Google latitude on Maemo5 (n900)

I've just received my n900 (thanks nokia) and here is a tip to use google latitude:
You just have to install firefox mobile (fennec), and go to: http://maps.google.es/maps/m?mode=latitude

This is the webapp for iphone, uses HTML5 (thats because you need firefox mobile)

Soon how to sync with google calendar/contacts, and how to have "gmail push".

First release of Speedlimit

I've wrote a very basic software that helps you to not go faster than you should. In this first release you have only three buttons to select a maximum speed, when you go faster, it warns you with a red background. I have a long TODO, please be patients.

You can download it here: http://garage.maemo.org/frs/?group_id=1017

Many TODO in my mind:
- Support miles per hour
- Sound alarm
- Configurable buttons (for different speeds)
- Make it more beautiful (bigger font, and more)

How to "enable" uPNP in canola2:

Here it is how to "enable" uPNP in canola2:

1- first install fuse and djmount (https://garage.maemo.org/frs/?group_id=681)
2- mkdir /home/user/MyDocs/.sounds/djmount
3- djmount -o allow_other /home/user/MyDocs/.sounds/djmount
4- go to canola2 settings and activate it to watch in internal memory
5- refresh library

This should work, it's not a good solution, it's not fast but it works.
I have tested it with 8 gb of music, and it works great, not so slow.

If canola doesn't show the uPNP contents some "ls" in the /home/user/MyDocs/.sounds/djmount/ or a "find" can help.

Asus EEE at 600 Mhz vs Asus EEE at 900 Mhz (part I)

I have made some benchmarks with the Asus eee 701 (really 702 but it's basically the same hardware, it only change the SSD) to view the real improvment of overclockit (put the cpu at its native clock). The benchmarks tests the SSD (disk), RAM, CPU and graphics (at the second part of this article I will post Benchmarks of games).

Here it's the hardware information:

Asus EEE 600:
Processor: Intel Celeron M 900MHz @ 0.63GHz (Total Cores: 1)
Motherboard: ASUSTeK 702
Chipset: Intel Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML
System Memory: 1002MB
Disk Space: 8GB
Graphics: Intel Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML
Screen Resolution: 800x480

Asus EEE 900:
Processor: Intel Celeron M 900MHz @ 0.90GHz (Total Cores: 1)
The rest is the same.

Software Information (the same at both):
OS: Ubuntu 8.04
Kernel: 2.6.22-14-generic (i686)
X.Org Server:
OpenGL: 1.3 Mesa 7.0.3-rc2 (i915)

And the results of benchmarks:
CPU (super-pi, less is better):

RAM (ramspeed, more is better):

Graphics (render-bench, less is better) really it's a test of cpu+graphics:

Disk (iozone):

At 900 mhz the asus EEE works faster, not only in cpu, the ram is working faster too. All the system is smoother and faster, i highly recomend to overclock the Asus EEE.
The tests are made with the great PTS 0.7.0. In the second part of this article I will made Games benchmarks.
