The nation’s mobile phone carriers received more than 9,000 requests last year for cell-tower dumps, which identify every mobile phone at a particular location and time, often by the thousands. The revelation, revealed in a congressional inquiry, underscores that domestic authorities, from the FBI to the local police, are performing a massive amount of surveillance on Americans on domestic soil, sometimes without probable-cause warrants.
This marks an exciting milestone for Red Hat as we share news of the beta availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Since its introduction more than a decade ago, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become the world's leading enterprise Linux platform, and it has helped set industry standards for performance, capacity, capability and security. Today, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a leading force in enterprise datacenters; it spans nearly every industry and has advanced to deliver the original cloud operating system, powering many of the world's largest clouds.
Lantronix announced an IPv6 certified version of its tiny, RJ45-sized embedded Linux networking server called the XPort Pro Lx6 aimed at IoT applications. Lantronix’s Xport Pro has long been a favorite of embedded engineers looking for a low-cost networking server that doesn’t consume much space or power. The new XPort Pro Lx6 is almost physically […]

A comprehensive performance comparison is underway at Phoronix that pits SteamOS against other desktop Linux distributions, but for those anxious to see some performance numbers, here are benchmarks done so far this weekend from seven NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards on the public SteamOS 1.0 Beta operating system. In this article are early benchmarks from seven NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards running Valve's Debian Linux based SteamOS on an Intel Haswell system.
As it announced earlier this week, Valve shipped its 300 Steam Machine prototypes to its randomly selected beta testers late today. That announcement was accompanied by the first public release of SteamOS, the currently-in-beta Linux-based operating system that will power Valve's new gaming-PCs-turned-consoles.
Valve had previously recommended that users who aren't "intrepid Linux hackers" should wait a few more months before trying out SteamOS, but that's not going to stop Ars from barreling head first into the midst of things! We downloaded the OS as quickly as we could after it went live and spent some time getting it whipped into shape on fresh hardware. Contrary to Valve's warning, the install wasn't complex or scary at all—though if you've never installed Linux before, it might take you a bit out of your comfort zone.
Google recently released and took back one of the biggest privacy features for Android since its launch. And we’re a little bummed. Yesterday, the Electronic Frontier Foundation wrote about a new and extremely important privacy tool in Android. Today, it realized the tool had actually been removed in an update to the mobile operating system earlier this week. After chatting with Google, the privacy advocacy group isn’t satisfied with why it was pulled.
As an “early, first-look” release, instead of an ISO installation image, you get either a 960 MB or a 2.4 GB zip file that you can use to build your own Steam Machine. Whether you are an experienced user or not, the instructions for building a DIY (do-it-yourself) Steam Machine are easy to follow.
OpenStack is probably the largest and fastest growing opensource project out there. Unfortunately, that means fast changes, new features and different install methods. RedHat's RDO simplifies this.
For those curious about the performance of Intel's Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors when upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10 and the experimental Linux 3.13 along with the latest stable GCC 4.8.2 compiler, here's some fresh benchmarks from several different Intel Core i3 and Core i5 CPUs.

I was extremely pleased to be introduced to Jack the (DVD) Ripper, a 3d printed, Raspberry Pi-powered device that pulls a DVD from a stack, drops it into a drive, and, when the drive opens after ripping is finished, picks it up again and puts it in another pile.

iWave tipped a Linux-ready Qseven module called the iW-RainboW-G17M-Q7, using Altera’s Cortex-A9/FPGA Cyclone V SX SoC and offering HSMC and PCIe expansion. Altera’s 28nm Cyclone V system-on-chip (SoC) has been out a year now and has appeared in an SODIMM-style Critical Link MityARM-5CSX COM and the Sockit Development Kit single board computer from Terasic.
