Tanglu 2.0 Screenshot Tour

We are glad to announce the availability of the second release of Tanglu, code name 'Bartholomea'. This release contains a large amount of updated packages, and ships with the latest release of KDE 4 and GNOME. Tanglu 2 ships with two options to install it: Debian Installer (d-i) and our own live-installer. We recommend to use Debian Installer ('Install Tanglu' option on the live CD boot menu), because a lot of testing went into it and it does a much better job compared to the live installer, which will be replaced with Tanglu 3. The KDE flavor of Tanglu received bug-fix updates for the Plasma workspaces and contains new versions of the KDE applications.

Hell yes Apple should dump Google in iOS search!

Apple has much to consider in this decision, but I think they realize that the days of needing Google for search have already come to an end. Search results have become more or less a comparable experience across different search engines, and Google’s money is pocket change to Apple.

Newborn Mini-ITX twins run Linux on Bay Trail SoCs

Aaeon launched two Mini-ITX boards powered by Intel Bay Trail SoCs, and featuring up to three video ports, one or two GbE ports, PCIe expansion, and more. We missed Aaeon’s Atom E3800 based “EMB-BT1? Mini-ITX motherboard when it was announced earlier this year, so we are including it here as we cover two newly released Atom and Celeron based 6.7 x 6.7-inch Mini-ITX SBCs announced by Aaeon this week.

Applications are said to include panel PCs, slim PCs, kiosks, and PoS devices.

Big Brother & Smartphone Driver’s Licenses

Sure, the phone license app might be offered as a option at first, but how long until it becomes a requirement and old fashioned plastic licenses are no longer available? This would mean that anybody who wants to drive a car, at least in Iowa, would have to invest in a certified NSA ready smartphone and data plan.
