Re: WhoGo Maps

There have been a number of occasions when I was not navigating to any specific place, just a general area "somewhere around the centre".

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Indeed. Can I run [an application of my choice that is vital for me] on OS A? No, I can't. Can I run it on OS B? Yes, I can. Conclusion, I don't care what's under the bonnet. OS A is rubbish, OS B is...

Yes, they do.

But I think it could be even simpler than that. If you type in a single entry (for example "Frankfurt am Main", to give an example of a single entry that is not a single word),...

In addition to what sulu said, one's definition of "quality" may differ. By most people's definitions, quality is about stability, reliability, ability to perform desired tasks, even aesthetics. "I...

Re: N900 Problem: SIM Card Not Recognized

Have you tried a downgrade? I do not believe it is a software issue but you clearly do, so if you are willing to flash again and again, why not flashing 1.2 to verify?

For what it's worth, I...

A funny observation. As mentioned earlier (https://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1543472#post1543472), I had some surprising routing results. So I tried it again, to route me to Edinburgh. It's not...

Re: Sailfish Android version update

Granted, I am not the greatest salesman on earth. That's why I am not one in my daytime job. But it's not just me, Jolla itself markets Android support as the main selling point. "Hey, we have this...

Glad to be of service :p



That depends on what you consider "success". It would certainly remain a niche product. Not that it is exactly mainstream now. It would limit the clientelle to...

Re: Sailfish Android version update

That's what I've been saying for at least four years. Android support literally killed Sailfish. Jolla itself as much as markets the OS as not much more than a shell for Android.

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Could it be because they make hardware to an already existing OS made by someone else? Whereas Jolla tries the opposite? It does not explain Fairphone, though.

Oh dear. It seems I may have offended a sentiment or two. But then, I did not like Interstellar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstellar_(film)) either, despite glowing reviews and endorsements ;)

Re: Rostelecom investment in Jolla

No, thanks. The first book was good, but it was written as a one-off, not the first in a series. I would only be disappointed.

The film was OK-ish, or would have been if I had seen it in 1985....

Four+ books? I'm totally behind, I've only read the one :) Good one it was too. The film they made out of it was a complete rubbish. Just like Space Odyssey.
