June 4, 2013, 4 p.m. by Roland Taylor

As you may have noticed, we have had some theme updates, and Nathan has also added sharing buttons to our posts! He's been working hard on 2buntu, and it keeps getting better! But! That's not all, I'm planning some layout changes, so keep your eyes open.


Bridging The Gap - Why is the world so stuck?
April 25, 2013, 9:22 a.m. by LemieT

Hello, I am Lemuel Taylor and I am a Windows user. I have always been and still continue to be. The thing is, I am seeing someone else, her name is Ubuntu. She looks very nice, and some of the things we do together are so much fun. The problem is, I can't seem to leave my first love. My ...


Is Ubuntu Phone targetting 4K UHD video capturing???
Jan. 17, 2013, 5:34 a.m. by Howard Chan

Today I went into the usual strolling along Launchpad and IRC and such (and still moaning about not being able to download any Android 4.0 or up source code) and found something interesting when I visited the Launchpad page of Ubuntu. In the "Newest Blueprints" section there is a blueprint called "Ubuntu Phone: Enable the ability to film 4K UHD ...


Looks like we made it ;)

...through the "end of the world ;). Now that it's over, let's return our focus to Christmas :) So why this post on a tech blog? Well because I'm thinking all this time, I've never given away anything, even digital, and between now and the 25th, I want to put together a little something, like a pack of Mission : ...


Windows 8: Ten Reasons to Upgrade
Nov. 8, 2012, 7:31 p.m. by Joshua Bell

Windows 8 has been out for some 13 days, and despite spending my hard earned $39.99 on release day, I have yet to post any tips, tricks or reviews. Not a single mention, so let's make it happen. Being that I have used Windows 8 since the first public beta, I saw it grow from its infancy, and despite everyone ...


1995 called, and it wants its visuals back.
Oct. 31, 2012, 6:02 p.m. by Roland Taylor

In a clear bid to belittle the work done in Desktop Linux for the past 16~ years, Engadget, a hub for Windows and Mac users, decided to step out and write a rather disappointing <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2012/10/30/how-to-picking-a-window-manager-linux/" target="_blank">article</a> showcasing and comparing the most obscure and outdated Window Managers they could find. Infuriated does not begin to describe how I feel. I ...


Why doesn't checkbox work!?!?!
Sept. 25, 2012, 9:10 p.m. by Howard Chan

Now I don't know what have I got myself into. I only have a Compaq Presario CQ41-203TX notebook, in which I do all sorts of things, blogging, testing, documentation, coding...... (I think my i5 CPU is going to explode soon) The weird thing is that when I launch Checkbox (Find "System Testing" in the Dash) it gets me to the ...


Ubuntu Ads? Let's set the record straight.
Sept. 22, 2012, 8:05 p.m. by Roland Taylor

<h1>Update:</h1> [important]I've been told that there are indeed links to Amazon and the Ubuntu One Music Store added to the launcher, but strangely, after updating and resetting my launcher's favourites, I still don't see them. I will keep investigating, but I would like to remind everyone - launcher items to launch webstores are <strong>not</strong> advertisements.[/important] <h1>Myths, Lies, and Scandal</h1> First ...


12.10 - kiss your fringe cases goodbye
Sept. 1, 2012, 11:11 a.m. by Roland Taylor

Ubuntu 12.10 is shaping up to be a great release all around - unless you're in the fringes. This post a bit of a fringe case rant, but it highlights just how difficult it is to satisfy everyone. However, it will also highlight some areas where Ubuntu might lose ground in certain circles, because of a little hardheadedness (no offense!!!). ...

June 9, 2012, 10:07 a.m. by Roland Taylor

This is not an advertisement! Our own Nathan Osman (better known as George Edison), has updated his site, Quick Media Solutions, with a brand new look and feel, and a better navigational structure, which makes it easier to find the tools you want (and he has many). <a href="http://i.imgur.com/flPXK.png"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/flPXKl.jpg" /></a> Also new on the site is the ability to ...
