Adapting Digicom USB Wave HSUPA for linux embedded

Digicom USB Wave HSUPA

I just adapted a weird existing driver for Pirelli Chipset adopted by Digicom modem (approx. 75,00 euro), creating a new version v0.7.3 suitable for kernel 2.6.30.1.
Like most of the HUAWEI devices (like Vodafone one) you are going to face with an annoying behaviour that present the device as USb storage the first time you connect it.
You have to eject it in order to allow the system to detect it as modem ttyUSB0.
The most funny thing is that the producer didn't care about any other linux version than Ubuntu 8.10 with kernel 2.6.27-8.
Of course embedded devices don't have all the features you may have on a desktop distribution, moreover if you have a headless console based system.

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
