Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS

Canonical just released Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS. This is the 4th update to the 14.04 series which was originally released back in April 2014. It’s probably the most stable Ubuntu to date, after being baked in the oven the last 2 years. I don’t think they will release another one with this series since Ubuntu 16.04 just around the horizon.

The Google Unsend

I sent a rather important email the other day. After hitting the Send button, I watch Gmail post a message saying, “Your message has been sent. Undo. View Message.” I paid particular attention to the Undo message. It lasted for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 seconds later, it was gone. It seemed like an eternity if you’re watching it. The Undo Message feature is a nice to feature to have knowing that, you may accidentally send something you rather keep.

You have a 30 second window to decide to undo the send. In order to take advantage of this feature, you have to enable it because it’s not turned on by default within Gmail. To turn it on, go to Settings. It’s the one with the Gear image. Under General and look for and click on the Enable Undo Send. Enjoy the Gmail safety feature just in case you change your mind. You have 30 seconds to decide.

Cowells Live

This is Cowell’s Beach in Santa Cruz. The live stream is courtesy of Surfline. This is the free version. It streams for about 30 seconds at a time. Ads are sandwiched in between the streams. At the moment, there’s a big swell from the WNW bringing 3-5 foot waves, and occasional 6 foot waves. If it’s going good at Cowell’s, Mavericks at the moment is firing at 20-25 feet, with occasional 30 foot waves.

Identify Your iPad Model

If you’re having a little trouble identifying your iPad, Apple has a page that identifies the year and the model of your iPad. You need to search for your model number at the back of your device between the FCC ID and the Serial Number. You’ll find some number that starts with an “A” similar to this “A1489.” On the Apple page, you need to search for your model number. It will tell you what iPad version do you have.
