Touchscreen is cool!
The first thing that I found pretty neat was running sugar on a touchscreen device. It really felt better, since most people that I let play with my XO and flip its screen 180 degrees naturally try touching the screen, expecting it had a touchscreen. Sugar was actually quite good with it on the Nokia.
A trip to the North and some GPS fun April 15, 2009Posted by GuySoft in Crictor, Hamakor, ITU, linux, Maemo, open source.

This Passover, I went on a trip in the North of Israel in the Golan heights.
However, apart from enjoying the beauty of nature I thought I might do a little experiment with my Nokia N810, a Linux device with a GPS receiver.
What I did was switch it on at the beginning of the tour and put it back inside my bag, ignoring it most of the time.
The result was a complete GPX file of our tour.
On the Nokia it looked nice, however I wanted to see if I can extract more data at home with the GPX file.I found 3 tools I could do with it.
