  1. Meet The GPD Pocket, A 7-inch Ubuntu Laptop The GPD Pocket Do you have small hands? Are you a Borrower? Do you consider 10-inch netbooks to be monstrous? If so, the GPD Pocket may be right up your (very miniature) street. GPD Pocket, 7″ Laptop The GPD Pocket is a 7-inch laptop that’s small enough to slip in to a pocket — and it will apparently be available in two versions: with Windows 10, and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. As reported on Liliputing, GPD (the company who makes the device) is currently only showing the device off a few fancy renders and photos with a prototype unit. But GPD has form for releasing other (similar) devices, like the GPD Win, and Android gaming portables, so although a novelty this latest device is unlikely to be outright vapourware. The GPD Pocket touts some impressive specifications for the size, including a quad-core Intel Atom x7-Z8700 processor (the same one used in the Microsoft Surface 3), 4GB RAM and a high-res IPS touch display: 7-inch IPS touch display Intel Atom x7-Z8700 (quad-core @ 1.6GHz) 4GB of RAM 128GB of storage 1x USB Type-C 1x USB 3.0 Mini HDMI Out MicroSD Card slot Courage jack (“headphone port”) 7000 mAh battery The overall dimensions of the device mean you won’t be able to hammer away on a full-sized keyboard, but the chiclet style QWERTY one included (plus a ThinkPad-like mouse nub as there’s no room for a touchpad) looks perfectly serviceable for tweets, forum posts and some basic web browsing. Since I doubt anyone would be using this device as their primary device issues to do with the keyboard size, or lack of palm rest, etc, are unlikely to be primary considerations. No, the GPD Pocket is, as the name suggests, intended as the sort of device you literally slide into your pocket as you head out the door. The “bad” news is that, like everything these days, GPD plan to crowdfund the GPD Pocket over on Indiegogo sometime in February. Currently there’s no indication of pricing or release date, but providing it’s not too weighted at the high-end it could make a nice midrange alternative to Linux hobbyists. Source
  2. How To Install Linux On An Android Device Unleash the full potential of your Android device by installing Linux OS on it Installing Linux on Your device involve four steps which are -installing BusyBox, installing Terminal Emulator, placing required files in SD card and finally running the Linux OS. Step 1: Installing the BusyBox libraries Before you start you’ll need: Android Device 4 GB SD card(or more) Root Access Full Backup of your data(for recovery if something goes wrong) You can get BusyBox from Play Store by clicking here. All you have to do is to download and install it. Step 2: Installing a Terminal You’ll need a terminal emulator for using your Linux OS. Installing this is recommended. Step 3:Putting required files in place Connect your device to your PC (remember to enable the USB mount), and then download this file and this file. Create a new folder in your SD card and name it Ubuntu(or whatever you like) and then extract these files in the folder. Step 4: You’re almost ready Go back to the Terminal app and write “su’ again. Then write “cd /mnt/sdcard”. To confirm everything is working try to write “ls” and see if you can recognize your folders (you might find the ubuntu folder as well). To start our ubuntu write “cd /ubuntu” and then “sh ubuntu.sh”. This will execute many procedures which are trying to set your system. It will request to enter a resolution. Use number x number format to express it. For example: 600×400 is the proper format. For the best appearance and performance I suggest 800×480. Now everything is done. The ubuntu system is running , however we can’t see it. To see it , we must use a VNC app. We can download it from Play Store. Thats it! However if you feel any difficulty in any of the steps or require further information, you may drop your query in the comments. Source
  3. 5 Reasons to Install Linux on Your Laptop You can choose something other than MacOS or Windows 10 when it comes to an operating system for your computer. If you’re prepared to be a little more adventurous, Linux has plenty of great features that will save you time and make working a little less dull. The best part is that Live Installations allow you to try out the software before you wipe your entire hard drive. Linux comes in various flavors called distros (distributions) and it’s up to you to determine which one you opt for. Ubuntu is by far the most popular desktop distro and is a good place to start for beginners, so we’ve focused on that one here, but once you’ve grasped the basics feel free to explore the pros and cons of some others out there. 1) You don’t have to ditch Windows (or OS X) You don’t need to wave goodbye to Windows (or macOS) to give Linux a try—Ubuntu can run very happily on a dual-boot system or even straight from a USB drive. Follow the instructions provided on the Ubuntu website to get up and running: you need a blank DVD or a USB stick at least 2GB in size, and the setup process is very straightforward. Of course the benefit of using a USB drive or DVD is that your existing OS remains untouched. On the other hand, performance and responsiveness won’t be quite as good, and you’re limited in terms of some system operations (to install apps and save files permanently, you need to create a USB stick with the persistence option enabled). 2) It’s simple to set up In the past, installing software and popular codecs on Linux was a pain for the less tech-savvy, but that’s no longer the case. Ubuntu, for example, prompts you to download codecs for commonly used audio and video formats with a single check box, and on most modern systems can instantly identify available wifi networks and connect up to them. While it’s true that seasoned Windows and Mac OS X users may find themselves occasionally perplexed by how to do something, that’s to be expected when switching between OSes of any flavor, and there’s always plenty of support available on the web. Most users are going to be up and running and happily enjoying Linux in a few minutes. 3) Everything you need is included Ubuntu comes complete with Firefox for your web browsing, Thunderbird for your emailing, and LibreOffice for making documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Other free and open source applications like GIMP (image editing), Evolution (the Linux version of Outlook), and Kodi (home theater and media management) are only a few clicks away. Other well-known apps with Linux versions include Google Chrome, Plex, VLC Player, Slack, Dropbox, Skype, and Spotify. And don’t forget all those programs that run in a browser now, from the online versions of Microsoft Office to Google Play Music. If there’s a Windows program you really need to bring along with you, then give Wine a try. 4) It’s very secure There’s a relatively small number of people using Linux as a desktop OS, which means a relatively small number of hackers looking to exploit it, but besides the raw numbers, Linux is an incredibly secure OS to run. It’s designed from the ground up to be secure, from the default privileges given to users to the way that Linux code is developed and maintained. Linux can crash and be exposed like any other operating system out there, but the fact that few pieces of malware will run on the platform and any damage they do will be more limited means it’s a solid choice for the security-conscious. It’s also less likely to be weighed down by bloat and creeping system sluggishness than its more well-known rivals. 5) You’re supporting open source and free software Linux is more than an operating system, it’s a philosophy. Not only is the software free (like Google Chrome, for example) but the source code is open and free (unlike Google Chrome, for example). You use the OS and the bundled software completely free of charge, but also view the code and make changes to it, should you be so inclined. When you use Linux you’re supporting a global community of millions committed to making software free to install and use. That philosophy has helped drive innovation on the web and in Windows and OS X, as well as Linux itself, and if you want to dive further into software development, Linux is a great place to get started.

  4. Xiaomi Linux Laptop To Enter Production Early Next Year Xiaomi’s long-rumoured Linux laptop will enter production in the first part of 2016, a new report claims. Industry watcher Digitimes’ sources also reveal that China’s Xiaomi plans to launch two notebooks: one sporting a 12.5-inch display and another with a 13.3-inch display. A difference in screen size is not the only distinction as each device will be made by a separate ODM: The model with a 12.5-inch screen will be manufactured by Inventec (who make laptops for Acer, Toshiba and HP), with an initial order of 250,000 units.The slightly larger device is to be made by Compal Electronics (known for manufacturing Apple devices, and various PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo games consoles), with Xiaomi placing an order for 300,000 units.Industry analysts say Xiaomi is now the world’s third biggest smartphone vendor – but Xiaomi is much more than a smartphone maker. It also makes the world’s second most popular wearable device, the Mi Band, and offers Smart TVs, routers, IoT home products and even an air purifier – ! – as part of its ‘lifestyle strategy’. It’s very much a case of when Xiaomi makes a laptop, not if. Manufacturing sources speaking to Digitimes earlier in the year said the company was developing a 15.6-inch notebook with its ODM partners. No firm production plans were set at the time. Now those sources claim there are two laptops, neither of which is 15-inch in size, but production of which is to commence in the first half of 2016. The manufacture and design of electronics is always subject to change and revision. What a source hears one month can be contradicted a few weeks later as component costs fluctuate, manufacturing availability changes, and market trends prompt a rethink. With word of the Xiaomi laptop entering production, it’s clear a direction has now been settled on. Xiaomi’s notebooks will, according to the same sources, be priced cheaply but offer high performance, just like the company’s smartphones. In fact, Xiaomi is said to be considering selling its new notebooks as a bundle with a new smartphone – a way to not only reinforce its overall lifestyle strategy, but ensure its new notebooks get off to a stellar start. And with a new, untested Linux-based OS onboard, it may well need the push. If anyone stands a chance of taking Linux mainstream in China it’s Xiaomi. Source
  5. Notebook Hardware Control 2.4.3 Professional Edition Portable Managing the components of a portable system and optimizing their usage to obtain the best performance with minimal power consumption is not an easy task, unless a specialized software is available. One such utility is Notebook Hardware Control (NHC), a program dedicated to power management and hardware monitoring. The well organized interface provides information about system components as well as quick access to all the functions of the application. Notebook Hardware Control helps you to: control the hardware and system power managementcustomize the notebook (open source ACPI Control System)prolong the battery lifetimecool down the system and reduce power consumptionmonitor the hardware to avoid system failuremake your notebook quietThus, you can view details like the CPU clock and current load, the processor and hard drive temperatures, CPU voltage and speed, as well as the available physical and virtual memory. Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) is able to detect for how long the system has been running (the power-on time) and read battery stats. The software features an Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) control system that can handle may power options, and set thresholds for critical CPU temperature that send a warning or shutdown the system, depending on the selected values. A neat thing about Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) is that it allows you to activate a set of tray icons for various parameters that you may want to monitor without having to bring up the program's interface every time. You can choose icons for processor clock, temperature, speed or load, as well as HDD temperature. Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) can also track the battery charge level and for certain laptops it provides a function called Notebook FAN Control which is useful for reducing the noise coming from the system cooler running at high speeds when it doesn't have to. To sum things up, it's safe to say that with the help of this application users can really benefit and adjust the power settings of their notebooks in such a manner that the system components are spared of unnecessary wear and tear. Here are some key features of "Notebook Hardware Control": prolong the battery lifetime and cool down the system with CPU Voltage Control and ATI Clock Control.full processor speed control with custom dynamic switching and CPU Speed Control (CPU policy)monitor the battery charge level and system temperature.control and monitor the Hard Drive with S.M.A.R.T management, acoustic & advanced power management and Hard Drive temperature monitoring.reduce noise with Notebook FAN ControlWebsite: http://www.pbus-167.com/ OS: Windows XP / Vista / 7 (Only x32!)

  6. ASUS just wrapped up their CES 2014 press event where they announced a ton of great new products. One of those products was the ASUS Transformer Book Duet TD300, which theyre calling the worlds first 4-in-1 laptop / tablet combo running both Android and Windows on one chipset. Its the first device to use Intel to run both Android and Windows on the same chip, meaning theres little overhead and resources being used for emulating one or the other. asus transformer book duet td300 photo op This sort of combo has been done before, but devices typically need separate SoCs for each respective platform. Said SoCs might only be activated in certain states (for example, Windows would only be accessible while docked inside of a tablet dock). It certainly is an exciting achievement for ASUS and Intel, and it should prove to be the breakthrough needed to help increase the popularity of this useful form factor. Even more exciting is its price tag: just $599 to walk away with one, apparently. We should note that is only the devices starting price tag, though, which will come with a Core i3 processor and a 13.3-inch 1,366 x 768 display. That same configuration can be had in 1080p flavoring for just $100. Models in the range go all the way up to a 1080p HD display with Intels Core i7 fourth generation processor. Were not quite sure how much that will cost just yet, but judging by ASUS desire to keep costs down on other products in their lineup, we cant imagine itll be a huge difference. Were a bit saddened that this thing will only be running Android 4.1 at launch, but at least the Windows installation is the latest version available. Well be crossing our fingers that ASUS brings us up to at least Android 4.3, though wed give them extra cool points if they can find a way to squeeze a KitKat bar in there somewhere. It should be launching in Europe and Asia in Q1 2014, and will be making its way stateside in Q2 http://phandroid.com/2014/01/06/asus-transformer-book-duet
  7. I have a Sony vaio VPCEB24EN notebook which is about 3 years old. I recently had a thermal issue with it and was unable to boot. Turned out that's the bug of the thermal paste which was expired. I ordered a new one and applied it removing the previous one clean. I have cleaned the vents and fan. After the application of new paste, now I'm able to boot my laptop but the thermal condition wasn't improving. After 15 mins from booting temperature reaches 55-600C doing usual tasks like opening and closing of windows, viewing images listening to music etc. During this, the CPU uses is just 0-5%. Now if you play some video, the CPU goes about 5-10% and the heat rises to 60-650C. Now you connect to the internet, the CPU uses remains about 0-10% (with browser running) heat goes upto 70-750C. So there is nothing that could be done physically anymore. The doubt goes to the logical part now. I mean, the drivers and utilities from sony. My model isn't supported at sony for windows 8 upgrade so there is no official support for it. I saw there that the windows 8 supported upgrades are provided with new drivers and utilities that are specially designed for windows 8 including the BIOS upgrade. I can not use them as they are not for my model, specially the BIOS update which is more crucial for windows 8. So what do you guys suggest now? Is there any way left?
