Windows feature for Precise Pangolin Ubuntu 12:04

12:04 Ubuntu Precise Pangolin is not only comfortable, but also energy efficient, but is not the Unity interface perfectly, so would Precise Pangolin to add new features. Ubuntu takes over Sun 12:04 a Windows feature that is, I will show in this article. The new Head Up Display The largest change in Ubuntu 12:04 is the "head-up display" for short (HUD). The head up display is next to the search bar not only programs and a variety of settings, but also accepts commands. In the Internet settings, they must now look to the example no longer on the network and then navigate to the option to change it but the term is equal to the HUD enter. They have proposed the Automatic network key actions. This time, the Ubuntu say 12:04 is an LTS version so that's to say that this edition of the operating system is provided for five years with updates. currently operates the HUD search only in certain areas of the system, but is this search for something better than the settings to navigate. The special feature of the HUD is it constantly learns and indicating even basic information such as date or time. These data will then continue to appear in the status bar, but here they are distributed across the screen. If they do not command such white but only for "folder" and are looking to enter the "Create Folder" to get the action shown.  The new command line will be displayed by pressing [Alt].
Over time, learns to HUD and therefore offers better and better proposals. Currently, the commands do not work system wide, but only in software administration, the terminal and the file manager. It could be that it still works on certain programs, but even I was able to identify only those areas of the wide-ranging operational commands. In other articles there are certainly other programs that are visible on the HUD.  new Jump Lists and improved search in Ubuntu 12:04 has also been revised and the classical program launcher promises a faster search and jump lists. So far, the search does not change very quickly in Ubuntu 12:04 and spits for white one letter detailed search much faster than its predecessor.  The developers have a new video filters built with pressed [WIN] + [v] keys examined and videos only displays the are on the computer. It worked before with files, programs and music. On the left side of the screen where the launcher list is no longer goes on automatically, but will appear permanently in the foreground. There can now drop any directory. With the background you can determine settings such as white big the icons appear in the launcher. For the eye is also something there, because Ubuntu brings a new wallpaper pack. The Wallpaper pack is  here for download. update and replacement of the Software has provided software in Ubuntu compared to its predecessor and design, which is the default Firefox Web browser 11 and the e-mail management takes Thunderbird 11th For the office sector is LibreOffice 3.5.1 is available and would make the existing audio player Banshee from Ubuntu 12:04 removed for audio playback is now Rhythmbox responsible. So there is some improvement in performance and appearance of Ubuntu, as would the new Linux installed kernel 3.2 supports among other things, the new processor from Intel Ivy Bridge, and this also saves power. And thanks to the power saving mode " RC6 ". The integrated graphics chip, the CPU may need to be supplied with less power than normally can be thus saving energy and thus money.  More information can be found naturally on . Ubuntu is 12:04 PrecisePangolin it here as a direct download the 32 bit Ubuntu version. And here in the 64 bit version.

Google's Online Drive - 5GB free storage than Dropbox competitor

For a long time there were rumors about a Google online storage as an alternative Dropbox and Google Drive is now online. It feels like Dropbox and Google Docs in combination with good organization and search, as they are known also from Gmail. desktop synchronization as with Dropbox Dropbox How to help a program for Windows or Mac OSX in the synchronization of documents, videos and other files in the cloud. There is also an Android app and an IOS app is announced. So you can even have mobile access to the stored data in the cloud. Each user gets 5GB free storage and can expand this to 25GB. It costs 2.49 U.S. dollars a month. 100GB costs $ 4.99 a month and 1TB cost $ 49.99. If you upgrade the mail store is also expanding on that memory. The fee-based options are therefore more favorable than the Dropbox competitor.
The webapp with many functions and focus on search , as expected from Google is Google Drive as a variety of webapp, which is focused on the search. This is also one of the main differences perceived in a positive way to Dropbox. Google uses one drive through the browser, it feels a bit like Google Docs. You can search the entire Google Drive and finds files and documents felt easier and faster than Dropbox. Google Drive has a built-in character recognition (OCR) and also allowing you to search scanned PDF files. This is a really useful feature. Even photos are recognized when they occur. An Eiffel Tower in the photo should be found as such, even if there is no indication in the file name to see the photo. Within the webapp you can also open, numerous file formats. Also videos, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files are not a problem, of course, also be open all the files you can open with Google Docs. Google Docs is integrated directly and naturally allows not only the display but also the processing of corresponding files. An API also allows the use of Google Drive by other applications. So it is probably only a matter of time until developers build such functionality into your applications.

 In version 11.0, the rate of XBMC partially increased significantly. The network support has been improved significantly and dealing with the unencrypted HDTV content. With trick can be encrypted also play Bluray content, but it should be mentioned only in passing. In Eden also AirPlay support has been finalized, allowing content from iPad, iPhone and iPod touch wirelessly transfer them to XBMC and then there display. Interestingly, apparently was also the "weather service" improves the lot of the first show in video reviews. I even use it properly before, but who needs it, now is an improved version. The list of improvements is long and the team XBMC released a summary of the changes . In addition to the pure software improvements XBMC has been optimized for new devices and new hardware. Eden marks the first stable version for Apple TV 2 and iPad, but also for other IOS devices. Also handling on Mac and Windows - level has been improved and graphics AMD is now much better supported than in previous versions. In addition to the released versions for Windows, Linux, OSX and iOS are also a XBMCbuntu Final, which essentially replaces XBMC Live and interested users can XBMC is on a CD or USB boot, so try before installation. In XBMCbuntu it is, therefore, an Ubuntu-based operating system which boots directly into XBMC and therefore is able to operate without a desktop.
