Steam owner Valve accused of ripping off 14m UK gamers
  • That is my understanding. Additionally I have seen no evidence that it is actually enforced either. You could get Ghost of Tsushima for $59.99 on steam and for like $51.xx on another site using keys. Same happened with forbidden west.

  • Vulkan 1.3 on the M1 in 1 month
  • I could see developers using both the NVK and M1 drivers depending on which best suits their needs for hardware similarity. It is also interesting that both are not super opensource friendly hardware manufacturers. Good hardware, less so on openness.

  • The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered on PC has been ready for at least seven months, it’s claimed
  • This was exactly my first thought as well and I agree it is good business sense. I am in ok with console versions coming out first and getting the kinks out before PC.

    Would it be great to do all at the same time? Yeah, but I would rather not deal with another CP2077-like release where it is out on everything and buggy on everything.

  • I watched Nvidia's Computex 2024 keynote and it made my blood run cold
  • I wouldn’t say bad, but the generative ai and llm are definitely underbaked and shoving everything under the sun into them is going to create garbage in, garbage out. And using it for customer support where it will inevitably offer either bad advice or open you up to lawsuits seems shortsighted to say the least.

    They were calling the rest machine learning(ML) a couple years ago. There are valid uses for ML though. Image/video upscaling and image search are a couple examples.

  • Do I have schizophrenia or I am scammed by psychiatrist?
  • Based on the little you share, I would lean towards that being a valid diagnosis. Nothing wrong with getting a second opinion though. Sounds like this is pretty new to you, so it is understandable that you a feeling this way. I’d suggest doing some research on it to see if you can relate and maybe check out local mental health support groups. They are free and peers with mental illnesses themselves. Talking to friends or people you know that you trust about how you were doing before treatment and now may be helpful as it can be very difficult to have personal insight with mental health issues.

    There are various injectable treatments for it these days which means you don’t have to remember to take pills. Some last around a month and I have heard there are some that last half a year.

    Pricing seems about right if in the US. A month of generic pills can be around $700 without insurance not to mention doctor appointment co-fees. Keep in mind that not taking schizophrenia treatment can end up costing more, not even getting into broken relationships, lost jobs and interruptions to education.

  • Fan suing Madonna for ‘forcing’ them to watch sex acts during concert
  • Had they not heard of Madonna?

    Edit: "He’s suing Madonna for breach of written contract, negligent misrepresentation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false advertising, negligence/negligent infliction of emotional distress and unfair competition. "

    If I went to her concert and this stuff didn't happen I'd probably sue for that.

  • iSH: An open source terminal for iOS/iPadOS
  • A-shell

    Hadn't heard of a-shell. On my iPad I occasionally use iSH for bittorent, among other uses. I do agree it is on the slower side, but that is in part because of Apple's rules about JITs and this forces iSH to use an interpreter. I do think an interpreter of ARM ISA would potentially be faster as the ISA is fixed width and x86 is not, but I don't know if that would be margin of error faster or not.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Edit: I may have came across that before, but iSH is more flexible, if much slower.

  • Light hypersensitivity: Has anyone tried "migraine" or colored glasses for it?

    If you have, how well has it helped? Did different colors, such as those driving yellow tinted ones, help more? I have some transitions glasses, but that only helps outside. I saw on at least one site rose colored migraine glasses and am thinking about getting a pair.


    sdr fm daemon/server

    I am new to sdr. Currently I have an rlt-sdr dongle running rtl_fm piped to ffmpeg. I’d like to switch to something that I can change the frequency without shutting it down and can be run as a daemon on linux, ie no tui or gui. I am having difficulty finding anything currently available.

    Is there anything out there or is my only choice to modify rtl_fm to do what I am wanting?
