Now here's a special Christmas present for all of you Linux enthusiasts out there, as Mandriva announced the availability of its portable USB Mandriva Flash Drive. It is based on the KDE4 Edition of the Mandriva Linux 2010 distribution (released on July 8th, 2010) and it's available as an 8GB USB flash drive.

Mandriva announced three days ago, on December 12th, that a new version of its portable USB Mandriva Flash Drive is now available for purchase.

Think of Mandriva Flash 2010 as your personal and private 3D mobile desktop, which empowers you to perform your daily computer tasks from anywhere.

Mandriva Flash 2010 offers a fully secure and protected environment that allows anyone to store their personal data on the same device. No software will be installed on the PC, because everything works off the USB flash drive!

So what's an open source advocate who wants to work with web applications to do? You turn to an open source alternative, of course. Let's take a look at three of them. Read more

Hackable voice-controlled speaker and IoT controller hits KS

SeedStudio’s hackable, $49 and up “ReSpeaker” speaker system runs OpenWrt on a Mediatek MT7688 and offers voice control over home appliances. The ReSpeaker went live on Kickstarter today and has already reached 95 percent of its $40,000 funding goal with 29 days remaining. The device is billed by SeedStudio as an “open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices.” While it can be used as an Internet media player or a voice-activated IoT hub — especially when integrated with Seeed’s Wio Link IoT board — it’s designed to be paired with individual devices. For example, the campaign’s video shows the ReSpeaker being tucked inside a teddy bear or toy robot, or attached to plant, enabling voice control and voice synthesis.
