FUTURE: On-Demand Air Travel

by HutchTech In reply to HutchTech Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">I'd seen some initial research that NASA was doing in the <em>On-Demand Airline</em> arena, but never expected to see companies using this model quite so soon. If driving to a smaller, local airport, leaving when you want and landing where you want intrigues you, then check out the link at Release1-0.com below.

MEDIA: Do-It-Yourself DVR

by HutchTech In reply to HutchTech Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">My ancient, yet beloved,ReplayTV bit the dust a few weeks ago. I've loved my ReplayTV because content was easily accessible via my network on any PC (yes, I could even stream the MPEG2 content via WiFi). However, my few days without it made me realize that I need to upgrade to a PC-based (or possibly Mac-based) DVR hooked to the TV. While the initial hardware investment is extreme (if you're looking for quality encoding you're going to have to pay for a quality video card, or in my case, two of them), eventually you save on not paying the monthly subscription fees for the programming guides. <a href="http://systm.org">Systm.org</a> recently had a Linux option you should check out. Orb is still bugging me to try out their solution (which I promise to do prior to any other option, I promise). I'm anxious to see how the new Windows Media Center OS measures up. Below is a link to a PCMag.com article on do-it-yourself DVR options. You might also want to check out their sister site <a href="http://extremetech.com">extremetech.com</a> for DVR alternatives. Let me know what you think the best options might be. <br /><br />- Hutch <br /><br /><a href="http://www.pcmag.com/print_article2/0,1217,a=136763,00.asp">Solution from PC Magazine: Do-It-Yourself DVR</a> </div>

APPLE: iTunes 4.9 - Podcasting Goes Mainstream

by HutchTech In reply to HutchTech Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Earlier in the month Steve jobs announced that the next version of iTunes would support podcasting. I know I'll be reading up on how to begin my podcasts (yes, coming soon, HutchTech Radio). I advise you to use the link below and check it out for yourself.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Hutch Tech Radio is on the Way

by HutchTech In reply to HutchTech Blog

Friends, Readers, Techizens, Lend me your ears! With the release of
iTunes 4.9, we finally have a reason to push forward production on our
first weekly Hutch Tech Radio broadcast. We're looking to cover
anything technology related (just look at the blog to see how varied
our topics are). We'll cover both personal and business technology,
interviews (hopefully), network security, product reviews, etc., etc.,
etc. Don?t worry, just because I?m an iTunes fan doesn?t mean you have
to use it to get the podcast. We?ll be encoding in .MP3 format and that
should allow you to download and listen to the broadcast in whatever
way works best for you.<br />
<br />
So, what does all this mean to you? As
we begin our foray into broadcasting, we want your questions. The
podcast won?t be anything without your input. To help stimulate you in
this regard we?re going to be giving away a free Hutch Tech T-shirt to
the best question submitted each week. Since this will be a podcast,
we?re looking for audio questions, but you can also send your question
via e-mail. I will endeavor to respond to every question, but
undoubtedly this will become impossible. As we begin, I?ll be giving a
free Hutch Tech T-shirt to the first 5 usable audio questions
submitted. Let me stress <em>usable</em>. You?ll need to e-mail your question to <a href="mailto:HutchTech@gmail.com">HutchTech@gmail.com</a>.
Record your question in .WAV or .MP3 format. Start out with your name,
where you?re from and your question. Try to keep the length of your
question to 30 seconds or less. Believe it or not, you can say quite a
bit in 30 seconds.<br />
<br />
I?m shooting for the initial broadcast to be
released by July 8-9, 2005?but no promises. Send in your questions and
keep checking the blog for further details.<br />
<br />

HUTCH TECH RADIO: Hutch Tech Logo Contest

by HutchTech In reply to HutchTech Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">If there are any budding artists out there we're in need of a Hutch Tech logo. I'd like it to be simple enough to use both on the site and our t-shirts. Besides, it would be kind of difficult to give away a Hutch Tech t-shirt without your logo.<br /><br />The winner will have their design plastered all over the site, as well as the shirts, and I'll gladly give them a plug on the show.<br /><br />- Hutch</div>

RSS: Longhorn [Hearts] RSS

by HutchTech In reply to HutchTech Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">We're not yet certain if we're going to have to wait for fully integrated IE RSS features until the release of Longhorn, but evidently Microsoft is serious about getting your subscription-based content into IE (and more). Check out the link below for video from Gnomedex where MS previews some of the RSS options they're preparing.<br /><br />- Hutch <br /><br /><a href="http://zdnet.com.com/1606-2-5766920.html">Looking at RSS in Longhorn - News - ZDNet</a> </div>

JAVA: The Participation Super Highway is Coming - ZDNet

by HutchTech In reply to HutchTech Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">I've long felt the guys at Sun just don't live in the same world you and I do. Yes, they had an awesome product back in the day, but their lack of innovation has forced them to turn to Java as the last best hope for Sun-kind. Now they're dissing the "Information Super Highway" and replacing it with the "Participation Super Highway". I'm not sure I agree with them, but they deserve one last gasp at importance. <br /><br />Evidently your next-gen DVD player will use Java as the standard interface programming language. Sounds cool enough, maybe now we'll get some extra DVD content/games/extras worth our time. Check on the link to a ZDNet video on the Blu-Ray/Sun announcement. <br /><br />- Hutch <br /><br /><a href="http://zdnet.com.com/1606-2-5764878.html">Schwartz: The Information Age is dead - News - ZDNet</a> </div>

HOAX: Stupid People Don't Deserve E-mail

by HutchTech In reply to HutchTech Blog

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">I couldn't believe the following article from eWeek (see link below): E-mail Hoaxes Spread Latest Threats. Are stupid people still opening attachments they're not expecting? Do people still not use up-to-date virus protection? Should stupid people be allowed to have e-mail? Remember, all this is coming from a guy who didn't use anti-virus protection until 2001 because I was smart enough to avoid those things that would infect me--or so I wanted to believe. I never did get infected, but the superviruses and worms of that era made me take another look at my security strategy. <br /><br />Anyway, perhaps we need to force people to take a test before they get e-mail. Maybe even web-based e-mail services should start using a system requiring user's PCs to meet minimum AV and Spyware requirements before they can even connect to the mail system. On the other hand, maybe these are the same people who are making spam so profitable by actually buying things from vendors that use it. They're the ones still buying stuff from door-to-door salesmen. Caveat Emptor. <br /><br />- Hutch <br /><br /><a href="http://www.eweek.com/print_article2/0,2533,a=155090,00.asp">E-Mail Hoaxes Spread Latest Threats</a> </div>
