Ubuntu 12.10 Will Be Called Quantal Quetzal — Yes, After A Bird

Quantal Quetzal. Get used to more than just the bird now. It has been decided that for Ubuntu, by far the most popular open-source operating system against closed operating systems like Mac and Windows is going to have a successor after Precise Pangolin, which launches this Thursday. And yes, you’re totally on the ball here: there are some weird names for Ubuntu operating systems. Quantal Quetzal will have as October 18th as its proper release day, with the first alpha scheduled to land on June 7th and the first beta on September 6th. Joy of joys, indeed.

HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE Now On Verizon Site Page

Oh, it’s an HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE. Indeed, it is one of the longer names available for an Android 4.0 with Sense 4 phone, but despite that annoying factor, there is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1 gigabyte of RAM, a mainstream 4-inch super LCD qHD display, a single 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with a VGA camera on the front, plus LTE hotspot mode with support for up to 10 devices and Beats Audio on board for that purported “studio-quality sound.” It costs a full $299.99 on contract, but the purchase link currently redirects to another Droid device, so that for now, it’ll have to wait.

Samsung Calls People “Sheep”, Teases The Next Galaxy

Hmph. At least it’s some sort of progress. From tgeltaayehxnx  to thenextgalaxy.com a day later, we see a teaser video that doesn’t really show much. Other than calling people sheep (sheeple?). So one of the biggest phone makers in the one called every single one of its customers sheep? I don’t know how to take that. Anyways, the video is available after the break.

Adobe Has CS6 Up For Pre-Order And The Monthly Creative Cloud Service

 This is something big. Adobe has announced a $49/month with an annual subscription or $79/month for month-to-month plan for users to get full access to any CS6 tool, including Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and AfterEffects. How? Through the new online cloud suite which will also include Adobe’s new HTML5 design and development tools Muse and Edge, and will be deeply integrated into the company’s tablet apps. This suite can download and use apps on up to two different machines.

Also, for those just interested in Photoshop, there’s a subscription for $19.99/month with an annual membership and $29.99 without, which is fantastic, with teacher and team pricing available in the near future, as well. Now, when is all of this awesomeness available? According to Adobe, they “are scheduled to be available within 30 days.” Better yet, there will be seamless sharing of work and transitioning from tablet to the desktop for ideas and projects you may make.

And as for the boxed CS6 suite, it still will be available, but of course is no longer as “cool” and the Creative Cloud.

This Week On LaptopMemo: Hanging With One S And Gaming News Rampage

This week hit a peak on LaptopMemo, mainly due to our HTC One S hands-on on at a great press event here in NYC (see video). It was followed by Alienware’s new laptops (and killing one of the best), then it was all about gaming moving on from that. From Arma 3, to Dishonored, EA’s Crysis 3, 343’s art for Halo 4 getting leaked, and finally the pricing and release date for the HTC One X.

A good week of news that was, no doubt.

Samsung teases the world with next Galaxy — via an anagram

This had to be one of those “give them something for a boring, slow news day Sunday” kind of PR ploys. According to the Samsung Mobile Twitter account: “Destination: tgeltaayehxnx,”. As those of who read anagrams would decipher, that translates to “the next Galaxy”. And so says the countdown page; something interesting might happen in the next couple of hours.
