    HP to Contribute webOS to Open Source

    ha, yeah, this is true. However, and i can't remember where i was reading it but, apparently, WebOS won't be entirely open ether, the development path will be very strict and directed closely by HP. The idea is to keep product recognition tight.

As well, i'd much rather play a "couch" multiplayer game with friends. If a games good enough, 5 years...

    Secure Apple Macs Fall Prey To Linux DDoS Trojan

    Mozilla Foundation Develops its Own Operating System

    MeeGo is not dead at all man, open source source software does not always work in a linear way like closed source software, deadlines and things do not always apply. Saying MeeGo is dead is like saying ReactOS is dead because there are months of no "updates" or that HaikuOS is dead because its...

    Acer Intros S243HLbmii W-LED Illuminated Display

    I'm a fan of LEDs. They have a lot of potential, but i just don't think they are quite ready for the mass market yet, and for two reasons only. They have a still have a lot of room to grow as far as energy converted to light(induction lights are near 100% effecient.. but have other drawbacks)...
