Television

+ - Zap2It Replacement Scheduling Service Goes Online

Submitted by
Krondor
Krondor writes "Schedules Direct, the TV listing service created to replace the soon to be discontinued Zap2It Labs free listings, is now accepting registrations. This comes in advance of the pending Zap2It TV Listing shutdown and is obviously excellent news for many open source projects, such as MythTV. The service, though no longer free, does intend to reduce pricing as demand increases and exists as a non-profit specifically for the purpose of providing TV listing data to "Free and Open Source Applications". Slashdot has previously covered the Zap2It Labs TV Listing Discontinuation as well as the pricing expectations for Schedules Direct."
Novell

+ - Hubert Mantel Returns to Novell

Submitted by
Krondor
Krondor writes "Hubert Mantel, SuSe Co-Founder, has confirmed in an interview with Data Manager Online that he has returned to employment with Novell. When asked why he left Novell to begin with, Hubert responded that he was 'burned out' and 'following unpleasant experiences with our investors needed some time off'. Slashdot had reported previously Hubert's departure from Novell approximately one year ago shortly following Novell's acquisition of SuSe and subsequent layoffs. Hubert also provides his opinions on the Novell-Microsoft Agreement, which he characterizes as 'a good thing'."

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.
