toggle switch has been added to the Privacy settings dialog to
disable/enable the feature.
 * Concern about the encryption of traffic – traffic is now encrypted.
 * Concern about adult content being displayed via the lens –
significant changes have been made to blacklist certain results based
on keywords.
 * Concern about the legal requirements of this feature under European
law – a Legal Notice link has now been added to the dash to make the
terms of use clear for those using the dash.

=== Jason Gerard DeRose: Killer Apps for Ubuntu? ===

Jason Gerard DeRose writes about the watching Ubuntu Community team
charity marathon and highlights one of the questions asked of the
team, “Will there be a killer app for Ubuntu?” The Community team
answered, “No, there wont be. Killer App is simply over, because these
days important applications tend to be cross-platform and web apps are
replacing most traditional applications anyway.”

DeRose doesn’t share the opinion of the Ubuntu community team and
states, “I think there will absolutely be Killer Apps for Ubuntu,
because Linux and Ubuntu have strengths that make Ubuntu the best
platform for solving certain problems.”

held in London at George Inn. He also notes that for those who are in

others.

Anyone interested can “head over to the revival wiki page
(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FutureOfThePapercutsProject ) and join the
Papercuts Ninja team on Launchpad

Ubuntu project--from testing, documentation, and marketing, to
brainstorming and answering other users’ questions in online forums.

In this post George writes that financial contributions to Ubuntu are
now easier, stating, “By introducing a ‘contribute’ screen as part of
the desktop download process, people can choose to financially support
different aspects of Canonical’s work: from gaming and apps,
developing the desktop, phone and tablet, to co-ordination of
upstreams or supporting Ubuntu flavours.”

He concludes with a reminder that “Ubuntu will always be free to use,
share and develop. [...] and we hope that you’ll join us in helping to
build the future of computing, however you choose to contribute.”

== In The Press ==

=== Is Ubuntu Shutting Out Old PCs? ===

Matt Hartley of Datamation argues that while Ubuntu has made amazing
progress over the years, it’s becoming too high-end and the risks
becoming too demanding for slower hardware, especially older PCs,
despite the fact that LiveCDs and the ability to run on older hardware
used to be one of Ubuntu’s strong points.
