great sleuthing here... as a recent Proofpoint customer I'm starting to notice their name a lot more in the security research field -- kinda like when you buy a certain make/model of car/bike/skateboard and you suddenly start seeing them everywhere. #malware#pointofsale#security
this has a chicken & the egg problem similar to idea that some folks cling to that OS X and iOS will some day merge -- I'll believe it when I see the first release of the Android SDK that runs on Android. #android#chromeos#chromebook
I pre-ordered my controller earlier this month so it should be arriving in a couple of weeks. I haven't tried SteamOS in a while but Big Picture mode on Windows is looking pretty good these days. #steamos#valvesoftware
The OUYA has enough power to run almost every console emulator and play most of the major video games from the last four decades. Our guide should help you to find the right emulator to play all those fabulous games from the Atari to the Nintendo, from the Sega to the C64 and many more.
I applaud Valve Software for their tremendous efforts in improving OpenGL for all platforms, working with video driver devs at the big three chipset companies, and pushing forward Linux gaming in general. But I worry that it's still going to be a niche platform and analyses like this aren't going to help their cause much in the audience most likely to be interested in supporting them in the first place. Taking on several 800 lb gaming giants is quite an admirable feat so I will be watching and participating as much as possible... #vulkan#vulkanapi#opengl#steampowered#valvesoftware#steamos
I saw this great article on OSNews today where someone converted the old IRIX font, Screen, to use in Terminal.app on his modern OS X system. Bit-mapped fonts are ugly, though, and on a modern display & OS will really show their age. So I present here a few free monospace fonts for the rest of you command line warriors out there... I've installed some of them on Linux but should really get them all on my other platforms as well.
The first Unix machines I sat at on a daily basis were the SGI Indys in the Berry Patch. IRIX's proportional system font was Adobe Helvetica Oblique, which was nice; but its monospaced font was unique and home-grown, simply called screen. Here are a couple of screenshots I took in that ...
phew! I hadn't installed this since I had Ubuntu as a desktop... this is my only gripe about running a strict Debian environment; third party apps, drivers, and libraries can sometimes be problematic to install. in the case of Spotify, I had to find a very specific libgcrypt11_1.5.4 package to install first & yes, I tried the Nuvola plug-in first. thankfully, others out are still as devoted to Debian as I am. thanks for such a great distro, everyone! #debian#linux
Apple Inc (AAPL.O) told a U.S. judge that accessing data stored on a locked iPhone would be "impossible" with devices using its latest operating system, but the company has the "technical ability" to help law enforcement unlock older phones.
