LXer: The U.S. government now has an open source policy—but it doesn't go far enough

Thursday 11th of August 2016 11:39:07 PM
The U.S. government's new Federal Source Code policy is a step in the right direction, but it would be better if "it mandated all agency source code be released under a free software license to the public in a given window of time."

  • Looking for a replacement Homeserver

    Almost exactly six years ago I bought one of these Fuloong 6064 mini PCs. The machine has been working great ever since both collecting my mail and acting as an IMAP server as well as providing public services -- it's also keyserver.siccegge.de. However jessie is supposed to be the last Debian release supporting the hardware and the system's rather slow and lacks memory. This is especially noticeable with IMAP spam filter training and mail indexing. Therefore I'm looking for some nice replacement -- preferably non-x86 again (no technical reasons).

  • Hackaday Prize Entry: An Open Source Retina Scanner

    The Open Indirect Ophthalmoscope gets around these problems by using a digital camera in the form of a Raspberry Pi camera module. This camera, with the help of a 3 W LED, is able to image the back of the eye, snap a picture, and send that image anywhere in the world. It’s a simple device that can be constructed from a few mirrors, a cheap lens, and a few 3D-printed parts, but is still very valuable for the detection of ophthalmological disorders.

  • Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT) – Top Stock from Technology Sector
  • Back from Flock 2016

    Flock is always a peculiar time of the year for me. For one it is one of the few time I get to meet with my colleagues but more than that, it's also one of the few time I get to spend a few days with fellows from this Fedora community that is so dear to me.

    I have to say that this year was no exception. Flock 2016 has been really nice. I can, of course, only speak for myself, but from what I have seen we got a lot of work done and we are now ready to move forward on quite a few subjects.

    One of the most important aspect of flock is the fact that an important part of the community gathers in one place, but we need to be careful as the conference only represent about 10% of all the Fedora contributors. So it is our duty as attendee to report to the broader community about the subjects that were discussed and the talks we have had.

    It is of course practically impossible to mention everything here, for one because I took very little note during the conference, but I would like to point out the topics that appeared the most important to me during that conference.

LXer: Secure Boot snafu: Microsoft leaks backdoor key, firmware flung wide open

Thursday 11th of August 2016 08:47:34 PM
Microsoft has inadvertently demonstrated the intrinsic security problem of including a universal backdoor in its software after it accidentally leaked its so-called "golden key"—which allows users to unlock any device that's supposedly protected by Secure Boot, such as phones and tablets.The key basically allows anyone to bypass the provisions Microsoft has put in place ostensibly to prevent malicious versions of Windows from being installed, on any device running Windows 8.1 and upwards with Secure Boot enabled.

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
