Subject: Popular To Do App For Linux 'Getting Things Gnome' Is Alive And Doing Well

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Getting Things Gnome is one of the most popular organizer/to-do application for Linux. However, there has been lack of updates in last couple of years and many users thought that the project is dead. Proving them wrong, GTG developers released a new preview release version 2.9 which will eventually turn into stable 3.0 series. This release brings many new changes including those contributed by GSoC developers. There are also plans to improve GTG Web Application.

Subject: Pear Linux Comice OS 4 beta 1 review

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Back on December 17 2011, I published a review of a new Linux distribution named Pear Linux OS Panther 3. It is based on Ubuntu Desktop and has a desktop interface fashioned after Apple’s Mac OS X. It had its faults, but it was a refreshing take on the Linux desktop. That first release was code-named Panther, after Mac OS X 10.3. Subsequent releases were supposed to be code-named after the corresponding Mac OS X version. So the next version, Pear Linux OS 4, would have been code-named Tiger, after Mac OS X 10.4. But that was last year. This year, things have changed. The distribution now goes by a slightly different name – Pear Linux Comice OS, and the latest version is Pear Linux Comice OS 4.

Subject: Using an Asterisk/FreePBX phone server, and don't have the latest version? It may be vulnerable!!

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

If you have an asterisk phone server running on a public IP, using the freePBX web GUI, and don’t have one of the latest releases it may be vulnerable. Its very common to have freePBX on an Internet routed IP, especially if you have multiple locations using the same freePBX server. And the scary part is, little documentation exists about this vulnerability, and as of right now its not listed on CVE details:http://www.cvedetails.com/vendor/6470/Freepbx.html

Versioning in digiKam provides an excellent mechanism for non-destructive editing, but it does have a tiny quirk that can be a bit confusing if you are not aware of it.

Subject: Wasteful and unethical: why we hate crippled products

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

In the world of consumer electronics, it's common for companies to create a range of products that are all variations on a theme, containing slightly faster processors or a bit more memory. These products serve two important functions for their producers: they put the price of entry within reach of more consumers, and they induce those with a bit more cash to take steps up the product ladder and purchase a more expensive version. However, a study that has just been released by the Journal of Consumer Research suggests that the companies that take this tack have to be careful about how they go about things. Creating a product range by crippling an existing product can work against the company if word filters out.

Subject: Why Ubuntu Business Desktop Remix will be a tough sell

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

That brings up this question: What is the penetration or adoption rate of Ubuntu Desktop in the business sector? I do not have the numbers, and Canonical has not released any, as far as I know, but given that Mark and Co. have had a rough going trying to persuade PC vendors to pre-load Ubuntu Desktop on personal computers sold to the public, I doubt that the adoption rate is significant. If true (I could be wrong, though), I do not thing that a separate desktop edition for business users will make any difference.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Your Android device is a versatile tool which can be put to a variety of practical uses, including reading ebooks. But for that you need a decent ebook reading app. While there are several ebook readers available on the Android Market, the Cool Reader and FBReader open source apps are probably the best of the bunch.
