So it's fiiiine...
Re: M3710 turret
* Google "BT M3710 turret"
Lots of mobile phones
* Google "BT turret"
Oh, trading systems!
Find a result for "BT Meridian M2216/D turret"
* Google "BT Meridian"
Finally find a "BT Norstar Meridian Handset M*73*10N"
Is this it?
Quick, call Stob! It atent't dead!
Slack, now Teams, before AIM and ICQ, when IRC is perfectly reasonable, open, and free
Whatsapp and FB Messenger and Apple Messages when XMPP is perfectly reasonable, open, and free.
Tech people really like to enslave themselves - but hey, Google and Facebook make tons of money, so I guess that's OK
Having their own HTML renderer is the only way they can get a seat on the table and not be pushed out of the Web by others entending-extinguishing, like Apple almost did to mobile browsing with the proprietary extensions to Safari on iOS.
"it's a "how to" about application should never be written mixing languages randomly, using the wrong tools (bash scripts, really???), and designing something for your immediate needs only, without being able to look at the big picture"
That's almost every open-source application, ever, until a benefactor (Dell, IBM, Apple) comes in and starts pumping money and programmers to make it proper. As usual (withness OpenSSL) no such sponsor worries about the middleware. Maybe Microsoft can do it now.
Only in a Crysis
Fuchsia will be Android-compatible and include Play Services. It will NOT have a Linux kernel, therefore removing the last bit of european tech from mobile.
If that was so important, the moment to act would've been when Nokia sold its soul to Microsoft leaving Maemo (direct ascendant of Sailfish) in a small rowboat (Jolla) to fend for itself. It's amazing that 7 years later we're trying to get out from under Apple and Google's thumb when we could've avoided it in the first place.
That's the one I was talking about, but I was on my phone at the time and couldn't get the link to add to my post
There will be a paper submitted to this year's SIGGRAPH (Justus Thies et al. 2018) with a method for manipulating pre-recorded video that animates the eyes separately.
Also, since IBMs R&D chip fab is there, I guess you're all set for fish and chips.
Well, do you?
I hope so, because unfortunately, it is. We may be laughing ourselves to death, here.
Will the single N900 owner with a working USB port install this and take a screenshot? I want to giggle like a little girl.
WebOS did it first, N9 did it better, can't say anything about BB10 because I never put my hands on it, but these johnny-come-latelies have latched into gestures as "the new thing" but they're retrofitting swipes into systems that have never been designed for them. They're the Nokia N97 of swiping.
Funnily, it's a key no Mac laptop keyboard has had in a long time, maybe ever (you have to Fn-Backspace to get "delete")
Hey, Facebook Messenger also used XMPP once... But when users are the product, you don't want anyone to access "your" users without paying your toll.
Simples! Back to IRC.
I only care if Nokia re-releases the N9. With Sailfish and the original UI.
How the heck are professionals not using 1-bit ADCs? You'll tell me they have a network of resistors next...
I have some very bad memories of my Ericsson MC218 keyboard. The feedback wasn't very good (can't really describe how, but I just took it out again to check), it seemed that the keys wobbled a bit, and if you didn't hit the key dead center it would fail to register or have a horrible feeling to it.
I never had access to a 5mx to check if it was the exactsame keyboard or if Ericsson messed with it.
It's not TOO bad if you're thumb-typing in your hand, but horrible if index-typing on a table.
Are there shenanigans afoot with that Huawei result?
Sailfish is the N9's OS without some the best UI ideas (which were patented by Nokia and sold to Microsoft) and an Android emulator.
The N9 was more finished than the iPhone 3G. Only the iPhone 3GS even approached "finished"...
The N9 was more slick and more "touch" than iOS ever was until the new iPhoneX "gestures"- and even then, whenever I have to use my iPad I scream at how dumb and clunky it is to jump and share items between applications.
I used my N9 for 5 years and it only stopped being my daily driver because I could no longer find good batteries for it. The N9 could've been the start of great things. Many Qt apps for Symbian would work with minimal changes, and vice-versa. Qt Quick was easier to develop for than Android "Java". Etc.
They were developing the right product, they just "forgot" to launch it.
They had a world beater in the N900 - it became "experimental"
They had a world conqueror in the N9 - it wasn't allowed to upset the Windows applecart
The only thing stopping me is knowing if the chipset can accelerate h.265 (and not knowing if Kodi android works properly)
Andy, I love your contrarian views, but again and again you dismiss the Nokia N9, maybe because you're so invested in Nokia having broken Symbian that you also fail to recognize that Nokia stumbled upon something far better in the end.
Number 2 (a timeline of your events, social updates on a dedicated screen) appeared first on the Nokia N9's Swipe UI, not on BB10.
Also: swipe to multitask? Tap-to-Wake? OLED screen? Where have I heard that before?
As usual, I found the perfect gadget for me and I'm just waiting for everyone else to fail to recognise its brilliance and leave me with an unsupported lump. As usual. Just like with the Nokia N9, you're all dumb.
It's called the Withings Steel HR. Looks like a proper watch, several weeks of battery life, health tracking (pulse, steps, workout logging, sleep tracking) and the main notifications from the phone.
Could it do more, like contactless payments, guided workouts, GPS tracking and bespoke apps? Not for thrice the price and ten times less battery life.
"It's hard to compete in a mature market if your main competitor has access to billions of dollars worth of free marketing."
Crow-eating time for anyone that associated Opera's small market share with code quality.
Opera 12 still reads The Register.
The Kodi community has been suffering from SMB1-only support in Android and now that most sane people have forcibly disabled SMB1 on their fileservers or NAS, Kodi can't connect (current fix: use an NFS export, hence nuclear icon).
According to Kodi developer's it's Samba's newer code supporting SMB2 that has some kind of cross-platform compilation issue that just keeps it from working on Android. According to someone from Team Kodi on the Kodi forums, "courtesy of samba by changing build system to something incredibly broken for cross compiling. We're debating and working on upgrading samba on and off for a while now."
Google could've a) added some compatibility shim to enable this cross-compiling to happen; 2) work with Samba to create a standard SMB2 library that worked in Android; 3) create their own SMB2 client implementation for Android.
Silly me, just repack Samba's code and job's a good'un!
I think I have grounds to sue because of the unceremonious dropping of support for the Snapdragon 801
Qualcomm simply refused to update the Snapdragon 80x drivers to Android 7. And the 80x was a flagship chip. It killed a lot of of phones, even a Sony phone that had an OFFICIAL Nougat beta ROM that had to pulled in the 11th hour.
So, has Pottsy been affected? When is he going to give us the low-down on this?
The Linux kernel in Android is several steps removed from the master code, and most android versions are running ancient and outdated kernel versions.
Google just took from Linux the same way they just took from Java, and gave nothing back.
If you don't look too closely, it's just a watch. Still tracks my activity and gives me notifications.
What I wanted was an Outlook.com Tasks client for Android that would sync up with Windows 10. The only option on Android was the paid version of Blackberry Hub+, and NOTHING in Windows 10 (apart from desktop Outlook - oh you mean that for those without Outlook a note-taking app called OneNote was supposed to do tasks instead of the PIM suite? Really?)
Now get some integration going. When I write "call Geoff", show me a dropdown of all the Geoffs in my contacts and let me link one of them.
Since they're supporting VMs and containers, Corral must be a nod to the "cattle, not pets" server deployment buzzword very much in fashion nowadays. I'm kinda reluctantly grumbling in approval.
Look around the usual places for Nokia N810, N900 and N950.
To be a usable mobile phone, the clam-shell would have to open the other way around and show the screen on the TOP face when closed. Think N900 or N950.
This is a PDA. It needs a RemixOS port on the Android side and a well-supported Linux distribution on the other side.
(As much as I do pine for Harmattan or Sailfish on the Gemini, it would be a square peg on a round hole)
Unless, of course, it also works to move to the next page in an article, a forum thread, or a list of pictures.
Called FastForward and one of the better innovations of (old) Opera.
(I also don't use the buttons - why would I, when I can left-click and right-click)
Too bad he's set for 3 more autobiographical movies. At one each two years, we'll never make it alive.
No, just a lack of managerial inability for recognizing that all the hard work on the advanced Linux-based devices (the Nokia Internet Tablet line) had finally fused them with very good telephony and they had a winner with the N9.
I'm seeing more like 3-4% between Sandy Bridge and Haswell... Unless you're counting MOAR CORES or very specialized applications for which Intel has developed special instructions.
Only on the upper stages were hydrolox. The first, massive stage, was querolox (RP-1 + liquid oxygen).
Bets on which big japanese bank is going to be whacked with a $120m fine next week for "causing the financial meltdown" like Deutsche Bank.
Lotus was a totally microcomputer-based business...
Publicly having a proficiency test for the cyber-troops? oh my...
I'll buy! Just remember that Qt can't be closed, by definition.
I'm giggling uncontrolably because payback came late but came like a ton of bricks. That "Fastlane" UX is a pale shadow of the original "Swipe" UX of the Nokia N9, which was unceremoniously killed in the cradle for this Redmond abomination to survive on life support. Then, Microsoft did me the favor of dropping the Lumia 520 from the Windows 10 roster, meaning that the choice between changing to Android or WPhone when my N9 died had been made for me. Finally someone gave the lame horse a mercy killing.
Schadenfreude is a b*tch, though - I HATE Android.
They were also the absolute champions (*) in smartphones. You'd know that if you had used a Nokia N9 for any amount of time.
(* - in the end: the S60 interface was mostly usable, then they tried to add touch to it and made it horrible.)
