AmigaOne A1222 updateTalking about communicating, I receive a lot of requests for information about the release date for the AmigaOne A1222. At AmiWest 2017 and Amiga32, in agreement with Hyperion Entertainment, I was able to present the first public showing of the AmigaOne A1222 running a pre-release beta version of AmigaOS 4.1. I was able to demonstrate that AmigaOS4.1 is very stable on the A1222 which also fully supports the latest RadeonHD 3.x, including the new 64-bit VRAM feature, along with Warp 3D Nova and Warp3D-SI. However, I did reveal that work was still ongoing on the Audio and Ethernet drivers and well as FPU optimsation. The A1222 has not been totally cut-off from cyberspace since the AmigaOS 4.1 beta iso included a driver for an inexpensive USB-to-Ethernet device which allowed the A1222 to connect to the web. A number of the beta testers, including me, have been using the device for online access and I even wrote and posted an earlier blog using the device/driver. The USB-to-Ethernet device was a good stop-gap measure but obviously not suitable for the final AmigaOne A1222 release.Remote Desktop on AmigaOne A1222 to Windows PCI’m actually writing this blog using a combination Odyssey and Remote Desktop on my AmigaOne A1222 to test out a new on-board Ethernet driver written by AmigaOS 4.1 developer Rene’ Olsen. 🙂 .I’m pleased to report that Rene’s driver appears to be very stable and works well. I’ve downloaded multiple copies of the latest Enhancer Software v2.x beta archives and installed numerous programs and utilities from AMIStore and transferred gigabytes of data over my LAN without any problems.Running OWB on AmigaOne A1222Even better the driver appears to be on par and perhaps a little faster that the standard OS4 network driver for my RTL8139 Ethernet card. Incidentally, Rene’ also wrote the driver for the USB-to-Ethernet device so I suppose it’s no surprise that the initial release of his Ethernet driver works so well. I’ve attached a couple of screengrabs showing Remote Desktop and Odyssey on my A1222, two programs which are always a good tests of network performance. The driver has now been issued to the A1222 beta testers for thorough stress testing. Rene’ received some help from Justin Hibbits who was recommended to Steven Solie by Alex Perez. Alex is another A1222 & X5000 beta tester who has a particular fondness for Linux. Justin is a committer at FreeBSD who, according to Steven, is looking for help with the FreeBSD port. If any Linux motivated A1222 beta testers want to help Justin complete FreeBSD for Tabor/A1222 please make contact and I will pass on your details. We already have the Atlantis and Pathfinder Tabor boards working 24/7 building Debian SPE thanks to the work of John Paul Adrian Glaubitz.

First up the future of C64 got a shade brighter today, as official production started on Gideon’s long awaited Ultimate 64 boards. The photos look awesome and you can see more of them now in the 1541 Ultimate Facebook Group. The latest news is that some 500+ boards should be produced between now and the end of April, and the website will open up pre-orders periodically during this period. More boards should be created to fill remaining demand afterwards. These boards are not for sale as of yet, as further testing takes place to help ensure the FPGA based modern 64 motherboards are as solid as possible before release. You can find out more on the official Ultimate 64 website.

The Aircraft for Everyone Lilium enables you to travel 5 times faster than a car by introducing the world’s first all-electric vertical take-off and landing jet: an air taxi for up to 5 people. You won’t have to own one, you will simply pay per ride and call it with a push of a button. It’s our mission to make air taxis available to everyone and as affordable as riding a car. In 1894, Otto Lilienthal began experimenting with the first gliders and imagined a future in which we could all fly wherever we want

Well, hot-diggity-damn, BlackBerry’s KEYone is one hell of a comeback Much, much more than a nostalgia trip 28 Apr 2017 at 13:02, Andrew Orlowski 24-Hour Test The hottest phone in town this week isn’t the new Samsung but, improbably, BlackBerry’s comeback device. Partly this is a quirk of a staggered rollout by TCL, which has awarded the UK virtual exclusivity for a month before the US gets it. But it’s not entirely down to production issues. After 24 hours with the KEYone as a main phone, I’ll stick
In case you have missed the announcement of the Blackberry Mercury AKA KEYone …
Treat your Amiga 1200 with a new case Because time has done his odd job with help of UV light your Amiga 1200 case is most certainly yellowed to a certain level. This mild coloration for some or very hard yellowed for others is due to fire retardant chemicals located within the original cases plastic itself. These chemicals reacts to light and more precisely to UV light and one of the result for that is this yellow color your case is getting. Retr0brighting isn’t a permanent solution as the result diminish

The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has been growing in importance for the automotive industry over the years. You can hardly fail to notice that this year, as in previous years, the big automakers vie for floor space and attention with the glut of big screen TVs and other consumer goods. As always, BlacBerry-QNX will be in the North Hall, proudly in the middle of the big automotive OEMs. At CES BlacBerry-QNX has an enviable history of bringing concept cars that rival anything on the show floor, with one important difference – ours are not pure flights of fancy, and we show technologies that will become realities in the near future.We started this trend back in 2010 with an LTE-connected Toyota Prius – 18 months before the first commercial LTE deployment in mid-2011. Working with Alcatel-Lucent to provide the experimental network, we demonstrated Google maps functionality with local search and an embedded Pandora radio app in a car for the first time. Connectivity is standard in many cars today, but in 2010 we demonstrated the future.
