well....
THAT kind of burning platform I couldn't have helped with...
BUT...a controlled premature Elop burn would have gotten rid of the catastrophe before it had occurred ...

and we seem to be almost ready to disembark the maemo5 survival craft and get back onto a proper Leste based seaworthy vessel shortly...

woo hoo...
I'm all excited ...

In 2018, I wonder what all are we doing wrong to where our concept of an ideal device places it in the hands of the niche, the homegrown or the crowdfunded.

Perhaps the problem starts and stops with people like us.

Just a random thought and perhaps a few beers factor in as well

possibly it is us...

In fact ...most definitely it is us...

If as was mentioned I don't know how many times ...
that nature favours the indolent, and lazy...
sure natural selection is there and working...
and evolution as well..
but
as well with our species ..we can come up with something really great...
and turn it into the lowest common denominator quickly...

I think tackling the problem from both ends is a good idea..

Problem 1
Too many garbage devices on the planet...
smothering and impeding really fine work that is attempted..

Problem 2
Too many people ...( I won't set criteria, or the bar at which we should debate getting rid of "excess cargo" on this planet ) that are using said junk devices...

There is a direct and easy to see line between the two...

I do however have a solution..

All it takes is just one successful start up and we can sort this universal problem out...

And it doesn't have to be a phone that has everything packed into it...

All it needs is one function....
a fun function...
what I have absconded from the term...
"Laser Pointer"
and we can "weed all the excess drones out of the bee hive"...(so to speak)

Simply "point" your phone and "tag" the offending individual / useless device .
The real expense and beauty of the system isn't IN the phone itself...
It is the uploaded exact geo - tag (of the offending device / individual) to the real cost...
the Satellite in orbit that acquires said uploaded coordinates ...and then promptly "lasers" the location to a fine ash.

2 problems solved in one...
a global population problem solved.
enough room for proper devices to flourish with folks intelligent enough to use them...

and fun too..

the " Laser Pointer"

I am sure SpaceX or any of the plentiful start ups could help us out with the satellite launch..at a reasonable price (considering the money that has been thrown at phone startups ...putting a Death Satellite in orbit is cheap...)

hmm



just having it now (morning coffee that is..)

My solution is just way too easy ...
If we don't do it first..
Android or Iphone will...
and WE may shortly be the cute little piles of ash on the ground...
we need to "up our game" here ...people..


get rid of pesky line-ups!
fun for the whole family!
relieve stress and work place tedium!
enable growing room for proper phone start ups!
and save the planet in an environmentally friendly way!

Laser Pointer!

Did you even read the story of how this youyota project was launched. The story behind it is already legendary even compared to some really weird posts I have created over the years .

Still really sad to see so many jolla supporters lose money again.

If their input offends you, add them to your ignore list.

Ooooooh!
Is that a threat?
Please tell me it is....
And if any wish to join in and turn this solo into a choral arrangement...
Please raise your voices...
don't be shy...

I don't mind...
Just please give me a 24 hour heads up ...
on implementation of said proposed ban on me...


I may lark about now and again...
But I do alot more around here than some who's crowning achievement is to threaten banning...
Not to name names...

I do think I have a right to voice an opinion...
If it be topically or technologically relevant...
And I most certainly do see a great deal of opinion here at TMO all the time...in just about every thread...
And it isn't always topical or on tangent either.

As much as some may desire or actively get a persons posts deleted, a reprimand or a banning ...
Say for example ..
the case of Dave and his opinions on the Jolla fiasco he went through...
and people piping up and mods involved and such...
I should have piped up then...
and that is a shame on me...for not sticking up for him when he had and has ..every right to voice his complaint, concern and issue....
repeatedly if necessary...

Well I am definitely going to do so now.
Dave has most definitely been given the ugly end of the pointy stick.

If Dave's repeated mention of the crap he went through gets censored or deleted or he gets reprimanded for it ...
and he hasn't been (in my view) excessive in his statement...
then I will speak up...in support...every time.

People may wish such statements as his experience with Jolla or other devices ...silenced...

But that is hardly fair and unbiased ...
His stated experiences are as much a warning as anything else...
and should be classed as such..

Of course not everyone went through what he or others may have ...
But it does not invalidate what he went through or others went through.
Censoring or deleting or banning is not the answer..

(I do believe in finding solutions to problems not just voicing problems...and not offering solutions..)

At worst ...

Either moderators should simply condense his valid issues into a single post to save thread space...

Or....
A suggestion would be..

we have plenty of threads about how great such and such a device or platform is...
and we have plenty of threads about how "whatever" has this issue or that issue...

But we don't really have any dedicated threads concerning our overall concerns or issues or terrible experiences on specific devices / platforms / etc..or how terrible the after purchase service is
to have such posts moved to...

Some may think it is counterproductive to the delicate state or health of "..." device / platform / etc..

I do not share that view...
that turns this place into a place of "selective" knowledge ..that is detrimental to us all.

Keep up that kind of widespread behaviour here...
and believe me...
you won't have to ban me
I will walk away from this place.
