iophkTwo things, it was 3.79 billion for the handset divisionSep 16 13:22
iophkthe rest is for a 10-year license on some patentsSep 16 13:23

iophkso the purchase price is not 7 billionSep 16 13:23
iophkthe other thing is that they had a good Meego product which should have been mentioned along with AndroidSep 16 13:23
oiaohmiophk: part of the down fall of Maemo then Meego at nokia is an interesting one.Sep 16 13:27
oiaohmiophk: same happened with symbian as well.Sep 16 13:28
oiaohmiophk: If nokia a main support does not have faith in something no one else can.Sep 16 13:29
iophkYeah Elop turned away from both Symbian (OSS) and Meego (OSS)Sep 16 13:33
iophkSymbian was starting to be on the way out, but had a few years left in it.Sep 16 13:33
iophkThe way he cut it loose was a disaster. Sep 16 13:33
iophkThen Meego was just starting to gain ground and compared very favorably to iPhone.Sep 16 13:33
iophkTomi Ahonen has written a lot about it.  But my concern there is that the articles are dropping key facts.Sep 16 13:34
iophkthat last one looked like an omission.Sep 16 13:34
iophkBut others have looked more like revisionism.Sep 16 13:34
oiaohmSymbian was in trouble because of lacking up stream hardware  maker support.Sep 16 13:36
oiaohmNokia never tried a symbian userspace on a Linux kernel.  In theory possible.Sep 16 13:36
oiaohmInstead Nokia took the path of converting symbian interface to QtSep 16 13:37
oiaohmHow to ruin thing completley was not demarding QT support on Windows Phone.Sep 16 13:37
iophkWindows Phone was (is) dead no matter what is done.  M$ might pump a lot of money into it, but just how much will be harder to track now that it is an in-house operation.Sep 16 13:38
iophkSymbian could have been wrapped up better so that a smooth transition could have been made.Sep 16 13:39
iophkWindows Phone will be the Zune or the Kin of the smartphone world.Sep 16 13:39
iophkI'm still not sure of the attraction of smartphones in general. Who needs a phone that has to be recharged every day?Sep 16 13:40
oiaohmiophk: I have a cheap chininse phone with larger screen than samsung note with 4 days battery life in usage.Sep 16 13:41
iophkWhich brand, if I may ask?Sep 16 13:42
iophk 16 13:43
iophkNokia is starting to dirty like M$ alreadySep 16 13:44
oiaohmiophk: annoying our own company logo is on them.Sep 16 13:44
oiaohmiophk: yes I forgot what they are when they are not customised with logo.Sep 16 13:45
iophkMaybe inside under the battery it says what it is?  That is if you can afford to turn it off and check.Sep 16 13:45
oiaohmiophk: 200 AUD without custom logo 220 AUD with custom logo.  Under battery will say foxcomm.Sep 16 13:46
oiaohmiophk: and our company name.Sep 16 13:46
oiaohmiophk: the sod is a nice duel sim phone as well.Sep 16 13:47
oiaohmandrid 4.2Sep 16 13:47
oiaohmiophk: I am really interested to see what the phone I have does with Android 4.3 that is may times more power effective.Sep 16 13:59
iophkIsn't 4.3 (jellybean) already out?Sep 16 13:59
iophkHow difficult are the upgrades to do?Sep 16 14:00
oiaohm24 July 2013 is when jellybean was offically released.Sep 16 14:01
oiaohmiophk: hardware makers updates of coruse can be 6 months latter.Sep 16 14:01
iophk 16 14:31
sebsebsebiophk: I got given some old free tech the other weekSep 16 14:32
iophkWhat's it like?Sep 16 14:33
sebsebsebiophk: what's inteersting is that someone else wants the Dbox badlySep 16 14:33
*oiaohm has quit (Quit: Konversation terminated!)Sep 16 14:38
iophkWhat's a dbox?Sep 16 14:43
sebsebsebiophk: oh some old cable or stable box or somethingSep 16 14:44

sebsebsebiophk: probably something for afterSep 16 14:51
*nj3ma has quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)Sep 16 14:51

sebsebsebiophk: thing is with someone like Linus ok see them in a talk rigbht great, butSep 16 14:53
DaemonFCI'm going to look at a 2004 Ford Crown Victoria.Sep 16 14:54
iophkI see that M$ BlackDuck is a sponsor.Sep 16 14:54
sebsebsebiophk: would we get to talk to him afterwoulds? no probably notSep 16 14:54
iophkSo is SuseSep 16 14:54
DaemonFCThen MinceR can say that I drive a tank.Sep 16 14:54
sebsebsebiophk: M$ BlackDuck? you don't like BlackDuck ?Sep 16 14:54
iophkIt promotes a M$ agenda and is stocked by M$ people.Sep 16 14:54
DaemonFCThey have one on their lot that seems to be reasonably priced.Sep 16 14:54
sebsebsebfor the Euroepan one got Suse and Samsung and what notSep 16 14:54
DaemonFCI'm hoping I don't get the one that "just needs a little TLC".Sep 16 14:54
sebsebsebiophk: right well I have a feeling going to have some Open Suse at the isntall fest since that guySep 16 14:55
DaemonFCTransmission, Lights, Chassis!Sep 16 14:55
sebsebsebiophk: going to decice on distros and such tommorwSep 16 14:55
DaemonFCB-)Sep 16 14:55
iophkMageia would be a more solid choice.Sep 16 14:55
sebsebsebyes going to have Mageia :)Sep 16 14:55
sebsebseb,but we are probably doing multi distroSep 16 14:55
iophkYou do have to think about the long term welfare of the users.Sep 16 14:55
iophkMultidistro: Ubuntu + MageiaSep 16 14:55
sebsebsebiophk: yeah, but this guy might want Open SuseSep 16 14:55
sebsebsebhe probably does so we'll seeSep 16 14:55
iophkYou'll have to work on him then.Sep 16 14:56
iophkIt's time for him to let Suse goSep 16 14:56
sebsebsebhe's used it for like 10 years or so as wellSep 16 14:56
MinceRDaemonFC: just needs a little 'car'.Sep 16 14:56
sebsebsebOpen SuseSep 16 14:56
iophkall the more reasone for him to move on.Sep 16 14:56
sebsebsebiophk: what's annoying is that LInus etc speak in morning, well if I am to actsauly go :dSep 16 14:57
iophkNew users will be overwhelmed by things you and I are  either used to or ignore.Sep 16 14:57
sebsebsebiophk: to the one next month in Edinbrugh I am not a morning personSep 16 14:57
sebsebsebthis US one is ok though :dSep 16 14:57
sebsebsebit's afternon hereSep 16 14:57
iophkKeeping their choice to one between desktops is important.Sep 16 14:57
sebsebsebnearly 3pm :)Sep 16 14:57
sebsebsebso watching the streaming works well for me :)Sep 16 14:57
sebsebsebiophk: between desktops?  UBuntu for Unity,  Mageia for everything else?Sep 16 14:57
iophkYepSep 16 14:57
DaemonFCMinceR, To Ford's credit, they did make a fuel efficient V8.Sep 16 14:57
sebsebsebyes would make things simplerSep 16 14:58
sebsebseb,but  I'll see what this guy says tommorw etcSep 16 14:58
DaemonFCHow many 4.6 liter V8s get 17/25?Sep 16 14:58
sebsebsebaltough before he was kind of like, any distro will do sort of thingSep 16 14:58
DaemonFCMy V6 doesn't even get that!Sep 16 14:58
iophkIt also allows the staff to streamline installationsSep 16 14:58
sebsebsebwhat do you mean streamline?Sep 16 14:58
iophkless workSep 16 14:58
iophkIf there are a lot of people, things can get chaotic easily. Sep 16 14:58
iophkThe simpler it is to do the installation the less potential for chaos there is.Sep 16 14:59
sebsebsebiophk: yep indeedSep 16 15:00
iophkAnother thing to think of is that you want to show off how easy an installation is. Sep 16 15:00
sebsebsebhence local repo'sSep 16 15:00
iophkthey won't do the installation themselves, of course, but it will help set the mood.Sep 16 15:00
sebsebsebthey will do installation them seles, with help :)Sep 16 15:00
iophkInterestingSep 16 15:01
DaemonFCI'm writing a check to myself because their ATM will charge me a fee.Sep 16 15:01
iophkAre tazers allowed?Sep 16 15:01
sebsebsebiophk: I think ?Sep 16 15:01
DaemonFCI'm on my mom's account at the credit union, but I don't bank there.Sep 16 15:01
DaemonFCSo their ATM will charge me, but cashing a check is free.Sep 16 15:01
DaemonFC:PSep 16 15:01
sebsebsebiophk: I think may get a distros debate tommorwo depends :dSep 16 15:02
sebsebsebiophk: alslo I have to explain about the instals more propelry how they can be done etc probablySep 16 15:02
iophkWill you have a paper brochure explaining the installation steps, so that they know kind of what's going on before they sit down?Sep 16 15:02
sebsebsebiophk: that's an ideaSep 16 15:02
sebsebsebwe could provide something like thatSep 16 15:02
sebsebsebiophk: heh heh maybe I should get them all to come here on IRC tommorow to, so they can chat to you, heh hehSep 16 15:03
iophkWhat kind of hardware can you get in terms of cables and switches?Sep 16 15:06
iophkI'm thinking that most former M$ notebooks and desktops have only 100Mbps ethernet.Sep 16 15:06
sebsebsebok time for LInuxcon US liveSep 16 15:07
iophkSo old stuff should work fine.Sep 16 15:07
sebsebsebwell something came on now :dSep 16 15:07
iophkenjoySep 16 15:07
sebsebsebwell talk isn't on yetSep 16 15:07
sebsebseb,but something to say strema is working yesSep 16 15:07
iophkThe streaming page gives me only a blank form with no labels.  The individual conference items in  the programme don't link to any streaming either.Sep 16 15:09
DaemonFCWell, I'll need to go by the ATM.Sep 16 15:12
DaemonFCI hate her bank. They're always really snotty with me.Sep 16 15:12
DaemonFC"We don't want to do that because the check might bounce."Sep 16 15:13
DaemonFCExcuse me?Sep 16 15:13
DaemonFCLady.Sep 16 15:13
DaemonFCMy checks are good.Sep 16 15:13
DaemonFCMom wonders why I won't bank there.Sep 16 15:13
DaemonFCThey treat me like shit. I'm seriously unimpressed.Sep 16 15:13
sebsebsebiophk: try this isntead then 16 15:18
sebsebseb 16 15:18
iophkIt's Flash.  :(Sep 16 15:19
iophkThanks thoughSep 16 15:19
sebsebsebiophk: yeah on ustream it isSep 16 15:19
sebsebsebiophk: site not sureSep 16 15:19
DaemonFCThe only thing wrong I see with this car is there's a small scratch or paint chip missing. On the front grill.Sep 16 15:20
DaemonFC 16 15:20
iophkA "podcast" is not so hard.  Why does the LinuxFoundation have so many hoops to hop through to listen?Sep 16 15:20
DaemonFCI'm still considering it.Sep 16 15:21
DaemonFCI might be able to repair that. They sell paint touch up kits.Sep 16 15:21
DaemonFCI could also ask the salesman if they'd fix it before selling it to me.Sep 16 15:21
DaemonFCThey are a Ford dealer, they do keep touch up paint on hand.Sep 16 15:21
DaemonFC$3,100 is still a good price assuming the car is in good condition.Sep 16 15:22

iophksebsebseb: For the installfest you'll also want to decide about installing Flash.  I wouldn't have it on any of my machines but some users will "just" want to watch Youtube.  There is the HTML5 test but relatively few videos in HTML5.  But in installing Flash you have to let them know that they are giving up a good portion of the security advantages that come with Linux.Sep 16 16:33

DaemonFCWhen you have a car salesman telling you that he can't take your money in good conscience for the vehicle you're looking at, you should probably listen.Sep 16 17:59
DaemonFCHe said that he was just going to mark them for sale to an auction. He didn't want their reputation damaged for selling cars like that.Sep 16 18:00

MinceRiirc the Vic also has poorer handling than the cars i'm used to :>Sep 16 21:24
DaemonFCMinceR, Probably because it's RWD.Sep 16 21:25
MinceRyeah, that's part of itSep 16 21:25
DaemonFCIt's hard to sell them in today's economy.Sep 16 21:25

DaemonFCPeople don't want a gas guzzler that's RWD.Sep 16 21:25
MinceRwell, i prefer AWDSep 16 21:25
DaemonFCSo the price of the cars on the market becomes very reasonable.Sep 16 21:25
DaemonFCI don't drive much.Sep 16 21:25
DaemonFCMaybe 5,000-6,000 miles per year.Sep 16 21:25
DaemonFCMinceR, The gas prices have gotten so bad that car dealers won't even take SUVs in trade anymore.Sep 16 21:27
DaemonFCThey can't find people that want to buy them, so people who bought them when gas was cheap are more or less stuck with them.Sep 16 21:28
DaemonFCUnless they practically give it away.Sep 16 21:28
DaemonFCThere's lots of SUVs on the market at really low prices right now.Sep 16 21:28

DaemonFCMinceR, Back in 2004, when I had a good job and great credit, I had 0% APR offers from Ford and GM!Sep 16 21:48
DaemonFCSo I went car shopping. Should have bought one. Then I'd be driving an '04 instead of a banged up '95 that's leaking something else every week.Sep 16 21:48
DaemonFCThe salesman was pitching Onstar, which was optional.Sep 16 21:48
DaemonFCTold him I didn't need it and that I'd like to leave that option out to save the $600.Sep 16 21:49
DaemonFCHe went back to telling me why I did need it.Sep 16 21:49
DaemonFCI told him I've made it around in about a dozen different states with a map I bought for $3 at Walmart.Sep 16 21:49
