Nokia has released the latest in its line of touchscreen Internet tablets, the N810 is the first device in this series to come with integrated GPS and a slide-out keyboard. Nokia announced the tablet, which runs on the company's Maemo Linux operating system, at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco.
One of the "holy grails" of software development is the ability to write a program that will operate across platforms without you (the coder) having to rewrite for each platform. Enter Qt 4, a toolkit used largely for developing GUI applications for Linux, UNIX, Mac, and Windows. Qt 4 seems to fit the bill and be the answer to this "crusade", but can the same be said about "The Book of QT 4"?
With the release of Ubuntu Gutsy, there remains questions as to whether or not Ubuntu wireless bugs with once working chipsets have been resolved. In today’s post, we look at what works, what will never work reliably and what you can do to have wireless access with 802.11g using WPA - no excuses.
The sincerest complement a Linux distribution can get is when the onetime CEO of a rival Linux company switches to that distribution. That’s exactly what happened when Kevin Carmony, former CEO of Linux desktop distributor Linspire, publicly announced that he’s switched to Ubuntu.
Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon has been released today. I haven’t tested any alpha or beta versions of the new product from Canonical. I have decided to wait for the Release Candidate, since this has proved to work for me in the past. In short: it did not disappoint me. The new Ubuntu is more polished, more professional and in general, better than the previous one, which was already a great OS. Minor glitches? Present, as always.

Pop quiz. You’re a $7bn software company that has all the sex appeal of a shy potato. What do you do? Buy XenSource, of course. In August, Citrix dug deep and found $500m to acquire XenSource – a company expected to bring in all of $8m this year, according to our sources. In an instant, this deal transformed Citrix from a very competent, well-paid, niche application streamer to a major player in the most-hyped part of the server and management software markets. People who had no idea what Citrix actually does took notice and wondered how this company will fair against an upstart like VMware and a lumbering giant like Microsoft.
There's a wealth of information stored in online collaborative services like YouTube, Flickr, and Wikipedia, but are these Web 2.0 services built to facilitate sharing their content across their individual boundaries? A group of academicians at Cornell University argue that this new wave of applications should be constructed with interoperability in mind. The result of their research, funded by DARPA and NSF, is Fedora, the Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture. The project was recently awarded a $4.9M grant by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to expand the functionality of its software platform.
IHOP's VP of IT discusses the principles guiding its technology transformation. When Patrick Piccininno stepped up to the counter of IHOP in 2003, it wasn't for a short stack—it was for Linux, with a side of cost savings.
It's Gutsy day, and Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy is now available. Check the Ubuntu home page for info, or go directly to the 7.10 tour page for everything that's changing in Ubuntu. Doing a Ubuntu upgrade -- especially trying to get a full ISO file -- on day 1 is, if not pure folly, mostly folly. So recheck this entry throughout the day as I report on my Gutsy progress.
I’ll cut to the chase and say from the start that Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy) Desktop Edition is simply the best desktop operating system that I have ever used. From installation, to setup, to regular everyday use Gutsy is just a thing of beauty. I have been keeping up with the release since its initial rocky Alpha period, to the polished final Release Candidate released on October 15, 2007 and then apt-get upgrading to the final release. The end result is that the Ubuntu team has put together everything that you could possibly want in a desktop operating system and more.

Google isannouncing plans for Personal Health Record (PHR) software. Microsoft announced a similar butcontroversial effort less than two weeks ago. Google's offering is said to be available in 2008 so no analysis is possible yet."Marissa Mayer, Google's vice president of search products and user experience, said Wednesday here at the Web 2.0 Summit that Google plans to support the"storage and movement" of people's health records...Although she provided only scant details on the effort, she noted that Google became interested in the personal health record market as it watched Hurricane Katrina take aim at the Gulf Coast and all the paper-based records stored in various medical offices and hospitals in the region..."
Synergy is an open source project that allows you to share a keyboard and a mouse among several different computers, each connected to some sort of monitor, without any extra hardware (i.e. KVM switches). Synergy runs over the network and can be used with several different operating systems.
If you want to experiment with tags on your WordPress site, there's never been a better time. The newest WordPress version, 2.3, offers native tagging support. Working with tags in WordPress 2.3 is not a totally intuitive process, and ubiquitous tag management plugin Ultimate Tag Warrior is not supported in 2.3, so coders have been busy writing new plugins to help you take advantage of every ounce of tag functionality in WordPress. Here are five tag management plugins for 2.3 you might want to try.
Some thoughts about the current crop of PHRs in the wake of theAHIMA PHR campaign launch as reported by Digital HealthCare& Productivity.
Having been a Linux user for a number of years, weathering immense criticism for thinking like a normal person rather than an engineer, you might think that articles like this one would have me moving in to agree with such statements. But me being me, I choose to rebel.
Fonts in Linux are crazy. Most Linux distributions ship with a big blob of serif, sans serif, and monospaced fonts, and there's barely a pixel's worth of difference between them. In this article, we'll demonstrate how to better manage fonts in Linux, no matter what distribution you're using.
Novell Suse Linux is positioning itself to be the corporate Linux of choice for today's multi-OS corporation thanks to a series of agreements with companies such as SAP and Microsoft.
