OSNews, Generic OSes The open source Contiki operating system and its commercial Thingsquare distribution are making strides towards the connected home. According to a Computerworld article, a new LED light bulb manufacturer is putting small computers into their light bulbs. Each computer runs the Contiki OS, which gives each bulb an IP address and allows them to be controlled with a smartphone application. To connect the bulbs to the application, the bulbs use both Wi-Fi and the much lower power IEEE 802.15.4 mesh technology.

The game Epic (Amiga) was a failure according to some reviews, but others gave it high marks.

So something can be an epic failure and an epic success at the same time until you observe it yourself.

Epic. Superposition.

Epic was one of the first "cinemagraphic" sci-fi soap game on 4th generation computers.

Epic graphics and music. Nice game-play, yet repetitive in the long run...
