[News] More Linux Devices Debut

Hash: SHA1

Myka announces its latest Linux-based 'net top box'

,----[ Quote ]
| Early in the summer, IPTV startup Myka 
| delivered an impressive Linux-based device 
| which was not quite a set-top box and not 
| quite a home theater PC (HTPC). Though the 
| device's identity was sort of nebulous, the 
| company's goal was crystal clear: to easily 
| make the tons of different types of 
| Internet video content viewable on the TV.

Myka's Linux-based BitTorrent box great home theater PC for lazy people

,----[ Quote ]
| With as many set-top boxes as there suddenly appear to be in the home video
| market, as long as any one of them has a strong central feature, it could be
| the one that becomes a household name. Look at TiVo, Slingbox, and AppleTV:
| Each of these built a TV-based ecosystem around a single unique feature:
| TiVo's was the DVR, Slingbox was the place-shifting concept, and AppleTV was
| iTunes.
| Now, IPTV startup Myka has designed its own media center STB, focusing on
| BitTorrent as its winning central feature. And while it doesn't carry all the
| functions one would expect in a home theater PC (HTPC), it offers enough
| power and functionality to be considered a little more than your
| run-of-the-mill set top box. Like the title says, if you're a little bit
| lazy...you could even consider Myka a pre-built HTPC. Betanews got an
| exclusive look at this new device.


Myka open-source media player takes on Apple TV

,----[ Quote ]
| Attempting to take on the Apple TV comes Myka, an open-source digital media
| receiver that trades movie studio approval for a standalone BitTorrent client
| and more A/V codec support than you could shake a metaphorical stick at.
| Packing hard-drives up to 500GB in capacity, the compact box also supports
| remote access from any internet-enabled PC or cellphone.


Linux-driven BitTorrent appliance ships

,----[ Quote ]
| Myka is shipping an embedded Linux device that downloads, stores, and plays
| BitTorrent media files on an attached TV. Available in 80GB, 160GB, and 500GB
| models, plus a Developer's Edition with a 1TB disk, the Myka appliances
| offload BitTorrent peer-to-peer duties from a PC.


Myka sneaks BitTorrent into the living room

,----[ Quote ]
| OK, perhaps not so sneaky, there's a nice big BitTorrent logo right up front,
| but Myka seems to be quite the end-to-end solution for getting those torrents
| up on the big screen. The box hooks up to the internet via LAN or WiFi,
| includes a 80GB, 160GB or a 500GB drive for storage and runs a torrent client
| on Linux.

EU Invests $22 Million in Next-Generation BitTorrent Client

,----[ Quote ]
| A few weeks ago we reported that the EU Greens launched a pro-filesharing
| campaign named âI Wouldnât Stealâ. In a continued effort to support the
| development of P2P technology, the European Union has now invested $22
| million in the development of an open-source BitTorrent client.
