Subject: Liferea: A Feed Reader That Prefers a Simple Life

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

Linux Feed Reader, aka "Liferea," is part of a highly specialized category of apps. It is an aggregator for online news feeds, weblogs and podcasts. As such, it provides a tool for pulling into one spot an eclectic collection of your newsfeed content so you do not have to go to each separate source.

Subject: Setting up a headless Calibre server

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

I have loads of epubs on my computer, and I have traditionally used Calibre's server feature to share them with our phones. In the past, I've kind of clobbered together things on an Ubuntu box that also served as my main desktop computer. That worked well in the past, but I've recently set up a headless Debian Squeeze server, and I decided to migrate my Calibre server there.

In brief, I servicized the mounting and unmounting of the network drive, and the control script I wrote for it also places netdrive symbolic links in each non-system user's home directory if a directory on the share exists in their name. Here's how it's done.

Subject: Anti-Piracy Patent Stops Students From Sharing Textbooks

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

A new patent granted this week aims to stop students from sharing textbooks, both off and online. The patent awarded to economics professor Joseph Henry Vogel hopes to embed the publishing world even further into academia. Under his proposal, students can only participate in courses when they buy an online access code which allows them to use the course book. No access code means a lower grade, all in the best interests of science. For centuries, students have shared textbooks with each other, but a new patent aims to stop this “infringing” habit. The patent in question was granted to Professor of Economics Joseph Henry Vogel. He believes that piracy, lending and reselling of books is a threat to the publishing industry.

Subject: An Overview of Apache’s Hadoop

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

Designed by the Apache Software Foundation, Hadoop is a Java-based open-source platform designed to process massive amounts of data in a distributed computing environment. Hadoop’s key innovations lay in its ability to store and access massive amounts of data over thousands of computers and to coherently present that data. Though data warehouses can store data on a similar scale, they are costly and do not allow for effective exploration of huge amounts of discordant data. Hadoop addresses this limitation by taking a data query and distributing it over multiple computer clusters. By distributing the workload over thousands of loosely networked computers (nodes), Hadoop can potentially examine and present petabytes of heterogeneous data in a meaningful format. Even so, the software is fully scalable and can operate on a single server or small network.

Subject: The GNOME Exodus and KDE

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

Over the last fourteen months, discontent with Unity and the GNOME 3 series of releases have sent GNOME users galloping in all directions in their search for alternatives. Xfce and Linux Mint's Cinnamon and Mate in particular have benefited from this search. However, one alternative that users have not considered to any extent is KDE. Considering the years in which GNOME and KDE were considered the main desktop environments for Linux, this trend is surprising at first.

Subject: If You've Ever Sold a Used iPod, You May Have Violated Copyright Law

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

The Supreme Court will soon hear a case that will affect whether you can sell your iPad -- or almost anything else -- without needing to get permission from a dozen "copyright holders." Here are some things you might have recently done that will be rendered illegal if the Supreme Court upholds the lower court decision:1. Sold your first-generation iPad on Craigslist to a willing buyer, even if you bought the iPad lawfully at the Apple Store.2. Sold your dad's used Omega watch on eBay to buy him a fancier (used or new) Rolex at a local jewelry store.3. Sold an "import CD" of your favorite band that was only released abroad but legally purchased there. Ditto for a copy of a French or Spanish novel not released in the U.S.4. Sold your house to a willing buyer, so long as you sell your house along with the fixtures manufactured in China, a chandelier made in Thailand or Paris, support beams produced in Canada that carry the imprint of a copyrighted logo, or a bricks or a marble countertop made in Italy with any copyrighted features or insignia. Here is what's going on..[size=11]I really cannot see the Judges upholding this one - Scott[/size]

Subject: AMD to add ARM processors to boost chip security

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

Back in February, AMD raised the possibility that future processors from the company might include ARM cores. The assumption at the time was that these ARM cores would be used for computation. The company has revealed its first plans for chips combining x86 and ARM cores, but it turns out they won't be used for computing at all: the embedded ARM cores will be used to provide security services.

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

Zorin OS is based on Ubuntu and, until version 6, on GNOME 2 functionality. It means system resource requirements are quite high. But what if your computer is not the newest one? Does it mean Zorin OS is not available for you? Not at all! The Zorin team releases a special edition for people like you: this is the Lite version. This operating system uses the LXDE desktop environment, not the GNOME one.
