Re: Jolla Troubles

I wonder if the writer fully understands the meaning of temporary layoff in this case. I guess it's more or less unique practice in Finland, at least I'm not aware that such practice exists...

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

Then refrain from saying such things in the near future.



Semantics. I was talking about handsets only. And "will be" is not the same as "has already happened". Go back, read what I said......

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

I'd start by choosing a unique name for the company. Let's call it: "The platform". This is already unique enough as well as being a good Google keyword.

That company would have to listen to the...

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

I think disruption could only occur through a revolutionary form factor or revolutionary functionality. The most likely avenue to chase in this area is the Internet Of Things; controlling and talking...

Re: Alternative history: What if Jolla never existed?

What does this even mean? Even Apple has faltered in recent (enough) history. This is perhaps as inflammatory of a response as I'd ever expect from a scorned lover. Simply stated, it could have...

Re: Discussion over the Design, Features, and Rollout of Jolla's new Tablet, Assuming that it isn't a Figment of our Collective Imagination

Why not ask instead of speculating? I mean, there's a lot of things that have happened since the crowdsourcing effort. Scaling up the OS to a tablet, updating Sailfish, updating the SDK and tools,...

Well, you wrote it's fiction, so that can certainly be. :)
But, for a less fictional history, I can tell you that while Ubuntu benefited immensely from your work, we started working on a tablet and...

Re: Solu - A new breed of computer

Hate to be "that guy" again, but in my experience, there have been as many failed and abandoned OS project as closed ones. If not more.

Re: The successor of Nokia N900 - Pyra (Well, sort of)

I have the unpopular opinion that the Neo900 is not a device I'd ever put any money, time nor hope into.

No device that's started from these forums has made it out yet despite years of hype or at...

Re: Solu - A new breed of computer

Hi guys, I've been reading this forum with interest, as I've been idling around here since the N9 and then Jolla days.

Re: Solu - A new breed of computer

If you were USAian, perhaps. If you were European we'd already had smartphones for over a decade. The genius of apple was dumbing it down enough that it appealed to a mass market, ease of use and...

Re: Solu - A new breed of computer

How so?

Touchscreens? First phone with touchscreen was launched in 1993.
Capacitive touchscreen? Invented in 60s.
Gesture based controls? Introduced in 2004 and not by Apple.
Multitouch?...
