Firts of all and to not distort the beautifull "first blood" thread of
Doug I have started it in a another one and also maked it OT due in
spite is interesting due is about open hardware is not strictly
Openmoko related. So after the first intro here we go
Yes I have seen this , maybe I'm too much quiet in the Qi Hardware
List, but I read almost all messages there even those I don't
understand about kernel things :), and of course the blog posts, and
hey! I also start translating your(our) wiki to spanish :P. So be sure
I have more than an eye there.
Having GTK over Frambuffer, also see the benchmark , cool! is a great
great news, you have open a lot of doors for port already existing
apps and to do new developments.Now next step is have QT over
Framebuffer too on Openwrt, (if it's not already done yet) and
possibilities will just multiply :)
Just a point about the envy, is not just to have a wikipedia in your
pocket, is for have the device itself :) long time waiting that
project B thing , yes geeks have a part of collector , and there is no
much commercialized open gadgets out there so any new one is an object
By the way I'm in touch with Wolfgang and Mirko to have one of those
first Ben NanoNote and start playing with it and spread the results of
the playing to the world, and yes a color/audio version of The
Hitchhiker's Gu... sorry Wikipedia will be a cool cool thing :)
A lot of beautiful devices will arrive at Tuxbrain soon, at least as
sample, Wikireader, Ben Nanonote, Always Innovating Touchbook,
Openpandora, and now I have in my hands an awesome Sharp
Netwalker(some experiments along with Neo Freerunner soon :P), I wish
having three or four more hands to handle all this beauties at once :)
but at least they have the size to wear them everywhere. But I have no
patience to wait for them without feeling greats amounts of envy when
I saw other has the luck to play with them first. I'ts not so bad :)
this ugly feeling disappears once the courier knocks my door :) and is
fully forgotten once I start sending them to other envious and
anxious geeks to calm their hungry of hacking.
Steve, I don't know if your are aware about the om-showroom
project, it stills on early stages but I hope in short I will
have a test site up an running , I was thinking , due NanoNote is
based on Openwrt that is based on ipk packages as is SHR, do a
nanonote-showroom will not be so much difficult. I you think is a good
Idea I can express it in the qi-hardware list. Just same
"requeriments" as om-showroom, Tuxbrain logo as sponsor, and some
"classic" banner about Tuxbrain products at the bottom ;P,
Love to talk with you again on this list, man ;)
