Reddit: Efficiently share music collection with an Android smartphone?

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 10:22am

Greetings reddit! I have a large music collection in mp3 format and want to play that collection on my Android smartphone. Since the collection is too large to fit on the phone's internal storage, I need some nice technique to share that music. I want to be able to select songs, copy them to my smartphone and then listen to these songs on-the-go. This would be doable using file sharing, but that is kind of unergonomic. Is there a better solution? Something like DLNA sharing, but with better offline support? Thanks for any answers!

TuxMachines: GNOME 3.12: Pixel perfect ... but homeless

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 8:10am

Review When the GNOME 3.x desktop arrived it was, frankly, unusable. It wasn't so much the radical departure from past desktop environments, as the fact that essential things did not work properly or, more frustratingly, had been deemed unnecessary.

Fast-forward three years and while GNOME 3.12 – released Wednesday – still isn't the infinitely customisable experience of GNOME 2.x, not only has the GNOME Shell progressed by leaps and bounds but it now makes for a stable, productive desktop environment.

One of the great things about releasing early and often is that eventually things improve; sometimes things improve so slowly you hardly notice it until a release like GNOME 3.12 rolls around, but they improve nonetheless.

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 7:46am

Red Hat did this because it believes there are three very different ways that 70 to 80 percent people tend to use Red Hat Linux distros. Businesses that want a lot of support and device and staff certification pay for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Fedora is for users, often developers who use the latest and greatest Linux and open-source software and want to be ahead of the curve.

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 6:24am

I'm running linux 12.10 and my ipod has worked for the year+ that i've been running linux until 2 days ago. The ipod screen is showing the "connected" screen meaning something is happening but nothing shows up on the lap top. just curious if there's anything i can do without factory reseting the ipod.

Thanks in advanced!
