+ - Double Amputee Walks Again, Thanks to Bluetooth

Submitted by Vexler
Vexler (127353) writes "As an unlikely use of a communications protocol, an Iraq veteran who is a double amputee is walking again, thanks to a set of Bluetooth-enabled receivers strategically placed around his artificial ankles. These devices coordinate with each other to make sure that he is using the right force and making the right strides as he walks forward, and also help him to walk longer before he tires out. Nice to see what we are doing to help these soldiers."

+ - SCO Takes On PJ Herself, Files Motion to Depose

Submitted by Vexler
Vexler (127353) writes "In their latest attempt at a "scorch-earth" strategy to smear just about anyone related to this trial, SCO has filed a motion to depose Pamela Jones of Groklaw. According to this story, SCO accuses PJ once again of working with Novell and IBM while receiving assistance from them. Be sure to read the accompanying PDFs, but I suspect that PJ will have no trouble finding someone in the open-source community who has the legal training and resolve to defend her with vigor."
