Wileyfox Spark hands-on: What an £89 Android phone looks like
Regardless, Wileyfox CEO Nick Muir describes the phones' price as "competitive," and it's hard to argue with the balance of hardware and software when you consider the base model Spark costs less than many accessories for rival handsets. Going forward, the firm clearly has big plans — Muir told us the company has shipped 250,000 units of its existing Swift and Storm models, and is aiming at the 2 million mark in the next 12 months. That includes not just the Spark devices, but future, higher-end offerings. Spark is "not indicative of Wileyfox's pricing direction," Muir told us, adding that higher-end models would follow in the next few months.
For the moment, Wileyfox finds itself with an augmented, product portfolio, but one still laser-focused on affordability.

Thanks to one of our regular readers who constantly monitored the development progress of the Linux Mint 18 operating systems, we've been informed that the final ISO images are now available for download for both Cinnamon and MATE editions.

An Everyday Linux User Review Of Peppermint OS 7 - Nice Ice Baby
I like to watch videos by the Linux Help Guy who has changed his Youtube channel to English Bob. He has always been an advocate for 2 distributions and they are Peppermint OS and Manjaro.
I have to say he is going to be over the moon when he tries this out for the first time.
It has been such an easy experience thus far and the theming is excellent. There isn't really all that much to review software wise but the way Peppermint integrates web applications with desktop applications is really nice.
I highly recommend this. One of the best distributions that I have reviewed recently.
