  • Canonical kills its Ubuntu smartphone, tablet, convergence plans

    A shame. Seemed like good tech.
    Ubuntu couldn't even take advantage of the mess that was Windows 8 because their desktop was actually even worse. So scores of former Ubuntu users ultimately switched to Fedora, which is Red Hat's desktop competitor to Ubuntu. This despite Ubuntu having much more software available for desktop users due to being the Linux desktop of choice for ages. 

    It is not an exaggeration to say that Canonical ruined Ubuntu when they took control of the formerly open source community led effort and tried to make money off it. Thanks to their failed meddling, lots of even the Ubuntu diehards switched to Debian (on which Ubuntu is based).
    Another one worth mentioning is the effect that Linux Mint had - as that distro quickly became a the go-to "I want something like Windows 7, but is easy to use and is modern" Linux distro.

  • "Sleep of Death" bug hits buyers of Microsoft's pricey Surface Book

    I used to have a Surface Pro 3. Pretty sure I remember having similar wake issues when I was on the Windows 10 Technical Preview. At the time I figured it was just a bug with the preview. Would have to hard reset the thing to get it to respond. Glad I flipped it on eBay and don't have to deal with that anymore.
