amoroK LiveCD

"there's a party in the CD"

"amaroK Live is a stripped down LiveCD (based on PCLinuxOS) with a fully functional amaroK music player bundled with the tracks commissioned last year by Wired Magazine, which are distributed under the Creative Commons Sampling Licenses. It includes - among other major artists - tracks by the Beastie Boys and David Byrne."

"Well, after 35 iso images, amaroK LiveCD version 1.2.1 looks done. I am doing some final testing but I should be able to get it distributed tomorrow. This has been quite an interesting project for me, mostly because it is the first contribution other than bug reporting and documentation I have made to an OSS project. I am not a coder, so the most I can usually contribute is bug testing, money and encouragement (complaints). I learned a lot, made some friends and had a lot of fun." Read more of this blog here.

Texstar is quoted as saying, "I think it's great that someone could take pclos as a base
and build a new livecd."

Android 6.0 up close: Google Now on Tap is almost amazing

Can you believe it? After months of waiting and anticipation, Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow release is finally on its way into the world. I'll have a detailed overview of what's different with Marshmallow and why it all matters for regular users soon. First, I wanted to take an up-close look at one of Android 6.0's most interesting features: Google Now on Tap. As I mused when Google gave us our first glimpse at Now on Tap this summer, this feature really seems like the future of Android -- like something that has the potential to change the way we interact with our mobile devices.
