Tomorrow I go to the Meego Summit FI in Tampere. I will talk there about Tracker, as usual, but this time sharing happily the stage with Adrien Bustany . The plan is to talk about what Tracker does NOW in a very pragmatical way, explain the limits we have hit, and give a hint on the more or less experimental ideas we have for the future
I guess neither Tomboy nor Tracker need much introduction. If you have both of them on your computer, you have probably wondered “why Tracker doesn’t index my Tomboy notes?”. Good point
I decided not to blog anything right after Nokia & Microsoft deal was published.
A new version of gPodder , a podcast downloader for Maemo 4 and Maemo 5 has been released.
I have been with Maemo since 2007, when I purchased the fabulous N800 Internet Tablet. It stayed with me through Chinook, Diablo and even through the ‘Elephanta year’.
So Nokia has dramatically reduced commitment to MeeGo and has cited,amongst other thinks, MeeGo’s inability to deliver a focussed baselinewith sufficient speed.
…now we need to let the dust settle. So, unless you’ve been living in a cave, you’ve probably heard about the Nokia news by now.
So it happened. Mr Elop decided to make financial geeks happy and disappoint all devoted Nokia fans at the same time by announcing “strategic partnership” with Microsoft. What struck me today in the morning, once such bold announcement has been made, is that no earlier than few months ago Mr Elop has been quite positive about future of Nokia in context of MeeGo in one of the interviews he gave.
There have been a lot of speculation and rumours since Nokia’s new CEO, Stephen Elop has chipped in his famous line “[Nokia] must build, catalyse or join a competitive ecosystem” . One of the latest and apparently “credible” rumour is that Nokia and Microsoft are going to join forces, leading Nokia to start offering Windows Phone 7 powered devices under their brand, possibly ditching their own platform(s) instead
