RE: Have you told your local/national paper about UBports?
@hummlbach I have told the Danish paper "Information" about it. But I don't see the problem. I only think that more people telling the same papers about it will make the papers in question take the "story" more serious.
Have you told your local/national paper about UBports?
I have done that today. Not the big newspaper (that will probably be tomorrow) but the magazine that my alternative-encouraging bank publishes. Why? because they have a reach to people that might be interested in the idea of a collectively run OS, that is an alternative to Google and iOS.
Just a simple thought - but one so obvious that others might have forgotten about it. When we publish stories like this in IT magazines, there is a risk of preaching to the choir, or to the lions. Neither will get the word spread.
And it seems to me that there is a good story to be told here, from a journalistic perspective, about how the project originally was dropped, but then revived and now even has moved beyond the place where it was left off.
That might help create the community buzz that will make more "laypeople" (such as myself) aware of the benefits of Ubuntu Touch and in turn, push some of the hardware manufacturers (such as FP) to think more actively about joining forces with UBports.
RE: "The" Bluetooth Thread
Using 16.04/rc installed yesterday on Nexus 5, no major Bluetooth problems for me. Sometimes takes a couple tries to connect but seems to use high fidelity profile by default and switches output as soon as connected. Music player works really well with my 20+ GB MP3 collection too. Shows album covers from folder.jpg rather than demanding every song have the same image embeded, for example.
Funny - I am running the same, also on a nexus5 - but my Bluetooth can't seem to discover any devices at all... Tried it with my radio yesterday, and it didn't show up on the list. Even if both were on and no other devices were using Bluetoooth.
RE: Nexus 5 Battery charging is extremely slow and inconsistent in progress
I'm having similar problems in my Nexus 5 running 16.04rc - I tried using a different charger - the one from my Huawei p9 (checked that it had same output voltage) - and now it seems to be better.
