T3 instances are unlimited by default, meaning that, while they won’t be throttled, they can rack up additional costs if you run CPU-hungry workloads.
T3 instances are powered by the Nitro system which means that they support network and EBS bursting.
Let’s compare EC2 instance types with 16GB RAM:

First used to be "Floating Point Unit" coprocessor (Intel 287), then GPU (Graphics Processing Unit),
and now NVidia comes with "Data Processing Unit" to help network communication in cloud / data centers. And similar to previous solution for Machine Learning SDK (NVIDIA CUDA),
for "DPU"s they have now developed "DOCA SDK". This could be part of the reason for very expensive purchase of ARM company.
Amazon / AWS has also developed similar specialized solution for AWS EC2 compute instances
called "Nitro", that offloads network, security and management to a separate board, feeing full CPU and GPU power for user tasks.
What's a DPU?
System on a chip that combines:
- Industry-standard, high-performance, software-programmable multi-core CPU
- High-performance network interface
- Flexible and programmable acceleration engines
very useful description in this podcast interview:
Intel better come with some relevant innovation soon...
Eventarc is an eventing functionality available on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), allowing customers to send events to Cloud Run from more than 60 Google Cloud sources. In a recent blog post, the company announced the general availability (GA) of Eventarc.

Tesla's new steering yoke appears to be analogous to an airplane steering yoke. But an airplane's yoke does not only control roll, but also pitch. Indeed, there's the potential for *five* extra axes (up-down, left-right, front-back, & two extra roll axes)

New P85Ds have an optional "Ludicrous Mode" hardware package available with the 90 kWh battery upgrade (thus becoming a P90D) that improves the 0 to 60 miles per hour (0 to 97 km/h) acceleration to 2.8 seconds and 1.1g

"For us, Tesla is not a competitor at all," Krafcik said. "We manufacture a completely autonomous driving system. Tesla is an automaker that is developing a really good driver assistance system."
For Musk, these two technologies exist along a continuum. His plan is to gradually make Tesla's Autopilot software better until it's good enough to work with no human supervision. But Krafcik argues that's not realistic.
"It is a misconception that you can just keep developing a driver assistance system until one day you can magically leap to a fully autonomous driving system," Krafcik said. "In terms of robustness and accuracy, for example, our sensors are orders of magnitude better than what we see on the road from other manufacturers."

The Raspberry Pi Foundation recently released the Raspberry Pi Pico, a small (21mm x 51mm), inexpensive ($4) micro-controller board based on a custom-designed RP2040 chip. The Pico can be programmed in C and MicroPython via USB. The RP2040 has two ARM cores clocking at 133MHz, 264KB internal SRAM, and 2MB QSPI Flash to connect external memories. The Pico enables a large range of applications by providing a wide range of flexible I/O options (I2C, SPI, PWM, 8 Programmable I/O state machines for custom peripheral support).

an interesting podcast story about TypeScript used for “ORM” Prisma (usually GraphQL)
mentioned “project swc” that is using Rust for making faster TypeScript compiler (20x ?)
as well as using AssemblyScript (subset of TypeScript) and Rust for WASM on CDNs.
He also mentioned “IOTS” a newer/better way for data validation based on TypeScript during runtime, better than “yup” by skipping for multiple formats of validation metadata.

Sony has, however, worked with some significant players on the project. These include vehicle manufacturer Magna Steyr.Indeed, in another video published by Sony on Monday, Frank Klein, the president of Magna Steyr, described the Vision-S as “just the starting point of our joint cooperation.”
"Magna Steyr AG & Co KG is an automobile manufacturer based in Graz, Austria, where its primary manufacturing plant is also located. It is a subsidiary of Canadian-based Magna International and was previously part of the Steyr-Daimler-Puch conglomerate.
Magna Steyr engineers, develops and assembles automobiles for other companies on a contractual basis; therefore, Magna Steyr is not an automobile marque. In 2002, the company absorbed Daimler AG's Eurostar vehicle assembly facility. With an annual production capacity of approximately 200,000 vehicles as of 2018, it is the largest contract manufacturer for automobiles worldwide. The company has several manufacturing sites, with its main car production in Graz in Austria."
Hyundai Motor and Apple are set to make a new agreement on electric cars by March, Reuters writes, citing local newspaper Korea IT News.
The companies will likely start production by 2024.
The report follows a statement from last week where Hyundai Motor said it was in early talks with Apple, after a local media outlet had reported that the two were aiming at 2027 for a launch of the car.
ID.3, which sold 56,500 units. Sales of the compact e-Golf and even smaller e-up! were 41,300 and 22,200, respectively. Audi, the group's luxury brand, sold 47,300 e-tron SUV and sportback models, while customers purchased 20,000 electric Porsche Taycans.
BMW (BMWYY) sold 44,530 battery electric vehicles in 2020, a 13% increase over the previous year, and over 148,000 plug-in hybrids. Daimler's (DMLRY) Mercedes-Benz sold more than 160,000 plug-in hybrids and pure electric vehicles last year."

"The art of Architecture is all about functionality, beauty and robustness.
But while designing 2022+ Software Architecture you must focus on Cloud Efficiency metrics first: performance, sustainability, vulnerability, observability, costs, time, maintainability...
In fact, your expertise as a Software Architect is measured by how your products meet those metrics.
It’s not just our projects, but also us, that are measured by these criteria and how well we’ve mastered these approaches."

Stimulus inspired Catalyst, GitHub’s web component set of patterns.
Stimulus’ concept of controller will be familiar to users of Rails and Laravel. Stimulus originates from some of the developers who created Rails. Direct DOM updates and using DOM state as the source of truth will equally be familiar to long-time programmers who started web development with jQuery and jQuery plugins. The Basecamp team behind Stimulus reported using in the past a variety of techniques and libraries such as jQuery for building Basecamp.

"Last week, Elastic announced they will change their software licensing strategy, and will not release new versions of Elasticsearch and Kibana under the Apache License, Version 2.0 (ALv2). Instead, new versions of the software will be offered under the Elastic License (which limits how it can be used) or the Server Side Public License (which has requirements that make it unacceptable to many in the open source community). This means that Elasticsearch and Kibana will no longer be open source software. In order to ensure open source versions of both packages remain available and well supported, including in our own offerings, we are announcing today that AWS will step up to create and maintain a ALv2-licensed fork of open source Elasticsearch and Kibana."
