This Compact Mechanical Keyboard Is Great For Both Work and Play

Want a mechanical keyboard, but don’t need (or want) a number pad? This tenkeyless CM Storm QuickFire has your name on it for just $73 today. And while it’s technically listed as a gaming keyboard, its understated design and relatively quiet
Cherry MX Red switches make it appropriate for office use
as well. Read more…

Adios Apt and Yum? Ubuntu’s Snap Apps Are Coming To Distros Everywhere

An anonymous reader shares an Ars Technica report: Ubuntu’s “snappy” new way of packaging applications is no longer exclusive to Ubuntu. Canonical today is announcing that snapd, the tool that allows snap packages to be installed on Ubuntu, has been ported to other Linux distributions including Debian, Arch, Fedora, and Gentoo among others. To install snap packages on non-Ubuntu distributions, Linux desktop and server users will have to first install the newly cross-platform snapd. This daemon verifies the integrity of snap packages, confines them into their own restricted space, and acts as a launcher. Instructions for creating snaps and installing snapd on a variety of distributions are available at this website. Snaps can exist on the same system as either deb or RPM packages. Snaps aren’t the only new package manager for Linux distributions that aims to simplify installation of applications. There’s also AppImage and OrbitalApps.

Serverless Sync in Web Apps Using Bit Torrent

TL;DR – Here is a demo Code

Our team has built a lot of Progressive Web Apps recently to demonstrate
how we think they can be built: Airhorner,
Voice Memos, Guitar Tuner,
SVG-OMG are a few that spring to mind. One thing
that is common across all of these sites is that they have no server component to store and
synchronise data. We built these sites as examples and reference implementations of the types
of experiences that we can deliver on the web, they were never intended to
be full “Apps” that you would build as a business.

I recently had an idea for another Web App that was inspired by
Ben Thompson’s Future of Podcasting
PodCast. I wanted to make Pod Casting as simple as visiting your site and
pressing a record button on the page (I did something similar years ago
called FriendBoo
but that had to use the PSTN telephone system).

Technically we have all the parts of the web platform to

The Car Hacker’s Handbook digs into automotive data security

 In the coming age of autonomous cars, connected cars, and cars that can communicate with each other, the city’s infrastructure, our phones, and the entire internet of things, data security is going to be paramount. That’s why Craig Smith, who has spent 20 years working in banking and healthcare digital security, wrote The Car Hacker’s Handbook: A Guide for the Penetration Tester. Read More

Ubuntu ‘Snap’ now universal — coming to Linux distros like Fedora, Arch, OpenSUSE, and more!

My biggest complaint about Linux based desktop operating systems is fragmentation. There are too many desktop environments, too many package managers, heck, too many distros! Not only can end-users be negatively impacted by too many choices, but more importantly, developers can be spread too thin. Ultimately, the Linux community ends up being unfocused and unable to move the desktop dial. Today, something miraculous happens. Believe it or not, the Linux Community largely bands together to embrace Ubuntu’s “Snap” packages. Yes, you are reading that correctly — competing Linux-based operating systems like Fedora, Gentoo, Arch, and more, will utilize the now-universal “Snap,”… [Continue Reading]

Checked C from Microsoft open sourced

README.md

Checked C is an extension to C that adds static and dynamic checking to detect or prevent common programming
errors such as buffer overruns, out-of-bounds memory accesses, and incorrect type casts. This repo contains the
specification for the extension, test code, and samples. For the latest version of the specification and the
draft of the next version, see the Checked C releases page.

We are creating a modified version of LLVM/clang that supports Checked C. The code for the modified
version of LLVM/clang lives in the
Checked C clang repo
and the Checked C LLVM repo.

See Contributing for how to get involved with Checked C and contribute to the project.

The software in this repository is covered by the MIT license. See the file LICENSE.TXT for the license. The
Checked C specification is made available by Microsoft under the OpenWeb Foundation Final
Specification Agreement, version 1.0.
Contributions of code to the Checked LLVM/clang repos are

Checked C from Microsoft Research

The Checked C research project is investigating how to extend the C programming language so that programmers can write more secure and reliable C programs. The project is developing an extension to C called Checked C that adds checking to C to detect or prevent common programming errors such as buffer overruns, out-of-bounds memory accesses, and incorrect type casts.

Finding out more
The latest version of the Checked C specification is available here. The Checked C repository has the LaTex files for the specification, as well as tests for the language extension tests. We are currently implementing Checked C in LLVM/clang. The Checked C clang repository and the Checked C LLVM repository have the source code for the compiler implementation.
Checked C is an open, collaborative research project. Researchers and developers can contribute to the specification and the compiler implementation on Github. We are working with Michael Hicks and Andrew Ruef at the
