Delos Destinations—the company behind Westworld, Shogunworld, and other living theme parks—is optimistic about US lawmakers' ability to eventually agree on and enact some kind of sweeping privacy regulation. That day will come, HBO's fictional company tells us, in 2039: 19 years from today.

Email users who subscribed to Westworld updates from Delos Destinations may have received a message today about the Privacy Act of 2039 and its projected impact on Delos experiences.

"As you may have heard," the email from "Delos" begins, "US Congress has just passed the Privacy Act of 2039, which will be effective starting today. You will begin to see the impact of this legislation roll out over the coming weeks." The missive continues:

The Raspberry Pi 4 gets a RAM upgrade: The 2GB version is now $35

Ars Technica - February 27, 2020 - 10:19pm

The Raspberry Pi 4 is approaching its first birthday in a few months, but it's already getting an upgrade: more memory. The Raspberry Pi launched in June 2019 with 1GB of RAM for $35, 2GB of RAM for $45, and 4GB of RAM for $55, but today the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced that the 2GB model is getting a permanent price drop to $35.

The rest of the specs are the same as always: a Broadcom BCM2711 SoC with four 1.5GHz Cortex A72 CPU cores, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3 ports, two USB 2 ports, a headphone/composite video jack, and two micro-HDMI ports capable of powering two 4K monitors.

Interestingly, the foundation says the 1GB version of Pi 4 is sticking around and "will remain available to industrial and commercial customers, at a list price of $35." If you were using fleets of these things for some industry project before, you can still get the old version and not change anything. For everyone else, you probably want the version with more memory. The new pricing seems to already be active at most of the recommended Pi resellers.
