Standing Wave

Damn tired. Here's some overdue RSS-foo:

  • Zimmermann released , which I have yet to take a look at (but which is a genius approach at VoIP encryption).
  • There's a bunch of noise about the getting an EyeToy, VoIP capabilities, etc. The only thing I'm interested is decent RSS and Flash support...
  • There's also a lot of noise about getting  to boot on an , which seems to be a particularly self-supporting waste of time.
  • Lucent, in InfoWorld (via Daily Wireless) gets it utterly, utterly wrong - running VoIP over any kind of current mobile data connection is a particularly pointless (and wasteful) exercise, that won't stop being pointless and wasteful just because there's more uplink speed...
  • I can confirm that the update makes for a snappier, slightly cleaner Entourage, but also that it still doesn't see task folders or talk to customized OWA setups, and is therefore useless to me. Sync services support looks nice, but I refuse to fire up until starts supporting phones sold in the latter half of 2005...
  • Ah, the acquisition of 's creators. I've always considered their product to be brilliant, but there's got to be more to this than integration.
  • This has just got to be the dumbest name change in Open Source software. Ever. Still, I'm told the Windows version runs rings around Tandberg soft clients, and I hope to get a chance to try it soon.
  • Core 5 will be delayed a bit (to next week), which means I won't waste a significant portion of my weekend trying to download it.
