Thought i'd put a shout out for Tuxmachines on my blog, the feedback and interactivity i've had from the readers on this site is amazing.
FXI essentially built an ultra-lean computer inside a small USB stick. Stick it into any device that supports USB storage, and Cotton Candy will register as a USB drive. From there, you can run the Android OS in a secure environment inside your desktop, courtesy of a Windows/OSX/Linux-compatible virtualization client embedded in the device.
There is an old quote, "you don't need to know the information, just where to find it" and when it comes to your computer that is never more true than today. We have local apps, web apps, cloud data, websites information all over the place.
I've been an iPad user from Day one, however I'm starting to feel that while the Apple Tablet has a future and no one can argue that. I'm looking to migrate to an Android Device.
Turns out that there is an Open source version of Sonic the Hedgehog and its available on Linux.. (and Windows) I'm really now sure how this is available, if Sega Opened the code? However it's here and it plays quite well...
This post is more than a little inspired by a Lifehacker Post where they cover a similar idea.. Got me to thinking, What bag do i use, and what do i put in it for tech stuff when travelling. I'll state right now this drives my wife nuts. However I only take one pair of shoes and half the clothes she doesw ith me, so i guess it evens out..
It seems almost obligatory to do some form of App List and as such these are my personally most used Apps on my Android Mobile.

My 2nd desktop is largely reserved for video editing. As it often the issue with video editing, storage space is getting scarce. The sata hard drive has 320 GB, and it's getting full. Time to purchase a new hard disk drive...
Back in 2008 I wrote a blog post about the state of Internet TV at the time, which was fairly well received. nearly 4 years on its time to re-assess the state of Internet TV.
Since 2008 when Internet based TV was really just starting the landscape has really changed, gone in a large proportion of the examples I gave they were very much Windows focussed. However the device landscape itself has changed hugely since 2008. Mainly due to the iPad and Android platforms, what is available has become platform agnostic, which has made the whole concept of cutting the cable and going internet only far easier.
As a Linux user is this easier or harder than it was in 2008?
Took a little break tonight from compiling 64bit PCLinuxOS packages. I took a peek at ChromeOS in Virtualbox. Pretty much the Chrome browser with a login screen and additional settings. Wanna play with ChromeOS in Virtualbox then you can get a vanilla image from the link below.
That crazy puppy. He's such a nutball. Tonight he caught some kind of big *ss bug that started squawking when Fred chomped down on it and he ran all around the yard to try and get away from it. But it was in his mouth. It took him about 3 laps to figure it out. lol It was hilarious.
I have this puppy and I discovered a couple of weeks ago that he is terrified of WD-40. Then I forgot his intense fear and used it again this evening. So, weird. Why would a little puppy be so scared of WD-40?
I just got my first traffic ticket in years and years. It's been so long that I can't even remember.
Linux was an exciting journey till now. I used Ubuntu Hardy from its inception till the start of New year 2011. The "learning" part was not so great, as i later understood it, and assumed that it was meant for closing the windows and opening the door towards Linux-ification of the world. After pursuit of (slightly) bigger adventures, now I am high and dry.
Not to be taken too seriously/technically, this post tries to make a common man understand what the names resemble.

Windows is like a bucket half filled with water. The bucket is some micro-particles-containing soft material. Initially, you are sorta content...
Linux is like an ocean. Water keeps coming from the rivers, and there are a lot of rivers around. There is much to see if you want to, while...
Well, it's not been my month for hardware. Or rather, had I fixed it right the first time...
Well, folks, she died on me. That failing hard drive finally gave up the ghost, so things will be a bit slow around Tuxmachines today.
The last day of this year in Southern Oregon is sunny, clear, and cold. Sitting here and basking in the morning sun streaming through the window mitigates my foul mood regarding the state of printers.
My name is Justin Breithaupt the maker of JULinux...
After reading an article recently on a similar topic, I got to thinking about what I was introduced to relating to computers when I was in school.
I was in high school when I got my first real introduction to computers.
