Nina Reiser's Mother, Defense Attorney Verbally Sparring

Filed under
Reiser

The trial of People v. Hans Reiser picked up here Thursday where it left off the day before: The murder defendant's attorney was sparring with the mother of the defendant's missing wife.

"Would you like me today to repeat my responses for a third time?" testified witness Irina Sharanova, the mother of Nina Reiser, who the defendant is accused of killing.
"I don't know what you're putting into this question?" Sharanova at one time replied to defense attorney William DuBois.

Sharanova, 59, was flown here by prosecutors from Russia, where she lives and where she reared Nina Reiser. Her daughter vanished Sept. 3, 2006, when she dropped off her and Hans' two young children to the Oakland hills house where the popular Linux programmer lived.

World’s smallest i.MX6 module has onboard WiFi, eMMC

Variscite unveiled a 50 x 20mm “DART-MX6″ module that runs Linux or Android on the Freescale i.MX6, with up to 64GB eMMC flash and -40 to 85°C support. Variscite’s claim that the 50 x 20mm DART-MX6 is the world’s smallest computer-on-module based on Freescale’s i.MX6 system-on-chip appears to be a valid one. It beats the smallest ones we’ve seen to date: TechNexion’s 40 x 36mm PICO-IMX6, and Solid-Run’s 47 x 30mm microSOM i4. It’s also just a hair larger than Variscite’s own 52 x 17mm DART-4460, which is based on a dual-core TI OMAP4460 SoC, and Gumstix’s slightly larger 58 x 17mm Overo modules, which use TI Sitara AM37xx SoCs.

BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition review

The BQ Aquaris e4.5 Ubuntu Edition is not the debut Canonical must have envisaged for Ubuntu Phone, in the early days of the platform’s development. It’s a perfectly functional smartphone for the most part, and we like the concept of scopes, but the hardware is humdrum, performance is sluggish, and the software running on it is rough and ready, and full of holes. We’ll be tracking the progress of Ubuntu Phone with interest – it surely must get better than this – but this first device is one to write off to experience. Read more
