The Open-PC: one step closer to open-hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| At the Gran Canaria Open Desktop Summit in 
| July 2009, the Open-PC project was announced. 
| The statement said the project aimed to 
| “cooperatively design a Free Software based 
| computer by and for the community”. Further 
| this PC would use only hardware for which 
| there are free software drivers available. 
| This would be a PC with the minimal compromise 
| required for running a free desktop. In 
| January 2010 the project announced the launch 
| of its first product.

EFF Kicks Off Campaign to Free Your Phone

,----[ Quote ]
| The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is asking for the public's help in
| its new campaign to free cell phones from the software locks that stifle
| competition and cripple consumers. The campaign's website is
| FreeYourPhone.org.
|
| Hundreds of thousands of cell phone owners have modified their phones to
| connect to a new service provider or run the software of their choosing, and
| many more would like to. But the threat of litigation under the Digital
| Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) has driven them underground.
