IRIS 9000 Bluetooth Speaker & Speakerphone
Having an artificially intelligent computer at our beck and call has long been the fantasy of every green blooded sci-fi fan amongst us. Finally Siri on the iPhone has given us a tantalizing taste of this promised future... and we're lapping it up. However it's not all roses in our 2012 A.I. future tech fantasy. Sure Siri can schedule appointments, make funny quips and answer inane trivia questions with the help of Wolfram Alpha but she has one failing... to get her to listen you've got to have your hands on your phone and push a button. Somehow when we imagined the future of smart computer companions we assumed that shouting at them from across the room to do our bidding was part of the package. Apparently not. Therefore you can see why we were forced to create the IRIS 9000. Simply place your iPhone into the cradle and use the included micro remote to trigger Siri. Just tap the IRIS 9000 remote button once, listen for the Siri chime, and speak your command. The built in mic on the IRIS 9000 picks up your voice and the embedded speaker amplifies Siri's spoken responses. You can also make and receive calls using the IRIS 9000 like a standard speakerphone. Oh and did we mention that the glowing eye flickers along with Siri's voice? How's that for amazing Buckaroo Banzai future tech? Product Features Classic Sci-fi styling. Aluminum accents. Included micro remote triggers Siri with a single button press Built-in mic picks up your voice Embedded speaker amplifies Siri's responses Use as a standard speakerphone to make and receive calls Glowing LED eye flickers along with Siri's voice Power: 3 AAA batteries (not included) or USB Bluetooth® v3.0 + EDR Class II Supports the Hands Free Profile (HFP) and Headset Profile (HSP) Exclusive product designed and manufactured by ThinkGeek Important: Please read all product documentation before you begin your odyssey with IRIS 9000. *iPhone and Siri are registered trademarks of Apple Inc. **This is not an officially licensed Apple product and all references to iPhone and Siri are only used to indicate compatibility.

We'll use the more than apt description of Linux from ESR's Jargon File: Linux /lee'nuhks/ or /li'nuks/, not /li:'nuhks/ n. The free Unix workalike created by Linus Torvalds and friends starting about 1991. The pronunciation /li'nuhks/ is preferred because the name `Linus' has an /ee/ sound in Swedish (Linus's family is part of Finland's 6% ethnic-Swedish minority) and Linus considers English short /i/ to be closer to /ee/ than English long /i:/. This may be the most remarkable hacker project in history -- an entire clone of Unix for 386, 486 and Pentium micros, distributed for free with sources over the net (ports to Alpha and Sparc and many other machines are also in use). Linux is what GNU aimed to be, and it relies on the GNU toolset. But the Free Software Foundation didn't produce the kernel to go with that toolset until 1999, which was too late. Other, similar efforts like FreeBSD and NetBSD have been technically successful but never caught fire the way Linux has; as this is written in 2001, Linux is seriously challenging Microsoft's OS dominance. It has already captured 31% of the Internet-server market and 25% of general business servers. Black shirt with the word 'linux' written with a mirror image on the front and 'Tux' the Linux mascot on the back. Tux logo by Larry Ewing.

Linux Kernel Poster - Typography Art Print - 30W x 24H inches
The Linux Kernel is one of the most prominent examples of free and open source software. At its core is the process scheduler - initially conceived and created by Linus Torvalds in 1991. The process scheduler is a highly important, if not the most important, component to every single multitasking operating system. It handles memory management, drivers, networking, file systems, etc. Lists source code from the Kernel version 188.8.131.52: sched.c, sched_clock.c, sched_cpupri.c, sched_cpupri.h, sched_debug.c, and sched_fair.c.
