Spread the word that MS Skype isn't your only option.  I hesitate, as the article points out, to call it an "Alternative".  Many applications on Linux these days are more then adequate for getting your work done in a "non-corporate" way.  Support open source.
 
Ring is a full-featured, open source video and chat system that you need to know about; Paul Brown has details.
I'm fed up with the word "alternative." There, I said it. When you use alternative to refer to an open source application, you are sure to get on my wick. "Linux is an alternative to Windows," "GIMP is an alternative to Photoshop," "LibreOffice is an alternative to Microsoft Office," and so on. The word “alternative” gives a subtle connotation of inferiority to the thing it’s describing. It suggests it’s what we have to make do with, because for ...

Ok, you just gotta clap for the sheer genius of this!! lol
 
Time to up your Pokémon catching skills. This DIY iPhone case is simple and brilliant. It will help even the suckiest poke ball throwers catch a Pokémon while playing Pokémon GO. It was designed by Jon Cleaver and the idea is that it helps you make consistent Pokéball throws in the mobile game.

#iPhone snitch @Snowden @bunniestudios @MIT…and the @eff taking on DMCA Section 1201
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/07/21/iphone-snitch-snowden-bunniestudios-mit-and-the-eff-taking-on-dmca-section-1201/

Front-line journalists are high-value targets, and their enemies will spare no expense to silence them. Unfortunately, journalists can be betrayed by their own tools. Their smartphones are also the perfect tracking device. Because of the precedent set by the US’s “third-party doctrine,” which holds that metadata on such signals enjoys no meaningful legal protection, governments and powerful political institutions are gaining access to comprehensive records of phone emissions unwittingly broadcast by device owners. This leaves journalists, activists, and rights workers in a position of vulnerability. This work aims to give journalists the tools to know when their smart phones are tracking or disclosing their location when the devices are supposed to be in airplane mode. We propose to accomplish this via direct introspection of signals controlling the phone’s radio hardware. The introspection engine will be an open source, user-inspectable and field-verifiable module attached to an existing smart phone that makes no assumptions about the trustability of the phone’s operating system.

And so it begins...
 
Between the network connection, GPS, and camera, Pokémon GO will really drain your phone's battery, which makes catching Pokémon even harder. You should pick up a portable charger or battery case for your device if you plan on playing for very long.
