Opening the box: The story of the Pandora (so far)

| Open source handhelds have been with us for a while now. Those of you with a
| decent memory will recall the excellent GP2X from Korean manufacturer
| Gamepark Holdings, a device capable of performing numerous different
| functions, the most appealing of which is the ability to emulate several
| retro gaming platforms such as the Mega Drive, NES and PC Engine. Owning such
| a machine is like having an entire video game collection in your pocket.

| The more open source machines, the better – they are the future. The Eee PC
| has already shown then a machine running Linux can sell as well as – or even
| better than – a machine running Windows. Open source is the future, there is
| an ever increasing demand for such machines and manufacturers are now
| becoming aware of the fact you don't have to run Windows anymore – the
| internet is the future and it does not need Microsoft.

| your American dollars is all it takes to enjoy the 2.8-inch QVGA OLED screen,
| 533MHz ARM9 processor, 64MB of RAM, 16GB of flash, and 5 hour battery life --
| not to mention a Flash 7 player, MPEG4, xViD and DivX compatibility and new

Emulation station: GP2X F-200 gaming handheld reviewed

,----[ Quote ]
| A long-time gaming buddy of mine hipped me to this system a few months back,
| and I have to admit I was skeptical at first because he is prone to a bit of
| hyperbole when it comes to things he owns and I don't. But, after spending
| some quality, hands-on time with the GP2X F-200, I have to say that my
| friend's assessment was spot on: this is a quality handheld and well worth
| the $170 price tag for the emulation capabilities alone. In my mind, the
| multimedia functionality offered on the GP2X is just icing on the electronic
| cake. * * * * *

US Copyright Office grants abandonware rights

,----[ Quote ]
| What does this mean? Well, those retro games -- classic or otherwise --
| that you can't seem to find anywhere can now be preserved without fear
| of ramifications. Although it is still unlawful to distribute the old
| games, free or otherwise, rarely do any abandonware cases go to court.
| The ruling is more symbolic than anything, but a step in the right
| direction.
