Harvard Scientists Say It's Time To Start Thinking About Engineering the Climate

Slashdot - p, 2014-11-21 20:38
merbs writes: Harvard has long been home to one of the fiercest advocates for climate engineering. This week, Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences published a research announcement headlined "Adjusting Earth's Thermostat, With Caution." That might read as oxymoronic — intentionally altering the planet's climate has rarely been considered a cautious enterprise — but it fairly accurately reflects the thrust of several new studies published by the Royal Society, all focused on exploring the controversial field of geoengineering.

Windows Kernel Version Bumped To 10.0

Slashdot - p, 2014-11-21 19:56
jones_supa writes: In Windows, the kernel version number is once again in sync with the product version. Build 9888 of Windows 10 Technical Preview is making the rounds in a private channel and the kernel version has indeed been bumped from 6.4 to 10.0. Version 6.x has been in use since Windows Vista. Neowin speculates that this large jump in version number is likely related to the massive overhaul of the underlying components of the OS to make it the core for all of Microsoft's products. The company is working to consolidate all of its platforms into what's called OneCore, which, as the name implies, will be the one core for all of Microsoft's operating systems. It will be interesting to see if this causes any software compatibility issues with legacy applications.

Adobe's got Photoshop running in Chrome

OSNews - p, 2014-11-21 19:22
Using Photoshop usually requires lugging a typically cumbersome, expensive computer around, and changing that experience has been the dream of many creatives for years. As we found out back in September, it's a problem that Adobe has been actively working with Google to solve. The two companies have been working together for almost two years to bring Photoshop to the browser, and they finally have a working version called Photoshop Streaming that they're letting educational institutions apply to test over the next six months. Yesterday, I got a look at it in action when Adobe's director of engineering, Kirk Gould, remotely ran me through a brief demo of the program.

Version 2 of the kdbus patches posted

Linux Weekly News - p, 2014-11-21 19:22
The second version of the kdbus patches have been posted to the Linux kernel mailing list by Greg Kroah-Hartman. The biggest change since the original patch set (which we looked at in early November) is that kdbus now provides a filesystem-based interface (kdbusfs) rather than the /dev/kdbus device-based interface. There are lots of other changes in response to v1 review comments as well. "kdbus is a kernel-level IPC implementation that aims for resemblance to [the] protocol layer with the existing userspace D-Bus daemon while enabling some features that couldn't be implemented before in userspace."

How to add a dedicated number row to the Android keyboard

OSNews - p, 2014-11-21 19:20
Here's one of those things that's been around for a little bit, but well hidden. If you're a fan of the stock Google keyboard but would love to have a dedicated number row - particularly given the size of many of today's smartphones - you can do it. It's not just an Android 5.0 Lollipop feature, so you're able to do this on the Nexus 6 or LG G3 or HTC One or whatever. You will, however, have to do a little digging in the keyboard settings. One of those little tips that can really make your phone better.

Ask Slashdot: What's the Most Hackable Car?

Slashdot - p, 2014-11-21 19:15
An anonymous reader writes: When looking for a new (or used) car, I have readily available information regarding features, maintenance history, and potential issues for that specific model or generation. What I would really like is a car that is readily hackable on the convenience-feature level. For example, if I want to install a remote starter, or hack the power windows so holding 'up' automatically rolls it up, or install a readout on the rear of the car showing engine RPMs, what make/model/year is the best pick? Have any of you done something similar with your vehicle? Have you found certain models to be ideal or terrible for feature hacking?

Culberson As Chair of NASA Fundng Subcommittee Makes Europa Mission More Likely

Slashdot - p, 2014-11-21 18:32
MarkWhittington writes: As many have expected, Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) has been elevated to chair the House Appropriations Subcommittee for Commerce, Justice, and Science. The subcommittee has charge of NASA funding, something of keen interest for the congressman, whose Houston district is close to the Johnson Spaceflight Center. Moreover, Culberson's enthusiasm for space exploration goes far beyond what would be expected from a Texas representative. Culberson is a champion of a mission to Europa, a moon of Jupiter. Europa is an ice-covered moon that is thought to conceal an ocean of water, warmed by tidal forces, which might contain life. Using the heavy-lift Space Launch System, NASA could launch a large-scale probe to study Europa and ascertain whether it harbors alien life or not. Culberson's elevation makes such a mission far more likely to occur.
