finally got to spend some time hacking… and solved a problem in the meantime. When working with embedded devices, what do you do if there is no hardware keyboard and you are staring at a console prompt, and have no networking? I came upon this when I was working with the Nokia 770 and getting […]

So, we are making some progress with our expansion into Germany. Here are some pictures of the office building we currently favor. It’s a rather old building from the former Academy of Sciences of the GDR, but beautifully renewed. Nice address, too: Albert-Einstein-Strasse, Berlin.

I admit. I have become a handheld junky. My desk is strewn with quite a few devices. I have even been contemplating buying my 7 month old son one of those kids laptops you see at the Tandy store (Radio Shack for those North Americans). Maybe I will when he drools less. I am coming […]

Posted in Qt, Qtopia

I redid some application startup tests for handheld environments with a different machine, namely with one that has more ram – the Sharp Zaurus c700. and granted, Gpe did heaps better this time… but it’s still not as fast as the Qt based Opie.
