Strawberries anyone?

There is a new video by Luovatone showing off his skills using the MyPaint application and ‘Tone’s Brush Set Version 2‘ on the Nokia N900. The video is sped up, but it is truly jaw dropping watching the drawing of strawberries take shape and the amount of detail that goes into the art.

The MeeGo Coding Competition 2011.

The Meego Coding Competition started on the 1st April 2011 and will run through to the 30th June 2011. The idea behind the competition is to get like minded Maemo/Meego enthusiasts together to share ideas and to write or code new applications for the upcoming Meego devices, including my Nokia N900. How can YOU get involved? Well, I for one love my Nokia N900 because there are thousands of great applications available for free, added to that an excellent Maemo/Meego community that offers great support. These good people have taken up a lot of their time to write great applications and so for me it’s all about giving back by donating money to the people that really deserve it. This competition is no exception. For those of us who are not programmers or developers by day or night, we can still make the competition great by donating money towards the competition prize fund. The organisers have setup a PayPal fund. Note: if you are a member of the talk.maemo.org – you can leave your username on the PayPal payment screen. There is a link named “Meego Coding Competition 2011“, which opens a small text box and you are able to add your username to it. That way the organisers can add you to the donation list. How to enter the competition? To enter, please submit your application via the...

Opera 11 is simply the best internet experience.

I installed Opera 11 for Maemo on my Nokia N900 today and have been blown away by it’s speed, super fast scrolling, panning, zooming and all the other fantastic features. As the slogan says “simply the best internet experience“. Here are some of it’s highlights: Modernized new user interface: There are subtle changes for example the old settings icon (spanner) has been changed to the Opera logo and it’s got an up arrow key representing more options. The URL area is slightly shorter and the Search bar is slightly longer and the menu options are slightly darker in colour otherwise everything on the menu is the same. Old Opera 10 interface: Major improvements in panning and zooming. There are two icons that appear at bottom of the screen (plus to zoom in – minus to zoom out) and clicking on it multiple times allows one to step through the zoom level. One can also just double tap the part of the screen you want zoomed and the screen instantly zooms in 150% or 175% or 200% or 225% or 250% or 300%. These zoom percentages can be set in the Settings area under zoom. Most notably framerates are much faster and there is no checkerboard effect ever, even when scrolling fast. If a page is long, a button appears for quick jumping to the top or bottom of the...
