Gifts, Contests, Easter Eggs A few days ago we published a review of the Linux-based Neuros OSD recorder and player. Now, you can win one of these devices! All you have to do is research on the product to find out its current capabilities, and then comment below with suggestions on how to make it better and with ideas for new applications and hacks. The Neuros Technology guys will pick the best idea in 3 days time and we will provide them with the winner's email address so they can send him/her a free Neuros OSD device (that info won't be used for other purposes). If you wish to comment but not to participate in the competition, please clearly state so on your comments. Update: The winner is FunkyELF for this post. Congrats!

I always wanted device that would clearly speak what track, chapter, movie it is playing.

It definitely should be script able, so anyone could make their own audio messages(alarm clock, birthday reminder,beep at every full hour). Plus reading ebooks. Default configuration should include the most useful scripts.

Other feature that I would like to see is fully integrated calendar. Scheduling recordings, adding remainders, alarm clock(+ above feature = being woken up by shorts form Neuromancer).
