You need an adapter (or a new cable) to plug your iPhone into the new MacBook Pros

Apple just announced a lineup of three new MacBook Pro laptops, each of which is decked out with four (four!) USB Type-C ports. And as is the case with all things Apple these days, you know what...

[release notes] 2.0.4/Fiskarsinjoki [released] - together.jolla.com

It took a long time before we delivered the previous update (2.0.2). Our goal now is to start providing updates in shorter intervals.
This update, 2.0.4 alias Fiskarsinjoki, introduces quite a few new features and bug fixes. One of the key new features is the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card. This helps to keep the Phone Memory from getting cluttered and in good shape. Another long-awaited new feature being introduced is conference calling. You can now rotate the device to landscape in Calculator to access the new scientific mode with support for high-precision, brackets and trigonometric and exponential operations. And, you can use Gallery edit options to adjust brightness and contrast of photos. You can also launch the synchronization of Calendar in the app itself, and share files from the File manager of Storage page (in Settings). Last but not least, we have upgraded the Browser engine.

Heh, well, it would be surprising to have a schedule if the calls for proposals are still open.

FOSDEM 2017 - Accepted developer rooms



I see there is a "Decentralized internet" room for the first time, great news! Anyone from #Diaspora, #Friendica, #Hubzilla, #GNUSocial, #Pumpio, #Mediagoblin or other #decentralized social network project peeps planning to submit talks? Doesn't look like the call for proposals is out yet for this room. Will be sure to spend some time in this room in any case.

@MediaGoblin (Christopher) - maybe a good chance to push out #ActivityPub if you're planning to attend this year, hmm?

Static types in Python, oh my(py)!

Over the last few years, static type checkers have become available for popular dynamic languages like PHP (Hack) and JavaScript (Flow and TypeScript), and have seen wide adoption. Two years ago, a provisional syntax for static type annotations was added to Python 3. However, static types in Python have yet

So, I was looking on why linked post from hacks.mozilla.org shows up as an empty iframe.

I would say indiscriminate site-wide blanket security measures.





 
And still, plenty of people thinks that app stores are good, and are the way to go, and that is normal to pay for the privilege to develop to grow the visibility and the profits of companies behind this stores... funny people...

Apple Has Removed Dash from the App Store - Kapeli Blog

Ramblings from Kapeli's sole developer

App Stores are a good idea; as are package repositories :-P but they should not be the only way to install software on a device.

There a huge difference between a package repository maintained by a community with the aim to provide free software to the community itself and an apple store maintained by a company with the ultimate aim to gain money (directly through the sale commissions, by improving the perceived value of something they sell or with other less honest methods).

Of course a system that provided a community maintained package repository but didn't allow alternative methods of installing packages, even to advanced users, would have serious issues, but I don't really see a reason for it to happen.
