Declare independence from Windows 10 by downloading Linux Mint 18 ‘Sarah’ now!

As we approach the Fourth of July weekend, I begin thinking about independence. I am very proud of my forefathers for defeating the British — our now-ally — and creating our great nation, the USA. With that said, there are other things from which you can declare independence — such as Windows 10. Look, I think Microsoft’s desktop operating system is pretty good, although I understand that some folks are fearful of spying and forced-upgrade behavior. If you want to be free from Microsoft and Windows, I have good news — today, Linux Mint 18 is finally available. Will you download it… [Continue Reading]

Google Reveals What N In Android N Stands For — Nougat

We finally know what N in Android N stands for: Nougat. Google made the announcement on Thursday. The Android maker always names smartphone operating system updates after candies and other sweet treats. The past few versions, for instances, are named Marshmallow, Eclair, Lollipop, and Marshmallow. Naming aside, Android N brings with it a range of interesting features such as multi-window support, better battery efficiency, and the ability to reply to messages straight from the notification.

CP/M development environment setup

In 1974, Dr. Gary A. Kildall, while working for Intel Corporation, created CP/M as the first operating system for the new microprocessor. By 1977, CP/M had become the most popular operating system (OS) in the fledgling microcomputer (PC) industry. The largest Digital Research licensee of CP/M was a small company which had started life as Traf-0-Data, and is now known as Microsoft. In 1981, Microsoft paid Seattle Software Works for an unauthorized clone of CP/M, and Microsoft licensed this clone to IBM which marketed it as PC-DOS on the first IBM PC in 1981, and Microsoft marketed it to all other PC OEMs as MS-DOS. – Digital Research archivesIf you need to do CP/M development for the fun (or for the money, heh), here are some tips on how to setup an environment for CP/M development using the Hi-Tech C compiler.Basically you will need several things available, a Linux machine

Email updates about your own activity

When you enable email notifications, GitHub sends you messages about everyone’s issues, pull requests, comments, and commits except your own. For many people that leaves email threads feeling incomplete. For this reason, we have added a configuration setting so that you can receive emails about your own activity, too.

These emails contain the address your_activity@noreply.github.com in the CC field so you can filter them in different ways. For instance, you can mark these emails as read automatically and only receive notifications about others’ actions—all while keeping the complete conversation in your inbox. You can also star or tag emails, so they’ll stand out among all the other updates you might receive.

We’ve also added a few more configuration settings that let you get notifications on the actions that interest you most. Now you can choose to receive email updates for comments on issues and pull requests, pull request reviews, and pull request

How China Took Center Stage in Bitcoin’s Civil War

He said the American companies failed to understand the power dynamics in the room that day. “It was almost like imperialistic Westerners coming to China and telling us what to do,” Mr. Lee said in an interview last week. “There has been a history on this. The Chinese people have long memories.”The mysterious creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, released the software in early 2009. It was designed to provide both a digital coin and a new way to move and hold money, much as email had made it possible to send messages without using a postal service.From the beginning, the system was designed to be decentralized — operated by all the people who joined their computers to the Bitcoin network and helped to process the transactions, as Wikipedia entries are written and maintained by volunteers around the world.The appeal of a group-run network was that there would be no single

Wide and Deep Learning: Better Together with TensorFlow

Today we’re open-sourcing our implementation of Wide & Deep Learning as part of the TF.Learn API so that you can easily train a model yourself. Please check out the TensorFlow tutorials on Linear Models and Wide & Deep Learning, as well as our research paper to learn more.How Wide & Deep Learning works.Let’s say one day you wake up with an idea for a new app called FoodIO*. A user of the app just needs to say out loud what kind of food he/she is craving for (the query). The app magically predicts the dish that the user will like best, and the dish gets delivered to the user’s front door (the item). Your key metric is consumption rate—if a dish was eaten by the user, the score is 1; otherwise it’s (the label).You come up with some simple rules to start, like returning the items that match the most
