This particular vulnerability is in how Windows validates certificates in user space; there's no kernel attack here. Could just as easily have happened on Linux if the bug was in openssl or nss code (Firefox doesn't use Windows' certificate store which is why it's not affected).

That one even riled up Linus.
No nuances, just buggy code (was: related to Spinlock implementation and the Linux Scheduler)
I'm with Linus on this one (and he was polite about it as a bonus). The original author's benchmarks worked because spinlocking in userland works /great/ on a completely idle system, and fails horribly on even a lightly-loaded system where the kernel is free to deschedule you right in the middle of your "just a few microseconds" spin.

Did anyone figure out a way to access the metrics list for selective metrics display? I may have missed it as everything is organized a bit differently--but couldn't find it.

Holy interface clutter, batman! A mess of settings on multiple tabs, plus a web browser, just because we can!

I did find where you select the items on the metrics overlay, though: they're hidden on the Performance -> Metrics screen. The little eyeball icon next to each chart toggles the respective line in the overlay.

Welp, there goes Chrome's top market share. What a bunch of morons. Yes, I understand ads are your business, but guess what: NOBODY IS GOING TO WATCH ADS JUST BECAUSE YOU FUCKING WANT THEM TO, GOOGLE.

Guess I'll be on the hunt for a new browser.
Holy cow. I find it hard to believe that they'd actually kill ad blockers, but if the new Edge can install Chrome extensions, people might switch to that.

How there's no such thing as AI.
Yeah, that bugs me in all these AI articles too. There's no "intelligence" in there; it's just big data analysis. I prefer "machine learning", because that's all it's doing - scanning a huge dataset for patterns. The closest connection to human intelligence you can make for a lot of these systems is "It may have gotten the right (or an interesting) answer to this question, but the system is so complex I can't tell you how it got there", and that's not a good thing

Sounds like a ripoff of S.M. Stirling's Change series.
Could be; I was thinking about diving into that series a while back, and my searches didn't come up with any other major works with the same idea. Shouldn't it be called "Everdark", though?

On the other hand, what if they changed the concept to really be "Neverdark"? If batteries suddenly refused to run out? Free power everywhere - no more global energy companies - space launches via magnetic railgun - but the armies of every country now have access to big lasers?

I'm wondering why Pikuniku is in this list. It was available on Twitch prime a few days ago, even before the official release. It seems to be getting positive reviews; did Twitch pay them a lot of money to release it for free on Prime?

Virtual Super Resolution (11)
Now supports ultra-wide 21:9 displays.

Holy Shit after many years I wasn't expecting that feature! Yes! Cant wait to try that.
On the other hand, it still doesn't support VSR on my 5:4 1280x1024 display... I don't understand why they have to whitelist each resolution individually.

They should have called it something other than "Nook"; that name means e-reader in my mind, and this is a standard Android tablet. Amazon initially made the same mistake with their tablets, calling them "Kindle Fire", but they soon renamed them to just "Fire".

2. Re: The Average User Checks Email 5.6 Hours Per Weekday Nov 10, 2018, 16:30 Genesys
 
I assume this 5.6 hours include the time spent composing and responding to emails, in which case the number sounds reasonable. It can take me a half-hour to an hour to respond to one email, depending on the amount of research done and detail I put into the reply. In fact, for some employees that do most of their communication via email, I'd expect all 8 of their work hours to be email-driven.
