Meet Blueberry, Linux Mint's new Bluetooth setup tool.

The Linux Mint team weren't happy with current Bluetooth tools shipping with their releases so they made their own.
What do you do when the default Bluetooth confirmation utility is less than ideal for your users? Why you dive in and improve it! This is Linux after all!

The new default wallpaper for Ubuntu 15.04 is here.

While it's not a massive difference (surprise), the new Vivid Vervet default wallpaper iterates on the orgami-esque folds of the 14.04 and 14.10 default wallpaper, and there's a crisp greyscale version too.
The Ubuntu 15.04 default wallpaper has been revealed. It once again uses origami folds over a purple gradient but has a distinct feel, too.

I'm surprised by their decision to use this wallpaper. I find it quite ugly. Its also quite dark and unwelcoming. I hope they fix it before the final release.

A new app is bringing Android notifications to the GNOME desktop.

Like Pushbullet and KDE Connect, Nuntius brings your Android notifications right to your GNOME desktop with Bluetooth.
You'll shortly be able to view your Android notifications on the GNOME desktop thanks to a new application in development.

Here's something that might help out any of our readers on are on slow and/or capped connections. 

It's new Chrome extension from Google that compresses webpages before they're loaded in Chrome, reducing their size to both speed things up and save bandwidth. 

Give it a whirl in Google Chrome or Chromium and let us know how you get on! 

#chrome #google #linux
 
If you use Google's Data Saver feature on Chrome for Android or iOS you'll love the search giant's latest Chrome Extension.

When installed and turned it squeezes webpages down by optimising images, javascript and other files so that pages load faster and help save on bandwidth.

ARM has the advantage that it's really low power consumption, and with the new 64 bit ARM chips they rapidly catching up with Intel. Already high end ARM chips outperform Atoms and Celerons and they are now beating some Corei3 and Corei5 chips.
