L’histoire de l’entreprise taïwanaise TSMC est celle de la mondialisation… et de ses limites

Devant l’usine Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) à Tainan, Taiwan, le 18 septembre 2020.

“Les tensions s’accumulent et devraient pousser les entreprises occidentales à vouloir augmenter leurs capacités de production pour réduire les risques d’approvisionnement. » Les tensions s’accumulent d’autant plus que Pékin a été placé dans une situation intenable par Washington. En interdisant à TSMC de vendre ses puces dernier cri au champion chinois du téléphone, Huawei, l’administration américaine a donné un coup d’arrêt à toute la chaîne de l’électronique chinoise, fer de lance de sa conquête mondiale. Privé de ces puces pour ses smartphones, Huawei a été éjecté violemment de cet immense marché. Car les producteurs locaux sont encore très loin en matière de technologie.La Chine importe aujourd’hui pour plus de 370 milliards de dollars de puces par an, davantage que de pétrole !”

Tesla is working on driver ‘safety rating’ based on driving behaviors and Autopilot use to affect insurance cost

“Here are the factors that Tesla will be tracking to determine your safety rating:

  1. ABS Activation – Number of times ABS is activated Hours Driven – Average daily driving time Forced Autopilot
  2. Disengagements – Number of times Autopilot is disabled due to ignored alerts Forward Collision
  3. Warnings – Number of times car detects a potential forward collision
  4. Unsafe Following Time – Portion of time spent at an unsafe following distance
  5. Intensity of Acceleration and Braking – Speed variance due to extreme acceleration and braking. Shown on a scale from 0-10 as measured against Tesla’s internal fleet.

This score is going to affect your premium by up to 50% on a monthly basis – meaning that it can increase or lower your insurance cost depending on how you drive.”

Payer pour éviter les cookies publicitaires, est-ce légal ?

Cookies Numerama

“Est-ce légal de demander aux internautes de payer une petite somme chaque mois, par exemple deux euros, pour ne pas avoir de cookies publicitaires ? C’est en quelque sorte la question qui est en train d’émerger, notamment sur les réseaux sociaux. En effet, des internautes ont été interloqués de voir qu’en se rendant sur des sites, il peut leur être demandé de payer pour échapper à la publicité ciblée.”

Google charts a course towards a more privacy-first web

Article's hero media

“Advances in aggregation, anonymization, on-device processing and other privacy-preserving technologies offer a clear path to replacing individual identifiers. In fact, our latest tests of FLoC show one way to effectively take third-party cookies out of the advertising equation and instead hide individuals within large crowds of people with common interests. Chrome intends to make FLoC-based cohorts available for public testing through origin trials with its next release this month, and we expect to begin testing FLoC-based cohorts with advertisers in Google Ads in Q2. Chrome also will offer the first iteration of new user controls in April and will expand on these controls in future releases, as more proposals reach the origin trial stage, and they receive more feedback from end users and the industry. This points to a future where there is no need to sacrifice relevant advertising and monetization in order to deliver a private and secure experience. ”

“We are gamers, through and through. We obsess about new gaming features, new architectures, new games and tech. We designed GeForce GPUs for gamers, and gamers are clamoring for more.Yet NVIDIA GPUs are programmable. And users are constantly discovering new applications for them, from weather simulation and gene sequencing to deep learning and robotics. Mining cryptocurrency is one of them.With the launch of GeForce RTX 3060 on Feb. 25, we’re taking an important step to help ensure GeForce GPUs end up in the hands of gamers.”

“Facebook was embroiled in controversy over its data-collection practices. Mr. Cook piled on in a national television interview, saying his own company would never have found itself in such a jam. Mr. Zuckerberg shot back that Mr. Cook’s comments were “extremely glib” and “not at all aligned with the truth.”In private, Mr. Zuckerberg was even harsher. “We need to inflict pain,” he told his team, for treating the company so poorly, according to people familiar with the exchange.It wasn’t the first time—or the last—that Mr. Cook’s comments and actions would leave Mr. Zuckerberg seething and, at times, plotting to get back at Apple. The escalation of grievances erupted late last month in a rare public tit-for-tat between the two tech giants that laid bare the simmering animosity between their leaders, who exchanged jabs about privacy, app-tracking tools and, ultimately, their dueling visions about the future of the internet.”

As Predicted, Google’s Search Preference Menu Eliminates DuckDuckGo

http://www.beaude.net/no-flux/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/finger-on-scale_header.jpg

“The central problem with Google’s search preference menu is that it is a pay-to-play auction in which only the highest bidders are on the menu. This auction format incentivizes bidders to bid what they can expect to profit per user selection. The long-term result is that the participating Google alternatives must give most of their preference menu profits to Google! Google’s auction further incentivizes search engines to be worse on privacy, to increase ads, and to not donate to good causes, because, if they do those things, then they could afford to bid higher. ”
