First off, apologies for breaking everyone's links to the Python Grimoire, but I made it plain that the URL wasn't permanent. You will find a new version linked at the download page, with a few significant updates, fixes and my first attempt at TiddlyWiki macros to provide direct links to the Python online references.
Next up, the news.
- There's a Mac OS X security update out. Check your Software Update preference pane and the release notes (mind you, these are for both Server and Client).
- Delicious Library was finally updated to 1.5.2. Let's see if I can search in Amazon UK now...
- A round-up of Nikon/D50 reviews. I'm still set on the Canon/EOS 20D, but it doesn't hurt to read up on the competition.
- Rumors of the HTC/Wizard's impending arrival on US shores, and a hands-on article on the HTC/Tornado.
- So, let me see if I got this straight: Nokia gets a few samples out on the street, and nabs the European Media Phone of the Year award? Oh, come on...
- Why DRM will kill mobile music. Very little to do with mobile music at all and a canned reference to the rare insight shown by the Virgin USA CEO, which is nice, but kind of a disappointment as the piece was written by Carlo Longino. The CD analogy makes sense, but the actual point gets lost somewhere along the way.
- The first public mention I've seen of the Samsung Series 60 phones (the one on the far right looks very familiar to me).
- Via the spool, Using PyObjC for Developing Cocoa Applications With Python by Jonathan Rentzsch.
- gVisit - an intriguing use of Google Maps. And, incidentally, A9 is joining in the fun too. It's here, it's extremely neat, and it's pretty damn useless to anyone outside the US (even if you're in the UK). Maybe I should send them an updated copy of the Fool's World Map...
