Been having this nagging thought about systemd turning into basically being a microkernel. Or at least a microvisor. But without the design pedigree of e.g. Fiasco-UX (L4) that can also run as a userspace process.

I've noticed over the last few months that Evolution (mail client) was getting a little slow. Filtering and indexing the 30k+ emails in my Inbox seemed like a good explanation.
A quick check with 'strace -p' seemed to confirm this as the slowdown happened right after opening the file 'filters.xml'. Looking at the file revealed the real culprit: massively duplicated filter rules. Up to 16384 times for some rules #facepalm  GNOME bug number 761384 filed :)

Verizon Msg: You've used all the data in your 1GB plan (cycle ends the 15th). Extra data for this cycle is $15 per 1GB. Or, to increase your plan by 1GB for $0 more per month, reply YES. #nobrainer

Watch out for Apple inventing some of the features Xiaomi copied from future iPhones soon!
 
The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro has some of the most ridiculous specs we've ever seen in a smartphone to this point. Too bad it probably won't get a global launch.
Xiaomi had a few big surprise announcements to make this morning, and we mean that both figuratively and literally. First, the literally -- it's a phablet. Two phablets, in fact. And boy, are they powerful.
