The wily Amazon phone: It’s the smartphone rumor that won’t quit, and now more circumstantial evidence of its eventual release has surfaced in the wild. On Tuesday, BGR posted what it describes as photos of an Amazon prototype device, along with some spec and feature details shared by “multiple trusted sources.” The website points out that the prototype is ensconced in a shell that makes it impossible to suss out what the smartphone really looks ...

Climbing Legs for Robonaut 2 Headed to International Space Station - We've built and are sending a set of high-tech legs up to the space station for Robonaut 2 (R2), the station's robotic crew member. The new legs are scheduled to launch on the SpaceX-3 commercial cargo flight to the ISS, scheduled to launch Monday, April 14 at 4:58 p.m. EDT from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

These new legs will provide R2 the mobility it needs to help with regular and repetitive tasks inside and outside the space station. The goal is to free up the crew for more critical work, including scientific research. Once the legs are attached to the R2 torso, the robot will have a fully extended leg span of nine feet, giving it great flexibility for movement around the space station. Each leg has seven joints and a device on what would be the foot, called an "end effector," which allows the robot to take advantage of handrails and sockets inside and outside the station. A vision system for the end effectors also will be used to verify and eventually automate each limb's approach and grasp.

Just reimagine that screen with linux instead....  :)
Open your pocketbooks, 4K fans, Toshiba's first Ultra HD laptop is headed your way next Tuesday. The Tokyo-based electronics maker just announced that the Toshiba Satellite P55t will hit U.S. store shelves on April 22, starting at $1,500 for the base model. For all that cash you'll get a 15.6-inch laptop with a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (no word on the specific model), up to 16GB RAM, an AMD Radeon R9 M265X discrete graphics card with 2...

+Richard Adhikari That's not what hairy said, though.  And it's not "uncertainty" that prevents many from moving to Linux... it's the lack of any known hardware vendor (DELL, HP, Lenovo, Acer, Asus, etc) actively vending a Linux computer, promoting it with advertising, getting it into the Walmarts and "office" stores.  Consumers know next to nothing about computers; they take what you give them.
