Interesting news about Google+ becoming more streamlined today. Cautiously optimistic. Just hope they nail the streams part. This current mix of communities and pages and circles and people and... is a bit convoluted. 

But let's not do Buzz again, eh? ;)

Agree on the buzz, that was bad.
Someone needs to make a song "bring the buzz back" in some semblance of who let the dogs out.

If you want an #UbuntuPhone  you'll be able to nab one tomorrow from 8AM GTM on the +BQ website — but you'll need to b-fast! 
The next Ubuntu Phone flash sale will take place tomorrow February 26, Spanish mobile maker Bq has announced.

Hellz yeah! 
 
The Chromium OS open-source project benefits a lot from other projects¹ and the chromium team loves to contribute back to the open-source community whenever it can.

One example among others is the latest stable release of BlueZ, the official Linux Bluetooth library² which features several enhancements to the GATT protocol stack committed by the chromium team.
This will hopefully improve Bluetooth Low Energy support on all Linux-based devices including Chromebooks.

So, YO! hit the Android Apps for Chrome OS section last month[1] but vanished shortly after (I think it has something to do with Yo! undergoing a change of direction, to make itself more than just a way to send Yo!, etc).[2]

Anyhow, Viewneo Player has been added[3] recently to take its place.

Don't get excited by the logo or name though — it's not a video player! ;)

Okay it is, but not for normal videos. It's for digital signage malarky.

Aww man, OMG! Ubuntu! used to be excellent. I don't know why or when people stopped engaging with us. Traffic still goes up, but people sending us tips has all but ground to a halt. 
OMG! Ubuntu! reader Cyrill sent us through a little mockup of what Ubuntu would look like with tabs inside the panel. He says "On my netbook's 10 inch screen, every single pixel is important. And as there is barely no global menu for Chromium (this changed apparently in Natty), i was wondering how it would look if tabs were using that free space."

I think it's also because there isn't really much going on for regular users in Ubuntu (desktop) land. Canonical is focusing heavily on the phone version currently and the desktop only receives just important fixes and small updates. Most changes are still in development and not visible to the end user.

Because of this, most news posted on OMG right now isn't really that interesting to me.. The last news that found interesting was that video with the convergence status, and the BQ phone. After that it was just articles about app updates. I know, it isn't your fault, but it does make me visit omg less frequently.
I miss the articles were I found out about new apps or interesting tweaks..

And people say desktop Linux is stagnant! 
If recent screenshots of next month's GNOME 3.16 release are anything to go by, it'll be the best release yet.

If you like your Chromebooks like you like your {insert high end, best in class product}, you'll be happy to hear this... 
Google has confirmed that a second generation Chromebook Pixel will go on sale 'soon'.

VLC 3.0 will feature Chromecast support at last.

While the timing isn't clear for when the feature might land for Android, iOS, or even desktop flavors of VLC, it's a good sign that the VLC team have been working on the feature for the upcoming 3.0.0 release.
In June of last year the awesome hands behind the popular VLC media player confirmed their intention to support Chromecast, Google's then semi-new media streaming dongle, in its suite of apps.
