=== Jonathan Carter: Facebook ads for MOTU? ===

Jonathan Carter writes about ways how to attract more people to Ubuntu
as a MOTU and discusses his experience with a Facebook ad where he
states: "The ad was displayed a total of 20,661 times. That's what
Facebook considers it's "outreach". So out of the 129,520 users who
were targeted, it was displayed for 20,661 of them.  59 people clicked
on the link (that's about as far as you can get with $25).

Did it get more people interested in contributing to Ubuntu? I have no
idea. This experiment was mostly to see what $25 gets you in ads."

Carters says he still prefers Google+ as the way for attracting more
people to Ubuntu since, as he writes, there are more geeky people who
are eager to share information.

=== James Henstridge: u1ftp: a demonstration of the Ubuntu One API ===

James Henstridge shares a small program he wrote to showcase the power
of the Ubuntu One API. The program makes a users' files available via
a FTP daemon running on localhost, meaning that a users' files can be
made available by use of a file manager or FTP client without needing
the actual Ubuntu One client installed.

companies."

== In The Press ==

=== Why Google and Ubuntu don't say "Linux" ===

Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols of ZDNet has some thoughts of why Ubuntu and
Google "don't use the "L" word" and writes  "You see this isn't about
reality. It's about perception. Canonical and Google rather than try
to fight how Linux is seen by most people ... have chosen to dodge the
Linux brand issue entirely."

http://www.zdnet.com/why-google-and-ubuntu-dont-say-linux-7000000221/

=== Shuttleworth: Why Windows 8 made us ditch GPL Linux loader ===

Gavin Clarke of The Register reports on Mark Suttleworth's explanation
as to why they decided to switch from the GPL licensed GRUB2 boot
loader to Intel's efilinux. Clarke writes: "According to Shuttleworth,
this decision was taken because there is too much uncertainty
surrounding the terms of the FSF's GPL v3 and its implications for
Ubuntu's secret signing key."

== In The Blogosphere ==

=== Does Ubuntu Need More "Apps"? ===

The VAR Guy shares thoughts about the tech ecosystem that is pushing
"App" development and Canonical's own recent push to add more "Apps"
to the Ubuntu operating system. He expresses concern over changing
Ubuntu's packaging and software-distribution system to accommodate the
new "App" developers.

=== Ubuntu Security: Is There a Threat? ===

Matt Hartley of Datamation writes about some of the threats that exist
on Ubuntu (and Linux) when it comes to keeping the system secure.
Hartley covers the danger of unknown commands, antivirus software to
help protect Windows systems your Linux machine may share a network
with: firewalls, file sharing, updates and encryption and more.

=== Software Updater updated with refreshed look in Ubuntu 12.10 ===

Razvi of iloveubuntu.com covers the renaming of Update Manager to
Software Updater, including screenshots of style changes also made
with this new version.

=== Ubuntu Shaped Crop Circles Appear in Italy ===

Joey Sheddon, OMG! Ubuntu,  posts about Ubuntu-shaped impressions
which appeared in wheat fields in Italy. There are questions about who
could have possibly done it. Sheddons states: "So what is causing the
grain-groping geometry? UFOs? Aliens? Pranksters? The answer as to
what is making them - and why they chose to draw the Ubuntu logo -
remains a mystery."

=== ARM Wrestling: Fedora 17 vs. Ubuntu Linux ===

Michael Larabel of Phoronix installs ARM versions of Fedora and Ubuntu
on a PandaBoard and shares benchmarks. He concludes "While Fedora 17
on ARM is progressing nicely, unfortunately due to the OMAP4460
PandaBoard ES not being properly supported with its default kernel for
the PandaBoard, the performance is sub-par to Ubuntu. However, as ARM
hardware becomes increasingly common for low-powered desktops, it will
be interesting to see how the major Linux distributions wrestle it out
on the ARM front."

=== Red Hat & Ubuntu's UEFI solutions not good for FOSS ===

Chris Hall of FOSS Force writes about concerns with both Red Hat and
Ubuntu's UEFI solutions, and says "Instead of cooperating with
Microsoft's bid to put a lock on the operating system market, we
should be fighting them. For starters, it would appear there are some
antitrust issues that could possibly be pursued. Maybe Google could
put some pressure on companies making Android ARM devices to just say
no to Secure Boot without an easy-to-use "off" button."

=== 4 Fine Linux ARM Distros ===
