Sounds interesting, wonder if my old x40 would be able to handle it, runs peppermint at the moment which I've setup like a web based OS.
 
New program installs Chromium OS on old computers

Good news: If you have an old computer lying around, there is now a way to turn it into a Chromebook. 

CloudReady is a program that can be installed onto almost any computer, PC or Mac, turning it into a Chromebook. Using a USB you can quickly get up and running, transforming your computer into a Chromebook or Chromebox. Learn more about CloudReady by Neverware at http://www.neverware.com

What do you think? Would you turn your old computer into a Chromebook?

Goodbye Ulephone be touch 2, I'm sending mine back to amazon today, wifi issue, poor radio (mobile data), white splotches on the screen and that is only after 3 weeks, I don't think this is built to last.  if this company want to survive they need to stop releasing so many phones and just concentrate on make one or two really good handsets with updates that address the issues that users are having, I don't think this is their plan though. Back to my Galaxy S2 and Desire 510

I guess I'm giving the retailer (Gearbest) too much benefit of doubt. The phone developed the fault around 2 weeks of use.

I'm just about to create a case. Just wanna get the facts before staring the case fully

When Tracking Goes Wrong
I visited IKEA's website because I wanted to buy a new floor lamp, a short time later, I got a SMS from a scammer who were trying to give me a IKEA gift certificate. 

The question is... how the heck did my data about visiting IKEA end up in the hands of a scammer? Read the details here: https://www.baekdal.com/blog/when-tracking-goes-wrong/
I have been writing a lot about privacy, tracking and all the problems we have with it. For instance, in 'The Blocking Problem', I summarize the whole issue around ad blockers, and in 'What Is Tracking And What Isn't Tracking' I take you on a tour of both the good and the bad types of tracking.

Have a be touch 2 just arrived yesterday bought on http://amazon.co.UK, having issues with the WiFi dropping or wifi performance going very slow, doing a test it looks like as you move away from the router the wifi performance drops, moving 15 feet away into the other room I got dropped off the network although the signal in the status bar is showing good strength, moving upstairs back on the network but performance is down to 10%, see screenshots below. I have a friend who bought the phone at the same time as me and he is experiencing this same issue but I cannot see any other mention of this.

Pizza's were fine, nothing special and quite pricey compared to other places in the greater Lisbon area. The service wasn't great, the person serving seemed to be annoyed with having to deal with us.

It'll never be the same as the old one and for good reason, the old one was nearly always very sparsely populated which was the beauty of it. Update: 08/04/16 Down for breakfast, very tasty eggs benedict and a fine cup of tea. Was here very early just after it opened so it was nice and peaceful.

I was only here for the flea market so not sure how it is as a pub but it works really great for this event, lovely Italian ladies serving delicious coffee and Italian hot chocolate, recommended for any chocaholic. Some interesting stalls and items on sale.

Small, rough and not great beer selection but that's part of it's charm, just not what I'm into. Some good tunes been played though.

Great afternoon here with my son, very friendly staff. Was interesting to see how it all works and nice to get some delicious chocolates on the tour, good fun decorating our chocolate elephants, as this was a work event we were also treated to some refreshments at the end.
