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 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...
Does this mean...
...that El Reg could follow suit soon? Pretty please?
"Make holding a driving licence mandatory [...] to prove your age"
Why not substitute the words "driving license" for "ID card"?
Nokia N810, anyone?
It seems like a kiddified imitation of one anyway...
Is anyone else hating how they've rebranded the BBC Radio Player to make it all iPlayer-y?
It looks awful.
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!
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.
