If in North Korea virtual spaces and cryptocurrencies are used to circumvent American sanctions, then their southern neighbors have problems of a different nature.

A district court in Uijeongbu, South Korea, has sentenced a 30-year-old man to four years in prison for sexually harassing teenagers in the metaverse.

South Korean jailed for 4 years for harassment in the metaverse

According to local media, the defendant registered on one of the Korean virtual reality platforms. From December 2021 to March 2022, he interacted with junior and high school students through his virtual character. Posing as a peer, he entered into their confidence, led obscene conversations and asked to send intimate photos through the messenger. The district judge declared that the defendant had violated South Korea’s Child and Youth Sexual Protection Act:

The crime is very serious, because the victims were children and adolescents who do not have an established idea of ​​\u200b\u200bsexuality. They were unable to protect themselves from perverse harassment and bring the perpetrator to justice. However, the defendant confessed to the crimes, and the verdict was based on the fact that the photographs were not distributed or used to generate income.

In addition to imprisonment, the person involved will undergo a mandatory 80-hour treatment program for sexual deviations and will not be able to hold positions in organizations working with children for seven years.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more

Intel Raptor Lake processors will be unveiled in a few hours, but now we have the opportunity to look at prices that may be in line with the recommended ones.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive?  Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

The fact is that the new items were lit up in the NewEgg store, and marked as recently released. Given the size and status of this network, it is possible that the prices listed there now correspond to those that Intel itself will reveal in a few hours.

And if so, then the same price increase that the company warned about earlier will take place.

  • Core i9-13900K – $660 ($70 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i9-13900KF – $630 ($65 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700K – $450 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700KF – $430 ($45 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600K – $330 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600KF – $310 ($45 more than its predecessor)

Thus, we will get a rise in price by 10-15%. If we talk about competition with AMD, then the Ryzen 5 7600X at a price of $300 is 10% cheaper than the Core i5-13600K, the Ryzen 7 7700X at a price of $400 is more than 10% cheaper than the Core i7-13700K, and the Core i9-13900K at a price of $630 is significantly more expensive than the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X, but significantly cheaper than the top-end Ryzen 9 7950X. We wrote about the performance of new AMD products yesterday.

Both smartphones had flagship specs for their time, but the 1GB and 2GB of RAM in the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 might not be enough for a full system at the moment.
