You Have No Right to Remain Silent

Anyone who has ever watched a cop show knows that you have a right to remain silent in response to police questioning, and that if you knowingly waive that right, "anything you say can be used against you in a court of law." The Miranda warnings, named after the 1966 Supreme Court case that gave rise to them, are deeply embedded in both legal and popular culture.

Given the warnings' established place in police procedures, TV cops and real-life police officers might be surprised to learn that the first Miranda right is not a right at all, at least according to the government.

Go-OpenOffice.org

An alternative OpenOffice.org version, enhanced by Novell [lots of Linux distributions already use this one instead of the official version from openoffice.org, with the purpose of including new features and fixes that do not get easily integrated in the OOo-build up-stream core. The new features are shared with Novell's edition of OOo and include:

  • VBA macros support.
  • Faster start up time.
  • "A linear optimization solver to optimize a cell value based on arbitrary constraints built into Calc".
  • Multimedia content supports into documents, using the gstreamer multimedia framework.
  • Support for Microsoft Works formats, WordPerfect graphics (WPG format) and T602 files imports.

Really neat stuff, like real and very large full-colour holograms [Cheoptics360], the reactable and other neat interfaces. The multitouch I already saw over a year ago, but it's still amazing
