The CrossOver Full, Supported Version of WINE, is very, very nice! I purchased a copy back when I was running Linux as my work desktop. This new version is very targeted for Quicken users. Here’s the announcement from CodeWeavers I got via E-Mail.

“Hello all, I am delighted to announce that CodeWeavers has just released CrossOver 13.1.0 for both Mac OS X and Linux.

Facebook is 10 Years Old Today!

Here’s a Facebook post from Mark Zuckerberg: “Today is Facebook’s 10th anniversary.

It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. It’s rare to be able to touch so many people’s lives, and I try to remind myself to make the most of every day and have the biggest impact I can.

People often ask if I always knew that Facebook would become what it is today. No way.

I remember getting pizza with my friends one night in college shortly after opening Facebook. I told them I was excited to help connect our school community, but one day someone needed to connect the whole world.

I always thought this was important — giving people the power to share and stay connected, empowering people to build their own communities themselves.

When I reflect on the last 10 years, one question I ask myself is: why were we the ones to build this? We were just students. We had way fewer resources than big companies. If they had focused on this problem, they could have done it.

The only answer I can think of is: we just cared more.

While some doubted that connecting the world was actually important, we were building. While others doubted that this would be sustainable, you were forming lasting connections.

We just cared more about connecting the world than anyone else. And we still do today.

That’s why I’m even more excited about the next ten years than the last. The first ten years were about bootstrapping this network. Now we have the resources to help people across the world solve even bigger and more important problems.

Today, only one-third of the world’s population has access to the internet. In the next decade, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to connect the other two-thirds.

Today, social networks are mostly about sharing moments. In the next decade, they’ll also help you answer questions and solve complex problems.

Today, we have only a few ways to share our experiences. In the next decade, technology will enable us to create many more ways to capture and communicate new kinds of experiences.

It’s been amazing to see how all of you have used our tools to build a real community. You’ve shared the happy moments and the painful ones. You’ve started new families, and kept spread out families connected. You’ve created new services and built small businesses. You’ve helped each other in so many ways.

I’m so grateful to be able to help build these tools for you. I feel a deep responsibility to make the most of my time here and serve you the best I can.

Thank you for letting me be a part of this journey.”

New ASUS Chromebox!

ASUS ChromeboxThis looks so cool!

ASUS’ Chromebox arrives in March for $179

Emily Price for Engadget – “As promised late last year, ASUS unveiled its new Chromebox packing Intel’s fourth-generation Haswell processors today. The most compact Chromebox yet, the computer comes sporting either Intel’s Celeron 2955U or i3-4010 processor. Another i7 version of the box will be available outside of North America.

Under the hood of the svelte 4.88 x 4.88 x 1.65-inch device, you’ll get Intel-integrated HD graphics and 16GB of onboard storage. If you need more room to store your stuff, ASUS is also offering buyers 100GB of free cloud storage through Google Drive. Display-wise, the i3 and i7 Chromebox supports 4K Ultra High-Definition displays, and all three have HDMI and DisplayPort out ports for dual-monitor capabilities. You’ll also find four USB 3.0 ports on the device, as well as a built-in SD card reader. You can snag your own ASUS Chromebox in March starting at $179.”

Chromecast Development is Now OPEN!

Let the app development begin on the Chromecast! Impress me, dewds!

Google Opens Chromecast To All Developers

Frederic Lardinois for TechCrunch – “When Google launched its Chromecast HDMI dongle, it only allowed a small set of developers to create applications for it. The company always promised, though, that it would soon open the platform up to all developers. Today, it is doing just that.

The move opens up Chromecast to a whole range of new applications. Until now, unless you wanted to watch Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Pandora and a handful of other apps, you were out of luck. Now, there’s no reason why Spotify, Facebook, Twitter or any other app wouldn’t add some support for Chromecast as well.

Developers can now download the Google Cast Software Development Kit and build Chromecast support right into their apps and websites. The company says integrating the SDK is ‘simple.’ Developers do have to pay a $5 registration fee, though, which gives them access to the Google Cast SDK Developer Console so they can register their apps and authorize devices for testing.

Media apps can just use the default Chromecast media player to play back HTML5 media content, or they can customize the player with their own branding. For other apps, developers can create their own custom receiver applications that support standard streaming protocols like MPEG-DASH, HLS and Microsoft Smooth Streaming. To help developers get started, Google has also made a set of sample apps available on GitHub.”
