The Linux Foundation has issued a call for papers for Embedded Linux Conference Europe, which this year joins LinuxCon + CloudOpen in Dublin from Oct. 5-7.
Like last year, the Linux Foundation’s LinuxCon Europe show is being co-located with CloudOpen Europe and Embedded Linux Conference Europe, with a single registration. This year the show moves from Düsseldorf to Dublin where it will run at the Convention Centre Dublin from Oct. 5-7. Registration is open, as well, and if you register before July 11, you can save $300 or more. There’s no keynote list yet, but last year the event featured speakers including Linux creator Linus Torvalds, Jono Bacon (XPRIZE), and Joanna Rutkowska (Invisible Things Lab), among others.
Parrot revealed 13 new Linux-based mini-drones including new jumping and airborne models with headlights, an airborne cargo quadcopter, and a hydrofoil.
Parrot’s 13 new mini-drones expand upon last year’s similarly toy-like Rolling Spider and Jumping Sumo. The products are all selling for 199 Euros ($220) or less in France. By comparison, Parrot’s higher end AR.Drone 2.0 sells for $300, and its more advanced Bebop Drone goes for $500 and up. The new products will go on sale in the U.K. and perhaps globally in early July, according to the Engadget story that alerted us to the announcement.

Eurocom makes some of the beefiest, most bad ass notebooks around, and I wouldn’t blame you if you thought it was impossible for the company to produce something a bit more modest. Well, it can, and today we see an example of that with the M4 ultraportable notebook, one that happens to support Linux.
