WTF? Why does the linux version get shafted on RAM and storage? http://goo.gl/ALSF8U
Atom-powered stick comes with Windows for $149 or Linux for $89.

Perhaps it's a "We're Linux! We're so strong/efficient/what have you, We don't need no stinking resources! Gaaaarrrrrr!" type mentality?

Very well researched and even-keeled synopsis of the mobile payment industry as it exists now, in light of the big media buzz over CurrentC vs. Apple Pay. Great read, good use of 15 minutes.
 
+Chris Sewell and +Russell Holly did an admirable job digging into and clearing up the facts surrounding mobile payments and the looming MCX/CurrentC/Paydient system.

Definitely worth 15 minutes of your time if things like data privacy concern you.
If you’re at all interested in mobile technology, there’s a good chance you’ve seen an article recently about CurrentC. …

WTF Groupon?
 
Please help us defend our trademark from Groupon and support GNOME!  

"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distributions, and it is the default desktop of Fedora and Debian. SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service solution for the retail industry is based on GNOME. GNOME technology can be found in TVs, tablets, phones, consumer devices, and in common software everywhere.

Recently Groupon announced a product with the same product name as GNOME. Groupon’s product is a tablet based point of sale “operating system for merchants to run their entire operation." The GNOME community was shocked that Groupon would use our mark for a product so closely related to the GNOME desktop and technology. It was almost inconceivable to us that Groupon, with over $2.5 billion in annual revenue, a full legal team and a huge engineering staff would not have heard of the GNOME project, found our trademark registration using a casual search, or even found our website, but we nevertheless got in touch with them and asked them to pick another name. Not only did Groupon refuse, but it has now filed even more trademark applications (the full list of applications they filed is available on our groupon page linked). To use the GNOME name for a proprietary software product that is antithetical to the fundamental ideas of the GNOME community, the free software community and the GNU project is outrageous. Please help us fight this huge company as they try to trade on our goodwill and hard earned reputation.

We want to show that our brand matters and that you care. Of the 28 trademark applications Groupon filed, we have to file formal proceedings to oppose 10 of them by December 3, 2014. Help us raise the funds to fight back and most of all call public attention to this terrible behavior by Groupon. Help us make sure that when people hear about GNOME software they learn about freedom and not proprietary software. Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications. If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME. Please help us raise the money to protect GNOME's trademark and strengthen Free Software!

Please donate here:

I got the invitation to use +Google Inbox, but can't because my email address is a Google Apps address. It seems very silly to me that paying Google Apps customers are usually way behind consumer Google users in access to new features.

This is a scary reminder that probably none of us is careful enough with how and where we use our information devices. How does this progress with the increase in wearables and the "Internet of Things?" Will we be in a position of using publicly-available access points without even realizing it? I bet that happens now with a lot of people and their phones.

My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights in early May 2013 in what I gather is the new building. Very clean, service was friendly, prompt and thorough, and when we return to Bar Harbor we will be looking for accommodations here.

My wife and I stayed at The Markland for a night during a whirlwind tour of Cape Breton Island in early July 2013. I can only echo an earlier review in saying that the setting is absolutely idyllic. Breathtaking vistas of Aspy Bay from a quaint if a bit dated cottage porch were the subject of many stunning photos. Now a slight negative: our experience is that you will have some difficulty in reaching them too early in the season. We filled out their online form in early April and received a human (non-automated) email response the next day asking us to contact them via phone and provided a number. We did so and left a voice mail with return number. After two weeks passed we tried again, left another voice mail with another return number. At that point we had nearly resigned ourselves to making other arrangements when we called back one last time in late May and were successful in booking the night. Back to the positives, which far far outweigh that minor gripe: the quality of the food in their restaurant is quite good. We had the lobster and felt it may have been a tiny bit on the dry side, but presentation and quality were overall excellent. The staff are exceptionally warm and friendly, management was very interactive, and the chef walked the dining room speaking to each of the guests. The deck of the cabin we stayed in (#11) had some decay that might be seen as a safety hazard for small children. I reported it to management who indicated that they were aware and had it prioritized for repair. The beauty and serenity of the location and overall layout of the place combined with the warm friendly service make this a top place in my book.
