Linux Mint 15 Reviewed and Praised

Downloaded and installed LinuxMint 15 and I must say that it is a very nice distro. The biggest showstopper I have is the lock down parts of the distro. I have used Synaptic for many a year and for some reason LinuxMint will cripple the application. To do responsible and personal updates and upgrades you have to use the command line. Mint's update manager lacks a lot to be desired. They cripple Synaptic in order to try to make you use their simple utilities. I decide what the proper updates are for my computers, not Mint. I believe this is more for the new user coming from MS Windows. Commenters who complain about bugs coming from the Ubuntu base and landing into LinuxMint and blaming the bugs on Ubuntu are a little off base in that assessment. The development team has no excuse not to repair bugs and to let them into the distribution. Yes, LinuxMint is a very good distro but still lacks some quality control work. If the Mint team can work on that then they will have deserved the imaginary number one spot on Distrowatch.

How to view flash content on iPad 3

You might find it funny, but despite the fact that the iPad 3 has quad core graphics, it does not supports Flash. Adobe initially wanted to create flash plugin for the iPad, but Steve Jobs dismissed any possibility of allowing flash to run on iOS devices by saying Flash is inefficient on a mobile platform as it sucks too much power.

However, there are ways via which you can run flash on iPad 3 that include by using applications like iSwifter and Skyfire. Skyfire is great for viewing web video that makes uses of flash plugin. However, it does not allows you to do anything that involves interaction, such as Flash games.

For those, you must install iSwifter that gives you access to thousands of flash based games.

Series 5 XE500C21-A04US Chromebook

I love chromium netbooks and today, Samsung has rolled out Samsung XE500C21-A04US that sports a 12. 1inch display and looks absolutely gorgeous. It features two USB 2.0 ports, and has a SD card slot as well.
It measures 0.79 inches thick and will hit the retail stores for 350 dollars.

For some reason, Samsung decided to go with the dual core processor and not Atom processor which is what they went for in its predecessor.

Keyboard looks very comfortable and the company says that it has stretched it to the sides to make extra room that results in better typing experience. The palm rest also looks very spacious.
