When was the last time you could say that about Windows? A major system failure tends to be just that, a major failure. You spend countless hours trying to get things to work, or on the phone with tech support, and meanwhile you are losing precious business up hours. But with Ubuntu, a system error tends to amount to about as much as a sneeze. You say bless you and move on.
So why haven't more people, and more businesses, adopted Ubuntu as the preferred OS? Marketing, that's why. Windows became the dominant OS not because it was the better choice, or it was the most consumer friendly, it got there because of patent rights and marketing, and since this post is about marketing, we'll ignore the part about patents (not necessarily Linux's strong point).
So, I'm posting this rant to tell people that I'm supporting Ubuntu now, and that we will be offering budget PCs to people cheap if they are willing to try the new OS. Depending on our parts supply line, the should run from about $190-$250, and connect directly to an HDTV or standard monitor. If you have any questions, just give us a call or drop by the shop. We will gladly show a demo of Ubuntu to anyone interested.
Till then catch you on the flip side.

Crazy how fast life flies by when your world is in chaos. With everything I've had happen this year, nothing has really happened on this blog. So on to the updates then:
First order of business, Digital Fruit has moved. We no longer reside on Ruby Ct, so it doesn't make much sense to do business there. I'm not posting the new address here, but if you need computer work done, or want us to work on an ad spot or commercial, or maybe you just want to jam out and make some music, then just call Digital Fruit at the number listed on our contacts page.

So, if my ears have heard correctly, T-Mobile stands to shake things up a heck of a lot in the next few months by braking with industry standard and charging people for there phones. This revolutionary new idea sounds like a bad one, because we are so used to getting free phones, but there is a catch, my friends, there is a catch. There will be no contract.
That's right ladies and gents, T-Mobile is doing away with the ball and chain, and setting there customers free from expensive-two-year-binding-soul-stealing-contracts. And what's better is they are moving to a much better pricing model. All the glorious smart-phone goodness will be had for $50, $60, or $70 a month, depending on the level of service you want. They will also be giving truly unlimited data, which will win back a lot of there old customers on its own. And to top it off, you can get a payment plan set up to pay for your phone.
Honestly, as crazy as it sounds, this is almost enough to make me switch to T-Mobile. The highest price bracket is almost half of a standard cell contract, and that is with adjust 3gb of data. I think I will wish the best of luck to T-Mobile, and hope they get better tower coverage in my area, as that would be the straw to break the camel's back.
Till next time, catch you on the flip side.

So, it finally arrived! After three whole months of waiting, our first Raspberry Pi has arrived. After overcoming an unforeseen hurdles, like needing an SD card of at least 2gb or larger to download the OS onto, we now have it up and running. We're still scrounging around for a spare keyboard and mouse to use on it.
As we get more images and projects operating on it, we will be posting more tutorials on Raspberry Pi use, so keep your eyes open.
