    An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: The Federal Communications Commission has finished investigating T-Mobile for a network outage that Chairman Ajit Pai called „unacceptable.“ But instead of punishing the mobile carrier, the FCC is merely issuing a public notice to „remind“ phone companies of „industry-accepted best practices“ that could have prevented the T-Mobile outage. After the 12-hour nationwide outage on June 15 disrupted texting and calling services, including 911 emergency calls, Pai wrote that „The T-Mobile network outage is unacceptable“ and that „the FCC is laun …
  • NVIDIA Cancels GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB: Report
    Freitag 22:10 msmash at Slashdot
    VideoCardz reports: NVIDIA has just told its board partners that it will not launch GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB cards as planned. NVIDIA allegedly cancels its December launch of GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB. This still very fresh information comes from two independent sources. Technically GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB could launch at a later time, but the information that we have clearly stated that those SKUs have been canceled, not postponed. NVIDIA has already canceled its RTX 3070 Ti model (PG141 SKU 0), so the RTX 3070 16GB (PG141 SKU5) and RTX 3080 20GB ( …

  • Why Intel's Stock Just Dropped 10% After Reporting Earnings
    Freitag 9:00 BeauHD at Slashdot
    Intel shares are off around 10% in after-hours trading after the chip company reported its Q3 data. TechCrunch explains why: Investors had expected Intel to report an adjusted $1.11 in per-share profit, off around 22% from the year-ago period. They also expected it to report revenues of $18.26 billion in Q3, down a more modest 5% compared to the year-ago Q3. Notably, Intel beat revenue expectations with top line of $18.3 billion, and met earnings-per-share estimates of $1.11, on an adjusted basis. So, why are Intel shares sharply lower?

    Donnerstag 23:58 Michal Kapiczynski at Feed
    Most of the communication on the Internet comes directly from the clients to the servers. The client usually sends a request, and the server responds to that request. It is known as a client-server model, and it works well in most cases. However, there are some scenarios in which the server needs to send a message to the client without the preceding request. In such cases, we have a couple of options: we can use short and long polling, webhooks, websockets, or event streaming platforms like Kafka. However, there is another technology, not popularized enough, which in many cases, is just perfec …

    Donnerstag 23:26 Max Shash at Feed
    You may be wondering why you should bother with Kubernetes‘ log management tools? Kubernetes dominates the container orchestration market and is often used to host microservices. Each instance of a microservice generates large numbers of log events that can quickly become difficult to manage.  But worse, when something goes wrong, finding the root cause can be tough due to the complex interactions between services and the near-infinite number of possible failure modes. This potential for trouble has fueled the popularity of log management tools for Kubernetes.
