Hands on with the GP2X Wiz

| There's also a collection of Flash games which are entirely in Korean so we 
| can't make head nor tail of them. They are, however, outrageously cute and 
| have the most toe-tappingly catchy soundtracks you will ever, ever hear. 
| Fact.   


Intelligent NIC downloads while host PC sleeps

,----[ Quote ]
| Developers at the University of San Diego say they will demonstrate massive 
| power savings for desktop PCs from embedding an ARM- and Linux-based Gumstix 
| CPU into a network interface. The "Somniloquy" can handle file-sharing and 
| long downloads independently, and only wakes a host PC when necessary.   


"The government is not trying to destroy Microsoft, it’s simply seeking to
compel Microsoft to obey the law. It’s quite revealing that Mr. Gates equates

Linux still top embedded OS

,----[ Quote ]
| In a new whitepaper on Linux in the embedded market, VDC researchers cite the
| following reasons for Linux's popularity:
|     * Licensing cost advantages
|     * Flexibility of source code access
|     * General familiarity
|     * Maturing ecosystem of applications and tools
|     * Growing developer experience with Linux as an embedded OS


Embedded Linux research report ships

,----[ Quote ]
| EDC noted that some 40 percent of the survey's 500 respondents were targeting
| embedded Linux.

| Also in the earlier reports, Andrews observed that the need for RTOS source
| code was "one of the reasons that proprietary RTOSes created in-house for a
| specific system have long been popular, and now it's a primary motivating
| factor in the adoption of Embedded Linux."
| The now completed survey results are said to include "expert analysis" from
| Ann Thryft, a 20-year industry veteran. The report includes chapters on
| platforms, processors, tools, languages, security, target devices, mobile
| development, and of course, Linux.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
