Ubuntu-PS3

How cool is this: I'm typing this story directly in Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn) installed on my Playstation 3. To answer my question for you, Sony made it very easy to install a second OS on their latest console, you only need to follow like 5 easy steps to get things going, so ok, it ain't thàt groovy. There are a few things I need to figure out though:

  • My mobile phone recognizes the playstation when I try to connect with Bluetooth, but I can't seem to get any connection. 'hcitool inq|scan' always times out. If anyone is able to connect and send files with his phone, drop a line!
  • I want the sound from another receiver, not coming from my television, so I can listen to either webradio's, cd's or music stored on my other computer without having the tele on.
  • I'll probably experiment wth other window managers than gnome right now, because I can clearly see sound and video isn't always syncronized perfectly.
  • Video modes is also something I'll have to experiment with, because the extreme low refresh rate is killing my eyes (but then again, this ain't my desktop rigt?)

But now, back to Assassin's Creed!

Bluetooth baby!

I think a lot of people consider me as an advanced and up-to-date-with-the-new-tech-stuff guy. But I don't have a GPS in my car, I rather rely on good old map reading - off course, when the first commercial Openmoko is out, it's mine! Another - and allready quite old - technology is bluetooth. I don't have bluetooth capability at home, nor at work on my desktop - not that I really miss it. But here at Drupalcon, I have a laptop from work with bluetooth on it. So, during lunch today, I started experimenting with packages on Ubuntu to try and get photos, I took the last 2 days with my phone, onto the computer. apt-get install gnome-bluetooth and voila, I can finally select a picture on my gizmo, say 'send via bluetooth' and receive pictures on my laptop.
