Today's Story Highlights

GeckoLinux: A Polished Distro Just Got Smoother
GeckoLinux offers both seasoned users and new distro adopters an easy
way to try an openSuse-based spin that is loaded with features and an
ample inventory of the leading Linux desktops. The developer released a
major update of GeckoLinux earlier this week. I enjoyed testing the beta
version last fall, and I was even more pleased with the added
embellishments packed into this final version.

Google Assistant Makes CES Splash
Since launching the original Echo smart speaker in 2014, Amazon has
expanded its line of Alexa voice-activated devices to reach a dominant
position in the marketplace. Realizing it has a bit of catching up to do
and possibly may need to redefine the ground rules, Google this week put
the consumer electronics world on notice that this no longer is a one-
horse race. Google threw down its gauntlet at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

Apple Skirts Tech Addiction Issue in Response to Worried Investors
Apple has responded to an open letter from investors who called for the
company to address the negative impact of the iPhone on children and
teens. Jana Partners and the California State Teachers' Retirement
System have urged Apple to give parents more choices and tools to help
ensure that young consumers are using the company's products "in an
optimal manner."

CES 2018: Artificial Intelligence at Home and Behind the Wheel
Artificial intelligence dominated CES 2018 in a big way on Monday with
major announcements on connected car advances and home system
technologies. Google all but declared war on Amazon with its Google
Assistant voice technology making its presence known at nearly every
turn on the showroom floor. LG rolled out a new lineup of high-end AI
OLED and Super UHD televisions infused with its ThinQ AI technology and
Alpha 9 technology.

With Linux, You Don't Get One Kernel of Truth... You Get Many
As much as I love to poke at the inner workings of my computer, I'll
admit that until recently, I didn't give much thought to which version
of the Linux kernel my desktop system was running. For most desktop
users, this isn't all that odd. Compatibility of kernel modules is often
critical for servers and production systems, but day-to-day desktop
usage doesn't change much from update to update.
