Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 19H1 test build to Insider testers. Today’s build, 18252, is the first 19H1 test build to go to both Skip Ahead and Fast Ring testers simultaneously. Now that the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (Redstone 5) is done and rolling out to the mainstream, Microsoft is moving its Insiders on to the next feature release.
Build 18252 includes the ability to use the Settings app to configure advanced Ethernet IP settings. There’s support now for configuring a static IP address, as well as setting up a preferred DNS server. (These settings used to be in the Control Panel; now they’re on the connection properties page under IP settings, Microsoft officials said.)
There’s a new icon for disconnected from the Internet as of this build, which replaces the individual disconnected icons for Cellular, Wi-Fi and Ethernet.
Today’s test build includes a bunch of other changes, improvements and fixes in everything from the Task Manager to Windows Hello. See Microsoft’s blog post for the full list. The October 3 blog post about the build also includes a number of known issues.
Microsoft still has yet to release any major new features as part of its 19H1 test cycle, but it’s still early days. Microsoft is expected to roll out 19H1 to the mainstream starting around April 2019.
Today’s blog post includes a couple of other tidbits. Microsoft has added support for Insider test rings to System Center Configuration Manager. And it is now releasing its Insider test documentation as open source so that Insider testers can help create and modify that documentation.
The Real Reason Michael Burry Bet Millions Against Apple
Wright explains that Buffett is a long-term investor while Burry shorts stock on short-term plays. Buffett is not in the business of predicting company stock prices but invests in companies that he believes have business value down the road. Burry, on the other hand, is looking at what Apple stocks will do in the near future. Inflation, supply chain issues complicating the technology sector, China’s COVID-19 lockdowns, and the performance of NASDAQ are bound to affect Apple stock in the short term.
Burry has been open about his vision of the market, assuring that “the greatest speculative bubble of all time in all things” is inevitably leading to the “mother of all crashes” with investors piling up on cryptocurrencies (via Business Insider). Burry’s put options on Apple stocks give him the right (but not the obligation) to sell shares at a certain price, at a certain time. “If Apple doesn’t fall beneath a certain price by that time, the put options would expire worthless,” Billy Duberstein explains in a separate post for Fool.
Benzinga adds that Burry’s bearish position is valued at around $36 million if he exercises it. It is the largest position in his portfolio. Apple stock had a big run, quadrupling its stock price since early 2019. However, by May 2022, Apple stocks are down 20% year-to-date. The company from Cupertino saw a 16% drop in the stock price in this past quarter alone. Burry’s portfolio reveals his confidence in the U.S. market. He slashed it from 20 holdings to just six in the third quarter of 2021, with a value that dropped from $140 million to $42 million. In the fourth quarter, he swapped three of his remaining six holdings, lifting his portfolio to $74 million. “Short sellers on a stock have nothing, zero, zilch, nada, to do with the success or failure of the underlying business,” Burry tweeted on April 27.
The Real Reason America Banned The Land Rover Defender
The 1993 Land Rover Defender 110 was sold in the United States, but it was extensively modified to meet the safety regulations required by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). Unlike the models that were sold abroad, the U.S. version of the Land Rover Defender 110 was fitted with brush guards, a roof rack, an external roll cage, and an air conditioning system (via Autoweek). The Land Rover Defender 90 was introduced to the North American market the next year to replace the 110 models.
As fate would have it, Land Rover’s dream to continue selling the Defender 90 in the United States was cut short in 1998 when new airbag regulations came into effect. As per the regulation, all new vehicles sold in the United States were to be fitted with airbags on the front passenger and driver seats. Ironically, Land Rover installed dual airbags in other models that were available in the North American market, like the Discovery (via the IIHS). The Defender wasn’t given the same treatment, so it was ultimately banned because it couldn’t meet the safety regulations.
The Incredible And Controversial Evolution Of Elon Musk’s Neuralink
During a 2021 interview with the Wall Street Journal, Musk outlined his desire to put a Neuralink chip in a person at some point in 2022. During the interview, Musk described the device as “safe,” “reliable,” and “something that can be removed safely.” Musk again confirmed the first patients the device would be tested on would be people who suffer from serious, debilitating spinal cord injuries such as quadriplegics and tetraplegics (people who have lost the ability to voluntarily control the movement of multiple limbs). The world’s richest man went on to say he is “cautiously optimistic” about Neuralink’s chances of success.
Although Neuralink is still waiting for FDA approval, some of the company’s direct rivals have been given the green light to proceed with human testing. New York-based Synchron Inc., which has been around since 2012, got the go-ahead in 2021 and announced the enrollment of their first patient in early May 2022 (via Businesswire). Like Neuralink, Synchron is developing a product that will allow the human brain to interface with existing electronic devices. Synchron also intends to use its device to improve the lives of people with debilitating medical conditions. So Neuralink may one day change the world, but there’s a good chance another company will get there first.
