Transmeta Webcast Today at Nine PST, Noon EST

Roblimo posted more than 14 years ago | from the don't-touch-that-dial! dept.

Transmeta 345

Almost everybody in the world wrote in with something like "Transmeta's big Crusoe announcement is today, and it'll be Webcast live on ZDTV starting at 9 a.m. PST." Later, after all the hoopla is over, we'll have a follow-up story on the proceedings as viewed through the eyes of several people who are there.

Theres really nothing to be said until after it has launched and we have more information. I certainly wouldn't mind being dazzled by a revolutionary processor if this truely is one.

That would be cool if Slashdot had correspondents. (0)

RobLimo:
Well-ee-doodle there neighborino! Uncle Robin here to tell the geeks of dot what's goin down (heh, i talk like an urban youth!). These good people of Transmeta, who I blindly worship because they provide work for my meaningless life, have given us a list of soundbites for me to read, and in lieu of any content or comprehension on my part, I will simply spout meaningless coprorate jargon

"Linux is great!"
"Tansmeta == good!"
etc

There has been ton of speculation- and all we know is that it is a cpu. We are pretty sure that it will be able to run x86 instructions though not natively. There has been talk that Linus's involvement is do to the fact of Linux intergration while others claim that his job have him writing more core software. There have been rumors of cavity searches each day when employees are done with work.

All these rumors and just bizzare pratices will be unveiled today and it is up to the slashdot republic to either bless it or curse.

Of course, whether they come out of the chute hot or not, we still owe Transmeta for paying for most of 2.2 and 2.3. ;-)

I expect that there will be stream files of the cast available later. I wonder if someone will hit on the cp command on the webserver precisely at noon...

Speculation based on the new (but now deceased) Amiga based computer and patents filed by Transmeta suggest that it is a processor capable of emulating an 80X86 at close to the same speed as the actual processor (clock cycle for clock cycle), as well as having its own native instruction set

Based on all the information that could ever be gleaned from the web site, it might as well be a new flavour of chewing gum.

GC (19160) | more than 14 years ago | (#1358161)

The Real G2 servers appear to be full to capacity now, so if you're trying to get the webcast on a Linux box I'm afraid you're probably going to be out of luck.

The "Windows Media" still appears to be accepting connection (at least it was when I connected 10 minutes ago).

Here's waiting... 13 minutes to go....

Re:ZDNET's NT servers are full (2)

turg (19864) | more than 14 years ago | (#1358163)

It's got nothing to do with lame servers. When you buy a Real server, you buy a license to serve up a certain amount of streams. When you've got that many connections already, everyone else gets the message about servers being at their capacity. Doesn't mater if the machine and the bandwidth could actually handle ten times as many users -- they just didn't pay Real enough money to serve this many users.

p.s. This is too on topic! :-) We're talking about the webcast and why we won't be able to see it.

Theres really nothing to be said until after it has launched and we have more information. I certainly wouldn't mind being dazzled by a revolutionary processor if this truely is one.

Unfortunately until there is some (and I mean *any*) hardware support this is pretty useless. The OS has to support the processor.

Actually, mint flavor Pez isn't new. Peppermint was the original flavor of pez when they first came out as a replacement for smokers. The original dispensers didn't have cartoon heads, they looked like a cigarette lighter.

As for the electric dispensers, I had a circular one that I bought at K-mart, but it kept jamming and then it just quit working after about a week. We need Tux Pez dispensers.

Transmeta Transmission... (3)

jd (1658) | more than 14 years ago | (#1358201)

It's interesting that the head honcho of ZDTV is the one who is paying the cash for Transmeta. And that they're the ones breaking the news. Or maybe it's not the least bit surprising. :) Transmeta must be feeling good - having your own TV station for public announcements is better than anything Microsoft ever achieved. :)

For those impatient, don't worry! Using the latest bzip2 compression software, I have squashed a time machine into this box: [#]. Just extract, expand and go forward one hour. If you get back, could you post the summary here?

The Operation Begins (3)

As art imitates life, life imitates art. We're watching what may very well be the most interestingly designed media campaign of the last few years--certainly the most intentionally mysterious, curiously designed, creatively leaked(certainly the most...effectively subversive use of the US Patent Office) company the computer industry has ever seen.

Twenty minutes, and the gloves come off. They've had years to prepare for this; now we get to see if the computer industry gets its first proper launch.

No more delays. No more promises. The most carefully marketed R&D house in Silicon Valley is about to open their doors--it'll be intriguing to see if they're as skillful on the open scene, under attack by the whispering galleries of competitors.

Hiring Linus was genius--you couldn't buy a more devoted audience.

As pointed out by an AC, paste the following into the "Open Location...":

Not sure if this is the right stream or not though. But I'm getting audio...

Turns out that the Crusoe is an embedded processor that will be used in the next line of electric Pez dispensers. And yes, the OS is Linux and you can put your Pez dispensers in a Beowulf cluster, but be careful when you try and add a Pez dispenser full of that new mint flavor Pez because it uses a different networking protocol that throws the others off...

ZDNet and Real (4)

Mark F. Komarinski (97174) | more than 14 years ago | (#1358217)

So lessee....ZDNET is using Real to broadcast video and audio, and you need the G2 release. Okay...so I get G2 and install it. Still get those nice "you need a plugin" from ZDNET. The Linux version of G2 doesn't have plugin support!

How are we supposed to see/hear it? Anyone know a way of getting the stream without using the plugin?
