  • India Seeks Antitrust Scrutiny of Global Merger and Acquisition Deals (1083 characters)

    Fri, 05 Aug 2022 10:00:00 -0400India Seeks Antitrust Scrutiny of Global Merger and Acquisition DealsSlashdot

    India is a key overseas market for several global tech giants including Meta and Google. Now the South Asian nation is gearing up to have its voice heard for global M&A deals. From a report: New Delhi has proposed amendments to its Competition Act, 2002, to introduce a number of changes including requiring the permission of local watchdog (Competition Commission of India) for all overseas deals exceeding $252 million in value for firms with "substantial business operations in India." India, the world's second largest internet market that has drawn investments of tens of billions of dollars from Meta, Google and Amazon and venture capitalists including SoftBank, Sequoia and Tiger Global, has traditionally scrutinized deals based on asset size and not the transaction value. According to law firm Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas, Indian regulator approved over 700 fillings in the past decade alone. But things appear to be taking a shift and attempting to bring parity between India's position to those of China, U.S., and Europe.

  • Winamp, the Best MP3 Player of the 1990s, Receives Major Update (1522 characters)

    Fri, 05 Aug 2022 09:00:00 -0400Winamp, the Best MP3 Player of the 1990s, Receives Major UpdateSlashdot

    Winamp, the premiere music player of the late 1990s and early 2000s that was acquired by Radionomy from AOL in 2014, has received a major new update for the first time in four years. An anonymous reader shares an excerpt from a report via Ars Technica: The release notes for Winamp 5.9 RC1 Build 1999 say that the update represents four years of work across two separate development teams, delayed in between by the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the work done in this build focuses on behind-the-scenes work that modernizes the codebase, which means it still looks and acts like a turn-of-the-millennium Windows app. The entire project has been migrated from Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 to Visual Studio 2019, a wide range of audio codecs have been updated to more modern versions, and support for Windows 11 and https streams have both been improved. The final release will be version 5.9, with some features targeted for release in version 5.9.1 "and beyond" (version 6.0 goes unmentioned). It requires Windows 7 SP1 or newer, dropping support for Windows XP. That said, in our limited testing the "new" Winamp is still in many ways an ancient app, one not made for the age of high-resolution, high-density displays. This may cause usability problems, depending on what you're trying to run it on. But hey, for all you people out there still trying to keep hope alive, it's nice to see something on Winamp.com that isn't a weird NFT project and a promise of updates yet to come.

  • Floating point inverses and stability (3279 characters)

    Fri, 05 Aug 2022 07:22:00 -0400Floating point inverses and stabilityThe Endeavour

    Let f be a monotone, strictly convex function on a real interval I and let g be its inverse. For example, we could have f(x) = e and g(x) = log x.

    Now suppose we round our results to N digits. That is, instead of working with f and g we actually work with f and g where

    f(x) = round(f(x), N)

    and

    g(x) = round(g(x), N)

    and round(y, N) is the number y rounded to N significant figures [1].

    This is what happens when we implement our functions f and g in floating point arithmetic. We don’t actually get the values of f and g but the values of f and g.

    We assumed that f and g are inverses, but in general f and g will not be exact inverses. And yet in some sense the functions f and g are like inverses. Harold Diamond [2] proved that if go back and forth applying f and g two times, after two round trips the values quit changing.

    To make this more precise, define

    h(x) = g( f(x)).

    In general, h(x) does not equal x, but we do have the following:

    h( h( h(x) ) )  = hh(x) ).

    The value we get out of h(x) might not equal x, but after we’ve applied h twice, the value stays the same if we apply h more times.

    Connection to connections

    Diamond’s stability theorem looks a lot like a theorem about Galois connections. My first reaction was that Diamond’s theorem was simply a special case of a more general theorem about Galois connections, but it cannot.

    A pair of monotone functions F and G form a Galois connection if for all a in the domain of F and for all b in the domain of G,

    F(a) ? b? a ? G(b).

    Let F and G form a Galois connection and define

    H(x) = G( F(x) ).

    Then

    H( H(x) ) = H(x).

    This result is analogous to Diamond’s result, and stronger. It says we get stability after just one round trip rather than two.

    The hitch is that although the functions f and g form a Galois connection, the functions f and g do not. Nevertheless, Diamond proved that f and g form some sort of weaker numerical analog of a Galois connection.

    Example

    The following example comes from [2]. Note that the example rounds to two significant figures, not two decimal places.

        from decimal import getcontext, Decimal
        
        # round to two significant figures
        getcontext().prec = 2
        def round(x): return float( Decimal(x) + 0 )
        
        def f(x):  return 115 - 35/(x - 97)
        def f2(x): return round(f(x))
        def g(x):  return 97 + 35/(115 - x)
        def g2(x): return round(g(x))
        def h2(x): return g2(f2(x))
        
        N = 110
        print(h2(N), h2(h2(N)), h2(h2(h2(N))))
    

    This prints

       100.0 99.0 99.0

    showing that It shows that the function h2 satisfies Diamond’s theorem, but it does not satisfy the identify above for Galois compositions. That is, we stabilize after two round trips but not after just one round trip.

  • SoundCloud Announces Layoffs of 'Up To 20%' of Global Workforce (1621 characters)

    Fri, 05 Aug 2022 06:00:00 -0400SoundCloud Announces Layoffs of 'Up To 20%' of Global WorkforceSlashdot

    SoundCloud CEO Michael Weissman told employees in an email that the company "will be making reductions to our global team that will impact up to 20% of our company." "Making changes that affect people is incredibly hard. But it is one that is necessary given the challenging economic climate and financial market headwinds," he added. "Today's change positions SoundCloud for the long run and puts us on a path to sustained profitability. We have already begun to make prudent financial decisions across the company and that now extends to a reduction to our team." Billboard reports: In a statement, a rep for SoundCloud confirmed that the company "announced an approximate 20% reduction of its global workforce due to a significant company transformation and the challenging economic and financial environment." "During this difficult time," the rep added, "we are focused on providing the support and resources to those transitioning while reinforcing our commitment to executing our mission to lead what's next in music." Back in 2017, the company cut around 40% of its workforce, which then-CEO Alex Ljung said was necessary for the company to "control" its "independent future." Billboard notes that SoundCloud has moved towards profitability in the five years since. "The company obtained a $170 million infusion led by The Raine Group and Temasek and a $75 million investment from Pandora parent SiriusXM." This led to SoundCloud announcing its first profitable quarter in 2020. Earlier this year, the company said its annual revenue run rate was around $300 million.

    Three decades after the bloody breakup of Yugoslavia, the ethnic hostilities that ignited the conflict linger on. Kosovo declared its independence from former Yugoslav republic Serbia in 2008, but Serbia refuses to let it go. There was a flare-up in the dispute in mid-2022 that raised fears of violence on the European Union?s southeastern frontier before the situation was defused. Russia?s invasion of Ukraine added a new dimension to the standoff, with Serbia coming under pressure from the EU to

  • HBO Max, Discovery+ To Merge Into Single Streaming Platform Starting In Summer 2023 (1856 characters)

    Fri, 05 Aug 2022 03:00:00 -0400HBO Max, Discovery+ To Merge Into Single Streaming Platform Starting In Summer 2023Slashdot

    Warner Bros announced that HBO Max and Discovery+ will launch in the U.S. as a single service in the summer of 2023. Variety reports: "At the end of the day, putting all the content together was the only way we saw to make this a viable business," [said JB Perrette, CEO and president of global streaming and interactive for Warner Bros. Discovery, on the company's Q2 earnings call]. Bringing HBO Max and Discovery+ together is aimed at cutting churn so "there's something for everyone in the household," he said. WBD did not announce what the new brand name for the merged service will be, nor did execs discuss pricing for the unified streamer. Warner Bros. Discovery is initially focused on the ad-supported and ad-free versions of the combined HBO Max-Discovery+, Perrette said, but is also "exploring how to reach customers in the free, ad-supported space" with content that is totally different from what's on the premium VOD services. HBO may or may not be part of the name of the unified direct-to-consumer WBD platform; Perrette said the company is doing research on consumer perception of the HBO Max name. But, HBO will continue to be a major brand: "HBO will always be the beacon and the ultimate brand that stands for television quality," he said on the call. The merged HBO Max-Discovery+ will combine the best elements of both services, said Perrette. He said HBO Max has had "performance and customer" issues but offers a rich set of features; Discovery+ has more limited features but provides a more robust underlying delivery capability. The media company plans to take the unified HBO Max-Discovery+ platform to Latin America following the summer 2023 rollout in the United States, adds Variety. Europe will see it in early 2024; Asia Pacific in mid-2024; and additional markets in fall 2024.

    The global eradication of smallpox more than 40 years ago was one of the greatest achievements in public-health history, vanquishing a cause of death, blindness and disfigurement that had plagued humanity for at least 3,000 years. On the downside, it also led to the end of a global vaccination program that provided protection against other pox viruses. That includes monkeypox, which has been spilling over from its animal hosts to infect humans in West and Central Africa with increasing frequency

  • Error'd: Movement Activated (1265 characters)

    Fri, 05 Aug 2022 02:30:00 -0400Error'd: Movement ActivatedThe Daily WTF

    England and the United States, according to the old witticism, are two countries separated by a common language. The first sample deposited in our inbox by Philip B. this week probably demonstrates the aphorism. "I'm all in favor of high-tech solutions but what happens if I only want (ahem) a Number One?" he asked. I read, and read again, and couldn't find the slightest thing funny about it. Then I realized that it must be a Brit thing.

     

    An anonymous reader shared this with us, asking "Shouldn't it be a 4xx error code?" Poe's law makes me reluctant to explain that not all software is a web site, for fear there's an anonymous tongue planted deep within a giant cheek.

     

    Contrarian Amy K. querulously questioned "To Google, does False mean true?"

     

    Brave Bartek Horn confirmed "Testing is important. I'm not sure if they are brilliant or hypocrites." Both is always possible.

     

    Finally, another anonymous poster from the land of the frei thinks this discount might be too gut to be wirklich. "That doesn't seem right," they understated.

  • From Software Developer To CEO: Red Hat's Matt Hicks On His Journey To the Top (3209 characters)

    Thu, 04 Aug 2022 23:30:00 -0400From Software Developer To CEO: Red Hat's Matt Hicks On His Journey To the TopSlashdot

    ZDNet's Stephanie Condon spoke with Red Hat's new CEO, Matt Hicks, a veteran of the company that's been working there for over 14 years. An anonymous reader shares an excerpt from their discussion: Matt Hicks, Red Hat's new CEO, doesn't have the background of your typical chief executive. He studied computer hardware engineering in college. He began his career as an IT consultant at IBM. His on-the-ground experience, however, is one of his core assets as the company's new leader, Hicks says. "The markets are changing really quickly," he tells ZDNet. "And just having that intuition -- of where hardware is going, having spent time in the field with what enterprise IT shops struggle with and what they do well, and then having a lot of years in Red Hat engineering -- I know that's intuition that I'll lean on... Around that, there's a really good team at Red Hat, and I get to lean on their expertise of how to best deliver, but that I love having that core intuition." Hicks believes his core knowledge helps him to guide the company's strategic bets. While his experience is an asset, Hicks says it's not a given that a good developer will make a good leader. You also need to know how to communicate your ideas persuasively. "You can't just be the best coder in the room," he says. "Especially in STEM and engineering, the softer skills of learning how to present, learning how to influence a group and show up really well in a leadership presentation or at a conference -- they really start to define people's careers." Hicks says that focus on influence is an important part of his role now that he didn't relish earlier in his career. "I think a lot of people don't love that," he says. "And yet, you can be the best engineer on the planet and work hard, but if you can't be heard, if you can't influence, it's harder to deliver on those opportunities." Hicks embraced the art of persuasion to advance his career. And as an open-source developer, he learned to embrace enterprise products to advance Red Hat's mission. He joined Red Hat just a few years after Paul Cormier -- then Red Hat's VP of engineering, and later Hicks' predecessor as CEO -- moved the company from its early distribution, Red Hat Linux, to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). It was a move that not everyone liked. [...] "As he settles into his new role as CEO, the main challenge ahead of Hicks will be picking the right industries and partners to pursue at the edge," writes Condon. "Red Hat is already working at the edge, in a range of different industries. It's working with General Motors on Ultifi, GM's end-to-end software platform, and it's partnering with ABB, one of the world's leading manufacturing automation companies. It's also working with Verizon on hybrid mobile edge computing. Even so, the opportunity is vast. Red Hat expects to see around $250 billion in spending at the edge by 2025." "There'll be a tremendous growth of applications that are written to be able to deliver to that," Hicks says. "And so our goals in the short term are to pick the industries and build impactful partnerships in those industries -- because it's newer, and it's evolving."

    The Attorneys General of all 50 states have joined forces in hopes of giving teeth to the seemingly never-ending fight against robocalls. Engadget reports: North Carolina AG Josh Stein, Indiana AG Todd Rokita and Ohio AG Dave Yost are leading the formation of the new Anti-Robocall Litigation Task Force. In Stein's announcement, he said the group will focus on taking legal action against telecoms, particularly gateway providers, allowing or turning a blind eye to foreign robocalls made to US numbers. He explained that gateway providers routing foreign phone calls into the US telephone network have the responsibility under the law to ensure the traffic they're bringing in is legal. Stein said that they mostly aren't taking any action to keep robocalls out of the US phone network, though, and they're even intentionally allowing robocall traffic through in return for steady revenue in many cases. Stein said in a statement: "We're... going to take action against phone companies that violate state and federal laws. I'm proud to create this nationwide task force to hold companies accountable when they turn a blind eye to the robocallers they're letting on to their networks so they can make more money. I've already brought one pathbreaking lawsuit against an out-of-state gateway provider, and I won't hesitate to take legal action against others who break our laws and bombard North Carolinians with these harmful, unlawful calls."

  • Apple Might Remove the Headphone Jack From Its Next Entry-Level iPad (1796 characters)

    Thu, 04 Aug 2022 21:25:00 -0400Apple Might Remove the Headphone Jack From Its Next Entry-Level iPadSlashdot

    Apple's upcoming entry-level iPad is rumored to cut the 3.5mm headphone jack, joining the iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Mini, and the entire iPhone lineup. The Verge reports: MySmartPrice says the CAD renders are sourced from a case maker working on accessories for what will be the 10th-generation iPad. It's a substantial redesign from the classic iPad design that has been left largely untouched for years; Apple increased the display size slightly in 2017 and has made other internal hardware upgrades, but the overall look has remained consistent. It appears that's about to change, with the new iPad sharing the same flat-sides aesthetic as recent iPhones, iPads, the 14-inch / 16-inch MacBook Pro, and 2022 MacBook Air. Both 9to5Mac and MacRumors reported on the renders. But as always, treat these easily faked images with a healthy amount of skepticism. The home button remains present, which means so do the sizable bezels above and below the display. MySmartPrice reports that the screen should be larger than the current 10.2-inch model, and there's a redesigned camera on the iPad's back reminiscent of the module from the iPhone X. The revamped iPad has a USB-C port, which would complete the transition for Apple's tablet line. These renders also include quad speakers, and that's where I get somewhat doubtful of what we're seeing: only the iPad Pro is currently outfitted with four speakers, so if this pans out, the base-level iPad would be leapfrogging both the iPad Air and Mini in the audio department. That strikes me as unlikely, but it could also serve as Apple's justification for nixing the headphone jack from a product used in many classrooms and other scenarios where support for affordable wired headphones has been meaningful.
