It's been a long while since I was doing any personal coding projects and even longer since the last time I gave much thought to the development environment and tools that I would use. However, that time is upon me again...
I had toyed with the idea for a while, and even written a post some time ago suggesting that my next phone would like be an Android one. A couple of weeks ago my n900 decided to stop booting at all, and I had to send it away for repair. While it was away I borrowed a G1 from a friend, and got to spend a week with it.
One of the things which I like about Maemo is the way they arrange an application repository structure go with a development cycle of an app. Rather than simply writing something, and making it available in an appstore when you've made it 'perfect' there is a tiered structure.
I recently watched a really interesting you tube video about drive.
Recently Nokia released the much awaited pr 1.2 firmware for the N900, and among the many bug fixes and tweaks, came the ability to easily rotate applications to portrait by hitting ctrl+shift+r, then closing the keyboard and rotating to portrait.
