+AMD's #RadeonR9Nano  is being pushed out to press for sampling round about now.

As usual journalists who cover hardware from #Linux  perspectives are noticeably absent from the list of reviewers with hardware in hand.

Still no word on whether or not Day 1 PC also means #SteamOS  / #Debian   #Linux  support. Mostly sharing the PS4 link due to lack of an equivalent Windows/Linux tagged video.

... I can only imagine trying to explain this to a mid-level manager:   "Yeah, about that project? Turned out it accidentally was a file system"

#GNiE   #Murkypolitics  

I long ago stopped using +Mozilla Firefox in favor of +Google Chrome, +Opera, #KDE   #Konqueror , and more recently the #Vivaldi  browser from former Opera developers. I think I decided I was personally done with Mozilla after they gave into a politically driven liberal agenda pushed by an aggressive mob. 

This change doesn't make it any more likely that I, as an end user, would consider moving back. 
I can understand why Mozilla would want to do this, but they clearly don't get why they shouldn't do it. As Firefox's popularity continues to wane, the last thing they should do is alienate their developer community.
Mozilla wants to modernize Firefox's extension and add-on systems, but those are the last things many programmers want.

Some of +Intel​'s new kit might address some of these issues.
Recent academic research has found that the SSDs used in many flash arrays have surprising performance issues. For example, researchers from Carnegie Mellon and Facebook and recently discovered that placing sparse arrays on SSDs cause premature wear and failure.

Researchers at SanDisk found that applications, such as no SQL databases, that have log structured I/O, have interference effects with SSDs that slow performance and increase latency. The log structured flash translation layer (FTL) that makes flash look like a disk interacts with the already log structured I/O from the application in deleterious ways.
Flash-based SSDs have revolutionized enterprise storage. But SATA SSDs have serious problems that show that after more than 50 years of disk-based storage, our ancient I/O stack must be rebuilt. Here's why.

+Sony / +Sony Xperia seem to be teasing their next flagship device... possibly.

Given that the Qualcomm 820 is still a good distance away... at the 810 update that was called the Z4 already out at as the Z3+... I'm laying odds that the 2015 fall flagship could be a Z3 Ultra based on Nvidia's Tegra X1 platform... 
Looking back on innovation is inspiring, but looking forward? That’s truly exciting.

I'm not exactly what one would call a fan of the +WWE.

That being said...  #stephenamell  as #Arrow  at #Wrestlemania32  would probably even get me to ante up for watching that broadcast live.

... #GNiE   #Murkypolitics  

+Re/code apparently keeps having to ask itself why they can't draw in traffic despite the presence of quote/unquote "heavy hitters"  like Walt Mossberg. I think this story answers the question completely.

Hillary Clinton is, by this time, somebody who has openly confessed to criminal actions. She has publicly confessed to Obstruction of Justice; she has publicly confessed to dereliction of duty; and she has publicly confessed to malfeasance in office.

Hillary Clinton should be sitting in a US Federal Penitentiary cooling her heels after her public statements surrounding her time office, her actions on the privately held computer server, and her attempts to conceal her actions while in office.  She should not be attempting to run any kind of campaign.

That more tech sites; and more tech journalists; are not up in arms demanding that those flying under the +GOP Banner do not immediately and actively get Hillary Clinton's public statements before a judge and bring charges; is the actual story here.

8 reasons to donate to the KDE Sprints 2015 fundraising campaign

#2 - You'll help create a supportive atmosphere for new contributors to KDE

Most of the time, free software contribution is done by volunteers who work remotely and communicate with other contributors over the Internet. A lot of KDE development work is accomplished that way. However, there is a remarkable boost in productivity, cooperation, overcoming of barriers and synergistic decision making when developers are brought together for in-person meetings (sprints). Sprints are a catalyst for hard and focused work. They help to build friendships, strengthen motivation, and bring together more experienced contributors. Sprints also encourage participation from new people who are committed to free software excellence, people with technical skills and fresh ideas. Yes, you can help to make all of this happen!
