Android Phone Solves Rubik's Cube In 12.5 Seconds

"A Lego Mindstorms robotics kit controlled by an HTC Nexus One
smartphone successfully untangled a Rubik's Cube puzzle in 12.5 seconds at this
weeks ARM technical conference in Silicon Valley. The current 3x3x3
cube-solvers's 15-second average represents a substantial improvement over the
25-second solutions of an earlier version, which was powered by a circa-2006
Nokia N95 smartphone, thanks to a faster (1GHz) CPU, more RAM, and revamped
cube-solving algorithms. ARM Engineer David Gilder, who created the robotic
cube-solver, claims the current version's algorithms can handle cube
complexities up to 100x100x100, assuming he build the mechanics. In terms of
racing humans, Gilder says the Lego robotics kits can only manage around 1.5
moves per second, whereas human players can make between 5 and 6 moves per
second, amazingly enough."

IE6 Addiction Inhibits Windows 7 Migrations

"As anyone in the industry will tell you, a lot of money went
into developing web applications specific to IE6. And corporations can't leave
Windows XP for Windows 7 until IE6 runs (in some way) on Windows 7. Microsoft
wants to leave that non-standard browser mess behind them, but as the article
notes, 'Organizations running IE6 have told Gartner that 40% of their
custom-built browser-dependent applications won't run on IE8, the version
packaged with Windows 7. Thus, many companies face a tough decision: Either
spend time and money to upgrade those applications so that they work in newer
browsers, or stick with Windows XP.' Support for XP is going to end in April
2014. In order to deal with this, companies are looking at virtualizing IE6 only
(instead of a full operating system) so that it can run on Windows 7 — even
though Microsoft says this violates licensing agreements. IE6 is estimated to
have roughly 16% of browser market share, and due to mistakes in the past it may
never truly die."

33 Developers Leave OpenOffice.org

"We all knew it would come to this, and it has finally happened —
33 developers have left OpenOffice.org to join The Document Foundation, with
more expected to leave in the next few days. After Oracle acquired Sun
Microsystems, OpenOffice.org fell into the hands of Oracle, as did a lot of
other products. So, last month a few very prominent members of the
OpenOffice.org community decided to form The Document Foundation and fork
OpenOffice.org as LibreOffice, possibly fearing that it could go the OpenSolaris
way."

Microsoft Open Sources F#

"Don Syme has announced the release of the F# compiler source
code as a code drop under Apache 2.0. He wrote, 'The F# PowerPack now includes
libraries, tools and the compiler/library source code drops. I'd like to take a
moment to explain the F# team's approach to this. Firstly, the source for the F#
compiler in our MSI/CTP releases has been available for some time, in the
releases themselves, so in that sense there's not much new in this release.
Secondly, we've always made sure we have a free download binary release of F#
available, and will continue to do that, and that should still be the main way
you "get" a release of F#. However, we've long discussed making compiler+library
source available in a different way. After some discussion, we've decided to do
this via a "code drop" model, where we make available versions of the
compiler+library code logically matching each release of the F# language itself.'"

Apache Declares War On Oracle Over Java

"The Apache Software Foundation, feeling increasingly
marginalized as Oracle asserts its control over the Java platform, is fighting
back, trying to rally fellow members of the Java Community Process to block the
next version of the language if Oracle doesn't make it available under an open
license amenable to Apache. Last month's Oracle-IBM pact was a blow against the
ASF, which had worked with IBM in the past, but it appears that Apache isn't
giving up the fight."
