"A big week for news on the embedded Linux front: Sun's $2 billion Linux play, more stuff on the TiVo, a look at Yopy running Heretic, Bayonne sets its sights on voice over IP, and and the answer to what a dwarf penguin is doing among the giants at the OSDL..."

  • "TiVo, TV Your Way", is a must-read look at hacking the device. This feature includes photos and descriptions of everything you need to tap the PowerPC-based Linux box lurking under the consumer-friendly exterior:

Be sure to stop by the site's main page and take a look: we reported on announcements of a new embedded Linux platform for set-top devices, some interesting facts on the why's and how's of real-time Linux, and found a provocative article from the Washington Post asking whether WAP is already dead."
