Microsoft's Nokia Plans Come Into Better Focus

Stormwatch Re:Elop (149 comments)

Go read all that Tomi Ahonen (former Nokia exec, consultant on mobile market) wrote about this fiasco. When you put all the pieces together, there is a very clear case of breach of fiduciary duty. It's either that, or the most insane case of business incompetence in the history of capitalism.

It's not killing Symbian that angers me (although the timing was horrible and hurt Nokia immensely as well). It's killing MeeGo. It had a better chance of being a successful "third ecosystem" than Windows Phone.

Stormwatch Re:Unless you've spent $300 on a GPU... (210 comments)
