Idea for OpenMoko: Kid Mode

2007-01-24 Thread Paul Jimenez
How about a locked-down 'kid version' of the UI with touchable pictures for 'mommy', 'daddy', etc ? Maybe not even labelled, but just the pictures? --pj ___ OpenMoko community mailing list community@lists.openmoko.org

Sean please just ignore idiots like this. The rest of us know you're doing the best job you can and want to see the phone out ASAP just as much as we do. In summary: ignore the trolls and keep doing what you're doing. --pj On Saturday, Jan 27, 2007, Sean Moss-Pultz writes: On 1/26/07 9:40

I think a good Jabber client could totally supplant MMS - it support file transfers, which is all MMS really does (I think), as well as things MMS never dreamed of like encryption and presence and etc. Putting a good mobile-UI on, say, Psi or one of the other open source Jabber clients shouldn't

If someone wants to repurpose the neo hardware, check out what the guys at http://www.environmental-studies.de/products/pet-tracking/pet-tracking.h tml are doing. They're sold out for now, but they might be worth talking to to see if they want to try and start from a base Neo and just add some

+1 Software by its nature is easier to fix than hardware or even firmware; this approach does the Right Thing: vendors win because the firmware layer just got a whole lot easier to write and the rest of the world wins because we get as much control as legally permissible of our hardware. On

How about a case that's part metal and part plastic? Make it plastic just around the antennas (which, IIRC are at the 'ends' of the phone) and metal everywhere else? Heck, it could end up having a *good* effect by being extra shielding between the antennas and the (noisy) electronics of the

Hi Michael, This is a good start, very informative. Some good additions, I think, would be: * Why does computer/usb charging max out at 500mA? is that a limitation of the USB spec? * you mention 'other manufacturers' that 'identify their own chargers' with various resistors... if

Related to making openmoko gear - is there vector art of the logo somewhere? I checked the wiki and couldn't find a reference, and checked downloads.openmoko.com and again came up empty. Inquiring minds want to know! Also, if it is published, we'd probably want some kind of license to use it that

Ponoko has acrylic in 1/8 and some 1/4 thicknesses that you can get laser-cut for fairly reasonable prices - IIRC, they just opened a bay-area cut/ship center to reduce shipping in the US (they're originally from New Zealand!). Looks like a typical project from 7x7x1/8 acrylic is around $10-$20.
