TomTom to buy map supplier Tele Atlas

| buy its main map supplier, Tele Atlas, for 1.8 billion euros ($2.5
| billion) to improve the digital maps used by millions of drivers.


Hacking the TomTom ONE through Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| In an unexpected twist of events, the gpl-violations.org project took
| exception to TomTom building an embedded Linux system without going along
| with the GNU General Public License (GPL) constraints that the Linux kernel
| used, and custom modifications, be freely available as open source. They were
| successful in this and TomTom agreed to release the full source code
| including all additions and changes made in-house. Additionally, TomTom
| showed their "appreciation" for Free Software by making a donation, described
| as "significant", to the infamous Chaos Computer Club - read into this what
| you may.        
| [...]
| OpenTom can be downloaded as pre-compiled images, or in source-code format
| for customising and self-compiling. No matter which route you choose, copy
| the two resulting binaries ttsystem and root.cpio to an SD card and reboot
| following the instructions on site. The OpenTom image is executed instead.  

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
