Uber and its Indian rival Ola are racing against each other in better serving Indian customers on slower networks.

Not long ago, Uber rolled out a feature in India that lets people book a cab without downloading the app. Today, India’s largest cab-hailing service Ola announced that users on its platform can now book a cab even when there is no internet connectivity.

Dubbed ‘Ola Offline’, the feature comes into play when a customer doesn’t have good (or any) data connectivity. When that happens, Ola app offers users with two options: the usual, Retry; and a new ‘Book via SMS’. Tapping the latter takes them to the messaging app, where they see a pre-entered text message requesting Ola to book a cab. 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.
