New Nokia N900 based on Linux!

Here’s some great news that the new Nokia N900 is based on Linux, similar to the new Palm Pre.

The new Nokia N900 comes with ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 1GB of application memory, 32GB of storage (expandable to 48GB with a MicroSD card), and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

That’s very similar to the Palm Pre, same processor but 4X more memory and 4X more storage.  Plus, I have to say having a Mozilla browser is a definite plus.  If it’s available anytime soon in the U.S., I will definitely be one of the first get this cool new phone.

FINALLY, Nokia gets on

MIT DIY Robot Gardners!

Here’s some interesting news from researchers at MIT developing robot “Garden” automation.  I have to speculate on how “effective” this would be but I imagine it will be highly effective than not.

From the looks, it seems they’ve put a webcam, servo motor, and other goodies for plants in the project.  This might be a sign that robot farming may not be too far from reality.

Heck, I’d like to purchase one of these robotic garden kits at Wal-Mart and grow my own “automated” farm with abili

Cross MP3

Faithful? Get the Cross MP3.

Make no mistake, this isn’t the first time a religious symbol has been integrated into a digital audio player, but unlike the iBelieve, this thing is actually, you know, real. Destined to be sold in bulk quantities to youth groups everywhere, the Cross MP3 Player is hardly designed by coincidence, and comes with 4GB of internal memory, a two-color LCD, built-in speaker, FM tuner, integrated mic, seven equalizer
