Netflix streaming should be coming to Motorola Xoom sooncoolfrood

Thu, 28 Apr 2011 15:43:44 +0000

I’m putting two and two together here. Google is pushing a new update to the Xoom: This update brings support for Google’s Widevine DRM. Also, according to this: Widevine is being used by Netflix to provide support for embedded devices. It seems logical that Netflix should be headed to Motorola Xoom soon. I […](image)

Motorola Xoom Review: Initial impressionscoolfrood

Thu, 07 Apr 2011 15:35:45 +0000

I got a Motorola Xoom (Wi-Fi) from Amazon on the third day of its release in the US. The 4G version for Verizon became available a month earlier, but it is too expensive, in my opinion, and I didn’t see myself really needing to take the tablet everywhere I go, much less pay Verizon for […](image)

Setting up gdb to work with qemu-kvm via libvirtcoolfrood

Thu, 02 Dec 2010 14:16:21 +0000

(I’m putting this up because I couldn’t find anything that described how to set this up and I had to connect different fragments of information, and file an invalid bug report before I figured it out.) If you want to be able to debug a Linux kernel that’s running as a KVM guest, you need […](image)

Installing Ubuntu’s new font on Lucid (Ubuntu 10.04) and older versionscoolfrood

Wed, 06 Oct 2010 12:55:04 +0000

If you’re like me, the most interesting thing for you coming up in Ubuntu Maverick (10.10) is just the font. If you don’t feel like upgrading to the newest version just yet, you can still download and install the new Ubuntu font. The hard part was to actually locate the font. Here’s a link. If […](image)

Thoughts on Applecoolfrood

The Internet has been abuzz with Steve Jobs’ statement about his views on Adobe Flash. Here are some of my thoughts. H.264 As others have pointed out, the fact that H.264 is widely used does not make it open. It is patent-encumbered and requires licensed decoders. Steve makes the same point about Flash: While Adobe’s […](image)

Apple just bought a voice search company Apple has acquired Siri, a mobile “assistant” app maker, a Siri representative has confirmed. This puts Apple in even closer competition with Google, as we believe that mobile assistant apps are one of the many ways that search will look on mobile platforms. I can see the headline: Cupertino, start […](image)

Disabling command line suggestions in Ubuntucoolfrood

Mon, 26 Apr 2010 14:31:09 +0000

Ubuntu and other distributions give suggestions on the command line if you misspell commands or use commands that are not installed yet. This can be quite helpful in some cases, but if you are like me, you don’t want eight lines of command suggestions just because you mistyped grep as gre. You can disable command […](image)

Kudos to Ikeacoolfrood

Mon, 18 Jun 2007 00:21:14 +0000

I visited Ikea today.  It has been a while since I was there last and I was surprised to see that Ikea is taking some very positive steps to  conserve the environment.  Firstly, they have replaced almost all incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent lamps.  All the lamps that they sell now only have CFLs and […](image)

I picked up Free Culture: The Nature and Future of Creativity by Lawrence Lessig recently. For those who don’t know, Lawrence Lessig is a Professor of Law at Stanford Law School. He is also one of the biggest voices in favour of electronic freedom and the founder of Creative Commons. I have been following his […](image)

Privacy? Or Piracy?coolfrood

Wed, 13 Jun 2007 00:08:27 +0000

There has been much discussion lately about the personal customer information contained in the DRM-free AAC files being sold through the iTunes store. The privacy advocates are complaining that these files reveal too much information and are a potential risk should these files get stolen. I am no Apple apologist, but I have say that […](image)
