Back in stock: a ThinkPenguin router that respects your freedom
This is the first home wifi router on the planet that you can go out and purchase that ships only with software that respects your freedom: libreCMC, a distribution of GNU/Linux recently endorsed by the FSF. This is awesome and you should replace your proprietary software-based wireless router at home with one of these! I've personally been using one at home for a few weeks now and I love it. I even made an unboxing video for you so you can see how simple it is to set-up.
Android projector offers 400 lumens on battery power
AAXA’s Android-based M4 is claimed as “the world’s brightest battery powered projector,” with 400 lumens running on battery power, or 800 lumens plugged-in.
AAXA Technologies offers a wide variety of projection systems, including a recent Android-based LED Pico Projector selling for $499. The LE Pico received a “Good” rating earlier this week from PCMag, which lauded the 550-lumen projector for its image quality, but dinged it for its poor video quality.
Calligra Gemini Added to Calligra Suite
About a year ago, the Calligra community added a new application to the suite by the name of Krita Gemini, which combined the functionality of the Krita digital painting application with the touch optimised user interface of the tablet focused Krita Sketch, into a shell with the ability to switch between the two at runtime. The goal was to create a responsive user interface for Krita, and this is now a part of Calligra. In May of this year, Intel approached the team which produced Krita Gemini with the idea of doing the same for other parts of Calligra, by creating an application which would encapsulate the Words and Stage components in the same way as Krita Gemini did for the Krita component.
The Great Paradox: On Windows 10 and Innovation
Talk about the paradoxes of life! I woke up today and saw this article mentioning "3 cool features" of Windows 10. Of course the are cool. But they are neither "new" nor "Windows features" at all.
The author and I agree on one point: With Windows 10, Windows is becoming more and more like Linux.
