A Few Great BeOS Apps Lower Prices

Both T-rackS and Corum III have lowered their prices. T-rackS, the amazing analog-simulating audio mastering software, has not been doing well enough on BeOS for IK Multimedia to continue it’s development. It has been “on hold” for a while. Eugenia Loli of BeNews emailed them, and they lowered the price on the latests BeOS version to $199. Thats $100 less than its original $299 pricetag. The best part is that if enough people buy it, it will hopefully start getting developed again. Meanwhile, Gobe has lowered the price of Corum III. It originally sold for $49.95, but is now available for $29.95. If you don’t already have it, now is a great time to grab it up. Its a great game.



Despite Rumors, Intel Webpad not using BeIA

Ever since Intel announced their web tablet, there have been rumors that it would be running BeIA. Today Intel revealed some of the specifications for the webpad, including the operating system. They are not using BeIA, but rather windriver VxWorks. This will probably put the current batch of Intel rumors to rest. That said, Qubit and Sony both have great BeIA devices on the way, so Intel could end up being left out in the cold. What’s your take on this interesting non-event?



Tucows reducing BeOS support?

Tucows has a notice on their “Coming Soon” page that BeOS is being moved to their “classic” section. They state this is because of the focus shift to IA’s reducing the applications being released. We know that everyone is just waiting for BONE/OpenGL to be released, but Tucows doesn’t. As David Powell points out, “When Tucows asked the BSD community about dropping support for their OS, there was a huge response and Tucows reconsidered their position.” Maybe we should let Tucows know exactly how active BeOS is. Developers, make sure your apps show up there. Users, write them. Be… release Bone and OpenGL! :P



Conspiracy Theories - Sony buying Be

This morning we had a reader submit a rather long explanation of an interesting theory. Basically, he believes Sony will use Be in an attack against Microsoft and Intel on the desktop. Probably by just buying Be outright. While we were preparing it for posting, and were checking his sources, he mentioned that he had also submitted it to the register. Sure enough, they posted it before us. That’s how it goes. In any case, read there, comment here. :)



Perilous Posting Pertaining the Pepper Port

Ok… everyone and their uncle’s roommate has submitted the fact that Peppers Port is in trouble.. apparently Martin Hekkelman got a job and doesn’t have time finish the mostly finished port of Pepper. So he is offering the position to someone else. Apparently there are a few issues, but they could be resolved within a few weeks. You can read more on his website, or email him. If any dev’s have some free time, this is pretty worthy, considering its close to release. Who knows, you may even get a cut of the action on sales. I think I will just stick to Eddie. hmm… Eddie vs. Pe == vi vs. emacs? :)

Just noticed that Jabber for BeOS has been released on bebits by Rapture in Venice. This is a great app which i have been testing for quite a while… It is currently useful mainly for chatting among jabber users, as the transports are iffy on the server side… but they should be working soon. This is the most stable IM client i have used on BeOS for any system, and I reccommend you all try it. :)

Hern Labs, known for porting the Opera webbrowser to BeOS, has been acquired by Opera Software. This is a very interesting turn of events, as it actually removes one of the parties involved in Opera on BeOS. Now it’s just Opera, and Be. Could this lead to faster development of 4.0 (or 5.0) on BeOS? I have no idea. What do you think?

When Zdnet asked about the other platforms, Opera officials would not comment.

Several BeGroovy readers wrote in to tell us that Opera 3.62 is apparently confirmed final. This is great news for all involved, and more interestingly, indicates the first directly-BeOS related press release we have seen in a long time. While it appears that this release was issued mainly by Opera, it includes quotes from JLG and is a very satisfying thing to read. Read on for the full release.

BeIA’s COMDEX appearance recieved some extensive covereage from CNN among others today. In CNNFn’s article about National Semiconductor and BeIA, they skip directly past Windows CE to focus on BeIA. It actually takes up about half of the articles’ attention. This is definately a good sign for BeIA and Be, but the article points at BeOS as a thing of the past. Check it out and then let us know what you think in our comments.
