Microsoft stops collecting own mapping data, sends 100 Bing engineers to Uber

Microsoft stops collecting own mapping data, sends 100 Bing engineers to Uber

| July 1, 2015 | Reply

Uber is on a roll bolstering their mapping efforts. Their business is all about location. This move along with bidding for Nokia’s HERE solutions means less reliance on Google and greater room to grow and stretch their lead, especially when it comes to business outside of Uber’s traditional driver/taxi service. i.e. self driving cars, same day […]

Which do you prefer name wise? Windows Camera or Lumia Camera?

Which do you prefer name wise? Windows Camera or Lumia Camera?

| June 29, 2015 | 5 Replies

Nokia Camera became Lumia Camera under Microsoft. Now there’s Windows Camera. Is that replacing Lumia Camera or Microsoft Camera? Also…is this simply so all Windows Devices can use that camera app (i.e. Surface) or for other brands? What does this mean for Lumia? I think possibly just having one unified interface would be best. We […]

The likes of the LG G4 and S6, fair play to them, are giving some fantastic pictures and what […]

Nokia had four tablets in the canned mix

Nokia had four tablets in the canned mix

| June 20, 2015 | 12 Replies

Nokia had plenty of ‘internet tablet’ family members. But as to newer, larger tablets to compete with iPad, until their N1 and the Lumia 2520 there wasn’t anything but a magical wait of ‘when would Nokia make their tablet’. When it’s too late of course. Anyway, according to @evleaks, there were at least four more. […]

TheRegister says Nokia’s demise wasn’t Elop’s Fault, TheVerge asks what will Elop Steal Next?

| June 19, 2015 | 21 Replies

An Editorial from TheRegister actually has Stephen Elop’s back. I think it’s interesting to mention this perspective given that Elop is synonymous amongst many Nokia fans and Finns as the “Trojan Horse” sent from Microsoft. Andrew Orlowski feels that blaming Elop is, “chauvinistic nonsense, which seeks to transfer blame away from years of complacency and […]

The latest will they, won’t they is of course Nokia coming back to smartphones. In the past Nokia has constantly denied rumours only for them to become true, e.g. coming back to devices…no..no..no…here’s the N1 guys. Well that might be shortening a more complicated story but nobody’s got time for that full recap. Manager-Magazin.de reports […]

TheVerge have an editorial by Vlad about how Microsoft has put the nail on Nokia’s coffin. With the exit of Elop and Harlow, Vlad says: Any glimmer of hope that Nokia wouldn’t be subsumed into the Microsoft monolith and would continue along its own path, albeit under a different name, has today been extinguished.

Terry Myerson is getting this even bigger responsibility, essentially the next top guy after Nadella, […]
