"Ubuntu’s smartphone platform will grant full desktop access once docked"

 

 

 

That's what made me think its interesting..

 

 

Very interesting article, Hazel.

I love computer maintenance tasks.

Some of my favorite programs:

Wordpad -basic word processing

Notepad - temporary clipboard and basic scripting module

Windows Media Player 12- video, music and online radio player

Windows Media Center - live TV, local FM radio

CCleaner- handy computer maintenance tool

 

If something fails to work after using the registry cleaner, use SYSTEM RESTORE.

I think this ubuntu phone will probably be a failure but I admire them for trying. Android and iOS control this market and its proving to be very hard for a 3rd company to compete(just look at Microsofts failed efforts to gain traction). I'm also passed this idea of one device to do everything. None of them seem to work out(windows 8 fails in this regard in my opinion).

 

I have an andorid tablet and its great.

I have a windows desktop and its great.

I have an apple phone and its great.

 

I don't need one substandard device to take the place of all these devices. The future is the cloud. I can login to Skydrive and have all my docs, pictures, ect. I login to chrome and all of my bookmarks, tabs, and settings are there. I can use these services on all of my devices. I don't necessarily need one device "mega device" when all of my data is available everywhere.

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

I sold my touchpads for $200 a piece. Bought a nexus 7 and haven't looked back. Jellybean is an awesome OS. That said their is a team working on porting the new "open" web OS to the nexus 7. I may play with it some later:

I liked webOS. I only sold them because app development died and nothing was being ported to it. I use my tablet mostly for videos and games. It just didn't have the apps android does.

yup, I understand that one, the nexus ports are nice but they're both still pretty alpha. But the U-phones will be linux 3.x kernel and use open-l3 drivers for hardware (one hopes) so makes the phone modem able to be activated in O-webOS … or at least give me a new customizable OS for me to play with. But I really don't like the new GUI for U on desktop so...
