Official Kinect drivers now available for Windows and Ubuntu

If the recent demonstrations of the Kinect's potential have you all hot and bothered, brace yourself: official drivers are now available for both Windows and Ubuntu. It's all thanks to the OpenNI (Natural Interaction) initiative, where PrimeSense -- the company behind the Kinect -- happens to be one of the founding members. OpenNI aims "to accelerate the introduction of Natural Interaction...

Ubuntu One app for iOS now supports AirPlay streaming

The interface may still be a bit spartan, but the Ubuntu One app for iOS has added an important new feature in its latest update. If you're running iOS 4.2 you can now take advantage of AirPlay to pump tunes to compatible devices like an Apple TV box. At last you can blast your cloud-synced tunes out of the home theater system as you wander around the house, controlling playback from your...

Ubuntu One client for Windows goes beta

One knock against Canonical's Ubuntu One sync service is the fact that clients for other operating systems aren't available. That gives Dropbox a pretty big edge at the moment -- though Canonical has taken one huge step toward leveling the playing field with the release of a beta Ubuntu One app for Windows. OMG! Ubuntu has gotten beta access already and shared a handful of screenshots....

Ubuntu One Windows sync app coming, Mobile music streaming to cost $4 per month

Ever since it was first announced, Ubuntu One has drawn comparisons to Dropbox. With cross-platform desktop apps and mobile versions for iOS, Android, and Blackberry, Dropbox has a bit of an edge. A Ubuntu One Windows app has been talked about for quite some time, and the Wiki now states that a beta version is coming soon -- which should help close the gap. There's also the...

Ubuntu One Music store ready to land in Lucid?

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx is expected to land on April 29th - and could land with a big bang. As we have reported in November Canonical, sponsor and developer of Ubuntu, is working hard on an iTunes-like music store. Rumors are saying that the music store will be a part of the Ubuntu single sign on service - providing a single, central login service for all Ubuntu-related sites and...

Canonical working on an iTunes-like music store for Ubuntu?

One program people I know miss when they've tried to switch to Linux is iTunes. Like it or not, Apple's desktop app has gained the reputation of being the place to buy music and video downloads. But iTunes on Linux? Fuhgettaboutit. That leaves an opportunity for someone in the Linux community to step up and deliver an alternative. Enter Canonical, who may be preparing to do just that in time...

CouchDB dev unwittingly gives Ubuntu users cloud-based nightmares

You've likely heard about Ubuntu One by now - we've mentioned it a couple times here on Download Squad, and it's now making regular appearances on Karmic Koala beta desktops everywhere. Canonical made it clear from the get-go that Ubuntu 9.10 was going to pack plenty of cloud functionality for both desktops and servers. One piece of that puzzle is CouchDB, which developer Elliot Murphy was...

Beta testing begins for UbuntuOne, but I'll stick with DropBox

Microsoft has Live Sync, Apple has MobileMe, and Canonical is now beta testing their own user data synchronization service called UbuntuOne. The service works as you'd expect - set up your sync, access files anywhere, share your online items with anyone you choose. Currently lists two service levels - 2GB of storage is available free of charge, while an upgrade to 10GB will set you back $10 per...
