TuxMachines: Linux-enabled smart fridge invites cool accessory designs

Saturday 10th of January 2015 12:20:08 AM

GE and FirstBuild announced a “ChillHub” fridge with Linux-based WiFi and USB connectivity, and an SDK for community-designed, 3D-printable accessories.

We’ve seen some high-tech refrigerators and washing machines over the years including a Tizen-based Samsung fridge that did not seem to make the trip to CES this year. As with Dacor’s Android-based Discovery iQ oven shown this week at CES, the high-tech functionality typically centers around touchscreen interfaces that make it easier to master the advanced settings found on the latest consumer electronics.

Reddit: How did you end up using Linux?

Saturday 10th of January 2015 12:19:52 AM

I first got into Ubuntu and Linux and shit around version 7.04. When I found out you could get free CD's of it, of course I ordered a couple of Ubuntu and a couple of Kubuntu. I played around with it for a while and got pretty good at all the terminal commands, working around bugs and shit, and I was totally convinced that 2006(7?) would be the year of the Linux desktop. I thought that Windows was inferior in every way except application support and that once the inevitable flood of users migrated to Ubuntu or other Linux OS's, application support would soon follow. I was like 14 and didn't even know what 4chan was. It was also around this time I started experimenting with anal stimulation. Used CO2 canisters, toothbrush handles, even my finger in a latex glove. Then after about a month I realized how much of a fucking faggot I was becoming, reinstalled Windows, threw away those shitty discs, and haven't stuck anything up my ass since. So I'm not surprised when I see Battlestation threads with Linux machines and massive dildos in the background. Linux does really turn you into a massive faggot.

Saturday 10th of January 2015 12:05:25 AM

the thing is i want to have a browser which connect to a socks5 proxy with authentication needed and maxthon supports that but it cant open the system proxy settings

TuxMachines: Will Open Source Security Be on the Federal Agenda in 2015?

Friday 9th of January 2015 11:26:35 PM

TuxMachines: Linux’s Creator Wants Us All to Chill Out About the Leap Second

Friday 9th of January 2015 11:19:53 PM

The leap second is the rare and obscure practice of occasionally adding a second to the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) system that most of us use to set our watches. It’s necessary, but not exactly computer friendly. In 2012 it crashed websites such as Reddit and Yelp and snarled up airline departures in Australia, so you’d think most computer experts would really hate them. After all, we have perfectly accurate timekeeping systems, such as the one used by GPS, that don’t futz with leap seconds.

LXer: Under-served languages get a boost with Openwords

Friday 9th of January 2015 09:47:44 PM
Openwords mines massive, preexisting public data resources (like Wiktionary or Apertium) to rapidly provide language learning mobile software for the world[he]#039[/he]s population, particularly for under-served languages. Over half of the world[he]#039[/he]s people do not have a language learning app suited for their language or needs. We[he]#039[/he]re talking about billions of people around the world that speak a language with less than 100 million native speakers. Most of these languages are overlooked by mobile app developers, but Openwords is a startup that aims to address this problem.

TuxMachines: Heads up, dear leader: Security hole found in North Korea’s home-grown OS

Friday 9th of January 2015 09:08:40 PM

North Korea is a technological island in many ways. Almost all of the country's "Internet" is run as a private network, with all connections to the greater global Internet through a collection of proxies. And the majority of the people of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea who have access to that network rely on the country's official operating system: a Linux variant called Red Star OS.

Red Star OS, first introduced in 2003, was originally derived from Red Hat Linux. In theory, it gave North Korea an improved level of security against outside attack—a Security Enhanced Linux operating system based on Red Hat that could enforce strict government access controls on the few who got to use it.

Reddit: Linux Plumbers 2014 conference, are there videos of it freely available?

Friday 9th of January 2015 08:59:24 PM

I was trying to find some videos of talks given at this conference but there is nothing on google. There is a fine selection from Plumbers 2013, but nothing on 2014.

Given it was a high profile event with big corporate sponsors, it should have some video record somewhere.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

7 reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 "Utopic Unicorn"
