Just another addendum to the absolute hive of incompetence that is Softbank Japan though. One of the dumbest investment banks (and owner of ARM) on the planet, and considering the competition that is really an achievement.

wow that heist story is nuts. the chinese aren't just content to steal IP anymore, they're stealing whole western corporations now. nvidia and apple really need to do what google did and unilaterally pull out of china.

They've been doing it for a long time. Just look at Fellowes paper shredders, what over a decade ago?

100 years ago Mauser and Astra were in competition with Chinese copies of their pistols (broomhandle c96). Licensed copies? Hah, no.

We recently fired an employee who was discovered by the Accounting department during a process audit. They look at internal processes and make recommendations, rarely they discover fraud or other issues but most of the time its humdrum stuff. During a review last year they found someone sending encrypted files to chinese IPs. I don't know what was actually sent but I suspect it was internal docs and IP, everyone has clammed up about it unfortunately. The employee was terminated and the police were called who escalated it to a different agency but to my knowledge nothing has/will happen because he's gone back to China and it's basically impossible to extradite their citizens. At some point western countries need to get serious with China on IP theft, we really need a big economic coalition to exclude them from, something that will really hurt. We also need less reliance on their manufacturing, outsourcing labor to China in search of short term profits is how we got here.

The thing is that one day another country will do this to China, probably just as brazenly. Of course China needs to actually innovate meaningfully first and producing a generation of robotic learners isn't how you get there, their educational programs are rigid and dismal which is why so many families opt to give their children western educations.

The Chinese are upgraded from tech thief to tech robber. They should be proud.

This will probably lead to the first live fire corporate war(between corporations, not between a corporation and a union, etc.). Arm has no real legal response left, the Chinese government is going to side with the new Arm-theft company. Complaining several oceans away will do nothing. Time to spend your legal team money on assassins and mercenaries, murder Allen Wu and as many of his supporters as you can find, then blow up their research and development facilities.

They can probably even get assistance from the US military for this (covertly), because this is 100% an act of war by China against the rest of the world. Whoever controls the most computational power going forward is going to run pretty much everything. Too bad the west has fucked up for decades and let(or happily encouraged) all the manufacturing move out of their own countries.

This should at least distract people from Covid deaths and climate change for a few years. Growing up, little did I realize I would see the rapid downfall of the human race into a dystopian nightmare. I was worried about silly shit, like going to college and getting a job. Rofl!

it is unreal to me that they consider my ryzen 1 cpu inadequate. 6 core/12 thread 4ghz still very good gaming cpu is inadequate? what the fuck is win11 running? a crypto miner underneath?

Windows 11 is like free advertising for both Linux and MacOS. They should keep doing it.

That XFMD looks interesting. Something the size of an SD card that can hold TBs of data? Sign me up if it isn't afflicted with SCSI pricing. I can imagine a PCIe card with a lead off to a 3.5" "docking" unit that has multiple slots for the devices. You could turn an SFF box in to a massive NAS with devices that small.

Quote: "The company told The Verge that PCs with unsupported CPUs aren't 'entitled' to get Windows 11 updates, and might not even get driver or security upgrades."

So... nothing like how it worked with previous versions of Windows on "unsupported" hardware.

They REALLY want to ram that TPM down our throats and finally fulfill the once universally condemned project Palladium.
