The Apple Watch appears to be violating a patent from a Swiss watchmaker called Ventura Watches. Patent 2002CH-1962 registered in 2002. Ventura calls it Easyskroll (TM) and it is used to configure the watch similar to how apple uses the Crown.

I would like to propose creating an open source watchface maker (android and web) and a standard for those faces. Similar to facer or watchmaker but open source so we can get the most out of it and not get vendor locked especially since facer has now decided to encrypt its watchfaces.

Thoughts? Feedback?

I expect the eventual answer would be for Google to do something like this themselves and bake it into the Wear platform. At that point, Google might take the tactic that everything is free and open or they might have a payment interface.

Cool
 
This week, an ambitious rebuild and enhancement of Commodore's never-released C65[1].  A few prototypes of this machine[2] have survived - it has a 4510 CPU which incorporates a 65CE02 core[3], running at 3.5MHz and a VIC-III graphics chip offering high(er) resolution graphics. The first surprise with the rebuild is a core running at 48MHz.  Both the original and this rebuild by +Paul Gardner-Stephen offer a C64-compatible mode, and a native mode with support for large amounts of banked RAM.

Most recently, Paul has noted[4] an idea to provide for 32-bit pointers in zero page, making for a flat memory model. As all opcodes are assigned, he's looking at schemes which use NOP, SED and CLD as prefixes, modifying the next instruction.  As the CE02 implements most single-byte opcodes in a single cycle, and can't interrupt after such a single-cycle operation, the prefix can't be separated from the instruction by an interrupt.

Another idea in the 65GS02 is to have an 8-byte-wide path to memory, allowing for pairs of bytes to be read or written in a single cycle, and for an instruction with its operands to be read in one cycle.

There's also a special handling of accesses to the VIC register, so the CPU acts in RMW operations more like an NMOS 6502, for improved compatibility.

It's worth noting that the 65CE02 not only runs some opcodes a cycle or two faster than the 6502, but also has a z register, a relocatable zero page, and a 16bit stack pointer, either flat memory or relocated single page. For more, see
http://www.zimmers.net/cbmpics/cbm/c65/c65manual.txt

The C65GS project incorporates an even-more-improved VIC-IV, with better video resolutions and better sprites.  There's some juggling for performance, because on-FPGA RAM is fast but not especially plentiful, and off-chip RAM is slower but large. (Present target is a Digilent Nexys4 board - $320 or half price to students - with 16Mbyte of RAM and lots of useful peripherals on board.)

For more info, see the blog, the github repo and the mailing list for the project:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/c65gs-development
And also there are more videos:

Hot news on the list this week: Commodore's 4510/65CE02 may have a bug in decimal mode - investigations are proceeding.  We've seen many emulators fall at this hurdle.  For more on the CE02, see Michael Steil's notes at

No longer the gem it used to be. Since the renovation Metropol 1 has a noticeable reverb/hall effect in it because there is no longer a carpet under the seating (and probably other reasons). Metropol 2 is unbearable. It is like sticking your head into a barrel with a TV in it. The seats are very wide but short and not comfortable for taller people. The picture in both is very good however the 3D in theater 1 is quite dark. The theater desperately needs sound proofing work done but I guess some people like the hall effect.

Theaters A and B probably have the best Picture and Sound you will find in Zürich. The walls and ceiling are properly sound proofed to make it a decent sound experience unlike some other theaters in Zürich. The Sweets pot for sound in theaters A and B is around row 10 in the center. The picture is bright and crisp however I have not seen a 3D movie in theater A or B so this may not be the case when viewing a 3D movie. Seats are very good and even a tall person will find them comfortable.
