  • PlayStation 4 capable of booting Linux due to the latest hack

    This is not the first time that fail0verflow announced it had successfully hacked Sony’s PlayStation 4 to run Linux, and even showcased to the public that the team was running Pokémon. After months of testing, the team has said that the console is successfully able to run Linux, but what does this mean for the future gaming titles. Does this mean that Sony’s PlayStation 4 will be open to run pirated copies of future games? The hacking group has not stated this, but has shown us on how we too can run Linux on our consoles.

  • Radeon Crimson 16.3 Released With Vulkan, But No Sign Yet For Linux

    Today AMD released the Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.3 driver (formerly known as Catalyst), but sadly the Linux driver update is not in tandem with this new driver update which now provides official Vulkan support.

    When hearing that Radeon Software Crimson 16.3 brings official Vulkan support over their earlier Windows beta, I was excited and hoping the Linux release would join in. The release notes also mention some performance improvements with this Crimson 16.3 driver and other enhancements to complement the Vulkan mainline API support.

  • Tails 2.2 Comes with Onion Circuits Instead of Vidalia

    Have you ever wondered how to access the internet anonymously or protecting your privacy against internet surveillance! without the effort of setting up a VPN and relay connections. Tails Linux distribution is a quite good choice for you.

    During your regular usage to the internet, you regularly send application tracking reports, search engine queries, browsing history, your location based on the current IP address, ..etc. All these kind of information could be used to invade your privacy. So, you could use an applications called “Tor” to connect you through multiple virtual tunnels and relays to hide your identity and your location. This seems pretty good, but what if you don’t want to bother with setting up Tor in your current Linux distribution, you could simply use a live session of Tails directly from a USB, DVD, and SD card.

  • Raspberry Pi 3

    Four years ago (last leap day to be specific), the first Raspberry Pi was released. And on February 29, 2016, the third version made its debut.

    In its short lifespan, the Pi has broken records to become the best-selling British computer. With more than eight million units in circulation, it has eclipsed the sales records set by Sinclair, Amstrad and Acorn. Back in the 1980s, those companies were at the forefront of the "microcomputer revolution".
