If you are new to the world of Linux, you might not be knowing about online Ubuntu Linux demo website. If you are planning to make a switch to Linux, you can head over to this website and get familiar with Ubuntu Linux.
Ubuntu has a very ambitious goal with Ubuntu Touch. It proposed an operating system that could work equally on any capable device, a smartphone that can truly be your computer, no holds barred. That was the promise of Convergence, which we took for a spin with the Meizu PRO 5 smartphone and, before that, the bq Aquaris M10 tablet. The results back then where disappointing yet promising. Ubuntu Touch, as it was when we reviewed these devices, still lacked that punch that would make you truly go "wow!". But, unlike other operating systems, Ubuntu is fast evolving, and the latest OTA-12 brings much needed improvements to bring us closer to true Convergence.
Nobody ever said security was easy (other than just about every vendor at just about every expo) but claiming 'difficulty' as a reason not to bother is something of a first.
Yet that's precisely what Motorola appears to have done. When journalists asked at the launch of the Moto Z smartphone if it would commit to monthly Android OTA security updates, Motorola replied with a straight no.
One review of the device then went on to suggest, quite rightly, that this was not a good thing. Motorola responded with a statement that the "Moto Z and Moto Z Force will be supported with patches from Android Security Bulletins" which left the matter as clear as mud.
In a sign that the final version of Nougat is coming soon, one Nexus 6P user has apparently received a confidential Googlers-only OTA with an updated build of Android 7.0. While DP5 was NPD90G, this internal dogfood version is NRD90M…
That title may sound a bit “fanboyish”, but unfortunately, for Android Auto it is 100% true. You see, every Android manufacturer handles USB connections a bit differently. For example on my Nexus 6P, all I need to do is plug it in and it starts working perfectly fine with Android Auto. The same goes for the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. But when it comes to the LG G5, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it recognizes the device for a second, then acts like it isn’t plugged in. Every so often I have to change the USB mode on the LG G5, which isn’t a good user experience at all.
Microsoft Corp. is more that doubling an earlier job cut plan, part of Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella’s move to pare the company’s smartphone ambitions.
Some 2,850 positions worldwide will be eliminated in fiscal 2017, the company said Thursday in a regulatory filing. That’s in addition to 1,850 job cuts, primarily in the smartphone hardware business and sales, announced in May.
CORTANA IS taking over. The forthcoming Anniversary Update of Windows 10 has shown a new twist in Microsoft's 'do as we say' attitude towards customers.
It appears that the update, due for release on 2 August, just three days after the end of the free upgrade period for Windows 10, removes the ability to turn personal assistant bot Cortana off, reported PC World (not that one, the IDG one).
In all fairness, the upshot of this is fairly minimal. Cortana butts into your computing only if it's told to, and it's very easy for it not to.
However, the fact that it's always on means that it's always collecting metadata, and that might leave some people feeling a tad uncomfortable.
Microsoft is facing two more lawsuits over the company’s questionable Windows 10 upgrade tactics. Both suits are seeking class-action status.
The first suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Florida. It alleges that Microsoft’s Windows 10 upgrade prompts “violated laws governing unsolicited electronic advertisements,” as reported by The Seattle Times. The suit also says Microsoft’s tactics are against the Federal Trade Commission’s rules on deceptive and unfair practices.
The second suit was filed in June in Haifa, Israel alleging that Microsoft installed Windows 10 on users’ computers without consent. Microsoft already paid out a $10,000 award in a previous U.S. suit over similar circumstances.
Microsoft told the Seattle Times it believes the suits won’t succeed. The Times also reports that Microsoft said Windows 10 upgrades (the Times report called them “updates”) are a “choice, not a requirement.”
The story behind the story: That’s quite a disingenuous statement considering that Microsoft violated the known behavior of the Windows interface to essentially trick people into upgrading.
