He walked away with millions and a divorce. That's a typical CEO.
Seriously though, Nokia had crippled its ability to deliver long before Elop arrived. It's only when serious competitors came on the scene did Nokia realise the dire situation they were in.
His memo was a complete fucking disaster, but the issues described in it were not his doing.
I think it looks crap
Why are the icons so massive? Linux desktops always love to waste screen real-estate.
I don't see how negative equity should be used as a emotional bargaining chip. When housing markets collapse people who made unwise investments MUST be burned. Otherwise people will not think twice about getting in that position and will assume everyone else will bail them out, either through artifically high house prices or receiving taxpayer funds directly. It *will* all eventually collapse at some point, and when it does, it'll affect everyone simulateously. Just look at what happened in Ireland.
The government mortgage guarantee scheme was a terrible, terrible idea. It's a bluff.
Governments should have nothing to do with the private property market at all.
Re: Can't say I blame them
Oh I have used it in the past 8 years, did you deliberately ignore my comment about having to reinstall it when I changed the graphics card?
Oh and the update to Trusty failed mid-way too and, yup you guessed it, complete reinstall... to Windows7 and VMs. Never looked back.
Sorry I upset you with facts.
Can't say I blame them
Maybe someone had to reinstall Ubuntu after doing something as simple as changing graphics card...
Linux works perfectly well as guest VM OS on a Windows host. That's how I do all my dev.
'anam' is also Irish for 'name'
People still trust that?
Don't consumer-grade GPS chips stop working when they detect you're travelling above a certain speed and/or altitude, to stop terrorists from making their own guided missiles?
Migrated from Be too
And to be honest I've not noticed any difference once Sky sent me out a new router. My old Be one started dropping once I got my new static IP. It's not that bad. The 'no Sky TV' fee is a bit cheeky.

F**king sweet! Mid install
You're still going to get jerky video recording due to frame dropping because of SSD card latency, if you use that to store your media.
Who the hell are these bureaucrats to tell a private company that's struggling how to run it's business?
Perhaps the lobbying-trolls have been at work behind the scenes
That article sounds interesting
Re: Excuse me India
Self esteem? In a country with an disgraceful caste system that no-one talks about?
My mate Dave had Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion successfully installed and working on VMWare Player. I *believe* this Service Pack will prevent your VM from booting even though it downloads and installs.
The Chinese... a great bunch of lads
Hopefully this'll be jobs for the best, not jobs for Chinese abroad.
It's probably a system so complex you can find anything you're looking for. Has anyone found a climatic process related to the Golden Ratio yet?
Come on, no government, 'Western' or not, desires anyone to have any privacy
"We don't multitask too well, but we do one task at a time and do it well"
I recently moved from a very large corporation culture to a small (< 30 people, 5 of which are infrastructure/software engineers) startup and the ability to drop everything a work on something else, while undesirable, is a total must. We try to be Agile but there are times when Just Get It F*****g Done overrule and sprint plan. I couldn't see an 'Aspie' ever working in these conditions, so are they resigned to large process driven corporation culture where politics also probably come more into play?

Re: Stuck in the past
You're not a FireFox user then
I thought facebook was subject to irish law, or something? Wasn't there a previous story about a company refusing to be served papers because the local law didn't apply to them... Or something...
Re: Seriously, what's the problem
It was called Symbian.
TMSI is part of the SIM, not the I Mobile Equipment Id. It's only ever supposed to be sent when your device connects to a network it's never seen before. this would imply this company are operating picocells in shopping centres.
"security through obscurity"
one of the most overused phrases in IT.
Add mod_reqtimeout to your apache modules and watch it grind to a halt.
The MS / Accenture partnetship? Thought they did mobile apps
Yes but if you want to match the performance that C++ gives you you need to start using sun.misc.Unsafe
OAuth.. easy to use
Try implementing the protocol on a mobile device
They must have been desperate for the cash. Nokia arse-raped them when Symbian was canned
EMC is in Ovens, not Ballincollig.
Tvcatchup only shows their own ads before a channel loads, all other ads are those broadcast by the channel you're watching. I don't see the problem. Also, it seems to stream at 360p at best so it's hardly in direct competition to aerial broadcasts.
Re: Mac OS X in VirtualBox works great.
I found OSX in virtual box buggy, such as doing 'About this mac' causes me to be logged on. It's more effort but it works pretty much flawlessly under VMware player.
Re: He's right about hardware and driver issues
It's not a software patent that makes using wifi on my laptop for more than an hour panic the kernel.
Re: Linux Desktop ? Yes
Any monkey any type 'apt-get install cutemonkeylollipops', figuring out the last bit is the tedious part.
Also, the package name isn't necessarily the same as the program/library name. When you search for a windows program you inevitably have a download link right there in front of you. You missed the point of Linux not being suitable for non-techies and therefore will never succeed as an OSX/windows alternative for mum and dad.
I'm glad you're an apt-get expert, I hope it's on your cv. It'll be a useful skill to have until it's replaced by cutemonkeylollipops. My technical skills are up to scratch, don't worry about me pal.
Re: Linux Desktop ? Yes
Crunchbang? Really, who decided on that stupid name? This is also something that affects Linux adoption, the ridiculous names programs are given, names that tell you nothing about what they actually do.
I got back to using Linux after losing interest a few years ago, I run in in VMware player. Fine, I don't need it enough to faff around with drive partitions. It's a mess, too many distros, I don't know what they've done to grub but installing a custom kernel requires an unacceptable amount of googling. When I need to install some program i also need to google for the inevitable ridiculous name, and google or that apt-get command. Please, no non-techie would put up with this. Linux is geared towards programmers and system builders, it always will be.
I'm not a huge fan of OSX either, to be fair. It looks really nice, mostly. Win7 has it pretty much nailed
fly over antartica scattering rocks all over
It's the Apple iPi
The only good thing about html5 is that it's killing flash. My concern is that all these crap flash 'developers' will merely become crap html5 developers and my machine is going to pay the price.
MMB? LLAP? WTF?
Re: Godspeed, that man.
Wisdom teeth? Was that a joke or an actual requirement?
Surely they can copy job adverts where companies look for people with Python skills as proof of usage?
HFT is all about FPGA these days, don't see these cutting it
It's a bit of Beagle 2

As far as I can tell, VS2012 is Windows 8 only. Meh.
