Envizions Announces 3-D Online Community for Linux Game Console

,----[ Quote ]
| I have a confession: When I read press releases about Envizions' EVO Smart 
| Console I am unsure if the company is run by self-assured, confident 
| visionaries or if -- well, the situation is actually quite the opposite. I 
| like (love?) the idea of an open source, Linux-powered gaming console. I like 
| the potential it holds, the almost limitless features it could deliver, the 
| creativity it could inspire.     


Hard Plastic Books That Talk

,----[ Quote ]
| Although in many ways the less than $10 “Talking Books” lack features of the 
| OLPC laptops, they also offer some advantages over their big brothers. The 
| first is obviously in cost. Second, the audio-only interaction enables 
| education where illiteracy often is a stumbling block. Paired with freely 
| available audio recordings and the ability to record and share additional 
| content, the Talking Books will be able to reach people that even the OLPC 
| Project left behind.       



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)
