Subject: I still need Xfce's Gigolo, even in GNOME

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

Gigolo -- Xfce's "mounts anything" file-manager-helper utility has an unfortunate moniker. But what's really annoying is continually losing my ftp bookmarks in Nautilus. This never happens in Gigolo. It may be awkward, poorly designed and cringe-inducingly named, but it does what it says.

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

As part of a facelift, the Nautilus file manager has gained and lost a number of features. The Boxes VM tool and the GNOME Disks utility, which are also of interest for Cinnamon and Unity users, have matured. The account manager now allows programs to access Facebook friends and Microsoft's SkyDrive

Subject: EMI:Legitimately Afraid That Aliens Might Listen To The Beatles Without A License

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

Ah, life imitating art (or art accidentally imitating life). Earlier this year, we had Rob Reid post an excerpt and discuss his new novel, Year Zero, concerning aliens listening to Earth music for free, without a license... and then realizing that they've been infringing our copyrights for years, and owe the record labels more money than exists in the galaxy. Funny story, right?Except... as Joe Betsill points out, apparently at least EMI really was afraid that aliens might listen to music without a license.

However, the jury found that Samsung had not violated the patent that was the basis for the tablet injunction and Samsung argued the sales ban should be lifted. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh said she could not act because Samsung had already appealed.

Subject: Google's Copyright Crackdown Punishes Author For Torrenting His Own Book

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

A few years ago, Jackson, while deployed in Iraq, wrote a book about Python (the programming language) called Start Programming with Python. He decided to give away the book for free, as a "thank you" to the open source community which, he notes, has provided him with tremendous value over the years. He has always made the book available for free, and linked to various sources where you can get it. At the same time, he's offered people the option to support him via donation. He also made a little bit of money via Google AdSense ads on his site.Last week, he was contacted by a Google bot, telling him that AdSense had been disabled. Why? Because they claimed he was distributing copyrighted content illegally. The email, which I've seen, notes that his account has been disabled for the following reason:

Subject: Former Copyright Boss: New Technology Should Be Presumed Illegal Until Congress Says Otherwise

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

As you hopefully recall, Aereo is the online TV service, backed by Barry Diller, that sets you up with your very own physical TV antenna on a rooftop in Brooklyn, connected to a device that will then stream to you online what that antenna picks up. This ridiculously convoluted setup is an attempt to route around the ridiculous setup of today's copyright law -- something that Oman was intimately involved in creating with the 1976 Copyright Act. The TV networks sued Aereo, but were unable to get an injunction blocking the service. Oman's amicus brief seeks to have that ruling overturned, and argues that an injunction is proper.But he goes much further than that in his argument, even to the point of claiming that with the 1976 Copyright Act, Congress specifically intended new technologies to first apply to Congress for permission, before releasing new products on the market that might upset existing business models:

Subject: The $99 supercomputer: Adapteva turns to Kickstarter for funding to get its massively parallel, fully open Raspberry Pi killer off the ground

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

The bright, shining light in open source hardware -- [i]software-wise[/i] anyway, as the hardware ain't all that open -- has been the $35 Raspberry Pi single-board computer that runs Linux, sips power and has a great deal of the world busy crafting enclosures, fine-tuning OS images and basically geeking out. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But there will be competitors. Others that want to take the throne.
