Re: [Announce] Pebble Watch Connector daemon

I've been having a lot of fun trying to port Rockwork back over to Sailfish. The daemon's running, and connecting to the pebble (v3 firmware). Music/volume control works, and notifications, which...

Re: [Announce] Pebble Watch Connector daemon

A more appropriate question would be: what went wrong in FOSS that everyone starts with forking, renaming the project, wrapping behind their doors, refactoring, rewriting, and only then offering to...

Re: Canonical to demo Ubuntu Touch on Sony, OnePlus and Fairphone

Sadly yes. The mobile/tablet landscape is not much different from the early 2000's who realised they had a use for a computer and that was what they wanted to do.

A big part of the reason why PC...

Re: What's the best Handheld gnu/linux machine for 2016?

XD might release a handheld with keyboard though. They are currently investigating and asking for input from users. I still prefer Pyra because of the great customer support from Micheal and the...

Re: What's the best Handheld gnu/linux machine for 2016?

I have Linux Deploy on my (rooted) tablet and have debian installed on it. There are 3 choices for display:

VNC
X Window System
Frame Buffer

I've only really used the VNC option (which means...

I think the closest modern device to N900 is BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition with Android.

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

Speak for yourself. Perhaps it's a knack you develop but I've been known to switch off from others for hours on trains. Some of my best work has been coding on long train journeys, especially if...

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

There are plenty of us that can problem solve at a high level under many different conditions, sometimes in the form of daydreaming. It's core to our person. You don't sound like one of those.

what if that "serious work" is actually more entertaining than reading a book?

i am not saying everyone should love what they work on, nor that I do. but if they do, why the artificial barriers?

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

Why? Maybe you'd prefer I'd just waste an hour or two per day doing nothing instead?

There's people out there who actually enjoy what they do for work.

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

It would be weird to use my 13" laptop when I'm holding on onboard a tram.

Joke aside, it would be nice to have a device in the 6-7" form factor that I could use for on-the-go productivity....

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

I want it. I like the idea of working at my desktop, then disconnecting a pocketable mobile device from it and continuing my work as I go.

The concept of a mobile device that works differently...

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

Note that this was, in fact, part of so-called Zen of Palm

Maybe it's actually on topic to quote parts of it: http://www.cs.uml.edu/~fredm/courses/91.308-fall05/palm/zenofpalm.pdf

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

I hate that article. It entirely forgets PalmOS. This (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palm_VIIx) was PalmOS on the year 2000, a whopping 2 years before the Hiptop. The blackberry pager they quote is...

Re: First thoughts about the (pre) Sailfish OS 2.0

Please note that IMHO, in the absence of valid reasons for going closed source, the default should be free software. In this day and age, I'm just no longer entertaining the opposite point of view.
