HTC Desire With Linux Ubuntu Installed!

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.

Facebook Acquires Beluga — Mobile Messaging App

Facebook Releases New Messaging To Everyone

On Friday, Facebook announced that all users will soon be able to migrate to the new messaging platform.

Facebook was probably getting a ton of requests from people who want the upgrade – which unlike the profile upgrade, might make sense. However, the expectation was that the rollout would happen gradually, but now it seems that the roll out will happen much faster and very soon.

The benefit to the new messaging system is essentially that it acts as extended instant messaging system with SMS. There is also the ability to have history from all the messages, even chat messages.
