It couldn't help the crew of the Planet Express ship but, I wonder if they rubbed cheetah blood on it?
That the music industry was evil.
I use to do some consulting work with Retail Navigator (http://www.retailnavigator.com/) back in '00. They had a handheld sytsem running Linux. I don't know if they still do.
I don't know who makes it but BCF uses Linux on their POS systems. ARTS (http://www.nrf-arts.org/) maybe of some help.
This is a fine example of why one should support the EFF. https://w2.eff.org/donate/index.php
I'm waiting to see what an Andriod or Meego pad has to offer. I have a few hundred dollars burning a hole in my pocket... Could have been Sony's but oh well.
If could have fully utilized the PS3 for my needs, I'd have purchased it and games. Since it cannot, I didn't. I can think of several games that I'd like to play (and afford to buy). But why should I give Sony my hard earned money for a device that doesn't "do everything"?
I'm not interested in piracy.
Our opinions on multiplayer online differ. I've no interest in the Xbox.
The Xbox (XBMC) is a good example of what is possible if console makers would be more open and allow homebrews. XBMC is touted as an excellent media center. It lives on, on multiple platforms even after the death of the original Xbox.
Keep thinking. If you knew anything about my project (or video processing in general), you'd know I'd need the power of the RSX. As I stated, since I could not use the PS3 for all of what I needed it to do, I never purchased it. That is that coward.
I think, at this point it is supposition that Sony can detect the use of a backup. If they can, how does that make you feel if you legitimately own a game and back it up? More importantly, what else do they know about you and what are they doing with that information? I'm not talking about piracy, I'm talking about your rights as a consumer and your rights online.
It has been years since I owned a console (Turbografx 16), after reading about the power of the Cell, I wanted to get a PS3. Not just for games but for Linux! However it turned out one couldn't full harness the power of the PS3 with Linux. So, I didn't get one. Thru the years, I'd check and see if any breakthrus were made or if Sony changed their stance. Well, with the release of the Slim models, the stance changed all right.
Since I own a N900 (Great hardware, great OS, great community! Nokia however is frustrating.) and seeing the release of PSFreedom was interesting to say the least. However at the moment all one can do is backup one's games. While it will be interesting to watch what happens in the homebrew scene, where does that leave those like myself that would want to do something legitimate with the PS3?
In my case, for years I've wanted to port KnoppMyth (now LinHES) to the PS3. Now, it seems that things maybe falling in place that would allow that. However thanks to corporate decisions and the law (DMCA), I probably won't be able to do so. Talk about crippling innovation.
Been thinking about it for a while... As I'm not a web developer, I could certainly use some help. You can find my contact on my site (mysettopbox.tv).
Where is the option for how many I've uploaded?!
You're welcome. I'd love to get KnoppMyth/LinHES working on as much hardware as we (development team) can. However with the source (and an unrestricted license), this isn't possible for many devices.
