Google's Russian Android Appeal Falls Flat
A Russian appeals court recently rejected Google's appeal of a $6.75 million fine regulators imposed on it for anticompetitive behavior -- that is, for forcing mobile device vendors to put Google Play apps on the main screens of devices using the Android operating system. The Ninth Arbitration Appeal Court's ruling, handed down last month, means that the court considered the decision of Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service to be reasonable and legitimate. Google therefore would have to pay the fine and take steps to remedy the situation.
The Android Runtime On Chrome OS Makes Use Of Wayland

Readers in the Phoronix Forums pointed out that the ARC++ runtime makes use of Wayland, per a session description for this month's XDC2016 conference in Helsinki.
How the new iPhone 7 compares to the best Android phones
Apple announced the latest iterations of the iPhone today, with what the company claims are its best iPhones yet. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus bring faster processors, new cameras, and some minor visual updates to antenna placement and color choices from last year's iPhone 6S — but these improvements come at the cost of the 3.5mm headphone jack.
And while Apple has always been coy about the actual specifications of their devices, hard numbers for processor speed, RAM, and battery life are less important than ever nowadays. With phones like the Galaxy Note 7 leading the pack despite claims of “underpowered” hardware, it’s clear that a good experience in using a smartphone is far more crucial than necessarily having the fastest processor, most megapixels, or highest screen resolution. Which, to be fair, is more or less the strategy Apple’s been betting on for the last few years with its previous iPhones, and there’s no reason to suspect why the new models won’t continue to live up to that.
LG launches V20 smartphone with Android 7.0 Nougat
LG took the wraps off the V20, its latest Android flagship, at an event in San Francisco this evening. The phone, a successor to last year's V10, is the first to ship with Google's latest Android 7.0 Nougat. Like it's predecessor. the V20 contains a dual-camera system and a second display located at the top of the phone. Both have been upgraded in this year's model; the cameras are more capable and the second display is now brighter with bigger font. More importantly, the V20 not only retains the headphone jack some phone makers are trying to phase out, but it also packs in some audiophile-grade features for music lovers who like lossless file formats and expensive headphones.

Ubuntu Phone finally has a photo editing app. Although early alpha quality, Instant FX for Ubuntu is already looking like an impressive app. And with so few native Ubuntu apps around, each one is truly appreciated. Now, obvious things first: InstantFX is very obviously styled around the Instagram Android & iOS app’s editing interface.

Windscape, a first-person exploration adventure where you play a young girl will come to Linux
The game is currently in Early Access, but it has fully positive reviews as of right now which is a lovely sign of what's to come for us.
The developer mentions they don't want it to become a stat-based RPG and exploration game, so it's much more about the adventure aspect which sounds nice for people who want a change of pace.
Got of case of the mid week blues? Try 'Iron Snout', a free action game for Linux that was recently updated
I gave it a quick try and it's actually surprisingly engaging. It seems like an extremely simple game at first, but it relies on some really quick reaction times when it heats up a bit so it might actually surprise you.
Infinium Strike, the rather cool tower defence game in space is to gain a DLC
Infinium Strike is one Tower Defence game that actually impressed me somewhat. It was like being in command of the Battlestar Galactica, and it seems it has sold well enough to warrant a DLC.

I am just learning Vi so I apologize if this is an easy question.
I have been looking but have been unable to find a way to copy a file to a different directory (already exists) while in Vi, while also making that copied file the new current working file.
Does anyone know of a command to do this in Vi?
The only way I have been able to do it is to copy the file to the new dir, then opening the file using two separate commands. I am trying to find a way to copy it to the new directory while also opening that new copy in its new directory to make changes.
Thanks for any advice or help!submitted by /u/cosmoninja
