gammu.org - some period is closed


Submitted by marcin on Wed 02-Jun-2010

Like promised I have closed gammu.org in current form.

Started 1 April 2005 under gammu.net address, in April 2006 was moved into current domain (gammu.org).

First in the form of static pages, later created using MediaWiki.

I was publishing there some non GSM texts too, tried to make some phone database with info about firmware changes, versions, pictures....

Big shame, but don't worry...

What next ?

Few words from me... We're ending 2009 year. Some summary, plans and similar.

I was thinking a lot about developing for Maemo 5 (Nokia N900) platform. Unfortunately, in my opinion this is wasting time in this moment (or at least I can't pay for it in 100% from my money).

What is "PHONE FIRMWARE"?


Submitted by marcin on Tue 24-Jan-2006

'''Firmware''' is the phone's ''operating system'', the program which allows the phone to work.

A mobile phone is really just a computer which can handle voice communications between two (or more) users, and - just like any other computer - it needs programs to work. This is called the ''firmware''.

Gammu+ 0.37 is ready. What can I say ?

For example: you can make MMS receiving gateway with it now (tested on 6111).

It's very close from the state, where will be rock stable, fast and will have support for all important functions. I estimate, that I will reach it in December.

And what next ? I'm not sure. I have read about Nokia reactions for info about breaking Series 60 security. I'm not sure, if they will love software, which is faster/smaller/better than their own PC Suite.

hmmm, I have "small" dilema. I was creating Gammu over years and tried to make it as simple as possible. Later decided to leave it a little (financial and other reasons) and give control over it to very good programmer Michal. Now I have downloaded it (1.13.90) and tried to compile.

And what ?

And I CAN'T. Michal, there are many new UNKNOWN directories, when I make "cmake CMakeLists.txt", I receive 41 vcp (Visual Studio makefile) files (including old one available in tar.gz). And they don't work too good...

Post PC era -> is it really market regulated ?


Submitted by marcin on Sun 29-Jul-2012

In various places we can read, that PC (Personal Computers like notebooks and desktops) are less and less popular.

What can be reason for it ?

Standard X86 platform is of course much better and faster, but... many users complain about generally worse quality, worse screens and various "revolutionary" solutions (which allow to save few $ for manufacturers, but make a lot of problems for users).

gammu.org reorganization


Submitted by marcin on Sun 28-Mar-2010

As you probably know, I'm hosting some content (articles, materials, etc.) on the gammu.org. Some time ago I have decided, that it's not updated from longer time and additionally MediaWiki is not developed too much. I have decided to make some reorganization:

  1. moving all non-GSM content to the mwiacek.com (this page)

Light and small ? (2013)


Submitted by marcin on Mon 06-May-2013

I decided to make quick and dirty comparison of some parameters of selected OS. I measured values once, because for me it was the most interesting to get only quantity. I have selected number of bytes written/read from HDD and number of bytes sent/received over network. Why ?

People are using more and more often SSD/flash memories, which have specified number of write cycles and people are using more and more often network connections with data limits.

Here are results, I have used mainly values observed by VirtualBox functions:

Nokia top model N900 sales below 100,000 & Microsoft: 30 Million Windows Phone 7 devices will be sold by the end of 2011


Submitted by marcin on Sat 29-May-2010

Two interesting articles from last time: Microsoft: 30 Million Windows Phone 7 devices will be sold by the end of 2011 and Nokia top model N900 sales below 100,000: Gartner

My answer: first is system, which will probably not have many features known from competitors. Second is system, which was not supported correctly by own manufacturer. How could you think, that they could be successful ?
