  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Fedora
A Fedora laptop is perfect for your everyday tasks, such as Web browsing or listening to media.

If you have nicer computer speakers, chances are you have them hooked to a desktop or other non-portable computer.

New story! Open Food Network connects you with local, sustainable food

Open Food Network is a food hub, a connector between small farmers and places to sell their local, sustainable food. Find them on GitHub. Interest in sustainable, local food has grown by leaps and bounds in the past decade. Consumers think more and more about what they are eating and they want food that is sustainably produced, healthy, and safe. Local and organic food purchases hardly missed a beat through the recession. Big companies even started putting the word “natural” on their products hoping to ride the trend. Cynical marketing aside, sustainable, local food is important for a variety of reasons. Larger farms’ grain and livestock production has led to the development of a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico the size of Indiana. Processed food with added sugar contributes to record levels of obesity and preventable disease. So-called "super weeds" are springing up, immune to broadly applied Roundup and other herbicides.

New story! As Expected: Trial Lawyers Made A Huge Miscalculation In Killing Recent Patent Reform

Back in May, we wrote about how, despite pretty much everyone agreeing on a (decent, if not amazing) patent reform bill in the Senate, the whole thing got shot down at the last minute. That was when the trial lawyers called Senator Harry Reid, asking him to kill the whole thing, which he did by telling Senator Patrick Leahy that he wouldn't allow the bill to go to the floor for a vote. This came after months of detailed negotiations, getting nearly everyone into agreement on the bill, which would have made life at least somewhat more difficult for patent trolls.
