I have both the iphone 3g (1 week old) and a few zaurii. The iphone does replace my zaurus for the main reason I bought a zaurus. It is now my primary PDA. It is the start of the convergeance device I have been waiting for. There is a telnet client for it, but I'm really waiting for an ssh/sftp client. I miss kdepim pi, but the iphone syncs with my macs easily.

The zaurus still has its uses. Just the other day I used it to minicom into a couple of MGE UPSes and I will keep bringing it into work, but I will no longer take it with me every where.

I haven't performed this operation, but this might require some more detailed explanation from you to see what may be missing.

My son is 5. He has cousins 8, 10, 16 and 18 and they all like the DS and the Wii. The nintendos are more family oriented, yet they still appeal to teenage boys as well. I also have the ps3 and ps2 which are definetly for teenage boys (just like the xbox), but the appeal is narrower and can be more adult oriented. The picture on a ps3 is very nice with the added feature of bluray (if that's what you like/want). I've read a psp can control the ps3 remotely through the internet.

Yikes! The battery cost at trisoft is not trivial. joeabbott, can you pm me the price of the battery from dynamism?

xjqian, somebody else PMed me for it, but your number 2 in line if I decide to sell it. I sold my sled a long time ago. If these are the cost of replacing the 6000 battery, then I'm more incline to sell it.

I must have lost touch a bit. I guess streamlinecpus is no longer around. I'll probably try trisoft. The 760 battery (from my original 5500 maybe) is starting to bulge a bit too. The 760 I will still replace the battery, but I'm transferring server functions to the mac mini. I'm now coming to the conclusion that I don't want a lithium ion device on 24/7.

thanks speculatrix,

I never thought of the 6000 as a dead duck, but it has always been an extra toy for me and I figure somebody may be able to put it to better use. If a battery isn't expensive, then I may keep it as a toy.

So I'm watching TV tonight and I noticed the 6000 wasn't lying flat on the table. The battery had bulged. I assume this is dangerous to use anymore (kinda scared it may shoot flames). I'll try to safely discard the battery (city hazardous waste dump?) tomorrow.

I'm now at a crossroads. Do I buy another battery (if it can be found) or do I sell what's left of the 6000? I still have the 760 server and my everyday 3100. Any suggestions?

how long did you let it sit plugged in? If the battery was totally discharged it wouldn't even show a charging light.

could you describe to us what procedure you are using to flash the cacko rom? It is hard to troubleshoot what you may be doing wrong if we don't know what you are doing.

Woops! I forgot to say "welcome to the world of the Z"

This may replace my Z in the category of a carry every where gadget (pda phone). I'll wait for the 3g version they say is coming (currently only edge) and I must be able to access the commandline. I'm curious as to the cpu and ram. I am disappointed with the screen resolution and battery time. For any serious keyboard input, I would hope you could use a bluetooth keyboard. The Z would just be relegated a portable computer.

Sure it doesn't have alot of things the Z has but has the things I like (phone, osx, internet, bluetooth, 4GB hdd, 2MB camera and unix/linux)

Thanks. I saw those drivers before and I wasn't sure if those were the latest or what keyboards would work with it. The keyboard suggestion looks like it will work.

Hello all,

So my sister has my old 5500 and I was thinking getting her an ir keyboard. I've looked at some older threads about pocketop and belkin, but what is available today that will work with little install? I think She's still running the tkc rom on it.

http://www.tgdaily.com/2006/11/29/marvell_...hans_processor/

Some more update:

There is much more potential in this processor - according to a presentation in August 2005 at least 1.25 GHz - but Marvell, which completed the $600 million acquisition of the Xscale processor business earlier this month, believes that there is simply no need for that kind of processing power in handheld devices today. For now and the near future, 624 MHz and perhaps 806 MHz in some high-end devices will be it.

In fact, other processor features may be much more important to help the chip to become more successful than its predecessor. Marvell claims that Monahans has made quite some progress in the areas of Multimedia capabilities, mobile Internet performance and battery consumption. Perhaps most significantly, the chip is able to run H.264 video, encoded at 3 Mb/s, at 30 frames per second and a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels (VGA). Other new features include the support of up to 5 megapixel digital cameras and, according to Marvell, and "hourglass free" web experience, which promises load webpages up to 50% faster than Hermon.


As its predecessor, Monahans is also capable of adjusting its clock speed between 104 MHz, 208 MHz, 416 MHz and 624 MHz, but apparently has received better fine-tuning in using the different clock speeds for specific applications: For example, playing MP3 files only requires 104 MHz, while loading webpages is accelerated at 624 MHz. All Monahans versions include Intel's Wireless MMX2 instruction set, but - similar to desktop and notebook processors - will differ on features such as cache. For example, only the PXA320 will integrate 256 KB L2 cache. Just like its predecessors, the third-generation Xscale processor is still based on a core that is based on 90 nm ARM technology.

Arnie,

What is wrong with one of the sharp rom deviants? As mentioned before there is a cacko rom for the 5500 or the ol' tkcrom. It should be relatively stable and have added functionality. I can't comment on mp2, but I find the latest mplayers for the sharp rom to be very functional.

Thanks Koen. As long as we can get pda sized devices operating comparably to a p4 desktop, I'm all for it.

vfp=virtual floating point? IIRC the current xscales don't have proper floating point and OZ and pdaxrom had to make their own software float. Is this an assumption that this new chip also does not or something else?

edit: I found "vector floating point"

http://www.tgdaily.com/2006/11/10/marvell_intel/

"One of the first products to come out of this acquisition will be a new processor, previously code-named "Monahans", which will succeed the current "Bulverde" Xscale PXA270 generation. Monahans was first demonstrated in August of 2005 with a clock speed of up to 1.25 GHz with a promised performance capability that reaches into Pentium 4 territory, while consuming substantially less power.

Monahans, which was part of Intel's Hermon cellphone platform, is expected to be complemented by a Shader Model 3.0 capable graphics engine that is based on Imagination Technologies' PowerVR SGX blueprint. The SGX supports OpenGL ES 2.0, D3D Mobile, Open VG, Open GL 2.0 and DirectX9+ running under Linux, Symbian, WinCE and Windows Mobile OS. The fillrate of the chip ranges from 200 million to 1.2 billion pixels per second at a clock speed of 200 MHz. Polygon performances is rated at 2 to 13.5 million polygons per second."

most influx of new owners happen with the launch of a new zaurus and many current owners have their "setup". If an exciting new zaurus was announced, you would see more activity. Also many of the things people need answer for have already been answered.

Is there a port knocking client for the Z? I think knock is the main one and my initial searches have not shown any answers.

I'm toying with the idea of doing a remote sync/backup to the mac mini initiated using port knocking. Currently the only ssh port available to the internet from my home network is through the 760. I want to sync/backup directly to the mac, but I do not want that port open 24/7.
