A web browser for the Raspberry Pi


As I previously mentioned, Collabora has been working with the Raspberry Pi Foundation on various projects including a web browser optimised for the Raspberry Pi.

It looks like Santa Claus arrived early for the Collabora employees N900 pyramid, and sadly some of them didn’t arrive yet

Contacts on Maemo


After the Maemo Summit the details on the address book application and framework in Maemo 5 are finally completely public so I can openly talk about what I worked on during the past year and, even better, I actually have a smartphone that runs this software!

New job


Everyone on Planet GNOME is starting a new job, so now it’s my turn: tomorrow I will move to Cambridge (this Cambridge, not one of the other ones) where I will work for Collabora. It’s sad to leave so many friends here but I will work on cool technologies like Telepathy, Cambridge is very nice […]
