Back to running Gnome 3
This time I am in it for the long haul

Seems like Gnome team has ironed out the kinks.

Definitely my choice for a more modern approach to a Desktop environment. 
Introduction. Ubuntu GNOME is an official flavour of Ubuntu, featuring the GNOME desktop environment. Ubuntu GNOME (formerly Ubuntu GNOME Remix) is a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories. Our first (unofficial) release was 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal), ...

LOL. This is so funny. Chrome as a RAM benchmarking tool. This also explains the sad status of browser memory problem :(

Prepare to slay some Radroaches, Fallout Shelter is coming to Android next month! I tell you all about it with this review :-)
Bethesda’s big reveal at its 2015 E3 press conference focused around the ultra-popular Fallout name, heralding the return of the series in Fallout 4: Welcome Home. The presentation included a highlight reel of features, game play, and all the hype a beloved game franchise deserves. The crowds moved on through the rest of E3 as the Internet lit up with reports and reviews. What happens after the information explosion has time to settle ...

The phone has Bluetooth, WiFi, Microphone and two cameras and some nuts are thinking they are spying on us with a NFC chip on a battery.

Call for tech writers to stop disparaging Google+ and its users! Please +1 and reshare this! +Engadget has decided in their great wisdom to hire writers that dismiss +Google+, and insult its users. Writers like +Andrew Tarantola, who write for such blogs as +Gizmodo, and have little to do but be dismissive and make snarky comments simply because people didn't find him interesting enough to circle him. < That is their problem!

These writers never established a large following, because Google+ is about engaging conversations, rather than reposts of tech articles and easily obtained likes. We have to earn a following. So, people like +Andrew Tarantola get upset because they never pass more than 100 followers, while people who are otherwise unknown, build circles of thousands. So, they write about Google+ and its "2 users," as a means of coming to grips with being so uninteresting.

Think about that for a minute. +Google+ has not failed by any stretch of the imagination. It is a very successful and vibrant community, and I think all the B.S. tech writers are dismissive because they want it easy; they don't think they need to engage or communicate with their readers. This is about people wanting the status quo to continue, as it is easier for them to wrap their head around facebook and twitter because those networks don't require further engagement with real people, other than contests and cheap advertising tricks.

I for one, am tired of it. I think we should all be making sure to get the message out that Google+ isn't going anywhere, and it is time for these tech writers to get with the program, or learn to write without making snarky dismissive comments about platforms that they failed at because they are not interesting enough.

Lets show these tech publications, blogs, and even +Sergey Brin and +Anil Sabharwal that they need to take Google+, and all of its users more seriously!

Thanks to +Charise Strandberg, who happens to have 30k more followers than +Andrew Tarantola (Who has less than 100).

I am a beginner with electronics and MCUs in general and I have found the Arduino invaluable in creating quick prototypes which I later rewrite the code in C and then try to write better smaller optimised code without the Arduino IDE and flashing with a ICSP.

Sometimes it is great to test a one off project and create a fast prototype using some libraries.

It is great to see a article on Hackaday that doesn't dismiss the Arduino and the Arduino community.
 
Speak with those who consider themselves hardcore engineers and you might hear “Arduinos are for noobs” or some other similar nonsense. These naysayers see the platform as a simplified, overpriced, and over-hyped tool that lets you blink a few LEDs or…

When did Google+ turn into this place where a billion people post polls on which phone to buy next, billions of crap pics of their phones launcher with a icon pack and retarded fanboys of all flavours posting and responding utter nonsense.

Where did all these creeps come from?

C4droid

Was getting a bit tired sitting in front of my PC coding in C for my AVR chips so I gave C4droid a try on my tablet works excellent accompanied by Hackers Keyboard.

Can now literally sit anywhere and prototype some code. 
C4droid is a user-friendly (but powerful) C/C++ IDE + C/C++ compiler for An...

Every now and then they decide to pollute my neighborhood with noise. And that irritating siren every day. They have no regard for people living in the neighborhood.
