The Government is examining the sale of UK-based computer chip design firm Arm to US tech giant Nvidia, with Boris Johnson taking a personal interest in the deal, his spokesman said.

Earlier on Monday, it was announced that the firm is to be bought by the US graphics chip maker in a deal worth 40 billion dollars (£31.2 billion).

Nvidia has pledged to keep Arm’s headquarters in Cambridge while also promising to expand on Arm’s work to build a “world-class” technology centre.

CRTC says you’re getting the internet speeds you’re paying for

Noble Horvath

Canadians are receiving higher-than-advertised internet speeds from major internet service providers (ISPs), found the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).

The report concluded that major ISPs in Canada either met or exceeded their maximum advertised download and upload speeds, with most providing excellent latency and packet drops below 0.15 per cent.

Between Oct. 1, 2019 to Oct. 31, 2019, the CRTC gathered results from voluntary participating ISPs including Bell Aliant, Bell Canada, Bell MTS, Cogeco, Northwestel, Rogers, Shaw, Telus and Vidéotron.

The speeds are measured using a “Whitebox” in the users’ homes, directly next to the router. The device, built by U.K. broadband performance analyst company SamKnows, periodically performs tests that measure connection quality, latency, upload and download speeds. Because the measurements are taken directly against the router, the results more accurately reflect the quality of service being fed into homes.

All in all, 3,255 Whiteboxes were deployed, out of

Why the World May Never Truly Be Rid of Dongles

Noble Horvath

A version of this post originally appeared on Tedium, a twice-weekly newsletter that hunts for the end of the long tail.

As you may guess from the stuff I write about, I have a lot of computers, of various shapes, sizes, and functions.

Some of them I only mess with occasionally; some are frequent companions; some (like my Pinebook Pro) are destined to be frequent targets of tinkering for me. But the one thing that they have in common is that they encourage me to plug in a rat’s nest of cabling to plug into the various gadgets I own. The monitor I got late last year I purchased specifically because I needed a USB hub to go with my high-resolution screen.

But despite all these efforts to simplify my cabling life, dongles rule everything around me. And around you, too. It comes with the territory.

Ultimately, the problem
