anarchic-order.blogspot: You know that Linux kernel thing, that has thousands of developers from all over the world, some of which do it professionally, most of which do it for the love of solving problems (or something)? I look at it as a great chance for learning.

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. Read more

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.

SDN in action: Hands-on with Cumulus Linux

The stage is set for SDN (software-defined networking) to change the way we push data through our infrastructures, with the promises of more agile network provisioning and management, as well as more affordable network hardware. But for many, the SDN concept is still amorphous. What does SDN look like in practice? To shed light on this question, I sat down with a few Dell Networking S6000 switches running Cumulus Linux 2.3. There are many approaches to an SDN solution, but one of the most significant is the advent of white-box switches and à la carte switch firmware. This is the essence of the solution offered by Cumulus Networks. Read more
