The mobile device revolution is in full swing. From Smartphones and Superphones that changed the mobile device game to Tablets that are threatening to effectively put Netbooks out of business save for a few niche applications, our mobile world is changing. This is having an impact on less than mobile computing – your large Laptops and also your venerable Desktop Computer.

Are we moving toward the death of the computer and laptop as we know it today?

DISCLAIMER – I am getting paid to write and place this advertorial, but I have full freedom on what to write. My kind of deal.

I have previously posted about the Google Global Science Fair, and to recap for those who have not read that article – the Google Global Science Fair is an opportunity for young scientists to showcase their skills and projects to a global audience.

Android is taking the world by storm. 300000 devices are being activated daily since December 2010, yet a tightly integrated ecosystem is sorely lacking in the Android arena. I believe strongly that Desktop Linux in general, and Canonical and Ubuntu in particular, are well placed to become key players in this ecosystem, and to become the Operating System partners of choice for the Android environment.

Don't Put Your Number On Facebook!

Really? And now an idiot gave your contact details to the world.

…and sommer post it on Facebook you idiot.

And better still, if I create a Facebook group, which is public, and the sidebar helpfully notes “PRIVACY TYPE: OPEN: ALL CONTENT IS PUBLIC”, why not post it there!

Guess what I did this morning…

So you’ve decided to come over to the wild side and by wild side i mean blogging. Well to be honest blogging ain’t that wild unless you are Seth Rotherham.

I find that most newbie bloggers are tempted to just setup a WordPress blog, choose a theme and start writing blog posts in the hope that millions will visit. Not to put you off blogging, if you genuinely talented and hardworking you could achieve millions of hits, but there are certain crucial things you should do to prepare for the visitors.

Linux Mint 10 Julia has been around for a while now, but I have not gotten around to reviewing it.

Now after using it for a while and getting to know it I decided to write up and post a review of this, arguably the best Linux Distro available.

For this review I am using the DVD edition of Linux Mint 10 Julia.
