Re: Google Home and LMS

Yes [ have dots and echo, and now a home mini. The biggest difference is the sound quality of the mini vs. the dot. Much better, and it has a basic equalizer. It also makes fewer errors in responding. However, the menu of apps/skills is much less than Alexa. Another plus for LMS users is that it ca...

Re: Ubuntu / Xubuntu for the O2 Joggler.

I think that's expected Andrew , I don't think it's actual errors , just the build sorting itself out on boot up , if it works once it's booted I wouldn't worry , I have always seen that also .

Re: ICS installed on Internal Flash!

It's scary how these things disappear after all the hard work that goes in to them .
I'm currently after the last Joli OS build and the last Linux Mint that was done but they are AWOL also :-(
