Submission + - AT&T Over Proposed T-Mobile Purchase (

An anonymous reader writes: In March, AT&T and T-Mobile USA parent company Deutsche Telekom announced plans for AT&T to acquire the rival carrier in a cash and stock deal worth roughly $39 billion.

Submission + - KDE 4.7 – A First Look At Beta 1 (

dmbkiwi writes: "In the last couple of major releases of the 4.x release of KDE SC, the changes have been largely incremental. In fact, it seems that Gnome and Ubuntu (separately but contemporaneously) have swapped places with KDE SC 4. Previously it was Gnome that was the steady plodder making minor incremental changes through the 2.x series, building stability and only adding minor features. However, with the recent releases of both Gnome Shell and the Unity desktop on Ubuntu, the Gnome/Ubuntu side of the desktop linux equation has made radical and controversial steps away from the well loved Gnome 2.x series, leaving KDE 4.x as the “steady as she goes” option."
