LXer - Thu, 2016-10-13 14:44
The long legal war between Apple and Samsung reached the Supreme Court today. For the first time in a century, the High Court considered what the limits of "design patents" should be.Until they took up a starring role in Apple v. Samsung, design patents were like the poor, long-lost cousins of the better-known "utility" patents that cover machines themselves. Here's how this long-lasting technology case made its way to the high court:

3 command line conversion tools for Linux

LXer - Thu, 2016-10-13 13:40
Recently, a friend innocently asked me how many file formats there are. My semi-serious response was "Think of a soup bowl filled with beach sand."OK, there aren't quite that many file formats. That said, you've probably never heard of many of the formats that are commonly-used enough to warrant listing on Wikipedia. Chances are, you'll never see and never use most of them. If, however, you want or need to convert between file formats then there are a quite a few applications for the job.read more

Software recommendation: To-Do list

Reddit - Thu, 2016-10-13 12:42

Hey there,

I'm looking for an alternative to Wunderlist. I want something that is available both on Linux and Android (don't care about Windows or apple).

Syncronization is not required, but would be nice to have. Same goes for encryption.

I'm aware of "Turtl" and ""Simple note", but those are for note taking. I'm looking for a To do manager. Wunderlist is perfect, other than not being FOSS and unavailable on linux.

Do you've any recommendation?
