NVIDIA is quickly making good on its promise to support its latest graphics cards on Macs. The GPU giant has quietly posted beta macOS drivers (direct download) that should support any GeForce 10-series card, whether it’s a simple GTX 1050 or an all-out beast like the Titan Xp. It’s a big step forward for Mac users who’ve had to settle for 9-series cards at best. However, the big challenge will be making the most of the cards given the current Mac lineup — this is as much an investment in the future as anything.Right now, this makes the most sense if you have a previous-generation Mac Pro and are either a gamer (not the biggest segment of Mac users, we know) or run media creation apps that can take advantage of NVIDIA’s added computing power. Otherwise, you’re looking at decidedly unofficial solutions, such as external Thunderbolt graphics enclosures (which do appear to work) or “Hackintosh” systems using off-the-shelf PC parts.

EFF vägrar att backa inför hot från patenttroll

EFF vägrar att backa inför hot från patenttroll

Electronical Frontier Foundation har sedan länge publicerat olika patent som de korat till Stupid Patent of the Month. Nu har ett av de utpekade bolagen bakom ett sådant patent inlett en strid med EFF, som vägrar att backa.

I juni 2016 beskrevs ett patent i Australien där lagring av information beskrevs ch ritades upp grafiskt. Patentet avsåg alltså den grafiska bilden och patentet ägs av Global Equity Management (SA) Pty. Ltd. (GEMSA) som EFF betecknade vara ett klassiskt patenttroll.

Domstol

GEMSA hårde av sig och krävde att EFF skulle plocka bort artikeln. EFF vägrade. GEMSA tog då saken till australiensiskt domstol och lyckades få en dom på ett EFF skulle plocka bort artikeln. EFF vägrade igen och detsamma gäller det skadestånd som GEMSA ville ha på 750 000 dollar.

Artikeln ligger fortfarande kvar på EFFs hemsida.

Slår tillbaka

Efter att ha anlitat en australiensisk advokatbyrå för att tillbakavisa GEMSAs första krav så slår nu EFF tillbaka och stämmer GEMSA för att klargöra att australiensisk lag inte kan tvinga ett amerikanskt företag att plocka bort åsikter och tankar – vilka skyddas av den amerikanska konstitutionen.

San Francisco—The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a lawsuit yesterday against a company that’s using foreign laws to stymie EFF’s free speech rights to publish information about and criticize its litigation over a patent featured in EFF’s “Stupid Patent of the Month” blog series.

The company, Global Equity Management (SA) Pty Ltd (GEMSA), owns a patent claiming the idea of using “virtual cabinets” to graphically represent different operating systems and storage partitions. GEMSA has filed dozens of patent infringement cases in the U.S.

Ut och samla två kilometers ägg

Ut och samla två kilometers ägg

Ut och samla två kilometers ägg

Nu är Påskeventet i Pokémon GO igång och de första rapporterna säger betydligt – samla ihop två kilometers ägg. Det lönar sig.

Ninatic har nämligen, som utlovat, flyttat ned flera ovanliga och svårfångade Pokémons i de ägg som kläcks snabbast när du är ute och går:

  • Aerodactyl

  • Dunsparce

  • Eevee

  • Elekid

  • Girafarig

  • Grimer

  • Growlithe

  • Koffing

  • Lapras

  • Larvitar

  • Magby

  • Miltank

  • Onix

  • Phanpy

  • Rhyhorn

  • Scyther

  • Shellder

  • Shuckle

  • Skarmory

  • Smoochum

  • Sneasel

  • Stantler

  • Sudowoodo

  • Tangela

  • Tyrogue

  • Wobbuffet

  • Wooper

 

Det är som synes en hel del Pokémons som i normala fall bara kläckas ur tio kilometers ägg som ny flyttas ned i två kilometers ägg. Lägg sedan till att det handlar om flera mycket sällsynta Pokémons så har du betydligt bättre chanser att fylla på i ditt Pokédex.

Missa inte Mackens fråga!
