  • Ubuntu Linux tablet will turn into a makeshift desktop

    Want to use your mobile device as a desktop, but would rather not go the Windows route? BQ might have just what you're looking for. The Spanish device maker is teasing the launch of an Ubuntu-based tablet that touts Convergence, a feature that turns your mobile Ubuntu gear into makeshift PCs. If you can scrounge up an external display, mouse and keyboard, you'll have your own little Linux workstation.

  • Startup Promises Two Ubuntu-Powered Tablets For Preorder Starting At $350 Soon

    2016 could be a big year for Ubuntu tablets, as the startup MJ Technology LLC has plans to release not one but two tablets running full versions of the operating system.

  • An Ubuntu Convergence Tablet Is Expected To Be Shown Off Next Month

    This isn't a huge surprise as Canonical has participated in Mobile World Congress (MWC) the past few years and they've used it to showcase their mobile wares in the past. This tablet is said to be running a preliminary version of Ubuntu 16.04 "Xenial Xerus", which isn't much of a surprise either since it's the current Ubuntu development cycle and will be a Long Term Support release.

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
