      Keine Kommentare zu Google Pixelbook ‘Eve’ – Plain Linux

For many years now I am on a quest to find my ideal mobile computing device, aka laptop. It should be small and lightweight so that it is easy to carry, but not too small so that I can still work on it. It should have decent battery life so that I can get through a day with light use… Read more »

      Kommentare deaktiviert für Thinkpad Tablet 10 – Battery status, Audio

Good news! I finally managed to get battery readings! I finally gave up on trying to figure out what is wrong in kernel land and resorted to a userspace implementation. I think the kernel I2C ACPI operation region implementation is not really compatible with the TPT10 ACPI. After implementing my small userspace solution I now have a very vague idea… Read more »

Android “root” – Neues Spielzeug Ideapad A10

Vor ein paar Tagen haben ich mir ein neues (gebrauchtes) Spielzeug auf eBay geschossen, ein Lenovo Ideapad A10. Das ist eine Mischung aus Android Tablet und Netbook, also ein Android Tablet mit Tastatur, Touchpad und Touchscreen.
