  • Ubuntu Touch Still Has the Best and Most Complete App Permissions

    App permissions is a feature that's now present in pretty much all the major mobile operating systems, but Ubuntu has the best implementation available right now.

Some developers are now working to provide much better Pebble support, in the absence of any kind of official support.

Now it looks like one of those applications could be the Dolphin emulator, which lets you play Nintendo GameCube and Wii games on a computer or other supported devices. Read more
