Plus I would imagine a huge benefit is that you can use the UI for this without needing to physically touch anything that would get your hands contaminated or get the device dirty either. Pretty amazing stuff!

What would be really cool is if you can start to place virtual stereoscopic and volumetric displays over a patient. That way you were not just getting sterility, you were getting access to better visualization.

TheRealKuni ,

I’m sure as this type of AR tech evolves that’s the kind of thing we’ll see. It’s pretty cool.

Apple Vision is not the game changer, it’s an expensive dev kit. The tech still needs to shrink quite a bit.

Is this for Home edition and Enterprise as well? 🤔

I'm really annoyed by this, thanks for verifying.

Ask for Windows 11 Enterprise. I know that it's got the same "recommended" thing going on but it can be completely disabled via Group Policy and / or the Registry.

No need, I am on Enterprise.

Settings > Personalization > Start and turn off the toggle for “Show recommendations for tips, app promotions, and more.”

IggyTheSmidge ,

For Enterprise/Education you can disable the 'recommended' section entirely via group policy. Doesn't work for Pro/Home versions though, from what I remember.

That would be odd. Usually Pro supports all the same group policy settings, and group policy settings usually just mess with registry keys that also work on Home edition.

It's not 100%, but I've not run into any significant differences between Enterprise and Pro yet (besides the ability to centrally manage group policy etc).

Edit: On 10 Pro you can disable it entirely via Group Policy. It's how I have mine configured.

For all types you can easily manage it in the GUI too.

That is what everyone has been waiting and longing for!

I wonder how they decide what ads to put there

Me too. I figure the answer will be incredibly invasive user behavior tracking, since lately that seems to always be what we learn has been happening, when we finally learn about it.

bloodfart , in South Korean military set to ban iPhones over ‘security’ concerns

SEOUL - South Korea’s military is considering a comprehensive ban on iPhones in military buildings due to increasing concerns about possible leaks of sensitive information through voice recordings, according to multiple sources on April 23.

The sources, a group of ranking officers who wished to speak on condition of anonymity, said that the Air Force headquarters released an internal announcement on the military’s intranet server on April 11, instructing a complete prohibition on any device capable of voice recording and which does not permit third-party apps to control inherent functions, effective June 1, with iPhones cited as items subject to the ban.

According to the document, the decision to ban iPhones in the military came from joint meetings held by the headquarters of the army, navy and air force, located at Gyeryongdae in South Chungcheong province.

The document was quoted as stating: “It’s inevitable to block any kind of voice recording, not just formal communications including meetings, office conversations, business announcements and complaints from and consultations with the public, but also informal communications such as private phone calls (within military buildings).”

According to the document, “there has been an ongoing review regarding the potential extension of this ban to all subordinate units”, with the army headquarters having conducted a trial of the ban since April. If the ban is extended, it will likely go beyond the Gyeryongdae area to include all other units across the nation.

The devices set to be prohibited include all types of smartwatches and wearable devices as well.

Currently, about 10,000 personnel, including some 6,000 officers, are estimated to be on duty at the Gyeryongdae defence centre alone. For security reasons, the exact number is not disclosed to the public.

The specific type of security threat they’re talking about is the threat of “our in-house software can’t control iphones”.

I may be misremembering, but under ios I think that goal is accomplished with mdm instead of an app?

Hmmm. I'm interested in the difference between new and old WordPress.

I wonder if it's when it switched to the Gutenberg editor maybe?

I'm mostly just curious, as I haven't done anything with Wordpress in just shy of a decade.

Unrelated, but wordpress supports activitypub, but I have yet to see a wordpress blog on the fediverse.

Would love to see the same tests with an adblocker installed.

Yes, same.

Be fun to see the same M3Max with an ad and tracker blocker. See how much their top line improves.

llii , in How web bloat impacts users with slow devices

I feel that:

There are two attitudes on display here which I see in a lot of software folks. First, that CPU speed is infinite and one shouldn't worry about CPU optimization. And second, that gigantic speedups from hardware should be expected and the only reason hardware engineers wouldn't achieve them is due to spectacular incompetence, so the slow software should be blamed on hardware engineers, not software engineers.

How can I check this?

I tried loading (new) Reddit homepage, and based on Network tab in Firefox without any prior cache it transferred 19.20MB compressed to 15.29MB.
But that also includes any pictures shown.
Loading lemmy.world homepage transferred 5.88MB compressed down to 1.82MB.
old.reddit.com 2.82MB compressed down to 947kB. Quite a difference.

Just for comparison, loading Eaglercraft 1.5.2, a fully functional Minecraft JavaScript clone, complete with LAN multiplayer support took 8.35MB.

But what exactly is this measuring?

efficiency?

But what exactly is this measuring?

Hard to tell honestly.

phpBB and Wordpress are websites engines. It doesn't take into account the content of the websites they are serving, and more importantly the bloated advertising scripts that might be added to the sources.

Mastodon? What are we even talking about here? The content? The engine? Which instance?

So, while it's true that some websites are bloated and some are not, OP's post says absolutely nothing about it. Size means nothing when a single picture can easily outweigh a huge javascript file mining some bitcoins. For the same reasons, loading times mean nothing either.

Memory usage, FPS, Cumulative Layout Shift, First Input Delay, Largest Con­tent­ful Paint, any data gathered from the performance API. There are tons of efficient way to measure a website's efficiency.

Finally, a website can fail to load for many reasons. First of which can be a 504 Bad Gateway Timeout, which is an event based on an arbitrary value on the server's side.

bloodfart ,

The author of the article used chrome with a cpu throttling setting at 10x to make a comparison between an m3 and itself at 1/10th cpu. I imagine you could check it that way!
