Raspberry Pi is the new target to trigger Tizen adoption rate

It’s needless to say that with a huge number of Raspberry Pi users worldwide, the community keeps growing by the minute and the list of ROMS available for this dirt cheap PC on a card is endless. With the hardware readily available everywhere, Samsung sees the Raspberry Pi (Pi 2 to be precise) as the right platform to grab hold of developers and build their interest towards Tizen. Read more

  • SCO v. IBM: Judge Rules for IBM in Interferance Claims
    Two SCO stories in a week? As Yogi Berra would say, it’s 2003 all over again. But this time with a big difference. It’s almost over. I told you on Monday that Judge David Nuffer with the US District Court in Utah had shot down SCO’s attempts to bring an action for Unfair Competition against IBM because the issue is already covered by another breach of contract claim by SCO. On Tuesday, Judge Nuffer issued a ruling on a pair of interference claims which effectively takes whatever winds were left out of SCO’s sails. Bankrupt SCO, of course, lost their big $1 billion case against IBM long ago when Novell, in a separate case, proved that it, and not SCO, owned the copyrights that SCO was suing over. But SCO’s been struggling to stay alive, hoping to at least win a few bucks from IBM as compensation for all it went through.
  • Linux, IBM Share Bold Vision for Hyperledger Project, a Blockchain Fabric for Business
    No longer a group of thinkers and entrepreneurs on the fringe, the proponents of blockchain technology are growing in number, boosted by new attention from the media, financial institutions, professional services firms and, most recently, major tech giants. The development comes amid reports that the blockchain market could expand to account for more business in the coming years, with Aite Group projecting it could be worth as much as $400m in annual business by 2019. However, how this market takes shape, and which technology providers start to generate actual revenue, is less clear given the variety of new projects arising – from consortiums composed of financial institutions to open-source collaborations. What's more, each of these groups boasts a who’s-who list of well-known backers.
