Happy for the 2 Oscars awarded to Frozen: Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song! Here’s the said song in 25 languages. I saw the movie in Finnish, and I’m looking forward to re-watching it in English for the beautiful visuals, music and story. In addition to all that, I’m addicted to the Frozen Free Fall game. The game started off innocently enough… but as this review points out: it’s "designed to be deceptively easy at first, gradually luring you into its cold, frigid heart, one level at a time." Currently stuck at level 88 at time of writing, tearing through the max 5 lives easily. As it takes time for the lives to regenerate, the upside is I can’t play the game continuously for hours on end, so I can still be productive in other parts of my life. (Well, there’s the option of paying for lives but nah… that’s the easy way out.) Let the storm rage on!
saw couple girls just now wearing #yellow and #orange jackets. didn’t manage a pic of them but reminded me of this instead: bright #cello #cases on the train last week belonging to musicians from #Ostrobothnian #chamber #orchestra
Found a nice phone/card case that fits my Jolla perfectly, and closely matches the poppy red other half. It’s available at Stockmann Tampere, and I got it for 40% off (original price 70€). The travel wallet I’ve been looking for! Or daily wallet, haven’t decided yet… Anyway there are many colour options, although Stockmann Tampere only offered orange and green (reminds me of my alma mater). Stockmann online has black and pink in stock (but not on sale). I’d like to get one in my favourite purple at some point, though they seem to be sold-out in most online shops. Probably a last season model, but what do I know, I don’t usually follow fashion trends. I’m just glad it doesn’t come with Ted Baker’s signature bow (not my style). So here you have it, an elegant and functional case for the elegant and functional Jolla, a match made in geekgirl heaven.
Vesku’s tweets about wireless charging hack on Jolla got me interested and so I had to try it myself too. After reading Jonni’s post in detail I ordered bunch of receiver pads and chargers from DX. Today I received the first batch of that order containing both a receiver pad and a charger stationfor Samsung Galaxy S3. It was supposed to be 1000mAh, but the pad really only gives out 500mAh. Oh well.
I was under the impression, that the connectors would be in wrong order for Jolla, but actually they were the same. Then again, the connectors are a bit too far apart to ensure proper connection. Also they are quite thick, so they wouldn’t fit very well between the phone and the Other half. So, I started wondering if there would be a spot in the wiring I could expose to make my own connectors.
The receiver pad had a few layers of stickers, which I had to rip off to see the shape of the conductors. And yes, there it was - a lovely looking spot waiting to be scratched open. The receiver pad also has some components on the surface, which actually sink quite nicely into the embossing below memory card. They’d fit even better, if I’d lose the rubber below SIM card, but I’m not sure, if I want to do that.
Exposing the conducting wires wasn’t enough, since the connectors on Jolla did not reach the wiring. Gladly we had a soldering iron at the office so I could simply add small lumps of solder on the pad to fix the problem and start charging wirelessly!
