Not if your boss is paying for your travel and conf fees !
3d Video Conferences?
One obvious application would be to improve video conferencing, by isolating the person in front of the camera from the background (trivial once you have depth information), and assemble a virtual meeting room with several participants.
Navdroyd does OSM
Navdroyd is completely offline, uses OSM data, and its like a fiver from what I can remember. But dont expect all the bells and whistles from CoPilot
TeamDrive claims to do this exactly, replicate Dropbox functionality but you provide the serverspace !
They do offer a 20gb paid version !
Is this the road? Still on Google Maps as well!
Cheers TeleAltas !
I would hardly call that a review!
Altough based on the same dataset, its a completely separate application and approach (offline, vs online) than Skobbler....
You missed out NavDroyd on Android!
It's based on OSM, which makes it a good thing in my view as its only 4 pounds on the market. Been out now for a couple of months, there are constant updates and its made by Germans!
Simple, but gets the job done and the best bit its completely offline, ie. you download the map data on your phone, and then you can use it without needing data transfers. Perfect for when your roaming, which is when you most probably will need navigation!
OSM is not a service!
It's a dataset, a dynamic one, but still only a dataset. You have to build your own service, be it spatial database, tileserver, wms server to host and disseminate the data. Relying on the mapnik tile layer should only be a development option if you want to have a serious application/service at the end.
download went fine for me !
A question someone here might be able to answer:
I have got at the moment Windows7 RTM installed on my Home PC, which is nagging me to activate the copy. Can I now just plugin the serial number I have got from the student offer, and activate my copy? Or do I need to reinstall Windows 7?
this is a real phone, but not the G1 successor
Have a look at this Engadget Posting: from the beginning of this week!! Old news:
Its a resistive touchscreen, so no multitouch unfortunately. I really dont understand why they cant put in a capacitive touchscreen to enable multitouch.
Capacitive touchscreens also mean that they can be covered by a protective glass, much like in the Iphone. Instead, we have to push hard and worry about the sensitive plasticky? screen.
That study looks anything but aerodynamic to me. More like big and heavy.
Actually, Be was specifically excluded because of insufficient sample size.
