A computer is not the best device for note taking. Using a LiveScribe pen you can transfer your notes to the computer, including a recording the voice of the lecturer. The pen makes your notes hypertext because it is linked with the audio at the time of note taking. It makes it easy to navigate in the audio recording.
Industrial espionage has never been so easy.
If you can make XMir, why shouldn't you be able to make a tripple protocol display server. Mir and Wayland in the same server. Is that possible? Perhaps Surfaceflinger as well to support Android Apps.
But it is harder to uniquely identify you by IP address
Too many small assignments outside the issue tracker is filling the head with distracting thoughts. One small issue you have to enter on behalf of someone else could loose 10 minutes of productivity. All because the reporter was too lazy to spend 2 minutes in the ticket system. Another distractor is phones, a ringing phone breaks concentration even if it isn't your own. Fortunately my office is completely phone free.
Will we ever see Ubuntu "nexus" hardware. That is Ubuntu branded hardware that is distinct and shows the Ubuntu vision.
An option would be to collect hearing aids from deceased people that obviously don't need them anymore. Adjustment is obviously a problem. A solution could be to have a wide selection of used hearing aids and let people choose which one they prefer. It would probably require a non profit organisation to collect the hearing aids. But used hearing aids are a valuable resource that should be put to good use.
In europe we hear a lot about like video and books in services like Google Play, ITunes, Amazon, Netflix. But the reality is that these services has done a very poor job in supporting the european market. I don't know who is to blame, the EU for not creating a single european content market, rights holders for making it too cumbersome to add their content to these services. Or maybe Google, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and others are just too lazy or too inept. Who do you think is to blame?
This sounds like something from Lord of the Rings or Silmarillion. I hope they don't have the same corrupting power.
It is obvious that the piracy level is higher in regions where it is impossible to buy paid apps. For the sake of the application customers, application publishers and the Android ecosystem, please do something about it google. The ratio between paid versus free apps in the Android Market is extremely tilted towards free apps for this very reason. As long as there are countries where it is impossible to buy paid apps for Android there will be people who will pirate and crack the applications.
There are billion dollar products. I presume the value of the Linux OS, Mysql, Apache HTTP server are several billion dollars if we sum up the value of each installation. However no single company has the monopoly right to sell it, so it is spread around on many many companies where some of them takes part in the development, some not, but many of them are actively contributing by supporting other users in forums.
Yes but it is good to see that for the first time since IE4-6, Microsoft will release a competitive browser. It is interesting what IE9 is doing with hardware acceleration, and hopefully it will inspire other browsers to improve which is good for everyone. If the browsers end up being almost complete operating systems, like the Chrome OS, they needs to be much faster than today.

This means that if the earth collapses to a black hole, the extra dimensions exists. This is an incredible result that will most certainly boost confidence in string theory.
If all the Google OS goodies also exists for Linux, then why should you use Google OS on your smartbook and not Ubuntu Net Remix for example?
