Tasty open standards: Pornhub to dump Flash in favor of HTML5
The march of HTML 5 dominance across the web has received an arousing boost with the news that popular porn site Pornhub is dumping flash in favor of the open web standard.
Whereas porn usually leads when it comes to embracing new technologies, the decision by Pornhub to abandon Flash was a case where instead it was following others, in particular Google The search giant announced in August that it would begin removing all support for Flash in its market-leading Google Chrome browser from version 53 that was due to be released in September.
Pornhub does, however, lead the porn industry, with competitors including YouPorn, xHamster, and RedTube still relying on Flash to serve their content.
How Chromebooks Are About to Totally Transform Laptop Design
Google’s first Chromebook was the kind of laptop you’d design if you didn’t give a damn about laptop design. It was thick, heavy, rubbery, boring, and black. Black keys, black body, black trackpad, black everything. Everything about the Cr-48 was designed to communicate that this device was still an experiment. Even the name, a reference to an unstable isotope of the element Chromium, was a hint at the chaos raging inside this black box. “The hardware exists,” Sundar Pichai told a crowd of reporters at the Cr-48’s launch event in December of 2010, “only to test the software.”
Moments later, Eric Schmidt took the stage and preached about how the “network computer” tech-heads had been predicting for decades was finally ready to change the world. “We finally have a product,” Schmidt said, “which is strong enough, technical enough, scalable enough, and fast enough that you can build actually powerful products on it.” Apparently already sensing the skeptical feedback Chrome OS would get, he gestured toward the audience and told them “it does, in fact, work.”
7 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Chromebook
Chromebook is a different thing from Netbooks with the fact that it does not have Windows being a huge difference. Chromebooks thus run on a fresh and different operating system that while it is not an old OS it isn’t a desktop kind of OS either but a mobile one.
Chromebooks have pretty hardware, especially if the Haswell processors they are running on, which are energy efficient, are anything to go by. Nonetheless, there are many reasons why buying Chromebooks make a lot of sense.

My mother owns a 10+ year old Dell computer. ...It's running Windows Vista. I know that it would be much better off running Linux, but my mother is unconvinced. So unconvinced, in fact, that no logical argument I've given has even remotely convinced her.
And so the purpose of this post is this: please tell her why she should let me install Linux. List as many reasons as you feel like listing. My hope is that if she sees that it's not just my opinion, she'll reconsider.submitted by /u/ARandomScientist
This question was asked 7 months ago here, but it's now archived and can't be commented on.
I do everything through the command line right now and always have, but a problem with my VPS's host has made me make an emergency move. It's a dedicated server and it won't be ready until tomorrow, so I have some time to mull it over. (Typically cPanel and its like have to be installed on a fresh server, or it will mess everything up.)
I'm looking for
- Something that will do the dirty work of setting up an email server.
- Something full featured enough to be used by a reseller. I'm not a reseller but I'd like to keep my options open.

The USB-enabled 55 x 25mm “Explore M3” board is based on NXP’s LPC1768 Cortex-M3 MCU, and supports Arduino IDE, FreeRTOS, and bare metal development.
Bangalore India-based startup Explore Embedded has soared past its exceptionally modest $700 CrowdSupply funding goal for its Explore M3 development board. Early bird packages are gone, but you can still buy in for $19 through Oct. 13, with volume discounts. The Explore M3 is also available with a $20 Soda Debug Adapter and a $49 ARM Starter Kit. Shipments are due Nov. 15.
Recently I purchased a Xeon E5-2609 v4 Broadwell-EP processor as a $300 Xeon with eight physical cores but clocked at just 1.7GHz and without any Turbo Boost while the TDP is 85 Watts. Here are some benchmarks compared to other LGA-2011 v3 CPUs in my possession under Linux along with an AMD FX reference point too and followed by some Skylake Xeon benchmarks.
TuxMachines: Free Software Foundation stresses necessity of full user control over Internet-connected devices
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the integration of Internet technology into a wider range of home devices than previously envisaged by most users. Early adopters of IoT may now have homes with Internet-connected lightbulbs, alarm systems, baby monitors and even coffee machines. Internet integration allows owners to have greater flexibility over their devices, making it possible to turn on their air conditioning as they leave work to cool the house before they return, to have curtains that automatically close based on sunset time, or lights that automatically turn off after the owner has left the house. Each individual benefit may seem marginal, but overall they add significant benefit to the owners.
There are lots of different compression tools available for Linux.
F&S has launched a 50 x 40mm “PicoCOMA9X” COM with an NXP Cortex-A9 and -M4 based i.MX6 SoloX SoC, available with a Linux BSP and an optional starter kit.
The PicoCOMA9X computer-on-module uses F&S Elektronik Systeme’s 50 x 40mm PicoCOM form-factor, which features an 80-pin plug connector. It is pin-compatible with other F&S PicoCOM modules such as the NXP Vybrid-F based PicoCOMA5 module. Like the German firm’s larger, 62 x 47mm Efus A9X COM, it incorporates NXP’s i.MX6 SoloX system-on-chip.
