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: 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...

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

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: Goodbye MeeGo; We hardly knew ye

That's what I thought too (N900: For techy types). But then one day I saw a teenager girl using a N900 on the bus.. she seemed utterly comfortable with doing whatever it was that she did. Keyboard...

Re: Nokia's Elop on bloomberg @11am london time today friday 11 feb 2011

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: Free Sygic for N900 users?

If the street isn't there then it's the fault of the maps, not Sygic. No nav application is better than the maps. And the maps are provided by TeleAtlas or Navteq, and they have the same content for...

Re: Does power saving mode affect WiFi speed?

100mW lets the access point see a better signal, thus it's much more likely to negotiate full speed (instead of half/quarter/one eight, as it quickly does if the signal isn't good). High speed =...

Re: WiFi settings (Transmission power and Pwr saving)

Actually, the 10mW setting wouldn't do anything good for you. The reason it's there is only for legal reasons: In some countries wi-fi at 100mW isn't allowed. But if you select 10mW it's a good...

Re: pandora OS ported to n900?

I'm sure it could be done relatively easily. But the Pandora OS has support for all the extra keys (buttons and pads and corner keys and nubs and whatnot) which the N900 doesn't have. So it'll be...

Re: Say NO! to Qt-based Maemo!

I'm fine as long as there's both GTK and Qt options. Among others. I prefer to write in C or Vala, but I see nothing wrong with hacking occasionally on C++ and Qt (got to learn it bit by bit), and...

Re: Sygic Mobile maps for Maemo [problems]

No, it's free. It's just a small updated version.


Well, I obviously slow down when I hear '200 meters'. Actually it'll warn a bit earlier when I go fast (IIRC - I used it a lot last year, not...

Yes. And? What's that got to do with not allowing copyrighted material (without permission) in repositories?

Re: On the distribution of copyrighted material

I don't see why a discussion is even necessary.
1) Emulators are fine.
2) Copyrighted material (ROMs): Only copyright holders can give you permission to use it. That's the law. So, ROMs are not...

Re: If flash memory doesnt last very long - how long will my n900?

I have used SD cards since 2004 and none of those have failed me yet. To wear one out I think that in practice you would have to write extensively to the card every day, and keep the card quite full....
