I'm always fascinated reading articles like this once the 'rumor' has become 'reality'.

Always interesting to see what was got right, what was wide of the mark and what didn't materialise at all. 
Is 'Google+ Photos' is to be made into a standalone product free of any requirement to use Google's social networking service? That what some sources are claiming.

It wasn't really a rumor, it was more of an expectation. Google+ Photos was an excellent service that was being pushed together with a less excellent one. ;)

Interessssssting.

Industry rumours suggest as many as six 2 in 1 Chromebook devices will launch in 2015 — including two models with detachable keyboards made by Google.

Aside from the rumor aspect, I like the two in ones. The Chromebook Flip looks interesting. It would be great if a model was Chrome OS is keyboard mode, and Android in tablet mode.

Having to write about this community drama is difficult for a number reasons.

Firstly, the situation just out-and-out sucks.

There are really great people on both sides doing fantastic work with good intentions. No-one volunteers their time to get involved in drama of this kind. 

No-one

Secondly, I don't know all of the facts. I know what's been said, what has been put forward in e-mails, and what's been suggested by those involved. 

Clearly the Ubuntu Community Council did not reach its decision lightly nor without a lot of angst and soul searching.

And for Kubuntu, having hearing that decision and the reasons behind it, must be… Gah, just as gut-wrenchingly hard to

I understand that specifities (not a real word but it sounds right here) are sometimes less distinct when emotions and feelings are involved. Asides, comments, blunt retorts, instances etc fade from memory but the cumulative effect, the cloud of 'feeling' they leave behind, doesn't, being more weighted than the instances in silo.

(Thirdly, and wholly contrary to some peoples' belief, I hate controversy. I hate seeing it,  I hate being involved in it, I hate writing about it. One post published on my site by someone else five years ago warped some peoples expectation of what OMG! is about.)

=\

Where things go for both the UCC and KC from here I don't know. It's not for me to speculate or pre-empt. I'm not "grabbing the popcorn". 

This is an awful split between two great community teams. 
The leader of Kubuntu has been asked to step down by the Ubuntu Community Council, a decision that raises questions on the distros' future.

 +Valorie Zimmerman , I don't know Jonathan, but I read the mails. And I was shocked by his attitude. He maybe a great leader for Kubuntu project but I think you need someone with good communication skills to deal with the CC and in public. We need Kubuntu, we need to be unite, not to overreact.

The matters is not with Kubuntu project, but only with a guy attitude. I'm sad for him, because I read lots of good things about him, but sometimes, as human, we have some period when we could be aggressive. And it seems that Jon is in that period for his own reasons. But I could be better for our Community (and Kubuntu sub community) if someone else could take in charge the role of spokersperson of Kubuntu for the moment.

It's really hard to deal with people by electronic way of communication... :(

Good news for developers wanting to build new browser experiences for Android! 
Chrome for Android is now largely open source after a drop of more than 100,000 lines of code, including the browser's UI, lands in the Chromium repo.

This post wrote itself. See how many bird puns you can spot! 
Angry Birds' fans are left spitting feathers as the game's official web app is yanked offline.

Is it just me or does the app feel much more responsive/faster in single window mode? 
The Hangouts Chrome app has added a new single window layout with material design touches, offering an alternative to the default floating chat heads mode.

As soon as it comes with no-flash and adblock support it might have a chance again. ;)

Hope it passes, silly to have to go through this. If people want to marry the same sex, they should be able to. Not that it affects me, but many of my friends are gay, and they should have the same rights as me.

Yes, have Skype, but will do a re-set, as I'm sure that will look after things.
