A friend of mine sent me a link today, to a post from some guy who codes for a living in Munich. This fellow reached a point where he decided programming from a laptop was too fraught with peril (losing files, noise, etc) so he transitioned to an iPad + Bluetooth keyboard + remote unix box situation. He does all his work from an iPad now. This just blows my mind.
I’d like to take this opportunity to go back to this site’s roots and post something technical.
Work got me a Galaxy Tab 8.9, the new Samsung tablet that just came out. It’s really sweet and awesome, but I needed to edit the hosts file on it, so that meant I needed to root the device. For posterity, these are the steps I followed. They’re a little technical and assume you’ve used adb before.
Most of my readers won’t understand but I want to let everyone know that today man segfaulted on me. This makes me sad.
