  • An In-Depth Look at Text-to-Speech in Linux

    It’s been an interesting two weeks, talking about and looking into why text-to-speech (TTS) is such a mess in Linux. I’ve spoken with seventeen of you; seventeen who know a bit about software programming. “A bit” is a purposeful understatement. Some of you have forgotten more about software programming than I will ever know. That being the case, I have learned a bit about why TTS in Linux is next to worthless. For those who are just joining into the conversation, let me catch you up quickly.

If you're running stock software, head to the usual spot (Settings>About tablet>System updates) to check for yours.

  • Is Google bringing Android and Chrome OS together?

    The speculation about Google merging Chrome OS and Android has been a constant over the last few years. Why does Google have two separate systems when everyone else is merging? Why doesn’t Chrome just get folded into Android? Google has to kill one of them off. It’s odd that the tech world insists on Highlander rules – there can be only one. But the truth is that Google can bring them closer and closer together, and create a seamless experience for us, and it doesn’t need one to assimilate the other in order to do that.

  • Google just demolished Tim Cook's case against Android

    Last week, Google published its comeback. The company's "Android Security 2014 Year in Review" report shows that less than 1% of Android devices have any malware.
