Blue Hawk Solutions - Mac/iPad FE development
Hey guys my name is Dave owner and CEO of Blue Hawk Solutions. We are a software and website development company located in vancouver canada. Our company car has been running a carpc for about 2 years and i'm sick of the windows os constant bluescreen etc. so because we have been specializing in mac and iphone development we have decided to make a "centrafuse for the mac". We want to offer the same quality in application as the centrafuse program does for the windows users.
We would like to know how many people would be interested in this software, as the current mac carpc software isn't anywhere near the quality of centrafuse. We would be willing to do a free BETA test to the people who are interested. Also we have a good application outline but if you guys would like to suggest features please do so here.
List of must have features:
-Excellent GPS integration
-Look and feel of a high quality windows program
-Both intel and PPC support, I find that the older ppc mac mini's more favorable because of their price, power consumption, and cooling. If a viable mac front end is available, otherwise its the intel ones to run windows.
-Plug and Play support, When I plug in a flash drive or CD/DVD an option apears to play the media from it.
-XM/Sirius SAT Radio support, there is someone that has developed a USB adapter to control a sirusConnect radio, and while the drivers is available for Mac no software has been developed.
-Bluetooth integration, The ability to connect phones and PDA's for hands free dialing and A2DP media streaming.
-Plug-in API, Allowing users to develop plug-ins and skins.
-iPad ported version of the desktop application
BETA 1 is to include...
-iPad ported version
