Intel’s HDMI Compute Stick slaps Windows or Linux on your TV

There’s an undercurrent at this year’s CES that’s hard to ignore: Intel. The company is making some subtle inroads to arenas we’re not used to seeing them, their most notable non-PC showing in Dell’s interesting new Venue 8 7000 tablet. Now, the company is taking PC mobile, allowing you to take a full-fledged operating system in the form of an HDMI dongle.

Ubuntu Touch phones set for 2015 while TV still in the works

For users that've tried the Ubuntu Touch experience in smartphones and tablets over the past several weeks or months, you know good and well that it's nearly ready for mainstream users - but not quite. As it were, Canonical community manager Jono Bacon spoke up on the situation this week, suggesting that they'll not be ready to deliver any devices before 2015. As for the Ubuntu Edge we saw last year - that's no longer a device that'll be produced at all.
