@joshfowler @krzym @PINE64 I got about 4-6 hours on Debian+Phosh as of my last round of untethered trials. Low screen brightness, and screen off for good chunks of time, but with Cellular and WiFi enabled. The phone was a nice pocket warmer the whole time through, so I expect there’s plenty of room for improvement.


Shame on you . The title, intro graphic, and social media quote blurb are all misleading abuses of statistics: If you play with the interactive graph widget in the article, it clearly shows that the graph on the right puts the peak off the right edge of the plot area.

@agx (6) A hold and release button to trigger speech capture for an on-device voice assistant like Rhasspy.

@agx A great point. Here’s a few ideas I have rolling around: (1) Context sensitive media controller that pops up when you’re on a specific WiFi network. (2) A quick text entry widget that invokes a script (e.g, for quick note taking). (3) Weather for the day. (4) A summary of upcoming events in the next 24 hours (not just notifications, but a calendar page). (5) A widget that shows the output of a script (formatted as a List?).

Looking forward to this feature evolving!

@djsundog Fantastic efforts! Out of curiosity, does the update require a reflash, or is it possible to update an earlier image?


just verified for myself: the latest debian+phosh image for the #pinephone now has working phone calls, out of the box.


@agx Is it modular though or does it require modifying Phosh itself? It would be nifty if there was a nice (and well documented) interface that could be used to create custom widgets.

@agx Nifty!

How easy is it going to be to add these? It would be fantastic to be able to display calendar appointments and/or todos from taskwarrior on the lock screen.

@nextcloud This is incredible. Collaborative office documents are pretty much the only task I still proactively turn to for. After playing around with in a little bit, it really seems like a viable replacement! (and +1 for the 2-click install!)

@kyle It’s been a while since my read-through, but iirc, 1984 doesn’t really go into how they got to a point where the media twisted facts to match the govt’s narrative, everyone’s tv was always watching them, and blind rage against unassailable foes was a social obligation. Fear certainly kept their civilization in the hole once they jumped in though...

@martijnbraam Is this one of the official distros (PMOS?) or a custom build?

@nextcloud This reads a lot like my migration out of the ecosystem. The triggering event for me was killing support for the Public folder. Entirely inconsequential, but forced me to re-evaluate my dependence on closed solutions. Now, I couldn’t be happier with as a replacement for iCloud, Dropbox, and (many of my uses of) Google Docs.

@kyle On the other hand, tying attendance to the location reported by the (untrusted) operating system on an (arbitrary) smartphone seems even easier to subvert than signatures.

@agx 👏 Looking forward to having a pocket-sized laptop!
