Hardware compatibility, ease of use, the size of a software repository. These three attributes are unique to each Linux distribution. But at the same time, each Linux distribution is at liberty to take and mix whatever it wants from any other.
This creates a rather unique situation, where good ideas quickly spread, and bad ones fail. And as a result, there are dozens of distribution updates each month, hundreds each year, in a race to leap-frog each other in the race to the top of the DistroWatch.com charts.
This is why the answer to the question of which distribution is best for you changes with [...]
Another day, another beta. Adobe’s latest beta release of its desktop Flash Player — that’s version 11 — is now available for your downloading pleasure. This particular build brings with it Stage3D APIs, for “advanced” 2D and 3D rendering, 64-bit support, H.264 encoding, and 7.1 surround sound. We’re just hoping number 11 won’t bring all the flaws and subsequent fixes that have plagued previous versions. For more details, and to download the the latest beta, click the source link below.

Another Google+ tip. Chrome extension, to be precise. You can now add a small notification checker extension in Google Chrome which displays your new notifications number and will take you to Google+.
Not just this. This extension now also supports desktop notifications and sound. Google+ Notification Checker is a very simple Chrome extension that displays the number of unread notifications in Google+.

Microsoft’s $8.5 billion acquisition of Skype hasn’t closed yet, but it looks like Redmond is already working behind the scenes to make the service even more ubiquitous. According to some anonymous sources interviewed by TechCrunch, Facebook is going to introduce video chat next week, and that service will be powered by none other than Skype. And while the service will be browser-based, it’s also said to include a desktop component. We’d say none of that sounds too fantastical — video calls would be a logical extension of Facebook chat, and let’s not [...]
Many of us are perfectly content viewing only 2D content on our mobile devices, but if you’ve been dying to add a bit more depth to your smartphone’s display, Global Wave may have just what you’re looking for. At the 3D and Virtual Reality Expo in Tokyo, the Japanese company demoed its Pic3D sheet, which converts your Windows-based desktop or laptop, or iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch into a 3D display. The sheet uses a lenticular lens system instead of a parallax barrier for a smoother, more consistent image, yielding a reported 90-percent transmission level and 120-degree field [...]
The latest update to Skype’s Android application has just been rolled out and a big part of its goodie delivery is two-way video calling. Only a quartet of phones are supported right now: Google’s own Nexus S, HTC’s Desire S, and the Xperia Neo and Pro from Sony Ericsson, all handsets that shipped with Android 2.3 installed. We suspect the rest of the Android world won’t be far behind — Thunderbolt users will surely be wondering why they’re not included in this first batch — but for now it’s just that fearsome foursome. Also included in Skype [...]
So you’ve bought an Android tablet and can’t quite figure out how things work in this strange new desktop environment?
It’s not like Windows, and doesn’t spoon feed you like iOS, but Android 3.0 is amazingly powerful and highly customisable.
Here’s our top 20 Android 3.0 tips to tune and tweak your tablet, and you won’t have to root it to do a single one.
1. See the normal web (pt1)
Android’s phone-based heritage means that many websites see it come and serve up mobile versions of their content that looks terrible on a 10inch screen. You can get around [...]
Google announced Chromebooks, and unveiled the Samsung Chromebook and the Acer Chromebook at the second day of Google I/O 2011 earlier today.
Along with that, their came a very interesting announcement that Google is working on – the Google Chromebox. This Samsung-built Chromebox will provide the same Chrome OS experience on your desktop, more like Mac Min, but it will have the web-centric Chrome OS for desktops.
No solid details available at the moment, but soon we’ll have something to share as it gets revealed with time. It seems this was just a prototype that Smasung is working on [...]
At only $195, it’s hard to deny that AMD’s new Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition desktop chip is a bargain. Its four cores hum along at 3.7GHz, the fastest base clock speed of any consumer CPU, and the unlocked multiplier should make it trivial for overclockers to push this beast to 4GHz and beyond. The 980 slides right into the same price point as the previous champ, the Phenom II X4 975, and knocks a few bucks off the former clock-frequency king. All of this seems like great news for AMD fans. Of course, if you’re starting from scratch and not just looking to upgrade an [...]
