If SMBs aren't in the cloud today, what are they waiting for?

  • intronis blog; By Ron Miller (Posted by rsmiller on Aug 14, 2014 6:32 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Cloud

Linux-driven service robot wants to deliver your towels

A startup called Savioke has unveiled a Linux- and ROS-based SaviOne hospitality robot, currently being tested at a California hotel for room service duty. Savioke’s “SaviOne” stands three feet tall, weighs less than 100 pounds, and can roll along at a typical human walking pace of 4 mph. The touchscreen-equipped robot lacks arms or legs, but can operate a smart elevator on its own via a wireless signal. The so-called “Botlr” can also carry up to two cubic feet of material, which is perfect for its job description: delivering towels, phone chargers, snacks, and other items to hotel guests. The SaviOne has just started a pilot program under the name “A.L.O.” with the Aloft Hotel in Cupertino, Calif., a member of the Starwood Hotels and Resorts family.

Reiser4 Now Availabel for the 3.15 kernel, so what?

A recent announcement was made stating that the Reiser4 file system, successor to the ReiserFS, was ported to the 3.15 Linux kernel. So, I ask you, how relevant is Reiser4? If you ask me, not very. I feel that this file system (among a few others) just needs to go away.

  • Story Type: News Story
The federal government is the single largest purchaser of code in the world. So why is this code—taxpayer-funded and integral to the day-to-day working of our democracy—so often hidden from public view? There are two sides to answering that question: Why does the government so often build on closed platforms, and once built, why isn't the code released to the public? read more

Windows and Linux communities used to virtually battle each other regarding the superiority of one platform or the other, but that is no longer happening, at least not at the same scale. One of the reasons for that might be that Linux is actually gaining ground.

Cracking Wifi WPA/WPA2 passwords using pyrit cowpatty in Kali Linux

Oxford Dictionary got 171,476 words. I'm #cracking my #Wifi #WPA2 password at 159159186.00 PMK's per second. Need I say more? There are just too many guides on Cracking Wifi WPA/WPA2 passwords using different methods. Everyone has their own take on it. Personally, I think there’s no right or wrong way of cracking a Wireless Access Point. Following way is my way and I found it extremely efficient and fast during my tests for Cracking Wifi WPA/WPA2 passwords using pyrit cowpatty in Kali Linux where I attacked with Dictionary using either cuda or calpp (cal++) and at the same time I used WiFite to fast track a few things. This whole process was used in Kali Linux and it took me less than 10 minutes to crack a Wifi WPA/WPA2 password using pyrit cowpatty WiFite combination using my laptop running a AMD ATI 7500HD Graphics card.
