Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

So... this chip, in addition to the running the N900's own touchscreen, can also handle 4 capacitive contacts. Would be great to use these (e.g. place a strip or ipod-like touch wheel on the battery...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

I'd point out that the HP48 calculators all used bidirectional CIR for calculator-to-calculator and calculator-to-printer comms. Not that that's a particularly compelling use-case now, as the later...

Re: Nokia N9 still/video camera overall performance unimpressive with video even worst?

Well, for casual use, you can do adequate processing of your N900 RAWs in the GIMP right on N900 :p -- but I guess you knew that. (Pros will want Adobe, but they'll also use real cameras.)

Re: PETITION to Nokia to release the full source code of the Maemo OS to this Community.

Over a third of the no votes are dual-votes; most likely, like mine, meant to mock this silly poll.

Re: Drifnet - Capturing Images on Network (N900)

Eh, not sure how wise that is, with a network full of pocket computers that can be trivially scripted to repeatedly fetch goatse for the benefit of others without viewing it themselves.

Re: N9 hits FCC???

So tonight I was at the local pub, and this scrawny guy in a black turtleneck walked in with a phone in an N900 case, but it didn't really fit right. I spiked his drink with a potent cocktail of...

Angry Re: [Announce] kernel-power v47

It's actually an issue with gstreamer0.10-av, which was depended on by the new ogg-support.

And it was fixed days ago, so no need to revert.

And all this was already covered...

Re: Nokia will announe something next week but what?

Actually, it is my understanding that Bing Maps and ovi Maps are to be merged. One can only assume this is an attempt to take the worst parts of both and get a market-leading mapping solution by way...

Re: The Ludicrous N900 Powermat Mod

Excellent! Couldn't find complete pinouts when I did my inductive charging mod, so I added a Li-ion charger to directly charge the battery -- now I can connect to the USB pads and BME can stop being...

Re: [ANNOUNCE] SomePlayer is available for Maemo 5

One would ordinarily look at the output of apt-get remove and either say N if there's unexpected stuff, or just reinstall them afterwards...

Anyway, you need to downgrade ogg-support to 1.0.6~rc1...

Re: Can you calibrate N900 accelerometer?

A bunch of tests here are "compared to $DEVICE" or "known level surface", but you know a bubble level is self-checking, and you can use the same trick to check your accelerometer...

I'd bid myself, but I always use a Mugen fat battery, so none of the stock holders work. Good luck... :)

Re: Now that Nokia has ditched MeeGo as a smartphone ecosystem, can we have our NIT's back?

Why do you want such coarse pixels? That's worse than even the 770/N800/N810 had; at a time when the competition is finally catching up in PPI, it's no time for Nokia to go two steps backwards.

Re: If we press Nokia hard for an N910 do you think we'd get it?

I imagine he likes being able to write with a stylus instead of smudging with a fat finger. (No offense, jakiman -- on a 4" screen, all fingers are fat.)

Re: How many maemo users do we have?
