Another thing that stood out to me is that KDE applications tend to be highly uniform in the way menu’s are arranged, and their internal logic. In Gnome-land, things tend to feel a little more erratic and chaotic. This may not be a significant issue, as most people tend to use a small set of applications, but it is worth mentioning.
To end this first view on a positive however, I am endlessly pleased that when using Empathy, the messages will pop up in a notifier window at the bottom of the screen, and you can respond to messages through the same window, rather than having to navigate to the chat window. This seems like such a simple thing, and yet if you use instant messaging heavily, it will make you wonder how you ever lived without it.
I've been in technology for more than twenty years. Along the way I've worked for and with many different women that have served in different roles. Some wrote or managed editorial content, while others were focused on the business side as marketing managers or vice presidents, and still others managed the back end and programming parts of the company.
They all had one thing in common though: THEY. JUST. DID. IT.
“Gigabit networks have the potential to change how we live, work, learn and interact on the web, much like the switch from dial-up to broadband did,” says Mark Surman, executive director of Mozilla. “The educators, developers, students and other inventive thinkers in these leading gigabit economies have a unique opportunity to help shape the web of the future, in ways that can help us all know more, do more and do better.”
On the contrary, fully 62.5 per cent of all Android devices are now running any of the three "Jelly Bean" iterations or "KitKat," the brand-new version of the OS that launched last Halloween.
Granted, the number of devices running the latter version is quite small, at just 1.8 per cent of the total. But that's typical of new Android releases. Back in September, Android 4.3 didn't even chart, and now it's at 8.9 per cent.
The figures show Android seemingly closing the gap with Apple as far as the number of customers who are running a modern version of the OS.
Have you noticed that a Chrome process always runs in the background when there are Chrome apps active, even if you do not have Chrome browser opened? Even though Chrome apps run like native apps they need the whole Chrome process to run in the background. Google is trying to change this and is working to make Chrome web apps API needs minimal.
The report comes from The Next Web, they have discovered an experimental project called app_shell which hints that Google has a project under wraps which is aiming to make Chrome apps run on only the required Chrome APIs and not need the complete Chrome process to run in the background. Apart from using less resources, this will enable developers to build truly cross platform Web apps that are faster than the native apps.
Canonical has just announced that Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS (Precise Pangolin) has been officially released for its Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products.
Ubuntu releases are always on time, but this latest version arrived with a small delay. That is of little importance because the distributions comes with a wealth of new features.
Now, Wozniak wants Apple to work with Google and make Android iPhones. He says,“We could compete very well. People like the precious looks of stylings and manufacturing that we do in our product compared to the other Android offerings. We could play in two arenas at the same time.”
Now, the company offers a new medical-focused Andromeda Reference Platform based on two new COMs running the first two SoCs called the DM816x SOM and DM814x SOM. Like the earlier modules, which have been used in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the two new Linux-based COMs are also available separately for volume runs, according to eInfochips Corporate Marketing Manager Dhaval Shah.
The new Andromeda platform is quite similar to the earlier models, said Shah. It combines the COM, a carrier card, an HD video capture and I/O card. There’s also a 7-inch touchscreen (see farther below).
