Filed under

From high atop the lofty tower of their new (but still secret) location in Chicago, Kevin Hill and Jeff Gerhardt announced today the long awaited return of THE LINUX SHOW.

The Linux Show, or TLS to its listener's, broadcasted weekly episodes of The Linux Show!! from September 1997 until December 31st 2004. Kevin and Jeff were also a regular fixture at events like Linuxworld Conference and Expo, and ISPCON.

We were very surprised to find out that just because you create a broadcasting entity and report news and opinion; that the First Amendment really only protects you from the Federal Government."

Currently, Google’s in-car play is limited to Android Auto, which does maps, music, texts, calls, and voice searches. But when Google shows off the latest version of its mobile OS – Android “M” – part of that announcement is reportedly a car-specific build designed that could control everything from the stereo to the climate control and more.
