Re: Opera vs microb

I think Opera is better. But I still use microb for some stuff. How much it zooms depends on the web page. Just use the zoom button to adjust the zooming (the volume button).

Re: N900 died - Cold Flash doesn't work

It sounds like you will need a cold flash.

I had some trouble with that last year. My notes on that follow (from another thread).

But first you should get the battery charged. If it needs cold...

Re: How important is your stylus to you?

I depend on the stylus. I use a nail for simple tasks like turning on wi-fi if I'm one-handed for some reason. But that's an exception.

Slobbing fat fingers all over the screen is disgusting to...

Re: Reading an .so file..

You can however check the .so file for interesting paths used by the code.
Simply run 'strings personal-ip-address.so' and look for interesting stuff.

I just did, and found this:


So I would...

Re: Bit the bullet, got an N900... and it can't see WiFi(?!?)

The N900 works without SIM - I used mine for two weeks before I inserted a SIM at all. It works just like the N800 without SIM. So if SIM was a problem it should work by removing the SIM, which you...

Re: Secure sites no longer work

Check the time and date on your 770, date problems cause most of https/SSL errors.

Re: heavy battery usage on reboot

This is a symptom of a battery starting to get old. Its inner impedance is increasing, and the reboot sucks more current out of the battery than for normal operation. What this translates to is that...

Re: Internal GPS and accelerometer devices have disappeared

At least for accelerometer it may sometimes help to turn off the device, remove the battery for a minute or so, reinstall, restart. Worked for me a couple of times (well, that particular...

Re: How Dual Mode Works

But I wonder.. _does_ 3G eat a lot of battery? From my testing I can't really see that it does. Well, not while not in data transfer mode (i.e. not networked) anyway. If I'm just in normal phone...

Re: Intel AppUp Program is now free for MeeGo developers

I checked this out. The so-called SDK for Meego is an SDK for Windows. Utterly useless to me, of course.

Re: After Nokia/WP7, what will you buy next?

When my N900 eventually fails then I will drop back to a non-smartphone mobile phone. I have several options that I like.

For pocketable open mobile device I will use something else, e.g. like the...

Re: Goodbye Meego, goodbye Nokia

The only reason Nokia is partnering with Microsoft is because of Elop, who is a Microsoft guy.

Nobody else in their right mind would join with Microsoft on smartphones now, because Windows on...

Re: 2nd generation n900

I have only two problems with the (current) N900:

1: Battery life. Having to charge sometimes every day is _not_ good.

2: The built-in GPS. Assisted GPS is just a pain in the neck. Where I need...

Re: Using the GSM as a normal modem?

But you should still be able to go the usual GPRS/EDGE/3G/3.5G route.. just go on the network, then ssh or whatever (I use OpenVPN) to your home server. It's way faster than the old GSM/Data mode...

Re: Using the GSM as a normal modem?

A typo there, you meant 19200, not 192000.. I remember being able to run at 19200 occasionally, but yes, most of the time it was down to 9600 bps. Could still do some useful work over that link...

Re: Using the GSM as a normal modem?

It used to be possible in the past, there was a 'data' mode in GSM and you could set your phone to data mode and connect to an ordinary modem. But I believe that mode isn't available in GSM anymore...

Re: how to sustain openvpn even when changing wifi connection

I'll have to disagree. Just to clarify - when there's an OpenVPN reconnect OpenVPN is able (as it should) to keep this hidden from the application layer (which just sees a connection through a TUN...

Technically there shouldn't really be any problem. Just as the openvpn connection itself can go down and get re-established, and the only thing you would notice would be a pause in your remote...

Re: Is there any future for Skype on the n900. Do you use Skype Out?

I use Skype, SkypeChat, and SkypeOut, but I don't have any contacts with phone numbers with anything outside + digits, so I'm not bitten by the 'p' issue.
