Randall Ross: Why Smart Phones Aren't - Reason #2 & Reason #3
Randall Ross continues his posts explaining his concerns with the use of the term “smartphone”. Randall reflects that despite the technology’s capabilities, users are asking each other “Where are you?” on the train and ignoring the fact that “silence is golden” while at the movies.
Joe Liau: Documenting the Death of the Dumb Telephone – Part 1: Unnecessary & Part 2: Balderdash
Joe Liau begins a series of posts where he discusses his concern of how the smartphone is seldom used to make actual phone calls and how it provides an excess of useless information through texting and email.
Michael Hall: Unity 8 Desktop
Michael Hall's blog features a guest post from Will Cooke of Canonical who writes about plans to get Unity 8 into the desktop release. He compares Unity 8 to Unity 7, informing us about what is new, and advises that a preview is available by downloading the daily Ubuntu Desktop Next live image.
Kubuntu: KDE Applications and Development Platform 4.14.2
The Kubuntu Team announces the release of KDE SC 4.14.2. They advise for which Kubuntu versions the release is available and from where the packages can be downloaded.

Jonathan Riddell: Ubuntu's Linux Scheduler or Why Baloo Might be Slowing Your System in 14.04
Jonathan Riddell shares the Kubuntu team's experiences of trying to solve a problem of a user's system that was running slow due to Baloo, the new indexer from KDE. He says changes to Unity were made as it was having problems with the CFQ scheduler. Jonathan concludes: "...it would be nice if the expectation was on Unity to get fixed rather than on Kubuntu to deal with the bureaucracy to workaround their workarounds."
Randall Ross: Writing About Ubuntu? Own Your Own Content
Randall Ross is sad to note that these days a lot of people rarely post on The Planet instead choosing Google+. He quotes part of Google's license, and says "Friends, it's really not that difficult to host a blog and to use a more respectful service."
Mythbuntu: Actions required by Nov 1st due to Schedules Direct change
Thomas Mashos reproduces an announcement that affects users using the Schedules Direct service to get guide data. Thomas says "Users that have enabled the MythTV Updates repo and are on a current version of MythTV and a supported version of Ubuntu will receive the fix for this via regular updates." The enabling of the MythTV Updates repo is something the Mythbuntu team have always recommended.
Nicholas Skaggs: Final testing for Utopic
Nicholas Skaggs writes that the final Utopic images are available and ready for testing. He says that help is need to records both positive and negative results on the ISO Tracker, and links to help pages and contact details.
Ronnie Tucker: Canonical Details Plans for Unity 8 Integration in Ubuntu Desktop
Ronnie Tucker draws from and links to a Softpedia article that shows that the Ubuntu Desktop flavor hasn't been the developer's focus for some time. He concludes his post by saying "Not all users know that the desktop environment that is now on Ubuntu Touch will also power the desktop version in the future, and that future is not very far ahead. In fact, it’s a lot closer than users imagine.
Jussi Kekkonen: Notes about Dell XPS 13 developer edition and Kubuntu
Jussi Kekkonen writes about his experiences installing Kubuntu 14.04 on a new Dell XPS13. He mentions problems with problems with the touch screen but says "Everything else works like a charm out of the box in Kubuntu 14.04, except cooling."
Randall Ross: Ubuntu Contributors' Guide
Randall Ross, with the help of a flow chart, provides a simple guide to contributing to Ubuntu.
Canonical answers nine Frequently Asked Questions around BootStack and OpenStack including "Which hosting companies can I use?", and "Why BootStack? What is new?"
Designing machine view
Luca Paulina writes that 'Machine View' for Juju was launched a few weeks ago and shares with us some of the challenges that were faced in the process of creating it. Luca illustrates his post with several screenshots and says "We hope that machine view will really help Juju users by increasing the level of control and flexibility they have over their cloud infrastructure."
How to customize and brand your scope
David Callé says that scopes come with very flexible customization and that they can be made to look like a generic RSS reader, a music library or a store front. David shows how the SoundCloud scope was created by providing illustrations, and links to a tutorial.
In The Blogosphere
Unity 8 Desktop Still Planned In Time For Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Michael Larabel of Phoronix reflects "While much of Canonical's recent focus has been about reading Unity 8 for mobile devices, their plan is still to ship Unity 8 by default on the Ubuntu Linux desktop ahead of its next LTS release." He briefly outlines the plans for each Ubuntu release and links to Will Cooke's blog post where the plans are discussed in detail.
HP Makes Real-Time Processing Real With Help From TI
Sanjay Bhal of Texas Instruments informs us that Hewlett-Packard (HP) hit a milestone by becoming the first major vendor to add a 64-bit ARM server to their portfolio and that the 32-bit version includes an integrated DSP chip from Texas Instruments. Sanjay describes some of the technical features of the machine and says "...TI and HP have worked in collaboration with Canonical to enable a software environment that is powered by Ubuntu."
The Ubuntu release cycle and what it means for aging hardware
Jack Wallen of TechRepublic look at Ubuntu's version numbers and support for 32-bit systems. Jack assures his readers that both 32 and 64-bit systems are currently supported including Ubuntu 14.10 which will be ready very soon.
Ubuntu Touch Fully Forks Its Email Client
Michael Larabel of Phoronix writes that up to now the Ubuntu Touch email client has been based on the Trojita application but the Ubuntu Touch developers have stopped upstreaming their changes to Trojita and are now maintaining their own long-term fork called Dekko. Michael says that the reason for the changes is to create something that is tightly integrated into Ubuntu.
