Please support take a visit. Good ideas with QT as well - not sure if Gumstix has enough whoomph for that but only one way to find out.

Potential Graphics layer

Thanks to Deva for his accounts of his perception of my behaviour, especially sharing with the world. :-) Anyway back to the job at hand....

Okay so one of the main things for me is going to be that i can write apps that will be half reasonable. Half of half reasonable is good graphics. Since the gumstix is really a command line SBC and we are hacking on a display we need a lightweight layer that work well. This MIGHT be it - Thanks to James McBride for lead.

a few months ago, at TagSense Inc., we were trying to design RFID readers for various standard cellphones. since we are in the rfid business, we didn't have any problem in building the reader. however, interfacing with cellphones was a major issue, not because the technology is difficult. it is because cellphone manufacturers won't expose the interface and api details without exorbitant licensing fees.

i felt oppressed. since then i have been thinking about building my own cell phone so that i can use its hardware and software in whatever way i/we want. can someone say freedom?

while i was talking the talk, Surj, the idea man, walked the walk and conceived the do-it-yourself linux cell phone project. we are attempting to create a complete open source linux cellphone named TuxPhone.

a few questions people ask us:


  1. how can you solve the original problem of creating rfid readers for standard cellphones using TuxPhone?
