If you are curious about IoT projects and aren’t sure where to start, or have a Raspberry Pi that you aren’t sure what to do with, I recommend checking out Cayenne.

TuxMachines: HTC 10 vs. Galaxy S7 vs. LG G5: Android Flagship Showdown

Wednesday 13th of April 2016 08:06:40 PM

As to which of these three phones you should buy, it's not an easy choice. This is the most competitive lineup of flagship phones we've seen in a long time. The Galaxy S7 has proved popular so far for its impressive package of performance and design. The G5 is a compelling option because of its semi-modular build that offers you more flexibility than the typical smartphone. We're going to need to put the HTC 10 through our full round of testing before we pass judgment, but so far it seems to be a premium alternative for customers that want a metal unibody phone that's a bit bigger and more solid-feeling than the G5 or S7. Check back soon for a full review and buying advice.

LXer: Cayenne: IoT made easy for the Raspberry Pi

Wednesday 13th of April 2016 07:58:38 PM
Cayenne can support multiple devices as well. Beyond adding as many Raspberry Pis as you want, you can select from a range of sensors, extensions and actuators that will be wired to your Raspberry Pi. Once the device is wired, you can then assign it to the GPIO pins. With your GPIO pins registered to certain devices, you can now set alerts or triggers to occur on schedules that you create through the dashboard.

Reddit: I'll write and publish a tutorial on about how to run (most) any program on Linux

Wednesday 13th of April 2016 05:32:27 PM

My name is Will Beddow. I'm a programmer, writer for, amateur hacker, and longtime Linux freak. Something that I've always enjoyed a lot is hacking various programs to work on platforms that they aren't made for/intended to be used on, be it through wine, editing the source, or most lately through Bash On Ubuntu on Windows (I even managed to get conky working!). Relatedly, gadgdetblur has decided to launch a new segment. I take suggestions of programs that you guys want to run on whatever platform, and if it's legal, moral, and possible, I'll write a detailed tutorial about how to do so. If you guys have any suggestions for my first article, let me know or email me at Thanks!

Reddit: Doing a tiny linux course with colleague - suggestions for method? (getting comfortable in terminal)

Wednesday 13th of April 2016 04:31:05 PM

Hello, i am going to teach a colleague some linux basics, she needs to use linux regularly on a graphical workstation. I was thinking of focusing on terminal usage for this moment though.

Two hours this time, and then return to more or less the same things in a week for two hours of repetition and questions. We will both have computers with putty on Windows, and a TV for displaying a presentation.

Do you have any suggestions on how to organize these lectures, based on your experience? Anything specifi i should mention that is often forgotten? Should we do some excercises? I'm grateful for any input you have.

I will go through some core utilities, but for instance a concept like screen/tmux might still be too confusing.
