From /u/ProGamerGov:

*Tell the FCC what you think of these new rules here:* https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2015/08/06/2015-18402/equipment-authorization-and-electronic-labeling-for-wireless-devices

Anyone from any country can provide comments, they want to hear from individuals outside the United a states as well!


1. Go to the Federal Register and press "Submit a formal comment"
2. Start your comment by respectfully asking the FCC to not implement rules that take away the ability of users to install the software of their choosing on their computing devices.

3. Additional points of emphasis you should consider adding:

* Wireless networking research depends on the ability of researchers to investigate and modify their devices.

* Americans need the ability to fix security holes in their devices when the manufacturer chooses to not do so.

* Users have in the past fixed serious bugs in their wifi drivers, which would be banned under the NPRM.

* Billions of dollars of commerce, such as secure wifi vendors, retail hotspot vendors, depends on the ability of users and companies to install the software of their choosing.

* Mesh networking which helps first responders in emergencies, also helps provide anonymity, creates a backup/alternative communications network, will become more difficult than it needs to be with these new rules.

* Users should be able to manipulate and control all aspects of their devices.

* Manufacures will likely employe digital locks is the easiest manner they can rather than worrying about letting you still use your device fully to the extent of the law. This means you get locked out of other things, cannot check for back doors, etc... It's cheaper to implement a lock that encompasses the entire device rather than trying to individually lock or unlock each little line of code depending on the legalities.

Naughty Google! "It's just frustrating to see Apple enforce a sane and safe policy of encrypt-everything – a strong step in the right direction for privacy and security – and then watch the whole effort be undermined by advertising."
 
"Google has told iOS 9 app developers to disable Apple's enforcement of HTTPS-only connections – or their in-app Google ads won't show up on up-to-date iPhones and iPads." Bad, Google.

Google clearly mentioned in the post recommending this that the measure is only intended for third-party ad servers, not their own. Google's servers encrypt even the ads they serve.

I'm going to touch on a rather controversial community topic. "Activity monitoring"

Notice how I avoided using the word "spying" because that sounds nefarious, and we can all agree that nobody has brought evidence of such intent by Microsoft forward.

We all know Microsoft (and honestly, Google and Apple too) can and do keep indefinite logs of your activity (which you agree to by using their products). This is with the intent of offering you more customized services and market offerings which mean more value for you (i.e. relevant ads) and in turn more profit for them. This is nothing profound.

The worrying part for me is the culture that kids are being born into. The article below concerns me. Not because parents can "spy" on their kids but because kids will grow up thinking it's normal for somebody to be watching over your shoulder throughout life. And more of life will be occurring in the digital realm. These are the people who will be voting on topics like surveillance drones.

Am I naive for painting a dystopian picture of the future?

GNOME System Monitor is missing an icon for its app menu. (Top left corner). This pushes the headerbar down. App menus for other GNOME applications display just fine. Is this a known issue?

Hi guys, can someone please explain to me how to paste text into Writer unformatted?

• The Paste Special menu claims <No selection possible>.
• Ctrl+Shift(+Alt)+V do nothing.
• Ctrl+V pastes formatted text.

I'm copying from Firefox or Chromium. Using LibreOffice 5
