http://tonyrs-blog.blogspot.com

Ive tried using Mac as an alternative to Windows, but I guess it just wasn't for me. At least Apple implores its users to 'Think Different,' Microsoft insists everyone 'be Genuine.' So what would be their catch-phrase be, 'Be Authentic?'

TV. We all watch it. Chances are you might have a DVR hooked up to your TV so you can watch it at any time. If you pay for cable or satellite access, you are probably getting a little tired of those bills as well.

From Freedom came Excellence

http://beyondart.wordpress.com

KDE Control Centre

http://www.linuxjournal.com

Many distros have their own setup tools; SUSE's YaST is so all-powerful that SUSE users probably have little reason to run the KDE Control Centre at all. Most of the other distros, such as Kubuntu, have realised what a great tool it is and rely on it for most configuration tasks. Kubuntu has incorporated it into its own setup menu, which you can access using the spanner (wrench to American cousins) button on the panel.

OLPC XO-1 - an indepth review

http://www.bunniestudios.com

If I were to make one general comment about the OLPC XO-1, it’s that its mechanical design is brilliant. It’s a fairly clean-sheet redesign of traditional notebook PC mechanics around the goal of survivability, serviceability, and robustness (then again, I’ve never taken apart any of the ruggedized notebooks out there).
