  2. Tony R October 25th, 2011 1:04 am

    What’s going on here now?

  3. Nils October 25th, 2011 1:05 am

    can someone translate that text?

  4. Ron October 25th, 2011 1:06 am

    “лайка идет! десять/ одиннадцать”

    Great news… I can’t wait!

  5. Timthing October 25th, 2011 1:07 am

    A plex version in space/the cloud?
    My russian(?) is a bit rusty…

  6. Andy Kemp October 25th, 2011 1:15 am

    According to Google it translates as:
    Laika is coming! ten eleven – nment

    Laika was the sovient space dog…

  7. Luke L October 25th, 2011 1:18 am

    Can’t wait for this!

  8. Nick October 25th, 2011 1:19 am

    Ha ha, this is nice. I’m not sure what the russian text is saying but the stamp is an old stamp from Romania (my home country) and it says “LAIKA – the first space traveller” :)

  9. Remco Storm October 25th, 2011 1:19 am

    Google Translate translates it to this:

    Laika is coming!
    ten eleven

  10. Aim24 October 25th, 2011 1:20 am

    So on the 10th of November ‘Laika’ will be released… #countdownstarted

  11. Gnaph October 25th, 2011 1:22 am

    Laika is coming!

  12. Callum October 25th, 2011 1:22 am

    Oh come now, months without posts – then riddles?

    Kill our suspense, pleaseeeeee…..

  13. richie October 25th, 2011 1:23 am

    I used google goggles to translate. Got this…

    “Laika is coming! ten / eleven”

  14. soulcore October 25th, 2011 1:25 am

    the stamp is used twice, will be returned to sender ;)
    can’t wait for it though!

  15. Behe October 25th, 2011 1:25 am

    Laika is coming!
    ten / eleven

  16. Daniel October 25th, 2011 1:26 am

    Laika is coming!
    ten eleven

  17. Sascha October 25th, 2011 1:30 am

    Maybe that helps:


  18. Bramus! October 25th, 2011 1:30 am

    @Timthing: That sputnik(?)/sojuz/laika stamp fits your guess …

  19. lau October 25th, 2011 1:32 am

    Google says:

    Husky is coming! ten / eleven

  20. lau October 25th, 2011 1:33 am

    Oh no it Says laika :D

  21. lau October 25th, 2011 1:34 am

    but лайка is a husky

  22. Turbid October 25th, 2011 1:36 am


    p.s. Will there be packages for other distributions such as Debian?

  23. Timthing October 25th, 2011 1:45 am

    @Bramus. Also take a look at the icon http://dribbble.com/shots/174714-Plex-in-Space-2

  24. Martin October 25th, 2011 2:02 am

    So, Plex with iCloud support? :D

    Wait.. what?!

  25. Svein Jarle October 25th, 2011 2:20 am

    I’m guessing this means that we won’t see a new version for another two and a half weeks?

  26. Stefan October 25th, 2011 2:21 am

    the stamp is romanian, but the message looks to be in russian…

  27. lifely October 25th, 2011 2:21 am

    So laika is coming ? I thought it was winter!

    Can’t wait

  28. Greg C October 25th, 2011 2:27 am

    Hmm, Barkley has a girlfriend?

    Blast off!

  29. An Onymous October 25th, 2011 2:31 am

    one thing though, I think идет is more “going” than “coming”. maybe even “walking” fits better. but maybe I misunderstood it.

  30. ptath October 25th, 2011 2:54 am

    “Husky coming, 10 november (october 2011?)”

  31. pv_bain October 25th, 2011 3:21 am

    Haha !

    Great announcement, Elan as a new Jobs…

    Can’t wait for the new features.

  32. Gary October 25th, 2011 4:16 am

    Oh boy…Plex…in…SPACCCCEEEEEEE

  33. DCstewieG October 25th, 2011 4:36 am

    Apparently Elan has been working on launching Barkley into space instead of coding.

    I kid, I kid :) Looking forward to….whatever!

  34. diamondsw October 25th, 2011 5:37 am

    I’d just like to see that version of the Plex icon used somewhere. The circular design with the “weathered” look is really, really slick.

  35. Gautam Desai October 25th, 2011 6:48 am

    Laika died on November 3… Plex 1.0 on 11/3?

  36. toco October 25th, 2011 8:28 am

    You renamed Barkley to Laika??? ;)

  37. sivilcrisis October 25th, 2011 9:04 am

    im excited…

  38. Cerebrum October 25th, 2011 1:23 pm

    Laika ,,,

    I hope it will be a successful surprise

  39. JackieTreehorn October 25th, 2011 1:56 pm

    Maybe Plex’s metadata will be stored in the cloud? Just a guess, cant wait to see what these guys have in store…

  40. Guy October 25th, 2011 3:19 pm

    Plex v10.1.1

  41. wootcat October 25th, 2011 5:06 pm

    I would like to see that Plex icon replace the current OS X Plex Icon. It would go so well with the Launchpad, App Store, iTunes and Safari icons.

    Speaking of which, am I the only one who thinks the Safari icon is looking really outdated? Apple needs to make the border thinner like the other circular Apple apps and clean up the compass graphic a bit.

  42. Andre October 25th, 2011 7:47 pm

    Finally :) ждем.

  43. chander October 25th, 2011 10:01 pm

    Another useless features, riddles after months without badly needed updates of the core player… Where is Plex going?

  44. uber October 25th, 2011 11:31 pm

    Sounds like Plex 10 coming in November. I’d be surprised if they had such a specific release date as November 10.

  45. Matthisk October 25th, 2011 11:49 pm

    So excited for this, started using Plex around the last update. I have been checking so often for new updates and it is finally coming :D

  46. Nic October 26th, 2011 12:22 am

    No interest in cloud services, just want a media centre that will show all my music and not insist I have to have it all tagged how last.fm wants it!

  47. Robert October 26th, 2011 12:49 am

    the translation hinted to an online service called “myPlex” which was described as:

    myPlex ties all your Plex clients and servers together, making it easy for your devices to communicate with each other and share settings and media.

  48. mabui October 26th, 2011 4:22 am

    Plex to support streaming to Russian satellites for worldwide broadcast!

  49. Guy October 26th, 2011 4:55 am

    I agree with Nic!

  50. H. Reid October 26th, 2011 10:34 am

    i love the new icon. can’t wait to see what’s in store.

    would anybody else mind if they started charging for PLEX?

  51. blabla October 26th, 2011 11:42 am

    Ok…. or something

  52. Carter October 26th, 2011 3:20 pm

    Don’t you guys think it might have to do with an earlier blog post titled “Plex v0.9.3.3 – Halfway to the stars”? In that post, elan mentions that they had been working “with Verizon on on their in-car telematics solution (Plex in the back seat, anyone?), and are working with Netgear, Cisco, and Synology in order to make sure the Plex Media Server runs well on their NAS devices and is easily available to their customers. And that’s just skimming the surface…”

    The blog post is here:

    Clearly some surprises ahead, but the whole “dog in space” theme of the postcard is clearly a tie-in to “halfway to the stars”. Connect the dots people.

  53. deloco October 26th, 2011 9:54 pm

    Interesting… It seems that something is happening. Whatever it is. Lookin’ forward to it.

  54. Carter October 27th, 2011 3:16 am

    Perhaps you people should go read an earlier blog post titled “Halfway to the Stars”. Elan gives a few hints as to where things are going in that post. Given the “space” theme of the postcard, it seems logical to connect these two blog posts together.

  55. AshTemple October 27th, 2011 5:02 am

    im guessing subtitles for all

  56. H Reid October 27th, 2011 5:17 am

    Plex v10.1.1 indeed!!!!!

  57. Fressa0815 October 27th, 2011 7:58 am

    10/11 Apple will announce the aTV 3, iTV, and an iOS and OSX Update. Everything comes bundled with Plex as the default Media Player.

  58. kurios October 27th, 2011 10:13 am

    laika…such a sad story

  59. Sebastiaan October 27th, 2011 10:18 am

    Plex will support ‘spaces’? on OS X Lion? :D
