Amazon’s Chinese Counterfeit Problem Is Getting Worse

A report on CNBC, citing sellers, says that counterfeit problem on the platform has gotten worse after it made it easier for Chinese manufacturers to sell goods to U.S. consumers. The report gives an example of a seller Jamie Whaley who started a bedding business on Amazon that reached $700,000 in annual sales within three years. Her patented product called BedBand consists of a set of shock cords, clamps and locks designed to keep fitted bed sheets in place. Whaley found quite an audience, selling up to 200 units a day for $13.99 a set. BedBand climbed into the top 200 selling products in the home and kitchen category. That was 2013. By mid-2015, the business was in a tailspin. Revenue plummeted by half and Whaley was forced to lay off eight employees. Her sheet fastener had been copied by a legion of mostly Chinese knockoffs that undercut BedBand on

Portals: Using GTK+ in a Flatpak

The time is ripe for new ways to distribute and deploy desktop applications: between snappy, Flatpak, AppImage and others there are quite a few projects in this area.
Sandboxing
Most of these projects involve some notion of sandboxing: isolating the application from the rest of the system.
Snappy does this by setting environment variables like XDG_DATA_DIRS, PATH, etc,  to tell apps where to find their ‘stuff’ and using app-armor to not let them access things they shouldn’t.
Flatpak takes a somewhat different approach: it uses bind mounts and namespaces to construct a separate view of the world for the app in which it can only see what it is supposed to access.
Regardless which approach you take to sandboxing, desktop applications are not very useful without access to the rest of the system.  So, clearly, we need to poke some holes in the walls of the sandbox, since we want apps to interact with the

Mozilla Is Building A ‘Recommender System For the Web’

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Venture Beat: Mozilla unveiled a new project called the Context Graph. In short, the company is looking to build “a better forward button” that helps you understand a topic, find alternative solutions to a problem, and in general allow browsers to offer useful information without demanding input. Context Graph is a “recommender system for the web” that is supposed to help the company develop an understanding of browser activity at scale. By tapping into what and how people are browsing, Mozilla hopes to unlock “the next generation of web discovery on the internet.”
