The move will give Samsung a seat on the Foundation's board alongside six other industry heavyweights, including IBM, Intel and Qualcomm.

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

The "Introduction to C" series is an ongoing tutorial on the C programming language. It assumes no prior knowledge of the C programming language, and only moderate knowledge of concepts in operating systems, application installation/configuration, and general computer jargon. It will guide readers through basic, intermediate, and advanced concepts in C programming, and end with the Linux programming interface, ncurses, and FLTK.

Subject: Linux And Foss Are Extremely Selfish: It's OK To Be Selfish

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

Renowned free software journalist Carla Schroder did not like the use of term selfishness and wrote an interesting piece. She took it as an insult of the thousands of free software developers. She wrote, "Let's stop insulting the many thousands of contributors to Linux and FOSS by calling them selfish, because that it is untrue and unfair. How about a bit of well-deserved praise and appreciation instead?"I think it's totally fine to be selfish, what is important is the motive behind that selfishness. In fact all of us are selfish and no matter how 'selfless' our deeds are they are driven by selfishness.

Subject: Apple Steps Into Patent Fight To Unnecessarily Silence A Little Girl

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

We've covered plenty of stories concerning Apple's ridiculously arbitrary nature as the gatekeeper for iOS apps, approving or pulling them with little reason. And, of course, we've discussed a variety of ridiculous patent lawsuits -- including one we wrote about back in March, concerning a fight over an iPad app for "augmentative and alternative communications." This was the case of the mother of a 4-year-old girl, whose daughter Maya was unable to speak, but had finally found an iPad app, called Speak for Yourself (SfY) which actually helped her communicate with her parents. There were alternative products on the market, but most did not work for Maya -- and were many time as expensive (one is described as running $7,000 -- which the family appeared to be willing to pay, but not after they realized it wouldn't work for her). And, of course, a patent dispute threatened all of this. Two companies who make some of the expensive offerings, Prentke Romich Company and Semantic Compaction Systems (PRC/SCS) have sued SfY for patent infringement, over a patent (5,920,303) on a dynamic keyboard (held by SCS, but licensed by PRC), which they claim SfY violates.
