The N900 is the cellphone that I’m using since last December and I simply love it. No I’m not a Nokia fun boy, I let this kind of behavior for those who loves design despite of usability, connectivity, reliability, etc..

Well, but as the title suggests this post is just for the N900 users ;)

As you should know the weakness of this device is the battery when you use so much 3G, wifi, bluetooth and GPS. I have to recharge my device every single night to be sure that I’ll have enough power for the whole next day.

At least I had, before to find out the Autodisconnect tool. You configure it to disconnect everything that is not really being used and is saves battery.

Well it doesn’t do any miracle but at least nowadays I can forget to recharge one night without being worried during the next day.

OBS: I’m not a Autodisconnect tool developer and to be honest I’ve never seen its code. This is just a tip for the users.

It has been a while since my last post here but I’m willing to put this blog back to life and write some stuff here.

To restart it I’d like to tell that I’ve attended Akademy 2010 conference in Tampere-Finland from july 2th to july 4th and it was simply great.
It is always good to met people that you don’t know and put faces on the irc nicknames. Talking about people, Here are the group photo.
It was also good to meet other Collaborans and old friends there, which presented good stuff:
* George talked about telephaty
* Fleury came up with great new ideas for Qt and KDE styles
* Artur presented the Plasma mobile

There were other great presentations there as well.

So, what is next here in this blog?

Well, I know that we are far away from the new year’s day when people do lots of promises for next year but it is time to promise some posts here in this blog.
Some of these promises are in my todo list for a while and I hope that after promising it will force myself to write them soon.

You can wait to read here on next days/weeks about:

* linuxcon Brasil that is comming soon (Aug 31/Sep 01, where I’ve just confirmed my participation with a presentation.
* tip for N900 users to save the battery.
* Garmin Navigator impression.
* MeeGo
* Syplifying memory measurement

Not exactly on this order, but to be honest I’ve already started to write most of them while I’m in an Iberia flight to London through Madri.
