Some Uber employees want Kalanick back in the CEO chair

Travis Kalanick stepped down as Uber’s CEO earlier this week, leaving the CEO, COO, CFO and general counsel positions open. But while he’s no longer head of the company, Kalanick is far from gone. He’s still a member of the board and controls the majority of voting shares, meaning he’ll play a not insignificant role in selecting his successor. And it’s not exactly surprising that he would want to. He is the founder after all.

But some employees at Uber seem to want more than that. According to an email obtained by Recode, at least one person at the company wants him to be reinstated in an operational role and has been circulating an email to gain support in that venture.

Part of the email reads, “Nobody is perfect, but I fundamentally believe he can evolve into the leader Uber needs today and that he’s critical to its future success. I want the Board to hear from Uber employees that it’s made the wrong the decision in pressuring Travis to leave and that he should be reinstated in an operational role.” It then goes on to ask for colleagues’ support, including a link where they can back the effort.

Whether this push to bring Kalanick back in some capacity beyond board member will have any sway remains to be seen. And some suspect that with his aggressive, hands-on style, it will be hard for Kalanick to distance himself regardless of his position in the company. But with all of the company’s many scandals, fresh leadership is probably not a bad thing.

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.
