AT&T releases white box spec for its Linux-based 5G routers

AT&T will deploy 60,000 5G routers compliant with a newly released white box spec hosted by the Open Compute Project. The routers will run Vyatta NOS Linux which will morph into an open source DANOS platform. This week AT&T will release detailed specs to the Open Compute Project for building white box cell site gateway […]

Kobo’s Forma e-reader takes on Kindle Oasis with an asymmetric design and premium price

Kobo’s latest e-reader is a complete about-face from its anonymous, cheap and highly practical Clara HD; the Forma is big, expensive and features a bold — not to say original — design. It’s clearly meant to take on the Kindle Oasis and e-reader fans for whom price is no object.
The $280 Forma joins a number of other e-readers in using a one-handed design, something which is, we might as well admit up front, isn’t for everyone. That said, I’ve found that my reading style on these devices has been able to adapt from one form factor to another — it’s not like they made it head-mountable or something. You still hold it like you would any other small device.
It uses an 8-inch E-Ink Carta display with 300 pixels per inch, which is more than enough for beautiful type. The frontlight — essentially a layer above the display that lights up

Wi-Fi Now Has Version Numbers, and Wi-Fi 6 Comes Out Next Year

The Wi-Fi Alliance said Wednesday it was rebranding the “802.11” Wi-Fi standards that have long served as a source of potential confusion for users. From now on, said the Wi-Fi Alliance, the current 802.11ac standard will be known as Wi-Fi 5, while its successor 802.11ax will be known as Wi-Fi 6. From a report: In the past, Wi-Fi versions were identified by a letter or a pair of letters that referred to a wireless standard. The current version is 802.11ac, but before that, we had 802.11n, 802.11g, 802.11a, and 802.11b. It was not comprehensible, so the Wi-Fi Alliance — the group that stewards the implementation of Wi-Fi — is changing it. All of those convoluted codenames are being changed. Now, instead of wondering whether “ac” is better than “n” or if the two versions even work together, you’ll just look at the number. Wi-Fi 5 is higher than Wi-Fi 4,

I had a thought, I wonder if it’s true, that most tech begins open, as a skunkworks project by a geek or two. If it catches on, inevitably someone tries to commercialize it. Often they are successful and the open version languishes. We should pay attention before it’s commercialized, and understand the freedom that comes from its openness. This came up in a piece I wrote on Monday. Let’s appreciate the Joni Mitchell view of things: there’s something inherently good and sweet about the “one-man band by the quick lunch stand.”

AmigaOS 3.1.4 For Classic Amigas Released

Mike Bouma shares the announcement from Hyperior Entertainment, which holds exclusive rights to AmigaOS: The new, cleaned-up, polished Amiga operating system for your 68K machine fixes all the small annoyances that have piled up over the years. Originally intended as a bug-fix release, it also modernizes many system components previously upgraded in OS 3.9. Contrary to its modest revision number, AmigaOS 3.1.4 is arguably as large an upgrade as OS 3.9 was, and surpasses it in stability and robustness. Over 320K of release notes cover almost every aspect of your favorite classic AmigaOS — from bootmenu to datatypes. Some of the highlights mentioned include: Over 20 Kickstart ROM modules and many more disk-based core OS components were fixed, updated, or added; Support for large hard disks; A modernized Workbench; and A colorful, professionally designed icon set is included, along with the traditional four-color icons.

Lexum to Provide Online Access to New Mexico Legal Information

New Mexico is one of the U.S. States where the official publishing of legislation and case law is centralized in the hands of a specialized agency, the New Mexico Compilation Commission (NMCC). Over the last few decades, the NMCC has been providing two distinct online services: a free website of unreported judgments and unannotated legislation, and a commercial service called NMOneSource where legal professionals can subscribe to get online access to the official compilation of primary legal information from New Mexico. Over the years, the technology supporting NMOneSource has fallen behind the rest of the legal publishing industry. This prompted the NMCC to recently initiate a project to modernize its infrastructure.
It is in this context that the NMCC discovered CanLII, the Supreme Court of Canada decision website, and other official websites powered by Lexum technology. These free access websites, with their advanced legal research features, convinced the NMCC that providing
