Big Thank You to All

Filed under
Site News

Despite the economy and decreased traffic, I'd say the donation drive was a success. I saw a lot of familiar names of those who had given before as well as some new ones. Ad revenue was up as well.

After tallying up all the donations, we reached over 75% of average, which is real good because I lost a lot of visitors while I was sick last year. Although the number of donors was at its highest this year I believe. Tuxmachines received several very generous donations this year which was greatly appreciated. Most donations were in the smaller sums though and those certainly add up, so they were appeciated every bit as much.

Also, I know it's a lot to ask to display ads, especially Google ads these days, so thank you to all those that have done so and especially those who chose to start their shopping from one of my ads. Again, a big ole thank you.

And thank you just for visiting. Without visitors, there'd be no point to being here. So, thank you all for putting up with my donation drive. Thanks to all of you our 2013 drive was a success.

(And our Help Support TM link is always up there. We accept donations all year long.)

Ubuntu BQ Aquaris M10 Review – Part 1: Hardware

The mobile market today has practically been what former Microsoft-then-Nokia-then-Microsoft-again exec Stephen Elop loved to refer to as a two-horse race. Android and iOS have been butting heads quarter after quarter, year after year. Despite their popularity and ubiquity, neither is truly perfect and neither can really meet everyone's needs and preferences. Which leaves a little wiggle room for other platforms (that includes Windows 10) to try and fill in the gaps. This time around we are going to take a closer look at one the newer challengers, Ubuntu Touch, as it is embodied in the recent bq Aquaris M10 tablet. How does it fare against the bevy of Android, iOS, and even Windows tablets scattered throughout the market? And does it have what it takes to not only stand tall and proud but also to survive? Read on to find our verdict. Read more

Hands on: What's new and noteworthy with Android N

With Google's I/O developers' conference behind us, it's time to start looking forward to what's next in the world of Android. The most prominent thing is Google's rapidly approaching Android release, currently known only as Android "N." (The company has yet to reveal the full name or version number.) While the software itself isn't expected to arrive until sometime this summer, we're getting an increasingly clear picture of the fresh features and improvements it'll provide. Read more
