"A federal appeals court actually proposed that in some alternate universe, Android launched and told developers to write apps in a language they’d never encountered before."

The Linux Foundation is at it again! I noticed this a bit earlier but /. just picked it up today, the Linux Foundation has gone and dropped community representation on its board, possibly in response to Karen Sandler (executive director of the Software Freedom Conservancy, former executive director of the GNOME Foundation) intending on running for a board position.
The Linux Foundation is an industry organisation dedicated to promoting, protecting and standardising Linux and open source software [1]. The majority of its board is chosen by the member companies - 10 by platinum members (platinum membership costs $500000 a year), 3 by gold members (gold ...

Bradley Kuhn's analysis of Google's move to a GPL-ish JDK base for Android. In a nutshell, it's not a big change legally (the Classpath exception makes the license barely copyleft at all), and overall he figures it was done more for technical than legal reasons. Personally I think the Oracle-v-Google lawsuits had more to do with it than he figures, but the rest of his analysis is interesting regardless.

You know, I find USB type-C actually a tad more hassle to get in right, if only because I have the habit so ingrained with micro-B of feeling the end while I bring it towards my phone. So with micro-B at this point it'll all one fluid motion, driven by muscle memory and subconscious pattern matching---I never get it wrong the first time. But with type-C, that exact same subconscious subroutine gets tripped up by the smoothness of both edges and thinks it's doing something wrong, so I pause for a second every time before I plug it in!

Anyone else who's been firmly on the micro-B side of thing until now having a similar silly problem?

+Mark Finlay At least here in Canada, the shipping cost on the OnePlus cables is as large as the cables themselves :/ so the more-generic-looking Google Store ones are significantly cheaper in total.

"The economic choice this country poses to young people about higher education has stopped being about opportunity for wealth—now it’s about fear of poverty. Empirically, the latter is a more effective motivator. Whether or not this is an appropriate way to produce educated workers is, in theory, a question for our democracy."
It's not a bubble if it will never pop.

Antioxidants protect healthy cells...and also protect cancer cells. As always, there's no magic bullet.
Research shows antioxidants protect cancer cells from free radicals, too.

From an interview with Ivana Trump:

Ivana’s reps called The Post two days after the interview to clarify that Donald was a feminist. Then they called to say he wasn’t. An hour later, they said he was.

The removal of the launcher itself is no big deal, but will there no longer be .desktop files created in ~/.local/share/applications/ for each Chrome app? That'd be quite inconvenient if so.

+Ben Wells​ Good to hear. The blog post says that people "prefer to launch their apps from within Chrome" and that "Chrome apps can still be accessed by clicking the apps shortcut in the bookmarks bar or typing chrome://apps in the omnibox" and makes no mention of any other desktop integration or methods of launching Chrome apps, so I think you can understand the genesis of my worry!

Anyone else got the new G+ redesign on the web? Looks like they aren't killing off this product anytime soon despite the intermittent doomsaying ;)

Good food, but perhaps not for the price. Waiter was helpful, but a bit disingenuously so. Nice atmosphere, but closed awkwardly early for a french-style restaurant.

Suffers from a strange and offputting lack of any definite article.
