How do email notifications work for POP3 and IMAP accounts on the G1 phone?

 If I set up the supplied email client on the G1 phone for a POP3 or
IMAP account, can I configure it to periodically check the mail server
for new mail (in the background)? If so, will the system display some
sort of notification message telling me that I have new mail?

I ask this because I don't have a G1 phone yet (I'm currently using
the emulator for app development), and I'm checking to see if I can
dump my Moto-Q phone (WM5 OS) and effectively use a G1 phone for my
daily activities. Your comments are appreciated.

Thanks,

1. Sorry, the player does not support this type of audio file ERROR

Hi,

I've recently noticed an error popping up with audio playback.  I
can't reproduce it consistently, but I want to make sure it isn't
related to my app (which does audio playback).  The error is that
occasionally my MP3 player (I use MixZing Lite but I've seen it in the
native players as well) will simply stop working, and I'll get the
following message in a toast:

"Sorry, the player does not support this type of audio file."

Occasionally after this error occurs, my application (which is a
streaming media app) will throw a MediaPlayer error and stop
functioning.

Has anyone observed this problem and if so, might you have a
suggestion?

Many thanks,
Brooke

2. "geo fix" loses longitude/latitude precision

When using "geo fix" from the console, some information is truncated
due to poor casting in the code of external/qemu/android/console.c.  I
came across that problem when plugging in coordinates for my house and
realizing whatever location was being sent to the emulator was off by
a few blocks.

The stralloc_add_format statements were changed in order to print the
floating point values most accurately.

Plus, the stralloc_add_format for altitude was changed to %.1lf (long
float/double) instead of %.1g.  g may use scientific notation and I
don't think that's what they want when there's only one digit after
the decimal point.

The original code was (~ line 2000):
---------------------------------------------
        /* then the latitude */
        hemi = 'N';
        val  = params[1];
        if (val < 0) {
            hemi = 'S';
            val  = -val;
        }
        deg = (int) val;
        min = 60*(val - deg);
        val = val - min/60.;
        stralloc_add_format( s, ",%02d%02d.%04d,%c", deg, min, (int)
(val * 10000), hemi );

        /* the longitude */
        hemi = 'E';
        val  = params[0];
        if (val < 0) {
            hemi = 'W';
            val  = -val;
        }
        deg = (int) val;
        min = 60*(val - deg);
        val = val - min/60.;
        stralloc_add_format( s, ",%02d%02d.%04d,%c", deg, min, (int)
(val * 10000), hemi );

        /* bogus fix quality, empty satellite count and dilutions */
        stralloc_add_str( s, ",1,,,," );

        /* optional altitude */
        if (n_params >= 3) {
            stralloc_add_format( s, "%.1g", params[2] );
            last_altitude = params[2];
        } else {
            stralloc_add_str( s, "," );
        }

---------------------------------------------
Please fix the code to the following.

---------------------------------------------
        /* first, the time */
        stralloc_add_format( s, "$GPGGA,%06d", last_time );
        last_time ++;

        /* then the latitude */
        hemi = 'N';
        val  = params[1];
        if (val < 0) {
            hemi = 'S';
            val  = -val;
        }
        deg = (int) val;
        min = 60.0 * (val - deg);
        stralloc_add_format( s, ",%02d%07.4lf,%c", deg, min, hemi );

        /* the longitude */
        hemi = 'E';
        val  = params[0];
        if (val < 0) {
            hemi = 'W';
            val  = -val;
        }
        deg = (int) val;
        min = 60.0 * (val - deg);
        stralloc_add_format( s, ",%02d%07.4lf,%c", deg, min, hemi );

        /* bogus fix quality, empty satellite count and dilutions */
        stralloc_add_str( s, ",1,,,," );

        /* optional altitude */
        if (n_params >= 3) {
            stralloc_add_format( s, "%.1lf", params[2] );
            last_altitude = params[2];
        } else {
            stralloc_add_str( s, "," );
        }
---------------------------------------------

This code fixes the issue.
