Why iPad is iBad for your freedom

iPad isn't a divine revelation, but a golden calfYesterday Steve Jobs may have descended from the mountaintop today with Moses Tablet in hand, but a group of protestors were waiting in the foothills with a simple message: the iPad isn't a divine revelation, but a golden calf.

Members of the Free Software Foundation staged a small protest outside today's Apple event in San Francisco, making the case against Apple's use of DRM. The group's four-foot signs were headed with the message "Entering Apple Restriction Zone" and laid out the tablet's detriments:

    * No free software
    * No installing apps from the Web
    * No sharing music or books
    * We can remotely disable your apps & media

What have been happening at Embedded Linux Conference Grenoble

This is my second day at ELC-E in Grenoble, and the organizers told me that the total number of attendants iis approximately 180 people.
I must say this is the best Linux embedded event I attended ever and I suggest to everybody to come here.
I am planning to be here the next year as speaker in order to present KaeilOS/OE and its features, because I feel that many people would appreciate its stability and reliability (if only people would know its features better).
