Interviews

After the Bluetooth interview a couple of weeks ago, another one popped up about codeina/Codec Buddy, starring my good friend Thomas.

In other news, I want to stab Nokia and Sony Ericsson (I stabbed Motorola a long time ago) for their inexistant proprietary protocols specs, and their sub-par AT protocol implementations. Look at the recent commits in gnome-phone-manager for proofs.

Update: I forgot to mention the interviews were the work of Jon Roberts. The interviews make a very good read if you're interested in what's new in Fedora 8.

Hey Hadess (I'm the grumpy 5500 owner), one obvious thought occured to me while reading Fedora8's BT page: you (in the large sense of the term) should try to integrate gnome-phone-manager with empathy for SMS/call notifications. So sending/receiving SMS would be like messaging, with contacts information directly fetched from e-d-s, and maybe call could be made over BT.
I'd give it a try, but as you know my phone doesn't support SMS/call notifications ;)

Is there any snowball's chance in hell any of this will work with a Blackberry Pearl?

Luis, it might work, if your device has a Serial Port or Dial-Up Networking port available.
