Sorry, folks. But Nokia still plans to focus on patent trolling licensing. No new smartphones. Via +derStandard.at/Web

"Nokia reaffirms it currently has no plans to manufacture or sell consumer handsets"

[…]

"Nokia will retain its world-leading patent portfolio and Nokia’s previous FRAND undertakings remain in force."

I'm in the process of downloading the Photon ISO now (seems rather large BTW). In the mean time I'm browsing through the Photon github. What struck me at once is, exactly as Joe mentioned in this article, VMware seems to have gone out of it's way to repackage everything. How much of a clean slate they really have will be interesting to see, but it makes me wonder why?  Perhaps collaborating with other upstream communities makes more sense than NIH'ing everything.
I can understand the reasoning from VMware - wanting to control it's own destiny but maintaining an OS is a lot of work especially if you're not collaborating upstream. In the past VMware's model has been more of a consumer of open source than a contributor.
Speaking of which, I wonder how that GPL suit is going ...

It'll be interesting to watch this play out from the outside for a change.
Earlier this week, VMware launched its lightweight operating system tailored for running Linux containers. Naturally, I was interested to see what VMware was cooking up, since that’s the same target we have for Project Atomic. First, it’s great to see more interest in solving the problem of running Linux containers at scale. Even better, VMware seems to be interested in doing its work in the open. It’s always great to see companies that traditio...

2.5 years. Thanks, but no thanks. This is why I bought the Withings Activité. It runs on normal CR2025 batteries. 8 months on one battery.

"Apple has outlined that the Apple Watch battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity at 1000 complete charge cycles, which gives the watch's battery a lifespan of about two-and-a-half to three years based on fully charging the wrist-worn device once per day. "

Such a device is obsolete after one year, because the next and even fancier one is available. Apple only helps the stupid buyers, pushing them into the next model. They are just takin' care of their sheep.

"An Apple spokesman confirmed to WIRED that this was a mistake and the company has not changed its policy toward Pebble. The SeaNav update, and others rejected under similar circumstances, will be accepted, and the company does not plan to reject apps that support Pebble."

My private life is moving back into the analog world as my professional life gets as digital as it can get. 120 roll film and this heavy metal I just bought are proof. Mamiya RZ67. Eat that, digitalistas ;-)

People that buy expensive shit just to break it and post it on YouTube. No matter if Apple Watch, Samsung G6 or whatever. It's the waste producing equivalent of lighting up cigars with $100 banknotes.

When I was young, we did a lot to rescue the boat people from Vietnam. We welcomed them and they became part of our society. But nowadays we shrug when the new boat people from Africa and other countries drown in front of our coast. Progress? Makes me really sad. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnamese_boat_people
