Links: Picoserver and iVideo


Japanese firm Package Technology is coming out with a 42 x 23.5 x 61 mm box called the PicoServer that’s essentially a web/mail server with an Ethernet port and three sockets for sensors (one out, two in).

This could be a packaged implementation of the iButton TINI ICs from Dallas Semiconductor. Then again, it might not be. Either way, it’s interesting and convenient. I just wish they were cheaper than the $375 or so Engadget claims they’ll cost.


iVideo is the equivalent of iPhoto or iTunes for your video files. Items are organized using playlists and thumbnails, and can be double-clicked to watch.

I’ve wanted iPhoto to organize the short video files that I make with my Clie or Olympus digital camera, but it’s not happenening. This looks like it might work.
