My New Cell Phone – Nokia n95 8GB

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

Yeah, hate me.. I got one. Its so freakin awesome. here are a few things that really kick ass so far about this phone:

  • I am able to sync music to the phone via amarok using Linux
  • I am able to browse the web using WIFI or my 3g data service.
  • I have configured my n95 as a sip client and have it registered with my Asterisk server.
  • The phone supports mobile bar codes
  • The camera takes WONDERFUL pictures. The quality is very high!! And you can export them directly to flickr!!
  • The phone takes really great video
  • Did I mention I didnt need windows to add music to this thing??

Im sure there are other really great things about this phone too but I have only had it a couple days so I havent had time to check all the features out yet.

New iPods Cracked over the weekend

Monday, September 17th, 2007

Thats right folks, they cracked the new iPods over the weekend. This crack went faster than the iPhone. Here is the story. All I can say is that the way open source works is amazing. Just think of how far along we could be in this world technology wise if there werent people wasting their time cracking locked code and everyone could just focus on ways to make it better..

New IPOD doomed with out iTunes

Friday, September 14th, 2007

Well it seems you may be doomed to use iTunes for you new iPod. Thanks to apple who seems to have gone out of their way to make the iPod not work with out itunes (according to this fine article). I am one of the poor saps who went and bought not just 1 but 2 of the new iPods. I got a new 80g classic, and a new nano. I sure hope someone is able to get these working in amarok or gtkpod because I HATE USING WINDOWS I have been winblows free for several years but now I had to install it just to get music on our new iPods.
