| Hillcrest Labs' Freespace(R) Division today announced the 
| availability of two new products designed to help developers easily 
| create applications and products that incorporate Freespace in-air 
| pointing and motion control technology. Hillcrest's new products 
| let software and hardware developers quickly create highly accurate 
| motion control applications and devices without requiring any prior 
| motion experience. Freespace motion control can transform a wide 
| variety of devices including: TV remote controls and user

| medical diagnostic devices, wearable computers, virtual reality 
| systems, interactive toys, fitness devices and more.


World's biggest open-source company? Google

| The Linux kernel is comprised of 11.5 million lines of code, of 
| which Red Hat is responsible for roughly 12 percent (measured in 
| terms of lines of code changed). Even if we add in JBoss 
| Application Server (another 2 million lines of code or so) and 
| other Red Hat projects, we're still left with far less open-source 
| code from Red Hat than from others.
| Take Sun, for example. Sun is the primary developer behind Java 
| (more than 6.5 million lines of code), Solaris (over 2 million 
| lines of code), OpenOffice (approximately 10 million lines of 
| code), and other open-source projects.
| Or IBM, with 12.5 million lines of code contributed to Eclipse 
| alone, not to mention Linux (6.3 percent of total contributions), 
| Geronimo, and a wide variety of other open-source projects.



Google File System II stalked by open-source elephant

| As Google rolls out GFS2 - a major update to the custom-built file
| system underpinning its online infrastructure - the company's former
| infrastructure don sees no reason why the open source world can't
| follow suit.
