While i normally find "Linux ported to run on your [nintendo/toaster/foo] stories only academically interesting, i think the thought of Linux running on 1st Gen, 2nd Gen iPhones (and iPod Touch) a particularly awesome thought.
a) it suddenly means all sorts of possibilities for cute intelligent devices all over the house (with cool sensors - once they can be acessed)
b) it means possibly really cheap, really portable *nix (really pretty) in your pocket
c) it means i can take my wifes old iPhone, and have fun with it..
d) it makes android on the iPhone look like an early in the new year prospect!

found this online last night. try in FF or IE7:

a) At the end of the year we usually end up getting geek-gifts.. from SensePost, to SensePost.. Last years iPod nano's were always going to be a tough act to follow.. but i think the picture says it all:
b) About a week ago i blogged about connecting "gurgle" to my tv.. Running the VGA cable through the tiny hole in the wall (2 of them actually) seemed like a good idea to hide the cable mess.. "No problem" i said.. i simply bought 2 VGA cables, cut the heads off of one of them, and proceeded to reconnect the cables at the other side of the wall..... Have you seen a cross section of the VGA cable?? its 15 tiny cables of varying thickness (though all about as delicate as the pairs you see in a standard ethernet cable). One plaster, Some solder and a lot of patience later, im truly suprised to see that it actually works.. (i just wont reccomend this course of action to anyone.. Get a drill.. make a bigger hole!)
