Re: Zipper (Turn your smartphone into a blockchain powerhouse)

Indeed bitcoin uses a lot of electricity for the mining, but the world of cryptocurrencies extends far beyond what bitcoin has to offer. In many ways bitcoin is starting to look a bit archaic...

Re: Zipper (Turn your smartphone into a blockchain powerhouse)

The parts visible in the video are isolated from the main OS anyway, its done like that for security reasons so its like a minimal OS container that hosts the blockchain stuff

Re: Purism Librem Phone

You'd think they would end up using ofono+rilplugin anyway, which jolla contributes upstream to, is there actually an alternative?

Ignore the 'app not responding' message, and just wait. Works for me anyway :D

Re: Matrix - clients

The guys working on the client library are doing encryption at the moment, they're also working with Matrix.org and Purism for the librem5 project so maybe they'll end up making a daemon of some kind...

Re: Matrix - clients

Is that account in any rooms? mine is and I have rooms on that screen

You can also join a room using the text field, but you need to use the full room id eg. #matrix:matrix.org

Re: The new QWERTY device project

Generally speaking I find this forum to be reasonably technically minded, as such there's usually no reason to simplify things to the point where they become inaccurate.

Re: The new QWERTY device project

Seconded, remaining focused on the goal here (create a beautiful modern keyboard slider device) is already tough enough without adding in extra compromises to get full mainline compatibility.

Re: SailfishX NFC support

Ok so I was investigating this a bit further and it looks like there is minimal kernel support for the NXP pn547 NFC Chip in these devices, basically just enough to get the thing initialised but not...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Theres a large amount of buzz around the Industrial Internet of Things at the moment, and I'm sure QCom bought NXP to get a piece of that market. It takes a lot of time and effort to bring a new SoC...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

They're a long way off 'too successful' imo.

What we're seeing at the moment is a few open source projects trying to capitalise on the hype of the project, and thats about it.

Re: SailfishX NFC support

You can do bluetooth pairing over NFC, but *requiring* it sounds like a terrible idea.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Chill, judging from the config they're intending for it to load modules, i mean all these file system ones are configured as modules at least, but no CONFIG_MODULES=y so I'm not 100% sure whether it...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

The mass market is already owned by gigantic players with large sums of money to burn and a huge head start, so instead you find a niche and stick to it.

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Software doesn't really seem to be their thing, and indeed by the looks of it they aren't trying to go for an integrated product type of smartphone at all.

Realistically this is probably ok, if...
