Re: Last straw with me and continuing with Windows

Endsormeans, that's just speculation at the time being. What the article refers to the current DaaS is for enterprises and indicates nothing for private customers.

I agree that such a subscription...

Re: Last straw with me and continuing with Windows

To be fair, this article from what I've gathered is just clickbait fear mongering.

Windows DaaS model is for enterprises. And it can make a whole lot of sense there, where dozens or hundreds of...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I'm with imaginaryenemy on this rambling discussion.

Security on cell phones has so far always been a compromise between convenience and the strength of security.

And only you, for your own...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Juiceme is notorious Androidphobe, so he does not have Alien Dalvik installed. It's worth considering could Alien Dalvik be the culprit in this update.

I haven't myself noticed anything dramatic,...

Re: 2.2.0 EA / Mouhijoki

Yes. On Sony Xperia the music plays quietly while system tone is played.

I have Jolla 1 & Jolla C, but I haven't tried this update on them yet.

Re: First thoughts concerning Plasma Mobile and Ubuntu Touch on Nexus 5

I thought about that a bit why many maemonians detest SailfishOS on the basis that it has proprietary parts. Yet turn a blind eye on the fact that maemo has lots more of it.

I came to the theory...

SailfishOS has less proprietary parts than Maemo. Just saying.

Re: Sailfish Android version update

That's about to change, thanks to EU. In few years no more paper system, either dedicated hardware or mobile app.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I also often miss knowing the times someone has called and get frustrated about that grouping.

But now I realized, you can get the individual call logs from "Past communication events". I think...

Re: 2.2.0 EA / Mouhijoki

Something nice that I noticed:

Previously when listening to music with Sailfish, and an e-mail alert enters, or SMS or any system sound, the music would be muted while the sound was playing. Now...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Because of costs for the caller depending on the type of the phone number?

Or for some other reason? In Finland calling costs always the same amount whether recipient has landline, mobile, or work...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Re: First thoughts concerning Plasma Mobile and Ubuntu Touch on Nexus 5

You are mistaken. Ubuntu Touch is not any more a layer on android than Plasma is.

They both use libhybris so that they can use already existing android drivers. That's all there is to it, just...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

What's special about Sailfish to me, is that it hits pretty well the sweet spot at least for me. Some people value open source above all else. Some people that the they get things done with their...

Re: Youyota Tablet Contact

I had the same impression as you did. And that's why I backed this project. Not because I needed a tablet. I had tried Jolla tablet, and I wasn't too happy about it. Mainly because the battery...

This didn't help me regarding Android applications. They're still being aggressively killed even as there's plenty memory in either swap or caches.

So I guess something else would have to be...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I beg to differ.

Compare:

Stumbling in darkness, opening lock screen, swiping left to reach events screen. Swipe down to reach the "shortcuts". Trying to hit with trembling finger the icon to...

Hammerhead Flaslight's sources are available and it'd be trivial to modify it to be just a simple toggle.

Install Hammerhead Torchlight from Openrepos, and Bob's your uncle. Note that the version in Jolla Store doesn't work with Xperia X, you need the version from Openrepos.
