What does the "i" in iPhone stand for?
Since the release of the first iMac in 1998, Apple has been naming its devices with a i prefix: iMac, iPod, iTunes, iPhone, iPad ... but why Apple name their products starting with an "i"? When in 1998 Steve Jobs introduced the iMac, he said that "iMac comes from the marriage of the excitement of the Internet with the simplicity of Macintosh. We are targeting this for the #1 use that consumers tell us they want a computer for, which is to get on the Internet simply and fast." In 1998, the "i" in iMac stood for Internet. In 2007, when the iPhone was announced, one of its key ingredients was Internet communication ... and there you are again. Since then, the "i" has become a sort of brand for Apple.
What is the Linux Kernel?
The Linux kernel was created by Linus Torvalds (from Finland) in 1991, when he was still a student. It is the heart of the Linux operating system (every operating system includes its own kernel.) The kernel's job is to talk to the hardware and software, and to manage the system's resources: it talks to the hardware via the drivers that are included in the kernel itself - or installed later in modules. The Linux kernel is licensed via the GPL license: it is open source. People are free to look at the code, modify it to their needs, and then distribute it to others (under the same license).
Adobe to support Flash Player again on Linux
Adobe discontinued the plugin on Linux in 2012, but has now revealed that they're going to support Adobe Flash for Linux again. They are currently updating the beta channel with the newer versions of Linux Flash Plugin, and apparently Adobe plans to sync the plugin with the current version 23. Adobe has called this a "security initiative".
