KVM with VGA passthrough working. All the three screens, keyboards and mice are connected to the same Mac Pro. The rightmost display is dedicated to Arch Linux which is running natively on the Mac. The middle display is dedicated to Ubuntu on top of KVM and leftmost display is dedicated for Windows 8 on top of KVM.

The machine has three display adapters, so every operating system has dedicated display adapter. Also all the operating systems have dedicated usb host, so they have direct access to keyboard, mouse and other usb peripherals.

The performance of this setup is actually quite amazing as you can play 3D games on the virtualized Windows without any problems and at the same time use the other two operating systems to do whatever you want.

I've been using Google Nexus 7 for almost a week now. Like every review has probably told you before, this is quite excellent device for the price, even though the price in Finland is higher than in the rest of the world.

It has been great pleasure to see that number of tablet-optimized apps is growing larger every day. Apps optimized for phones are usable, but it is nice to have something more to use that extra screen space.

Unfortunately Google Play content is not available here. And because this is small country, there isn't much of local content either. I tested Helsingin Sanomat app (for those of you who don't know, it's the biggest newspaper in Finland) on the Nexus, and it was pretty lame compared to iPad app. First of all, the screen orientation is locked. And to make it worse, part of the content is in horizontal position and other part in vertical position! How bad design is that? Another problem is that there is no zoom!

Of course there are lots of great apps, so if you don't want books and such from Google and you are happy with such as Spotify and Kindle apps, then this is great device. Screen is good, battery lasts for ages and the interface is really responsible compared to any other android device.

I was hiking in Nuuksio national park in Finland with my friends.

Unfortunately just few minutes after taking this photo it started to rain heavily. After walking almost two hours in rain we all were soaking wet, our map was ruined and also two phones got too much humidity.

But in the end it was a good trip.

Vihdoinkin kuvia Alppihupellukselta 2014! Kohteenahan oli siis Les Trois Vallées Ranskassa, maailman suurin laskettelualue. Kuusi rinnepäivää sekä bussimatkat täynnä pelkkää voittoa ja parhautta.

Ihan hyvä käännös Androidin viestit-sovelluksessa. Tykkään erityisesti siitä, että molemmista "näytä tiedot"-kohdista aukeaa eri tiedot.

Aivan mahtava uutinen, vihdoinkin! Toivottavasti tämä on yhtä hyvä kuin Nokian puhelimissa jo vuosia ollut ilmainen navigointi.
 
Google Mapsin ilmainen navigointi rantautui nyt myös Suomeen! Navigointi toimii ja puhuu suomea Android-laitteissa. Puheopastuksen kieli riippuu puhelimen kielivalinnasta - jos haluaa suomenkielisen opastuksen kannattaa siis valita kieleksi suomi.

Nyt nousi täällä tablettikuume aivan uusiin ulottuvuuksiin. Googlen eilen julkaisema Galaxy Nexus 7 vaikuttaa aivan loistavalta laitteelta, varsinkin kun katsoo 200 dollarin hintalappua.

Tähän asti olen ollut vahvasti sitä mieltä että 7 tuumaan näyttö on liian pieni tablettiin, eihän se ole kuin muutaman tuuman isompi kuin puhelimessani. Tämä mielipide ei vieläkään ole täysin muuttunut, mutta kun hintaa on alle puolet uusimman iPadin hinnasta, alkaa sitä väkisin miettiä tarvitseeko välttämättä muutamaa lisätuumaa mihinkään. Keskimääräinen kirjan sivu taitaa kuitenkin olla tuota pienempi, joten lukemiseen laitteen luulisi sopivan vallan mainiosti.

Integrointi Googlen Play storeen vaikuttaa olevan hyvällä tasolla. Musiikki, elokuvat, kirjat ja sovellukset ovat helposti saatavilla, kaikkialla missä vain on langaton yhteys. Toisaalta nämä palvelut eivät ole toistaiseksi saatavilla Suomessa, mikä on hyvin vakava puute. Ilman Play Storen valikoimaakin laitteeseen on sentään saatavilla 600000 erilaista ohjelmaa ja peliä, joten jokaiselle löytyy jotakin.

Vaikka laitte sinällään kilpailee lähinnä Kindle Firen kanssa, suomessa se voi hyvinkin haastaa myös Applen tabletin. Niin ja tietysti Microsoft Surface on myös tulilinjalla, ellei sen hinta tule olemaan vielä Nexusta halvempi. 

Toivottavasti Nexus 7 saapuu Suomeen viimeistään syksyllä ja hinta pysyttelee 200 euron tuntumassa. Jos vielä Google Play -palvelut saadaan tänne samaa matkaa, näyttää laitteen suosio varmalta.
