Google Launches Its First Google Takeout Service (video)

Google Takeout is a new service that has been created by a team of engineers at Google called the Data Liberation Front (DLF) and has been designed to assist you to move your data away from Google to another provider if you so wish.

Google doesn’t want you to move your data but Google thinks its important that you can if you would like, hence Google Takeout. The Takeout service enables you to be able to extract your data from Google’s web services into open, easily-transferable file formats. Watch a video after the jump for a run through of the new service.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 Running Ubuntu On Android, Becomes ‘Tabuntu’ (video)

A great demonstration of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 running Ubuntu on Android has been putt together to show whats possible on Android. Ubuntu has been loaded on to the Tab without replacing the Android OS and runs in the background, “chrooted” or like a virtual machine.

Watch a video of the new ‘Tabuntu’ device in action after the jump.
