sunr2007 Re:What it has to do with privacy? (150 comments)

one of Facebook's motive is to confuse users as much it can with respect to privacy. Timeline is doing that. for e.g., if u enable timeline any person on FB can see where u are born , what u did in which year n all type of activities. It helps advertisers whom FB is selling your information.

sunr2007 security circus (47 comments)

The round 1 of security circus has begun. how many times we av been told that a single tool will detect the vulnerabilities and hidden bugs? and then some one exposes the tool or a vulnerability which is not discovered by the tool.then a new tool will emerge and the cycle repeats. "Given enough eyes all bugs are shallow "

Nokia Preps Linux OS For Low-End Smartphones

sunr2007 Linux Rocks! (199 comments)

This is another proof that no Mainstream company can ever ignore linux in the long run. the beauty of linux is such that it scales to sub $100 smartphone and HPC . I bet any OS this planet can do that. sure there are patent problems sorrounding it but thats not going to stop companies from adopting. Nokia should have a plan B if they dont get hit with windows smartphone otherwise they are doomed forever. they know this . thats the reason they are doing this . Nokia backed of Meego and announced symbain wil wont that long but u should have a alternative for tat plan. and this is that alternative . unless MS mole stephen elop tries to do something nasty with windows smartphone i think Nokia wil be a hit with this model. ALL the best Nokia. lets wait for a great sub $100 phone.

How Google Drove Samsung Away

sunr2007 FUCK you MS (231 comments)

If microsoft says that every android device violates their patents then its nothing but just a Extortion racket they are building up by threatening other vendors. Im glad that a company like B & N has balls where as HTC and samsung c not. I'm never buying any windows product ever in my life again. lets start boycotting all MS products. OTOH why Department of Justice/antitrust regularities cannot look into deals like this?

Facebook Says That Google+ Has No Users

sunr2007 biggest selling point of google+ for linux users (360 comments)

is that lot of informative discussions(LKML type) are happening there since most of the kernel developers are using it. A average linux user who cant track LKML can easily see some of the most informative discussions which cannot be found on facebook or twitter.

Linux Kernel 3.1 RC4 has been Released

sunr2007 sunr2007 writes  |  about 3 years ago

sunr2007 (2309530) writes ""I don't know what to say about this one. -rc3 had fewer new commits
than -rc4 does, and I don't like that trend. I'm not happy about the
size of some of the changes (iscsi target, some other random drivers),
but at the same time I have to say that absolutely nothing here makes
me feel worried. Most of the changes are *really* trivial, and the
ones that are a bit bigger tend to be to pretty esoteric areas. For
example, sparc shows up in the dirstat as one of the bigger changes,
and that's just because there's a biggish signal handling change to
fix a rather obscure test. But for the life of me I can't really get
worried about it."

Cyanogen Hired by Samsung

sunr2007 sunr2007 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

sunr2007 writes ""Hardware company Samsung today has been revealed to have acquired one of the single most notorious names in Android modification, that being Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen” of CyanogenMod 7. For those whose life in the after-hours of their day is hacking and pushing their Android devices to the limits, this news has the potential to be much bigger than Google’s early morning acquisition of Motorola. How exactly this will affect how Samsung will operate is not yet known – the next most important question, about what’s going to happen to CyanogenMod now that Cyanogen himself is working for Samsung""
