Android Device Manager is a nifty tool that will help you find your lost or stolen Android phone. A good example why every Android user should use ADM was made crystal clear by a post on Reddit. Written by a female Android owner, the post details how she lost and recovered her phone quickly, thanks to the ADM feature. The Reddit poster had her Nexus 6P deftly lifted out of her pocket while she was riding on a bus.

That means that the thief had access to her bank account, social security number and other personal information.

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer
GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices.
Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors.
And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
