Eelo: A Google-less Android alternative emerges

Video: Google tells Android app developers to prepare for 64-bit futureDislike Apple’s iPhone proprietary software with its battery malware? Tired of having Google look over your shoulder on Android? You’re not alone. Gaël Duval, creator of the popular early Linux distribution, Mandrake Linux, is sick and tired of both, so he’s building his own Android-based mobile operating system: eelo.Duval thinks, “Apple, Google, Facebook etc., business models are harmful for our economical and social environments.” In particular, he wants his privacy back. Stock Android depends on Google services, which means he doesn’t control his privacy. So, eelo is being designed with open-source software to preserve privacy while still using online services and adding a more attractive interface.Unlike the failed CyanogenMod, Duval has no intention of turning eelo into a business. “I want eelo to be a non-profit project ‘in the public interest,'” he said.Before turning his talents to building eelo, Duval

Intel Responds To Alleged Chip Flaw, Claims Effects Won’t Significantly Impact Average Users

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Hot Hardware: The tech blogosphere lit up yesterday afternoon after reports of a critical bug in modern Intel processors has the potential to seriously impact systems running Windows, Linux and macOS. The alleged bug is so severe that it cannot be corrected with a microcode update, and instead, OS manufacturers are being forced to address the issue with software updates, which in some instances requires a redesign of the kernel software. Some early performance benchmarks have even suggested that patches to fix the bug could result in a performance hit of as much as 30 percent. Since reports on the issues of exploded over the past 24 hours, Intel is looking to cut through the noise and tell its side of the story.
