Major Take-Aways From WWDC 2011

Apple’s CEO announced today a new service called iCloud at Apple’s WorldWide Developer Conference 2011. The service allows Apple product owners to store both documents and music in the cloud (on the Internet) rather than on a physical computer, hard drive, or mobile phone.

With the iCloud, users will be able to have greater access to content without having to max out their portable media devices.

If you loved every bit of the HTC Desire, but were hoping for something more ‘desktop-y’, a guy named Bergfex from XDA developers, got the Android phone to boot to Linux Ubuntu, natively. To do the hack, the user must put zip files in specified places (such as the root of one’s SD card and on the desktop). The phone must then be put into bootloader mode. The user is then required to connect his or her phone into a desktop computer and restart it to get the old ROM loading.

So you may be asking, well how does Ubuntu work on a phone, is it buggy?
