Linus Torvalds Calls Intel Patches 'Complete and Utter Garbage'

Slashdot.org - 12 hours 17 min ago
An anonymous reader writes: On the Linux Kernel Mailing List, Linus Torvalds ended up responding to a long-time kernel developer (and former Intel engineer) who'd been describing a new microcode feature addressing Indirect Branch Restricted Speculation "where a future CPU will advertise 'I am able to be not broken' and then you have to set the IBRS bit once at boot time to *ask* it not to be broken." Linus calls it "very much part of the whole 'this is complete garbage' issue. The whole IBRS_ALL feature to me very clearly says 'Intel is not serious about this, we'll have a ugly hack that will be so expensive that we don't want to enable it by default, because that would look bad in benchmarks'. So instead they try to push the garbage down to us. And they are doing it entirely wrong, even from a technical standpoint. I'm sure there is some lawyer there who says 'we'll have to go through motions to protect against a lawsuit'. But legal reasons do not make for good technology, or good patches that I should apply." Later Linus says forcefully that these "complete and utter garbage" patches are being pushed by someone "for unclear reasons" -- and adds another criticism. The whole point of having cpuid and flags from the microarchitecture is that we can use those to make decisions. But since we already know that the IBRS overhead is huge on existing hardware, all those hardware capability bits are just complete and utter garbage. Nobody sane will use them, since the cost is too damn high. So you end up having to look at "which CPU stepping is this" anyway. I think we need something better than this garbage.

More Wall Street Pundits Caution Against Investing In Bitcoins

Slashdot.org - Sun, 01/21/2018 - 23:34
Peter Boockvar is the Chief Investment Officer of Bleakley Financial Group, a $3.5B wealth management firm -- and he predicts "an epic crash will hit the cryptocurrency market," according to CNBC. "He isn't sure if it'll come to a grinding halt or be a slow and steady drop -- but he says it's coming." "When something goes parabolic like this has, it typically ends up to where that parabola began," he said on CNBC's "Futures Now." Boockvar, a CNBC contributor, contends bitcoin is in danger of dropping 90 percent from current levels. He calls it a classic bubble. "I wouldn't be surprised if over the next year it's down to $1,000 to $3,000," he added. That's where bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency player, was trading less than 12 months ago. Friday afternoon it was trading above $11,000. Meanwhile, today the International Business Times chronicled the predictions of tech billionaire Mark Cuban. In June of last year as bitcoin was climbing toward the $3,000 threshold, Cuban cautioned potential investors about jumping in on the bandwagon... "[C]rypto is like gold. More religion than asset. Except of course gold makes nice jewelry." He told his followers at the time that he wasn't questioning the value of Bitcoin but was questioning the "valuation" and said , "I think it's in a bubble. I just don't know when or how much it corrects." Cuban suggested that when everyone is "bragging about how easy they are making [money]," that indicates there is a bubble happening... Still, the Dallas Mavericks owner was open to the idea of using cryptocurrencies as a volatile investment vehicle. "If you're a true adventurer and you really want to throw the Hail Mary, you might take 10 percent and put it in Bitcoin or Ethereum," he said. Cuban also cautioned, "If you do that, you've got to pretend you've already lost your money"... Showing just have far Cuban has come on bitcoin and cryptocurrency, he announced earlier this week that his Dallas Mavericks will accept bitcoin and Ethereum as a method to pay for tickets starting next season. Even if the tech investor doesn't fully believe in cryptocurrency, he's clearly willing to try to profit off it...

Research Affiliates: 10-Year Asset Class Returns Forecast, Q1 2017

MyMoneyBlog.com - Sun, 01/21/2018 - 23:00

Investment advisory firm Research Affiliates has an interactive Asset Allocation tool that provides estimates of expected returns for many different asset classes and model portfolios. Their default model is based on valuations like the CAPE (cyclically adjusted PE, or Shiller PE) ratio that divides the current price by 10 years worth of earnings. If you believe that valuations like price/earnings and price/book matter, then this database helps show you what is relatively “cheap” or “expensive” in such terms.

Here’s an updated snapshot of expected returns for several major asset classes, as of January 2018. Click to enlarge.

You can see that Emerging Markets and Developed International (EAFA or Europe, Australasia and the Far East) have the highest current expected return. This is explored more in-depth in their article CAPE Fear: Why CAPE Naysayers Are Wrong. Here’s a chart that summarizes their position:


  • US stocks are still relatively expensive based on historical values. Future 10-year expected average returns are around 1% above inflation.
  • Broad US (Core) Bonds, Long-term US Treasuries, Short-Term Treasuries, and TIPS are all expected to have low forward returns. Their low current yields offer little alternative.
  • Emerging Markets stocks, Developed International (EAFA) stocks, and Emerging Markets bonds (both local currency) are relative bright spots with the highest future expected returns.

These numbers are not very useful as a timing to jump in and out of something. The US has been highly valued for a couple years, yet returns for those last two years have also been quite high. However, Research Affiliates maintains that CAPE and similar valuation tools are a powerful predictor of long-term market returns.

I like holding both US and international stocks in my personal portfolio, and I have been slightly overweight emerging markets for a decade. Emerging markets have been hurting my overall returns for a while now, but knowing that they are “cheap” makes it easier to keep holding them in the hopes of riding the next upward wave. Of course, I’m holding onto my US stocks as well.

p.s. The most recent GMO letter by Jeremy Grantham also puts Emerging Markets as the “single reasonably-priced asset class”.

Will We One Day Use Tractor Beams In Manufacturing?

Slashdot.org - Sun, 01/21/2018 - 21:34
An anonymous reader quotes CNET: Engineers from the University of Bristol have been able to trap (essentially levitate) objects using an acoustic tractor beam that is larger than the wavelengths of sound used by the device... [A]pplications could include touchless control of drug capsules or micro-surgical implements inside the human body using sonic tractor beams. It could also become possible to move and manipulate fragile items in a whole new way. "I'm particularly excited by the idea of contactless production lines where delicate objects are assembled without touching them," said Bristol's Bruce Drinkwater, who oversaw the work. Futurism.com adds that other researchers are also working on tractor beams in manufacturing, including one at the University of Glasgow. "The group demonstrated the process by assembling a pattern of solder beads using an optoelectronic trap, taking the liquid away, then applying heat to fuse the beads together and forge electrical connections," they report, adding "It should be possible to manipulate as many as 10,000 beads at the same time."
