  • Singing About the Year of the Linux Desktop

    The first song I heard about the Linux Desktop was Hold On, It’s Coming, released in 1971 by Country Joe McDonald. This was an amazing prediction, considering that Linus Torvalds was only two years old at the time. Is it possible that young Linus heard this piece and it spurred him to create the GNU/Linux operating system? We may never know.

  • Container networking offers opportunity to simplify networks

    It's nearly impossible to go to any technology conference and not hear the words Docker containers at least once.

  • Android device manager app vuln leaves millions at risk of pwnage

    Flaws in a widely used Android device manager app leave users at risk of phone data hijacking and malicious code execution unless they update their smartphones, security researchers warn.

    Flaws in the AirDroid, a free device manager app which allows users to access their Android devices through their computers, leave an estimated 50 million users exposed to potential hacking unless they patch, Check Point warns.

    Attacks could take the form of something as simple as a booby-trapped SMS message or contact request. Once exploited, the security flaw would enables attackers to execute malicious code on a compromised device before siphoning off sensitive data or pulling off other hacker attacks.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
