New Apple accessibility videos showcase real people using life-changing assistive tech



Sady Paulson bobs her head skillfully from side-to-side, gently hitting the red and yellow buttons fixed to her wheelchair’s headrest. Her head swings fluidly in a concentrated pattern: Left, left, right, left, right, left.

As she taps the buttons, she carefully selects a clip of the Golden Gate Bridge on her iMac, the red structure gleaming against pale blue waters. Using another series of button taps, Sady fast-forwards through the footage using a video editing program, plucking out a portion of waves lapping on the shore beneath the bridge. A few more taps of her head to the left, and the clip glides into place, finishing off a short film on San Francisco’s scenery.  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.
