I found this and thought I really must post it even though it is a bit off topic. It is amazing to see a multi-tasking handheld OS.
Welcome to the iPad. Ok, I just made that up, but it does sound cool doesn’t it?
Lots of Apple sites (such as AppleInsider) have picked up on this today, but who really knows how accurate it is?
Personally I think it would be great if they would breathe new life into the Newton. A PDA running OSX would be brilliant but only on one condition.
It must be open to third party applications!.
Without that it will be useless. If they can make that work it will be amazing and could really open up mobile music making to a whole new level.
I guess we’ll need to wait and see. Maybe something will come up at MacWorld?
Here’s a good looking module for the TX. It allows PDA’s multi-function Multi Connector port to connect a 2.5mm stereo headset as seen on the Treo line and many other smart and feature phones that conform to the same pin spec as Palm uses for their Treos.
In addition to stereo audio output, it supports audio input on several Palm devices that do not have onboard microphones; namely the Tungsten T5 and Palm TX.
Now if only there was a multi-track for the Palm platform….
It is mobile music isn’t it? Why not. The CyFi is really just a light speaker you can use anywhere, but is designed for bike use. I think I’d use it on my bike.
This from PalmInfocenter suggests that the new Palm Centro will be announced tomorrow. Will it bring anything new for mobile music? I doubt it very much.
Here’s an update from Brian Whitman’s site on his work on audio on the iPhone.
This is one of a series from Gearwire on the Zoom H4.
My emulator days are not over as yet, but I’d really appreciate any suggestions for useful Amiga or DOS music apps that I coould try in emulation?
All help gratefully received.
