After all the iPhone hype today, Meethune sent me this link that pretty much sums up my attitude these days. Seriously. The iPhone is sub-par hardware with a shiny user interface. I’ll stick with my E71 for now, and upgrade to an E75 or N97 later in the year and continue to point and laugh laugh when ‘upgrades’ are rolled out for very basic features.
Been playing with Banshee over vaction and got frustrated I couldn’t use it’s automagical conversion for my E71 or N810. Started poking around with the Hal information files and discovered it wasn’t nearly as difficult as I thought to make it work. The N810 was a bit tricky since it shows both the internal and external memory cards as mountable volumes and Banshee will only use the first. Drop the fdi files (E71, N810) into /etc/hal/fdi/information/ and all should Just Work.
Note: These files assume you’re keeping music and playlists in the Music and Playlists directories on the memory cards. If your setup is different, edit accordingly.
