Adobe brings AIR to Linux

saxsux

iPlayer!

Tut, tut Reg. Can't believe you missed this one: Auntie Beeb have brought out a new version of the AIR-based iPlayer download manager now that AIR has been released for Linux.

Ubuntu man Shuttleworth dissects Hardy Heron's arrival

saxsux
Linux

@Slaine

Ubuntu version numbers aren't as you'd expect - rather than being "real" versions, they're based on the release date. Hardy is 8.04 because it's released in forth month of the 2008, not because it's version 8 of Ubuntu.

And on the subject of Hardy - I've been using it since the last beta, and it's fab.

I'm quite peed off that ndiswrapper doesn't work properly any more, though - my laptop's built-in wifi, which has worked perfectly with ndiswrapper since 6.06, is now useless for anything other than an unsecured network.

Hopefully they'll fix it soon...

Hmmmm...

"Make holding a driving licence mandatory [...] to prove your age"

Why not substitute the words "driving license" for "ID card"?

Sony revamps Mylo mobile internet device

Nokia N810, anyone?

It seems like a kiddified imitation of one anyway...

Urrgghhh....

Is anyone else hating how they've rebranded the BBC Radio Player to make it all iPlayer-y?

It looks awful.

Nokia slides latest Linux tablet onto market

Unhappy

Damn.

I just spent 200 quid on a N800. If only I'd waited, I could probably get one even cheaper now.

The N810 looks utterly fantastic, though. Well done, Nokia!

Google updates desktop for Linux

saxsux
Stop

Why, exactly?

I don't understand how anybody would bother with Google Desktop for Linux - don't Beagle and Tracker both other the same (if not better) functionality?

Google Desktop for Mac OS X makes equally as little sense, as OS X already ships with Spotlight.

Pointless, really.
