Intel's Moblin OS 2.1 Can be Downloaded Now

SAN FRANCISCO - Intel announced operating system (OS) that they have developed a Linux-based, that is Moblin 2.1, can now be downloaded for netbook users.

Moblin 2.1 is intended to be a preview of material to the developers in order to bring the user interface to a variety of improvements, in accordance with the Linux Foundation, which is the manager of the OS developers.

Intel's Moblin 2.1 announced attendance at Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, United States, as an upgrade from Moblin 2.0. Through this latest version, Intel hopes the OS were developed and encouraged not only as an OS for netbooks, but also for desktop and handheld devices based on Atom processor.

"Moblin version 2.1 will be in addition to the development of Moblin 2.0 by adding several new features," explained one official Imad Sousou Intel, through its official blog, PC World cited Saturday (26.9.2009).

"To the beginning of this OS is intended only for the netbook, but a version for handheld devices such as mobile Internet devices will soon adjust to the availability and release of the platform on their hardware," he continued.

Moblin 2.1 is the new applications offered by the so-called Moblin Garage and Moblin Application Installer which allows users to download, install, or remove software.

Applications in this OS can increase support 3G mobile broadband data in order to enhance capabilities, and Bluetooth support also provides a better way. This OS also has better language support and the Linux kernel is updated.

Moblin 2.1 also includes support for the platform Pine Trail, which is an Intel platform for a netbook in the future. Pine Trail to integrate graphics processors in the Atom CPU. Netbooks based on Pine Trail will likely appear early next year.

For the developer preview version is usually released to identify and remove bugs. This release is also used to make the release programmers to build software around the OS. Availability of Moblin 2.1 on a wider scale planned attendance at the fourth quarter.

First Open Source Camera in the World

Two researchers in the field of photography from Stanford University recently discovered the first camera in the open source world.

Andrew Adams and Marc Levoy, student and professor in computer science at Stanford created the first camera that can be programmed to allow a camera no longer limited by the software vendor, comes from a particular camera.

The camera was named Frankencamera, adopt the Linux operating system so that the programmer can create algorithms to process images differently, or even better than those made by Canon or Nikon cameras, for example.

"The purpose of this project is to build a camera platform open source," said March Levoy, quoted from the Stanford University website.

The camera itself is an open source module consists of the Nokia N95 camera phone, electronic circuit board (circuit board), a pair of lenses from Canon. Nicknamed Frankencamera, because its design which still looks bad, because it still uses the camera body unused.

Virtually, all the features of the camera, good focus, exposure, lens speed, the flash, everything is controlled by software that can be programmed by the owner of the camera. Not only that, open source platform also allows users of this dSLR camera to a complete customization options.

Frankencamera can do tuning technique High Dynamic Range (HDR) or a technique that combines the image of an object from the condition of the brightest light, down to the darkest. At the same time, they also make a video camera can capture high resolution video recording.

With a particular algorithm, the camera that only has the ability. berkecapatan video recording 30 frames per second (fps), will be combined with the camera shots still images periodically, into the frame the video recording.

Like a computer, this camera can also be connected to the Internet. Andrew aspires to, future programs specifically designed to be accessed ii camera and used by many people, like people accessing applications on the iPhone App Store.

In one year, two researchers hoped they could introduce this platform with minimum cost to all people, at an affordable price.

Levoy donors expect to produce in large numbers, with prices less than U.S. $ 1000 or approximately USD 10 million.
