Intel's Minix opertaing system makes you wonder.. why does they haven't advertised are they trying to do something via the internet without you knowing about it? Read the article about the world "most popular OS" and think a while for it.
Today is a Finnish independency day which marks nations 101th year of independency.
What would be more convenient than getting a little bit more familiria with the Finnish whisky scene? One of the currently most well known distillery is the Teerenpeli's distillery which has already a nice collection of Finnish whiskey. Just remember to taste them responsively.
South China Morning Post (scmp.com) writes a news story which tells that Huaqei's CFO Sabrina Meng Wanzhou the daughter of company's founder was arrested on canadian border because of the request of the US goverment. The reason behind US goverment's request was accusation of breaking the sanctions against Iran.
Would this be a good time for US market collapse and self searching on a nation wide level?
The Windowscentral writes that Microsoft would be planning on changing the Edge browser to the Chromium powered alternative, codename "Anaheim". I can't say are these plans real or not, so go read the article your self and decide is this just a rumor or a real thing.
The Verge tells that NVidia has created the first A.I. generated videogame demo. Personally I think this will lead to a revolution in the gaming industry in the future. Hopefully the A.I. generated graphics will make some of the textures obsolete in the games and help to reduce the insane size of the modern games we have now days. Other thing that interest me what kind of rig is NVidia using to make this run in 25 frames per second. And as always some of us should be again worried about the A.I. making our jobs obsolete.
Ever spent a tought could your DNS service be faster?
Well if not now is a great opportunity to do so. Go to www.dnsperf.com and see which DNS service ticks your personal boxes.
EU is planning on executing a proposal
that would but Youtube service to a liability burden when user uploads copyrighted material without the license owner permission. Ok the proposal is as clear you would excpect from a bunch of monkeys.
Especially Article 11 and 13 as they are proposed would also mean that bloggers would in the worst nightmare scenario be blocked in the fear of them uploading copyrighted material even accidently on youtube. Another proposed scenario would be that Youtube would just leave the European continent, which I personally don't see as aliable option for Youtubes business model.
Let the policymakers know what you think about this proposal.
The Verge is also on the tip of the proposal, opening it nicely for more biteable format. The article also clearly brings up the insanity and uncommitability of the proposal's ideas of the 'Upload Filter' and 'Link Tax'.
Last but not least there's a YLE areena video for Finnish users to watch and decide how ready the made proposal is in their opinion.
Just added this site to the Brave Browser brand awareness campaing.
Just last week I ranted what's wrong with it, but hey nobody else isn't making content creator support
as easy as Brave is trying to do right now.
So why not trying it out your self and building up your own opinion about it?
There was a short power outage at westend of Tampere between 08:40-09:05,
which led a downtime for the site. No worries problem was handeled with lightning speed
by the service and all the massive amount of visitors can again enjoy the site.
For me it sounds like a recipe for a private bank or small business without bank as the middle man, assuming that IOTA/any other crypto will become de facto replacement for fiat money.
Why not spend a couple of minutes forming your own opinion about the carriota project?
I was going to give Brave browser a change and all seemed fine for the first 5min.
GUI was consistent and all seems to be working smoothly, then the little but important things start to emerge.
Chrome heritage starts to creep in and really shows of when you would like make some personal choices related to the interface.
Can't import password from a file (why should I trust those lastpass services?)
No way the user could disable or customize the about:newtab background, really convenient when using remote desktop connetion to have a new wallpaper everytime you open a newtab.
They advertise how you're in control but only way to give feedback is registering to the forums
and writing a post. This problem affects other browsers as well.
Why can't there be a inbuild anonymous feedback feature?
I got no intensions to create yet another online account just to give some three point feedback
to a some marginal browser that's trying to emerge to the Chrome dominated browser scene.
Could it be that I have missed some settings and I'm wrong with some of the claims made here...
If that's the case isn't that a design problem in the software?
But personally I prefer Vivaldi over Brave, more detailed control and emphasis more towards the usability than the nice looking eyecandy.
Before starting a flamewar consider that these are just opinions of a single user.
To close on the positive note, on the mobile environment Brave is a good choice in my opinion.
Against the evil powers of capitalism and their religious believe that you can have enternal market growth while at the same time driving growth with limited recourses, logical? But let's get to the point, Mozilla telling about the fight for defending equal net for everyone in good and the bad in the blog post.
Newsline.com writes about the historic vote where the non physical definition of the kilogram was decided.
Anyone interested about the Brave browser can find openSuse installation
Brave also support the BAT(BasicAttentionToken) which enables you to pay some ammount of money to specific sites BUT...
You have to have a working phone number and use Uphold's Authy 2-Step verification system and you know what THIS SUCKS.
I personally won't buy it, Why should I be enforced to use their system and install yet another app to my phone
instead of using already existing solutions like the oauthlib+oathtool?
Just tell your favorite site administrator to use IOTA+tangle so they can totally drop any thirdparty ripoff schemes between the content creator and enduser. 2p2 transfers without any fees (ok, the coordinator is still in use because of the size of the network but will be removed in the future).
Why not start by supporting this site: support iota address
As always, a solid and interesting video from Andrew Price for anyone even slightly interested about 3D or the game industry. And as a bonus if you didn't know you can use Blender as a VSE (VideoSequenceEditor) aka video editor.
Personally I would be very very sceptical if there's no technical documentation about promised payment network.
Here's a post writing about the same issues that bothers me about this iniative.
Only interesting thing is Q tokens registered on the Ethereum blockchain, according to the www.exponentialinvestor.com post.
Personally I would use my time getting to know more about the Tangle technology that IOTA uses,
which doesn't need massive amount of mining power and electricity.
Time to take a deep breath and think the scale outside of our little blue planet.
While at it why not go and see Juno mission images at Nasa webpage related to the mission
Personally I just wonder what kind of logic they use behind the antlantic ocean.
Because I can't come any examples from history where trading sanctions have generated
wealth and global growth to anyone. But hey, I'm just a middle aged Finn..

A Blog column from tonsky.me dives in to the issue that has been around in my opinion way too long. It's the state and carelessness of the coder monkeys towards optimizing their damn code. As the column states "Google, takes 13 seconds to open moderately-sized emails" for me this is just intolerable and feeds the HW sales for no reason. Couple of issues usually being that apps don't clean their old files, Windows updates does the same. For example Android apps memory and cpu usage seems usually be way too for the tasks the programs do, like display and send text... <I could carry on...> but go and read the column and build up the Rage Against the Coder Monkeys
And Chrome's deep integration with Google services, which shouldn't come to a surprise. Here's a ha.x0r.be post that dives in to this issue, that probably is a non-issue to many average users.
YanSculpts makes an hastily look to the up coming Blender 2.8, so go an look this video on youtube and spin up your excitement.
Linus Tech Tips looking NVidia new RTX series graphics cards and what tiny amount of there's yet to be looked and ranting the rest of the time. Because it seems that there ain't that much to test out yet with this card and its capatilities.
So Please santa would you be me a one solid gold Mega-Man figure for celebration of the 30th anniversary.
There's a new ways of censorship that's made possible by our everlasting hunger for new technology and loose concern of our private data. The intercept.com knows to tell that the communist capitalist party of China is now using modern wester capitalist forces to gain deeper control of their citizens. Only diffrence I see in this move is that Chinese goverment isn't wasting time or resources trying to hide their influence as the Americans seems to be so keen to do.
Why not give the Pack service a try?
Basicly you just upload a file (max. 200MB) and share two url's for the target user.
For a secure transfer "It’s recommended to use two different channels to send the file and password link".
But for a word of advice I would not recommend using a beta stage service for mission critical data sharing, just saying.
BCFocus reports that South Korea’s big exchange Upbit has added Iota to it's selection. Also Iota Hub has been released to simplify the process to add Iota support. This should help service providers to integrate Iota to their service more easily.
Dominik Schiener announced on the medium post that IRI 1.5.2 is coming very soon

Advertising IOTA scalability
because I personally think that the Internet Of Devices is closer than average Joe thinks.
I also dare to argue that you can't escape this destiny

According to the Blog IOTA, tangle technology is taking apart on the European +CityChange project.
Project includes European cities Trondheim, Limerick, Alba Iulia, Pisek, Sestao, Smolyan and Voru
that will for the next five years experiment on how to become smart positive energy cities.
OSNews reports that SUSE Linux is sold to EQT Partners with price tag of a $2.5 billion.

Only future shows how this project grows and stays alive, it's going to be big in the next 10 years
or it will be forgotten as on of those 'let's try it out' projects.
This app will do this time, was enough to get my interest.
My tought is that on the background there is a central server,
so I'm don't totally swallow the total privacy statements.
Tech Ingredents has done two videos about the subject and for me it has triggered curiosity about wide use cases you can archieve by this technic. First video tries to find out which material works the best for the exciters. Second video dives deeper and looks the effects of the panel shape and aqoustic panels as a new material. Feed your enthusiaism when ever you can.
According to the RT.com: India have plans to break USD Oil monopoly and bypass US sanctions with bying oil from Iran with rupees. My guess is that by American mai media will soon find the holy center of Isis terrorist in the main square of Iran. As the history has shown to us many times the United States of America seems to have only one solutions to these "terrorist"oil issues usually has involved a lots of bombs and military power. No matter what the opinions of the United Nations opinions have been.
Let's see how the history unfolds this time.
Good place to track the progress is Trinity IOTA Roadmap page.
if you already haven't check a couple of political thoughts from Noam Chomsky
and form your independent view of the political atomosphere now days.
Usually people should use much more media critism than they in my opinion do.
That's the best way to lower the probability of power media propaganda that's feeded for us everyday.
Take a few side steps from main media and read some alternative news and be
amazed how much news are left out from your local daily news and information buble. Over and out.
Meager price, good location, short distance from services. What are you st ill waiting for?

What I understood it's all about real world integration and liquid transactions between currencies like EUR/USD. Also long predicted smart contacts were promised on the teaser video.
One thing that wasn't explained were outsourced computation, meaning excatly what for Iota?
Watch the video and keep speculating.
What I think is that Liquidity is straight competitor for QASH World Book.
GIMP 2.10.0 is released. This release is said to contain the result of 6 long years of work according to the release notes. There ain't too many opensource alternatives for Adobe dominance, but to be frank the Gimp haven't never been the fastest tool out there.
What I found in my short test was, shortcut improvements - use of shift key, wrap tool enchanged usability, unified transform tool - no more jumping between transform tools, over 16 bit color support, general speed improvements.
Overall I encourage all old and new Gimp users and curious people to give new release a try.
The IOTA team has announced that an IOTA network snapshot will be taking place next Sunday 28 January. Read the full column and the instructions what to do before the snapshot.

Google just can't decide... and tries everything when something doesn't come a viral hit instantly.
The Verge - Chat is Google’s next big fix for Android’s messaging mess
It just doesn't cease to amaze me how dumb decisions Alphabet (Google inc.) continue to do.
First they hatchets Picasa, destroy usability of their photos service while they create this tangled and crippled
monster they call google+, which is fusion of Picasa, Google Photos, Google Drive and everything else.
After all this they some how come to a conclusion that making two IM apps (Duo&Allo) instead of Google hangouts.
Who remembers their Gmail integrated IM service before these?
Referring to Google talk which also was burried by Google's incapability to choose direction and sticking on it.
Most recent decision is shutdown of goo.gl url shortener, which is really well suited to shorten down those annoying Google drive kilometer long url's I sometimes have to share.
All I have to say is "Oh dear..."
According to news published by IOTA News, read the article here.

For all those people who are too lazy to open the browser to see the updates. Here is the oven warm rss feed.
Pumped to this concept beta IOTA project called TipIOTA
Idea is that you can tip and get tipped by your online comments, videos and other media.
Not a unique idea in the crypto horizont but first for IOTA.
Got my attention would make it even easier to tip someone, without the address hassless.
Story of the leaked emails and alleged vulnerability, the hacks can happen at anytime sell sell sell
Then there's the legal threats and official statement of the IOTA foundation.
Finally in my opinion much more objective and anti-FUD approach to the situation.
for what you see and consider the truth now days. Also watch this video.

Majority of the neighbour community fears the unknown. That's why we now have 24/7 lockdown and door codes.. on a glass front door.
Oh man that door code on a glass door will really stop those raping immigrants. Hopefully you do understand the writer being sarcastic here..
Like for real?
Do people really have these kind of unrealistic fears?
I got a question for you, why would anybody break in to your house to rape your child beard vagina or smelly man arse?
And how does that glass front door gonna stop the people that have decided to come and lynch you?
I got a suggestion for you all, how about you turn of that social media machine and all the other electrical gadgets. Pour a dram of single malt to the glass and use those lazy, grey brain cells.
Epilogue: I don't agree with the immigrant policy. But last time I checked I belonged to the minority and that's democracy, so I won't bitch about it, I just vote in the next elections and try to see things from different perspective. Usually the problem is not in the individuals, but in the politics. If you don't know or understand something, maybe you should investigate it...
