Apple Wants To Stop You Fixing Your iPhone And iPad: Source Says It Will Testify Against 'Right To Repair' Legislation

Internationaal Linux nieuws - 18 februari, 2017 - 16:26
Even though the idea seems a no-brainer -- you bought it, why shouldn't you be able to repair it? -- progress has been extremely slow, as successive Techdirt articles have chronicled. One of the most important developments is a number of "Right to Repair" bills that are being considered by various state legislatures. These typically require electronics manufacturers to make service manuals available to the public, and to sell repair parts. The hope is that if even one or two of these are passed, manufacturers will find it simpler to comply nationally. However, an article on Motherboard suggests that the "Right to Repair" movement has a rather surprising enemy.

Organizing your music: Tagging as you rip

Internationaal Linux nieuws - 18 februari, 2017 - 14:32
I think that I've always hated filing and organizing stuff. Equally, I always hate it when I can't find something because I haven't filed or organized it well. When it comes to enjoying my music, these two contradicting tendencies tend to show up when I try a new music player that can't figure out how my cover art is stored, can't find the correct cover image online because the album is unusual, or the version I have isn't correctly named.read more

Apple Will Fight 'Right to Repair' Legislation

Internationaal Linux nieuws - 18 februari, 2017 - 05:00

Last year, a bill headed through the New York statehouse was killed in part due to lobbying from Apple and IBM, among other manufacturers. But nationwide, the legislation appears to have much more momentum this year as more states introduce right to repair bills. Last month, the American Farm Bureau Federation, an influential political organization representing farmers, officially endorsed right to repair legislation.

Another distro. Yeah, I know. I am getting tired too of all these distros popping out of everywhere. But I am still interested in trying them out. Each and every distro has a different reason for its existence. Today, we will look at Linux lite 3.2. This is neither a distro aiming to be a lightweight distro nor a distro trying to unleash the power of Linux with all apps preloaded. Instead, It tries to strike that perfect balance between them. Now, almost all of the distros aim to do that then, what is so special about this distro which makes it unique. Well, let me introduce to the distro first and I think why it achieved so much more than other distros becomes clear after that.
