Chrome Webstire is on a roll.So many new apps,extensions being launched every then and now,and so many useless.Like some are just redirecting to a web page while some as discussed below just change a font and that too on a single website.#fail.This extension ‘Ubuki’
Why is it a fail ?
A person ‘A’,sitting on his windoze and never used ubuntu,when see’s this extension in the ‘store,might think that it’s difficult to change the default font in ubuntu.so chances of his using an open source OS reduces further more.Or he might think ubuntu users need an extension just to change a font !
Secondly,the extension just useless.Want to change font ? Go to Options » Advanced » Font settings and change the font.
A whole extension just to change the font on one website ? #whatanonsense

Though if you have never played the game,and have Windows,it’s high time that you start the game and let us know your thoughts on it.
If you are an Ubuntu + Android user then you got to try this app.
This project sends notifications to a desktop computer when certain events happen on an Android device, such as the phone ringing, an SMS being received, or the battery running low. The notifications can be sent over Wifi, Bluetooth, or (in the future) USB.
It runs as a service on android, consuming little resources while no events are happening, and the desktop application notifies the user about the event in some way (Growl on Mac, Gnome dbus notifications on Linux, Growl for Windows or System tray alert on Windows), including information such as the number that’s calling.
Once intsalled on your Ubuntu and your Android,you can be updated about recent calls,text messages etc,without looking in your phone.
How To Get It ?
Download/install the Android notifier application first.
Add ppa:michael-astrapi/ppa to your software sources or open a terminal and run the following command: – sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-astrapi/ppa
