Logitech Confirms Companion Box to be Called âRevueâ

,----[ Quote ]
| Logitech took to their blog today to 
| confirm the "Revue" as their companion box 
| for Google TV.  Rather than forking out 
| hundreds or thousands for a new 
| television, Logitech's add-on peripheral 
| is designed to complement any current HD 
| set.  So how did they come up with the 
| name?


The Flavor of Android's Open Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| It started when I heard that National 
| Public Radio (NPR) had an Android app last 
| week. Actually, I'm sure they had the app 
| earlier than that, but it was the news 
| that this application was being open 
| sourced by NPR that brought it to my 
| attention.
| While I have been grooving on my new 
| phone, I haven't been downloading things 
| willy-nilly yet, because my current lack 
| of travel plans means that I'm in the home 
| office a lot and therefore don't need a 
| fully stocked mobile platform yet.

| over Verizon Wireless's strong current 
| position with Android phones, adding that 
| things will change dramatically over the 
| next six months.



NPR to open source its Android app

,----[ Quote ]
| National Public Radio (NPR), a non-profit
| membership organisation, has announced
| that it plans to open source its NPR
| Android application. Created in 1970, NPR
| is a privately and publicly funded US
| media organisation that produces and
| distributes news, talk and entertainment
| programming. The NPR app for Android
| devices was created by Google developer
| Michael Frederick in his spare time. With
| the application, users can read, listen or
| create playlists of NPR stories, share
| them with friends and live stream audio
| from hundreds of NPR radio stations.
