Some of its biggest selling points include 4K and NVIDIA Grid support. If you love gaming, have a powerful rig with a robust NVIDIA GPU, and want to enjoy one of the best in class Android TV experiences, then the NVIDIA Shield Android TV is a sure bet. If you’re more of a casual gamer, then there are less expensive options, but if you want to have something that packs a wallop, streams your games, and is quite future proof, then we highly recommend it. Further, we’ve given it our highly coveted Editor’s Choice Award for being a rock solid Android TV device!
Once again, consumers in the market for a new Android phone have tough decisions to make. While hardcore Android purists will understandably opt for the Nexus 6 to get fast updates and greater tinker capabilities, the Galaxy S6 is the better choice for all others. It is a more well-rounded experience.
Samsung has crafted a phone that is not only a piece of art, but is a comfortable size and has superior security with biometrics. The fingerprint reader is more important than having the ability to run custom ROMS. In 2015, there is no excuse for any flagship smartphone to ship without a fingerprint scanner.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is Android at its finest. Highly recommended.

And where there is a hot new technology, there are of course hot startups.
David Airlie landed some of the OpenGL 4.x code he's been playing with for AMD's RadeonSI Gallium3D driver on the HD 7000 series GPUs and newer.
As I have mentioned in earlier blog entries, Kolab Enteprise has gained data loss prevention (DLP) functionality this year that goes above and beyond what one tends to find in other groupware products. Kolab's DLP is not just a back-up system that copies mails and other objects to disk for later restore, it actually creates a history of every groupware object in real-time that can later be examined and restored from. This will eventually lead to some very interesting business intelligent features.
SparkyLinux 4.0 is new release of this Debian based operating system, it is created on the testing branch of Debian and comes with multiple desktop environments.

This year's Red Hat Summit brought together the company's executives, customers and partners from June 23 to 26 to discuss technology trends and product innovation. A key theme this year was Docker container technology, with Red Hat announcing its Atomic Enterprise Platform and the OpenShift Enterprise 3 platform. Atomic Enterprise brings an enterprise-grade supported host platform for the deployment and orchestration for Docker containers, while OpenShift is a platform-as-a-service offering targeting developers building, managing and deploying containers. At the conference, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst emphasized that open-source technology's value isn't just about licensed code, but about collaboration and communities. No Red Hat Summit event would be complete without at least one session on the roadmap for the core Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) platform, and the 2015 event was no exception. The next major update for the platform, RHEL 7.2, will include new performance capabilities for virtualization, security and networking. Here's a look at highlights from the event.
Many Samsung customers still struggle to bring their businesses to the mobility space, according to Robin Bienfait, chief executive innovation officer for Samsung Business Services.
“Leveraging the platform that Red Hat offers will allow us to bring that back end to the end user in the mobility domain,” she told theCUBE cohost Stu Miniman during Red Hat Summit 2015.
In recent weeks Aewin, ASRock, BCM, BioStar, ECS, and MSI have collectively announced a dozen Braswell based Mini-ITX boards that are all able to run Linux.
We reported a couple of weeks ago that the second maintenance of ownCloud Desktop Client 1.8 was out and work has started on the next point release, ownCloud Desktop Client 1.8.3, which was unveiled recently for Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Telegram Desktop is an open-source and cross-platform Telegram client for Linux. The client has support for notifications, sending messages and media files, and inserting emoji.
As you may know, Phototonic is an image viewer and organizer for Linux systems, created in Qt and C++.
KDE touchpad configuration module supports both Libinput touchpad driver and Synaptics driver. Newer versions of distros like Fedora 22 comes with both libinput and synaptics drivers installed, where libinput driver is chosen by default for touchpads. Some users wanted to use synaptics driver and tweak all options exported by it using the touchpad KDE control module. To do so, simply uninstall the libinput driver (xorg-x11-drv-libinput) and touchpad kcm uses synaptics driver which makes all the kcm options tweak-able. Some of those users reported that after uninstalling libinput driver but keeping synaptics driver (xorg-x11-drv-synaptics), touchpad KCM displayed the error message “No touchpad found” and no options were editable as reported in this bug.
VoidExpanse is a good looking and fun space RPG game from AtomicTorch Studio. It has recently been through some major updates, and they finally sorted a proper Linux structure for their data files.
Oil Enterprise is a business simulation that has been available in steam Early Access for about a month and it has been available for Linux from day-1.
In the game you have to manage an oil company in all aspects from prospecting, refining and selling the oil. The game is split into three different layers: Oil field, world map and headquarters.
Distance is a beautiful neon survival racer that I finally had a chance to play, and what I found really did surprise me.
It seems that someone at Google decided that it’d just be more work than it’s worth to come up with a more pragmatic solution, so it used an emoticon instead to say¯\_(ツ)_/¯ And how many people actually use more than 100 tabs, in a mobile browser no less? Only psychopaths, probably.
As usual, the Linux 4.2 kernel is bringing more improvements for ARM, including support for new SoCs and boards.
Highlights for the ARM Linux 4.2 merge window include:
- SMP support for the Allwinner A23 SoC with the SunXI code and SMP support for the Broadcom BCM63138.
- Big endian support in Socpga.
- Initial support for the Freescale I.MX7D. The dual-core i.MX7 has two Cortex-A7 cores up to 1.0GHz, Cortex-M4 up to 256MHz, LPDDR2/LPDDR3 support, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and one PCI Express lane. The i.MX7 series is primarily aimed at "Internet of Things" devices.
- Initial support for the ZTE ZX296702 SoC with dual-core Cortex-A9 processor and ARM Mali 400 graphics.
- NVIDIA Tegra HDA support.
It’s not really a surprise, but after just over six months since the “forking” of both Node.js and Docker, the two different projects have ended up back in some sort of alignment. For Node.js, it was the reunification with io.js under the Node.js Foundation, which was officially launched under the Linux Foundation’s umbrella. The Node.js and io.js technical development is now driven by a technical committee and hopefully this will all work out well for all.
For those using the Global File System 2 (GFS2) for Linux clusters, the Linux 4.2 kernel is slated to offer better performance.
Among other interesting parts of the open source project - which has been released under the Creative Commons license for non-commercial use and can be downloaded over at Felfil.com - is that the design team has incorporated a number of commonly found objects into their final design. Among others include a bicycle chain and a windshield wiper motor. The decision to use these found parts certainly falls in line with the team’s dedication towards “giving new life to unused components”.
illume OS is a free and open source Debian based Linux distribution that is especially designed to run on note books, laptops and computers for students. It is very efficient, lightweight, stable and flexible Linux operating system that supports both 32 and 64 bit hardware platforms and ISO images and Live DVDs are available in both architectures. Its latest version 2.1.2 has been released now and we are going to discuss the introduced features and its install method in this article.
Canonical's Cemil Azizoglu sent in his regular report to inform us all about the new features that were implemented in the third maintenance of Mir 0.13, the next-generation display server for the Ubuntu Linux operating system.
