Jul 6th 2010 10:19AM I've seen better dubbing on Shaw Bros. flicks. Was waiting on that "hmmm..." that comes with bad dubs. Maybe a couple of 'wah-spkkk, wah-spkk' noises too.
Nov 11th 2009 5:27PM I just don't get Psystar. They seem like they WANT to get spanked by Apple. Or even the FTC. Sure, the Hackintosh scene isn't something for everybody, it requires a bit of knowledge, but it seems to work better than this product.
Search around. Many people are saying that Psystar's product just doesn't work as advertised.
Oct 28th 2009 8:42AM This definitely needs to be photoshop'd to show a more appropriate image that he'd reach out for.
Sep 16th 2009 2:46PM This was news... two days ago.
Sep 11th 2009 1:46PM I think the misunderstanding isn't even around carrier customization(s)... it's around carriers crippling features. Big difference.
Aug 15th 2009 4:51AM faster processor, fit Maemo on there, up the RAM to 256mb, work on the inconsistent UI and above all... find a carrier that will subsidize that whole way-too-damn-expensive price on it.
Flush Ovi, get more apps on it that are worth a darn, and attract more devs to the platform. Fix that price though... seriously. A damn recession and you price it to where it won't sell. How dumb.
Aug 8th 2009 2:05PM Maemo's Application Manager is a far cry from an "App Store"... you have to add, remove and manage repositories for instance. That's a big difference. It's more akin to adding/removing apps in Ubuntu than the iTunes Store... or even Ovi for that matter.
However, let's be frank. Nokia doesn't support the Maemo platform past two iterations per device.
770 - OS 2005, OS 2006 (Gregale, Bora) - the rest were unofficial/hacker editions
N800 - OS 2007, OS 2008 (Chinook. Diablo) - it's dead in the water
N810 - OS 2008, OS 2008 with SSU (Chinook, Diablo) - it's dead in the water
And this RX-51 runs Fremantle, which will have it's GTK+ UI bits removed by Qt in Harmattan, which will break all of the existing dev/apps for the most part and if the past serves an indicator, any/all major changes in OS usually means a new device. See above.
Nokia hasn't been consistent on the updates other than quickly abandoning it. Sad when the original iPhone can run (albeit a bit slower) the newest firmware. You can't say the same for the 770. And soon, not the same for the N810.
But the Maemo Application Manager is nothing, NOTHING like iTunes Music Store.
Aug 3rd 2009 12:06PM I wonder how many fell for it.
Jul 30th 2009 7:28PM Wait... do I understand this right. They throw a system like DRM down people's throats to keep their thieving customers - face it, they treat us all like thieves - in check only to state that it might go down at any time and that's the nature of it?
Sure, if I break my CD in my collection, that's on me. I blame myself.
If they take down the DRM server, then that's on them, right? Or by using their logic, it's also on me because I bought it under their current rules and they might change, alter, or disconnect at any damn time they please?
Yeah. No wonder they're seen as the "bad guy". Bunch of folks stuffing their pockets today finding new ways to do so tomorrow.
