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.
Google Cloud Workflows Now Generally Available
Google has recently announced that Google Cloud Workflows, the service to orchestrate Google Cloud and HTTP-based API services with serverless workflows, is now generally available. Workflows Connectors are now in public preview.

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)

governed top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h) and it accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour (0 to 97 km/h) in 3.2 seconds (tested to 3.1 seconds), under "Insane Mode", with 1g of acceleration. 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

The Generics Proposal is Now Really, Truly Accepted — Last week it was a ‘likely accept’ but now you can breathe easy.. all they have to do is the hard work of finishing the implementation(!) What can we move on to demanding of Go next?

"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).
