Subject: Android Apps also have a backdoor to your photos

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

After throwing Apple into the fire for allowing social networking app Path to access a user's contacts without an explicit warning, further probes revealed that iOS apps could upload pictures from a user's gallery and send them to an unknown server as long as the user allowed the app to see pictures with location data on them. Today, an investigation by the New York Times revealed that Android's permissions system is allowing the same thing, although perhaps in a more nefarious way.

Subject: Patent troll lawsuits strike at the heart of free-to-play games, apps

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Over the last few years, wide swathes of the game industry, and the downloadable app industry in general, have been revolutionized by a single idea: letting people play for free while charging some of those players for in-game items. Now, it seems, a shell company is claiming that it has sole ownership of that idea, and is going to court to stop a wide range of game companies from using it.Gametek LLC has filed a lawsuit against 21 of the biggest companies in social gaming, including Facebook, Zynga (Farmville et al), Electronic Arts (The Sims Social), Wooga (Diamond Dash) and 6Waves (Ravenwood Fair), as well as separate suits against iOS game developers such as Backflip (Ragdoll Blaster) and Gameview (Tap Fish).

Subject: Btrfs And The Future Of Linux Filesystems

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Linux filesystems have a long and checkered history behind them and every now and then there is much excitement as a new filesystem is about to become mainstream and production ready. This is especially true when they are not merely a incremental improvement as with the case of Ext4 over Ext3 but take a giant leap forward as Btrfs has been promising for a number of years. So now is a good time to review what has been going on and this article does just that.

Subject: Best Podcast Software/Tools For Linux

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With the advent of Internet TV and YouTube, the popularity of the traditional podcast is currently on the decline. Also, the huge fan following and dominance of iTunes and iPods has restricted the popular medium only to the classes. That said, it’s not as if podcasts are obscure; in fact, notable celebrities like Stephen Fry, Jeremy Clarkson, and Ricky Gervais have gained huge popularity through this then-evolving medium. Moreover, the vogue of this format was such that even the German Chancellor Angela Merkel once launched her own video podcasts. Even though, now, as the medium is losing the fame that it once enjoyed, it’s not completely outmoded. In fact, there are some highly popular shows like The Linux Action Show and Linux Outlaws that still enjoy a huge fan following. So, if you’re one of those people who’re still hooked on to the medium then here’s a list of the best podcast software/tools for Linux.

Subject: CGroups on CentOS 6

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Cgroups are hierarchically designed just like processes and the child processes that inherit the attributes of the parent process. Since init is ultimately the parent of all processes, because it is the first process to start, this is structured like a tree. For processes this tree structure means that there is just a single hierarchy or tree.

Notable science fiction and fantasy novelist Piers Anthony has now gone where no author has gone before. Twitter. Anthony, who is new to Twitter is attempting to write an entire novel using only tweets.Piers started using Star Office in 2000 when he adopted Linux as his full-time OS.
