My Knee-Jerk Reaction to WWDC24

kevquirk.com

I watched the WWDC24 event from Apple last night. Here’s my thoughts on some of the announcements. It was an interesting event that didn't really contain many surprises, but I wanted to share some of my thoughts on the whole thing. Because, you know, that's what people do, right? Passwords app - this sounds interesting and it's about time they made a separate app. I've been having some issues with Bitwarden the last few months, so I'm gonna be testing this out. Having all my eggs in Apple...

NULL BITMAP Builds a Database #2: Enter the Memtable

buttondown.email

I didn't realize how hard it would be to bin-pack episodes of this thing into the roughly ~750 word chunks that I try to keep issues of this newsletter at. Lots of things are like, oh that's small, so I'm going to stuff it in with something else, but then that something else is sort of big and so it's iffy to cram something else in there too. Alas! When we last left our heroes we were writing all of our writes into a log, and serving reads by scanning the entire log to figure out what the va...

The Recovery Kit 2B

www.doscher.com

This is the Recovery Kit 2B, and it's got a longer story to go with it, so if you're a paid subscriber, check your inbox with the details on how to get the 3D files. If you're an email subscriber- thank you for skipping social media and reading this directly in your inbox. This is a longer read that usual, and covers more than just the kit itself. I hope you enjoy it! The Build The build is as you'd suspect from me by now, starting with the Pelican 1300 case and throwing in that same old tiny...

Moon Monday #179: Chang’e 6 samples in lunar orbit, a fiery Starship, a critique of CLPS, and more

jatan.space

I’m truly excited to welcome Astrolab  as the latest yearly sponsor of my  Moon Monday blog+newsletter! 🚀 California-based Venturi Astrolab Inc. (Astrolab) is developing a fleet of large multi-purpose rovers for advanced exploration of our Moon. To that end, Astrolab leads one of the three teams NASA selected earlier this year to mature their designs for a  versatile Lunar Terrain Vehicle (LTV), which the agency hopes to use with and without crew across Artemis missions starting e...

Overengineering this blog's preview site with Kubernetes

xeiaso.net

I write a lot. I also need to have people preview what I write before I publish it. This review step is essential for the much longer articles and my blog engine uses enough fancy features that it makes it basically impossible for most people to be able to look at the source code and visualize what is happening to the rendered HTML. So, for a very long time my "preview site" has been me running the blog engine in --devel mode. --devel mode enables a few extra features that aren't...

Scan HTML faster with SIMD instructions: Chrome edition

lemire.me

Modern processors have instructions to process several bytes at once. Effectively all processors have the capability of processing 16 bytes one once. These instructions are called SIMD, for single instruction, multiple data. It was once an open question whether these instructions could be useful to accelerate common tasks such as parsing HTML or JSON. However, the work on JSON parsing, as in the simdjson parser , has shown rather decisively that SIMD instructions could, indeed, be helpful in ...

Saying thanks to open source maintainers

snarky.ca

After signing up for GitHub Sponsors , I had a nagging feeling that somehow asking for money from other people to support my open source work was inappropriate. But after much reflection, I realized that phrasing the use of GitHub Sponsors as a way to express patronage/support and appreciation for my work instead of sponsorship stopped me feeling bad about it. It also led me to reflect on to what degree people can express thanks to open source maintainers. ⚠️ This blog post is entirely from...

Thoughts on the WWDC 2024 keynote on Apple Intelligence

simonwillison.net

Today's WWDC keynote finally revealed Apple's new set of AI features. The AI section (Apple are calling it Apple Intelligence) started over an hour into the keynote - this link jumps straight to that point in the archived YouTube livestream, or you can watch it embedded here: There's also a detailed Apple newsroom post: Introducing Apple Intelligence, the personal intelligence system that puts powerful generative models at the core of iPhone, iPad, and Mac . There are a lot of inte...

computer.rip

The majority of US states have something called a "Department of Motor Vehicles," or DMV. Actually, the universality of the term "DMV" seems to be overstated. A more general term is "motor vehicle administrator," used for example by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators to address the inconsistent terminology. Not happy with merely noting that I live in a state with an "MVD" rather than a "DMV," I did the kind of serious investigative journalism that you have come to expect ...
