[News] Linux Gets Another iTunes Equivalent, Firefox Gets Photo Editing

Hash: SHA1

Floola, the portable iTunes replacement

,----[ Quote ]
| There are a lot of music jukeboxes out there that aren't iTunes but still 
| work with iPods. Freeware Floola for Windows, Mac, and Linux is one of the 
| few, if only, portable music players that not only works with your iPod, it 
| will work from your iPod, too. The program's fully compatible with your 
| desktop iTunes installation, but can be run from the iPod itself.    


Mozilla's Ubiquity add-on for Firefox to get photo editing

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubiquity is an experimental Firefox extension developed by Mozilla Labs that 
| extends the browser user interface with a context-sensitive command system. 
| The latest version of the extension already includes a lot of really useful 
| capabilities, but we could see some even more impressive features arrive 
| soon.    
| In a blog entry today, Mozilla's Aza Raskin revealed plans for building a 
| lightweight browser-based photo editor that will be accessible through 
| Ubiquity. Jacob Seidelin, the developer behind the Pixastic JavaScript image 
| processing library, will be leading the effort. He plans to begin work on the 
| project next month.    



iTunes Wishes it Could be Like Songbird

,----[ Quote ]
| Better than iTunes? Yes. Replacement for iTunes? No, because of the
| proprietary nature of iTunes and iPods, Songbird can never fully provide the
| same functions you will get with iTunes while using with Apple products,
| which is why Songbird is yet to have support for iPhone/iPod touch. But for
| Linux users who can’t use iTunes, Songbird is the best option not only as an
| iTunes replacement but arguably the best Linux media player out there.


Review : Songbird - Sleek , Simple and Feature rich cross-platform Music Player

,----[ Quote ]
| I had reviewed Songbird close to two years back , and at that time Songbird
| was impressive but was bug ridden, lacked important features and certain
| degree of polishing which was expected from an application intended to be
| used on Desktops. Songbird 1.0 is an entirely different story altogether,
| Songbird 1.0 is mature, has slick interface and most importantly is stable
| enough to be used by newbiess.


Songbird 1.0 Review - An Awesome Release!

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, Songbird definitely became a major player with this release. With
| plenty of features and a wonderful approach, I can say I warmly recommend
| Songbird as the primary audio player to anyone, and at least a try if you
| haven't used it yet. It's powerful and it practically acts like a music
| centre for an audiophile.


Goodbye Rhythmbox, Welcome Songbird!

,----[ Quote ]
| Although I don't like to admit it, I have always liked the
| iTunes media player. I know it hogs so much RAM, and that
| it loves to crash half way through your most loved song -
| but it is so sexy. I wasn't too keen on the idea of
| installing and running it through Wine, as it would only
| use even more RAM then before. I settled for Ryhthmbox in
| the end, even though it didn't really compare at all to
| iTunes. I finally had enough of its uglyness this evening,
| and went on the search to find a better alternative. After
| a bit of Googling,I had found it!


Songbird 1.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Songbird is a good audio player, no doubt about it.
| I only tested it for about an hour, but it seemed stable to me.
| But I will never use it on my Ubuntu pc’s.
| I’m a Compiz Fusion guy and like my apps to integrate with the DE (Desktop
| Enviroment, aka Gnome).


Music and browsing take flight in Songbird

| Music and browsing mashup Songbird has kicked the remnants of its shell to
| the curb.


Songbird’s Open-Source Music Player Finally Takes Flight

,----[ Quote ]
| Way back in February of 2006, I wrote about an early version of Songbird, a
| music-playing app that aspired to be an open-source rival to iTunes. I was
| guardedly positive. It took way longer than I would have guessed, but the
| Songbird folks finally unveiled an official version 1.0 of the application
| today. This final release bears surprisingly little resemblance to that first
| version. And while I’m still digging into it, I’m impressed.


Open Source iTunes Competitor Songbird Officially Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Songbird is like an open source version of iTunes that handles just about
| everything that program does, while swapping out the iTunes store interface
| in favor of the world's music blogs.


10 of the Best Songbird Add-ons

,----[ Quote ]
| The first stable version of Songbird has been unleashed. Considered by many
| as the Firefox of media players due to its extensibility, this open source
| iTunes replacement has a bright future ahead.


A media player for the times: Songbird

,----[ Quote ]
| After about two years in the works, Pioneers of the Inevitable have released
| Songbird, a Mozilla-based music player, with which, POTI aims to do for music
| what Mozilla did with Firefox: provide an open source customizable
| multiplatform music player.


Songbird 1.0.0 Released [Featured Download]


Songbird gets ready to fly with 1.0 release candidate

,----[ Quote ]
| The Songbird developers have contributed extensively to bring cross-platform
| support to GStreamer, an open source multimedia framework that is used
| extensively on Linux. GStreamer is now used as the Songbird media backend
| across all platforms, improving the performance and reliability of audio
| playback. In addition to supporting MP3, FLAC, and OGG across all platforms,
| GStreamer also supports WMA on Windows and AAC on Windows and Mac OS X.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
