Ubuntu Edge Smartphone Raises Millions, Falls Short | NewsFactor Business

Ubuntu Edge Smartphone Raises Millions, Falls Short | NewsFactor Business | Tech | Scoop.it
The good news for Canonical is that it raised nearly $13 million on crowdfunding site Indiegogo to build its new Ubuntu Edge smartphone, which doubles as a desktop computer. The bad news is that it needed $32 million.
Mateusz Sójka's insight:

Although I didn't donate any money to the funding initiative, I was really amazed by this idea. I think that even though Canonical said they wouldn't do it if they didn't achieve their goal, it was an important market check and people are now aware of the possibility of getting one device to rule them all.

 

I think that this is the way devices should be going and who knows if other companies (Apple, Google) have taken note. We will see.

Sales of Orwell's '1984' spike after NSA leak | Tech | Scoop.it
Copies of 1984 are flying off the shelves following the exposure of electronic surveillance programs by a National Security Agency contractor.
Mateusz Sójka's insight:

After I finished reading the book, I was terrified by realizing how similar Orwell's world was to the real one. This was 7 years ago. Today, I realize that the world has become really close to the story in 1984...

The NSA has cracked the secure internet: 3 things to know about the latest Snowden leaks | GigaOM Tech News | Tech | Scoop.it

In the latest development in the ongoing scandal over U.S. surveillance practices, new reports show that the National Security Agency can break into a wide range of encrypted internet communications that have long been considered secure.

 

The revelations come from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who obtained a trough of highly-classifed information and has been slowly leaking it to the Guardian and the New York Times. The news outlets, along with Pro Publica, set out the new facts on Thursday in long articles that include slides and technical details.
