DougWare writes: From the Gizmodo article: "So, what makes these 'phones "smart"? Well, you can Tweet and post to your Facebook wall directly from the Muziks. And like the Parrot Zikk's, you can flip through tracks and adjust volume by tapping on the right earcup. Four dimples on the right earcup control a variety of actions, like posting what you're listening to from Spotify directly to Facebook or Twitter. An accelerometer makes the Muzik even more intelligent so they stop playing when you take them off your noggin."

Comment Why have a linux desktop? (Score 1) 615

As an avid linux user/systems administrator for over 11 years...I still do not understand why you need both server and desktop versions. Once you pick a distrobution, you should choose either bleeding edge or stable...those should be the only two versions you really need to worry about. I've also been a huge user of RH and it's forks (previously WhiteBox, currently CentOS). If I needed a desktop installation you simply do not install the server packages. Can someone explain why we need a dedicated desktop version?
