Internet Appliance field a dead-end?

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Ryan on Wednesday, 21 Mar, 2001 @ 3:20 PM

Several companies in the internet appliance market are now leaving the market, citing it as an immature market that is “likely to generate losses for the foreseeable future.” Most recently, 3com dropped their device, Audrey, after less than stellar performance. Gateway and Netpliance both stopped their IA plans, and Intel and Compaq have had slow sales. Does this all spell the beginning of the end for BeIA (and possibly Be Inc), or is it just cold feet and growing pains? Perhaps the upcoming e-Villa or the new phillips devices will help us find out. What do you think?

BeEmulated, the definitive BeOS Emulation Site, yesterday ran an interview with Caz, the man responsible for tons of different BeOS based emulators. Its a good read, and has one of the strangest (and slightly disturbing) lines I have ever read, where Caz wishes for “an emulator which could simulate Heaven and Hell, so I could decide where I want to go when I die.”

The "Any" Key

In an effort to get the Any Key back up after our recent “crisis”, Rob has sent in several of his other comics in the form of one frame strips. They will be running temporarily while he builds up a lead time for the main strip again. Of course, you regular readers already know this, cause Doug explained it all on monday. :)

Forums Updated with LOTS of New Features

Just a quick note to point out that I updated our forums last night, which added several new features, including poll threads, avatars for users, thread ratings, much faster response, and a community calendar which i will possibly create a menu item for as well. Also, In the next few weeks there will be some work done on the user system to integrate the two sections of our site, so be prepared. Finally, I have added a new banner management system, so we will be announcing custom advertising plans in the near future, for those of you who have asked. You can vote on and discuss the changes to our forums here.
