Topic: BUGbase / Source for high-capacity MMC Micro cards?

I don’t completely understand why Bug can’t use SD cards or something newer then MMC (and less diverse). I get that it may be difficult to find non-proprietary parts for some things (thus the hiro-p edition & no onboard wifi) but isn’t the SD format an open format. no really tell me, I don’t know.

on another note though I had though I read a feed on a micro-sd to mmc converter. I am still searching my history for it but I think I saw one.
Maybe it was a very real wishful dream. it has happened before; a week or so ago I had a dream that I was in CES and they just gave me a BUG out of the blue… Then I woke up :(

Topic: Meet & Greet / ...waiting in germany

No forensic department, but we are opening a mens clothing division so I will get to use manschettenknopfel in daily conversation. At last!

There is a lot of crossover between the languages that I’ve seen in my own experience. I never thought about homepage before, I think I would have attempted ‘hausseite’ first ;)

didn’t know that bug labs has a forensic department ;)

well, in germany it’s easy, whenever you don’t know the german word, you use the english one, most of the time it’s used anyway, and if not, it’s just cool new slang. some weird freaks try translating words like "homepage" with "Leitseite", which makes me think of nazi-germany, but not a word anyone would use of free will. So why translate it at all, when everybody understands the meaning of the word homepage in the first place.

you’ll probably understand what i’m talking about when you try to expand to new markets with foreign languages ;)

I needed help on ‘shipping’, ‘user’, and ‘community’. Surprisingly they don’t cover those words in German 101, but I still remember how to tell someone they are under arrest – ‘Halt, Sie sind verhaftet’. That one comes in handy a lot.

I also remember the word for ‘cufflinks’, but can’t seem to remember more practical nouns like ‘desk’ or ‘chair’. Go figure :)

hehe, your translation of "shipping" was hilarious, babelfish helped you a bit on that? :)

when i finish my semester i’ll probably find some time to dig into the realms javabugging. until then i tell everyone about this product, and have some thoughts on what kind of software could support the true innovation of this modularized object.

Topic: Applications / Can i run Android on the BUGbase?

Couldn’t have said it better myself Kevin…good post. In summary the BUGbase as a hardware platform should in theory support the Andriod OS. The notion of modular hardware and services, to my (limited) knowledge does not play into the Andriod platform, and as such that type of functionality would not be available via an Andriod’ed BUG.

Hallo Tueksta, wie gehts?

Das freut mich Sie hast BUG schon gefindet, wilkommen zu unser Gemeinwesen! Unser ersten Kaufer ist der Java Programmierer, aber wann wir haben mehr applications hier, es ist mehr einfach fur alle leute gebrauch machen von BUG.

Wir sind nicht jetze zu Deutschland schiffahrt, hoffentlich wir sind nicht zu viel langer.

Bitte entschuldigen mein furchtbar Deutsch, ich habe nicht fur vielen jahr gesprochen!

Tchuss,
Melinda
