Let's cut to the chase. Android is the most popular of all Linux distributions. Period. End of statement. But that's not the entire story.Still it must be said, according to StatCounter, Android is the most popular of all operating systems. By a score of 39.49 percent to 36.63 percent, Android beats out Windows for global personal device supremacy. Sorry Windows, you had a nice run, but between your smartphone failures and the PC decline, your day is done. But, setting Android aside, what's the most popular Linux? It's impossible to work that out. The website-based analysis tools, such as those used by StatCounter, NetMarketShare, and the Federal government's Digital Analytics Program (DAP), can't tell the difference between Fedora, openSUSE, and Ubuntu. DAP does give one insightful measurement the others sites don't give us. While not nearly as popular as Android, Chrome OS is more popular than all the other Linux-based desktops combined by a score, in April 2018, of 1.3 percent to … [Read more...] about What’s the most popular Linux of them all?

Einstein's theory of gravity, also referred to as General Relativity, predicts that a rotating body such as the Earth partially drags inertial frames along with its rotation. In a study recently published in EPJ Plus, a group of scientists based in Italy suggests a novel approach to measuring what is referred to as frame dragging. Angela Di Virgilio of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics, INFN, in Pisa, Italy, and her colleagues propose using the most sensitive type of inertial sensors, which incorporate ring lasers as gyroscopes, to measure the absolute rotation rate of the Earth.The experiment aims to measure the absolute rotation with respect to the local inertial frame, which is what is referred to as frame dragging. In principle, the ring laser should show one rotation around the Earth's axis every 24 hours. However, should observation by reference to fixed stars in the sky show a slightly different rate of rotation, the difference can be attributed to frame … [Read more...] about Proving Einstein Right Using The Most Sensitive Earth Rotation Sensors Ever Made
Verizon Wireless announced Tuesday a new shared data plan that will work across 10 devices. It will be folded into the carrier's Share Everything Plans, which are scheduled to begin on June 28 for new and existing customers.The shared data plan will offer unlimited voice minutes, text, video and picture messaging. It will allow Verizon customers to choose a monthly access fee per device, with prices ranging from US$10 for tablets to $40 for smartphones. All devices using the shared data will need to be added to the account."The interesting piece of all this is that in the U.S. market there has been unlimited tariff for data," said Ian Fogg, an analyst at IHS iSuppli. "What we're going from is flat rate data where users had a limited number of voice minutes, and the world we're heading to is one where voice is unlimited while data becomes tiered."Verizon did not respond to our request to comment for this story.Verizon is indeed looking to provide unlimited voice minutes, with unlimited … [Read more...] about Verizon Lets Many Devices Scarf the Same Data Pie
In the rush to play in the Big Data game, it's easy to forget the fundamentals. The fear of being left behind can cause enterprise IT teams to move directly into pilot projects with a choice of products and technologies that may not be best designed to solve the identified business problem. For example, because Hadoop has become such a popular tech buzzword, many organizations are racing to implement this Big Data platform before properly understanding their goal. A mismatch can often result.The confusing, emerging world of Big Data is not doing IT any favors, either. With literally hundreds of products and technologies already in the market (and more announced monthly), each claiming to best address the new opportunity presented by the volume, velocity and variety of Big Data, it's no surprise that corners are being cut. The good news is that many excellent products and technologies now exist to enable fast, efficient, affordable and sophisticated use of even the largest and most … [Read more...] about EXPERT ADVICE Match the Big Data Job to the Big Data Solution
