Intel’s Compute Card could transform the world of smart devices by https://is.gd/dQWPif

It doesn’t take too long before your typical “smart” gadget becomes dumb. After a few years, the hardware inside of your TV or connected refrigerator will be hopelessly out of date. And if you want to upgrade, your only choice right now is to buy a whole new device.

Intel is hoping to change that with the Compute Card, a credit card-size device that packs in all of the hardware — a processor, memory, storage and networking capabilities — needed to make any device smart.

The Linux Foundation offers a number of online courses via the edX platform including an Introduction to Linux.

One very attractive feature of these courses is that they are free to take, although you can pay an additional fee of $99 (around £75) for a formal ‘certificate of completion’ if you wish.

The Introduction to Linux course has been prepared by Jerry Cooperstein, the Training Program Director for the Linux Foundation, and there’s even a short welcome message from the creator of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds himself. So it’s safe to say you’re in good hands.

You have a lot of options when it comes to watching videos on your devices. Most users seem to use YouTube more or less exclusively for all their family friendly video needs, but sites like Vimeo or Dailymotion are popular as well.

Search on YouTube, with YouTube being a Google property, should be one of the strong features of the video streaming site, but it is not really.

Just three years ago, in 2014, I wrote a little short story set in a future where most work is organized around blockchains. That story was set sometime past the 2120s, but it appears we’ll get there a century earlier than I thought.

The idea of organizing work through smart contracts on blockchains has been moving ahead at a breathtaking pace.

An introduction to Linux’s EXT4 filesystem by https://is.gd/LDEKBw

In previous articles about Linux filesystems, I wrote an introduction to Linux filesystems and about some higher-level concepts such as everything is a file.

I want to go into more detail about the specifics of the EXT filesystems, but first, let’s answer the question, “What is a filesystem?”

Tomorrow’s Cars Won’t Just Drive Themselves. They’ll Feel Different by https://is.gd/9Zp6QD

Look inside a modern car, and you’ll see many of the same materials that formed the earliest automobiles. Leather, wood, metal, and cloth convey a sense of luxury, a connection to the beloved way things were. You may see synthetic stuff too, materials born of the jet and space ages.

As the auto industry adapts to a smartphone-enabled world and looks to the potentially radical changes offered by autonomy, sharing, and alternative powertrains, what you touch and feel inside the car has once again drawn the attention of the world’s designers.

Consumers have other concerns. Vegan leather substitutes, fast-growing and readily renewable woods like bamboo or banana leaf, and recycled fabric blends cater to a newly popular interest in sustainability.
