Heise.de berichtet von der IFA, das die Telekom dort Router mit einer Warnfunktion vorführt. Diese Warnfunktion schlägt an wenn der PC Teil eines Botnet ist. Dazu nutzt die Telekom Daten die in selbstbetriebenen Honeypots gesammelt werden.
Die eigentliche News hier ist doch nicht diese Funktion, sondern wie die Telekom sie realisieren will – mit einer auf OpenWRT basierenden Platform. Ein geniales Router-Linux auf Provider-Hardware?! Endlich nicht mehr diese minmalistische Software, und hoffentlich damit auch keine Arcadyan Hardware mehr – denn, so weit ich weiß, diese ist nicht mit OpenWRT (oder sonstigen Linux-Distributionen) kompatibel. Aber vermutlich wird auch diese wieder kaputt-simplifiziert wie die meisten Provider-Router.
Aber immerhin, damit hätte man eine gute Hardware-Platform die sich mit OpenWRT, DD-WRT oder ähnlichen betreiben lässt…
The last time frame announced by Hannspree ends today, so I wrote them again – guess they can’t hear it anymore
This I got in answer:
Update #1 – 09/09/2013
Monday passed, atleast the business time, and no sourcecode or update from Hannspree UK. Will wait till tomorrow until I annoy them again
Ich starte mal wieder einen Mini-Versuch dieses Blog (und meine Tools etc.) kostendeckend zu betreiben. Daher werden ab sofort alle externen Links über Adf.ly geleitet. Ist zur Zeit erst mal nur ein Probelauf.
Meinungen dazu gerne in den Kommentaren.
Just got another update from Hannspree UK. We can expect the source release somewhere in the next week!
Heute haben wir einen Brief von der Unfallkasse erhalten, wegen Neles Unfall im Kindergarten. Mit dabei waren auch gleich 3 andere Fälle, von uns völlig fremden Personen. In einem Fall inkl. 2 CD-Rs.
This weeks answer already came pro-active, without me asking for the code/an ETA. And again personal, not from RandomSupportDrone #42 – I really like the Hannspree support till now. (But we will see how my RMA will go )
Seems my Hannspad already has a graphic glitch. After testing the root-able-ness and the hunt for the sourcecode I’m now gonna test the RMA.
It seems to be a lose connector or soldering point, because with slight bending it’s possible to get a normal view. But that doesn’t hold on for long. I’m pretty sure I could fix it myself if I open the tablet, but for now I’m waiting for response from Hannspree on my request if I can RMA it. Problem with RMA’ing is that I have no proof of purchase since I won it. Hope they will handle it like a purchased one and simply exchange it.
Update #1 / 2013-08-16:
I’ve exchanged some Emails with NovaServe.eu, which handle RMA services for Hannspree in Germany. So far it seems they wont replace/repair this just weeks old unit. Riding on their process without showing any understanding… Guess how that will influence my upcoming review
Update #2 / 2013-08-16 (2):
The website which ran the giveaway from which this units comes is very helpful and using it’s contact to Hannspree. Will get an update in the next days. Based on the previous very nice contacts with Hannspree I bet it will all sort out now as we got NovaServe out of the communication chain. But maybe not, all my contacts has been with Hannspree UK till now. We will see…
Update #3 / 2013-08-16 (3):
TabletCommunity.de contacted the PR agency, which supplied the tablet to the giveaway. (Funny, thought it was supplied directly from Hannspree till now – but doesn’t matter anyway…) They said to them in response (got a forward of the reply) that they will take care of the issue. NovaServe still didn’t answered my last mail, which I send just minutes before I’ve got the previous mail from TC.de…
Update #4 / 2013-08-26:
It seems I can soon finish up the review, and enjoy the tablet again.
Today I’ve asked the PR agency (see update #3) about the current status, after they said on 08/16 that they will take care of it. They were a bit surprised that it wasn’t all finished already and just hours later I’ve got another email, by NovaServe, asking for serial number and my postal address. So it should be just a matter of days now. On a sidenote, in the meantime I’ve got several (unasked and pro-active) updates from Hannspree UK regarding the sourcecode request. The Hannspree support is really nice.
I want to add that I totally understand the fact, that NovaServe answered with canned responses at first – every business has their processes. I’ve learned that lesson while working for T-Mobile .
What i can’t understand is that they didn’t checked with Hannspree if this can be handled when i explained the situation. Instead they basicly said “We need a paper that shows it’s yours and its in the warranty time (even if we confirmed that already) – but it can’t be the one that you can provide” (my last mail to them was never answered). But as that problem was solved/skipped now, the support reactions was fast and good. And like mentioned several times already, the direct Hannspree support folks on social media were always fast, nice and kindly.
Stay tuned for the final review
