Weighing in at just over a pound, the Aquaris M10 isn’t an unwieldy tablet, but it doesn’t strike us as lightweight either. It’s definitely a two-hand device, considering the acreage of its 10.1-inch display. Trying to use it with one hand is a sure way to induce wrist cramps and other discomfort.
The Aquaris M10 has a glossy display, while the rear of the device bears a matte finish, allowing for both an improved grip and a more flattering appearance. The device is painted black for the full HD version, while the standard HD version has a bleach white finish. If you were hoping for a higher resolution and the snow-coated exterior, you’ll be hopelessly out of luck.
While working at Dell Inc. in the 2011 I met some Linux enthusiasts that introduced me to Ubuntu. I have heard about SUSE, Debian and Red Hat before but they were never promoted as real alternatives to Windows and OS X. But Ubuntu changed my mindset toward Linux so I decided to give it a try. At the beginning I felt it was too hard to understand so I went back and forth between Ubuntu and Windows until I got used to Ubuntu. My first barrier was the fact that on Windows everything was fixed by installing a software that will do everything for you and on Linux it was all about the Terminal. But once you realize that you don't need to deal with malware and slow performance anymore you simply don't look back at Windows.
A tiny open source “MiQi” SBC that runs Linux or Android on a Rockchip RK3288, with HDMI, GbE, four USB ports, and expansion headers has launched on Indiegogo.
A Shenzhen startup led by Benn Huang called MQMaker launched an Indiegogo campaign for a MiQi hacker board. The MiQi is available in packages starting at $35 (1GB RAM, 8GB eMMC) and $69 (2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC). Last September, the company successfully launched an open spec, OpenWrt Linux-based WiTi router board, now available for $69.
