I'm a long-time Dropbox user, but I recently read about (http://www.androidcentral.com/copy-ups-its-free-storage-offering-15gb-introduces-fair-storage) a new service that's offering 15 GB for it's...

Three things that I didn't think I'd use...

I bought my N900 mainly as a replacement for my aging N810. The N810 was wonderful at first, but as the web evolved over the years, the N810 wasn't able to keep up with the new Javascript-heavy sites...

Re: Qik - CAMERA LIGHT?

I don't know anything about Qik, but perhaps you could just turn on the Flashlight applet while Qik is running?

Re: map loader on n900 itself?

I would also like to see this. Probably wouldn't be too hard to code either. If there's someone with a bit of time who wants to learn Python and the N900 development process, this would be a good app...

Re: cannot ssh into n800 from another pc

I'm glad I found this thread. It gave me the hint I needed to SSH in. For anyone else who has this problem in future, the command I needed to SSH in is:
ssh -p 22 root@192.168.1.102

Re: Alternative Energy Sources for N900 (for when you need that extra power)

I've experimented a bit more with the YoGen and I have good news. I was able to get some response from the N900 by setting the YoGen to the higher voltage setting (there's a little switch) and...

Re: Alternative Energy Sources for N900 (for when you need that extra power)

Received my Yogen device yesterday (pull-cord kinetic charger). Played with it for a few minutes and was unable to get it to charge my N900. Will experiment with it more later, but it doesn't look...

Re: A-list applications for N900 - what do you recommend?

Nobody's mentioned "Flashlight applet" so far. It is far superior to liqtorch. As far as I can tell liqtorch just makes the screen white, while the flashlight applet actually turns on the camera...

Re: N900 alternative boot video (maemo.org one)

I really like the "bright" video, but I don't want to have my N900 playing any sounds on startup, so I made a silent version with no audio track. In case anyone else wants a silent video, this...

Re: Web browser oddity with reddit.com

I also installed Midori, and it doesn't have the same rendering glitch. Perhaps I'll use it instead of the default browser. I'm also looking forward to the official release of Firefox for N900.

Re: Programming languages

There's a library for Python called PyGame that might help with game making, though I don't know if it's been ported to the N900.

Re: I want to protect my new N900 (Case Suggestions?)

That wrapsol is a pretty interesting product. Never seen anything quite like it, though I think it does look challenging to apply.

I'm not sure what to do for my N900. I think I'm leaning towards...

Re: Damaging Case

Thanks for the warning. I've been weighing the pros and cons of screen protector vs case for a while now, and I think I'm going to stay away from hard cases because of your warning.

Maybe once you...

Re: What have been your 'wow' moments with the N900 so far?

* Seeing the 3D graphics in Bounce
* Learning about the flashlight-applet (what a great hack! isn't it great having an OPEN phone?)

Re: N900 in Canada (Toronto)

Got my credit card charge from mobilecityonline. The US$689.94 was charged as CDN$750.37. Then there was $97.26 duties/taxes on top of that. So ordering from mobilecityonline ends up costing just...

Re: N900 in Canada (Toronto)

My N900 has arrived, and I also paid taxes on it. The taxes came to CDN$97.26. When the credit card charges show up, I'll post a final total price, including everything, in CDN$.

Re: N900 in Canada (Toronto)

Re: N900 in Canada (Toronto)

I ultimately have decided to go with mobilecityonline and priority ($59.95) shipping. The grand total is supposed to be $689.94, but I'll let everyone know what the final cost ends up being.
