What is this? iOS vs Ubuntu & Android
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 31, 2013
Once my customer pay a visit to the factory. He take some photos from his iPhone in production line. When we return to the Wi-Fi covered office, he put his iPhone directly inside his bag … 15-minutes later, he brings out his iPad and begins to ask for an explanation by showing us some photos ... and I'm amazed.
The photos is a photos that he just taken from production line. How can it be? What kind of service is this?
Is there any such service to works in Ubuntu and Android?
SORRY to everybody who think this is a stupid question ... for that was I am.
My knowledge to technology is far than insufficient ... SORRY
... and SORRY for my bad English

I believe Android is built for mobile phones and mobile internet devices. Whereas Ubuntu is a full fledged OS meant to be installed on larger computing devices.
iPhone vs Android
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 9, 2011
I was talking to some friends yesterday and one them said they were going to be getting rid of their Android phone and replacing it with an iPhone because iPhones are much less susceptible to getting viruses. I pointed out that Android phones are based on Linux so they wouldn't get all the Windows viruses but that any phone can get a virus if you download a rogue app. I also recall reading somewhere that the iPhone has different OS to Apple computers which they don't have that added security.
I'm really interested in what others think about this and which they prefer: Android or iPhones.
Android vs. Ubuntu Mobile

As a die-hard fan of Ubuntu, I have waited patiently for a handphone that could run LibreOffice. I was keeping tab on Android phones but surfing the internet, I read recent development of Ubuntu Mobile. Will a respectable Ubuntu Mobile phone be a reality soon? This I will definitely wait for but what phone manufacturer would use it?

KDE takes on Android, Apple's iOS on smartphones and tablets
By Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols | October 9, 2011, 11:47am PDT
Summary: KDE, one of the leading Linux desktops, is taking dead aim at Android and Apple’s iOS on smartphones and tablets.
If another group was trying to take on Android and Apple’s iOS on smartphones and tablets, I’d dismiss them. RIM, BlackBerry’s parent company, is having a heck of a time getting anyone to buy into PlayBook and while HP TouchPad users loved it,HP killed the TouchPad after only a few weeks. So, why should anyone think that KDE, makers of one of the two most popular Linux desktops, should stand a chance with Plasma Active? Well, because KDE has a long history of delivering the goods with minimal resources....
Can KDE take on both Android and iOS and be a serious contender?...if yes or no what is your intellectual reasoning?

Don't know if I can put this here, but I wanted to get some opinions on which you think is better and why. An explanation would be nice.
what security risks are real in Ubuntu (and Android)?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2011
I've just gone back to Ubuntu 10.04 for the moment, and don't have mobile Broadband credit to add the updates. Because of this and because I've just bought an Android tablet (£75 on eBay) I'm wondering what are the _real_ risks with Linux, as opposed to what are theoretical risks which we generally install updates to protect us against.
I've seen someone say once, possibly in this category of this forum, that with Linux even with ufw not enabled we are pretty safe. I've enabled ufw, I always do, and I don't see anything weird happening, and have also been in this lack of many updates situation several times while distro-hopping.
Is it that various breaches _would_ eventually or soon happen, or that they may, or that the real risks are practically negligible? If I installed 9.04 (still my favorite edition) or 8.04 now, how would the real security issues change?
I don't use any risky sites, mostly just Gmail, Wikipedia, Vimeo and a couple of forums like this these days. My brother's V
Installing Ubuntu for Android

Pretty self-explanatory - how do I actually install "Ubuntu for Android" on my Sony Xperia S, and where can I download it from (the Ubuntu for Android page doesn't seem to have any download links...)?
Syncing Ubuntu and Android 4.1
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2013
I have recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Victory with Virgin Mobile. It's a pretty neat phone and my first time using an Android device. One particular thing I was looking forward to with this phone was syncing my music with greater ease than my old iPod Touch. Turns out I was wrong and it's actually become somewhat more difficult.
In trying to synchronize my music I set the phone to connect to the computer using the PTP connection so it would be recognized as a camera. If Banshee manages to recognize that there is in fact a device connected it will not show me any of the music that I previously synchronized with Banshee.
Edit: I'd also like to note that when I connect the phone to my computer Ubuntu recognizes two separate devices. One I assume is the phone's internal memory and the other being the Micro SD card. When I search the Micro SD card there is a directory labeled 'Music', which is empty. When I search the mounted Android file system there is also a directory la
Android Tablet or Android Phone?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2011
I was just wondering. What do you think is the best deal of these two:
A.) Get an Android Tablet, throttle up my cable internet to the 69.99 USD /mo 25 Mbps download 3 Mbps upload, so I can game better.
B.) Get an android plan of 119 or so USD a month, no gaming, get rid of my cable Internet, and cable phone?
I can't have both. Note that the Plan A. would be cheaper, due to it being 69.99 + 14.99 USD/mo. I don't travel a lot, and when I do, there's usually a wifi point I can connect to. Gaming cannot be tethered easily without harsh fees above the normal rate:
For people who support tethering:
260 KB/sec average on a 3D MMORPG. That's about 0.25390625 Megabytes of Data. Follow along the usage track:
This is considering 5 Hours a day:
0.25390625 * 60 = 15.234375 MB an hour
15.234375 * 5 = 76.171875 MB a day
76.171875 * 7 = 533.203125 MB a week
533.203125 * 4.5 = 2,399.41406 MB (or 2.4 GB) a month. (Carriers usually round up to the nearest megabyte)
