To the Moon! (almost)

Save the BetaMax!!!

Endangered Gizmos via the EFF (warning, they do want your money to continue fighting "to defend our rights to think, speak, and share our ideas, thoughts, and needs using new technologies, such as the Internet and the World Wide Web.")
Lawsuits have driven some excellent consumer products into extinction, like the ReplayTV 4000, DVD X Copy and the lamented wild and crazy Napster 1.0 including what drove them into extinction. They also list endangered gizmos like the HD TV PCI Card, Morpheus and Generic FireWire, open Wifi hot spots and CD burners.
Among the "saved" gizmos is the Skylink garage door opener which had been attacked under the DMCA.

Music Industry looses in court

Federal judge rules Morpheus, Grokster not liable for Internet piracy. Well that is until the big pocketed music industry finds a favorable judge and wins the appeal.

Distinctive Science Fiction Illustrator and Cover Artist Richard Powers

Richard Powers - His sleek surreal and otherworldly abstractions changed science fiction illustration and, in the process, the stature of science fiction itself. Here is the Richard Powers Catalog from Vandewater Books. From the e-zine Strange Words Archive, comes The Powers Years part of Collecting The Ballantine Originals, and check out the thumbnails amid and after the Richard Powers essay at Hedonia--who are the very wave of the future in so many ways at once! David G. Hartwell remembers Powers the man. Here is another from his son in download form from Paper Snarl, where Powers is well regarded. And check out the links at the Richard Powers Cyber Art Gallery - everything from a Goth art gallery to Terence McKenna's Dream Museum. But don't click on Miss Stephanie Locke if you're at work! Oh, and the Strange Worlds archive is worth a gander, too...

Music City (makers of Morpheus) to relaunch Web site as a revenue-generating venue for new artists.

Music City (makers of Morpheus) to relaunch Web site as a revenue-generating venue for new artists. Though this site will allow the user only so many test runs before purchase, the company's file-sharing technology still allows users to transfer other songs and files between each other free of charge.This will be part of the Morpheus upgrade, which is crappy so far.I need a new P2P.

Morpheus is broken.

Morpheus is broken. The Netherlands-based provider of the technology used by Kazaa and Grokster upgrades their system, but leaves out Streamcast Networks' (formerly Music City) Morpheus network, and suddenly, everyone is locked out. Kinda punches a giant hole in their EFF-backed battle with the RIAA, which hinges on the assertion that their network is 'decentralized' and impossible to stop.

StreamCast Networks (Morpheus, MusicCity) chooses REBOL Technologies.

StreamCast Networks (Morpheus, MusicCity) chooses REBOL Technologies. This could be the big break for REBOL (sounds like rebel), one of the thousands of little languages out there that wants to be a contender.
Granted, it's not open-sourced, and is ridiculed and mocked by Slashdot. On the other hand it's got some interesting features: Scheme like capabilities, urls and email as datatypes, cheapness and smallness (350k) and availability on 11 different operating systems
The REBOL community is tiny but they like to write things like blog/wiki things, network protocol handlers, control functions, and their own mini-languages

Any hotline users out there?

Any hotline users out there? I haven't seen any comment on this. Personally, I use Morpheus now, but I'm still sorry to see Hotline go.
