Here’s an interesting video with Stephen Elop and Josh Topolsky from The Verge. The usual stuff but points of interest: Nokia numbering system. When Nokia talked about it it seemed it would stay between 1-9. Josh jokes about the 1000. Elop says he doesn’t know how high it could go, i.e. there’s no limit. Nokia Lumia […]

I have actually got two mods to share with you today, both relating to the browser. The first alters a few settings that change the default action when opening a file. (This applies to the browser, as the browser “opens” files not necessarily saving them. Apparently the file manager saves them.) I have altered the […]

We have seen a few China Clones of the Nokia N9. One in particular had Android Buttons and could mimic various OS styles. However the implementation of the hardware buttons looked dreadful. Whilst these Android buttons are still a bucket of yuck, they’re slightly better and overall the clone is a much better job as […]

Windows Phone. What’s in the name?

I have been talking to people a lot about Windows Phone and what they think about what Windows Phone is is shocking me at times.
