We’re At Google+




re: Google +

Yeah, lets all be unique TOGETHER.

What a bunch of sheeple.

Did they learn nothing since AOL?

Or how music has all turned to crap now that most radio stations are owned by a handful of companies.

Before this social media cluster frack, sites worked on their own branding. Now like mindless drones all their efforts are going towards building the social media's brand.

What a bunch of morons. Good luck living with someone elses decisions, this is just the tip of the iceberg until it's all just one big website.

Have fun differentiating your market share then.

We’re At Google+

We have a google page for PCLinuxOS. http://goo.gl/QdZnz

I see other distros there too.

Say Baaaaaaaaaaaaaa

google+ is cool

I can see why you would not use any social media being so anti-social. hahahaha

Google Plus is okay.

My LUG starting using Google plus after the one guy in the group with social skills moved away. Now every meeting has a "Hangout" element, and it's made our meetings a lot more lively, as people from all over join in. It became even more important when area flooding damaged the building where we have our meetings.

A friend died last week, and as I helped his sister make the arrangements, I discovered a funeral home that has a page on Facebook.

There are good and bad uses of social media, and i think we'll be sorting them out for a long time.

Notifications Without User Interaction on Ubuntu Are Annoying

The Unity desktop environment has a simple and rather ineffective system notification mechanism and it looks like that's not going to change, not even with the arrival of Unity 8. Read more

Librem Linux Laptop Drops NVIDIA Graphics But Still Coming Up Short Of Goal

One of the oddest things I found about the crowd-funded Librem 15 laptop when writing about it last month was that it wanted to be open-source down to the component firmware/microcode yet they opted to ship with a NVIDIA GPU. In an updated earlier this month, at least they came to their senses and dropped the discrete NVIDIA GPU. While I have no problems recommending NVIDIA graphics for Linux gamers and those wanting the best performance, that's only when using the proprietary drivers, and certainly wouldn't recommend it for a fully open-source system -- NVIDIA on the desktop side doesn't do much for the open-source drivers, let alone down to the firmware/microcode level. Instead the Librem folks have opted to upgrade the design to using an Intel Core i7 4770HQ processor that features more powerful Intel Iris Pro 5200 Graphics, which isn't as powerful as a discrete NVIDIA GPU but at least is more open-source friendly.
