Facebook on your screensaver.

Having just moved to a new place (Helsinki) I don't really have that much to do yet. So what do I do on a Sunday afternoon? Lazy programming - that's what!

The goal: To have facebook on my screen saver.

The result: Any iPhone page on your screensaver.

Why? Because it's so much easier/faster to write than an actual facebook applet.

What is it? It's a QWebView that identifies itself as an iPhone, placed on Plasma. Configurable with different "phone themes", and select any page you want.

Trippy Introduction

One one of the neat perks of Nokia aquiring Trolltech was that we all got cool new phones. Most chose the neato n95, which is effectively a camera with calling functionality. It takes great quality pictures, and thanks to its internal GPS, is able to geo-tag the photos with the coordinates of where it was taken. The question then of course is what will you do with all these photos and their metadata? A couple of KDE apps make it possible to view a selected photo on a map, but I wanted more. Enter Trippy!
