Subject: UK judge: Apple notice on Samsung a - breach of order - , orders new notice

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

A UK judge was unamused by Apple's interpretation of an order requiring the company to publicly acknowledge that Samsung didn't copy Apple's designs. On Thursday, the UK Court of Appeal gave Apple a slap on the wrist for the notice it posted earlier this week, which used a direct quote from High Court Judge Colin Birss saying Samsung's tablets were "not as cool" as Apple's. Apple now has 24 to 48 hours (depending on which source you read) to post an updated statement, perhaps this time with a little less snark. "I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this," Judge Robin Jacob said during a hearing in London on Thursday, according to Bloomberg. "That is a plain breach of the order."

A group of colleagues—Stoney Jackson (Western New England University), Sean Goggins (Drexel University), Darci Burdge (Nassau Community College), Lori Postner (Nassau Community College), and Greg Hislop (Drexel University)—and I have recently been awarded an NSF TUES Type 2 grant we’re calling OpenFE for Open Faculty Expertise. The expertise that we’re trying to build here is in the area of supporting student learning via participation in humanitarian FOSS (HFOSS) projects.

Subject: Pear Linux 6 review

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

Pear Linux 6 is based on Ubuntu 12.04, and features many new and cool features. In fact, the version of Pear Shell that comes with Pear Linux 6 is a near-complete overhaul of the edition in Pear Linux 5. And by my assessment, it is probably the best GNOME Shell adaptation available. It is most definitely better than the stock GNOME Shell.

Subject: How To Secure Apache2 With LinOTP

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

This Howto describes the way to set up two factor authentication with one time passwords for Apache2. We assume, that you have already set up your LinOTP server. You can download Debian and Ubuntu packages or you can install the system using the Python Package Index. It provides a good quick start to get the service up and running for demo purposes (check for the latest version).

I will say that it is extremely irresponsible of Phoronix to make a big deal about this this before giving anyone knowledgeable (which unfortunately does not include any Ubuntu kernel engineers, since as far as I know they don't have any file system specialists on staff) to comment on the bug.

Subject: FTC staff: US should sue Google for misuse of standards-based patents

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

In a decisive twist to the sprawling smartphone wars, it appears the government intends to sue some of the participants over their use of patents. The first targets won't be the companies that initiated the battles, though—companies like Apple, Kodak, and Microsoft that have gone on the offensive. Instead, it looks like Google and possibly Samsung could be the targets of government lawsuits. Staffers at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have formally recommended the government bring an antitrust lawsuit against Google, according to sources cited by Bloomberg. Now FTC commissioners will have to decide whether to whether to act on that recommendation. A decision will likely come after the presidential election on November 6.The problem is Google's use of so-called standards-essential patents. Those are patents it has already disclosed to a standards-setting body as being important to the functioning of some type of technology standard.

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

Word processors are a general application software that are perfect for constructing business documents, letters, batch mailings using templates, etc. However, many word processors are too obtrusive and distracting for writers. What is needed is software that helps concentrate on the content of the novel, sketch out the chapters and scenes, work out the best structure, import research, add locations, characters and objects.

Subject: Why We Need New Rights to Privacy

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

According to Surden, big data networks persistently chip away at privacy interests and expand the surveillance society’s reach — and we’re about to see a lot more of it. Surden argues that privacy is safeguarded by barriers that make it hard for others to thwart our interest in limiting access to information. Bring down these walls — which Surden calls constraints — and prying eyes can capitalize on newfound vulnerability. Accordingly, we need to reassess how we think about our privacy rights, and what personal information should be included in that class.

Subject: Let’s Limit the Effect of Software Patents, Since We Can’t Eliminate Them

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

Patents threaten every software developer, and the patent wars we have long feared have broken out. Software developers and software users – which in our society, is most people – need software to be free of patents.The patents that threaten us are often called “software patents,” but that term is misleading. Such patents are not about any specific program. Rather, each patent describes some practical idea, and says that anyone carrying out the idea can be sued. So it’s clearer to call them “computational idea patents.”
