SteamOS to have NVIDIA developer tools from day one

This week the folks at NVIDIA have suggested that their developer program GameWorks will not be limited to the likes of Linux and Android - not by any stretch of the imagination. NVIDIA made clear that not only would they be extending GameWorks support - developer tools for games, that is - for Ubuntu environments, but for SteamOS as well.

NVIDIA Project Logan runs Faceworks in real time

This week at an event in Montreal, NVIDIA showed off the high-powered demo software called Faceworks (previously working on NVIDIA Titan processors for PC) working on the next-generation mobile-aimed processor Project Logan. This processor will almost certainly be re-named Tegra 5 as each "Project" codename has been re-named "Tegra #", and what we've seen here is an ultra high-powered graphics-intensive beast of a demo on it running just as smoothly as we've seen it run on some of the most powerful graphics processors available from NVIDIA for desktop machines.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z gets successful Ubuntu Touch port

The Ubuntu Edge didn't get funded, therefore we may not see the powerful Ubuntu-powered phone get created, but that doesn't mean we can't use the Ubuntu Touch interface on a mobile device. The Linux-based mobile operating system has been successfully ported to the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, in which owners can now play around with Ubuntu on their tablet.

Ubuntu Edge appears “absolutely anti-ergonomic” in the wild [UPDATE]

The project known as Ubuntu Edge is a dual-booting Ubuntu/Android smartphone that may or may not make its way to the real world due to its slightly under-funded initiative for action - but that's not stopping early adopters from showing the machine off in a set of up-close photos. What you're seeing here is the Ubuntu Edge looking very much like the device as prototyped in the original campaign. Here we see this "smartphone and desktop PC in one" as what China-based C Tech calls "absolutely anti-ergonomic" - but what original photographer Adam Outler calls "really great and solid in the hand" - which does it look like to you?

Ubuntu Edge gets price hack to boost Indiegogo pledges

You might remember that dual-booting Linux and Android-powered phone that we discussed last month. It's called the Ubuntu Edge and it's hoping to change the mobile landscape in a big way. However, before it can do that, Canonical needs some funding help in order to produce the phone for the masses, and it seems like pledges are slowing down, for which Canonical is bumping the price down in order to get more people interested.

SOL solar-powered Ubuntu laptop arrives with 10-hour sun-juiced battery

Laptop battery life is something that we all can't seem to be happy with.
