#nptech #n2la ok folks, most online tools are designed to be self-teachable. if all those on-the-site pointers and #RTFM are insufficient and you need a “training” before moving a finger on an online tool, maybe you just aren’t smart enough.

Unimpressed with the HTC EVO 4G tested at a Sprint store:

1. It’s slow in all the annoying spots that Droid 1 is slow at. Gallery, opening message and phonebook, camera. Even with the 2.2 update. One speed improvement: adding an app to the main screen.

2. It’s too wide for me to grasp. Can’t text while biking.

3. The phone suddenly lost all signal – the bars were there, but nothing was downloading (was trying to install Google Earth) The sprint tech dude said “ok, this will need a restart”, implying that it happens often.

One thing I really want is the Sense UI, not because it’s pretty, but because it has flawless Flickr integration. All Flickr solutions out there – both Free ones and many paid ones – suck big time. Come on folks, Picasa is long dead. Who uses that anymore?

Funny how in 2006 I came up with a rally outreach ROI sheet, and people thought it was too mechanical. Now an outside expert comes in with a similar idea and gets all the credibility.

how i got to set up plantronics 470+dell dimension E520 audio on ubuntu 9.04

Playback: plug directly to front port, then choose “pulse audio sound server” (“pulse” on skype)

Recording/Capture: plug through the USB card, then choose “C-media USB audio device USB audio (ALSA)” (“c-media usb audio device (plughw:default, 0)” on skype)

On Skype, Recording does not work at all (error message: “Problem with Audio Capture”) with the below settings:
Default device (default)
headset
C-Media USB Audio Device (plughw:default,0)

With the below settings, test calls work but nothing is recorded
hda intel (hw:intel,0)
