Linux Video of the Week: Limit Theory Game Developer Switches to Linux

Game developer Josh Parnell has released the latest development update on his open-world space simulation and strategy game, Limit Theory.

Leaked BlackBerry ‘Venice’ photos show Android-powered QWERTY slider in the flesh

If there has been one thing missing from the Android smartphone market over the past few years, it’s a great device with a physical keyboard. In fact, ever since the T-Mobile G2 (HTC Desire Z) hit the market in 2010, there’s been nothing worth paying attention to.
