Hey, either Macs don't count much on the desktop, or we may have to finally lay the "year of the Linux desktop" joke to rest.
Google's low-cost Chromebooks outsold Apple's range of Macs for the first time in the US recently. While IDC doesn't typically break out Windows vs. Chromebook sales, IDC analyst Linn Huang...

Het mag dan wel een Linux systeem zijn, het is geen GNU/Linux systeem. Het is een Linuxsysteem zonder vrijheden.

It's just an illusion (ooooh ah ah). The Verge: Ikea's catalog now uses 75 percent computer generated imagery. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIw3tDXrh8.
Browsing through an Ikea catalog is basically a modern adult's version of playing make-believe, letting you imagine just how gorgeous your apartment will never be. And it turns out, an Ikea catalog...

I've been hearing too many claims of "3D printing is the future", "ebooks are the future", "bitcoin is the future" blah blah... so I'm going to have a rant ;-)

That to me is missing the bigger picture. Businesses which enable ordinary people to build, create, share and perform economic transactions without being giant mega-corps are the future.

#shapeways is not a 3D printing company, its an efficient web based manufacturing service business. It provides very small runs to a massive customer base. What makes Shapeways isn't 3D printing it's the rest of the process. It happens to ofter 3D printing - it could equally offer etching, CNC, PCB making, printing, woodturning, resin casting whatever. providing it can do it to the same model.

A lot of other big success stories fit the same mould (although not always with the same degree of popularity with the customers 8-) ) - Paypal, eBay, Amazon marketplace. etc are all about the same thing - a huge, low volume per user, service.

A lot of open government is also about the same thing, even the pirate party is sort of an early prototype of trying to scale policy making out this way.

As is often said "In a gold rush the people who make money are the people who sell shovels."

By Duncan McKean. Cross-posted from Opensource.com. I get asked a lot by people who are interested in helping out open source projects, but have absolutely no programming skills. What can they do? Well, here are a few ideas how non-programmers can contribute to open source projects. It is worth noting that it is best to contribute to software that you actually use yourself. That way you feel the benefits.

Ben zeer gehecht aan m'n Marokkaanse muts goed voor je hipstergehalte maar in een business setting? Dan misschien beter een verwarde ongewassen baard alla RMS ;)

Terloops +Gregory DK: de Chromecast bevalt me wel,  nifty peace of hardware/software. Alleen hoogst irritant dat je nog steeds geen lokale content kunt streamen, tenzij via geauthoriseerde (en bloated + betalende) apps. Maar in Android 4.4 zijn toch indicaties voor een aankomende 'native' ondersteuning voor het streamen van je smartphone of tablet (alla AppleTV/Airplay, of eigenlijk wat AllCast (Koushik Dutta, CM) deed totdat de toepassing gesaboteerd werd door Google).

Allcast staat in de Play Store maar heeft geen ondersteuning voor Chromecast meer. Dit jaar zullen er wel meer apps beschikbaar komen.

This is sad.

With all the posturing Google has done over the NSA stuff, and having encouraged people to sign the petition to require a warrant for email snooping (which I heartily agree with), this just makes Google look hypocritical.
