Nokia and others launching "iphone-like" gear by Q2 2008? Taiwan’s OEM reporting pulse — DigiTimes — claims that handset makers Asustek, BenQ, Compal and Arima Communications are all "aggressively developing iPhone-like products" for 2008. According to their sources, the devices will run on Microsoft’s Windows Mobile platform and target business markets with features such as 3G and GPS. DigiTimes‘ sources also claim that Nokia will release its Symbian-based "iPhone-like handset" in the first half of 2008. True or not, that’s a lot of Apple hate-bait to swallow this early in the morning.

Featured Linux Download: OS X style widgets with Screenlets - Screenlets.png

Linux only: Open-source app Screenlets runs Mac OS X-style widgets on the Linux desktop.

Practically identical to Dashboard widgets and Windows Vista gadgets, Screenlets are small under-the-desktop apps including RSS readers, weather reports, sticky notes, etc. that add a great deal of functionality and convenience mixed with a dash of eye-candy. Screenlets play very well with Beryl and include a bunch of location preferences like always on top, always underneath, etc. Additionally, with the widget plugin for Beryl, you can hide and show your Screenlets exactly the same way you can with Mac OS X widgets.

While there aren't nearly as many Screenlets as gDesklets, kDesklets, or aDesktets, Screenlets tight integration with Beryl makes it a must have for desktop app lovers. Screenlets is a free download for Linux only.

Flock 0.9 lands gracefully -

The Flock project has been building a "social Web browser" since 2005. The upcoming Flock 0.9 release adds new blogging features, integrates media streams into the browser, and includes an overhaul of the Flock bookmark system. It's not perfect yet, but Flock 0.9 is a big leap forward.
