Google wriggles in open voice and browser debates

| This has given rise to a new group, the Open Android Alliance, 
| which says its goal is to âreplace all closed source, proprietary 
| applications in the base Android install with open source 
| applications that can be freely distributed. We don't have 
| anything against the existing closed applications. However, we 
| believe in open platforms and want all users to be able to modify 
| their systems as they see fit.â


Stanford open-source "Frankencamera" could revolutionize photography

,----[ Quote ]
| Stanford University (Stanford, CA) scientists say they are out 
| to reinvent digital photography with the introduction of an 
| open-source digital camera that will give programmers around 
| the world the chance to create software that will teach cameras 
| new tricks, meaning camera performance will no longer be 
| limited by the software that comes pre-installed by the 
| manufacturer.



Open source camera could pave the way for open source hardware

| Recently a Techrepublic reader sent me a link to this story from Science Daily
| about a professor (Mark Levoy) of computer science at Stanford who is developing
| an open source camera. The article tells the story of a fledgling program,
| Computational Photography, which researches photography to help improve cameras.
| Mr. Levoy developed the camera so that other computational photographers could
| help improve the software.


Frankencamera is open source, runs on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Photo scientists at Stanford University have conceived what is probably the
| world's first open-source camera. Their contraption, dubbed the
| Frankencamera, consists of a Nokia N95 mobile phone camera module, circuit
| board, a couple of lenses from Canon and Linux for all the open-source
| goodness.
