$133 Flip, $89 Hisense. RK3288 Chromebooks can be found at awesome deals.
 
How about an $89.99 Chromebook offer?

$60 off! Today, Woot has a 11.6' Hisense C11 Chromebook. The Hisense entry level device is powered by a Rockchip processor, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC storage. The C11 model sells new for $150. The model here is a manufactured refurbished unit.

The Hisense Chromebook is a great option for those looking for just a cheap way to get on the net fast with a nice quiet laptop device with a great battery life.

+Riku Voipio  I fear that will severely hinder their server ambitions. No-one is used to using ARM stuff like x86.

German cars with specialty tools. 14mm triple square bit. Can't even seem to find one of these locally. Grrr.

At least Amazon can deliver one tomorrow. Sigh.

I have the compression tool and everything else needed. This isn't my first time changing brakes, just the first on the Audi.

Cool!
 
Thanks to +Rob Herring​, Android running on a virgl 3d enabled VM. It's really cool that someone took the effort to make this work. The android-x86 folks are also converging on this work.

Nice quote from OSNews:

"There's something happening with Chromebooks that seems to take place much outside of the sphere of the technology press - in schools now, but once kids have them, they'll find their way elsewhere. We may indeed be entering a post-PC world, but it's not based on tablets.

It's Chromebooks."

I have never seen a Chromebook in the wild outside Linux conferences. I'm guessing different market in the UK/EU then!

Choices, choices, choices.

Started looking at travel schedules for spring, and things aren't aligning very nicely.

Collab Summit is the week right before ELC. Well, that's easy: Skip Collab. It's gone more corporate lately and I don't feel like I'm missing much if not attending.

ELC is the week after. That's fine, but it's also spring break for our school district, which usually means family activities. Had ELC been local I would likely have been able to go. Bummer.

So, it's starting to look like I'll make neither event. My liver thanks me.

Hm, that's an option I hadn't considered. Will investigate.

Drool. Strong urge to order one.
 
First Airtops off the production line. Compulab starts accepting orders next week. As usual, first we fulfill pre-orders, and once production catches up with demand we make the product available through Amazon.
To pre-order Airtop please visit http://airtop-pc.com/purchase-airtop/

They are doing assembled systems too. The NUCs are fine but not silent.

I'm guessing not too many people here on G+ are into hockey or have followed the debacle around John Scott and the All Star Game.

Partly to poke fun at the NHL organization, a grassroots effort to vote John into the All-Star game happened. Further, he also got voted captain of the western conference.

The NHL has been trying to shut it down, likely pushing Arizona Coyotes to trade him to a different team, which then directly assigned him to the AHL, the minor league.

John is an enforcer, the player that usually stands up and takes fights for his team mates if needed (and to energize the team). He doesn't match the skill level of the rest of the All-Star participants, but dammit, he got voted in and nobody deserves to be treated like he has by the league he's been playing in for 7 years.

He authored an article that was published today with his view of what happened. Well worth reading even if you're not fanatical about hockey.

#JohnScott  
One of the reasons I’ve made it as long as I have in the league is because I specifically know I’m not an All-Star.

I've been sceptical of OpenPOWER in the past, mostly given the false starts of Linux-dedicated POWER hardware from IBM in the past, and how power.org didn't really go anywhere. I'll be the first one to admit that they've done a lot of stuff right and seem to be on a great path though, so I've been proven wrong. Cool stuff.

It looks like they're having some good success with their platform commercially too, which of course will help going forward. :)
 
Thanks to the absolutely amazing efforts of the LCA video team, they’ve already (only a few days after I gave it) got the video from my linux.conf.au 2016 talk up! Abstract In mid 2014, IBM released the first POWER8 based systems with the new Free and…

More on the laptop-killing USB C cables.
 
Here are some pictures of the torn down SurjTech 3M cable that fried my Pixel.

This is a follow up to my review here : 
https://www.amazon.com/review/R2XDBFUD9CTN2R/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

Visual observations :
1. Red wire to G. Black wire to V. So wrong.
2. Missing SuperSpeed wires on the back of the connector. Only 4 wires in total. This cable was advertised as a USB 3.1 SuperSpeed cable but is entirely missing the TX/RX
3. Generally a poor job with the soldering of the wires.

Other observations using a multimeter : 
1) 10 kΩ resistor instead of 56 kΩ resistor used.
2) resistor hooked up as a Pull-down instead of a pull-up

I usually don't reshare Benson's reviews (follow him instead), but this one is bad enough that it deserves some signal boosting.
 
Here's my last #USB   #TypeC  review for a little while.
tl;dr: DANGER. PELIGRO. BAD CABLE. PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS.

Surjtech's A-to-C cable seriously damaged a Pixel 2 laptop and two USB PD analyzers.

The fact that this can happen is illustrative of how new technologies introduce new failure modes, and why adopting them quickly is a matter for bleeding-edge enthusiasts. Against whom does the consumer have recourse? Amazon for selling defective product? Cable manufacturer? Google, for not designing sufficient failsafes around the USB-C ports?
