After updating Fedora on my Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition, the suspend/resume stopped functioning. After resuming from being suspended, the laptop would immediately reboot. There had also been a long running issue where the touchscreen would not work after resuming from being suspended.

There are a lot of webapps and 10 foot UI TV-friendly apps out there to get more “over the top” content to HTPC owners. It is a bit of a mess to try to find all of these ways of getting content. Using Windows Media Center, Google Chrome, and my own Relaunch, I can use all of these 10 foot apps to get more content through my HTPC. You don’t necessarily have to use that combination, as any HTPC can run these if you have a way of launching a browser. Head past the break to see the list!
