Let’s face it, Linux has come a very long way. I recently installed Linux on my little brother’s old computer and the only thing he said about it was that “Windows” was running much faster and that it looks different now. What he thought was a different looking, newer Windows XP was actually Linux Mint 4.0.
Once I explained what Linux was, and how it was a completely free alternative to Windows, it was as though he felt like he had the inside scoop on how to get the best speed out of his computer while sticking it to ‘the man’ at the same time.
Through my journey to discover the right Linux distro to install on his computer, I tried nearly every reputable distro I could find.
These are 7 of the best Linux distros out there, especially if you are looking to install this for someone new to linux. The best part is that you can try one by running it off of the LiveCD without having to install anything.
The mouse is a basic part of a gamer’s life. Having a high DPI mouse can be the difference between fragging or being fragged. The new SideWinder mouse can go up to 2000 DPI, which can give you the ultimate precision in FPS games. If you’re not doing anything so intense, it also comes with two other modes: 400 and 800 DPI which can be swapped on the fly. It is also the first mouse to include an LCD screen which informs you of the macros that the mouse is currently using and what resolution you’re using.
Now, if you’re going to get the SideWinder mouse, you might as well pick up the new keyboard solution proposed by Microsoft. The brand new SideWinder X6 keyboard has a switchable key pad, macro keys (absolutely necessary for any hardcore gamer), cruise control and the keys change color to remind you that you’re either gaming or visiting us to get the hottest computer news.
Dell recently made an official announcement that it’s upcoming Inspirion 910 (aka the mini-Inspiron, the Eee PC killer) will come with Ubuntu 8.04 as well as WIndows XP. There is speculation that it might even possibly be running Ubuntu Netbook Remixed, a special flavor of the distribution designed for ultraportable interfaces; in other words, efficiently allowing the user to interact with the programs and OS despite the minimal screen real estate. The picture above shows an early version of Ubuntu Netbook Remix.
The Inspiron 910 will be equipped with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, up to 1GB of RAM, and an 8.9″ screen with a resolution of up to 1024×600. The computer will start at a 4GB SSD and be upgradeable to 16GB, include a built-in camera for all you IM needs, a media card reader, 3 USB ports, and WiFi connectivity.
The PC is rumored to come out in a few days, and to start at $299 for the base model.
The Logitech V550 Nano cordless laser mouse for notebooks—with the innovative Clip-and-Go dock—gives you one less thing to carry.
Features include the Clip-and-Go dock which is compatible with most laptop computers, a Nano-receiver which is barely larger than a coin, and 18 months of battery life. Logitech’s advanced 2.4 GHz wireless dramatically reduces interference with 300 times faster data rate.
Security researcher Dan Kaminsky discovered a vulnerability in the Internet’s Domain Name System. The DNS System allows the translation of names like www.apple.com into IP Addresses such as 22.214.171.124 that the Internet can route.
This vulnerability that Kaminsky found is present in ALL Domain Name Servers, from Microsoft’s version, to Cisco’s, to even the Linux BIND Server. What this means, is that the whole Internet is affected and a savvy attacker could use this to his advantage by poisoning the DNS Cache and then rerouting email traffic, hijacking domains and spoofing websites.
Intel has officially launched the Centrino 2 platform. Shipping from today, it consists primarily of a 45nm Penryn Core 2 Duo processor running from 2.26GHz to 3.06GHz, with a 6MB L2 cache and a 1066MHz front side bus.
The chipset has integrated WiFi-N and Graphics which would be augmented with WiMax support later this year. The biggest boone Intel claims is that the Centrino 2 platform offers 23% more performance at 23% less power as well as 70% faster graphics.
Two key features of the Centrino 2 platform are HUGI (Hurry Up and Get Idle) and VPro, which would let system administrators remotely control laptops via wireless even when the laptop is sleeping.
Gestural control systems like touch screens and facial recognition systems might soon spell doom for the humble computer mouse, a Gartner analyst predicts.
Although the mouse functions adequately enough in a desktop environment, in the mobile and gaming environments its shortcomings are glaring indeed.
For example, on a tiny laptop screen, it is way easier to just use your fingers to touch whatever you want, or if you’re sitting on a couch playing with your console, having to find a horizontal, smooth spot to use a mouse is next to impossible.
Enter the alternatives:
Face & Hand Gesture Recognition - Panasonic, Sony and Canon are using face recognition and hand gestures for the control of tv video and menus instead of a remote.
Emotive Response Recognition - Emotive systems where you can wear a headset and control a computer by simply thinking. A device that can do this is set to hit the market in September.
Touchscreens - Apple iPod and Microsoft Surface have shown us the usability of such interfaces in our daily lives.
There are many many articles out on the net on how to speed up your computer. However, many of those articles are often old and outdated. Today we are going to compile a list of things you can do to speed up your machine.
In some cases, the improvements are so dramatic, that you might even forgo the thought of buying a new computer all together!
The trick to having a fast computer is to ensure that its hardware is functioning as smoothly and as quickly as possible. The second part of it is to ensure that the software you’re running is bloat-free and well coded.
In this article, we will be focusing on software more than hardware as that is the easier of the two to tune-up and requires little financial investment. (That is the point anyway, if you have an unlimited budget, just go out and buy a faster computer or really turbocharge it.)
Seagate has just announced the world’s first 1.5-terabyte 3.5″ hard drive along with a 500-gigabyte 2.5″ hard drive for notebooks to meet the explosive demand for digital media storage
The Barracuda 7200rpm, 1.5TB hard drive is the single largest jump in hard drive capacity in 50 years. A half-terabyte jump from 1TB previously.
The new drives use perpendicular magnetic recording technology, allowing them to use less magnetic particles to store a single bit of data.
The new hard drives will be available in the fourth quarter of this year.
