(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); In a way it’s odd and unusual that technology companies, that usually want you to buy the very latest version of the thing you only bought a year ago, are so willing these days to make it easy for you to update your device.  Now Apple has released the latest version of their iOS operating system for both the iPhone and the iPod Touch.

Download and install Ubuntu faster with a Minimal CD

Download and install Ubuntu faster with a Minimal CD

I recently found the need to install Ubuntu on a machine with a poor CD drive (and no USB ports) that could not read large amounts of data, but could manage to read smaller amounts of data.

I found a bootable disc image smaller than 10MB which downloads the packages on the machine on which they’ll be installed, rather than having to burn them onto a disc and then run them.
