  • An In-Depth Look at Text-to-Speech in Linux

    It’s been an interesting two weeks, talking about and looking into why text-to-speech (TTS) is such a mess in Linux. I’ve spoken with seventeen of you; seventeen who know a bit about software programming. “A bit” is a purposeful understatement. Some of you have forgotten more about software programming than I will ever know. That being the case, I have learned a bit about why TTS in Linux is next to worthless. For those who are just joining into the conversation, let me catch you up quickly.

  • You can now pre-order the best Android TV device from Amazon

    Android TV devices have left a lot to be desired so far. Back at CES Razer showed off a device that should finally do justice to Android TV. The Razer Forge TV is a beast of a set-top box, and you can pre-order it right now from Amazon. Razer is typically known for their gaming products, which is precisely what makes this device so great.

  • LG G2 Android 5.0 Lollipop Problems Frustrate Users

    The much anticipated LG G2 Android 5.0 Lollipop update is finally here and slowly arriving for more and more owners, but the Android 5.0 Lollipop update is also causing problems for many.

  • Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Review

    Google’s Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop update has been rolling out slowly for several and we’re finally starting to see Google make a big push with the roll out. With that in mind, we want to take a look at how the Nexus 5 Android 5.1 update has been performing on Google’s aging former flagship. This is our Nexus 5 Android 5.1 review.

  • U.S. Celluar Samsung Galaxy S5 Android 5.0.1 Lollipop Update
  • Android 5.1 OTA Update Now Rolling Out To The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition

    Before you ask, yes, this article is basically just another excuse for me to use Android Police's favorite device abbreviation, LGGP83GPE. (That's the short-lived Google Play Edition of the LG G Pad 8.3, from way back in 2013.) According to at least one Twitter user and, hey, my own tablet, the LGGP83GPE is getting its Android 5.1 update right about now. If you're running stock software, head to the usual spot (Settings>About tablet>System updates) to check for yours.

  • Is Google bringing Android and Chrome OS together?

    The speculation about Google merging Chrome OS and Android has been a constant over the last few years. Why does Google have two separate systems when everyone else is merging? Why doesn’t Chrome just get folded into Android? Google has to kill one of them off. It’s odd that the tech world insists on Highlander rules – there can be only one. But the truth is that Google can bring them closer and closer together, and create a seamless experience for us, and it doesn’t need one to assimilate the other in order to do that.

Android Police notes that the new version became available for the slate on Monday. Google updated and posted the software for many of its own Nexus devices a few weeks ago. If you have one of those, you can download and install the Android 5.1 factory image directly from Google here.

  • Google just demolished Tim Cook's case against Android

    Last week, Google published its comeback. The company's "Android Security 2014 Year in Review" report shows that less than 1% of Android devices have any malware. Google scans Active Android devices with a product called "Verify Apps," which seeks out viruses, ransomware, or other "potentially harmful applications" (PHAs).

  • Android apps to run on Windows, Macs and Linux with ‘Arc Welder’

TuxMachines: The best HDMI operating system sticks

Tuesday 7th of April 2015 11:06:49 PM

Google recently grabbed a lot of headlines for its new Chromebit, a Chrome OS computer in a HDMI stick. That's fine, but Google and Asus are far from the first to put a computer on an HDMI stick. That honor goes to FXI Technologies Cotton Candy, which released it first model in 2012.

LXer: How to create an HTTP tunnel on Linux with httptunnel

Monday 6th of April 2015 05:09:24 AM
HTTP-encapsulated tunnels are useful when you want to use games, IM clients, or P2P sharing applications across restrictive firewalls or proxies which tend to block pretty much everything except well known traffic such as HTTP traffic.

Reddit: I'm looking to get back into Linux after a long hiatus.

Monday 6th of April 2015 05:01:15 AM

I used to use ubuntu fairly exclusively on my home systems, but I'm looking to branch out of the debian tree. It has been a long time though, and I don't know what the "best" distro to use is (in terms of community support, updated repositories, etc). Any pointers?

I'm not afraid to install Arch, Gentoo, or compile my own (well, maybe a little more scared of this option haha).

Since that point on Qt4 received only bugfixes. Upstream is about to release the last point release, 4.8.7. This means that only severe bugs like security ones will get a chance to get solved.
  • LinuxFest NorthWest 2015, ownCloud 8 for stable Fedora / EPEL
    The Fedora booth was extra fun this year. As well as the OLPC XO systems we usually have there (which always do a great job of attracting attention), Brian Monroe set up a whole music recording system running out of a Fedora laptop, with a couple of guitars, bass, keyboard, and even a little all-in-one electronic drum…thing. He had multitrack recording via Ardour and guitar effects from Guitarix. This was a great way to show off the capabilities of Fedora Jam, and was very popular all weekend – sometimes it seemed like every third person who came by was ready to crank out a few guitar chords, and we had several bass players and drummers too. I spent a lot of time away from the booth, but even when I was there we had pretty much a full band going quite often.
