Open source embroidery creates a niche stitch with the EmbroiderModder

There is exactly one Windows machine left in my house. I feel like I barely even know how to use it anymore, with the exception of its dedicated purpose: it runs my embroidery machine. And you only think whatever the latest video game you tried to crack was proprietary, locked-up madness. It takes two USB dongles in the computer that runs the embroidery machine—one for the software that drives the machine and one for the design software. You know that means it costs a small fortune. Thus, I've regularly looked for the latter (I'm not holding out any hope for the former), but had no luck until Embroidermodder 2 launched its Kickstarter campaign.

History Repeats Itself: Patent Abusers Successfully Stymie Anti-Patent Troll Bill In The Senate

Back in December, we noted that the House Judiciary Committee had approved an unfortunately watered-down, anti-patent troll bill. It was better than nothing, but we hoped that the Senate would approve a much stronger version. For a while it seemed like that was likely to happen, but... those who abuse patents are pretty damn powerful. Even those who have been hit by patent trolls in the past, like Apple and Microsoft, have decided to join forces in lobbying against meaningful patent reform. They've been pushing to water down the Senate's bill, taking out nearly everything that would make the bill useful -- and it appears that they're succeeding.
