Reddit: Ubqiuti Networks still violating the GPL

Wednesday 9th of September 2015 07:05:38 PM

Update in case anyone is interested on

I was applying for a job at this company when I learned about this. They claimed the issue was fixed but request for source to specific binaries went unmet despite efforts made to create an appearance of compliance. Hopefully this is useful to someone searching for updates.

LXer: Google Fiber: Making the Competition Better

Tuesday 8th of September 2015 12:40:18 PM
The bean counters at Time Warner and Comcast lost their friggin’ minds, not just in Kansas City but in Austin as well. Time Warner began rolling out plans that automatically doubled a residential customer’s speeds, with absolutely no cost to the consumer. Not only was Time Warner promising this in Austin, even little Podunk towns like Taylor, fifty miles away, were getting the deal.

Reddit: Has there been a time when the Linux Kernel Maintainers *had* to break User Space?

Monday 7th of September 2015 12:31:03 PM

Or.. technically break something IN User Space.
Someone recently posted about Linus' rant at a Kernel Maintainer for introducing a patch that would really break things (as well as being bad code).
It made me wonder if there have been times when the existing code had been determined to be bad and the fix would ultimately break other existing programs, but still had to be done.

Reddit: Purism pledged 90K to their own librem 13 campaign

Monday 7th of September 2015 12:08:40 PM

Look at this: Then look at the live link:

There are only 4 extra people on the live version, at the time of writing. They are, according to those pages: Caroline T, Lawrence D, Morgan H and Todd W

3 of them pledged after the 90K surge. The first one before that is Todd Weaver, the CEO of Purism.


Surely, this violates the principles of a crowd funding campaign? The Purism CEO is cheating by pledging so much to his own campaign, surely?

Surely, this is unfair to other crowd funding campaigns?

Huawei Watch Review: Best Android Wear Smartwatch Available

The Huawei Watch currently offers the best option on the Android Wear platform. The Huawei Watch looks elegant and offers great design as well as multiple attractive style options depending on the buyer’s cash flow. Even iPhone owners can take a look. If an iPhone owner prefers a stainless steel round watch, then the Huawei Watch is a usable option at a lower price than the Stainless Steel Apple Watch. Android Wear works well on iPhone, but does not give users the same level of integration. The most important features work fine, including notifications and fitness tracking. We give the Huawei Watch a hearty recommendation. It is worth paying a little more for this attractive and well-designed Android Wear smartwatch. Read more
