Wine on Android demoed, development still in early stages

Linux and Unix users might be pleased to know that work on an Android port of Wine has started. Those who were attending the Free and Open Source Software Developers European Meeting (FOSDEM) in Brussels had the opportunity to see Wine on Android in action, despite the fact that the port is still in the very early stages of development. How early are we talking? To give you an idea, today we were shown Wine running on an emulated version of Android.

Dell waves goodbye to smartphone business

There are few reasons to use MediaMonkey over the competition, as the player's tagging and syncing features allow for some deep organization.

Android expected to cut into Apple’s tablet market share moving forward

There isn't any question that Apple's iPad line has been a major hit, but the time it's enjoying on top may not last much longer. Android has been slowly taking away Apple's market share with a number of excellent tablets (the Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 immediately come to mind), and that looks like it'll continue as we crawl toward 2016. IDC has released new predictions for the tablet market, and unsurprisingly, the predictions have Apple's share falling year after year moving forward.
