N90 egg-on-face time?

May 27, 2010

No one enjoys egg-on-face time, but sometimes you just have to take it on the chin, as it were.


Ah, the irony

November 26, 2009

Who knows what goes on in the head of the Googlempire, but one things for sure, its about (making) the money, stupid! Still, between poor developer relations and the problems of a so-called open market, Android may struggle to make the impact many are predicting. The controlled eco-system of the iPhone has fundanmental advantages for developers – the App Store works, I trust what I buy there, I know it will work on my device – even if getting an app in there can sometimes be difficult. So closed is open, and open is closed.

Untouchable iPhone

October 21, 2009

I’ve had an iPhone for a couple of months now. I can honestly say it has changed my life for the (very much) better. It is insanely fantastic. I just don’t see anyone catching it anytime soon. That sentiment seems to be increasingly shared. Android may be a match eventually, but it will probably be at least another 12 months. Palm webOS? Forget it. Interesting that Nokia don’t seem to have a clue what to do about this market. Of course they should back Android and really push it, but they seem content to do nothing. Echos of Microsoft missing the web. Quite frankly, I think I’m becoming a serious Apple fanboy … I want a Mac.
