They will only really be buying the Nokia name, there is nothing left of the former company worth having anymore, Microsoft have already destroyed it.

No TLS IMAP problems here, working fine as always,
I'm guessing the NotScript will be updated quite soon now Opera 11.10 is out. The Opera extensions API is still quite new, so I guess it's subject to change. That said I have no had any problems with mine (I only really use LastPass and a couple of others, I use the built in No Script).
The best browser just got better. Opera might not have the marketshare (due to minuscule budgets compared to the big boys), but it has the product.
I think of it like this. Opera is the reward for those smart enough to try things for themselves, rather than relying on what the TV/Newspaper/Internet tells them to use.
I have intentionally avoided downloading IE9 (it's only used as my backup browser on WIndows, Opera 11 being my preferred choice), I don't want Microsoft using my downloads in their PR statistics.
Someone out to tell Microsoft, that because they bundle IE as part of Windows, Downloads DOES NOT EQUAL USERS....
I wonder how many people downloaded it because it's part of Windows and you pretty much HAVE to have IE on your system so you might as well have IE9 which is definitely an improvement over IE8.
I downloaded it, but I won't be using it, Opera 11 rocks and beats all the other browsers hands down by a VERY long margin.
They got a Microsoft guy onboard, and now he is more than happy to take Nokia down the commercially suicidal road of WP it seems.
Android is their last-chance saloon.
Nokia make great hardware, they also have some skills to bring to the OHA, so lets hope that is what is happening. I really want to buy a Nokia smartphone, but I won't be unless it runs Android, simple as that.
Good to see Google forcing peoples hand. Right now you would be dumb to encode web video in H.264 when WebM is becoming so widespread.
This move signals WebM being the defacto standard for web video. I think I just heard Microsoft and Apple shit themselves.
Won't be long before H.264 HTML5 is removed from YouTube too, and WebM being the only option (in addition to flash, for the forseeable future at least).
We don't need licence hobbled codecs when there are better and more open options.
And wonga is what talks....
Half a billion of free wonga is up for grabs for anyone willing to talk nice things about Kinect and sweep the bad things under the carpet....
Is that why Xbox had a 18month headstart in which is amassed 9m console sales with nobody else competing, and the game between PS3 and Xbox is now only 400,000 units.
PS3 has clearly been outselling the Xbox by 3m or so units every year since launch. However looking at Microsofts weekly "tell you when it is, keep quiet when it isn't" spin would give a very different picture.
if you are a real developer, then you should be ashamed at your lack of technical knowledge of Android handsets.
Almost ALL android handsets have a dedicated GPU. The Desire, the Legend (which benchmarks even faster than the Desire), all the Samsungs and Motorolas.
Any handset made in the last 18months or so will have a dedicated GPU.
As for our Android development, we are making SUBSTANTIALLY more money from Android apps than iOS at the moment. It's gone ballistic over the last 6 months.
You can check out Mobile benchmarks here, rather relying on some Apple funded FUD.
You need to shop elsewhere. Brand new Blu-Ray releases are £15 or so ($20)
Inception Tripleplay, on Blu-Ray with a DVD and a digital copy, £15.
Don't you American Xbox fanboys feel embarrassed posting your tripe?
Simply abolish the Tax Disc, calculate the average motorist milage (say 8k per anum), and then add that to the cost of fuel.
Pay for what you use.
If you have a gas guzzler, you pay me
If you have something environmentally friendly you pay less
There is NO way to avoid to
There is no need to police it
There is no need for the vast majority of DLVA
Foreign drivers pay to use our roads
Motorists with more than one vehicle are not stung (e.g. Motorcycle and Car)
The upsides are many, the downsides are pretty much non-existant. (can anyone think of a valid one?). Just the amount of money saved in Government at the DVLA will bring a huge cost saving...
As long as the initial calculation of what increase in fuel duty is as a result of it is fair and truey reflects a average UK motorist in a average UK car doing a average UK annual milage, then I am totally in favor of this, and the sooner the better....
that are basing their opinions on what Opera looked like 5 years ago.
For your reference:
Rather than making yourselves look like clueless idiots, why not try it out.
I really don't care that much if you use it or not, but it's your loss. If you don't want to try it out, at least check out it's screenshots and features.
Tell me this does not look like Chrome:
And that these features don't put it right up there as the most powerful and fully features internet suite out there.
Not sure, but I doubt it. MP3 format was never designed to support gapless playback, there is no standard way to encode the data for players to know how to handle it.
iTunes can do it, but only if you buy your content from Apple, as they have control over both ends of the problem, the encoding process and the decoding process.
I believe some of the more modern codecs have specific methods of gapless encoding, but not MP3.
My applications already do this using their own bespoke setup (MyBackupPro for example). This system just allows everyone to do the same without writing lots of code and hosting your own authentication servers, Google will do all that for you.
I think this is win/win. It's a win for Developers, it's a win for Android consumers, it's a win for Google. Obviously the only people that will be upset are the pikey freeloaders.
But didn't bother, not because of the quality problems, but because it's overpriced and under-spec
The HTC Desire is twice the phone at half the cost.
I predict right now, 2014 the iPhone (if Apple if still around then), will be introducing desktop widgets in iOS...
"TraceMonkey speeds performance by detecting code loops and converting them into assembly language, a trick that Mozilla's competitors have yet to adopt."
Opera already does this, which is why it spanks everything else at Mozilla Dromaeo test
You don't have to use the Android Marketplace.
If you want to write apps specific to your business, and load them directly onto a Android handset, guess what, you can.... You want to use somes else's marketplace that hosts Android apps, you can.....
No Jailbreaking nonsense required. All android phones are Jailbroken from the outset (well almost, you need to tick the box in the settings that allows you to install apps from unknown sources).
