Android App – PushBullet Review

The Good: PushBullet transmits items from desktop PC to Android device quickly and reliably. It makes use of the Android notification bar, and even lets you share devices with others so they can push items to you.

Urban Dictionary: linuxing

  • Linuxing

A word that seems complicated therefore tricks your girlfriend into thinking that your doing something very important without upsetting her. (you must install LINUX on your computer for this to work she will then think that this word has something to do with it)

Girlfriend speaking:”Oh come here you, big sexy Winnie the pooh beast, I wanna give a nice big BJ…”

You answer: “Oh sweety, I’d love to but not now I’m LINUXING” miraculously she will go away not being upset.

However, while this is the first really touch-friendly version of Ubuntu, it’s incomplete in its mobile incarnation. For a start, there are hardly any smartphone or tablet apps for it yet, as is to be expected at this early stage. But there’s a far greater omission: Ubuntu Touch’s ability to run as full-blown desktop Ubuntu when hooked up to an HDMI monitor and Bluetooth keyboard.

Little Mir made

This is because Ubuntu’s new mobile-friendly display server, Mir, is not quite ready yet…
