One level up from this would be a “deluxe” (527-square-foot room on the 1st to 7th floor), while a “premier” gets you a room of 527-square feet on floors 8, 9 or 10. At the top is the presidential suite, with 2,655 square feet on the 10th floor. Translation: do your homework before you get on the phone so you know what you’re booking. Check-In The building’s façade has a kind of minimalist/brutalist appeal — it does not look fancy until you spot valets in top hats opening the doors. The entrance is located at the top of a hill (the Intercontinental Hotel is across the street). Cabs stand by at all hours to whisk passengers away to the Alfama or Belém neighborhoods. Palm trees and flowers line the street-side entrance. The inside is unequivocally stunning. Exotic vines dangle from a skylight and barely brush the floor below, a real work of art and not something you see every day in a lobby.

And that, for the uninitiated, is a whole other can of worms." —Emily Engle, Assistant Editor How Muji Brought the Ulm School to the High Street Deputy Editor Mark Sinclair explains, along with photos , how "If one brand truly embodies the pure, democratic design principles of Germany's Ulm School of the 1950s and 60s, it's not Apple, or even Braun, but Muji." Since their birth in 1983, Muji has gradually expanded their product line into a complete ecosystem and, effectively, a lifestyle. —Rain Noe, senior editor Why Nothing Works Anymore So many ordinary objects and experiences have become technologized—made dependent on computers, sensors, and other apparatuses meant to improve them—that they have also ceased to work in their usual manner. It's common to think of such defects as matters of bad design. That's true, in part. But technology is also more precarious than it once was.

Nintendo has always been protective of its brands, and today they lobbed a blue shell at a fellow Japanese business trying to make a few yen. The gaming giant filed a lawsuit Friday against go kart business MariCar (or Marika), which rents street-legal karts to customers for a tour of Tokyo. SEE ALSO: John Cena is helping Nintendo advertise the Nintendo Switch In a press release Nintendo claimed that the business blatantly simulated the popular racing games both in the name and in the costumes MariCar provides. "We have declared the mark 'Marika,' which is an abbreviation of 'Mario Kart' widely known as the series of racing games that we manufacture and sell," the press release read. "In addition, when the defendant company rents public road carts to their customers, [they] lend a costume of prominent characters such as our 'Mario'..." Read more...

Subscribe to the print or digital version of Linux Format here Test 1: Installation How easy is the first step? These distros may be aimed at power users, but that doesn't mean you want to tear your hair out during the installation process, however much street cred you may stand to gain later on. And it's not a question of how long it takes to install that's a triviality but rather how complicated the process is. Slackware is one of our favourite distros, and its installation isn't complex at all, unless you consider an ncurses-based installer complicated. The installer is certainly different, but by no means difficult to navigate. You may want to keep a copy of the Slackware book with you, maybe on a notebook or tablet. When you run the setup, which takes you through several installation steps including package selection, pay special attention to the prompting mode and the software series.
