      A Chrome rival noted the paper trail aspect of the new registration fee, too. "Someone pointed out the $5 registration fee for Chrome Extension Gallery creates a paper trail, which is a good point," said Mike Beltzner, director of Firefox, in a Twitter message Thursday.

    • K Desktop Environment/KDE SC)

      • Talking KDE and openSUSE with Jos Poortvliet
        Well, if you look at what GNOME 3 is attempting — we did that with the KDE Platform 4. Clean up the technology and introduce new interface and infrastructural technologies. They however took a very different approach. We redesigned our infrastructure but tried to build a familiar desktop on top. The current, default Plasma desktop, while fundamentally much more flexible, still follows the traditional panel setup. GNOME introduces GNOME Shell, a much more revolutionary desktop interface, but with far less flexibility. Of course these differences make sense — the GNOME developers had an entirely different vision with their Shell than the Plasma Developers. GNOME wanted to offer the best user experience possible, according to their design. Plasma is a technology to build user experiences... The Plasma Netbook and Plasma Mobile interfaces are examples of those and you could build a GNOME Shell like interface in a reasonably short time. Someone might do that at some point...

      • Nokia/MeeGo

        • Leak allegedly shows Nokia N9, could be first MeeGo phone
          Pictures have surfaced in a Chinese forum that reportedly show a prototype Nokia handset. Rumored to be the N9, the device closely resembles the N8 but has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The most compelling aspect of this leak is that the device appears to be running the MeeGo Linux platform rather than Symbian.

          Nokia recently confirmed that its first MeeGo-based product will launch this year, but the company hasn't officially revealed any specific details about the form factor or other characteristics. It's possible that the leaked photos of the alleged N9 handset offer the first real look at Nokia's upcoming MeeGo product.


        • Nokia, Intel say MeeGo software off to good start
          Nokia and Intel said on Tuesday their venture to create a new cellphone software, seen as crucial for Nokia to re-assert itself as the leading producer of high-end handsets, had made a solid start.


        • Mobile 3D planned for MeeGo Linux
          Amid much talk of paradigm shifts, Heikki Huomo, director of the University's Center for Internet Excellence, co-founded by Nokia, said: "We are starting the research and we believe we are able to find new use paradigms beyond the current use paradigms."


        • Review: Nokia N900 – the ultimate Linux phone?
          At first glance the N900 seems impressive. It has a 600MHz Arm Cortex CPU, 256MB of ram and 32GB of onboard storage, with a high resolution, crystal clear 3.5in screen. Naturally, it also has all the basics for a smartphone of this calibre, which means 3G, Bluetooth 2.0, USB connector, and 802.11g wi-fi. The N900 even has a built-in FM transmitter for listening to your music over your car stereo wirelessly. But does this combination make for a decent phone and a usable netbook?

        • Motorola Milestone to get Android 2.2 in Europe and Korea in late Q4, Dext 2.1 upgrade looking bleak
          Until now, Milestone owners could do nothing but to envy Droid users rocking the Froyo upgrade; however, according to Motorola's recently published timeline, the former device is now slated for the same dessert party in Europe and Korea in Q4 -- specifically, "beginning at the end of this year," which could well mean the majority of users won't get the update until 2011 (!). Meanwhile, said upgrade is still "under evaluation" for Canada, Latin America, Mexico and Asia-Pacific sans Korea.


        • Android big winner as smartphone sales increase 50%

While it is a good year away from its targeted delivery date (which can change at a moment's notice, mind you), Bangalore-based Allgo Embedded Systems has come up with a prototype of their own tablet which is touted to cost approximately $50. Yes, the STAMP tablet will be Android- or Linux-powered (to keep the costs down, and with the rising popularity of the open source operating system, why not?) while featuring a 7" touchscreen display.


      • Archos will showcase five Android tablets
        WHY HAVE ONE when you can have five seems to be Archos' approach with the announcement today that it will showcase Android-based "Internet tablets" with screen sizes from 2.8-inches to 10-inches.








Free Software/Open Source



  • 11 Biggest Open Source Success Stories That is Changing The World As We Know It
    GNU/Linux is probably the biggest thing ever happened with Open Source. Richard Stallman, founder of Open Source movement, spearheaded a project to build a "complete Unix-compatible software system" based entirely of free software(free as in freedom).

    Project was called GNU(GNU is Not Unix). During the same time Linus Torvalds built a Kernel(which is otherwise known as the heart of an opearting system) and made it Open Source. He named it Linux. The Linux kernel and GNU tools(libraries, compilers, text editors etc) combined to become GNU/Linux operating system(popularly known as 'Linux').


  • AdroitLogic Open Sources the High Performance and Lightweight Enterprise Service Bus - UltraESB
    AdroitLogic Private Ltd. announced today that it is open sourcing the code of its Enterprise Service Bus the UltraESB, under the GNU Affero General Public License. The UltraESB first announced in January, becomes the first Open Source ESB to claim support for Zero-copy proxying of requests with Java Non-blocking IO and Memory Mapped files to support extreme levels of performance.


  • Oracle

    • The Five Winners of Oracle suing Google
      When Oracle sued Google over its use, or as Oracle would have it, Google's misuse of Java intellectual property in Android, the first questions were why and what did Oracle hope to gain?

      My only pet theory is straightforward and simple: Oracle wants to skim big-bucks from Android. But, even if a miracle happens and Oracle wins every one of their claims, we're still talking years before Oracle sees a single red-cent.

      [...]

      3) MeeGo: MeeGo, the Intel-Nokia open-source Linux for devices, doesn't have the cash to give Larry Ellison a big present, but this group owes him one too. I think that MeeGo, which uses the traditional Linux desktop development tools instead of Android's Java-based interface, now, has a real chance to get some of the smartphone market. Before Oracle's lawsuit, the best I'd hoped for MeeGo, given Android's popularity in smartphones, was to carve out its own niche. I thought it might do well, for example, with car entertainment and navigation systems. Now, I think it has a real shot in phones as well.

      4) Patent Litigators: Some people have said that Oracle is acting like a patent troll. I disagree. Patent trolls sit on patents and wait for someone to mistakenly spend money building something from a forgotten idea and then jump on them to rip them off for millions. Oracle makes billions by actually creating software; it's just that the company would like to make a few hundreds of millions by jabbing Google in their soft IP (intellectual property) belly as well.

      OpenSSH 5.6 has just been released. It will be available from the mirrors listed at http://www.openssh.com/ shortly.


    • Inkscape 0.47
      The open source community has worked hard to develop apps with professional-level features. One of the shining examples is Inkscape, a free drawing application that uses X11, a way to run Linux apps on the Mac without a lot of trouble. When you start Inkscape, X11 loads automatically. The menus do not match the Mac's normal user interface but when you save files, they are saved to the Finder.

  • Internet/Net Neutrality/DRM

    • Sorry, you can't open that book here
      Every content industry bounds into digital media vowing not to make the same mistakes of the music industry, an industry which spent a decade setting the global standard for “doing it wrong”. Ironically, the music industry has been slowly getting its act together – with a few exceptions – in recent years, while the books business, the film studios and the TV companies have doddered in, acting like they want to make it as hard as possible for anyone to enjoy their content and giving the impression that they really hate their customers.




  • Intellectual Monopolies



    • Copyrights

      • Did The RIAA Just Destroy Its Own Argument Concerning Innocent Infringement?
        That seems to undermine the claims that of course people knew it was illegal, doesn't it? Not surprisingly, the Sherman interview is chock full of other bizarre statements. Even just this one little quote is pretty funny with him trying to somehow redefine the lawsuits as a successful PR strategy. Of course, if they were actually successful in educating people, then wouldn't there be fewer people accessing unauthorized music today than when they started? Of course, the exact opposite is true. The rest of the article is filled with similarly laughable attempts by Sherman to pretend that the RIAA's strategy over the past decade has been successful, rather than a complete disaster that has helped the major record labels speed up their own demise.


      • Looming copyright crackdown could stifle Internet users, researchers, academics say
        Teachers and students across Canada are trying to stop what they say is an attempt by private industry to cash in on research in the digital age, the consequences of which, they say, could radically redefine how research is conducted in and outside academia.

        The case will be heard this fall in front of Canada's Copyright Board and is expected to highlight the complexities of updating an analog-era copyright law to cover works for an academic community that's adapting quickly to the digital era.


      • New Research Suggest Google Book Search Helps Publishers A Lot More Than It Hurts
        Obviously, this seems to go beyond just Google's book search, in showing that greater access can certainly lead to greater revenue and profits for those who embrace it. Definitely another worthwhile paper to read on the subject.




      • ACTA



        • RIAA: U.S. copyright law 'isn't working'
          The Recording Industry Association of America said on Monday that current U.S. copyright law is so broken that it "isn't working" for content creators any longer.

          RIAA President Cary Sherman said the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act contains loopholes that allow broadband providers and Web companies to turn a blind eye to customers' unlawful activities without suffering any legal consequences.

          "The DMCA isn't working for content people at all," he said at the Technology Policy Institute's Aspen Forum here. "You cannot monitor all the infringements on the Internet. It's simply not possible. We don't have the ability to search all the places infringing content appears, such as cyberlockers like [file-hosting firm] RapidShare."


        • Joint Statement on the 10th Round of Negotiations
          The 10th round of negotiations on the proposed Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) was held in Washington, D.C. from 16 – 20 August 2010, and was hosted by the United States of America. United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Deputy United States Trade Representative Miriam Sapiro welcomed the delegations and thanked them for all of their work in the negotiations.
