kb algorithm written in the C language would cost to turn in an ASIC or "Custom Chip". We've been told that "the chip-design engineering fees alone would likely start at around $500,000." We've been told "the cost per ASIC will fluctuate wildly depending on whether you are having 50,000 ASICS manufactured or 5 million ASICs manufactured." Is there some rough way to calculate from the source code size of an algorithm -- lets say 100 Kilobytes of C code, or 1000 lines of code -- a rough per-unit estimate of how much the ASIC hardware equivalent might cost to make? Why do we need this? Because we want to pitch our video processing tech to a company that makes consumer products, and they will likely ask us, "So... how many dollars of extra cost will this new video processing chip of yours add to our existing products?" There were some interesting suggestions on the original submission, including the possibility of C to HDL converters or a system on a chip (SoC). But are there any other good alternatives? Leave your own thoughts here in the comments. How do you estimate the cost of an algorithm turned into an ASIC?

UK Cybersecurity Agency Urges Devs To Drop Python 2 [Aug. 24th, 2019|10:45 pm]

syn_slashdot
Python's End-of-Life date is 129 days away, warns the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). "There will be no more bug fixes, or security updates, from Python's core developers." An anonymous reader quotes ZDNet: The UK's cyber-security agency warned developers Thursday to consider moving Python 2.x codebases to the newer 3.x branch due to the looming end-of-life of Python 2, scheduled for January 1, 2020... "If you continue to use unsupported modules, you are risking the security of your organisation and data, as vulnerabilities will sooner or later appear which nobody is fixing." "If you maintain a library that other developers depend on, you may be preventing them from updating to 3," the agency added. "By holding other developers back, you are indirectly and likely unintentionally increasing the security risks of others... If migrating your code base to Python 3 is not possible, another option is to pay a commercial company to support Python 2 for you," the NCSC said. The agency warns that companies who don't invest in migrating their Python 2.x code might end up in the same position as Equifax or the WannaCry victims. "At the NCSC we are always stressing the importance of patching. It's not always easy, but patching is one of the most fundamental things you can do to secure your technology," the agency said. "The WannaCry ransomware provides a classic example of what can happen if you run unsupported software," it said. "By making the decision to continue using Python 2 past its end of life, you are accepting all the risks that come with using unsupported software, while knowing that a secure version is available."

First Alleged Crime In Space? [Aug. 24th, 2019|09:34 pm]

syn_slashdot
bobstreo tipped us off to an interesting story. The BBC reports that NASA "is reported to be investigating a claim that an astronaut accessed the bank account of her estranged spouse from the International Space Station, in what may be the first allegation of a crime committed in space." Anne McClain acknowledges accessing the account from the ISS but denies any wrongdoing, the New York Times reports... The astronaut told the New York Times through a lawyer that she was merely making sure that the family's finances were in order and there was enough money to pay bills and care for Ms Worden's son -- who they had been raising together prior to the split. "She strenuously denies that she did anything improper," said her lawyer, Rusty Hardin, adding that Ms McClain was "totally co-operating..." Her estranged spouse, Summer Worden, reportedly filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Ms McClain has since returned to Earth... Ms McClain graduated from the prestigious West Point military academy and flew more than 800 combat hours over Iraq as an Army pilot. She went on to qualify as a test pilot and was chosen to fly for NASA in 2013.

Brazil Tries Deploying Its Military To Fight Fires in the Amazon [Aug. 24th, 2019|08:34 pm]

syn_slashdot
"As an ecological disaster in the Amazon escalated into a global political crisis, Brazil's president, Jair Bolsonaro, took the rare step on Friday of mobilising the armed forces to help contain blazes of a scale not seen in nearly a decade," reports the New York Times: The sudden reversal, after days of dismissing growing concern over hundreds of fires raging across the Amazon, came as international outrage grew over the rising deforestation in the world's largest tropical rainforest. European leaders threatened to cancel a major trade deal, protesters staged demonstrations outside Brazilian embassies and calls for a boycott of Brazilian products snowballed on social media. As a chorus of condemnation intensified, Brazil braced for the prospect of punitive measures that could severely damage an economy that is already sputtering... "[E]xperts say the clearing of land during the months-long dry season to make way for crops or grazing has accelerated the deforestation," reports AFP. "More than half of the fires are in the Amazon, and some 1,663 new fires were ignited between Thursday and Friday, according to the National Institute for Space Research." terrancem quotes the non-profit environmental news site Mongabay: High-resolution images from satellite company Planet are revealing glimpses of some of the fires currently devastating the Amazon rainforest... Beyond dramatic snapshots, those images also provide data that can be mined for critical insights into what's happening in the Amazon on a basin-wide scale, according to Greg Asner, the director of the Center for Global Discovery and Conservation Science at Arizona State University, whose team is using Planet's data to assess the impact of the fires on carbon emissions. "If you took all of the carbon stored in every tropical forest on Earth and burned it up, you would emit about five times the carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that is already there. The Amazon rainforest represents about half of this forest carbon to give you an idea of how serious this current situation is and the kind of impact it will have on climate change."

[G]lobally ITER is the most expensive science project on Earth ever to be undertaken in the 21st century. The total weight of the ITER reactor will be about 28,000 tonnes... Being made collaboratively by USA, Russia, South Korea, China, Japan, European Union and India as equal partners or participating in this mega effort are countries that together hold 50% of the world's population accounting for about 85% of the global GDP... Dr Mark Henderson, a scientist at ITER, said, "This place to me is the coolest place on Earth, because here in the near future we will have a little Sun on Earth and it will be a 150 million degrees Celsius so it will be the hottest place on Earth, ten times hotter than our Sun...." The project is a herculean effort and operations are expected to start by 2025. Later a full scale electricity generating unit called the DEMO reactor is scheduled to be completed by 2040... On being asked how much carbon dioxide the main culprit for global warming would be released from the ITER project Dr Luce quips "only the carbon dioxide the scientists exhale". The radioactive substances generated from reactions would be the sort that can die off in a hundred years. Its ultimate goal is to create "an unlimited supply of clean energy."

Восхитительно подлое письмо, по-моему. "Родители,
ваши дети в опасности, злые содержатели
интернет-магазинов, которых необходимо пытать в жопу
шуруповертом, предлагают им подработать, развезти
закладки по десяти местам, их ловят уже на третьей,
потому что для ментов интернет-магазины прозрачны.
А некоторые даже не знают, что они развозят, думают,
курительные смеси. А их посадят на десять лет.
За убийство у нас могут не посадить, а за сбыт
посадят, и это правильно, потому что сбытчики хуже
убийц."

Как будто не сами менты держат или крышуют 99% этих
"интернет-магазинов" и как будто адвокат Сергей
Колосовский об этом не подозревает.

Т. е. вопрос только в том, что, собственно, тут
написано: "Это наша провокация, и мы в курсе, что
подростки не знали, что они развозят наркотики, но мы
будем сажать их в геометрической прогрессии", или
"Когда ваш ребенок скажет вам, что мы ему подбросили
наркотики, не верьте ему -- а что не употреблял,
это не аргумент, значит, просто развозил закладки".

Huawei Mate 30 и Mate 30 Pro станут первыми смартфонами с «экраном-водопадом» [Aug. 24th, 2019|09:45 pm]
syn_ixbt_hard

В сети появились новые подробности о флагманских смартфонах Huawei Mate 30 и Mate 30 Pro, чей анонс ожидается довольно скоро. Информацией поделился индийский инсайдер Судханшу Амбхоре (Sudhanshu Ambhore) на своей страничке в Twitter. 

По данным источника, Huawei Mate 30 и Mate 30 Pro могут стать первыми в мире смартфонами с так называемым «экраном-водопадом» или waterfall screen. 

О подготовке таких смартфонов уже сообщили китайские компании Oppo и Vivo. Стоит заметить, что Vivo и Oppo принадлежат одной группе BBK. Суть в том, что боковые кромки такого экрана изогнуты намного сильнее, чем у привычных нам сейчас смартфонов — почти на прямой угол. 

Официальный дебют Vivo NEX 3 с таким экраном ожидается в октябре, а Huawei Mate 30 и Mate 30 Pro представят уже в сентябре.

At least two of these stories can be read (for free) online: BEST NOVELETTE: "If at First You Don't Succeed, Try, Try Again," by Zen Cho. The entire text is availabe online in the B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog, where it was published in November of 2018. BEST SHORT STORY: "A Witch's Guide to Escape: A Practical Compendium of Portal Fantasies," by Alix E. Harrow. The complete text is available online, published in Apex Magazine in February 2018. BEST NOVEL: The Calculating Stars, which presents an alternate history in which a meteor "decimates the U.S. government and paves the way for a climate cataclysm that will eventually render the earth inhospitable to humanity. This looming threat calls for a radically accelerated timeline in the earth's efforts to colonize space..." BEST NOVELLA: Artificial Condition: The Murderbot Diaries #2. ("it has only vague memories of the massacre that spawned that title, and it wants to know more...") BEST DRAMATIC PRESENTATION, LONG FORM: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The Daily Dot reports that there was also one very unusual winner: Archive of Our Own (AO3), the fan-run, nonprofit website that's home to more than 5 million transformative works like fanfiction, fanart, and podfics, won one of science fiction's most prestigious awards at Worldcon Sunday night. The website (which is part of the Organization of Transformative Works) won the Hugo for best related works, a widespread category that sometimes encompasses making-of books, pieces of criticism, and biographies. Fellow nominees included a book on Ursula K. Le Guin's writing, a Hugo Award retrospective, a website that campaigned to sponsor Worldcon memberships for Mexican creators, and Lindsay Ellis' video series on The Hobbit... The very existence of AO3's nomination was a way of legitimizing fanfiction as a form of expression. But its win validates it even further, particularly in the science-fiction and fantasy community...

Facebook Awards $100,000 Prize For New Code Isolation Technique [Aug. 24th, 2019|05:34 pm]

syn_slashdot
ZDNet reports: Facebook has awarded a $100,000 prize to a team of academics from Germany for developing a new code isolation technique that can be used to safeguard sensitive data while it's being processed inside a computer. The award is named the Internet Defense Prize, and is a $100,000 cash reward that Facebook has been giving out yearly since 2014 to the most innovative research presented at USENIX, a leading security conference that takes place every year in mid-August in the US. An anonymous reader writes: The new technique is called ERIM and leverages Intel's memory protection keys (MPKs) and binary code inspection to achieve both hardware and software-based in-process data isolation. The novelty of ERIM is that it has an near-zero performance overhead (compared to other techniques that induce a big performance dip), can be applied with little effort to new and existing applications, doesn't require compiler changes, and can run on a stock Linux kernel.

India's Chandrayaan-2 Spacecraft Enters the Moon's Orbit [Aug. 24th, 2019|04:34 pm]

syn_slashdot
Long-time Slashdot reader William Robinson writes: An unmanned spacecraft, Chandrayaan 2, India launched last month has begun orbiting the moon before it lands on the far side to search for water. The spacecraft is in orbit of 114 km x 18072 km and will continue circling the moon in a tighter orbit until reaching a distance of about 100 km x 30 km from the moon's surface. "The lander will then separate from the orbiter and use rocket fuel to brake as it attempts to land in the south polar region of the moon on Sept. 7 -- an area where no moon landing has been attempted before," reports CTV News. The mission is carrying a total of 14 payloads -- 13 Indian and one passive payload from NASA -- with special focus of the orbiter on mapping craters in the polar region, besides checking for water again. Space.com shares the first photo of the moon snapped by the spacecraft on Wednesday, noting that "If the lander safely touches down, India will become the fourth country to complete that feat, after the Soviet Union, the U.S. and China. "The lander and rover would operate for one lunar day but are not designed to withstand the frigid lunar nights."

Вы заметили, когда начали падать рынки? После выступления Пауэлла? Нет. После выступления китайцев, обозначивших свои действия по торговой войне. Всерьез считаю, что эти страшилки – элементы игры и торга...
