When the Raspberry Pi first hit the scene, the appeal and demand couldn't be avoided. But that being said, I personally didn't forsee the absolute explosion of mini-PCs that would follow. Simply put, if you are in the market to build a quaint little PC, you sure do have a great selection to peruse, with SolidRun... Read more...
AdventureOS is a game that appears to be simultaneously incredibly clever and delightfully adorable. It’s a 2.5D RPG in the style of “metroidvania” that generates rooms within the game based on your hard drive’s folder tree and the types of files inside them. Thus, every person’s gaming...

Hand of Thief's goal is to lead you to financial ruin by... Read more...
Linus Torvalds once said that if Microsoft ever made applications for Linux “it means I’ve won”. Now that Microsoft has released a version of Office for Android, Torvalds' dream has come true. Sort of. It’s likely that Torvalds envisioned Microsoft Office on a desktop build of... Read more...
Intel’s Open Source Technology Center, in conjunction with CircuitCo, is developing a low-cost, embedded-type motherboard based on the Intel Atom processor called the MinnowBoard.

Since its introduction decades ago, TCP has become an integral part of our networking, whether we're connecting to another PC in the same building, or out to a remote server to fetch a...

Linus Torvalds is a man of many emotions. At times, he's got a great sense of humor - he did just name the 3.11 Linux kernel 'Linux for Workgroups', after all. Other times, and especially if you're a developer making his life harder, he can be less-than-pleasant, as has been evidenced time and time again. As much as I... Read more...
For a number of good reasons, "cloud storage" is all the rage. Being able to store your data online in order to access it virtually anywhere is the epitome of convenience.
