Government Accountability Office Study Confirms: Patent Office Encouraged Examiners To Approve Cr@ppy Patents

This shouldn't be a surprise. All the way back in 2004, in Adam Jaffe's and Josh Lerner's excellent book about our dysfunctional patent system, Innovation and Its Discontents, one of the key problems they outlined with the system was the fact that there was strong incentives for patent examiners at the US Patent Office to approve shit patents. That's because they were rewarded for how "productive" they were in terms of how many patent applications they completed processing.

7 reasons to love Vim

  • Groups: Linux; Story Type: News Story
When I started using the vi text editor, I hated it. I thought it was the most painful and counter-intuitive editor ever designed. But I'd decided I had to learn the thing, because if you're using Unix, vi was everywhere and was the only editor you were guaranteed to have access to. That was back in 1998, but it remains true today—vi is available, usually as part of the base install, on almost every Linux distribution in existence. read more

UK copyright extension on designed objects is “direct assault” on 3D printing

A recent extension of UK copyright for industrially manufactured artistic works represents "a direct assault on the 3D printing revolution," says Pirate Party founder Rick Falkvinge. The UK government last month extended copyright for designs from 25 years to the life of the designer plus 70 years. In practice, this is likely to mean a copyright term of over 100 years for furniture and other designed objects. "This change means that people will be prohibited from using 3D printing and other maker technologies to manufacture such objects, and that for a full century."

Hackers Fool Tesla S's Autopilot to Hide and Spoof Obstacles

In May, when a Tesla S in autopilot mode failed to detect a white tractor-trailer turning into its path and careened into the rig's side at 74 miles per hour, killing the car's driver, the question of the reliability of autonomous vehicles came into focus like never before.

Apricity OS 07.2016 Screenshot Tour

The Apricity OS team is incredibly happy to announce the release of Apricity OS 07.2016 'Aspen', the first-ever stable release of Apricity OS. Apricity OS 07.2016 Dev, another monthly development snapshot, is also released. Many changes have been implemented since the last release, most notable of which is certainly Apricity Freezedry, a system configuration tool that has been integrated into the development build system for Apricity OS. With a simple TOML configuration file, many aspects of a system may be configured, including GNOME and Cinnamon themes and settings, installed packages, enabled systemd services, and enabled Vim plugins (installed through Pathogen). Freezedry is built with modules, each in charge of controlling a specific aspect of a user's system. Other changes to the OS include LUKS encryption support.

Now it has been approximately a month since I'm using Linux Mint 18 "Sarah". There is not doubt this distro is solid and newbie friendly. I always suggest Linux newbies start with Linux Mint as it makes easier for them to move around and learn Linux system. Sarah takes the same legacy forward with better look and user experience.

Snapchat, for Hoarders

I like Snapchat, but if I'm being totally honest, it's not something I use every day. I like it because my kids send me goofy pictures and videos, and it makes me happy that they think to include me in their Snapchatty world.
