Subject: Can Skype 'wiretap' video calls?

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

The video calling service Skype recently made a change to how it routes calls. Yawn, right? But here's where it get a little juicier: Hackers and bloggers are saying the changes, which push some of the video calling process onto Skype's own computers instead of onto random machines on the Internet, could help the app spy on users' calls, presumably at the request of a court or government.

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

Law enforcement has virtually unlimited ability to make requests to see electronic information without a warrant, and this power, while certainly disturbing from a civil liberties perspective, can also cost you money in time and resources responding to requests.

Subject: The 'Walled Garden' Approach Won't Work For Microsoft

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

This doesn’t bode well for Nokia, which has gambled it’s future on Windows, or Microsoft. Both companies would like us to believe the move was brought about by Redmond’s recent announcement there will be no upgrade path from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8 when it’s released in a few months time. The truth seems to be that consumers simply aren’t interested in portable Windows devices, despite the gee-whiz advertising that’s been showing up on network TV recently.With the exception of the Xbox, the luster seems to have worn off all Microsoft’s consumer products, including its flagship operating system. Here at FOSS Force, only 35% of our visitors are running Windows, which isn’t necessarily surprising as we’re an open source site. However, on another site we publish that doesn’t attract tech savvy visitors, Windows only accounts for 62% of our visitors, down from 91% only three years ago.

Subject: Bridge Linux 2012 Xfce Review

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

Here is another wonderfully simplified way for less advanced users to get a taste of Arch Linux. This time I will be looking at the powerful but less-known Bridge Linux distribution. With Bridge Linux it seems that very little has been neglected, and of course there is no shortage of variety. You can try Bridge Linux with Xfce, Gnome Shell, Cinnamon, KDE, or the lightweight LXDE desktop.

Subject: Searching for Search in KDE

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

Many tell me that the default search tool, Kfind; is just spiffy.No it's not. Putting in the search string "music" and setting it up to search my home folder should have a least triggered a response for the music folder within Home.It didn't. It told me there was nothing referring to "music" in my home folder.Uh, yes there is.Kfind insisted that there wasn't.We are still at odds over this. But more so, I need a good search client for my desktop. Kfind is Kfired.

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

The new voting machines to be used by the government of Flanders, Belgium, will use the Linux open source operating system, according to a report by Binnenband, a magazine targeting Flanders' public administrations. The machine itself contains no software at all, no hard disk and only a few bytes of flash memory. For each election, a tailored Linux operating software and the list of candidates is loaded on a USB drive.

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

One of the great things about free software is that it's free in both senses. But it's also a problem for the people who write it, since it makes earning a living from doing so hard. How people have managed to do that has gradually evolved over time.

HP brought Enyo -- the open source object-oriented JavaScript framework for webOS -- out of beta this week, six months after the ill-fated operating system was contributed to the open source community. Enyo 2.0 now has a community of developers, a broad set of cross-platform user interface widgets, and a layout library for building apps that work across all form factors.

As with many of the challenges we tackle, the latest project has sprawled across more articles than I ever expected when I first received the query from a reader. The question seems reasonably simple: given a month, day number and day of the week, calculate the most recent year that matches those criteria.

SSH key management is usually handled by not handling it. When it is handled, it's handled manually. Two very bad practices. There is a solution.
