'TikTok Detected My ADHD Before I Did'

"It's kind of embarrassing to say, but the social media app TikTok figured out I had ADHD before I did," writes 23-year-old Australian journalist Matilda Boseley in The Guardian. "For 23 years my parents, my teachers, my doctor, my psychologist and my own brain all missed the warning signs, yet somehow it only took that app's algorithm a few days to accidentally diagnose me..."

Why It's a Big Deal That No One Cares about the Next Version of Windows

The New York Times' "On Tech" newsletter observes that Microsoft releasing a new version of Windows is now "basically a nonevent." "This shows technology has evolved from a succession of Big Bang moments to something so meshed into our lives that we often don't notice it." The last version of Windows as we knew it was arguably released in 2012.

How Reliable Are Modern CPUs?

Slashdot reader ochinko (user #19,311) shares The Register's report about a recent presentation by Google engineer Peter Hochschild.

The Google researchers examining these silent corrupt execution errors (CEEs) concluded "mercurial cores" were to blame CPUs that miscalculated occ...

It’s time that I apologize for insulting my husband’s cluttered nightstand

With apologies to my late husband, wherever you are:  Several years ago I wrote a column about your messy nightstand. I compared it to my neat one, which was wordlessly poking fun at you. I heard from women all over Southern California who empathized and shared their stories of “messy husbands’ nightstand disease,” as one reader called it.
