Do you still use n8x0 in 2015 ? How ?

Hi
I've found a battery for my n810 ... so I pulled it out of the box ... and wondering how could I use it ? as a mp3 player for my car should be ok , a gps recorder too ... xmpp client is ok ( using jabber.org not gmail ) ...

Tried mobile twitter website with browser , it's not that usable ...


But maybe there are other hacks to use with it ? like a personal hotspot ...

map, skype, gizmo is just obsolete ... but terminal and sshclient + screen + irc may be still useful

I have serious doubt about pdf viewer ...

Do you know a decent html5 browser for this beast of should it stay as a portable vt100 device ?

Later

...A great deal can be done on and with them ...still...
there are a couple of pdf viewers that work fine.
skype may be obsolete ...but I still use it on my n8x0's...works fine for me. Not sure if gtalk is still working ..haven't used it in a yr-ish now...but it was working back then.
...they are pretty darn cheap now nokiabot...grab one and mess with it.
I think they are worth the effort.
So far...these guys think so too..see what the future brings...

As far as what doesn't work anymore,
or properly anymore,
or does work well or middling,
or even possibly "could" work...
depends on whether you are still running stock diablo...
much of that is or may be dependent on what you have done to "beef-up" your diablo or your alternate os you are running or the chroot you run and what programs you then (may or can) utilize.

I'm not saying that the devices are a limitless well of possibilities ...able to do it all...but there most certainly is more that can still be accomplished with them... than many think.

just having ssh server and/or client, xmpp, terminal multiplexers, compilers, editors, interpreters, pdf viewer, media player, skype (no way! that's nonfree software.), and other goodies in extras/extras-devel is just great
plus, the N8x0 could be used as gorgeous fun and (fun)developing environments, and the upstreaming of drivers and kernel is great news

(if you really need twitter you could just install perl and use ttytter, http://www.floodgap.com/software/ttytter/)

Franky, I just use it to read my rss feed (with inoreader) in the 10 minutes pause after dinner. And it's bad (s.....l.....o......w) even for that.

Wow ...I've never had it that bad ...
there are much faster rss readers you could use...
hell even stock works decently.
Why use inoreader? any particular reason or function or appearance ?
I was under the impression it was available as an android and iphone app only...
hell there isn't even a mention of our devices in their help files, forum, or members sections...
hmm...what ...is it somehow available to utilize through google?
Or do you have Nitdroid on your n8x0 and "macgyvered" inoreader to work?

I think if a prog meant for a different platform works ...even terribly... on stock chinook or diablo maemo with or without tweaking then that is bloody impressive.

But yeah on the n8x0...I'd use any of a 1/2 dozen others that work better, faster and are actually meant to run on the n8x0 ...than inoreader

Yep, I still use mine! For me it's mostly just a portable SSH client - I have a Nexus 4 running Sailfish, but nothing beats a nice hardware keyboard for working in the shell.

It's also got a decent UPnP media controller, which is something that's sorely lacking almost everywhere.

As for slow rss-ing, I use the stock rss feeder but I run the feeds through fivefilters and other full-text parser sites. That way, you get the complete article, no need for browsing, good news when you're stepping onto the airplane.

elaborate if you would jake in a separate thread in os2008 subforum ...
1- so it doesn't get lost in the hurley-burley of a generalized thread.
2- I wouldn't mind seeing how and what you use...
3- and it would be a great rss micro-tutorial on best techniques of optifying the stock feedreader for new and old members....
If you don't mind of course...
