Docker Images Are Moving From Ubuntu To Alpine Linux

Docker is reportedly going to be migrating all of their official images from an Ubuntu base to now using Alpine Linux.

Alpine Linux is the lightweight distribution built atop musl libc and BusyBox while using a GrSecurity-enhanced Linux kernel. Alpine Linux uses OpenRC as its init system. If you are unfamiliar with this "Small. Simple. Secure." distribution, you can learn more via AlpineLinux.org. The image for Alpine is a mere 5MB.

LG will unveil the G5 on February 21st

It's no secret that LG has something planned for Mobile World Congress this month (it mentioned an event weeks ago), but the Korean tech giant is now making it clear as to what's up. It's posting teasers confirming a G5 unveiling just ahead of MWC, on February 21st. Yes, that's the same day that Samsung announces the Galaxy S7 -- unlike last year, LG isn't waiting until sometime after the big mobile trade show to debut its latest flagship smartphone.

The company is shy on details right now, although history suggests that it'll dribble out facts to whet your appetite. That isn't stopping the rumor mill, though. Historically reliable leaker Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) hears that the G5 may borrow a few pages from the V10, including a secondary display, a fingerprint reader and a dual-lens camera (this time, on the back). You might also get a speedier Snapdragon 820 processor, an "all-metal" enclosure and a "Magic Slot" that alters your phone's functionality through modules. If this is accurate, the G5 definitely won't be a me-too device.

Time-twisting shooter 'Superhot' arrives on February 25th

The innovative, time-based shooter Superhot has had a long, unusual road to completion -- it started out as a clever idea at a game jam, got off the ground through a successful crowdfunding campaign and built up tremendous hype through pre-release copies and countless "let's play" videos. At last, though, it's nearly here. The team has revealed that Superhot will be available on Linux, Mac and Windows PCs on February 25th. You can pre-order it at $14 for the regular Steam version, and $25 if you'd also like the soundtrack and a PDF art book. Xbox One gamers can buy the game sometime in the next few weeks.

If you'll recall, the buzz around Superhot comes from its turning the conventional first-person shooter formula on its head. Here, time only moves at normal speed when you move -- the challenge isn't so much dodging the hail of bullets as planning a route that won't box you into a corner. You also have one very fragile life, no power-ups and limited ammo (basically, whatever is in the guns you find). When you combine those with highly stylized graphics and a fourth-wall-breaking story, you get an experience that promises to be a breath of fresh air in a frequently stale genre.

ESP8266 Killer?

We’ve seen rumors floating around the Twittersphere about a new integrated microprocessor and WiFi SOC: the NL6621 from Nufront. Details are still scarce, but that doesn’t seem to be because the chip is vaporware: you could buy modules on Taobao.com and eBay right now for between two-and-a-half and three bucks, and Nufront’s website says they’ve produced a million modules since 2013.

The NL6621 WiFi SOC is powered by a 160 MHz ARM Cortex-M3 with 448 KB of RAM, and everything else is integrated in the SOC. The module has 32 GPIOs, SPI, I2C, I2S digital audio, and most of the …read more

'Five Nights at Freddy's World' removed from Steam

Five Nights at Freddy's, the jump-scare franchise depicted above that YouTubers love to make reaction videos to, has just joined company with Afro Samurai: it's had a release pulled from Steam due to poor reviews. Developer Scott Cawthon writes on the Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Steam listing that even though Five Nights at Freddy's World might have had a "very positive" rating at 87 percent, he's removing it because he wasn't happy with the reviews and ratings it'd been garnering. He's also requested that Steam-owner Valve remove the time limit from purchase refunds, so that no matter how long has passed between purchase and return, customers will get their money back. Previously, that expired once two weeks had passed. "It may take them awhile to set that up, but it will be in place soon," Cawthon writes. "I'm still going to work on FNaF World and polish it up."

Cawthon says he's polishing the game (Kotaku says that the original version was "kind of terrible") and will add a 3D overworld to the distinctly light-hearted role-playing game and that once he's finished, it'll be free. "I appreciate your support, and I encourage you all to refund your Steam game (even if you enjoyed the game), and download the new version when it becomes available on GameJolt." he writes. So there you have it: a game developer admits in earnest that he or she released an unfinished product and wants to make it up to the fans immediately. Refreshing, no?

Docker buys Unikernel Systems

Docker, the Californian technology company behind the open source virtual container platform, has announced the acquisition of Unikernel Systems, a Cambridge-based startup. Unikernel Systems has a rather unique product that Docker plans to integrate into its own tools and services as it views a future beyond just containers. The integration of Unikernels into Docker would allow developers to build even more efficient microservice architectures. What makes Unikernels interesting is that it brings fine tuned specialization to virtualization by not just duplicating and isolating full OS kernels, but by minimizing the functionality to a bare minimum to run a specific application.… [Continue Reading]

The Trouble With Intel’s Management Engine

Something is rotten in the state of Intel. Over the last decade or so, Intel has dedicated enormous efforts to the security of their microcontrollers. For Intel, this is the only logical thing to do; you really, really want to know if the firmware running on a device is the firmware you want to run on a device. Anything else, and the device is wide open to balaclava-wearing hackers.

Intel’s first efforts toward cryptographically signed firmware began in the early 2000s with embedded security subsystems using Trusted Platform Modules (TPM). These small crypto chips, along with the BIOS, form the …read more
