The bug with Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology between 12th generation processors and Linux is resolved.

We know that there are some problems with Linux operating systems due to the incompatibility of Intel Alder Lake processors with the hybrid architecture. Linux boss Linus Torvalds put together a few new patches on the subject.

One of the patches contains a fix for a recently discovered Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology (ITMT) issue that prevents Alder Lake processors from performing at their full performance when overclocked. This bug is very similar to the recent Ryzen CPPC2 issue in Windows 11 as it is related to task assignment and cores priority process.

This isn’t the only Linux bug Alder Lake has. There is also the Cluster Schedule issue, which causes a big performance drop in Linux 5.16 compared to previous kernels, and it will probably be resolved over time.

The new unified patch includes improvements for three issues, including a fix that fixes the ITMT issue with the help of Hardware-Controlled P-States (HWP). Other issues are related to hibernation scenarios. You can see all the details of the patch below.

Linux Patch Notes

Support for intel_pstate ITMT (Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology) on asymmetric systems with overclocking enabled (Srinivas Pandruvada).

Ensured intel_pstate to work properly on Ice Lake server systems with out-of-band performance checking enabled (Adamos Ttofari).

Fix for EPP handling in Intel_pstate when CPU is offline and online in active mode (Rafael Wysocki).

Fixed the hibernation image saving issue when using UI based on snapshot custom device file (Evan Green).

Made the hibernate code release the snapshot blocking device using the same mode when acquiring it. (Thomas Zeitlhofer)

It turns out that vertical music video streaming is being tested by Spotify.
We’ve seen a few apps like Instagram and YouTube bring TikTok-style vertical short video streams, and now Spotify is joining the caravan. The company is testing a new feature in its mobile app that adds a vertical feed of music videos that users can swipe to find something they like.

The feature was first noticed by Chris Messina in the beta version of Spotify for iOS available on TestFlight. A new icon in the app’s tab bar takes users to a new vertical video experience where they can swipe up or down to watch short video clips.

Besides swiping, a like button is also included to check information about that song. Messina believes Spotify will also take advantage of another existing feature called Canvas, which allows artists to create short videos from their songs.

Widely introduced in 2019, Canvas allows artists to create videos that accompany their music in the Spotify app. On the other hand, the feature received mixed reviews from users, as some users reported that they prefer to see only the static album art while listening to music, and that they find the video and looping images distracting.

While Spotify declined to give further details about vertical streaming of music videos, it did confirm that it is investigating the idea of ​​vertical video streaming. It is unclear whether or when the feature will be available to all users.

Tesla software error reminded once again that drivers should not rely solely on the mobile application.

Tesla owners around the world were unable to connect to their vehicles from the mobile app on Friday. The mobile app outage, first reported in the US and Canada, quickly spread to other regions in the company’s European and Asian markets. The outage came right after an upgrade to the company’s mobile app.

The Tesla app gives vehicle owners the ability to start their vehicles, access various vehicle controls, schedule maintenance/assistance and manage vehicle charging. When the application cannot be accessed, as can be seen, major problems may arise and vehicle owners may be stuck until the connection is re-established. Tesla owners can also carry the vehicle’s key card or key fob to be able to access the vehicle whenever they want, regardless of the application status.

According to a report by Electrek, connectivity issues began to appear on Friday afternoon. @hohocho, a Twitter user and news reporter from Seoul, South Korea, tweeted about the error message they received when trying to connect Tesla and Musk directly to their car:

Cho received a direct response from Elon Musk, who personally investigated the matter. Tesla CEO immediately responded and said that the company has identified the root cause of the problem, functionality has been restored.

It seems like a good idea for Tesla owners to carry the vehicle’s key fob in case of any situation. Vehicle owners can also enable their phones to be used as keys via Bluetooth connection. On the other hand, this is not the first outage on the Tesla side. In September 2020, the company’s internal and external servers were shut down for several hours and vehicle access was completely blocked.

It was stated that the end-to-end encryption feature for Facebook Messenger and Instagram platforms may remain until 2023.

It looks like Meta’s effort for the special experience it wants to offer its users is going to take longer than planned. Security chief Antigone Davis warned that the rollout of messaging with default end-to-end encryption for Facebook Messenger and Instagram has been delayed to 2023, according to The Guardian. Davis said the social media company initially planned the move to be completed by 2022, but added that extra time is needed to “get it right”.

Extra privacy is already enabled in WhatsApp. On the other hand, Facebook Messenger and Instagram still require you to initiate an encrypted chat. Let us remind you that Meta (Facebook) took a wider step towards encryption and other privacy features in 2019.

Meanwhile, the delay is said to coincide with odd timing, at least in the UK. The country will pass a safety law in 2023 that will require tech companies to prevent abuse and protect children. While it does not require encryption for backdoors, current UK Home Secretary Priti Patel does not hesitate to oppose the default encryption, claiming that it will severely limit law enforcement’s ability to track criminals. This means that Meta may face pressure to change their plans until the law goes into effect.

Davis said Meta will still have the power to detect abuse through a combination of unencrypted information and user reports. The delay can also provide time for governments to reassure and avoid potential conflict.

Twitter has solved the problem of disappearing tweets by stopping the auto-refreshing timeline.

Twitter has released an update that prevents the auto-refresh issue of the homepage feed, which causes some tweets to disappear while reading. The platform first announced in September that it was working on an update to fix the disappearing tweet issue, and said “we know it’s a frustrating experience” when tweets disappear while being read. Now finally the expected update has been released. Users will now be able to upload new tweets by clicking on a tweet counter bar that will appear at the top of their timeline, above existing tweets in their feed.

The web version of Twitter will now behave as the iOS and Android apps already do. This means that users’ timelines will not be automatically refreshed. Instead, tweets will be loaded when the user manually refreshes their feed. In this sense, we can easily say that the platform gives importance to user feedback.

Twitter has been adding new features regularly for the last few months. The company rolled out its Twitter Blue premium service to users in the US earlier this month, in addition to the voice chat room Spaces, which it launched almost exactly a year ago.

Brave desktop web browser has started offering a cryptocurrency wallet feature called Brave Wallet.
Brave has updated its desktop web browser, adding a built-in cryptocurrency wallet. Thanks to this wallet called Brave Wallet, the need to install a separate extension on your internet browser is eliminated. This gives you the opportunity to buy, sell and trade almost any asset. Additionally, Brave claims that the included wallet should carry less security risks and performance degradation than regular browser add-ons.

Brave Wallet is a self-storing wallet that still allows other wallets to be used and connects to hardware wallets like Trezor and Ledger. With this wallet, you can track crypto market data, find the best price matches, and check portfolios containing NFTs. Moreover, the wallet supports EVM compatible blockchains and is both open source and open licensed.

The wallet can be accessed from the settings page in Brave version 1.32. The company says the feature will also be coming to Brave’s mobile browsers soon, and the Solana blockchain will default to decentralized app support in 2022.

Added DLSS 2.3 and Image Scaling support with the newly released Game Ready 496.76 driver.

NVIDIA has released a new version of its GeForce Game Ready drivers for download today. With this driver you can take advantage of all the innovations of the new DLSS 2.3 version. The developed DLSS technology enables better use of motion vectors in games, while reducing ghosting and increasing image quality.

You can also start using the Image Scaling feature that NVIDIA has just introduced. The latest 496.76 Game Ready driver provides an update to the existing NVIDIA Display Scaling feature, which improves performance in all games and GeForce GPUs through the spatial scaling and sharpening algorithm. You can access NVIDIA Image Scaling through both the NVIDIA Control Panel and GeForce Experience. This feature can also be adjusted from the in-game interface and includes a per-game sharpening setting.

The NVIDIA Image Scaling feature works at the kernel level and outside of Windows. That’s why a hardware card is required to accurately capture gameplay footage. Apart from that, Shadowplay has been updated so you can take screenshots via GeForce Experience. Video capture support will also be added to Shadowplay at a later date.
