The purpose of the PinePhone isn’t only to deliver a functioning Linux phone to end-users, but also to actively create a market for such a device, as well as to support existing and well established Linux-on-Phone projects.
The file system, called ZFS, was built by Sun Microsystems, which has since been acquired by Oracle. Torvalds wrote in an online forum on Jan 6 that he does not feel “safe” in adding ZFS code to the Linux project because of oracle tendency to file lawsuits against other companies, including and ongoing legal brawl between Google and Oracle.
Recently Riot Games announced that its working on an online First Person Shooter code named ‘Project A’. What we know is that it’s gonna be a class based shooter. And its gonna be completely out of the League of Legends universe. So its gonna be first time when Riot Games is developing something out of the League of Legends universe.
The blockchain is a distributed ledger that is completely open to anyone. They have interesting property, once some data get recorded inside a blockchain it gets almost impossible to change it.

A recently discovered vulnerability in the Sudo allows unprivileged users to run a command as root by specifying the user ID -1 or 4294967295. Sudo is one of the most powerful and commonly used utilities in all the Linux-based and UNIX Operating Systems. A vulnerability in that core utility has left everyone in utter confusion and frenzy.
Today’s computing is limited to having a single value of either 0 or 1 for each bit, quantum computing uses quantum bits (qubits) that are simultaneously in both states (0 and 1) at the same time. This phenomenon is called as the SUPERPOSITION. The consequence of this superposition is that quantum computers are able to test every solution to a problem at once. Further, because of this exponential relationship, such computers should be able to double their quantum computing power with each additional qubit.
