Why updating Android without vendor help is a nightmare

Filed under
Android
Interviews

The operating system runs on billions of smartphones and tablets, made by all sorts of companies. It primarily targets the ARM platform. A count can only be kept when a device is activated and many users choose not to do so.

Android is based on the Linux kernel which is released under the GNU General Public Licence version 2 and is free software; modifications can be made but if the modified binary kernel is distributed then the source needs to be made available too. All other components are released under the Apache licence, which means that there is no obligation to divulge any changes; in short, these can be locked away.

Interviews

Jim Whitehurst, president and CEO of Raleigh, North Carolina-based Red Hat, helped turn the open source software solutions business into what Forbes called “one of the world’s most innovative companies,” in 2012, 2014 and 2015. His book The Open Organization: Igniting Passion and Performance was published last year. Whitehurst took over the top job at Red Hat in 2008.

LinuxQuestions.org: Not Your Average Linux Forum

Linux
Interviews

For many of us, our introduction to computing is being placed in front of a machine where the only challenge is figuring out the Windows user experience paradigm. Getting started with Linux, on the other hand, requires a bit more effort, a fair amount of trial and error, and perhaps some colorful language along the way.

Linux was not meant to be open source

Filed under
Linux
Interviews

The Linux community has a lot to shout about. In addition to a seemingly endless choice of distros to suit every taste and need, there's also the highly-prized security. This is helped to a large extent by the open source nature of Linux, but Linus Torvalds has revealed that being open source was not part of the original plan.

Neville Cross: How do you Fedora?

Filed under
Red Hat
Interviews

Neville Cross is a Nicaraguan hotel manager who has a passion for technology. He has an Amateur Radio license, and was doing stuff with packet radio (ax.25 protocol) in 2008. That made him look for help in the local Linux community. As he used Red Hat Linux for a while in 2000, it was natural for him to take a look at Fedora. Instead of getting help, he got involved in the local FOSS community, especially in the Fedora local group. At that moment, others Linux distributions had strong support from the international community, but Fedora did not. So he took on the challenge to close the gap. That is how Cross originally showed up in Fedora landscape many years ago.

Desktop environments, Cinnamon, and GNOME

  • Desktop environments in my computer
    I started my Linux journey with Gnome, as it was the default desktop environment in RHL. I took some time to find out about KDE. I guess I found out accidentally during re-installation. It used to be fun to have a desktop that looks different, behaves differently than the normal. During the earlier years in college while I was trying to find out more about Linux, using KDE marked me as a Linux expert. I was powered with the right syntax of mount command to mount the windows partitions and the xmms-mp3 rpm. I spent most of my time in the terminal.

Linux on Servers

  • Who's cashing in on containers? Look to the cloud
    Docker-style containers are so hot they’ve broken the scale ETR uses to measure CIO intent to purchase enterprise technology, registering “the strongest buying intention score ever recorded in [its] six-year history.” While that data is more than a year old, more recent analyses peg Docker adoption up by a factor of 2.6 in 2016 over 2015, yielding a market worth $762 million in 2016, projected to bloat to $2.7 billion by 2020, according to 451 Research.
  • Serverless Computing Is the Stack Reimagined [Ed: Serverless=you have less control over the computer you use. Cloud=you have no ownership of the computer you use. Serverless Cloud=suicide.]
    In Ho's own words, "Serverless computing is the code execution model that the cloud provider abstracts the complexity of managing individual servers." This basically means the provider worries about the servers. You just run your code on them.
  • Docker 1.13 Prunes Containers, Improves Security
    The Docker 1.13 release introduces multiple new commands including prune and squash, which can help containers to use disk space more efficiently. Docker officially announced its 1.13 release on Jan. 19, with new capabilities to help build, manage and secure containers.

The drug name is Contrave. Using two separate drugs to shed weight can be very effective you can find combinations before the FDA now awaiting approval. When dealing with fat loss and the people that go through it you ought to err to the side of caution and let the FDA do its job and demand some study be done in order that the public understands the side effects and dangers of the medications before we bring them. Keep in mind that drug companies will be in business to generate income and that they would say almost anything to keep people on his or her medications. Researchers found out that participants taking this drug for the year, dropped excess weight within one month and have kept the weight off through the entire 56 weeks from the study. Contrave can be a combination from the drugs naltrexone and bupropion, which seems to reflect a whole new trend of weight-loss drugs that are made up of several active ingredient, which may make them more efficient and safer. Combo-pilling may be the newest fad or also the newest in the future under scrutiny and so it is just more publicly known in recent months, comb-pilling for weight loss has been around since the eighties. The biggest reason that employing a combination of pills is starting to become popular will be the fact that since right now there aren't long term prescription weight loss supplements that have been authorized by the FDA besides orlistat. The truly disturbing part is that doctors are prescribing these combinations of medications even though some of the combinations happen to be rejected or have yet to be authorized by the FDA. Seizures certainly are a side effect with Contrave and mustn't be taken in individuals with seizure disorders. The drug may also raise blood pressure and heartrate, and really should not be used in individuals with a history of cardiac arrest or stroke in the previous six months. Blood pressure and pulse should also be measured before commencing the drug and throughout therapy using the drug. The FDA also warned that Contrave can raise hypertension and heart rate and must not be used in patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure levels, in addition to by you are not heart-related and cerebrovascular (circulation system dysfunction impacting mental performance) disease. Patients using a history of cardiac arrest or stroke in the previous six months, life-threatening arrhythmias, or congestive heart failure were excluded through the clinical trials. Those taking Contrave should have their heart-rate and pulse monitored regularly. In addition, considering that the compound includes bupropion, Contrave comes having a boxed warning to alert health care professionals and patients to the increased probability of suicidal thoughts and behaviors related to antidepressant drugs. The warning also notes that serious neuropsychiatric events are actually reported in patients taking bupropion for quitting smoking. The course of recovery, even for those using the medications, centers more about talk and much less on pills because while drugs like acamprosate and naltrexone help change brain chemistry, they just don't change minds. Once you adopt away the alcohol, sometimes using the successful usage of prescribed medicine, the minds still need work. Alcoholics who slip in recovery and non-alcoholics drink for fundamentally the same reason: It relieves social/physical/emotional tension. With alcoholics however, their own health are programmed differently genetically and react to drinking with more drinking. So counseling or even a 12-step meeting helps those abstinent keep from using the first drink. Recovery has very little to do with stopping the drinking and the ones successful in recovery admit they're success is founded on learning or relearning the way to manage life's tensions.
