CompuLab introduced a tiny fanless PC using 4-6 Watts of power. The Linux-ready “Fit-PC Slim” measures 4.3 x 3.9 x 1.2 inches (110 x 100 x 30mm), but includes a 500MHz AMD Geode LX800, Ethernet, VGA output, WiFi, and a 2.5-inch hard drive option, says CompuLab.
China-based Jinke Electronics is shipping an upgraded version of its electronic book reader that runs Linux. The Hanlin eReader V3 offers an 200MHz ARM9 processor, and a six-inch 800 x 600 display that uses E Ink’s power-sipping EPD (electronic paper display) module, says Jinke.
You’ve seen him here before, but it’s been a while since he popped in for a visit. You can enjoy his earlier work here, here, here or here. (Or check out his entire RHM collection). Who is that masked man? It’s the Fedora Project’s Greg DeKoenigsberg. And who better to talk about this history of the Fedora than someone who has been involved nearly every step of the way…
The best part of the FOSS world is making friends all over the planet. Because it is free and open, unencumbered by delicate corporate sensibilities and paranoia, we can trade knowledge and information freely. I think the best minds in tech are in FOSS, and most of them are generous with their time and knowledge. (Even the grumpy ones can be baited into revealing good stuff – just say something you know is way wrong and wait for the informative flames.)
I’ll close this section and this part of my survey with a brief presentation of Sonogram, a neat program for analyzing and viewing audio signals in various analysis methods and display formats. I’ve run out of space, but the screenshot in Figure 11 should give you an idea of Sonogram’s capabilities. It’s a very cool program, useful and interesting for more than its eye-candy, thanks to its wide variety of signal analysis algorithms.
10 years ago I liked the Web site bored.com. It has changed a lot since, but it has plenty for you to explore.
The Web is a big place. If you don’t like this site, you don’t have to visit it. What compels you to spend so much energy just harassing sites you dislike, as opposed to raving in/about sites that you like?
One could ask you the same question, Roy – why do you spend so much time attacking Novell, Mono, et al rather than just raving about things you do like?
You never track my activity outside this Web site. I only spend about 20% of my capacity here. I mostly advocate Free software.
Let it be added that people who run a site with a statement are different from people who visit that site just to discredit it. I am not a fan of Britney Spears, yet I never visit Britney Spears sites to attack Britney Spears or her fans.
The EPO just can't help providing special treatment to Microsoft, not only when it comes to patent applications but also when it comes to rejecting stakeholders/applicants who dare not become Microsoft customers
New stories that demonstrate patent protectionism and show how Western industry, which barely makes anything anymore, relies on patents (software and design patents included) and this self-serving patent regime perpetuates itself even in Asia, where almost everything is actually being manufactured (and often/increasingly designed/developed too)
La vergonzósa promoción de la UPC por parte de la EPO da otro paso adelánte mientras que venues de la prensa Europea (incluso canales de televisión) comienzan a explorar el arreglo secreto que es negociado por los abogados de patentes (con clientes corpórativos) y las oficinas de patentes, no el público o cualquier grupo que represente los intereses del público en general
Algo de información tras las cortinas y una detallada explicación de la dependencia finánciera sistemática, creada por Battistelli a un costode €13 millónes o más, la cuál evita una efectiva supervisión de Battistelli
In spite of malware-inspired tactics that should land Microsoft in courts of law all around the world (as a defendant), Microsoft-friendly circles pretend that the company fights for people's rights like privacy -- all this when Microsoft installs keyloggers on people's PCs without their consent and obviously against their will
