Canonical Outs Live Patch Kernel Update for Ubuntu 16.04 to Patch Security Flaws
Just one day after announcing the availability of new kernel versions for all of its supported Ubuntu Linux operating systems, Canonical published a new kernel live patch security notice for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus).
Asus has already released a few devices under the Zenfone 3 name. These include, among others, the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, Zenfone 3 Ultra, and Zenfone 3 Max. But apparently, the company is not done yet, as a new device under the name of Zenfone 3 Zoom has recently been certified by TENAA – the Chinese equivalent of the FCC.
We often, and quite rightly, complain about the way device makers customize the "stock" build of Android to suit their own needs. Customizing software is not inherently bad, but Samsung, LG, and others are usually doing it to push their apps and services. These companies frequently make unnecessary aesthetic changes for the sake of being different.
You don't have to put up with the look and feel of Android on your phone, though. You can customize things to better suit your own style and usage patterns—all it takes is a little legwork. The more time you want to spend on it, the more extensive the customization can be. It all starts with the right tools.
