sh0gunHola!00:35
simula_hey00:35
slaine_gah, fecking firewall00:36
sh0gunDo you also like the greatest design of N900? Or better say: NO DESIGN style?00:36
*** diegohcg has quit IRC00:36
sh0gunBlack brick with no design, what more could we want?00:36
th0br0bye everyone.00:37
sh0gunDo you think that next meego device is going to be similar? Or it is going to be for masses, so designed?00:37
sh0gunbye00:37
rsalvetiprobably for the masses00:37
vmlemon_It meets a certain aesthetic, I guess00:37
rsalvetidon't think we'll have a real keyboard for the next device00:38
rsalvetiprobably capacitive screen and so on00:38
* vmlemon_ is one of the few who actually prefer functionality to prettiness 00:38
* arjan will miss the keyboard and resistive screen00:38
vmlemon_*prefers00:38
* simula_ likes his keyboard00:38
* mikeleib will nots00:38
mikeleibs/nots/not/00:38
sh0gunkeyboard on N900 seems small and tiny, but its usage is just great00:39
sh0gunno typos, fast typing00:39
* rsalveti don't care about prettiness00:39
rsalvetiyeah00:39
* simula_ considers his n900 a mini-netbook00:39
rsalvetione of the best keyboards we have00:39
rsalvetiI used to have a e71, and that was already a great keyboard00:39
MisterNarjan: i can understand missing a keyboard. but missing a resistive touchscreen??00:40
rsalvetiand now with the n900 I'm also very comfortable with it00:40
rsalvetiguess that resistive is easier to work with stylus00:40
sh0gunyes, but more and more people want to use the fingers00:41
rsalvetisome websites aren't so easy to work with in a capacitive screen00:41
rsalvetiyeah, true00:41

vmlemon_Heh, good luck trying to use a capacitive touch screen with gloves, I guess00:42
sh0gunand capacitive is far more sensitive, reviewers wrote so many pretty words about N900 screen, that its almost sensitive like capacitive, but it isnt00:42
sh0gunI dont use gloves00:42
* vmlemon_ doesn't either, but threw it out as a wildcard00:42
vmlemon_Although I can't really say much, given that all the handsets that I've had have had standard ITU-T keypads, and have been non-touch-enabled00:43
sh0gunanyway, I would like to ask, what about invisible shield on n900 screen? Does it make the sensitivity worse?00:43
*** boiko has quit IRC00:44
*** boiko has joined #meego00:44
Suurorcahard to say,  I just hate those in general :P00:44
sh0gunhmm00:44
simula_sh0gun, sensitivity seems to be about the same, but it's not as silky... kinda of a pain00:44
simula_the stylus sticks on the plastic a bit00:44
sh0gunah, bad00:45
*** wazd has joined #meego00:46
sh0gunbut some guys from the discussions said that with invisible shield it more sliding00:46
sh0guneven with stylus00:46
sh0gunand now I see that stylus sticks a bit on it00:46
sh0gunopposite meanings :/00:46
*** wazd has quit IRC00:46
simula_i got the one with holes in it to fit the microphone and user facing camera... i can't speak to every cover00:46
sh0gunevery has these holes, but these holes are far away from touchscreen itself, how does it affect usage of stylus?00:49

*** victorpoluceno has joined #meego01:30
aukewhen we started working on fast boot prototypes, we noticed that for some stuff, 80% of our straces were linux-PAM stuff :)01:30

lbtas I mention in my email01:31
lbtI want my device to boot in the 0.01sec it takes my finger to swipe01:32
lbtand I booted my N900 ~10 times in 3 months01:32
lbtand I'm a hacker/dev01:32
lbtwith a pre-production unit01:32
lbtnow if it really affects day to day usage01:33

GeneralAntillesauke, Tegra sucks.01:41
GeneralAntillesauke, OMAP all the way. :P01:41
trip0why does tegra suck?01:41
trip0i personally like fast graphics01:41
GeneralAntillestrip0, historically because it was just an ARM11 with a big GPU and lots of fanboys01:42
GeneralAntillesNow because it's NVIDIA and they hate open source.01:42
trip0ahh, yes, that would be an issue to take with it then :P01:42
GeneralAntillesOn the other side you have TI01:42
GeneralAntillesWhich delivers a solid piece of hardware with fantastic Linux support that is improving everyday from the company that appears to actually /get/ open source.01:43

koupsacan i leave a children (less 11year) alone with a notebook or mediaphone a tv with no protection? it's difficult to add a easy parental control? install un proxy is not easy and mobil-web is mobil; so not always on same network (sorry if my english is not clear)05:34

*** javispedro has quit IRC05:41
wiretappedkoupsa: children should be taught common sense... censorware can't make the internet "safe", whatever that means05:42
wiretappedbut it will block a lot of harmless things, and teach children that their parents don't trust them05:42
wiretappedand in many cases will teach them to circumvent it, which isn't such a bad thing :)05:42
*** andre_ has quit IRC05:42
koupsai m agree but more difficult and less random bad publicity (like spamware)05:43
wiretappedi don't understand what you're saying05:43
koupsai m agree with you. but install a little controll can protect from bad porno publicity and other that choldren can found in a (like spamware for ex)05:47
koupsain a google simple search05:47
*** wazd has quit IRC05:47
microliththat's not the distro's problem though05:47
microlithsure some controls could be put into place (usage times, whitelists) but netnanny stuff is out of scope05:48
koupsa(once more time sorry for my english , i shut up :) ) not necessary but it can be an advantage .05:49
microliththen it would probably be a 3rd party option05:49

Ambysharpneli: could you explain?11:33

sharpneliAmby: As mobiles are always personal devices the fact that he's been a smartphone user since 2005 means that N900 is not his first smartphone.11:34

leinirAmby: Well, it's an important distinction for me :)11:40
admiral0usb host and HD movies11:40
leinirA smartphone is a phone that tries to be a computer, which is not really my thing...11:40
leinirIt's fine for a lot of people, who really like the phone bit a lot, but for me it's the computer bit that's important :)11:40
admiral0now it's on the epic level ;)11:41
leinirSo, having a mobile computer, which is a computer which is able to do phone things (how well it does it is sort of unimportant for me), that's the good bit... for me :)11:41
*** jku has joined #meego11:42
Ambyleinir: I also appreciate those values, but I'm most of all an en-user. I like a decent UI, multitasking (with usable UI), unlimited web browser, phone capabilities and the integration (no freaking apps for everything). I don't mind the mobile computer term, but you can also look at it as the cleverest phone out there :)11:44
leinirIt's just that it's an important distinctions :) It's not a phone which is able to run non-phone-related things, but rather it's a computer that fits in your pockets, which just so happens to be able to make phone calls :)11:45

admiral0you don't need to know advanced features of C++ to code in Qt11:50
admiral0if you do you understand why some things just fail11:51
admiral0and don't give up11:52
admiral0the first part of learning C++ is boring11:52
*** derMicha has joined #meego11:52
villemvand the second part is painful ;-)11:53
villemvthen the fun starts11:53
villemvindeed w/ Qt you can get by without really learning c++11:53
villemvyou only need basically the "Java-level" knownledge of the language11:54
admiral0if there is something painful, then it's called C/GTK or C++/gtkmm11:54
admiral0XD11:54
villemvdon't know gtkmm, but I can appreciate the pain of C/gtk11:55
admiral0look at how many gtk projects are written in C#11:56
villemvor pygtk11:56
admiral0that means the native way is painful11:56
microlithGtkBuilder reduces the pain11:57
villemvI think the pain comes from C11:58
microlithC# is decent, but I wouldn't use it on anything but windows11:58
villemvnot really the class lib as such11:58
villemvpyqt / gtk# are quite ok I understand11:58
admiral0not on a embedded device11:59
villemv(I meant pygtk)11:59
villemvperhaps not on embedde device, but on n900 ;-)12:00
leinirIndeed - you really can get away with just not knowing anything about the nitty-gritty of c++ by using Qt :)12:00
leinirYou just need to have a basic understanding of what a pointer is, no need to have a complete grasp of pointer arithmetic (though it's good for optimization, but that can always come later) :)12:00
leinirNo need to know what sort of deep voodoo qobject_cast does, just that it works ;)12:01

thiago_homeqobject_cast is very simple: template<typename T> T *qobject_cast(QObject *ptr) { if (cast is proper) return static_cast<T *>(ptr); return 0; }12:06

admiral0he'll understand it after some coding and real interest in C++12:08
leinirthiago_home: except, of course, for figuring out that problem i've been having with Gluon's Asset class ;)12:08
villemvit may also not be ovbious why you need qobject_cast instead of dynamic_cast12:08
villemvthiago_home: speaking of c++; when you upload the tidbit about std::function "slot" (QSignalMapper), take the trouble to make a small blog post about it or something. It's good "marketing material" for C++ in general12:11
villemv(regarding recent post on qt-interest ML)12:11
thiago_homevillemv: yes, I will12:12
villemvall those closures used as signal handlers are a persistent cause for C#/python/ruby envy :-)12:12
thiago_homevillemv: it has nothing to do with std::function or QSignalMapper, though12:12
villemvgood12:12
thiago_homeit's just plain signal connections to functors12:12
villemvok, even better12:12
villemvI don't give  a damn about using those specifically. It was just something I thought of first12:13
villemvbut how do you pass the functor as argument if not using std::function?12:13
villemvsome construct that does the same thing?12:14
villemv(I guess using std::function allows avoiding the type being a template type)12:16
villemvnvm, I'll see it from the code anyway12:18
thiago_homethere's nothing special about std::function12:18
thiago_homeI probably repeated its construct in my code12:19
thiago_homebut anyway, before I publish my branch, I need to get the rest of Qt working12:19

leinirStskeeps: Exactly :)13:33
Stskeepsand services that are up and running, centered around rpm13:33

Stskeepscos that's not apperarant, from my pov, the intel developers seem to have same position ;)13:37
HukkaYeah, the TSG is the least filled on that page :/13:37
Stskeepsit isn't obvious if the Head aMeeGos are part of TSG13:38
HukkaI wonder if it's because the corps are still negotiating on the balance13:38
Stskeepsthat isn't clear either13:38
*** Terje1 has joined #meego13:38
Stskeepsand how many nokians will be in the game too13:38
HukkaHopefully in the long run the TSG will rise from the ranks of the community13:38
HukkaBut right now, there isn't a way for that13:38
HukkaHow does the Foundation work anyway? Who decides on the projects?13:39
Stskeepsthere's a governance page13:39
Stskeepswhich explains a bit, but it talks about technical merit..13:39
Stskeepswhich has no meaning in a community13:39
Stskeepswell, for community people13:39
HukkaStskeeps: But it doesn't say who chooses the TSG13:40
HukkaJust that in meego, TSG is king13:40
Stskeepsyeah.. i am also keeping in mind that PR mostly put that together13:42
*** bpeel_away is now known as bpeel13:42
HukkaSo I was wondering if it's the foundation board that chooses them; Linus & co. Or does Nokia and Intel have some kind of special position13:42
HukkaAnd what that position means for possible new corporate partners, or the small, small developer people13:43
Stskeepsi think it's the dictator's that are the top13:43
Terje1Hukka, Nokia and Intel have a special position. I guess these are the questions that will be answered in time - now the structure is being set up.13:43
HukkaBecause even if Nokia and Intel never use that power, even having the power to overrule everything is a great deterrence for us OSS geeks13:44
HukkaThen again, I suppose as soon as we get the code, we can fork :)13:44
Stskeepswell, nokia also has a good feeling about messing with community, not something they do lightly :P13:44
HukkaStskeeps: Yeah, but I mean it's still not free, if the slave's master gives only nice orders13:45
HukkaAnd principles play a large role in these circles13:45
StskeepsHukka: otoh .. i kinda like the fact there's someone to draw a line13:45
Stskeepsand help push the agenda ahead13:45
HukkaWell, that's different13:45
HukkaI'd like the community to have the option of parting with Nokia and Intel, if they wish. But it doesn't need to be a very good option, of course13:46
Stskeepsif community had their way, meego would end up with emdebian based meego that only ran sanely on nokia 770 ;)13:46
Stskeepsif discussions are to be interpreted13:46
Terje1Hukka, relax. No sense in starting to start a riot just because the thing is not ready.13:47
HukkaLike in Python, everyone fed up with Guido could fork. But everyone knows that having someone to make a decision and that everyone following is better, since Guido doesn't really make horrible choices13:47
tekojoHukka I guess that is always an option in open source13:47
HukkaTerje1: Well, like I said, if we get the code with GPL or something, then that's enough13:47
StskeepsHukka: well, it's also about being participants - it gets more difficult to do something unpopular if your maintainers and backbone of your project does not agree13:47
Stskeepswhich leads to compromise, etc13:48
Terje1Hukka, MeeGo is open source.13:48
HukkaStskeeps: Well, depends if you take votes from everyone, from everyone who bothers to vote, or everyone who bothers to put some effort into it :)13:48
StskeepsHukka: we'll see about how the community gets built up, and then this discussion makes more sense :)13:49
HukkaBut I think one thing with maemo.org's whines is that they didn't have a choice. If given a choice, they would probably still take the current route. But they couldn't complain in good concience :)13:49
HukkaThat's the good thing about free software, you can always say "Make your own" and that usually shuts up the irrelevant discussions :)13:50
Stskeepsit'll be an interesting experiments to see if we can handle matters and actually produce things, yes13:50
HukkaLike the RPM vs deb. Just put everyone strongly in favour of deb to make it work. If they care, they will. If it doesn't really matter, then they will do nothing, not even continue the complaints.13:51
Terje1Considering that we have now two guys nominated to work in MeeGo community, I don't see yet too big reason to worry.13:51
HukkaSo I think that after the discussion about the alternative builds started, it's already a bit calmer13:51

Stskeepsjust indicating this was current status16:25
Stskeepswhich means there's a lot of (fun?) work to be done16:25
anaZyes16:25
Stskeepsso, the base distribution will compile towards same ARM 'target version' as fedora arm?16:27
Stskeepsat first16:27
anaZup to now I was the only one doing this work anyways, but now more folks are joining16:27
Stskeeps(like, gcc's default ARM version in f12 arm)16:27
anaZyes, then when a package builds, the meego version is used16:28
anaZand we are almost there where all packages build using meego16:28
Stskeepsoh, cool16:28
anaZremoving the dependency on fedora16:28
*** fg has joined #meego16:28
Stskeepsbecause fedora builds towards ARMv5TE and i'm curious what meego does 'normally'16:28
Stskeepsas an example, fremantle SDK compiles towards ARMv716:28
anaZnow we are building v516:29
anaZonce we have something native we could jump16:29
RST38hI hope MeeGo will compile for ARMv7 instead :)16:29

anaZwhen more ARM experts are around :)16:29

RST38hCool, because I was just gonna ask16:35
ShadowJKsoftware is more portable than some think :)16:36
anaZyep16:36
RST38hanaZ: Will Maeblin be just an upstream kernel + some Atom SoC drivers, or will it be a complete solution, i.e. will it have base applications to browse the web, read email, use im, etc?16:36
anaZactually I did not need to change anything to build some base 70 packages16:36
anaZbeside glibc, gcc and kernel16:37
anaZwhich for now I am just taking the fedora source until we merge into MeeGo main packages16:37
ShadowJKFor the multimedia stuff it helps to figure out the right compilerinvocation/incantation :)16:37
blinoanaZ: well, there were some efforts to build Moblin for ARM before, but not from Intel directly :)16:37
anaZRST38h: You MeeGo?16:38
anaZit will be everything, from kernel up to frozen bubble :)16:38
RST38h=)16:38
*** heffer has joined #meego16:38
koupsaparental control to?16:38
RST38hWho will be providing the baseline then? Intel? Nokia? No idea yet? =)16:38
anaZadding a package from any other distro is really as easy as importing it and sometimes changing a couple of build deps16:39
eeanmmeego will provide the baseline... its an organization run by intel and nokia.16:39
koupsaRST38h arm and atom if i understand16:39
JaffaRST38h: The core base is coming from Moblin, AIUI16:39
RST38hJaffa: Ah, interesting =)16:39
anaZhence this whole upstream argument is not necessary :)16:39
RST38hJaffa: So, finally no Modest? =)16:40
eeanm(but I guess the whole point is that moblin and maemo aren't much different in their stack.)16:40

RST38hJaffa: MicroB, I hope? :)16:40
ShadowJKYou know, many of the things in libosso are useful too.. lblocation..16:40
JaffaRST38h: Who knows? Nokia having a proper MeeGo device is presumably about 12-18 months away; assuming the N900 successor is coming out with Harmattan16:41
ShadowJKdunno if mobline has libosso equivalent etc :)16:41

ShadowJKHow about X's DPMS extension...16:45

blinothe MeeGo UI has been announced to be based on Qt, but no components available now?16:50
thiago_homeblino: the Maemo 6 UI is not the Maemo 5 UI16:51
thiago_homeand whatever was presented in the Summit last year was preliminary16:51
thiago_homeit's not finished16:51
thiago_homebesides, Nokia reserves the right to completely change the look-and-feel from stock MeeGo in its own devices16:51
eeanmand the maemo 6 ui probably isn't the real meego ui  :) (even though maemo 6 is now meego...)16:51
eeanmI really wish they didn't rename maemo 6, its just confusing :D16:52
thiago_homemaemo 6 is still maemo 616:52
eeanmbut marketing isn't always about clarity16:52
eeanmno its not16:52
thiago_homeany renaming is just marketing16:52
eeanmharmattan is still harmattan, maemo 6 is no more16:52
eeanmnow its meego16:52
thiago_homeright, I never refer to it as Maemo 6 anyway16:52
ab3339i dont like "meego" ... it feels like iam saying "i am going"16:53
thiago_homefor me it's always been Fremantle and Harmattan16:53
ab3339:)16:53
thiago_homeand the I-one16:53
blinothiago_home: but MeeGo is said to us Qt as UI backend, for now, everything is still clutter-based in the repos16:53
thiago_homeblino: that goes to show that MeeGo UI will also be different from Moblin UI16:53
th0br0blino: those repos are just a copy of moblin's current ones afaik16:54
eeanmwell yea, at the moment meego is just marketing :) I'm guessing the first "meego" release they talk about coming in q2 2010 is going to be just moblin, in the same way harmattan is still going to be maemo.16:54
damien_lMeego 1.0 UI for netbooks will mainly be Clutter based16:54

ScriptRipperbuild.opensuse.org18:25
eeanmwhy is that a problem18:25
ScriptRipperwhich is not meant18:25

ScriptRipperbecause Novell will not host the project18:25

eeanmwell OBS is open source so its still not a problem :)18:26

th0br0villemv: well... take a look at the blender guys ... they're doing python prototyping & converting to c afterwards. why? well, imho this way it's faster to add and test new features.18:26
ScriptRipperbut OBS also stands for the Service, and not only for the Source Code18:26
th0br0ofc, for a small project that's pretty useless but for bigger ones ...18:26

RST38hAbility to break bigger tasks into smaller tasks and plan their execution is useful though18:27
*** Terje1 has joined #meego18:30
ali1234top-down stepwise refinement doesn't mix very well with C++ because of the amount of boilerplate it requires, which you end up having to change any time the design changes. and that is why people prototype in python.18:32
RST38hWell designed program does not require too much boilerplate18:33
RST38hIf it does, you are doing something wrong18:33
ali1234C++ by its very nature requires large amount of boilerplate18:34
RST38h(usually, by designing things that had to be left out)18:34
RST38hWhat boilerplate?18:34

ali1234boilerplate in C++? every time you write a constructor, destructor, class/function declaration, or have to choose between public and private - that is boilerplate you don't need in a prototype18:36

leinirRST38h: The idea is that in a prototype, you hack everything to just check if it'd work. As such, you just write everything as public, because private is something you do to make things pretty when viewed from the outside18:38
ali1234RST38h: and then you realize you need something private to be public and have to cahnge your class definition anyway18:38
RST38hleinir: I can just as well write everything as public in C++18:38
RST38hEither way, there is no boilerplate involved18:38
*** sepultina has joined #meego18:39
ali1234RST38h: if you never ever change your class definition (because you designed your entire program before beginning to write it) then there is no benefit to prototyping18:39

RST38hIt is true that I rarely change my class definitions18:39
RST38hBut I never design the whole thing from the start :)18:39

MisterNGeneralAntilles: i guess i would have to compare myself19:36
GeneralAntillesPrecision is the key19:36

damien_lfor ARM soc, it's a matter of not enabling the PLLs driving and your 3D engine sucks no power19:37
GeneralAntillesand you don't alienate a large portion of your customer base.19:37
ebassiezjd: if it's idle it's general consensus that it should be powered down19:37

ezjdarjan: It is a little off topic now.19:37
thiago_homeGeneralAntilles: if they did, capacitive would've been here two years ago19:38
GeneralAntillesthiago_home, then why in the world would they choose to move to exclusive capacitive? :)19:38
ebassiezjd: if it doesn't, it's either a software issue (bad driver authors, no cookie for you) or an *impressively* bad hardware design19:38
thiago_homeGeneralAntilles: I'm pretty sure they believe it's superior technology19:38
ezjdarjan: My original question is whether we should assume HW Open GL support.19:38

*** sge has quit IRC21:42
timeless_mbpalthough there were also some discussions and planning21:42
leinirwind-rider: Nope :) Code is the smallest product from dev sprints - they're mainly for planning and the sort of discussions that just don't work on IRC :)21:43
leinirSure, there's coding, but that's not really the main thing :)21:43
timeless_mbpwe also did some reviews and pushing21:43
leinirYeah :)21:43
wind-riderleinir: i report bugs on a regular basis and did some feature improvement commits (for koffice and kjots), but it seems like very little compared to what the people who are there do now21:43

MikeJBCosmoHill: Unfortunately, as a corollary to Moore's Law, apps get *more* bloated by about triple every two years, which outdoes the doubling of transistors. By 2030, we will barely be able to use anything on non-Alienware computers.22:26
*** Mr_Hyde has quit IRC22:27
RST38hBy 2030 we will inject 'em with the syringe22:27
CosmoHillI'm running a proper laptop22:27
MikeJBSo although computers will get cheaper, we'll have to pay more and more to run things properly :P22:27
lcukon your lap?22:27
lcukor cheating and using it on a desk22:27
CosmoHillcheating22:27
CosmoHilli'm hot enough as it is22:28
RST38hThe cost of a usable computer has stayed more or less the same over the years22:28
* MikeJB is using laptops as advertized. Linux really only uses the fan if you run Flash.22:28
lcukdo they heat up that much?22:28
lcuki thought the new ones ran cooler22:28
RST38hYou still have to spend at least $1200 for a usable laptop22:28
CosmoHillmine is a mid 2008 philips22:28
MikeJBCosmoHill: HP? Just by running into fellow Pavillion-users, those things heat up a lot and require lots of fan useage.22:28
MikeJBOh, philips22:28
lcukRST38h, usable as in laptop for gaming?22:28
RST38hlcuk: Well, things got weird with the temperature22:28
lcukwhich i dont see the point of22:28
timelessnah, usable macbooks start at less than $1200 :)22:29
CosmoHilli was backing up my powerbook the other day and it went upto 68'C22:29
RST38hlcuk: Current crop of laptops will slow down the CPU to stay inside the thermal envelope22:29
lcuktimeless, agreed, and thinkpads are reasonable too22:29
RST38hlcuk: Usable as in laptop for office, studio, etc22:29
lcukRST38h, yeah - everything does22:29
lcukour n900s are key there22:29
CosmoHillwould you like my specs?22:29
RST38hlcuk: Well the problem is that it often slows down the cpu so much that it becomes no faster than a much older laptop22:30
lcukhow will you read things?22:30
ShadowJKthere are macbooks <$1200?22:30
lcukyeah rst22:30
*** rsalveti has joined #meego22:30
MikeJBI don't do any 3D gaming because my Intel integrated graphics card on my laptop from several years ago doesn't really handle 3D that well... but even I envy some gaming computers/laptops. I see them as "virtualization machines"... something only a nerd would even know the definition to. ;)22:30
lcuki have my thinkpad locked to 600 or 800mhz22:30
CosmoHillmy friend;s flatmate has killed THREE macbooks in a YEAR22:30
timelessi question "usable" wrt thinkpad input methods22:30
RST38hlcuk: My poor R500 slows down to almost the netbook performance (bu lasts 6+ hours)22:30
lcukMikeJB, the older cards surely handled 3d fine, it was when they moved over to pixel shaders etc22:30
timelessimpressive, how?22:30
RST38hShadowJK: macbook is not a computer, it is an object of lust22:31
b-man17lol22:31
lcuktimeless, yeah im happy with kb and plugin mouse tho22:31
MikeJBlcuk: I guess it might be able to handle 3D fine when the card came out, but it definitely doesn't handle today's 3D without lag or settings turned off.22:31
lcuki know the macs give a better kb22:31
lcukbut this is certainly happily usabl22:31
MikeJBI have a feeling a non-Intel might have stood up to time a little more.22:31
MikeJBI mean, I love Intel cpus, but this graphics card just isn't good.22:31
RST38hlcuk: Apple BT keyboard still does not work with Maemo5 though (22:31
lcukMikeJB, 3d to me involves polygons and textures22:31
MikeJBI couldn't imagine myself using a non-Intel cpu on a desktop or laptop22:31

lcukwell i have the hardware22:33
RST38hlcuk: what for?22:33
* CosmoHill blinks22:33
MikeJBCosmoHill: student discounts are $100 tops unless you're talking very high end. At the top they double that to about $200.22:33

MikeJBI hate custom GUIs to various open OSes.22:42

mukiexMikeJB: http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/16/lg-gw990-to-be-among-first-meego-phones/22:42
CosmoHillit would be nice to have one GUI so you could go from nokia to LG to sony and always know your way about22:43

CosmoHillit would be nice but you they want to be different22:44
microlithyup22:44
MikeJBmukiex: Engadget! I tried to follow that site on RSS, but they release about 20 articles a day. It's almost impossible to keep up with it. It's like every single phone, tablet, computer, etc., ever announced is on that site.22:44
