javispedroah, many lines reminiscent of the elopcalypse.00:13
javispedro"we can also find HP execs in parking lots and beat them with sticks until they agree to do what we want"00:13
* SpeedEvil idly wonders about a meego dev program. 00:14
* javispedro shudders at the idea that now the only alternate acceptable platform is android00:14
SpeedEvil'take this, and do anything with it! Quickly! Please!00:14
SpeedEvilLarge players exiting the market is a terrible thing.00:15
javispedroI might be crazy, but if in two years I have to choose between Android and Apple, I would choose Apple.00:15
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC00:16
SpeedEvilOn what grounds?00:16
GeneralAntillesjavispedro, me too.00:16
GeneralAntillesIt being less shit.00:16
javispedroso let's hope tomorrow the tide brings something new the same the tide today took away another platform.00:16
javispedroSpeedEvil: mostly same as GeneralAntilles; and I like Apple's arch from a designer PoV more than Android's.00:17
javispedros/designer/architect ;)00:17
GeneralAntillesAndroid can't even run smoothly on a dual-1GHz Cortex-A9 with 1GB of RAM.00:17
GeneralAntillesUsability wise it's shit, too.00:19
nid0well, hopefully in 2 years ms's offering will be a viable third choice at least00:19
javispedroIt is a clusterfsck. It is more similar to old PalmOS or RIM's stuff than a new mobile platform.00:19
GeneralAntillesnid0, good luck with that.00:19
* ShadowJK wonders if google's "own" phones run/ran it smooth00:19
GeneralAntillesShadowJK, Nexus One didn't.00:19
GeneralAntillesAndroid is just plain shityt.00:19
javispedroNokia/HP might abandon lesser-used platforms,00:20
javispedrobut microsoft does the opposite00:20
nid0I dont see the problem, their ui's infinitely nicer than android and far smoother, and if mango's any indication theyre piling the features on00:20
javispedroif WP7 ever reaches spot#1, they will say their job is done and abandon it.00:20
javispedrosee IE6, see WinMo 6.500:20
javispedroand what will happen next is that progress in the area is slowed down by a decade until the next player comes.00:20
*** Sazpaimon has joined #maemo00:21
ShadowJKso they should have called it IE6 build 5678 instead of IE9? :)00:21
DocScrutinizermeh, what's that fuss about left over platforms? Aren't we "the community", don't we do our own platform?00:21
nid0well, ie6 was job done, there was no value to them in producing the next version of a free browser that brings them no direct income and had no competition00:21
nid0whereas wp7 does and has00:21
javispedronid0: they did with wm600:21
DocScrutinizerit's actually just about vendor support for a particular OS on a particular HW00:21
javispedronid0: once they beat palm, they stopped right in the tracks.00:21
jacekowskijavispedro: which platform?00:22
*** jhb has joined #maemo00:22
javispedrojacekowski: you mean which platform left us today?
GeneralAntillesWhy would you choose WP7 over iOS?00:23
jacekowskii'm surprised that it took them so long00:23
jacekowskiGeneralAntilles: because it's not unix based00:23
jacekowskiand over years i got fed up with nix based systems more and more and mroe00:23
*** choppa has quit IRC00:23
DocScrutinizerhonestly debian FTW00:23
ShadowJKiOS is more Step...00:24
javispedrojacekowski: wince is slightly more unixy than win3200:24
javispedrofor a start, they expose devices as files and have a single filesystem tree.00:24
DocScrutinizermaybe even ubuntu00:24
ShadowJKMacOS is more NextStep than Unix based :/00:24
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo00:25
DocScrutinizerShadowJK: as if NeXTStep was no *nix00:26
jacekowskijavispedro: win32 exposes devices as files00:27
DocScrutinizerok it has a mach microkernel, and a few BSD remnants00:27
luke-jrDocScrutinizer: *nix != Unix00:27
*** TimmyT has quit IRC00:27
javispedrojacekowski: winnt, not win32.00:27
*** C-S-B has quit IRC00:27
DocScrutinizerluke-jr: GNU is Not Unix00:27
ShadowJKLots of things are files in windows, you just can't list them with 'dir' :-)00:27
luke-jrneither is NeXT00:27
javispedrowinnt also technically has a single filesystem tree. but all of win32 is based around drive letters.00:28
javispedrowhich do not exist at all in wince since they were allowed to break API.00:28
ShadowJKlet's port Plan9 to N90000:28
* javispedro boots the HURD in a VM00:29
*** hannesw__ has quit IRC00:29
* javispedro slightly laughs00:29
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: and then run DukeNukem4ever on it00:29
javispedroelopcalypse ----> "but Meego is NOT yet dead there's still Intel!"00:30
javispedroweboscalypse --> "but webOS is NOT yet dead there's still $RANDOM_HOPEFULLY_FUTURE_LICENSEE"00:30
nid0maybe grid os will be the next big thing00:31
jacekowskijavispedro: maybe it's because linux on phone is a disaster00:31
DocScrutinizerI have to reinterate it: seems this week started with a Friday and was all Fridays since.00:31
javispedrojacekowski: ask those Google guys00:31
jacekowskiand android only succeded because it was hiding that fact00:31
javispedrojacekowski: they seem to be doing rather well seemingly.00:31
* DocScrutinizer just wonders if that'S just him or actually the mood and topics in this chan00:31
javispedrojacekowski: so you are saying gnu glibc on a phone is a disaster?00:31
jacekowskijavispedro: but android isn't really your typical linux00:31
javispedrowhat's exactly the disaster there?00:32
infobotjavispedro meant: what's exactly the disaster then?00:32
jacekowskiask normal users00:32
jacekowskisomehow palm pre didn't sell as good as android phones00:32
ShadowJKI remember cursing at how slow gtk was drawing xchat on my PC, and shaking my head at those lunatics that wanted to run linux on phones. Then I got the N810 with Linuc+GTK, and it was about 5 times more responsive than my Symbian cellphone :-)00:32
nid0well, the palm pre had the distinct disadvantage that the actual phone was shit00:33
DocScrutinizerjacekowski: android is definitely NOT linux, esp wrt to embedded-relating properties00:33
jacekowskiShadowJK: i had ngage00:33
jacekowskiShadowJK: and it was bloody fast00:33
jacekowskiShadowJK: and i had games for it00:33
jacekowskiand everything00:33
javispedroand it didn't sell.00:34
jacekowskii worked for 2 months at mcdonalds to buy it00:34
*** FireFly|n900 has joined #maemo00:34

* Sicelo still has ngage :P00:34
javispedroit was probably cheaper than any of the phones that are sold today?00:34
*** hannesw__ has joined #maemo00:35
nid0looks also didnt help it.00:35
javispedroI remember once considering getting it for 250€00:35
javispedroso it was _way_ cheaper.00:35
DocScrutinizerpalm pre has an all shitty formfactor00:35
DocScrutinizertoo large, too small screen and too tiny kbd00:35
javispedrostill better than N9's ;)00:36
jacekowskii'll buy WP7 version of N900:36
javispedroI liked Pre3's form f better than N9's. But for me N810 was best.00:36
* ShadowJK mostly wants something that he can do stuff with easily, and can access email00:37
javispedrojacekowski: hope you already know C#00:37
ShadowJKN900 was first phone that could do that :P00:37
DocScrutinizerI think all the old nerds agreed on that from N900's birth on00:37
nid0I still have my e90 for that <300:37
jacekowskijavispedro: i do00:37
jacekowskijavispedro: better than jav00:37
ShadowJKthough "do stuff" was marginally possible on symbian too after it got python00:37
DocScrutinizer...that N900 was even better if it had kept N810's formfactor00:37
ShadowJKI thought Win7M was silverlight00:38
javispedro"do stuff" was technically possible even on old PalmOS.00:38
javispedrohow painless it is, that's another story.00:38
*** GunArm has quit IRC00:38
DocScrutinizerPalmOS was toxic architecture00:39
ShadowJKWell, the only way to do streaming audio was to dowmload a chunk, save as mp3, play back mp3 while downloading next file. There were gaps :P00:39
javispedroit was 1990's.00:39
javispedrosame way android is 2000's.00:39
javispedrowill all the java and memory conserving crap.00:40
javispedro(and it still does it rather badly)00:40
ShadowJKthen nokia made some new secret api to actually stream audio, and a net radio app, which only worked on a small subset of symbian, hooray :/00:40
javispedrothe only way to make background network activity on the PalmOS was to fake an audio stream so that your app was periodically called for new audio, so ;)00:41
* ShadowJK can't wait to see how smoothly excel in silverlight runs ;D00:43
javispedroheh, ari posted already00:43

javispedroit's fun that the world leading PC manufacturer tried to get rid of its PC business because of "low profits".00:48
* javispedro now thinks the world is rather doomed.00:48
*** geaaru_ has joined #maemo00:48
*** jhb has joined #maemo00:48
jacekowskiwell, all home electronics is cheap00:48
jacekowskiso profit margins are now much lower00:48
jacekowskibut i don't understand why would you get rid of something that makes you profit00:48
ShadowJKI have a HP laptop someone asked me to fix. It's shaped like a brick, weighs like a brick, has the aesthetics of a brick. It seems full of random proprietary extension ports nobody will/would ever use :-)00:50
javispedrojacekowski: downward trend.00:50
* DocScrutinizer sets up an autokicker on regex "!/"00:50
ShadowJKno wonder they arent making money00:50
*** geaaru has quit IRC00:50
javispedroShadowJK: brick=cheap. sell many=profit. but they aren't making money for some reason.00:50
nid0personally, the only HP kit I have is a fairly awesome all-in-one printer that cost less to buy new than the replacement 4 ink cartridges it takes00:50
GeneralAntillesDocScrutinizer, hey, I've got seniority.00:50
*** wazd has quit IRC00:51
DocScrutinizerfree thoughts! twitter is crap!00:51
fizzieThe N-Gage, when I got one, was the absolutely cheapest thing that ran Symbian they had. I think it was ~130 eur, and came bundled with some Tony Hawk game + an RC helicopter. But admittedly this was quite late, after it had turned out to be the flop.00:51
ShadowJKjavispedro, custom electronics is probably more expensive than having some idiot make a plastic case for it ;-)00:51
DocScrutinizerI could ask tim riker to teach infobot to auto-resolve URLs and spit out the content00:52
DocScrutinizersimilar to ~wiki00:52
jacekowskifizzie: that was QD you're talking about00:52
fizzieNo, it wasn't.00:52
ShadowJKthe "NGAGE App" ran quite smoothly on my otherwise slughish symbian, but it was focus stealing captive fullscreen :/00:52
jacekowskiQD had rc helicopter bundled00:53
infobotwell, twitter is a popular microblogging site00:53
* infobot starts crying and hides from docscrutinizer in the darkest corner of the room. :(00:53
fizziejacekowski: Well, I can quite easily tell the original and the QD apart, and what I have here isn't QD. But the seller ( kept bundling those 'copters with just about everything.00:53
ShadowJKI remember considering ngage too, but decided that typing stuff on its keyboard would be too slow :/00:55
*** wazd has joined #maemo00:55
DocScrutinizermicroblogging - nice. Actually usually the URL is longer than the relevant info bits contained in the 500kB download when you click on it00:55
javispedroNGage has been the only Symbian phone I've _EVER_ considered.00:55
javispedrowhich is why I'm quite sure it was less than 250€00:55
javispedroquite sure it was 200€ but I'll toss in the 50€ for safety margin.00:55
*** rcg has quit IRC00:56
DocScrutinizerand I'd even bet twitter friggin data junk you download with every click is infested by malware00:57
* ShadowJK bought a Siemens CF-62 for 250. It had 600-ish K ram for java2 ME :D the cpu was extremely slow, and like it succumbed to siemens quality issue death pretty fast :/00:57
javispedroI also had siemens00:57
javispedrooh, I think their mobile division died too?00:58
*** lardman has quit IRC00:58
javispedroI should add it to the list.00:58
javispedroa CX75 was the last one I had iirc.00:58

Primeshello I have a nokia N900 running maemo 5 PR1.3. My phone is not locked to a network. I'd like to know how to do manual network selection. I heard it was under settings > manual network selection but I don't see that01:01
DocScrutinizerand guess what, I used same battery all those years01:01
* javispedro never bought Nokia before the N810 =)01:01
PrimesI have an O2 sim from UK, and when visiting france it selected roaming onto orange-france01:01
DocScrutinizerand I bet the 6210 had bme as well X-P01:01
*** Sazpaimon has joined #maemo01:01
javispedroPrimes: Settings -> Phone01:02
ShadowJKPrimes, settings - phone01:02
nid0settings > phone > network selection01:02
Primesstill had a nokia 8310 since 9 years with original battery01:02
DocScrutinizerallow data roaming, allow roaming01:02
DocScrutinizeror better: disallow01:03
nid0i've still got my like 13 year old 3210 somewhere01:03
DocScrutinizeror select "manual network selection"01:03
* javispedro cries01:03
PrimesAh ok, thanks, after scrolling down, I found those settings. Great01:03
*** wazd has quit IRC01:03
javispedrowebOS had way larger marketshare than Meego, and a CEO that wasn't a Microsoft trojan horse, and despite that got the axe.01:03
ShadowJKmy 3210 underclocked itself. Then I borrowed its battery for my discman, and the battery got a bit angry :|01:03

DocScrutinizerI never really looked into it, so: webos ever been meant to be anything beyond sth like err.. e.g. bada?01:07
*** jhb has quit IRC01:08
*** jhb has joined #maemo01:08
javispedrowhy do you think bada is not mean to be something beyond $INSERT_RANDOM_OTHER_PLATFORM?01:09
*** eijk has quit IRC01:09
Primestrojan or not, some decisions coming out of nokia seem crazy. eg call yourself a burning platform, say your main OS is dead. Announce totally new product before availability, announce without ship for a year. Go with an OS that your rivals have not been able to succeed with. Make a new phone and discourage selling it in some countries.01:09
DocScrutinizerbada, according to raster, is a hickup, and according to what I read about it is a closed proprietary OS with a free SDK01:10
PrimesAnd that's without mentioning change around all the top jobs, lose some best people and sack your developers, not to mention alienate the open source community01:10

* DocScrutinizer just had a daydream: Nokia grows a brain and restarts another production run of N900i, just with better SoC/POP (and some very clever rework for a thruhole USB)01:12
nid0and, dear god, a decent keyboard01:12
DocScrutinizerno way01:12
Primeshow about a nokia n950 with NFC, with replaceable battery, with a full size sim slot, into retail01:13
DocScrutinizerthe whole point being they already got *everything* for that enterprise, already done, to the FCC even01:13
Primesif you want developers to write NFC apps, giving them a dev phone without NFC ..... doing something wrong01:13
PrimesUSB2GO ie host and slave modes will also help01:14
lupine_85why do people have this obsession with NFC?01:14
lupine_85it's bad and wrong and evil01:14
DocScrutinizerPrimes: N950 HAS "full size" SIM01:14
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo01:14
nid0whats the problem with nfc01:14
*** jhb has joined #maemo01:14
PrimesN9 has cut down I guess I made assumption they were same01:14
DocScrutinizerPrimes: or did you talk about credit card sized SIM?01:14
lupine_85it's neither as useful as bluetooth nor as simple as RFID01:14
lupine_85both of which are pretty flawed systems themselves01:15
PrimesUsually you get a credit card size and have to pop it out for a standard size sim. That's useful to swap between phones, as hackers will do01:15
*** c2p has joined #maemo01:15
Primesonce you cut them, it's less useful expect to swap with an iphone01:15
SpeedEvilTop tip.01:15
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC01:16
SpeedEvilIf you have a credit-card with a micro-SIM in, you can - with a chisel - make it into a standard SIM.01:16
lupine_85well, it's just form factor01:16
DocScrutinizerNEVER insert microsim with adapter to N950?01:16
Primesboth bluetooth and rfid had security issues. But the payments industry seems to be adopting NFC. I want to be able to pay stuff using my smartphone01:16
lupine_85i'm sure you can get µsim->sim adapters01:16
SpeedEvilAnd yes - that too01:16
lupine_85much like microsd->sd adapters01:16
SpeedEvilnever ever use a microsim adaptor in n95001:16
PrimesI don't have a N950 to try it with01:16
lupine_85I wouldn't know, not having one :)01:16
lupine_85any particular reason?01:16
SpeedEvilWorks fine for n900 though.01:16
SpeedEvillupine_85: It breaks the SIM slot.01:17
*** kthomas_vh has joined #maemo01:17
lupine_85engineering fail01:17
SpeedEvilAs the contacts get caught in the gap01:17
Primesreally? is that all adaptors or just some??01:17
SpeedEvilAt least one01:17
DocScrutinizerlupine_85: not really01:17
lupine_85still, it was a development phone01:17
SpeedEvilSpecification fail.01:17
SpeedEvilNot so much engineering01:17
lupine_85can't expect too much of it01:17
Primesmaybe it's designed that way so you're holding it wrong01:17
*** zap has quit IRC01:17
*** thomastp has joined #maemo01:18
nid0I dont understand why people pay for these adaptors, are places other than the uk that stingy with sims that you cant walk into your nearest network's shop and get one the right size?01:18
PrimesIdeally I'd like a phone with 2 sim slots like some asian ones01:18
DocScrutinizernid0: you can, but not with same contract usually01:18
SpeedEvilEven some nokia asian ones now01:18
*** ErwinJunge has quit IRC01:18
nid0lame networks01:18
*** OkropNick has quit IRC01:19
Primesbut it's not quick to port a nice old 2G number from my business card onto their new "giveaway" sims01:19
DocScrutinizernid0: prepaid aka PAYG never actually come as twin SIM01:19
javispedroDocScrutinizer: closed OS with free SDK: isn't that the definition of Maemo and Meego also ;)01:19
DocScrutinizerso your PAYG number is locked to one SIM formfactor01:20
Primesbut 2 sims ie 2 networks have advantageous tariff eg international01:20
DocScrutinizeryou can swap formfactor and keep number, but it costs and is irreversible01:20
PrimesUsing one of those choppers you can make a full sim into a mini one. It should just work. But you can't easily glue the excess back on to get a big one again01:20
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: not exactly01:21
javispedromaybe now that webos is dead it's time to make something public01:21
DocScrutinizerthough for meego HARM I'd agree01:21
*** Chiku01 has joined #maemo01:21
Primeswhen did webos died?01:21
javispedroI run webOS on my N900 =)01:21
PrimesN900 can run maemo, meego, kubuntu, debian, windows95, nitdroid.....01:22
nid0well, its gone stagnant. not many people yet seem to have picked up on the fact that hp are evidently wanting to transition to software and services, and webos is software.01:22
nid0they just need an interested hardware vendor to use it01:22
DocScrutinizernid0: my number never changed since 1999, and I still have that SIM that for sure is of the crackable generation - so IF I really bothered I probably could clone _that_one_01:23
*** KMFDM has quit IRC01:23
*** nmjnb has quit IRC01:23
DocScrutinizernid0: you see why I'd never swap it for a microsim01:24
*** sq-one has quit IRC01:24
PrimesI have the old crackable 2G sim with a nice number. I don't think you can clone it into a 3G sim, too different01:24
*** Chiku|dc has quit IRC01:24
DocScrutinizermeh, the SIM itself is all the same for 3G01:24
Primesyes for 3G (except some minor mem capacity difference) but 2G changed into 3G different01:25
DocScrutinizerit actually never really changed (except for power supply voltage)01:25
Primesthat's what I thought voltage change. so I didn't want to bust my 3G n900 by inserting a 2G sim which could draw too much current01:26
DocScrutinizernah, no problem01:26
*** hannesw__ has quit IRC01:26
javispedroa nokia care guy once told me the effect an older sim has on battery is noticeable01:26
DocScrutinizerit's a few mA01:27
DocScrutinizerwhich makes a difference like 250 vs 100h standby maybe01:27
DocScrutinizermaybe less01:28
DocScrutinizerbut no hw will break on old SIM01:28
DocScrutinizernot even the SIM :-)01:28
DocScrutinizernot even new SIM in old 3.3V phones01:28
Primesyeah new phones won't break old sim. But I'm not confident of the opposite.01:28
DocScrutinizerit's just all phones support the old standard still, and the SIMs also work on old standard still01:29
*** mitsutaka has joined #maemo01:30
DocScrutinizerPrimes: afaik all SIM/phone start up at 3V3, then *may* negotiate lower voltage01:30
*** kthomas has joined #maemo01:30
SpeedEvilUmm. Weren't _VERY_ old SIMs 5v?01:30
DocScrutinizermaybe, I don't actually recall01:30
SpeedEvilBut not with something even as new as 199901:31
PrimesI didn't read all the gsm specs. As speedevil says some maybe were originally higher. I don't know how old my 2G sim is in that timescale, perhaps 200301:31
SpeedEvilBut a 5v SIM simply just won't work01:31
DocScrutinizerbah, no issues with those "youngsters"01:32
SpeedEvilno damage on either side will occu01:32
*** lcukn900 has quit IRC01:32
DocScrutinizeron Freerunner we had issues with some 3G cards, but that was due to modem firmware borked on clock freq negotiation with those particular types iirc01:33
*** kthomas_vh has quit IRC01:33
DocScrutinizerand it wasn't exactly related to "3G"01:33
DocScrutinizermore to the chip type in the card01:33
DocScrutinizerI think this was the major fix with moko9 fw01:34
* javispedro cries some more... waaaaaaaaaaah01:34
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: wazzup?01:34
* javispedro looks at the n900 and n950 and REALLY hopes they last now.01:34
Primesright well I like 3G so I'll be trying to get the network to port my 2G number onto this 3G or a replacement 3G card. The guy in their store seemed to think it was complex either a 3 or 2 step process depending if I was signing up to contract or not01:35
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: you know 950 never will even reach maturity01:35
Primesit is more mature than a n900 I say01:35
DocScrutinizerno way01:35
DocScrutinizerand the OS will *never* get fully adapted to 950, it's a N9 OS01:36
javispedroif there's not a new fw someday it'll probably be relegated quite quickly.01:36
Primeshardware wise it's better. The software can catch up over time01:36
Primesthe community can adapt it more, IF there are enough of the phones around01:36
DocScrutinizerodds are future OS versions have _more_ N950 specific flaws rather than less01:36
javispedrohardware wise sadly it's a bit on the underpowered side, save for the much appreciated RAM.01:36
fusiusb port has just gone kaput ^^01:36
javispedroDocScrutinizer: the current OS has not many N950 flaws. Rather, browser crashes, fenix crashes are common.01:37
PrimesIsn't the n950 the same 1ghz as the N9?01:37
Arkenoithe only two things that annoys me really much (except aegis and capacitive screen) are "smart" keyboard behavior when typing messages and notes and landscape mode glitches01:37
Primesdoes opera browser crash on it?01:37
jacekowskii'm still using my 10 years old simcard01:37
Arkenoibrowser and email crashes just as often as n900 did01:37
DocScrutinizerPrimes: there aren't enough around, and relevant bits are still blobs01:37

Arkenoithe only difference is MfE now really works01:37
javispedroArkenoi: NOWHERE near it.01:37
Primesmy browsers never crashed on n900 (I used 4 so far)01:38
jacekowskiPrimes: BS01:38
jacekowskiPrimes: microb crashed01:38
Arkenoimicrob did crash quite frequently for me01:38
javispedrobrowser crashes for every other page, EVEN with the advantage that the N950 has NO flash while the N900 does (and Flash is to blame for most the crashes I had on the N900)01:38
jacekowskiPrimes: chromium crashed01:38
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: look at $random_app, what do you see? Right! portrait mode01:38

DocScrutinizeryeah, and you actually can *use* the kbd when device sits on table01:49
javispedroI do not like the keyb as much as the N900 or N810.01:49
javispedrobut I cannot tell why.01:49
Arkenoiis there no known method to force it to behave as a decent keyboard should do, without all that stupid "smartphone smartass tricks"?01:50
Primesa friend had a nokia external bluetooth keyboard he bought on ebay I guess it might connect with the n900. His was white and folded in half, nearly full size keys01:50
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: usually I get same feeling, but 5 days ago I had 30s were I noticed it's not bad at all, This moment ended as it came01:50
javispedroI do think it might be because it requires getting used to it.01:50
Primesyou mean it insists on that texting expansion prediction tricks?01:50
Arkenoii switched to n900 from e90 and i can say n900 keyboard truly sucked. with n950 i feel almost as comfortable as before01:50
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: that, and the missing convexity of keycaps01:51
javispedroBut I do not remember such a strong feeling when moving from n810 to n900 and there is no comparison (the n810 is ages better)01:51
*** Dibblah__ has joined #maemo01:51
Primesn900 keys are a little small. I'd quite like the n900 bigger/wider. In particular the extra line of keys for the numerics, like the n95001:51
javispedroso, as said, I feel there's something weird. Can't get to the same speed and it gets tiresome.01:51
ArkenoiPrimes: prediction can be turned off, but weird attempts to insert capital letter after dot etc etc cannot01:52
DocScrutinizerthat's probably all about the keycap shape01:52
javispedroDocScrutinizer: might be, come to think of it.01:52
PrimesIt's compactness, I can burst to 89 words a minute on a full desktop quality keyboard, mobile is a compromise01:52
javispedroon both the N810 and the N900 they were slightly convex as you mentioned01:52
PrimesRight that's annoying. I do my own capitalisation by choice01:53
javispedroPrimes: you clearly are not a Maemo oldtimer, eh?01:53
javispedroyou get used to it.01:53

*** lizardo has joined #maemo13:35
DocScrutinizerxnt14: actually bandwidth isn't the issue with 3G, it's frequency of transaction entities. Each data transfer, whether in or out, causes some heavy penalty on power consumption, i.e. bites out a certain chunk of energy from your battery13:35
Malin_Is there a way to run android-apps in maemo?13:35
DocScrutinizerxnt14: this is because on 3G the TX will stay active for some time even after sending/receiving a singley byte13:36
DocScrutinizersee ff13:37
xnt14DocScrutinizer: So even running something that's very bandwidth-efficient would still kill the battery?13:37
*** dar3d3vil has joined #maemo13:37
DocScrutinizerunless transfers are bundled and occur only occasionally, in chunks13:38

Siceloxnt14: did u consider reverse ssh?13:39
xnt14DocScrutinizer: I see...13:40
*** kW_ has joined #maemo13:40
DocScrutinizerunlike 3G the 2G energy consumption has no penalty for starting a TX event. Rather on 2G energy consumption is rather proportional to data volume transferred13:40
meceDocScrutinizer, nice..13:40
xnt14Sicelo: yes, but I would prefer a public IP. I can't reverse ssh to a school computer for example..13:40
meceok how long is the 3g stayalive time?13:40

meceit's meant for short periods13:45
DocScrutinizeralso keep in mind TCP is a protocol with handshake (and GPRS afaik has its own handshake for all data), so even receiving data cranks up your GSM TX to send the ACK/whatever13:45
mecei'd say 5-15 minutes max13:45

chem|st2h SIP talk was my max with freshly charged bat13:48
chem|stwhen it was new...13:48
DocScrutinizer(handshake, TX) especially nice when you got public IP and nothing stops random far ends to ping your device. Each ping will bite a chunk out of your battery life13:48
SpeedEvilAdmittedly, IIRC my tests were done with a good 3G signal.13:48
SpeedEvilThough about as far from 'city' as you can get.13:48
chem|stSpeedEvil: that was with good signal...13:49

chem|stwould guess like DocScrutinizer to have 4-8 times 15mins possible with any 3g signal13:51
SpeedEvilmece: Why are you doing this - rather than polling less often?13:51
xnt14This way, I'll get a public ipv6 IP. which is better than a NATed ip.13:52

RST38hMeego is also dead btw, some people just haven't accepted it yet14:22
flailingmonkeymeego handset or all of meego14:22
RST38hSymbian will be dead as soon as all of its original managers from Nokia find new jobs14:22
psycho_oreosMeeGo apparently does work on N900, but I'm unsure of its current status with video chip acceleration. The last I checked only certain builds have proper gpu acceleration14:23
flailingmonkeywhat I mean is even with Nokia trying to kill it, Symbian is refuses to die14:24
psycho_oreosSymbian probably won't die for quite sometime, it has already gain a cult within the asian communities (note the various cloned phones running symbian with various skins on top)14:25
flailingmonkeyand they aren't going to play the Microsoft game out in Asia14:26
chouchouneRST38h: why "finally" ?14:26
psycho_oreosremember that Symbian one stage held a very large social acceptance, so these things take sometime for the markets to re-adapt. Contrary to all that, I'm sure at the rate of hacked Symbian to run on exotic phones coming out of asia may also die quite quickly as already have started picking up android for tablets.14:28

psycho_oreosturning android into proper linux isn't going to be likely. Once the purpose of the OS has been established and has been kept in that style it'll be unlikely for them to make dramatic changes14:31

RST38hab: No. His real statements are weird enough though.14:43
DocScrutinizerx29a: there's this raster's linux pending from Samsung - got amazingly quiet about that thing lately. Usually raster came here (and elsewhere) on a regular schedule spreading teaser rants about that new acme OS of his/Samsung's to come RSN14:44

RST38hPoor Ari...14:46
RST38hx29: What exactlu don't you understand?14:46
DocScrutinizeraccording to raster bada is a hickup14:47
RST38hx29: They copied Symbian APIs, with graphics stolen from iPhone, Maemo,and Android. They put the result into their feature phones14:47
RST38hx29: Because the thing is so horrible to developfor(Symbian!) nobody developed for it14:47
RST38hAlso, with all the emphasis on Android (Samsung is THE leading Android phone maker), nobody needed Bada any more.14:48
NidoI tried to develop for symbian, but they wouldn't give me a key so i could, you know, actually run the programs I code14:48
abMy feeling was always that bada is their internal attempt to level different R&D departments and give internal application developers some stable environment to run their apps regardless what OS has won particular product development14:48

infobotraster is currently on #webos-internals (1h 45m 47s) #meego (1h 45m 47s), last said: ':)'.14:49
abfrom that perspective bada totally makes sense as it started much earlier than they got to Android -- at allowed to leverage R&D designs which were developed for low end models14:49
DocScrutinizeroooooh, on #meego??14:49
x29aRST38h: why go that way in the first place? android is suitable for feature phones as well. or whatever proprietary shit they used before. i dont get why they did spend such a huge amount on bada and then let it rott to death14:49
RST38hx29a: I am sure you can answer your own question.14:50
x29aim afraid i cant, hence the "i dont udnerstand" part14:51
RST38hab: probably had a few competing departments too14:51
abRST38h, they do have, that's my understanding14:51
RST38hab: Android obviously winning because of the Samsung's overall strategy of copying stuff, not inventing it14:51
x29aRST38h: and please use your tab key to do autocomplete (full) of my nick, that way i get a highlight14:51
abRST38h, Android is winning for Samsung because they get R&D investment shared with Google and others, doing if not free ride but very close to that14:52
RST38hab: Of course14:52
RST38hab: On the other hand, all android phones look andfeel the same, so there is no brand loyalty or anything like that14:53
RST38hab: Which probably satisfies Samsung, a well known producer of generic goods14:53
RST38hBut may not satisfy others.14:53
x29aab: you dont get that feeling by copying ios/android and call it bada14:53

Sicelosomeone, lupine_85, was able to get them to give him an N900 :)20:06
NIN101some people here demanded an N900, and got one finally. Other take the N8 or E7 and sell it and rebuy an N900.20:06
casketizeryea id take e7 buy 2 n90020:06
fusiwell i sure as shit aint gona be fobbed off with sdome lesser device20:06
lupine_85fusi, they will replace it with an N90020:07
lupine_85you just have to insist20:07
fusithanks, will do20:07
lupine_85and potentially threaten small claims20:07
Primesdemand it. or sell the n8 get n90020:07
lupine_85don't do that20:07
fusii will demand20:07
casketizeru can get 400-500eu for new e720:07
fusiwant a working n90020:07
lupine_85if you accept->sell->buy, you could well end up with one lacking any warranty at all20:07

lupine_85fusi, are you in the EU?20:08
lupine_85good stuff20:08
lupine_85you're covered by a 2-year european limited warranty20:08
casketizeri sold one for 427 on egay 2-3weeks ago20:08
fusipretty sure we've got laws for this sort of stuff yea20:09
lupine_85it stipulates a repair or replacement within a reasonable timeframe20:09
lupine_85*on top* of your SoGA rights20:09
lupine_85important is that it's just "replacement"20:09
Primesi was installing apps with fast app mgr. out of disk hung it. now ndg is half installed. app man cant remove it. fapman wants to update it but then hangs. aptget remove or purge can't lose it either. ideas?20:09
casketizerthey can give u an equivalent if they are out of n900, no law will help u there20:09
fusie7 is not an equivalent20:09
casketizerand for them e7>n90020:09
lupine_85casketizer, as long as it's actually an equivalent, that's fine20:09
Primesif they cant replace it try ask for cheque20:10
lupine_85to be an equivalent, it would need to be running maemo, and have a hardware keyboard20:10
casketizerdream on20:10
lupine_85casketizer, I did this earlier this month20:10
lupine_85I have a new N900 from nokia care as a result20:10
casketizereu laws are not that good when it comes hard on hard20:10
Primesask them for equivalent n950 lol20:10
lupine_85this is a warranty20:10
fusiwhere r u lupine_85 ? france20:11
fusi ah20:11
fusifolloiwng ur lead20:11
lupine_85casketizer, would you accept a washing machine as a replacement for a washer-dryer?20:11
fusi2secs nokia on phone20:11
lupine_85just on the grounds that it's a newer model?20:11
lupine_85if it's missing advertised features, it is not a replacement20:11
casketizerwell if u get nokia to give u an n900 fine, but dont assume u can win in any eu court if they say they have none and offer u an e720:11
fusiwhat if id bought thousands of poundsworth of software for the n900 ;p20:11
fusiwhere weould i be then eh20:12
lupine_85casketizer, of course you could win in court20:12
casketizerdream on20:12
lupine_85it's very clear-cut, merely on the terms of the warranty they've agreed20:12
lupine_85casketizer, so would you accept a washing machine as a replacement for a washer-dryer?20:12
casketizerread the fine print20:12
lupine_85I did20:12
lupine_85I read the whole thing carefully20:12
casketizerthere are avaiabilityx excuses in the warranty20:12
lupine_85nowhere is "replacement" made into "replacement at nokia's discretion"20:12
lupine_85read it yourself20:13
casketizeri did20:13
lupine_85so refer to me a paragraph20:13
lupine_85because we obviously have differeing views on what it says20:13
lupine_85fusi, my case ended up being referred to their escalations, who referred it to their manager, who got an N90020:13
casketizeri dont have it handy and im too lazy to look it up...20:14
lupine_85and as the Nokia guy in escalations said, casketizer, "you're entirely in the right, I won't try to argue"20:14
lupine_85casketizer, I linked to it a couple of minutes ago20:14
casketizerbut i have seem them actually win such cases. i used to work in customer protection20:14
lupine_85casketizer, so link me to the relevant case law20:14
casketizerlupine i read it in german20:15
lupine_85I can translate20:15
lupine_85link me20:15
*** InvalidHandle has joined #maemo20:15
lupine_85they have a simple legal obligation to provide a replacement, and it's easy - trivial - to demonstrate that an E7 is not a replacement for an E720:15
casketizerim not gonna send u /dev/bull. believe what u must....20:15
lupine_85erm, N90020:15
lupine_85casketizer, you seem to be avoiding the washer / washer-dryer analogy20:15
lupine_85maybe you could expand on whether you'd accept the washing machine or not20:15
psycho_oreoslupine_85, are you also available on the tmo forum? there's a bloke on the forum whom lives in UK and I don't know if he has any chance of getting his N900 back or a replacement N900:

lupine_85no. if they'd not been able to get an N900 within that timescale, they would probably have refunded rather than try to defend their position in court22:03

lupine_85and they sent me an N900 as a direct consequence22:07
* javispedro notes: as I said.22:07
lupine_85also, the speed with which they were able to acquire an N900 - and the pristine condition it's in - suggests to me that they're not actually out of stock at all, they just have an internal policy of trying to get people off them22:08
lupine_85not that I can substantiate it beyond that, of course22:08
nox-or they bought back stock from shops?22:08
nid0I had heard not long ago that nokia were buying back unsold stock from retailers to try to fulfill warranties22:09
*** vi___ has joined #maemo22:09
lupine_85that'd be a bit odd for them to do unless they can buy it back at less than the retail price22:09

lupine_85obviously, their future warranty obligations are reduced by doing it22:09
vi___I put my old n900 into the repair shop today22:09
lupine_85since if they'd given me £500, I would have bought a new N900 with a new 2 year warranty22:09
* ruskie knocks on wood... his n900 is still working rock solid22:09
nid0if the retailers arent expecting to shift them, buyback price probably wasnt much/any more than their original trade cost22:10
DocScrutinizerlook it's so simple: Nokia produced X units N900, they sold 90% and kept 10% for the anticipated RMA. It turned out they were wrong as RMA is maybe 30%, so now Nokia is short on N900. They send a paper to all help desks with instructions to try and replace N900 by sth they are *not* short on, to keep the remaining devices for the customers that are _not_ happy about getting some _real_ phone in swap for that crappy N90022:10
vi___I was trying to explain there is a hardware problem, GPIO113 is spazzing out.  THe only way to stop it is to change the permissions on the device file in /sys22:10
lupine_85DocScrutinizer, so pushing back is the solution22:10
lupine_85...if true22:11
vi___and the dude was like ' uh the lock doesnt work?'22:11
lupine_8530% seems pretty high!22:11
nid0those are obv made-up figures22:11
vi___it is so frustrating trying to tell tech support what the problem is without looking like a total ass hat22:11
nid0it could as easily be 0.5% and 2%22:11
lupine_85nid0, well, in my local circle of N900 owners (sample size: 4) it is 50%22:11
ruskievi___, I more or less gave up on explaining to service people what exactly the problem is22:11
lupine_85but that's too small a sample to be useful22:11
*** marthd has joined #maemo22:12
nid0my device is 18 months old and still flawless22:12
vi___well good for you sunshine22:12
ruskienid0, same here22:12
lupine_85this is where having a friend who works in the place is useful22:12
nid0im the only person I actually know personally who owns one22:12
nid0so its 0% failure for me :p22:12
ruskieit'll be 2 years december 4th22:12
lupine_85nid0, our workplace is N900 central22:12
DocScrutinizerand if a lot of customers insist in N900 replacements, Nokia *might* be urged to manufacture another batch of brand new N90022:12
lupine_854 out of 12 stagg have N900s22:12
vi___n900, not for noobz22:12
nid0oh that said, I know a couple of ex-symbian staff that had n900;s22:12
*** Mousey has joined #maemo22:12

DocScrutinizermohammad is offline it seems. He'd probably one of the guys that could actually help22:39
DocScrutinizervi___: cssu is known to bork on a number of non-standard system configs. Esp if you replaced some system stuff that in turn introduces dependency conflicts22:41

*** hannesw_ has quit IRC22:41
DocScrutinizervi___: sorry I never really wrapped my head around how CSSU installer hackerish is cooked22:42
DocScrutinizersth along the line apt-get can't edit repository list, and so can't HAM22:42
DocScrutinizerso you install and start a installer (the icon) which in turn edits repo list and then starts HAM again22:43
DocScrutinizers/HAM/apt-get (maybe)/22:44
infobotDocScrutinizer meant: so you install and start a installer (the icon) which in turn edits repo list and then starts apt-get (maybe) again22:44
vi___yes that would appear to be the case22:44
vi___however sweet f'all seems to exist in the cssu repos22:45
