Submission + - Fedora 25 Alpha Linux distro now available (betanews.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Today, Fedora 25 Alpha sees release. While the pre-release distribution is not ready for end users, it does give testers an early start at poking around.

Keep in mind what an Alpha release is folks — this is pre-Beta. In other words, it is littered with bugs, and you should definitely not run it on a production machine. There are already some show-stopping known issues — a couple are related to dual-booting with Windows (scary). One bug can destroy OS X data when dual-booting on a Mac!

Submission + - Spy Cam Found in American Airlines Lavatory (nbcnews.com)

mreed911 writes: Someone staring at the ceiling while "doing their business" in a lavatory on an American Airlines 767 from New York to San Francisco noticed something that didn't belong — a spy cam. Apparently some flash-drive/cam combo, the object was simply taped to the ceiling. No reports as to whether anyone on the plane claimed ownership, but the plane was diverted to Kansas City, evacuated and searched. So far, NBC News is the only one reporting the story.
