Intel Core i5 6600K Skylake Linux CPU Benchmarks

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

Earlier this week I began my Intel Skylake Linux benchmarking by posting some initial results from the HD Graphics 530, the new Intel "Gen9" graphics. While more Intel Linux HD Graphics 530 results are on the way, completed for this weekend are the initial CPU benchmark results comparing the Core i5 6600K to various other Intel Haswell/Broadwell processors as well as some AMD APUs and CPUs.

Filed under
Ubuntu

Wubi was a tool made by Canonical that acted as an Ubuntu installed for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, allowing users to install Ubuntu alongside those OSes. It's been deprecated for two years, but it somehow "mysteriously" survived on the installation media until now.

Ubuntu 16.04 Stupendously Hot Concept Is About to Become Real

Filed under
Ubuntu

We wrote just a few days ago about a Ubuntu 16.04 Stupendously Hot Charmander concept and a lot of people liked it. Because it's the work of someone from the community, it's unlikely that it will be become more than just that, a concept, but it seems to have taken a life of its own.

Rumor: Android Pay To Arrive August 26th

Filed under
Android

When Google introduced Android Pay back at Google IO 2015 this year at the end of May, it displayed that Google would be taking the mobile payments solutions seriously, but at the time they didn’t give a hard date for a launch of the service. Alongside that, since there has been no confirmed launch date for Android Pay by Google, it means there is no confirmed date for when users can expect to see the app available to download to their devices. A new rumor circulating the internet over this weekend claims that Android Pay will be launching on August 26th, that’s this Wednesday.

Filed under

In the announcement, Huawei also boasted that the Honor 7i had a fingerprint sensor. However, unlike smartphones from other brands, the Honor handset's sensor is neither located in front or at the back, but on its side.

In the report, the sensor can be easily reached by the thumb and can be used to take camera shots on the go. Like other fingerprint scanners, this sensor also enables the user to unlock the phone from sleep. Hopefully, there are more features and functions for this fingerprint sensor.

Nokia Android Phone News, Rumors: Finnish Brand Will Rise from Ashes Once It Embraces Android Platform

Filed under
Android

Nokia may technically be non-existent in the mobile market right now as far as new devices are concerned. However, the Finnish manufacturer may already be looking for potential partner companies to help it make a comeback next year.

Based on the buyout deal between Microsoft and Nokia last year, Nokia may not be able to manufacture any mobile devices during that time as part of a non-compete agreement.

Linuxcon North America 2015: Linus Keeps it Real

Filed under
Linux

The annual Linuxcon North America conference was once again highlighted by none other than Linux creator Linux Torvalds. Torvalds was not on the original scheduled for the event, rather he filled a slot originally identified as 'surprise guest."

Rather than the typical Linux kernel panel keynote where Torvalds has typically participated, Torvalds did a one on one question and answer ten minute session with Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin. It's a format that seemed to suit Torvalds well, though the questions ranged from the mildly technical to the personal.

Why do you use Linux?

Filed under
Linux

In the early 2000’s I had repurposed an older PC by installing an early version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and enabling it as a file server, hosting both NFS and SMB. The computer ran well and gave me almost zero issues once it was fully configured. It ran 24/7 and unless we experienced power outages, it was never turned off. It is important to highlight that the system, upon boot, would only load in runlevel 3. In Red Hat speak, this equates to CLI only with networking support; that is, no GUI.
