Syria

“It’s being called a ‘revolt’ by intelligence pros who are paid to give their honest assessment of the ISIS war—but are instead seeing their reports turned into happy talk.

More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned.”

I hate to use the Daily Beast as a source after all their atrocious lies about Amanda Knox, but I guess they’re the source of the story.

Windows 10

If anyone is planning to buy a new computer when Windows 10 comes out (July 29) I strongly advise that they wait a little bit.

On August 15, Intel will be unveiling a new generation of CPUs and motherboards (a new CPU-socket too, so new hardware will not be compatible with older hardware).

I am unsure if Intel will be shipping in volume the same day they announce, or whether they will take a month or two before the stuff is available. Historically both have happened when they’ve introduced new hardware.

But either way, if anyone buys a Windows 10 computer on July 29, their new computer will be obsolete in less than a month.
