Oculus, the Facebook-owned company that powers the software inside Samsung's virtual reality ambitions (as well as the Oculus Rift headset, sold separately), has disabled its app from working with the Galaxy Note 7 after a number of replacement phones reportedly caught fire over the weekend.
Nokia is all set to launch two new Android smartphones later this year. Nokia’s non-competitive deal with Microsoft ends this year, and the company has already agreed to bring back its brand in collaboration with HMD global. If rumours are anything to go by, Nokia will launch two new smartphones with flagship specifications and a design that we have come to associate with Nokia brand.
The leaked images earlier hinted at Nokia announcing smartphones with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor and colourful polycarbonate shells like Lumia smartphones launched before. HMD Global, Nokia’s contractor licensing the brand, has already promised to deliver that trademark build quality and Nokia-esque design.
At 4:30 in the afternoon on November 15, 1989, an F4 tornado ripped through Huntsville, Alabama killing 21 people. It could have been much worse save for the quick thinking of the people running the after-school program at Jones Valley Elementary. They took the children under the stairs as soon as the power went out. They survived, though the top floor was torn from the building. A mother out front who had come to pick up her child was among the 21 casualties.
That was my brother's school. My church and several others were destroyed. My route to school changed for months while they rebuilt and cleared the area. These are the sorts of stories you collect living in the #1 place for tornadoes per capita. And it is these stories that instill a healthy respect for tornadoes, and heeding tornado warnings.

At Couchbase, a developer advocate helps developers become effective users of a technology, product, API, or platform. This can be done by sharing knowledge about the product using the medium where developers typically hangout. Some of the more common channels include blogs, articles, webinars, and presentations at conferences and meetups. Answering questions on forums and Stack Overflow, conversations on social media, and seeking contributors for open source projects are some other typical activities that a developer advocate performs on a regular basis.
The Linux world offers an incredible range of free and open source tools to do everything you can think of and lots of things you probably haven’t ever thought of. In this roundup we highlight seven command line utilities you probably haven’t run into before and we’ve got everything from monitoring file system events to running re-attachable ssh sessions to printing banners.
I recently wrote an article featuring 25 DevOps vendors worth watching. However, in the world of DevOps, there are an awful lot of good tools that don't really have a vendor attached, and I thought it was time to give the open source tools their due.
While I wrote that there are tools that don't have vendors, there are vendors that are attached to some of these open source tools. Those vendors provide development support, along with, in some cases, customer support and even proprietary versions of some of the tools that exist alongside their open source cousins. As long as there was an open source version that wasn't "crippleware," it was eligible for the cut.

Hi guys, I am running Linux Mint 17.3 on my laptop. I have several applications installed and their configurations on my current machine. I am planning to buy a new laptop with probably better and different hardware specs (graphics, processor etc). What I want is to migrate all my data (all configs and installed programs) as is to the new machine, so when I am done I can start using Linux Mint in the very same manner as I am doing now; without having to download anything again or change configurations as per my requirements again.
Suggest anything? I looked into Systemback but my sblive file is too big to be made into an iso (>4 GB). I have no idea what other softwares are available to help me ease the process.submitted by /u/johnwick76
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.3 is now the latest and most advanced build of the powerful office suite
I don't know whether its a trick of the eyes (of running a stock system vs a used one) or not, but I couldn't help but notice that as soon as a desktop start aging (we start using it by installing lots of software), it becomes less responsive day by day. It seems very fast when we try a live version or it is newly installed.
On a Windows system, I can understand the need for defragmentation. What this means is that as programs like LibreOffice, Firefox, Gimp, etc. keep saving the data on your disk, the actual data bytes on the disk may be stored (fragmented) in different places, thus the entire system slows down with usage as each program has to gather the bits from different places on the disk which is time consuming. The Windows cure for this is de-fragmentation, i.e. a maintenance task to gather all those bytes at a single place, so the programs then start working faster.
How is linux WRT fragmentation? Does my ext4 system require de-fragmentation of any kind? What else can I do to speed up my system (except formatting my drive and installing the whole thing again, of course!)?submitted by /u/rms_returns
