Although the Ubuntu developers have shown hard efforts in order to realize the idea of total convergence existed for several years , but in essence they are not the only ones trying to do . If you look closely at the work of other companies , such as Microsoft and Apple , you will see that Windows and iOS both seemed also refer to the same direction of the total convergence .
Mark Shuttleworth , founder of Canonical , probably one of the first to talk about the convergence . And he felt that Ubuntu will certainly be able to provide better capabilities than what is sought by Microsoft's Windows 8 platform as an example , and even more than that , the existence of so far besides Ubuntu itself is a platform that is freely available to the users .
If Canonical maintain this high level development steps , convergence is of course referring to Mark Shuttleworth will be preceded from anything done by Microsoft or Apple though .

It Is Possible To Aid The Prevention Of Motorcycle Accidents

During the hotter months of the year, especially with the high cost of fuel, many motorcycles are found on the highways. All drivers must follow a preventive driving style if we are to succeed in cutting down motorcycling accidents, now that the number of motorcycle riders is so much greater. It is possible to make a contribution to preventing accidents by carrying out certain things.

It Is Possible To Aid The Prevention Of Motorcycle Accidents picture cars alerts
Safety begins with motorcycle riders accepting the need for them to wear safety apparel at all times, and to adjust the speed they drive at to the conditions. If you are still developing confidence as a rider, steer clear of freeways and crowded streets. Doing so will reduce the risk of yourself as well as others of having an accident. Before going for a ride, make certain that all parts of the bike operate well, and pay special attention to the controls. Whether using a bike or driving an automobile, anyone in control of a vehicle should not drink when driving. Drinking of alcohol has a tendency to play a significant part in a great many motorbike accidents.

A critical part of riding a bike is that you have to continuously be aware of what other vehicles are doing. Motorbikes may not be always apparent to somebody driving a car, more often than just in the usual blind spots. This means bikers have got to especially beware cars suddenly swerving into their lane, considering that the driver may be unaware of them. When driving into the dark, make sure that your headlights are working, as well as everything else. With not much experience, your chance of having an accident is greater. Novice riders have much less understanding of the rules of the road, and are a lot less relaxed when operating their motorcycle. That does not mean that more mature riders who may not be paying attention, won’t find themselves in an accident.

Hindrances in the path are more dangerous for bikers. Smaller objects hit by a car or truck without much problem can have perilous consequences for a bike rider. Every person that drives an automobile should keep in mind blind spots, and strive to pay attention to where all other road users are at all times, motorcycles especially. Make sure you look at your mirrors more than once before you make a move, and consistently use your signals. Older design motorcycles lack turn signals, so keep a close watch for any turns. At nighttime it is advisable to pay attention, because that one light heading towards you might be a motorcycle, or a car with a headlight out.

It is best to follow a motorcycle in front of you by a longer distance than you would a car. Any unexpected stopping that triggers a rear end crash will be a lot worse when you rear end a motorcycle. The injuries suffered will probably be a lot more extreme than if it were a car. Accidents are usually unexpected, and can happen to anybody, even very experienced riders. Almost always there is the potential for an accident, so minimize any risk by staying vigilant and driving proactively..

Mexico clashes leave seven police officers dead

Police officer patrols in Ayotlan, where three officers and a civilian were shot dead on 23 December Gunmen have ambushed and shot dead seven policemen in two separate clashes in western Mexico, officials have said.
Attackers opened fire as police responded to reports of a traffic accident in a rural area of Michoacan state, killing four officers.
Three officers and a civilian were killed in another attack in the neighbouring state of Jalisco.
It was not clear who was behind the killings but the region has been plagued by drug-related violence.
The Knights Templar and New Generation drug cartels vie for control of the illegal drugs trade in Michoacan.
The first attack happened in Brisenas, a small town on the border with Jalisco, where earlier this month the police chief and three other officials were kidnapped by unidentified attackers and are still missing.
According to officials, gunmen ambushed officers on Sunday as they drove to a reported road accident. Four officers were killed and five others injured.
A short while later, attackers opened fire on police in Ayotlan in Jalisco state, killing three officers and a civilian.
Some 60,000 people have died across Mexico since 2006 when the previous government under Felipe Calderon deployed the military against the drugs gangs.
Earlier this month, President Enrique Pena Nieto announced the creation of a new national force as part of continuing efforts to tackle crime and violence.
Mr Pena Nieto, who took office on 1 December, said the new militarised force would initially be 10,000 strong.

Nigeria: Blaze hits Lagos after fireworks blast

Buildings on fire in Lagos, Nigeria (26/12/12) Rescue teams are reported to have had difficulties getting to the scene of the fire
An explosion in a warehouse has sparked a major fire in Lagos, Nigeria's largest city and commercial capital.
The country's emergency services said a fireworks store in the busy market area of Lagos Island exploded, and the blaze quickly spread to other buildings.
The blast reportedly shook windows of homes miles away and a thick cloud of smoke could be seen over the island.
It was not immediately clear if there were any fatalities nor what the cause of the fire was.
The BBC's Tomi Oladipo, in Lagos, says he saw people with shrapnel wounds some distance from the fire and that it is quite likely anyone closer would have been worse affected.
Location map
The Nigerian Red Cross said it had treated at least 30 people, AFP news agency reported.
Thousands of people in the area gathered to watch, as the fire destroyed neighbouring buildings.
Our correspondent said emergency services had problems reaching the scene of the fire because of the huge crowds, and did not arrive until about an hour after the blast.

Kenya says AU forces storm Somali rebel city of Kismayo

African Union (AU) forces have launched a beach assault and taken control of parts of Kismayo, the last major stronghold in Somalia held by Islamist militants, Kenya's military says.
The port city has been a bastion of the al-Qaeda-aligned group al-Shabab.
Al-Shabab spokesmen told news agencies that fierce fighting was now under way.
The Kenyan troops are part of the AU's Amisom force, which is trying to wrest control of the country for the newly elected UN-backed president.
Kenyan military spokesman Col Cyrus Oguna confirmed to the BBC that parts of Kismayo had been captured and the rest was expected to fall soon.
Col Oguna said the joint operation of Kenyan Defence Forces and Somali government troops had begun at 02:00 local time (23:00 GMT Thursday) and was "basically amphibious".
Col Oguna said: "We cannot give casualty figures at the moment, the damage has not been assessed, but I can tell you our forces are already in Kismayo."
He told the BBC: "There are some parts that still will be under the control of al-Shabab because we only got there a couple of hours ago, and Kismayo is a big city."
Amisom released a statement saying it had "successfully inserted" troops "to liberate the people of Kismayo to enable them to lead their lives in peace, stability and security".
It urged "all fighters remaining in Kismayo to lay down their arms".
Reinforcements were being sent, the statement said.
Al-Shabab spokesmen said fierce clashes were taking place.
Al-Shabab commander in Kismayo, Sheik Mohamed Abu-Fatuma, told Agence France-Presse news agency: "The enemy using military boats have deployed hundreds of soldiers in the coast late last night and the mujahideen fighters are engaging heavy fighting now with them. God willing they will be defeated."
Mohamed Mohamed, of the BBC's Somalia Service, has spoken to residents of Kismayo, who said four military ships had approached from the north, landed and captured territory around the university.
Checkpoints were set up, with one eyewitness reporting that the AU forces appeared to include American or European troops. There have been numerous reports of US special forces operating against the Islamist militants in Somalia.
However, the US Africa command said on Friday it was "not participating in Kenya's military activities in the region".
The Kismayo residents told the BBC they had seen no Kenyan or Somali government forces inside the city proper.
Other residents told Reuters news agency they could hear fighting outside the city.
One, Ismail Suglow, told the agency: "Al-Shabab have gone towards the beach. Many residents have taken their guns. The ships poured many AU troops on the beach."
There are also reports that helicopters are attacking the town.
The al-Shabab-controlled radio station is still said to be on air.
Al-Shabab also used a Twitter account to say its forces were still in control of the city.
Earlier this week, Kenyan military jets had bombed the airport in Kismayo, destroying an armoury and warehouse used by Islamist militants.
Some 10,000 people have fled Kismayo in the past week, the United Nations refugee agency has estimated.
On Thursday, leaflets were dropped urging remaining civilians to evacuate.
BBC World Service News Africa editor, Martin Plaut, says al-Shabab has tried to halt the exodus and has urged civilians to join their fight.
He says the advance by Kenyan forces, Somali government troops and the pro-government Ras Kambone militia has been delayed as all roads into the city had to be swept inch by inch for mines. This, our correspondent says, explains the attack from the sea.
Kismayo has helped al-Shabab generate millions of dollars from charcoal exports, the UN says, despite a Security Council ban on countries buying such goods from Somalia.
African Union troops pushed al-Shabab from the capital, Mogadishu, in August 2011 and have been slowly taking control of other towns since.
However, the militants are still highly active in much of the countryside in south and central Somalia.
Kenya began its intervention in Somalia nearly a year ago after a spate of cross-border attacks blamed on al-Shabab.
Since the overthrow of President Siad Barre in 1991, Somalia has seen clan-based warlords, Islamist militants and its neighbours all battling for control.

Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake (12 on) Review

The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake is a new breed of vehicle that fits firmly in the ‘sporty estate’ club that premium car manufacturers are now keen to exploit. There’s clearly something appealing about a fast five-door. It’s the classic ‘you can have it all’ model, offering practicality and performance in one slick package. 

Mercedes-Benz isn’t holding back on the hyperbole either, claiming that the CLS Shooting Brake is ‘automotive independence at its most beautiful’. That’s arguable since the concept of ‘automotive independence’ is as nebulous as it comes, and beauty, well… that’s in the eye of the beholder. It’s called a Shooting Brake which, to the person on the street, is essentially a coupe with a tailgate. A sort of jumped-up estate, if you will.Inside the CLS there are five seats but the middle seat is a token gesture and only fit for small people. It’s not much more expensive than the Coupe and the go-faster AMG versions are only slightly more expensive than their four-door equivalents.

Quality interior

There’s no doubting the CLS Shooting Brake is a classy piece of kit that’ll appeal to the well-heeled. There’s loads of hand-stitched leather, a luggage compartment lined with high-quality carpet and if you want to really set yourself even further apart from the proletariat you can fit optional designer aluminium loading rails or a curiously described ‘designo’ wooden luggage compartment floor. Cherry tree wood has been harvested for the CLS and it combines with the inlaid smoked oak and aluminium rails in the boot. This is the sort of stuff you see on yachts, so if you’re moderately loaded you’ll feel positively Abramovich-esque if you buy one of these and feel satisfied that your boot looks like a boat deck.

The Shooting Brake offers five interior colours, five trim designs and three qualities of leather to choose from. Customers have a choice of three exclusive wood types: high-gloss brown burr walnut, high-gloss black ash and satin-finish light-brown poplar. A completely new addition comes in the form of porcelain interior detailing and that’s alongside a mixture of satin and high-gloss finishes used on the metal surfaces.

Practicality and performance

In terms of practicality, it’s pretty imperious. The boot offers 590 litres of stowage space with the rear seats up and 1,550 litres with them down. That’s bigger than a standard C-Class Estate, but nowhere near an E-Class though. An optional trailer coupling is also available.

Choice of engines

The entry-level model is the CLS250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY which produces 201bhp. Combined fuel consumption is 53.3 mpg with CO2 emissions of 139g/km and a 0-62mph time of 7.8 seconds. There’s also a six-cylinder model: the CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY. It produces 261bhp, returns 47mpg, emits 161g/km of CO2 and accelerates from 0-62mph in 6.6 seconds. Then there’s the rather more bonkers 5.5-litre petrol-engined 63 AMG version that goes like a bullet.

Safety systems

More than a dozen driving assistance systems to prevent traffic accidents and reduce the severity of a collision are included. Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist are available as part of the Driving Assistance package, in combination with Distronic Plus and the Pre-Safe system that preps the car if it thinks an accident is imminent. Both assistance systems are not only able to detect an unintentional lane-change or vehicles in the blind spot, but they can also correct the direction of travel by gentle brake intervention if the driver ignores the visual or audible danger warnings.

Will the car attract the attentions of British luxury car buyers? Read the full Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake review to find out.

2013 Ram Heavy Duty First Look

As they're coming just a month after the debut of the updated 2013 Ram 1500, it's no surprise that the new 2013 Heavy Duty 2500 and 3500 models share the light-duty truck's good looks. More important, though, is what Ram has done under the sheetmetal. Updates to nearly every major component have Ram claiming best-in-class towing, payload, frontal load, and gross vehicle weight rating.

The updates you'll be most interested in are under the hood. The biggest news for serious haulers is that the vaunted Cummins diesel now comes in three flavors. The lowest output version makes a stout 350 horsepower and 660 lb-ft of torque and comes with the only six-speed manual transmission in the segment. That's an improvement of 50 lb-ft from last year's stick-shift diesel, and it's matched with a new "wear-compensating" clutch that's supposed to feel like new until the day you finally wear it out.

If you don't feel like rowing your own, or you need more power, the second option will net you 370 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque routed through a six-speed automatic. For those not willing to simply upgrade to a Peterbilt, the "High-Output" Cummins cranks out 385 horsepower and an even more ridiculous 850 lb-ft of torque and puts it through a new Aisin six-speed automatic.
Even more important than all that for you serious truckers, though, is the addition of Diesel Exhaust Fluid. For a few years, Ram guys were able to boast that their diesels didn't have to worry about running out of DEF, but no more. The on-demand system features a heated tank for cold climates and, unlike some competitors, won't cut engine power when fluid runs low. You'll still have to refill it, though. The fill port is located right next to the capless diesel fuel filler.
The upgraded diesel has other tricks up its sleeve. All the cooling systems, from the engine to the transmission to the intercooler to the exhaust gas recirculation system, have been upgraded. A selective catalyst reduction system can also be added and is compatible with B-20 biodiesel. On the other end, a new Active Air Intake system can pull air from the front of the truck, under the hood away from snow, or both for maximum power and efficiency. Add it all together and Ram claims fuel economy will jump 10 percent and oil changes can be stretched to 15,000 miles.

The 5.7-liter Hemi gasoline V-8 engine is now available on both the 2500 and 3500 models and continues to produce 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, meaning it didn't get the same bump as the 1500. In either 2500 or 3500 trucks, it comes only with the six-speed automatic gearbox.

The improvements aren't just in the engine bay. Ram has also beefed up the drivetrain with a new 11.8-inch rear axle and a front axle that automatically disconnects to reduce drag in the drivetrain and pick up an extra mile per gallon. Two new Borg Warner transfer cases are available, either manual or automatic, and each features a 2.64 crawling ratio and a locking differential.
Making use of all that power requires a sturdy frame. To beef things up, Ram added more cross-members, widened the front rails, and fully boxed the rears. A factory installed rear cross-member includes provisions for gooseneck and fifth-wheel hitches. The conventional hitch at the rear has been upgraded to a Class 5 and can pull an astonishing 17,000 pounds with up to 1800 pounds on the tongue. Also attached to the frame are a new three-link front suspension and a Hotchkiss leaf spring rear suspension that up the payload and gross vehicle weight ratings, though Ram won't tell us yet how much. "Best-in-class" is all it'll say. Keeping the load in check is a standard electronic stability control program and an upgraded steering rack.

For fleet buyers, Ram adds a vehicle system interface module that allows easy access to the truck's electrical systems for factory and aftermarket modules to monitor performance and maintenance. Ram even went so far as to move the badges off the door so they'd be out of the way of your company's logo. Did we mention all these upgrades also apply to 3500, 4500, and 5500 commercial chassis-cab trucks? Those also claim best-in-class gross axle weight ratings on the 4500 and 5500 as well as the largest fuel tanks and brakes in the class and a best-in-class dual 220-amp alternator charging system.
Clearly, then, there's something for everyone on the new Heavy Duty Ram. It looks better; it's got more features; it's got more power; and it can tow and haul more than ever before. Throw in a claimed best-in-class powertrain warranty of five years or 100,000 miles, and what more could a truck guy ask for?

Audi Unveils Premium Hot Hatch and Slick Hybrid Concept

The all-new 2014 A3Sportback is the star of Audi's show here at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
This is the second iteration of the all-new A3 to be seen. Yes, it looks a lot like the old one, but it's an all-new car underneath, one that is much more economical, bigger and better-quality inside — and, we're told, more able on the road.
Also on display are the RS 5 Cabriolet, the impeccably finished and detailed S3 300-horsepower premium hot hatch, and the face-lifted R8. No surprises here.
However, Audi did shock onlookers with its concept car, the Crosslane. It features a futuristic aluminum and carbon-fiber space-frame chassis that's designed to leave key structural elements on show. It's partly born through frustration from the engineers; Audi has all this futuristic technology, a spokesman told us, but nobody knows about it because the car bodies hide it all.
The Crosslane concept showcases this technology using minimized body panels and on-display structural parts such as the distinctive Audi grille.
