Replace your CPU with Android phone

Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu the famous Linux flavored operating system, has unveiled an Android version of the operating system. The new version of Ubuntu Android app will enable any multi-core Android smartphones which when connected with a keyboard and monitor to offer a full desktop experience. The demo of this new Operating System will be held at Mobile World Congress which is to be held later this month in Barcelona, Spain.

When the smartphone with Ubuntu is connected to a computer, a full Ubuntu desktop will appear on the display of the desktop. It’s exactly the same desktop that you will find on any computer running Ubuntu OS, and includes certified applications, from office productivity to photography, video and music.

Replace your CPU with Android phone

With the app, you can also share data and services between the Ubuntu and Android environments. So, Android applications such as contacts, telephony and SMS/MMS messaging are accessible from the Ubuntu interface. All data created using the Ubuntu OS on desktop can be accessed through the smartphone at any time, docked or not thus providing with the mobility.While Ubuntu is marketing it as an enterprise tool to reduce cost and management for the IT teams, which will need to manage only the phone while offering desktop experience as well. It will be of equal importance to home users in reducing the cost of computing.

Ubuntu offers a range of native applications and excellent support for web browsers like Chrome and Firefox. The desktop can also include Windows applications, using thin client and desktop virtualisation tools.With a range of dual core and quad core Android phones in the market, it makes perfect sense as it will unlock the full potential of the power of these phones.What is also great is that fact that Intel and Nvidia are working on brining affordable dual core Android handsets to the market. This will make it even more lucrative for users to use this Ubuntu and Android combination.

Hardware requirements for installing Ubuntu on Android includes support for HDMI and USB, which is a standard features in high-end handsets planned for 2012.
Motorola has done a similar thing with its lapdock, however it is a dedicated hardware that one needs to buy.
On the contrary with Ubuntu Android, the total investment apart from the phone will be in the range of Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 depending on the computer that one prefers.

Facts about FaceBook IPO Part II

Facts about FaceBook IPO Part I
That’s a lot of corn:-Facebook has been busy making money in recent years, as well as growing fast. In 2009, the company said it brought in $777 million in revenue. That figure grew to $1.974 billion in 2010, and then almost doubled in 2011 when the company had $3.71 billion in revenue and $1 billion in profit.

The S-1 filing also shows that digital cows, crops, and mafia hit jobs are a big source of revenue for the company; social game maker Zynga was responsible for about 12 percent of Facebook’s revenue in 2011.

Zuckerberg went to China but Facebook didn’t:-Facebook isn’t sure it can move into China and is concerned about any restrictions the Chinese government might put on the company. This is a lesson Facebook likely learned from Google’s problems with Chinese authorities in early 2010 that resulted in the search giant shutting down its “.cn” Chinese-language search engine. “We continue to evaluate entering China. However, this market has substantial legal and regulatory complexities that have prevented our entry into China to date,” Facebook said in its SEC filing.

Later in the document the company added, “We do not know if we will be able to find an approach to managing content and information that will be acceptable to us and to the Chinese government.”

Zuckerberg is king :-
Surprising Facts Learned from IPO PaperworkNot only will Zuckerberg serve as chairman and CEO, he will also be granted the power to name his successor if he still controls the company when he dies. “In the event that Mr. Zuckerberg controls our company at the time of his death,” Facebook’s S-1 filing says. “Control may be transferred to a person or entity that he designates as his successor.” This clause has struck some analysts as unusual, according to several reports including The New York Post and Bloomberg Businessweek, but the clause also makes it clear that Zuckerberg is Facebook’s ruling power.
