Preview: Live Wallpaper for Maemo 5

Filed under: Released software — Tags: , , — Andrew Zhilin @ 00:04

Hello everybody.

After pretty long pause I’m happy to announce that our team is alive and still rocking hard for your amusement. And today I want to tell you about some really hot stuff for your Nokia n900.

Initially started as a project for FRUCT application competition by Tanya Makova, new name in the community and Vlad Vasiliev, who is well known as an OMWeather project leader, this application has evolved into one of the most shiny pearls on the scene. Thanks to these two people you’re now able to amaze the audience with your n900 like never before. Instead of showing static wallpapers on your desktops, now you can set almost anything from video files to XScreenSavers. Let me introduce you – Live Wallpaper. Project details with screenshots and video are after the break.

The Funny Thing

Filed under: Slight off-topic — Tags: , , — Andrew Zhilin @ 04:10

Hello everybody.

Very funny and confusing thing happened yesterday. Thanks to Flatfeet comment in my previous post bout my Mer contribution (which got unprecedented attention from the Community, I really can see that I’ve made right decision to work with Mer guys) it appeared that my wallpaper looks similar to upcoming Windows 7 wallpaper, which I haven’t actually seen until today :) At first I felt very confused and sad cause I’ve started to look like cheap copycat to some Windows stuff. But then I’ve finally googled that wallpaper and the result you can see below:


Somehow it reminds me some ad about modern HD TV, like “before/after”.

And if there are people, I think there aren’t but still, that think that I’m such a dumbass to copycat windows wallpaper and then claim that it was made by myself – I can’t help you :)

P.S.: I’m still contributing to Mer cause it’s awesome to work with such great guys :)
