Then, we have to define a keyboard layout. QWERTY or ABCDEF. Add
numeric keys or make them Num+QWERTY to save one row of keys.

And to unsimplify, we need a US, a UK, a German, a French, an Italian
layout and maybe Chinese, Japanese etc. This is doable by exchanging
keycaps or keymats - but we have to stock and provide several different
ones.

Layout could be changed via software.
What is actually printed on keys, does not matter much, it is changable on
user side.


Or just don't print it, a la

For me, it's the tactile feedback of a hardware keyboard I like--and I 
don't mean making the phone vibrate or the whole screen's clicking 
down or the phone's making a click sound when I hit a key, but being 
able to clearly /feel/ the edges of the keys so I know what key I'm 
hitting before I hit it and even when my finger is covering the keys.  
No idea if you could simulate it well enough with something like 
Senseg's (electro-static) haptics technology ( http://senseg.com/ + 
http://senseg.com/technology/senseg-technology ), but I have my doubts, 
and I'm sure patents and licensing costs make that a no-go, anyway.

 I agree.

 On http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Neo_FreeRunner everyone can read:

 The FreeRunner can be purchased from the Online Store 
 http://www.openmoko.com as of July 3, 2008. The software available on 
 the phone makes it suitable for power users and developers only -- it is 
 not yet ready for the general consumer.

 So whining that it is not ready for the regular user is kind of sad. 
 There is a difference between a regular and a power user, and that is 
 not only the letters it takes to write the words.

Yeah, now we just have to figure out a way to let all those regular 
users who are under the incorrect assumption that they must be power 
users because they once downloaded/installed a insert GNU/Linux distro 
here ISO that they are in fact not power users...  (Or, worse yet, 
someone who has been a Windows sys admin for 10 years...)

Unfortunately, those who don't have the experience to decide whether 
they actually want a FreeRunner without that text are probably most 
likely to incorrectly assume they must be power users.

Mike (who hopes to be a good beginner of a power user in 30 years, but 
who actually did/does want his FreeRunner)

 do you have any special nat features, a transparent proxy in use?

 lets track it down.

OK.  I'm finally at home again (I've been traveling for work) and got a 
chance to play around to test it.  It turns out it wasn't my router 
configuration, it was my browser configuration.

The payment site is verifying the Referer header and my browser was not 
sending that header.  The off-network computer I tried was configured to 
send the Referer, so it worked on that one.  I could have sworn I had 
tested that when I was trying to buy initially (as many websites are 
broken^H^H^H^H^H^Hconfigured to require a specific Referer value, so I 
usually remember to check).

/me wonders if he should mention the futility of using /any/ 
client-side-generated data for security purposes...  I guess, though, 
that's not Openmoko's problem, but Hi Trust's.

Seems this one has something to do with my NAT'ing firewall/router.  
When I tried from a computer with a direct connection to the Internet, 
it went through without a problem.  I tried all combinations of Firefox 
2, Internet Explorer, and Firefox 3 and the only difference in the 
systems was the network connection (and the fact that the one that 
worked--with the direct connection--was running Windows, but I'm pretty 
sure that's not the issue).

As I really wanted to get the phone, I didn't mess around with NAT 
settings to see exactly what was causing the issue, but I'm happy to do 
further testing.

I really hope their web site recognizes that internal networks exist, too...

I think 500 is probably a generic HTTP 500 (Internal Server Error), as 
I'm getting a Gateway Error 500 (Error from the Hi Trust gateway: 
TrustLink Server is closed. Or Merchant Server IP is not consistent with

Though--assuming I can get to the Hi Trust server eventually--I'll keep

My favorite line, As an industry, we plan to use open-source 
technologies but we are not yet ready to play by the rules; but this 
needs to work the other way round too.

What exactly does he mean by that?  It sounds like he's saying that the 
industry is going to ignore the rules of open source and wants open 
source developers to ignore the rules of the industry?  Though I'll 
admit that interpretation is a complete contradiction of everything else 
in the article, I can't come up with another interpretation.  I'm 
guessing it's a bad quotation in the article or he just happened to 
choose the wrong words to convey his message.

Well, ATT says that the new subsidy will cost them $600M.  So, I assume 
he just divided that figure by the total number of these new iPhones 
that ATT will ever sell and added that to the $199 (with contract) 
consumer price for the new iPhone.  ;)

Re: Library can handle MP3 id3tag encoding

Is there a good library can handle MP3 id3tag encoding easily? AFAIK,
the encoding that in the id3tag can't be decided, it maybe ASCII,

The libid3tag can do raw reading to id3tag but not handle the encoding easily.


Have you looked at TagLib?  
http://developer.kde.org/~wheeler/taglib.html  (Though it's at the KDE 
website, it doesn't require the KDE libs.)  Don't know how well it 
handles encodings, but MythMusic recently switched from libid3tag to TagLib.

 The OpenMoko project, as it appears to others, is a failure of the open
 source model rather than the visible example of the success of open
 development that it rightly should be. 

 I've been expecting the opportunity to buy a Neo for over six months
 now, and it seems to be that the only way in which to obtain a small
 form-factor smartphone is to pop into the cathedral and buy an iPhone.
