I contributed some $ to the iPodLinux project to encourage them to port iPodLinux to the Generation 4 version. It already runs on G1, G2 and G3 devices. If you have a Mini or a G4, consider donating, too. Click on the donate link on this page. Don’t let the non-english verbage on the PayPal.com donation page scare you. “Zahlung für:” is asking what the payment is for(donation), “Betrag:” is asking how many Euros you want to donate. One dollar is currently .77 Euros, according to PayPal.
The genre issue is a real pain. Adam touched on it in one of his podcasts, suggesting that everyone change the genre of their podcasts to “podcast”. Until that happens, I’ve created a smart playlist in iTunes that matches on genres of “podcast”, “spoken word”, “speech”, “books and spoken”, “audiobooks”, and blank.

I really want to preorder the Nintendo DS to guarantee that I’ll have it on day 1. The problem is that I’m not 100% sure that I’ll have fun with the launch titles.
IGN has a list of titles that will be available at or soon after launch. Given that none of my coworkers plan to purchase the DS right away, games like Metroid: Hunters(multi-player only) don’t automatically make the decision for me. BUT, what will the Wifi game lobby look like? My decision to buy hinges on that question.
Snippets from the article:
Kryeziu recommends a 2-GHz processor, but said the software runs quite happily on a 1-GHz laptop. He said it is capable of simultaneously running Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Internet Explorer and Safari, among other programs.
“It’s like running OS X on my G3 laptop,” Kryeziu explained. “There’s some pauses, but it’s not too bad.”
“On a fast system, it’s just as fast as running on a Mac,” he said.
Kryeziu said he has already started work on a stand-alone version of CherryOS that can be installed and run without Windows. He said Maui X-Stream has hired a couple of programmers to help.
“It will take a lot of development,” he said. “We’re looking at January or February next year.”
People are going crazy over this one. The dev is apparently responding to questions about CherryOS here.
