Does anyone else find this shameful? The last throws of Nokia, a once great company with thousands of employees that basically no longer exists.

Thousands of workers lost their jobs in the blink of an eye to protect Microsoft's bottom line. Not because of market forces, but because of the decisions of a stooge CEO who sold them out to his former employer. Elop's decision to adopt Windows Phone exclusively basically left the company ripe for acquisition, which he readily approved.

The decision to acquire Nokia probably stemmed from fear that it would start producing Android devices, something that likely would have saved it as there is a huge market for quality Android phones at reasonable prices. Imagine all of that beautiful Nokia hardware running an operating system that isn't 3 years behind. Hindsight is hindsight, but I believe that if they would have adopted Android those 7,800 people would still be employed with a fighting chance. Microsoft clearly had no plan to grow the platform as they've let it linger and rot, and now have basically given up. To essentially bankrupt a company to damage another platform is a level of greed that is downright astonishing to me.
Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella is writing off the company’s Nokia devices purchase and pulling back from being a smartphone manufacturer

Yet another post from someone who fails to understand either business or tech.  Or both.

The Chrome parade continues. 
Acer's Chromebase will bring Chrome OS to a 21-inch all-in-one later this year.

+Kevin Burns​ must be personal preference. I really like the looks of the CB3 and CB5. I generally don't like Asus' design language and Toshiba's looks to me like a very poor attempt at copying a Macbook Air. Oddly, I kinda Like Samsung's design, including the fake leather look on the CB2.

Are there any remotely stable Lollipop ROMs for the AT&T LTE version available yet?

i use liquid smooth. it's 5,0,2. it's good. cyanideL is based off CM and has more customization than LS, but LS is on the Slim base which i personally find more stable especially in low signal areas. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3016553

+Blair Jones the HP 14 is always being discounted it seems. This model has only recently seen discounts in preparation for a new model.

In this article, CNET says "plans are afoot to launch devices in the US market, with Canonical hoping to make an announcement in the first half of this year." Does anyone know any more about this or what their source might be?
The BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition will be sold in limited-run flash sales, with several sales expected in the coming weeks.

Is anyone else unable to paste directly into Google Keep? I haven't been able to for the past few days. I can select text and then paste over it, but not directly into a blank field. This is happening in Chrome OS, Linux, and Windows.

$149.99 for a new 13.3" Asus. Not a bad deal if you have a Micro Center nearby.

+Michael Webber Agree wholeheartedly with you on the keyboard.  I have wide fingertips and the keyboard on my ASUS 13.3 takes my keystrokes well.

Having a frustrating problem with a fresh Ubuntu Gnome 14.10 install on my Vaio FZ-190. At random times, my web browser (Chrome or Firefox) will stop loading web pages. It doesn't say no connection, just endless loading at blank white screens. Other devices on the same network are working fine. The problem is temporarily resolved by turning wifi off and back on. Sometimes that works for several hours and sometimes several minutes before it happens again. I've been running Xubuntu 14.10 for the past few weeks without issue. I'd appreciate any thoughts.

In the near future it's possible that we may not have to reboot our Chromebooks for updates.  #Linux #opensource

Well, probably not the near future.

This is mainly intended for high-availability servers, where services would go down temporarily if you reboot (However, situations like that should already have enough redundancy in place so that a reboot would not affect availability).

Additionally, most of what desktop users make use of are the userspace utilities, and not the kernel itself. This may lead to a sort of warm reboot like Android uses, where only the init system is totally reloaded and the kernel stays in place, but I'm not sure it would be worth devoting the time to minimizing reboots for devices that can boot in ~7 seconds.

Looks like Google can stop working on that Android port. Should work great on Chromebooks.

Who would have thought you could find great Chinese food in Hartford City? The food is always hot and delicious and the owners are friendly. I try to eat here at least once whenever I'm in town. Highly recommended.
