Re: Just bought a Windows ce 5.0 device and thiinking of changing to linux

I fear it's slow because the processor is not very fast and it doesn't have much RAM. With that said porting Linux to it is a quite valid request, though I fear you underestimate the difficultly...

Re: [Announce] Snuggle : Geolocation using CellID and Google APIs

Yes access to the raw data dumps is one of the reasons it appealed to me, plus the wifi data. From looking quickly at opencellid I couldn't see any way of getting hold of the raw data, plus it only...

Re: N9 full Angry Birds uses NFC?

I seem to remember reading somewhere that one can unlock some extra levels using NFC, there are a fair few web pages about it, e.g.: http://mashable.com/2011/04/19/nokia-angry-birds-2/

Re: [Announce] Snuggle : Geolocation using CellID and Google APIs

Well Droid 3 is ideal-ish as it's an OMAP 4 (so the Pandaboard stuff should be reasonably close), however as it's a Motorola phone, it's probably not so easy. In addition it's not available in the UK...

Re: Brainstorm: Porting maemo to other devices instead

Well mainly as I owned one (and I chose it as I wanted GPS and an e-compass, though accessing the GPS remains WIP). The tablet you mention may well be a better bet (certainly it's higher spec, but...

If it's not some daemon you've installed and will see with ps, do you have location reporting switched on for IM?
