Customers dumping Samsung phones in wake of Apple suit

Good for the home embedders.

Yank the SIM card and you have yourself a nice dedicated interface for your home control project.

Son of Transputer powers new Amiga box

SaneCentral
Thumb Up

I think I will

Still have my A2000 w/040 and my A4000T w/PPC and Video Toaster 4000. Oh, and an A1200 toy/game machine someone gave me (I've never been into games). One of the sweetest machines to develop for/on. I miss EVERY application having an ARexx interface since I've had to develop software/hardware on nasty x86 platforms for a living. Now that I'm retired I might just pick one of these up and finally ENJOY developing again.

Research In Motion drives away with QNX

Thumb Up

First exposed in 1991

A co-worker loaned me his manuals. Being an Amiga programmer, I was quite surprised to see a nice micro-kernel based OS on the x86 platform. After a little research I found out that the founder of QNX was a fellow Amiga programmer who had written a few games. Gee, I wonder where he got the idea for a real-time micro-kernel based OS?

Am I just lucky, or whay?

After doing the reboot shuffle getting Vista Ultimate all patched and

We'll see what happens when I install some apps (fingers, arms toes, eyes, and legs crossed.

Amiga Forever updated for Windows 7

Thumb Up

All of mine are still alive

The best one being a PPC A4000T with a Video Toaster 4000, 24 bit video card, DSP audio card, 10 base ether (ehh). Mt trusty ol A2000 w/040 networked in. Could emulate a Mac faster than the Mac could be a Mac. PC emulation a bit slow and not much fun. And yes, ARexx integrated into the OS and EVERY app. AmiNet offering skads of freeware, most of which would cost $30 for PC equiv. Why charge for software when it was such a pleasure to program.

iPod saves lightning-strike teen

Alert

300kV??

How did they come up with the value 300kV?

Lightning is measured in kA.

Did they happen to be standing next to a field mill?
