One of the most underrated features of the latest generation of consoles is the abiltiy to "suspend" the console rather than turning it off completely. Both the Xbox One (since launch) and PS4 (since March) let users put the system into a low-power "rest" mode that provides for a much quicker startup when getting back into the suspended game, saving up to 30 seconds (or more) each time you start up.

After the success releasing Nyu with a lot of passion, we decided to start creating Koe witch reached the final stage yesterday! Koe is based on Kubuntu 14.04 with vanilla KDE 4.13.3 core libs containing Manga drawing, viewing, Anime playback and as well subtitle programs out-of-the-box. We beg for your patience at booting, the system has no boot-logo (to look more intuitive with the KDE desktop), but positively it ships some customization to fit the way as a complete beautiful operating system made just for you! Note: We may release an update until end year with a correction at the missed installer `quit' message (it does not affect the installation) and application menu mouse hover closing.

Through the years, Firefox has enjoyed a reputation as one of the most secure Web browsers on any platform, and it's the default browser for many Linux distros. However, a security exploit appeared this week that has shown users they can't afford to be complacent about security. Mozilla has rushed to patch the flaw, and a new release has closed the hole (39.0.3). But, plenty of users still haven't updated their browsers.

It also supports two new VPN plugins for connecting over SSH or SFTP.
Nmap is a free and open source network discovery and security auditing utility that is widely used in the Linux users community as it is simple to use yet very powerful. Nmap works by sending data packets on a specific target (by IP) and by interpreting the incoming packets to determine what posts are open/closed, what services are running on the scanned system, whether firewalls or filters are set up and enabled, and finally what operation system is running.

Which Linux or open source operating system would candidates for the current presidential election run, if they used open source software? Today, we take a look at the Republicans.
Valve is making some hard choice for SteamOS, and it looks like they are having some issues with the support for various components. In this case, it's about the support for suspend, which is not all that good, forcing them to drop it from the operating system.

Around 1994, I was a database and security consultant in London. Working in the financial sector around Threadneedle Street. In those days, the only choices for home operating systems were Windows 3.1 or, if you had enough memory, the new offering from Microsoft: Windows 95. Both required expensive machines to run. (I had to upgrade my desktop to 8MB in order to successfully install Windows 95!)
Microsoft Office was the go-to office suite for every client, and database environments ran on either mainframes or client server farms on very expensive hardware. Having a home computer on which to learn this software was very expensive.
WordPress is a popular favorite among web site owners and its also a favorite among hackers. We reached out to WordPress.org as well as Automattic for comment on why they think this is the case and any future plans they have to make it more secure, particularly for themes and plugins created by 3rd parties, which is where the majority of the exploits are. Automattic has not responded to our request. WordPress.org got in touch with us stating they do review any plugins hosted by WordPress, but have no control over plugins not hosted by them. He also stated he didn’t have any information if any thing would be done differently by WordPress as far as how they handle non-hosted 3rd party themes and plugins in the future.
