Le Maitre

It’s been used for decades to create all sorts of practical effects. Phil Rhodes celebrates the Le Maitre Mini Mist fog machine. 

Part of the purpose of considering gear we like is to celebrate the success of things that have stood the test of time. Our subject today is a well-known example because Le Maitre has been manufacturing variations on the Mini Mist for decades. It is not an embodiment of the very zenith of modern technology, but it does some unique things which should endear it to camera people seeking to represent fires, explosions or perhaps simply that slightly atmospheric interior that seems to be part of the current period-drama milieu.

Most fog machines (by the sheer count of disco foggers sold) work in essentially the same way. A fluid, usually a mixture of glycol or glycerin and water, moves under pressure

Is it time for the bears to break out the champagne glasses? Not so fast, says Goldman Sachs. Volatility has ruled the Street for the last few weeks, leading some to conclude that those with a more pessimistic outlook had been vindicated, but the firm believes stocks can still climb higher.According to Goldman Sachs’ head of U.S. equity strategy, David Kostin, the S&P 500 could still hit 3,600 by the end of the year, and 3,800 by mid-2021, on the back of vaccine-related optimism and progress with the economic reopening. This would reflect gains of 10% and 16%, respectively, should the index ultimately reach these targets.“Despite the sharp sell-off in the past week, we remain optimistic about the path of the U.S. equity market in coming months.

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.

Arm is best known as the designer of processor chips used in most major smartphones – including Apple and Samsung – as well as other devices such as laptops.

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
