Axiomtek’s “PICO840″ Pico-ITX SBC features a quad- or dual-core Intel Atom, and offers multiple video ports, plus GbE, SATA, serial, USB, and Mini-PCIe I/O.
The PICO840 is a lower-powered, but more energy efficient alternative to the similarly Pico-ITX based PICO880 single board computer, which runs on a 4th Gen Intel Core processor. The 100 x 72mm PICO840 is said to support PoS systems, mobile medical monitors, compact panel PCs, and other embedded systems with tight space constraints. No OS support was mentioned, but we are confident the PICO840 runs Linux.
Among others, it helps the users learn the basic tasks on their Ubuntu Phone, gives information about Scopes and Web Apps, provides info about the Ubuntu Store and Settings and shows the users other useful information.
The latest version available is Ubuntu Help 0.1, which can be easily installed via the Ubuntu Touch App Store.
I didn't just buy Google's new Chromebook Pixel. No, I bought the high-end model with the 5th-generation, 2.4GHz Intel Core i7-5500U processor with 16GBs of memory and a 64GB Solid State Drive (SSD) for $1,299. And, I'm not the only one. That top-of-the-line Chromebook Pixel is sold out. Why would I spend this kind of money? Because the Pixel 2015 is worth it.
A long-standing dispute over proprietary software developers' use of licensed open source software code ultimately could be settled in a case against VMware. "[Developer Christoph] Hellwig sees his creation being used commercially," noted tech attorney Ray Van Dyke. "VMware feels persecuted for using a bit of free code. Now, a German jurist will make a decision sometime in the future."
The Samsung TV SDK Team has today released Samsung Tizen TV SDK 1.4. Downloads are available for Windows, Linux and also Mac OSX that will enable developers to begin developing for the Tizen TV platform. The tool set includes an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), a light-weight TV Simulator for testing web apps, and a TV Emulator.
The GLib2 library component used in the GNOME desktop environment has been updated recently in preparation for the final release of GNOME 3.16. Its code is now in freeze and no other major changes will be injected in the final GLib2 2.44.0 release. Prominent features include support for HTTP proxies in GIO, a new GTask:completed property, and proper support for multiple main contexts in GUnixMountMonitor.
A few weeks ago, during a little break from studies, I’ve finally found some time for installing Plasma 5 on my Arch Linux workstation. Before a not too deep period of usage I’d like to share with you my impressions on the current state of Plasma.
As the title says, I’m going to talk about the 5.2 version of Plasma so everything on this post will concern this version in particular.
A new VDC Research study projects that Linux and Android will continue to increase embedded market share through 2017 while Windows and commercial real-time operating systems (RTOSes) will lose ground. The study suggests that the fast growth of IoT is accelerating the move toward open source Linux.
"Open source, freely, and/or publicly available" Linux will grow from 56.2 percent share of embedded unit shipments in 2012 to 64.7 percent in 2017, according to VDC's "The Global Market for IoT and Embedded Operating Systems." That represents a CAGR of 16.7 percent for open Linux, says VDC.
Android 5.1 isn't one of those massive life-changing releases that'll have you tapping the 'look for updates' button frenetically for days on end; but nor is it one of those minor upgrades with only bug fixes and technical improvements. Here are the cool new features you're going to get with the new Android—once it eventually arrives on your phone.
Google is finally delivering a few perks that didn’t make the cut when it rolled out Android Lollipop.
Android 5.1 is here (at this time only for Nexus devices), and it tidies up Google’s operating system with some extra niceties that help you zip through various tasks. Here are the details as to what’s new and how it spruces up the overall utility and performance of Android.
Nordic ticket giant to develop open source on chips, tickets and beer.
Open source database technology company MariaDB has announced Nordic Transticket as its latest costumer.
Previously with Oracle-owned MySQL, the ticketing company, a rising rival to European Ticketmaster, reached a peak in user data with 150 Gigabytes.
Many problems in science and engineering are modeled through ordinary differential equations (ODEs). An ODE is an equation that contains a function of one independent variable and its derivatives. This means that practically any system that changes over time can be modeled with an ODE, from celestial mechanics to chemistry reaction rates to ecology and population modeling.
Twitch Indicator is, like its name suggests, a www.twitch.tv appindicator. In case you're not familiar with Twitch, this is a popular live streaming video platform that primarily focuses on video gaming.
The purpose of Twitch Indicator is to track the channels you follow and notify you when they go live. Besides notifications, which can be turned off from the indicator settings, the list of live channels is displayed in the indicator menu and clicking on any channel will open its Twitch page in your default web browser.
Rygel, an open-source home media solution that allows users to easily share all kinds of multimedia files to various UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) devices has been recently updated to version 0.25.3 as part of the GNOME 3.16 Release Candidate desktop environment.
Opera 29 Beta Brings Speed Dial and Open Tabs Sync, Custom Keyboard Shortcuts and More Mouse Gestures
Opera Software, through Helge Andre Gjølme, has announced earlier today, March 19, the immediate availability for download and testing of the Opera 29 Beta web browser for computers, supporting the GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
CodeWeavers, through Josh DuBois, had the pleasure of informing us today, March 19, about the immediate availability for download of the CrossOver 14.1.0 software update, a commercial application that allows users of the Linux and Mac OS X operating systems to install and use Windows apps.
I do enjoy looking over games more than, for example, networking tools. Sometimes console tools are intended for discrete applications and discrete audiences, and if I lack the experience needed to make them work, it can be a little frustrating.
Yesterday BioShock Infinite was finally released for Linux as the latest high-quality game being ported over from Windows. Judging from the comments, this is going to be one of the more popular Linux games for the time being. The good news is I've adapted the game for serving as our latest Linux gaming benchmark.
The PiPanther robot is a smart, fast vehicle that you control using the Ubotia app on your smartphone. As it explores rooms, you can set up battlefields anywhere and fight your friends using the Ubotia software. Plus you can customise the tank with your own attachments. But there’s just 15 minutes to go now [Ed: PiPanther’s Kickstarter clock is counting down] and we only have 22% [of €5,000/$5,900]. It’s not enough, unfortunately.
Dreaming Sarah has been available in an open Linux beta on Steam since December, but got a proper release last week. The game was made available DRM free for Linux on Desura and Itch.io yesterday and is currently on sale at a reduced price on Steam and Itch.io.
Today we take a look at 'In Exilium' that was recently released on Steam. It’s an interesting looking and simple hack and slash RPG.
Descent returns in Descent: Underground! With a big goal to hit, and tons of time left this could easily be funded.
Testing before the release, I was getting over 100FPS, and a patch just before release nerfed it down to 30FPS and below, but the great news is this patch is giving me a solid 60FPS, so while not the same as before, it is a solid and commendable improvement considering they can't replicate it their end.
Hey there Linux gamers, today we are happy to inform you that a new Crimson Bundle game sale is taking place these days and it includes no more than 10 awesome games for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Worlds of Magic is a good looking 4X strategy game that has been in early access for a while, but that ends now. The game has reached the point of a full release.
Android 5.1 Lollipop, which has already been rolled out over-the-air (OTA) to the Google Nexus 6 phablet, has reportedly started rolling out over-the-air to Google's 2013 flagship smartphone, the LG-made Nexus 5. The OTA rollout of the update does not come as a surprise, as Google has already provided a Android 5.1 Lollipop factory image for the LG-produced Android stock phone. The firm has also listed a new Android Lollipop image for Nexus 6 on its Google Developers page.
If there’s a better way for Amazon to celebrate its Android app store’s birthday than by offering a bunch of solid paid apps for free, we don’t know what it is. Beginning immediately and likely ending at some point in the near future, Amazon is offering a huge sale on paid Android apps. There are 34 apps in total, and they would normally combine to cost more than $100.
Android Auto has gone live, for devices running Android 5.0 and up, so long as users have a car stereo system that’s compatible with the in-car software. For now, that means a range of Pioneer headings, which are already available for sale in the U.S. and the U.K.
Google today updated its Android Device Manager service with support for Android Wear. In other words, you can now find your lost smartphone using your smartwatch.
It seems that Huawei is apparently unhappy with the amount of freedom they have to personalise the platform to cater to their own wishes and help differentiate their devices to those of their competitors. The whole User Interface (UI), apps and menus can not be changed or any additional features added to the OS like they can do with Android. The only thing they can do is add their own watch faces. That’s it!
Just about every time the tiresome Android vs. iOS debate rears its ugly head on the Internet, the argument is made that Android is better because developers have the freedom to do practically whatever they want. While there is definitely some truth to the notion that Android apps have capabilities iOS apps do not, it obviously doesn’t make Google’s mobile platform inherently better than Apple’s.
