Reddit: Libre ebook/e-ink reader

Monday 22nd of August 2016 08:15:09 AM


I searched already, but didn't have any success, so maybe one of you could help me out: is there some e-ink device with libre firmware? I know about openinkpot, but this project seems dead. Pocketbook is also no alternative, because, while they have a linux kernel, they are far from being libre devices.

Thanks in advance!

TuxMachines: Linux 4.8-rc3

Monday 22nd of August 2016 07:38:19 AM

After last weeks somewhat unusual patch statistics (only 1/6th
drivers), we're not back to the normal programming with rc3, and we
have the usual situation with roughly ~60% of the patch being driver
updates. It's spread out, but most of it tends to be networking, GPU,
USB and a new EDAC driver. But all of it is fairly small.

Outside of the driver department, we've got core networking, some
filesystem updates (mainly xfs, although in the diffstat afs shows up
too, but that's really from the networking changes) and a smattering
of updates all over: documentation, scheduler, some miinor arch
updates etc.

3 open source alternatives to Office 365

It can be hard to get away from working and collaborating on the web. Doing that is incredibly convenient: as long as you have an internet connection, you can easily work and share from just about anywhere, on just about any device. The main problem with most web-based office suites—like Google Drive, Zoho Office, and Office365—is that they're closed source. Your data also exists at the whim of large corporations. I'm sure you've heard numerous stories of, say, Google locking or removing accounts without warning. If that happens to you, you lose what's yours. So what's an open source advocate who wants to work with web applications to do? You turn to an open source alternative, of course. Let's take a look at three of them. Read more

Hackable voice-controlled speaker and IoT controller hits KS

SeedStudio’s hackable, $49 and up “ReSpeaker” speaker system runs OpenWrt on a Mediatek MT7688 and offers voice control over home appliances. The ReSpeaker went live on Kickstarter today and has already reached 95 percent of its $40,000 funding goal with 29 days remaining. The device is billed by SeedStudio as an “open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices.” While it can be used as an Internet media player or a voice-activated IoT hub — especially when integrated with Seeed’s Wio Link IoT board — it’s designed to be paired with individual devices. For example, the campaign’s video shows the ReSpeaker being tucked inside a teddy bear or toy robot, or attached to plant, enabling voice control and voice synthesis. Yes, the plant actually asks to be watered. Read more
