  • As corporate logos go, Red Hat’s fedora-sporting “Shadowman” is about as iconic as they come, but he could be living on borrowed time. The software company, based in downtown Raleigh, is in the midst of an “open brand project” and in October is due to roll out an all-new logo. The color red, and a hat, are likely to figure in it somehow presuming in-house designers follow the advice they’re getting from customers and employees. But Shadowman’s survival is far from assured, as the company has already said its research suggests he’s “seen as more secretive than open, and more villainous than heroic.” Herald Sun I hope not that an iconic logo I might cry.
  • When Canonical decided to halt the development of Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system, it came as a surprise to many. However, due to the lack of interest of smartphone manufacturers and community, this tough decision was taken. Later, UBPorts decided to take up the Ubuntu Touch development work. Down the line when Librem 5 open source smartphone’s development work started gaining momentum, and it partnered with GNOME and KDE projects, the community members also expected a possible collaboration with UBPorts as well. Fortunately, that partnership has seen the daylight. FossBytes So glad to see the open source phone is still trying to get off the ground. Keep it up Linux Geeks.  
  • I get asked by users all the time, “Why should my company use cloud storage?” I always respond by saying that “cloud storage is great but, you need more than just storage and that’s where OneDrive comes in. OneDrive is all about enabling people to easily share and work together from anywhere, on any device, securely”. Over the past year, we have worked hard to bring new sharing features to OneDrive and SharePoint, including real-time collaboration for Office for Mac as well as to iOS and Android. Today we have several announcements that reinforce our commitment to deliver a first-class experience to our Mac, iOS and Android users. Microsoft So happy to see Microsoft is changing the way it distributes OneDrive for Mac. OneDrive will now be packed with Office 2016 for Mac instead of a stand app which hopefully will make things smoother on the user end.
