A couple of geek notes

I found this in the print copy of Wired. The GP2X, a $180 handheld gaming and media device that runs Linux, ships with an SDK and runs on AA batteries. It supports SD cards and USB 2.0. It plays MPEG-4 and DivX and displays multiple image formats.

In other news, Dawn Chmielewski is joining the LA Times as a multimedia reporter. She's a good tech reporter and hopefully will raise the overall level of journalist quality there.
