Episode 075 “Save the DRAM-a for your mama”

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

On this week’s episode, the guys discuss how much time they waste on digital platforms and social media, a potential collusion regarding DRAM, “perfect” games, and our own zombie apocalypse soundtracks!

Instagram Wants You To Know How Much Of It’s Wasting Your Time

The latest trend to hit social media is the acknowledgment that we all waste way too much time there in the course of a day. Instagram appears to be set to release a new feature that will tell you exactly how much time you spend on the app each day. On the surface it seems like a very pro-active tool to help people reign in their social media use, but is it possible they have other motivations? It’s all more data they can collect and how valuable would it be to be able to target ads to users that they know are using the app 5 hours each day versus just 2.

New Lawsuit Alleges Anti-Trust Collusion Between DRAM Manufacturers

A new lawsuit alleges that Samsung, Hynix, and Micron — which together control 96 percent of the DRAM market — have unjustly colluded to raise the price of DRAM from January 1, 2016 through February 1, 2018. The suit notes that RAM prices fell from 2014-2015, when the three companies were independently acting to increase DRAM capacities, but then sharply rose beginning in 2016 as all three firms decided to restrict DRAM growth to stop downward price pressure and to lead to a price increase.
