To quote sargent schultz, " I know nothing"
The truth and honesty are getting very hard to find.
I do look forward to the droid, just to get away from MSFT,
However, it is like jumping from the pot to the fire.
My 928 is still working hard in spite of the abuse it gets. It took Verizon three tries to give a good phone. I can see how other people may have given up on faulty phones at the beginning. Verizon kept insisting on giving me refurbished phones after the first one clunked out.
On another note, I am having a time to get my broker to instruct the Finns to return the second half of the witholding. That has not pleased me any.
rouget, what gets me is the fools that bought the other phones.
Today again I dropped my 928 for the Nth time, this one of the bicycle into hard cement, and the thing keeps on working.
I did not know this peculiar aspect of american politics.
It goes very well together with Manifest destiny.
Their true advantage may come from a concept foreign to the California boys. New developments do not have to force obsolete the present technology. As a matter of fact, the new superior developments should be able to amply accommodate the older versions, instead of forcing you to "buy" the new device.
In the west coast, the remnants of manifest destiny are very deeply ingrained.
This comes across in their thinking that anybody else is stupid and cannot see that Fox con and not Apple is the one making the phones, and that NOK is the one that pioneered the industry and has loads of know how from manufacturing, design and development of IP, integration of new issues ( mapping well before Google) etc.
Fox Con will jump at the prospect to capture a more fair portion of the huge mark up that Apple has attained.
By now, in this world of no IP, anybody can marry the advantages of friendlier OS and coupled with the reputation that NOK still has, and come with a truly better connected portable multifaceted micro computer.
I cannot wait to get my hands on the new version of the 1020 that Verizon never made available.
That would be a God send.
Last night Charlie had a VR talk with a bunch of the California people. Half hour or so, and not a word about NOK.
It is baffling how they can hide their abusive monopolistic scheme and device tactics and the public buys their baloney.
They buried the best maps, have taken the IP of the internet of things without shame or trepidation.
What else are they withholding until they can implement their second rate alternatives. At least Apple has paid some royalties.
I recently run into Rachel Andueza in U pipe. What a singer. Then again, the same thing it is hard to get to her inspite of her fantastic voice. You have to do an specific search.
By the way the 925 tablet rendered her very well. I remember when they had blocked the videos.
I am well satisfied with my NOK devices even with all the traps that have been set against them.
However, Haidamus, confuses me. Why exclude the phone from connecting people?
I though the essence was the connected micro computer. Apple so much as demonstrated it with the ease of use of their os.
It is sad that MSFT abbdicted to Android instead of developing the easy to use os for the great devices NOK did put out. The great cameras, rugged, and coupled with great mapping.
It hard, to this day, to grasp why and for what they destroyed that great foundation in broad day light.
The only worse thing is to have to pay capital gain taxes to same fellows that have aided and abetted the destruction of a once fine fine company.
Good call on India's part.
What is the value of of a faded fad.
I have come to really like my well worn 928. It took Verizon three or four tries to deliver an un refurbished phone that has now work as well as a MSFT device could.
I would buy another NOK phone if one was available.
A while back, I bought into DOW thinking that ultralight vehicles(resins) and lithium powered EV would be hard to beat.
I was too far ahead of the game. It is coming though.
The od/even number of licenses has been in place in Santiago for years. It forced many people to have more than one car. Air pollution still a big problem and getting worse in spite of having prohibited the use of firewood etc.
I wonder, what the impact of a collapsed road infrastructure contributes with the endless traffic jams.
