Manage iPod From A Linux Desktop With Amarok

This article shows how you can use an iPod on a Linux desktop with Amarok. It covers how you can upload MP3 files from your desktop to your iPod, download MP3 files from your iPod to your desktop, and how you can delete files on the iPod. Normally, Apple’s iTunes software is needed to manage an iPod, but iTunes is not available for Linux. Fortunately, there are Linux alternatives such as Amarok that can handle the task. I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you! Preliminary Note I have tested this with an iPod nano on a PCLinuxOS 2007 desktop where Amarok is installed by default. If Amarok isn’t installed on your desktop, install it using your distribution’s package manager. The usage of Amarok is the same, regardless of the distribution.

Next Palm OS

Palm won’t be able to put out its Linux-based version of the Palm OS until next year, the company said last week. This is a slip from earlier expectations that it would be out later this year, according to Brighthand. Palm announced in April that it was developing its own Linux-based version of the Palm OS despite a similar project from Access, the company formerly known as Palmsource. Palm OS, which is actually now known as Garnet OS, has been looking older and older next to newer mobile operating systems such as Windows Mobile, as well as that iPhone thing you might have heard about. Palm wants to migrate Garnet OS to a Linux core while maintaining support for older Palm OS applications, but the project will apparently take longer than expected. That means that Palm will continue to compete against the iPhone and other challengers with Garnet OS, which …

Microsoft’s Deepfish Browser for Windows Mobile 5+

Microsoft Corp. has developed a next-generation mobile browser, Deepfish, whose aim is to render web pages with similar quality to a desktop system. The company has made the announcement at the ETech conference in San Diego, Calif., this Wednesday. Deepfish is a new approach to mobile browsing: instead of trying to fit the page to the mobile screen, losing some of the original layout and quality, it tries to maintain the full-form page and its interface enables you to zoom in and out. The page’s layout is preserved, so navigation menus, lists of search results of news headlines and other element can be browsed simply, the team said. In other browsers, such material might have been “bent so thoroughly to fit the usual single column layout that they were no longer legible,” the Live Labs team wrote. “Think about your mobile browsing experience today,” Gary William Flake, director of Microsoft …

Balik Kesuksesan MP3

MUNCULNYA perangkat lunak MP3 telah mendorong dunia musik untuk tampil di barisan terdepan. Format data ini memungkinkan transfer file musik lewat internet sehingga dapat dengan mudah diunduh (di-download) oleh masyarakat, langsung dari PC mereka. MP3 adalah kependekan dari MPEG Audio Layer III dan merupakan standar untuk kompresi audio yang dapat memperkecil file musik tanpa mengurangi (atau hanya sedikit mengurangi) kualitas suara yang dihasilkan. MP3 merupakan bagian dari keluarga MPEG, singkatan dari Motion Pictures Expert Group, suatu standar untuk format video dan audio yang menggunakan sistem kompresi. Di Indonesia, format MP3 mulai populer seiring dengan menjamurnya lapak-lapak maupun distributor penjualan software. Tempat-tempat semacam ini biasanya memperjual-belikan CD (compact disc) berisi lagu-lagu dalam format MP3. Setiap keping CD dengan kapasitas 700 MB sanggup menyimpan kurang lebih 200 lagu. Inilah keistimewaan format musik MP3 yang membedakannya dengan format musik lain. Ukuran file-nya yang relatif kecil sangat memudahkan dalam penyimpanan maupun pemindahan (transfer). [ad#adgridwork]
