Cable Companies Duped Community Groups Into Fighting Net Neutrality

Slashdot - Thu, 2014-06-12 04:25
walterbyrd (182728) writes Last week, it transpired that the big cable companies were bankrolling fake consumer groups like Broadband for America and The American Consumer Institute. These 'independent consumer advocacy groups' are, in truth, nothing of the sort, and instead represent the interests of its benefactors, in the fight against net neutrality. If that wasn't bad enough, VICE is now reporting that several of the real community groups (and an Ohio bed-and-breakfast) that were signed up as supporters of Broadband for America were either duped into joining, or were signed up to the cause without their consent or knowledge.

Google Map GPS Cell Phone Tracker 3.2.4

Freshmeat - Thu, 2014-06-12 03:00
Google Map GPS Cell Phone Tracker allows you to track Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Java ME cellphones using Google Maps. It has two parts, a server and phone clients. You have a choice of two servers, using asp.net and SQL server or PHP and MySQL. The server software allows you to view cellphone locations in realtime using Google Maps and store routes and view them later. The client applications send their locations to the website periodically. All four applications work properly in the background and are written natively on each platform.

Release Notes: Android intervals above one minute were fixed, and the AdSense ads publisher ID was removed.

Admin4 2.1.5

Freshmeat - Thu, 2014-06-12 02:50
Admin4 is a tool for server maintenance via several plugin modules, running on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and many more platforms. Currently, plugins for BIND DNS, LDAP, and PostgreSQL are included. It is designed as a framework, using Python for fast development of plugins and custom modifications. The DNS plugin should be able to query (axfr) any type of server, and performs updates via DDNS, which ensures that it won't interfere with other DDNS clients (DHCP, SAMBA4). For BIND 9.7 and up, statistics are supported as well and used to retrieve the server's zones automatically. The LDAP plugin features browsing and generic editing of all types of LDAP entries with schema support. In addition, high-level editing of objects like users, groups and samba domains is supported. Custom objectClasses and attributes can easily be added. The PostgreSQL module features a query tool with centrally stored snippets, a data tool with filter presets and a database object browser.

Release Notes: This release has an object find function that lets you locate objects in the browser tree faster. The LDAP and PostgreSQL module enhance this feature, by not just scanning the tree, but searching the database and populating the object browser tree if necessary.

Release Tags: Minor

Rambo Tribble (1273454) writes Synaptics Inc., of touchpad fame, is acquiring Renesas SP Drivers Inc, a division of Japanese chipmaker Renesas Electronics Corp. Renesas SP is the exclusive supplier of Apple's display driver chips for the iPhone.

Characterized as 'thrilled' to be back in Apple's supply chain, Synaptics CEO, Rick Bergman, is quoted as saying, '... I don't believe they do any driver chips internally so that would really be an opportunity for us.'
