LXer - Wed, 2016-07-13 21:01
Recently, a client of mine asked me if I had any experience in how to optimize how they send swag out to people. The scenario was a common one: the company made T-shirts, stickers, mugs, and other merchandise that they wanted to ship to deserving community members, but actually getting it there was turning out to be a massive pain in the rear-end.read more

There is a semi-disturbing trend happening in the Android market nowadays -- very affordable smartphones. Before you call me nuts, it's true there is nothing inherently wrong with a consumer saving money, but a race to the bottom can hurt the platform overall. No-name manufacturers are leveraging decent specs and selling phones at insanely low prices, making profits tough for the big-name players. If Android becomes unprofitable, why will anyone bother?

Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition Review

TuxMachines - Wed, 2016-07-13 20:07

Despite Nokia ex-CEO Stephen Elop's boasts, the smartphone market has indeed become a two-horse race between Android and iOS. Of course, just because those two have pretty much cornered the mobile market doesn't mean there is no room for others, especially those that aren't aiming for world domination. At leat not yet. We're talking here about more unconventional, more "experimental" platforms like, say, Ubuntu Touch. Although already in the commercial market for more than a year, Ubuntu Touch's smartphone promise reaches its full potential in the more muscled Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition. But does this so far most powerful Ubuntu smartphone live up to the expectations it has set up for itself? It's time to buckle your seat belts and join us for another ride into the somewhat alien world of Ubuntu on Mobile.

An IDE with a detachable editor?

Reddit - Wed, 2016-07-13 18:40

Is there an IDE with a detachable editor window? Think GIMPs multi window mode vs single window mode.

I'd like to take advantage of a vertical monitor by splitting the editor out of the main application and placing it in the vertical monitor while the IDE controls can be placed on the other monitor.

I normally just use use vim, but for some languages that I am not advanced in I find an IDE helps. But I hate losing all the screen real estate with a bunch of toolbars that I rarely utilize.

Or are there plugins for Netbeans, Eclipse, JetBrains etc?
