Congrats everyone, great project! :))))

Well, you did it!

We reached our goal, with 26 days to spare! That was amazing, and I'm incredibly humbled and proud. Thank you all so much.

The campaign goes on, though; we added various new perks, including:

 • the option to donate an Endless computer to Habitat for Humanity or Funsepa, two charities that are involved in housing and education projects in developing countries
 • the full package — computer, carabiner, mug, and t-shirt; this one ships everywhere in the world, while we're still working out the kinks of international delivery of the merch___Congrats everyone, great project! :))))

So now it is official: The EU has sent their "statement of objections" against Google. After reading through it I'd say there isn't a whole lot of substance in there. Only valid point IMHO: The rules that prevent OHA members to build / distribute devices with Android forks. And even that is dubious given that this question wouldn't even arrive with a non-open-source OS.

I guess right now everyone should have already heard that the EU is going to start official antitrust investigations against Google. Not really surprising given recent decisions by the EU. Personally I'm really hoping to finally get some concrete examples of where Google has supposedly breached antitrust rules. This should help with the discussion. (though I'm not betting on it unfortunately ;) )

Interesting tidbit from +The Verge 's Macbook review:
It's fast enough for 70 percent of what I do, but a little slower than what I'm used to. For about 20 percent of what I do — mostly photo editing — it works but requires patience. But it's the last 10 percent that's hard: video editing, really big iPhoto libraries, basically anything processor-intensive can get rough.
So basically for most people the usage possibilities are the same they get with a Chromebook.

Great review of the new Macbook over at +Ars Technica - with a utterly non-suprising result: Great in theory but you might want to wait for the second generation (if this is a device for you at all). Personally: If I would go for a Netbook in that price range I would choose the new Chromebook Pixel instead ;)

Uhm, wow. New Snapseed. Thought that was pretty much dead with all the features going to Google Photos. Great to see such a major update.

Perfect your photos in a snap with the new Snapseed

With billions of images being uploaded and shared on a daily basis, we want to make it fast and easy for people to perfect their photos. What once required a desktop computer, costly software and hours of editing work, can now be accomplished quickly in a powerful app --  +Snapseed  

The new #Snapseed app gives you the precision and control of professional photo editing software on your phone or tablet. We’ve updated the app in many ways while staying true to our mission of helping everyone easily create extraordinary images. Here are the highlights:

New tools including Lens Blur, Tonal Contrast, intelligent perspective Transform, and Spot Healing

Selectively apply filters and effects to parts of the image using the Brush tool

Non-destructive editing via Stacks allows you to re-edit or undo any change. You can also copy edits from one image to another

Snapseed works with your phone camera shots as well as images from DSLRs, compact cameras, and more.

Get it today as it rolls out on the Play Store http://goo.gl/sQSfLM and the App Store http://goo.gl/irPbd4___Uhm, wow. New Snapseed. Thought that was pretty much dead with all the features going to Google Photos. Great to see such a major update.

It's bad enough that the Manjaro Linux devs let their SSL certificate expire. But forgetting about this is one thing, giving out batshit crazy advice to your users is another. "If you encounter problems turn back the time on your computer". WTF?!

"The Apple Watch ... is kind of slow."

"Sometimes apps take forever to load, and sometimes third-party apps never really load at all. Sometimes it’s just unresponsive for a few seconds while it thinks and then it comes back."

"It’s also surprisingly heavy."

"[The] side button is extraordinarily confusing."

"In the first of many moments where the Watch felt underpowered, I found that the screen lit up a couple of ticks too slowly: I’d raise my wrist, wait a beat, and then the screen would turn on."

"Having a screen that constantly flips on and off is definitely behind the curve."

"There’s no particularly great digital face, and there’s no ability to load up your own watch faces or buy new ones from the store."

"There’s no master switch to turn all notifications on and off, which is a huge pain."

"By the end of each day, I was hyper-aware of how low the Apple Watch battery had gotten."

"You only get a charging cable, which is lame. For $700, you should a nice charging stand, like you get with the $249 Moto 360."

"There’s virtually nothing I can’t do faster or better with access to a laptop or a phone except perhaps check the time."

"There’s no question that the Apple Watch is the most capable smartwatch available today."

LG just revealed the UI for the LG G4 - before revealing the phone itself. The basic direction looks pretty similar to what Samsung does which I would characterize as "kinda Material Design". Still: Progress.

I won't summarize the whole review here, but one of the things that I found odd in other reviews: Calling the new Touchwiz "lighter" is quite the stretch. Actually it uses significantly more storage than the software of the S5. Samsung masks that by putting a lot of apps in folders which makes the launcher look less cluttered (they have 13 Google apps in one folder...). Sure: UI wise it is a bit better but the basic problem (reinventing everything for no apparent reason - and I'm not talking about actually useful additions to Android here) is still valid.

How far we have come. Microsoft doesn't rule out making Windows Open Source anymore. Which might sound suprising at first but really isn't. As soon as Windows is free for consumers switching to more of an Enterprise Linux model to make money would be logical (focus on selling support not the software itself). I think there are two big hurdles to this getting reality though:
1) Given its long history Windows code most likely is very messy, using loads of internal tools. So to make an Open Source release successfull MS would have to refactor quite a bunch of code.
2) If you are already at this point, Microsoft will have to ponder the question if it wouldn't be more useful for them to go with Linux instead. Their platform is moving to a higher layer anyway so "owning" the OS is not as important as it once was. Disclaimer: Naturally I'm talking only about... more »

Loads of improvements in Chrome OS lately - and quite a few of them on the system level. Either the Chrome OS devs are working crazy times nowadays or Google has increased development resources. 

Enthusiastic developers can already start to implement their own virtual private network¹ (VPN) client thanks to the recent vpnProvider Extension API² in Chrome OS Dev Channel.

First, create some VPN configurations in the Chrome OS status tray. From there, user can select a VPN configuration and connect to it or disconnect from it.
Initiate the connection to the VPN server and start the VPN client.
Then a virtual tunnel is created to the Chrome OS network stack. IP packets can be sent through the tunnel and any packets originating on the Chrome OS device will be received by the extension.

I also saw that statement on The Verge. Sounds intriguing. But did anyone find proof that Google actually has opened up Android for Chrome OS development? Or is this just a "coming soon"?

Google just announced a whole bunch of new Chrome OS devices. Chromebooks starting from 149 (!) USD and a convertible from ASUS. But maybe the most interesting device (at least to me): The Chromebit. Which looks to be a HDMI stick like the Chromecast but containing a whole Chrome OS computer. That should be neat to experiment on :)))

Meet the Surface 3, Microsofts new tablet that puts the final nail into Windows RTs coffin. Personally I still think it suffers from the same problem as its bigger brother does: Its a ok (though still a bit expensive and heavy) tablet and a so-so laptop both in one. Which is fine if you like to have hybrid devices, but myself I really can't stand those. But as I said: YMMV. Having said that: What are your thoughts?

Given the fiasco that the Snapdragon 810 turns out to be, this would be a very understandable decision. Especially as the 810 in the HTC One M9 actually is slower than the 805 (which is used in the Nexus 6) as they had to do downlock it. Still strange that LG more or less openly stated that the 810 problems had been resolved - just to back out a few weeks later...

Surprise, suprise! The Nexus 6 is finally available in Google Store in Austria (and Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway and Portugal). If you can live with the size and don't mind the prize I'd still choose this over every other Android phone right now.

GNOME 3.16 is out and here is my review (as usual: in German). My personal highlight is the new notification system, much better. In general it's quite impressive how much progress GNOME has made since the early 3.0 days.

Hilarious! So, Ars Technica ran a story about YouTube Live, a supposed new streaming platform focused on game streaming, and they reached out to +YouTube for comment. A YouTube representative replied with this GIF below.

When asked about the report, a YouTube representative declined to comment to Ars and instead sent us an animated GIF of a little girl shrugging her shoulders.
