Cellular technology history (2006 - 2007)


Submitted by marcin on Sun 20-May-2007

This text was written mainly by Marcin Wiącek, one of main authors of the software presented here. Information here was written from the point of view and knowledge of a man living in Europe. It was collected from many (official and unofficial) sources and is provided only to give a more complete historical info.

This can be treat as blog, roadmap, some Nokia related story or many other things. You can choose the best interpretation here...and probably each one will be good.

My comment to http://blog.cihar.com/archives/2007/05/15/why_do_people_buy_non_document... :

you are generally Michal right. Well documented hardware = less problems...

But: very often people buy, what they know and what is compatible with their other hardware (like memory cards). Sometimes not well documented hardware is much better than documented. I remember times of Nokia 3310. You simply didn't have cheap and so good phone...

I was playing today with latest PC Suite from Nokia (6.83) and NSU. I decided to write few words about it...

Installer: 23 MB, on HDD the same... It looks nice (better than earlier versions), but doesn't have too many functions and in many places you have info about DRM only (for example: why the hell does it read standard phone applets and waste user time, when few seconds later speak, that it's DRM protected ?). And in license you have a lot of info, what you can't with it...

Gammu+ 0.22.00 available. Released, because diff file was too big ;-) Among various bugfixes and improvements I would like to notify especially, that during restoring software inform, what from pbk wasn't restored and why.

I must say, that it's near such point, that I have everything for personal usage. For quite new phones you have:

  • pbk support (excluding caller groups, ringtones, sms lists, voice tags and few other, which are IDs for some phone memory places, everything is like in Gammu 1.09.00 or even better)

My diff file for Gammu+ became too big and I decided to release 0.21.00 faster (it doesn't have some planned things).

Few notes about this and other issues (random):

  • I'm almost happy from pbk/calendar/todo/notes quality and I almost switched my personal backups/restores from Gammu to Gammu+. This is not beta, but rather Release Candidate (when we compare to commercial packages).

MS Windows (2007)


Submitted by marcin on Fri 23-Feb-2007

These are my random thoughts about MS Windows for x86... IMHO, we can speak about few time periods:
--------------------
198x - Windows 1.x, 2.x
--------------------
1990 - Windows 3.0. First more widely accepted and used

1992 - Windows 3.1 (Janus). Only protected mode, new: True Type fonts

1993 - Windows 3.11. APM

Summary: 16-bit time. Microsoft cooperated with IBM and there was OS/2 created during this time. First tries of making graphic subsystem (there was DirectX from it created). There were first network releases (Windows for WorkGroups).

Few notes from me. Some of them are similar to previous (from previous reports) - unfortunately, I must return to them. If you're tired with it, I will give first summary for this report - it can be "there is new Gammu+ release and almost everything is around it". Now you can decide, if you want to read it or not :-)

Gammu 1.09.16 is out. The only one change is in ChangeLog - it informs, that currently releases will be done Michal. I hope, that this is good decision and project will grow faster. I will try to look into it from time to time and inform Michal, when something is wrong (or send him patches). We will see in the future, if decision was good not...
