Default OT: Hack your TV

Howdy,

I could not resist this posting.
As many of you know, I've been a
real pain in the microprocessor lately....
Particularly about Arm, A15 and Samsung.

Well in keeping with that tradition, it seems
Samsung TV's are now supporting SSH into them
and directly and hacking the firmware:

Samsung is also very progressive on the A-15
Arm development boards, which are sure to
create quite a stir when they are widely
available (soon I've heard):

Samsung Galaxy Nexus cell-phone that runs SEandroid, natively:

Samsung is also moving aggresively to support
open source drivers for (ARM) graphics chips:

ARM is preparing for domination and is looking rather cool these
days and Samsung is surely one of the most appealing
(ARM) vendors for the open source community.


enjoy,
James
