Nokia N900

I had yesterday change to play a little bit with Nokia N900 mobile communicator at at Expert Expo in Helsinki. This brand new Nokia smartphone that you can’t yet buy anywhere, just pre-order. This device runs on Maemo Linux operating system and worked well. This device felt much better than Nokia N97. The tough screen seemed to work better and overall feeling was that the system was considerably more responsive. Linux will rock on mobile devices. There was even a X Terminal on that device available, so Linux hacker can do different things on traditional command line.

    Are Maemo based on Linux?

    • tomi says:

      Maemo is a software platform developed by Nokia for smartphones and Internet Tablets. The platform comprises the Maemo operating system and the Maemo SDK. Maemo operating system is based on the Debian Linux operating system.

      Maemo is mostly based on open source code, and has been developed by Maemo Devices within Nokia in collaboration with many open source projects such as the Linux kernel, Debian, and GNOME. Maemo is based on Debian GNU/Linux and draws much of its GUI, frameworks, and libraries from the GNOME project. It uses the Matchbox window manager, and the GTK-based Hildon as its GUI and application framework. There are also some proprietary parts included in the Maemo operating system.

    Trying to launch an IT startup where everything is outsources sounds like a recipe for disaster…
    Is that outsourcing company you are advertising reputable or is this some kind of scam?
    The site when viewed does not look such that you would immediately start to trust their service… quite opposite to me.

    Keeping the WordPress up to date. Keeping the system otherwise safe is also good idea.
    Very often done backups are also a good idea (preferably automatic scheduled backups every day or so).

    I might also like to state that most people who find themselves with out health insurance usually are students, self-employed and people who are without a job. More than half of the uninsured are under the age of Thirty five. They do not sense they are wanting health insurance simply because they’re young as well as healthy. Its income is usually spent on houses, food, in addition to entertainment. Most people that do work either complete or as a hobby are not supplied insurance by means of their jobs so they proceed without because of the rising expense of health insurance in the states. Thanks for the concepts you share through this site.

    Hi! I just now wished to inquire if you ever possess problems with hackers? My own previous web site (wordpress blogs) ended up being broken in to we found themselves losing a few months connected with efforts because of simply no information backup. Are you experiencing any ways of force away online hackers?

    • tomi says:

      Two things to remember: make backups often and keep the wordpress up to date.
      No matter how well you keep up the site there is always possibility for hackers doing something nasty.
      Keeping backups up to date is the way to restore things back to normal without loosing to much data.
      Remember the backups! One day you will need them…

    Together with havin a great deal articles and also posts ever run into any problems regarding plagorism or even copyright intrusion? My own web site provides lots of exceptional content material I’ve both published myself or outsourced nonetheless it looks plenty of it really is popping this up all around the internet without having my personal consent. Are you aware any kind of approaches to help protect against articles from becoming taken? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • tomi says:

      I have run into any problems regarding plagorism and copyright issues.
      It has happened many times that some of the content has popped up all around the internet without having my personal consent.
      I have contacted many sites on that (nowdays do that more rarely)…
      Think what you want when contacting site you have seen your article copies. A rude takeout demand letter is not always the best approach…
      In some cases it could be more beneficial for both parties if instead of demanding taking out all content you let them keep some content on-line on their site when they acknowledge the source clearly (telling the source is your site and providing link back to your site and original article etc..). So that material on other sites can sometimes work as advertisement to your site and even boost up your search engine ratings (more links to your site).

      There are no good one fits all approaches to help protect against articles from becoming taken. Everything that somewhat effectively protects your article will be more or less cause problems to some readers and/or search engines in accessing your article. So trying to protect content usually hurts readers and make material less popular, and will annoy people. For example if you can’t easily cut&paste some parts of the text, this will reduce the possibility that bloggers will mention your article on their blogs…

      One idea that does not stop copying but will try to make the copiers to remember to mention the material source is mentioned at
