    And in other news-
    M$ dumps HEVC
    [url<]https://www.myce.com/news/windows-10-fall-creators-update-ditches-hevc-h-265-codec-83143/[/url<] Thro M$ has always been all-over the place with codecs-especially if they had to pay for them.

      Anandtech covered this issue, with some specific commentary / dialog w/ microsft around the patent licensing issue.

    [url=https://www.anandtech.com/show/7426/evga-x79-dark-review<]EVGA has been "getting" it for quite some time now.[/url<] The identical text and video dialogue at GN make me want to puke. So does the lack of research. Also, it's not pronounced by sounding out the capital letters. According to AnandTech anyway, it's actually said ev-ga. Add: so I did stick around and read GN's 8600K article. I like the writing just fine. It flows with the charts, and is pretty on point, if not in depth. I was quite taken aback by the identical article text and video dialogue, though. Freaky.

    Shoot. I was hoping for a video with a cat.

      The doggo stealing the cotton candy almost made up for the lack of cat.

      ALMOST.

    So drfish…this is a gerbil test drive? ‘Cause you seem to be taking us all for a spin.

    [well, it’s funny to ME !]

      Just keeping it short and sweet with convenient video I already had.

    That is a misleading headline from slashdot. [quote<] YouTube to hire more than 10,000 content moderators on staff next year to stop its child exploitation problem [/quote<] The actual quote from their own article references was: [quote<] The company plans to increase its content moderation workforce to more than 10,000 employees in 2018 in order to help screen videos and train the platform's machine learning algorithms to spot and remove problematic children's content. Sources familiar with YouTube's workforce numbers say this represents a 25% increase from where the company is today. [/quote<] So yeah, 10,000 new employees isn't accurate at all.

      Hmm, it seems “to” and “by” aren’t the same thing.

      Also, are [i<]any[/i<] of them technically employees? I thought Google used contractors for this, much as [url=https://arstechnica.com/features/2017/04/the-secret-lives-of-google-raters/<]they use contractors for rating search results[/url<]. (I recognize that salaried staff and hourly contractors both may be referred to colloquially as "employees" but there's a profound legal difference, as most tech companies -- and their employees/contractors -- are well aware).

        No idea, probably will all be replaced by AI in 3 years anyhow.
