Having the I-phone for a few days I'm staggered at the power this little phone has. I can run Google Earth in full 3d at a phone. So if it can do that it also can run Oolite I think. So here's a chance to port
But try lying down on the bed with the phone upside down...
You quickly learn to disable the tilt sensitivity thing when using google Earth..
Yes my Wife Got one now.,. Its still restricted though in every way... for example it cannot share images with anything but Iphones and PCs(or oyu have to transmit it via facebook),
But it cannot send the photo to a Sony Ericson for example over bluetooth.. Something all other Smart phones have been able todo for years (mine for example is about 4 years old)
You cannot plug it into Windows like you can with Sony Ericsson or Nokia and explore the memory with Explorer or some other path/file finding tool. and clean up all the stuff you do not want anymore..
still to many pitfalls and inconvenience issues for me to think that this phone as anything but a large Touch/screen that favours it.. because all the 3D stuff is not new to me..
I have had 3D games on this K800I for the past 4 years, and if Google Earth was written for it.. I could probably use that too..
i know for a fact that the Ipods "innovative" selector button was taken from an B&O design who in mundane usual Danish Fashion, did'nt care to register as a patent.. So UK you are not alone... Denmark is just as good at making good inventions that are then "borrowed" by the USA.
in fact a lot of inventions relies heavily on imported knowledge. which is usually just another term for industrial espionage
While the genius strokes that sole inventors sometimes come up with, are ignored by the larger companies or the inventor is presented with a ridicules offer that makes them reject their offer at all..
A firms attitude towards new stuff from out-house is usually not that good, only in house stuff works.
That for example happened to that dynamo radio inventor in UK.. He is one very bitter man towards the UK electromechanical industry.
The inventor of that Dyson vacuum cleaner did'nt have it to easy either.. As far as I know have it not been for some japanse investor, it might never have taken off..
The patent system is designed to be of such that it keeps down the little man and upholds the big cooperations.. Nothing new there..
