Apple store, Apple TV PBX

In brief: Apple is preparing to open its latest retail store in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, April 14th with a preview of the new outlet. At least one Apple TV fan has managed to get the Asterisk PBX system running on an Apple TV, collecting the $500 reward offered by AppleTVHacks.net. Nokia has released an iSync plug-in page that offers support for its mobile handsets, and Palm has used its Investor Day event to announce that the next version of its PalmOS will be based on a new Linux kernel. Apple is set to open its latest Apple Store at 217 Summit Boulevard in Birmingham, Alabama. The grand opening will be held at 10:00 a.m. CDT.

Asterisk installed on Apple TV

The winner of the AppleTVHacks.net bounty to get the Asterisk PBX system running on Apple TV has been declared, with user l0rdr0ck collecting the $500 reward after submitting the first verifiable procedure. The site offers detailed instructions on how to install the software on Apple's set top box, and includes several links to additional guides when necessary.

Nokia launches iSync page

Nokia has erected a Web page specifically for Mac OS X users who own Nokia cellular handsets to offer a series of iSync plug-ins that synchronize the calendar, contacts, and other information between iCal and various Nokia mobile phones. Select models that need plug-ins require Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later prior to installation, and many phones do not require users to install a plug-in to use their Nokia handsets with iSync.

Palm turns to Linux

Palm has announced that the next iteration of its PalmOS will be based on a new Linux kernel, veering from the company's history of using proprietary software or Windows Mobile for its handheld smartphones. The new operating system is being developed entirely within Palm, and should even substitute components formerly supplied by Access, such as the Web browser.
