UBUNTU FOR DEVICES
SEEMS IT'S GETTING CLOSER, AND NOW THERE IS A COMMERCIAL PHONE AVAILABLE WITH IT PRE-INSTALLED

#Ubuntu #UbuntuForDevices #UbuntuTouch #UbuntuAndroid #DualBoot

Even if you don't want to pay for a new phone in order to try Ubuntu on it, there are other ways to give it a try.

It's now possible to have Ubuntu alongside Android and give it a try from time to time.

Ubuntu can also be indepandantly installed, instead of Android, but it's a little risky.

You may want to take a close look at https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/start/ubuntu-for-devices/installing-ubuntu-for-devices/ for the standalone installation and at http://lifehacker.com/how-to-dual-boot-ubuntu-on-your-android-device-1577325241 for dual booting.

Haven't rooted my phone yet, so, it will take some time until I try it myself.
 
And it’s here. We’re very proud to be sharing the Ubuntu phone with you, which will bring a new generation of mobile experiences. For the first time, there will be a phone that revolves around the content and services that matter to you. Say goodbye to opening and switching between multiple apps in the icon grid and let Ubuntu scopes bring everything you need to your screen, giving users a rich, unfragmented experience #ubuntuphone 
The world’s first Ubuntu phone is now available for sale all over Europe, direct from the manufacturer, BQ. The Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition includes an 8 megapixel camera, dual SIM and best of all, no network lock.

CREATING A BOOTABLE USB WITH EASE
INSTALLERS AND CUSTOMIZED BOOTABLE USB STICKS IS A PIECE OF CAKE

#BootableUSB   #Bootable   #ISO   #DiskImage   #LiveUSB

    I found it today, while looking for a easy to use, fast and automated application software for creating a live USB instead of live CD for installing Ubuntu on my system (I was on the road, had the ISO image, but didn't have any blank CD/DVD).

    Right now, I'm using it to create my live USB and doing other stuff without having to change anything on it or look at it from time to time. Making bootable USBs have never been easier than this!
UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

The funny part is that I didn't manage to create that bootable USB stick after sharing this... My 1 GB flash memory didn't have enough space for the filesystem I was trying to extract from the ISO image and I found it out after about half an hour!
This has nothing to do with UNetbootin... This piece of software is still great. I only have to catch up with technology changes and get me a bigger and faster USB memory stick!

CHOOSING THE RIGHT FABRIC
SPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO GYM WEAR AND ODOR

I was just reading a good essay on how odor is trapped in some fabrics and how some materials create germ heavens!

It seems that some serious research is going on to determine the best material for odor-safe apparel!

Follow the link bellow for more information but as an abstract to this short article, you need to know that a research on growth rate of different odor producing germs and microbes on different fabrics concludes that these germs grow relatively low on cotton, very high on wool, nylon and polyester, and very very low on viscose.

Although some manufacturers are using nano silver in their sports fabric (which is not recommended due to the fact that nano silver eliminates good germs along with bad ones), a better and more economical approach is to use hybrid apparel which consist of different material and fabrics for different parts (e.g cotton for armpits and viscose/polyester for the rest).

█▌ WORKPLACE OF MY DREAMS
▐▌ UTOPIAN WORK TERMS APPLY HERE

    If somebody could tell me where this ⤵ is, I would eagerly apply for a job!

    I'm not a full time programmer, and don't cry when someone disrupts my concentration when working, but it's a real pain (isn't it?!)...

█▌ UNRELATED POSTS PROBLEM
▐▌ WHAT SHOULD WE DO WITH THE USERS THAT ARE POSTING UNRELATED POSTS ON COMMUNITIES?

    My stream is getting more and more populated with unrelated posts from different communities, and most of them are coming from Google+ help community.

    I can not imagine why someone should post his photo or an unrelated picture, without any explanation or comment on this community! But this is happening a lot. Just in the past 3 hours, I have seen more than three of these posts... Looking down a couple of scrolls to All posts stream of this community, I can pin a dozen of these:

https://plus.google.com/105153340575939574089/posts/iGf7tZLfTJg

    I was wondering, what should I do with these people?! I know that moderators and owners of communities can easily flag these and mark them as spam, but I'm not sure what to do! Is it ethical to flag them? Should we ask them to remove their posts and stop derailing communities, and flag/block/mute them if it happened again?

    It's really a question of culture: we have guidelines for other matters, like adding back someone who has added you to his circles is not G+ culture and you can add only the people you find interesting without being rude... What about this matter?! Is it right to erase these users even though they might not be aware of what they are doing?

Ban them. This community has enough noise already without letting idiots clog it up with unrelated nonsense.

BOOTREC SAVED ME!
MBR IS A LITTLE TRICKY TO MESS WITH, BUT IT'S SOMETIMES NEEDED TO OVERWRITE IT

#DualBoot #Windows #Linux #MBR #FixMBR #OverwritingMBR

Had some problems after trying to upgrade my Ubuntu installation from update manager (which I really don't recommend to anyone, because it seems that the upgrade takes longer and will usually leave you with an Ubuntu that won't start) and I had to remove it from my partitions in order to install a fresh copy.

The problem was that I used it alongside Windows 7, dual booting with GRUB. Without the Linux partitions, GRUB wouldn't let me boot up with Windows and I had to update my MBR.

I don't know if it's something with my memory, or was this someday the correct way of doing this, but I tried "fdisk /mbr" without any success. Seems that the programs have changed since the last time I was trying to do this on Windows XP! Just when I was beginning to worry about how I'm going to update this MBR in order to bring back the Windows boot-loader, I found out that it is "bootrec /fixmbr" that does this on Windows 7!

It is now done and Windows is in charge again. I'll be installing my favorite distro alongside it in an hour or so. Thought this can help someone who is wondering how to overwrite the MBR on Windows 7 and is trying to use "fdisk" like those good old days, without any success.

I remember good old fashioned 'fdisk /mbr', but didn't heard of bootrec, seems like we're getting old ;)

I don't say this is totally accurate, but it sounds right in some parts!

Can anyone mention some references for this?!

BAD SCIENCE
HOW TO IDENTIFY BAD SCIENCE FROM REAL

I have been struggling to prove that many of the articles shared through social networks, emails and communication platforms (if I'm allowed to call things like Viber, WhatsApp and alikes, communication platforms) are not actually science!

This happens a lot, specially in the country I currently live in, and in many cases the results are catastrophic! I remember an essay about benefits of consuming a garlic and lemon drink for lowering cholesterol which caused some people to use it instead of their medication and they suffered the consequences, or another one about dairy (specially milk) that made many stop drinking it and had an impact on dairy companies!

It is not hard to dig into an article before believing it these days... An internet connection and a little scientific background accompanied with a logical mind is all that you need in most cases! Let's not believe everything we read.

These guidlines are some of the first signs of a bad scientific report (or one that is not scientific at all!):
1. Sensationalized headlines;
2. Misinterpreted results;
3. Conflict of interests;
4. Correlation and causation;
5. Speculative language;
6. Too small sample size;
7. Unrepresentative samples;
8. No control group used;
9. No blind testing used;
10. Cherry-picked results;
11. Un replicable results;
12. Valued by journals and citations;

█▌ IT'S NOT TOO LATE!
▐▌ PEOPLE WHO TOOK INDIRECT PATH TO SUCCESS, BUT DID IT AT LAST...

    As Michael Crichton quoted in Jurassic park, most of wise and talented people do not know what to do with their lives until they are 40 (or something like this)!

    This great info-graphic like re-share by +Ramiro Garcia reminded me of that quote and I must admit, I received it during a very dark era when I was having a hard time!
