All over the country are food deserts – generally urban, impoverished or isolated communities that are devoid of grocery stores and farmers markets, and thus lack access to fresh food.

Local Roots is a Los Angeles-based urban agriculture company that is seeking to fill this void. Through a little bit of creativity and a whole lot of technology, the team has developed a solution to this growing problem.

“We see Local Roots as pioneering the way for making urban agriculture a real solution to the problem of food access in this country,” says Allison Towle, Director of Corporate Communication.

Local Roots designs, builds and operates indoor growing centers – called TerraFarms – that are made from shipping containers. Each pod contains five acres of farmland. Let that sink in; five acres of fresh food is grown within the footprint of a 40-foot metal box. Read more…

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
