Love Microsoft Teams? Love Linux? Then you won’t love this

Updated Microsoft loves Linux. Unless you are a Linux user who happens to want to use Teams. In that case, you probably aren’t feeling the love quite so much. Users of that other collaboration platform, Slack, have enjoyed a Linux client for some time. Teams users, on the other hand, have had to make do with a browser experience that is often less than ideal. Hence the fifth most requested Teams feature in Microsoft’s UserVoice ...

Is this cuttlefish really all that cosmic? Ubuntu 18.10 arrives with extra spit, polish, 4.18 kernel

Ubuntu 18.10 is about to make its scheduled appearance: Cosmic Cuttlefish will take centre stage from previous incumbent, Bionic Beaver. Looking back, version 18.04 of Ubuntu Linux was a shock to some and featured a desktop not to everyone’s taste, being the first Long Term Support (LTS) release of the distribution without the Unity desktop. The GNOME shell was swapped in, and the Wayland display system swapped out in favour of X.org. Wayland fans will ...

Why the next ‘uncarrier’ needs to be the automotive industry

Autonomous and connected vehicle initiatives have become priorities for established and emerging players alike - Uber, Waymo, Volvo, Tesla, GM, Ford, BMW - the list goes on. Successful connected and autonomous-vehicle strategies will require bulletproof wireless connectivity. Stakeholders in this expanding industry have stars (and dollar signs) in their eyes when they dream about where 5G and edge computing can ...

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite gets official TWRP support

Xiaomi’s device releases have been rather interesting lately. The company has launched a phone in one country and then rebranded into a completely different series with a different name in another country. They released the Redmi Note 6 Pro without lower-end counterparts (like they have in the past), and to continue supporting the Android One program they released two devices at very close price points but with different designs and hardware choices. That last example ...

Google Home can now control your NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV

As an NVIDIA SHIELD TV owner, one of the frustrating things about the device is how it doesn’t work great with Google Home/Google Assistant. Chromecast devices work really well with Google Home, but the SHIELD does not, despite the fact that it has “Chromecast built-in.” For the longest time, it was not possible to start a Netflix video on the SHIELD with Google Home. Finally, that is changing along with some other welcomed features. There ...

OnePlus 6T may work on Verizon Wireless as an LTE-only device

It’s no mystery that success for smartphones in the U.S. is greatly reliant on carriers. Gadget enthusiasts are more than willing to buy devices direct from the OEM, but a majority of sales in the U.S. come from carriers. OnePlus is working on part of that equation by partnering with T-Mobile, and the OnePlus 6T will be compatible with AT&T’s network as well. But that still leaves out Verizon and a massive user base. According ...

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL factory images and kernel sources are going live
