The Grumpy Editor's Tomato review

,----[ Quote ]
| Your editor has just completed an important 
| transition: moving his Internet connectivity 
| from one evil branch of the local telecom 
| duopoly to the other, equally evil branch. 
| This change required the acquisition of a 
| new router; that, in turn, provided the 
| opportunity to play with Linux-based router 
| software, and Tomato in particular. Read on 
| for your editor's impressions of this 
| impressive bit of (mostly) free software. 


Chumby and the Internet of Things 

,----[ Quote ]
| Having everything connected is a bliss. I 
| bought a Chumby last week. It is an alarm 
| clock. With a touchscreen and wi-fi 
| connectivity. Built on open source (you can 
| easily get root access in the Linux box), 
| with a thriving community of developers 
| building widgets for it. Therefore, it 
| doubles as an Internet radio, an online 
| picture frame, a weather station, it plays 
| your Google Voice messages and a lot more.

| Hacker Holden Karau is porting the Devicescape Connect WiFi sign-on client to
| the Linux-based, open-source OpenMoko Neo Freerunner phone. The port, which
