As mentioned earlier, I wanted to package the KDE videoblog client kitty for Debian. I finally found the time to really do it, and the package has entered Debian unstable a few days ago. The first bug has already been reported (sigh), but I'm working on it.
kitty got even mentioned in Debian Weekly News (w00t!)
I stumbled over a very nice article over at MacDevCenter which explains how to use a cheap, standard A/V-to-RCA cable to direct the video output of a 5g video iPod to your TV.
That's sure something I need to try soonish! I was a bit reluctant to buy the not-so-cheap Apple cable. This guide not only saves me some money, but it's also nicer being able to use standard components instead of proprietary stuff...
Update 2006-01-07: I have tested video playback using such a standard cable today and it works fine! The video quality is quite good, too, even at 320x240 (but you can probably also have bigger videos, I guess). Using a cable which only has two connectors (white and red probably) works too, but you only get audio and no video then.
I noticed iFeedPod, which seems to be an RSS Reader for the iPod. It sounds like it syncs the feed items from your computer to the iPod for "offline" reading. I really like the idea, but the implementation is Mac-only and only free as in beer (not free as in speech) as far as I can tell.
Does anybody know of a similar software which runs on Linux and is Free Software? Do I have to implement it from scratch?
OMG! I would have never believed this if I hadn't seen the videos with my own eyes: Richard M. Stallman of GNU and Free Software fame singing various songs, and Gilberto Gil, famous musician and currently Brazil's minister of culture, jamming on his guitar. Unbelievable.
