Post-thx giving extra

I’m hanging out with relatives, enjoying the holiday, but I can’t forget you guys. I’ve finally got a chance to announce some more prizes for the Design Challenge.

In addition to fbz’s hackaday ipod nano, MAKE put up one of their MAKE controllers and one of their Daisy MP3 player kits. The controller looks pretty sweet, servo interfaces, USB, etc, good stuff. I’ve got one of the daisy’s to play with, so I’ll be putting up more on that later. They also put together a nice open source gift guide. Plenty of it is from make, but there are a few good things on the list.

[John] sent in his Atari lynx C64 dtv mod. No details, but it looks like a decent portable mod.

[kedge] notes that the Wii apparently has opera pre-installed.

[Adam] pointed at that someone already has XP running on a friggin PS3. [via emulation under linux] I had issues reviewing the video, but it may have been my machine.

I’m going back to my poker game. Enjoy the holidays!

  1. For the ps3 windows…

    Vivia la Fedora!

    Although I am worried about the speed that it loaded at, even fedora was unbelievably slow (considering the amount of processsing power available…) I do not think that I have seen a slower winxp loading prompt in my entire life… At least it is a start!

  2. Please do share your daisy experiences!

    Also the board dimensions, as I’m having trouble finding them, if you could.
    (I’m having trouble envisioning an enclosure for it.)

    I wonder if there will be any way to add SDHC capability as well? Big cards are a-coming…
