Subject: This week at LWN: ALS: Automotive Grade Linux

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

Using Linux in cars is a hot topic, even if the market is less visible to most developers than tablets or mobile phones. The Linux Foundation (LF) announced an initiative at the second Automotive Linux Summit in Gaydon, UK, however, that may result in a higher profile for automotive Linux development. The initiative is called Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), and its goal is to produce a distribution tuned for deployment throughout a vehicle, including in-dash systems, instrument clusters, and even safety-critical engine control units. A number of automakers and industry players are on board — which sparked some confusion at the announcement, because many of the same companies are also involved with existing Linux-based automotive efforts like GENIVI.

While Salesforce and Oracle are two very different companies, the fierce competitors face surprisingly similar issues when it comes to dealing with changes affecting their markets -- and both have a hard time adjusting to market forces. For one, it's the cloud. For the other, social.

Subject: Debian-Powered Drupal Configuration Policy

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

Debian's Drupal package supports putting all your Drupal sites under one install of the package. This requires some attention to detail to make a policy robust enough to support any customization that a site may need. This write-up explains how that much flexibility can be achieved with the stock Debian Drupal package on multi-tenant systems.

Subject: Is that a backdoor or an “administrative password” on your Verizon Internet router?

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

Verizon can change that password. In other to do that, they must have a master password, or as it is known in some circles, a backdoor. To Verizon, it is an administrative password. The only problem is their “administrative password” can unlock your administrative password.

Subject: "I am calling you from Windows": A tech support scammer dials Ars Technica

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

When the call came yesterday morning, I assumed at first I was being trolled—it was just too perfect to be true. My phone showed only "Private Caller" and, when I answered out of curiosity, I was connected to "John," a young man with a clear Indian accent who said he was calling from "Windows Technical Support." My computer, he told me, had alerted him that it was infested with viruses. He wanted to show me the problem—then charge me to fix it.

Subject: Android App of the Week: AIX Weather

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

As an ex-iphone user, having widgets on the homescreen (without having to jailbreak and use kludgy html based widgets) is great – and the grandaddy of all widgets is the weather widget. There are a lot of great weather widgets, but not that many that show hourly forecasts as their primary function. AIX Weather does this in a compact, informative and attractive way – bottom widget in the screenshot, just in case you were wondering. AIX Weather displays a grid/graph showing weather conditions, temperature and rainfall for the next 24 hours in your chosen location.

Subject: Open Hardware Summit open to hybrid models

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

If there was an overarching message from the speakers at last week's Open Hardware Summit, particularly those in the first morning block, it's that openness isn't that critical. It sounds strange coming from a conference whose name starts with "open," but speaker after speaker talked about hybrids and doing whatever worked, not just doing what was open.

Google has released a general purpose framework for reranking problems, ReFr (Reranker Framework), as open source. Reranking is a technique that is used when there is a model that can offer several scored hypothesised outputs; rerankers can reorder the ranked outputs based on information not available to the original model.
