Aug 4th 2010 7:52PM Seems fitting that this happened around the same time the G1 is no longer for sale.
Jul 27th 2010 5:50PM Mine's still going strong. The only thing really wrong with it is the compass is messed up, but that's my own fault (pro tip: a case with a magnetic clasp is epic fail, if your phone has a magnetic compass in it, lol).I remember when the G1 first came out, it took 2 months before I could afford to break my contract with Verizon, and buy the G1. It was probably my most satisfying gadget purchase ever. I got my first smartphone, which was awesome of course. But I was also suddenly free from cell phone tyranny, without having to use any hackery - previously I'd had to use BitPim (not that that program isn't great, mind you) to put wallpapers or ringtones on MY phone. Now, I could do whatever I wanted - Ringdroid was my first market download. :)
Jul 9th 2010 12:57PM @angelusp That video is a music video by the group Insane Clown Posse, who are also known simply as "ICP." It's a joke.
Jul 7th 2010 4:30PM Anyone else having Palm Vx flashbacks? :)
Jul 4th 2010 3:04AM Regarding storage: This permission WILL allow access to ALL files - the reason being that the FAT32 file system typically used on those cards doesn't support any type of meaningful permissions system. Notice that when you mount your SD card on your computer, of the files are visible to you, without you having to authenticate or anything.Even if the card was formatted with a Unix/Linux file system that supported more robust permissions, those are usually user-based, not application-based.
Jun 19th 2010 10:48AM Looks promising for my purposes. I'm normally a Linux fan, but want something capable of accelerated video for HTPC purposes, and I HATE the idea of running Windows unless absolutely necessary. This could work quite nicely. It would be my first Mac, if I do go that route.@Nilay - Pioneer Elite receiver? Nice. :) Also, the speakers - it's blurry, but that looks a lot like an Infinity logo to me?@ MattsZ - But can a cat ride it?

Jun 1st 2010 9:38PM A few questions from a G1 owner, if the editors have time:How is the battery life? are we talking Droid Eris (Hero) level? My g1 is... not so good in that respect.Is it possible to install something like Open Home?
May 28th 2010 1:00PM @Gonzie It's worth noting that Linux would also allow the easy unmounting of the hdd when not in use.This whole concept is brilliant.
May 26th 2010 6:06PM @Spiny Norman There's also the issue that VNC can be difficult to set up (especially in a secure manner) without a pretty solid knowledge of computer networking. You have to either know your machine's IP at all times, or understand how to set up dynamic DNS. For most setups, port forwarding would also be necessary. While Josh didn't specify, I get the feeling that the ideal implementation of this idea would not require the user to actually understand what's going on behind the scenes.And as Nilay pointed out, VNC-ing to your computer with anything with a significantly smaller screen requires you to use a full PC-type interface on a device that is less than optimal (to put it mildly). That's why Josh's suggestion is more concerned with the data/content, instead of the exact pixels on the screen.
