Android
Ubuntu

The Ugoos UM3 is a small box that you can plug into your TV to run Android apps. But unlike most devices that fit that description, this one can also run Ubuntu Linux.

That means you could use it to stream videos from YouTube or Netflix, play music from Pandora or Spotify, or play Android games. Then you could reboot the device and switch operating systems to run full desktop apps including LibreOffice and Firefox.

Ugoos offers a larger model called the UT3S which sells for about $179. But the Ugoos UM3 costs about $50 less.

Watch Netflix outside the US, for nearly free (without paying for a tunnel)

Some services line Netflix have an annoying geolocation restriction that made them unavailable outside the United States. In case of Netflix, this is due to licensing issues. It's not a slim difference: do you want to be able to access just over one thousand movies, or would you prefer to have access to over thirteen thousand movies? Unfortunately, getting around the geolocation issue is not for everybody: it's based on the principle of browsing the Internet bouncing off an IP address (Internet address) located in the US (instead of using your own IP address, geolocated wherever you are). One common way of doing so is by using a tunnel: in short, you are creating a "virtual cable" to a host in the US, and are using that virtual cable to direct all of your Internet traffic. Using a tunnel, magically, you are located in the US as far as anybody else is concerned. The problem with tunnels is that they are expensive: the average price is around $5/month. That's nearly the cost of your whole Netflix subscription, just for the privilege of using Netflix in the first place! Well, there is another solution -- one that I consider much better. http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/articles/watch_netflix_outside_us_nearly_free_without_paying_tunnel

Wondering If HP Will Release Linux++ This Month

So far in 2015 we haven't heard much at all about The Machine... Besides that X.Org veteran Keith Packard left Intel to join HP where he's working on The Machine. Thus now being into June 2015, I'm wondering if this month we'll see the debut of Linux++, "Software that emulates the hardware design of The Machine and other tools will be released so that programmers can test their code against the new operating system. Linux++ is intended to ultimately be replaced by an operating system designed from scratch for The Machine, which HP calls Carbon," according to one of the earlier reports. Read more
