New iText Office (aka the developers' shack)

A while ago, we bought a house for iText Software where we could welcome developers; both our own developers as well as guest developers (interns, students,...). For a couple of months, we kept the location a secret, but now we can finally show you our front door:

Testing Belgacom TV on Android smartphone

This morning I did a small test to see if I could watch TV on a tablet PC, now let's take a look if this also works on a smart phone:
