Litl Plans to Launch Web-Connected TV Box

,----[ Quote ]
| The Litl box will run an open Linux-based 
| OS, the same used in the Webbook, making 
| it easier to encourage users to create web 
| apps due to the open OS. litl will also be 
| releasing an Adobe Flash 10.1-based 
| Software Development Kit (SDK) at this 
| weekend's Flash and the City developers 
| conference.


Linux on the iPhone: Status update

,----[ Quote ]
| I know the binaries for the iPhone 3G are 
| taking a while. Everything is basically 
| done and all the code I have is in the 
| source repositories so people are free to 
| build it for themselves. However, I wanted 
| to improve the packaging slightly to ease 
| installation (no longer requiring people 
| to modify ext2 partitions). The release of 
| the binaries (and a how-to) will be 
| sometime within the next week.


Workshops tackle Qt, Linux, and i.MX development

,----[ Quote ]
| Future Electronics and Nokia will host six 
| full-day, hands-on workshops across the 
| North America on using Linux and Nokia's 
| Qt development framework to develop user 
| interfaces (UIs) for Freescale's ARM-based 
| i.MX system-on-chips (SoCs). Starting in 
| Boston on May 18, the workshops will use 
| the Freescale i.MX23 SoC as its sample 
| platform.



Hands On With the Litl [GNU/Linux] Webbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Powering the litl is a 1.8-GHz Atom Z540
| processor, with 1GB of 533-Mhz DDR2 RAM. The
| bright, two-toned chassis is sturdy, belying
| its dainty appearance. Its 12.1-inch screen is
| driven by Intel integrated graphics, and
| offers a 1280 x 800 resolution. It also weighs
| just over 3 pounds, making it very portable.


Will the litl make it big?

,----[ Quote ]
| What it is: With recent news about the
| Internet-connected CrunchPad (now called
| JooJoo), I thought it was interesting that the
| litl has already been shipping. Basically the
| same concept (except this is a notebook rather
| than a tablet with a touchscreen), the litl is
| meant to be an Internet computer (or
| "Webbook"), accessing its applications across
| the Internet. There's no hard drive for
| installing applications (there is some small
| memory for content caching), no optical drive
| and it runs on a Linux operating system instead
| of Windows or Macintosh.


US start-up punts family friendly netbook appliance

,----[ Quote ]
| Litl hasn't said what OS the Webbook uses,
| but it certainly has a Moblin look about it,
| with its presentation of website bookmarks,
| contacts, media files, social networking
| accounts and so on as on-screen widgets. It
| has true widgets too.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
