Remote application control with Bemused

The catalyst for much innovation is laziness. Ask any old person. Years of strenuous room crossing to change TV channels led to the invention of the infrared remote control. Years of strenuous lifting and pointing of these remotes led to the invention of the direction-less RF remote control. Finally, years of strenuous searching for all these remotes has led to the invention of remote control applications for Bluetooth-equipped cell phones. Short of cybernetic implants, this may be the easiest way to control applications without having to touch a keyboard or mouse.

Marcel's Linux App of the Month : streamtuner

A long time ago (when the Earth was young), I worked as a top-40 disc jockey for a local radio station. The years have passed but my passion for radio hasn't dwindled. A few months ago, I discovered's directory of music streams. Not long after that, I ran across SHOUTcast. Between these two Web sites, I had access to literally thousands of Internet radio streams, both professional and amateur, covering every imaginable musical taste. As you can well imagine, browsing through these sites can become a rather time-consuming process — not that I minded, but time is something I seem to have a lot less of these days. That's why I like Jean-Yves Lefort's streamtuner so much.

London's OpenTech conference looks ahead

Held in London last Saturday, OpenTech 2005 was an informal, low-cost conference about open technologies and content. Attendees ranged from BSD hackers to digital rights activists, from mapping enthusiasts to staff from the BBC. The program covered the work of organisations like the BBC and Yahoo! alongside community groups as diverse as mySociety, Remix Reading, and the Space Hijackers. The range and quantity of material covered was impossibly large, so this report is merely a glimpse into a few key issues raised in discussions. But the question on everyone's minds throughout the day was: Will the future be open, and if so, what will it look like?

The second in the new series of People Behind KDE brings us Thiago Macieira. Thiago is a Brazilian who spends his time reading the kde-bugs-dist mailing list.

It always amazes me the amount of misplaced passion and anger that people can generate for inanimate objects. From the Furd vs Cheby fans to the Windows vs Linux vs Mac wars.... Sadly, this is not just advocacy, but descends into senseless name calling and personal insults at the drop of a hat. You'd think that people would have better things to do with their lives, but apparently that isn't the case.

Welcome to this year's 30th issue of DistroWatch Weekly. It is "shoulder season" in the distribution land. Apart from several minor distribution releases, it was a slow week, with only the launch of the Utnubu initiative and a new beta release from Mandriva providing some excitement. Prompted by a satisfied user, we have taken a closer look at StartCom MultiMedia Edition, an interesting distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Apart from these topics, we have all the usual columns, complemented by a quick tip for using digital cameras, mobile phones and music players under Linux. Happy reading!
