We're talking 'bout blockage, blockage... Eyeo, Eyeo away. Publishers will get a six-month headsup before Google kills intrusive advertising on Chrome, sources close to the ad giant have reportedly said.
In 2016, I launched Open Innovation Labs, a place where people seeking to leverage the principles of openness can work with a seasoned team to build innovative software that solves their most pressing business problems. It has been an exciting and daunting undertaking. Today, Open Innovation Labs imparts knowledge and best practices that emerge from the world's most successful open source projects, and we provide a residency-style experience that immerses teams in those practices. read more
Do not install build 16212 “A small portion” of Windows mobile users hoping the unexpected cool new update would start the month off the right way got burned yesterday. Microsoft “accidentally” released a development build of Windows 10 that can transform your phone into jelly if you try to install it.…
The next-generation Toyota Camry will be the first car, at least in the US, to feature an infotainment system based on the Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) operating system... “Adopting an open source development approach has enabled us to focus resources on developing innovative new features and bringing them to market faster.”
A low-cost, pocket-sized computer will be released this year that will run Android Marshmallow...
DEFT is a household name when it comes to digital forensics and intelligence activities since its first release way back in 2005. The Linux distribution DEFT is made up of a GNU/Linux and DART(Digital Advanced Response Toolkit), a suite dedicated to digital forensics and intelligence activities. DEFT is touted as a top choice among security and law enforcement agencies for the computer forensic investigations. But what makes DEFT such a capable distro? Let’s take a look.
Aaeon’s “EPIC-KBS7” SBC supports 6th or 7th gen Intel Core CPUs, and offers wide-range power, 2x GBE ports, 4x USB 3.0 ports, and SATA, HDMI, and mini-PCIe. The EPIC-KBS7 is aimed at machine vision applications, among other embedded scenarios. It follows in the footsteps of Aaeon’s more feature-rich, 5th Gen “Broadwell” Core based EPIC-BDU7 and […]
I remember well the days of Linux when the desktop was a challenge to get up and running, keep running, and configure to meet your daily needs. It was a tinkerer’s dream come true but also sent many users back to a path more travelled. For those of us who stuck it out, the reward was considerable: Stability, security, and the bragging rights that we’d achieved something others had not.
The open-source KDE Plasma desktop was updated to version 5.10 on May 30, providing users with a refined user interface and new capabilities. KDE has long taken a different view on how a desktop should work and look, but with the 5.10 update, Plasma now enables users to have a familiar 'folder view' of the desktop, where icons for files and folders (instead of just function widgets) can be placed. Other enhancements include improved search functionality with Krunner, that displays both local as well as web search results.
We recently interviewed Riley Brandt on how he uses Fedora. This is part of a series on the Fedora Magazine. Riley Brandt uses a Mac running OS X and Adobe for work at a university in western Canada. “The job can be really amazing at times. I’ve watched a doctor perform brain surgery using a robotic arm, been in a lab used for quantum teleportation, met Olympic athletes, and taken photos from a helicopter.” However, for his personal photography work he uses Fedora and FOSS software to process and organize his photographs.
We need more female role models in tech. We need to hear your experiences, your lessons, your failures and your successes. We need to hear them because you can never be sure who you’ll influence and whose life you’ll change.
Ask people who run IT departments these days what keeps them up at night, and they'll probably tell you it's security—or the lack of it. With the explosive growth of malicious attacks on everything from hospitals to Fortune 500s, security—not hardware, software and even staff—is what currently makes life miserable.
Mistral’s “RZ/G1E SMARC” module runs Yocto Linux on the 1GHz, dual -A7 Renesas RZ-G1E SoC with 4GB eMMC, Fast and Gigabit Ethernet, and an optional dev kit. Mistral’s RZ/G1E SMARC module follows iWave’s iW-RainboW-G20M-Qseven in tapping the Renesas RZ/G1 SoC, but in this case it’s the 1GHz, dual-core Cortex-A7 RZ/G1E instead of the 1.5GHz dual Cortex-A15 RZG1M and RZ/G1N.
For any Xfce gurus who may have tried to emulate the Unity desktop look, or maybe just wanted to save a bit of screen real estate, this may not be new to you. For anyone else though, here's a tip on this neat functionality.
Three letters guide the way I work: GSD—get stuff done. Over the years, I'm managed to blend concepts like feedback loops (from lean methodologies) and iterative improvement (from Agile) into my everyday work habits so I can better GSD (if I can use that as a verb). This means being extremely efficient with my time: outlining clear, discrete goals; checking completed items off a master list; and advancing projects forward iteratively and constantly. But can someone still GSD while defaulting to open? Or is this when getting stuff done comes to a grinding halt? read more

Murata’s “Aquila 6UL” is a 40 x 40mm COM with WiFi, Bluetooth, and 4GB eMMC, that runs Android Things or Linux on an NXP i.MX6 UL. Electronics component vendor Murata has introduced the Aquila 6UL, which appears to be its first computer-on-module. It’s also one of the first boards we’ve seen aside from Wandboard.org’s similarly […]
