A message on the Ubuntu developers list has some really good news for fans of Canonical's fledgling Ubuntu Touch mobile OS -- it's no longer running inside or on top of Android. Previously, Ubuntu Touch booted into Android and used a chroot to virtualize the Ubuntu OS on top of the Android core, much like hackers have been doing since the days of the Nexus One.
But Oliver Grawert tells us today that this is no longer the case, and the OS now boots into Ubuntu and virtualizes Android services inside an LXC (LinuX Container) during boot. This is a complete 180 flip, and is great news for all fans of Ubuntu on their mobile.
The changes are available in the daily builds, have a look here if you're interested in running one. No word on when things will be merged into the official installer, but we imagine it won't be too far in the future.
The Charge 5 is Fitbit's latest fitness tracker, and it's easily the company's best band yet. It's been updated to reflect Fitbit's new design language as seen on the Luxe, Versa 3, and Sense, and it features some of its most advanced health sensors. Even though it's Fitbit's most expensive fitness band ever, we still think you should consider this device over most Android smartwatches.
The iPhone 13 is a minor upgrade on the iPhone 12, but it still will likely outsell its competition by leaps and bounds...unless Google manages to steal some of Apple's customers. Here's why the Pixel 6 is the company's best chance to save the brand and take advantage of Apple's uninspiring year.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits takes the best parts of beloved games before it to create an adventure that's a lot of fun to play. Though not perfect, it's one of the best exclusive indies to hit PS5 in a long time.
The standard strap included with the Galaxy Watch is fine, but a replacement band can offer much more customization. We compiled a list of alternative bands to switch up your style, and some are even reinforced with durable materials, so your wearable can take whatever you throw at it.
