If you're an Android user seeking the absolute best experience for your device, you might be inclined to toy around with your home screen. Why? Because there could be aspects of the default you find inefficient or that don't offer you enough power and control. If you want more from your Android device, you're in luck... even on the home screen front. The Google Play Store offers a number of solid home screen replacements, each offering a different approach and in some cases, a wildly different feature set.
‘Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund’ (German Federal Pension Insurance) the largest of the country’s 16 pension insurers, is increasing its use of open source solutions. The fund uses Linux servers and Apache solutions on its x86 and mainframe computers. The pension insurer last week published a call for tender, seeking assistance for its Linux and Apache-based services and for other open source solutions it has in use.
Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) makes massive strides in polishing the dull sheen left behind by Android 5.0 (Lollipop). In fact, Marshmallow is the best incarnation of Android yet.
Here's a look at what Marshmallow has to offer. We'll update this guide as new information about Marshmallow becomes available.
Avalue unveiled 5.25- and 3.5-inch SBCs, plus a COM Express Type 6 Basic module, based on Intel’s 6th Generation “Skylake” Core processors.
Avalue’s 5.25-inch EBM-SKLU SBC, 3.5-inch ECM-SKLH SBC, and ESM-SKLH COM Express Type 6 Basic module continue the gradual shift among embedded vendors to Intel’s latest 14nm Skylake platform. So far we’ve mostly seen COM Express modules, which is typical for new Intel chip releases, but there have also been a smattering of Mini-ITX SBCs, and even an Advantech 3.5-inch SBC called the MIO-5272. The EBM-SKLU, however, is the first 6th Generation Core SBC we’ve seen with the legacy 5.25-inch format.
The Windows vs Linux fight has been going on ever since Linus Torvalds build the first version in collaboration with the University of Helsinki in October 1991. And every time, Microsoft launches a Windows version this question gets shriller. The same has happened now when Microsoft released the latest Windows 10 operating system.
One of Google’s latest slogans created to showcase the essence of Android in a nutshell spells: “Be together, not the same.” It is both a testament to the company’s general embracement of diversity and arguably one of the most precise ways to describe the OS as a whole. Fans, however, have long had trouble trying to identify the ‘ultimate’ Android device, despite the sea of devices whose supposed heterogeneity should guarantee a perfect match for everyone.
In an endless fight among the various OEMs to come out at the top of the critics’ — as well as the fans’ — rankings, one trend has notoriously stood out. People love Android devices because of the software (specifically its flexibility), and in spite of the countless efforts made by manufacturers to tweak and enhance the OS in order to make it better, the pure, unadulterated experience offered by Google has long been preferred by virtually every enthusiast.
This year at CES we got to see wacky ideas about the Internet of Things, like Samsung's new refrigerator with a gigantic touchscreen, so there's a lot to be desired in the wild new era of smart-objects. That's why this elegant mirror from Google software engineer Max Braun is so exciting — it looks like something you'd actually want in your home right now.
Braun posted the results of his project on Medium, and the photos look almost unreal. It shares the same information you can glance at on an Android phone — the weather, the time, and a glance at the top headlines — but somehow it makes even more sense on a bathroom mirror. It's the kind of sleek near-future sci-fi of Ex Machina and Gorilla Glass concept videos, where every translucent surface in your world seamlessly springs to life with information from the cloud.
We don’t yet know much about Android N (after all, we’re still a few months away from the next I/O) but we do know that Google works quite closely with several major OEMs to ensure that the OEMs can get the update incorporated into their own devices as fast as they possibly can.
Tails—an acronym for The Amnesic Incognito Live System—first rose to notoriety in 2013 as the Linux distribution used by U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden. Since the debut of Tails 1.0 on April 29, 2014, there haven't been any major new releases of the Linux distribution—until Jan. 26, when Tails 2.0 debuted. Tails is a desktop Linux distribution whose goal is to help users stay private on the Internet, by way of multiple tools, including the use of Tor, The Onion Router network. With Tails 2.0, the big change comes by way of rebasing the distribution on the Debian 8.0 (code-named Jessie) Linux operating system, which provides new software packages. Users also will immediately notice that Tails 2.0 now makes use of the GNOME Shell desktop user interface, providing both a top-down menu and an activities window for desktop navigation. While Tails 2.0 boasts a new look, it is also now losing one of its past capabilities, which is the ability to look like a Windows desktop in what is known as Windows Camouflage mode. In this slide show, eWEEK examines key features of the Tails 2.0 release.
Linux enthusiasts rejoice: Super-thin "Project Sputnik" XPS 13 laptops from Dell with Ubuntu and Intel Skylake chips should be just around the corner.
Dell's Project Sputnik laptops have attained something of a cult status with a segment of Linux users since their introduction in 2012. The XPS 13 Developer Edition will be the only dedicated, thin-and-light Linux laptop with Skylake from the top-five PC makers.
