The basic idea behind Blue Spike's patents is creating a digital fingerprint (which the patents refer to as an "abstract") of a file that allows it to be compared to other files (e.g. comparing audio files to see if they are the same song). In very general terms, the patents describe creating a "reference generator," an "object locator," a "feature selector," a "comparing device," and a "recorder." You will be amazed to learn that these five elements "may be implemented with software." That task, however, is left for the reader.Even worse, Blue Spike has refused to define the key term in its patents...https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20140930/15464228683/serial-litigant-blue-spike-wins-effs-stupid-patent-month-september.shtml

Variscite has refreshed its Linux- and Android-ready, Freescale i.MX6 based VAR-SOM-MX6 module, adding WiFi, Bluetooth, and up to 64GB of eMMC. The original VAR-SOM-MX6 computer-on-module arrived before LinuxGizmos launched in early 2013. Now Variscite has delivered an update that adds a WiFi and Bluetooth module, and adds up to 64GB of eMMC flash. Otherwise, the module appears to be the same, but since it’s new to us, we’ll give it the full treatment here.

Put your testing hats on, Plasma 5 has a beta release. The second version of Plasma 5 is due out in under two weeks and now is your chance to test it for bugs which have crept in. It features a bunch of missing features which have been added back such as the much requested icon only task bar. The Visual Design Group have been hard at work over the last three months adding a Qt 4 Breeze theme to make all KDE applications fit into the desktop and many new icons as part of the Breeze icon theme. Check for packages for your distro and try it out.
