According to this report in today's Media Guardian:

The relocation of the BBC's research and development centre at Kingswood Warren has been postponed "for an indeterminate time", the new BBC director of future media and technology told staff late on Friday.

BECTU has also issued a statement. Rain Rabbit has some photos at Flickr taken at Kingswood on Friday.

"New Sony Walkman Plays Nice With iPlayer" according to Electric Pig.

The Sunday Herald offers a Scottish perspective on the BBC's plans for adding video to the BBC's local websites.

"Kangaroo Says Cartel Concerns 'Misconceived'" from paidContent.

And it was Blogday 2008 yesterday and much to my shame, I wasn't even aware it was happening. So thanks to Pravda for mentioning the Internet Blog here.

  • Comment number 1.

    Could we have a confirmation on how exactly this Sony MP3 player is supposed to work?

    If the iPlayer files were syncable I could see it, but that has always been blocked otherwise it would also work on newer Windows Mobile devices, but the BBC deliberately disallowed syncing in the DRM.

    Surely given the MP3 player doesn't have Kontiki running on it there's no way for it to acquire the licence?

    Or is this just another situation where the BBC are allowing access to the iPhone h.264 streams (the article suggests otherwise, but it would make a lot more sense)? Which is moderately useful I suppose but not game changing.

    This comment was removed because the moderators found it broke the house rules. Explain.
