OnePlus 2: A Big Android Phone for Relatively Little Money

The new model looks to be an improvement over its predecessor in nearly every way. “We started this company because we didn’t think any Android phones on the market were good enough,” OnePlus director and co-founder Carl Pei said. “We still think that’s the case, and we learned a lot from the OnePlus 1. The OnePlus 2 not only flagship worthy, but something that will remain cutting edge next year as well.” Read more

Mozilla and Linux

  • How is Firefox OS Different from Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Ubuntu Touch
    firefox-os-phone-firefox-os-phone-While choosing a new mobile phone to buy, you must consider all different available options. Earlier I’ve written about the differences between Ubuntu Touch, Android OS, and Windows Phone. Today I’m going to add another contender in the list – the Firefox OS – and I’ll discuss how is Firefox OS different from others.
  • Firefox 42 Nightly Is Now Built In GTK+3
    Firefox Nightly for Linux has been compiled with GTK+3 and the stable version of Firefox 42 may be the first one to be released with GTK+3.
  • Mozilla Toys with Crowdsourcing Ideas for its Browser and Tools
    Can your ideas make one of the most popular Internet browsers better? Mozilla is considering the possibility. The company is launching a testing initiative next month that will let Firefox users try out possible changes to the browser.

KDE and Akademy

  • KWallet5 can be auto-unlocked during login again
    I've just pushed a patch to KWallet5 allowing you to have your wallet unlocked automagically during login. This patch was originally done by Alex Fiestas for KWallet4, so all credits and free beers go to him; I've merely just forward-ported it.
  • Major update in cauldron
    Now that cauldron is open, the kde team has updated KF5 to 5.12.0, Plasma to 5.3.2 and Kde Applications to 15.04.3.
  • KDE's Plasma Mobile Not Giving Proper Credit to Ubuntu Touch, Says Developer
    KDE developers have announced that they are working on a new project called Plasma Mobile. From what the developers are saying, it's running on Wayland, and it's capable on running Ubuntu apps. One of the problems is that at least one of the Ubuntu developers has noticed that even if the project is based on Ubuntu for phones, credit is not given.
  • Plasma Mobile SDK
    When approaching this issue I had been thinking about the issue for a while. I had mainly 2 problems: I was rather frustrated with previous Linux-based systems so far and the one I liked didn’t really scale for us.
  • KDE Applications Versioning
    A common problem for many applications contained in the KDE Applications releases are non-incremented version numbers. Often the maintainer forgets to update the version number of the application, like I did it for Kate since the first KF5 based release.
  • Licensing of KDE Code
    Akademy, the yearly KDE conference is alive and kicking. During the last days we were discussing again about potential KDE licensing issues (for instance code that is licensed under GPLv2, but not GPLv3). That’s why KDE is maintaining a relicense checker script, that every KDE contributor should enter herself/himself.
  • Akademy Day 1
  • Akademy Day 2
    The second day at Akademy started off with 10 or so hours of sleep!, which was much needed for basic functions (really happy I don’t have to drive here). The hotel (Rialta) had great breakfast with coffee, OJ, bread with meat and cheeses, yogurt, cereal all the basics that makeup a great day!
