A selection of updated icons Like many, I’ve been itching to learn a bit more about GNOME’s new icon set. But I need itch no more! Red Hat employee and GNOME team designer Jakub Steiner has taken to his blog to detail the “…background on why [the icon redesign] was needed, our goals with the initiative, and our exciting plans for the future.” We can expect to see the first fruits of this bold new icon revamp in GNOME 3.32 when it’s released in March. All of the new GNOME icons are proportionally designed according to a grid (more on that below), make use of a refined color palette, and use solid, geometric lines. Some icons sport a bottom lip/chin, giving them a semi-3D perspective that’s sort of like a Scrabble tile. Anyway, while the upcoming Ubuntu 19.04 release will be based on GNOME 3.32 it won’t feature this new icon set. Why? Because Ubuntu has its own! It will continue to use the (newly expanded) Suru/Yaru icon set. … [Read more...] about The Big GNOME Icon Revamp – Are You a Fan?
Elon Musk told the world in late 2017 that Tesla was taking its automotive know-how and applying it to a totally new challenge: self-driving big rigs. But one year later, he placed the Tesla Semi fourth on a list of priorities for the company, behind the upcoming Model Y compact SUV and an electric pickup truck. This week, Daimler executed a move many years in the making by announcing its own big rig (albeit diesel-powered) outfitted with semi-autonomous technology. And others are following suit. The German automaker also committed to manufacturing the truck this summer, with deliveries scheduled for later this year. It pledged 500 million euros over the next few years to the continued development of an autonomous big rig, and said it has hired hundreds of employees to move the tech forward. And just like it did when it unveiled the prototype version in 2015, Daimler gave us a ride in the truck to get a taste of what the near future of trucking will look like. While there are a few … [Read more...] about Daimler is beating Tesla to making semi-autonomous big rigs

Still, he had no way of knowing he would someday run a company, HubSpot, that will soon employ more than 1,000 people there.The Cambridge marketing company is poised to do just that, with a new lease for 112,000 square feet on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in Dublin. The Irish capital is already home to HubSpot’s second-largest operation, with roughly 600 people working out of 63,000 square feet across the River Liffey.Sherman says that number is likely to grow to at least 1,400 during the next several years. (The headquarters team in Cambridge has also been growing, from 680 at the time of HubSpot’s 2014 IPO to nearly 1,700 today.)

For nearly 20 years, the best downhill mountain bikers in the world have gathered in a remote corner of the Utah desert to compete against one another in what has become the craziest event the sport has to offer. Held annually in Virgin, Utah, the Red Bull Rampage tasks riders with navigating down the side of a very steep, very rocky mountain face while pulling off jaw-dropping stunts along the way. In order to win the Rampage, riders need to not only be fast and fearless, but creative and smart too. It doesn’t hurt if they have a healthy dose of luck on their side as well. Prior to the start of the event, the Rampage course is little more than a starting gate at the top and a finish line down below. Competitors show up a week ahead of time in order to find and develop a route that not only takes them down the mountain, but allows them to showcase their riding skills along the way. No two riders take the same path, and part of the fun is seeing how they use the terrain to their … [Read more...] about How bike tech lets Red Bull Rampage riders flirt with death, and survive
