@vladkr

he's also the one that predicting that someone from MS will head nokia. and it's turn out to be right.

Peter

Tomi,

As I claimed right after 2/11/2011, Steven Elop has been on his vicious mission to destroy Nokia from inside because outside from USA can not bring nokia down.

As a CEO of Nokia, Steven Elop is not for the interests of nokia, nor for microsoft though he pretends to be, but for US Wall Street crooks whose who purpose is to destroy nokia.

With nokia sold phones powered by symbian and meego worldwide, FBI/CIA have no way to spy end mobile users.

nokia lost US market is not because of poor phones/services but for the sake of out of control from FBI/CIA.

Steven Elop is criminal/terroist to nokia investors but hero of Wall Street and FBI/CIA.

He is desintergating nokia and has already disrupted everything. Better execution ? forget about it. He will resign in the End of Q2, because mission has been finished.

Regards,
Peter

Steven is not selling nokia assets but is giving away at a rate of $1 for $100. Worse than declares BK right away.

Peter

Tomi,

You attempted again and again to rationalize the behavior of Steven Elop but failed to uncover the true reason.

As I claimed long long ago, he is on the mission of Wall Street to bring down nokia from inside.

Because all measures Wall Street has tried from outside failed. They blocked nokia access to US market 6 years ago, but China and India is much bigger than US. So simply nokia is not stoppable. That's why Steven Elop was hired into Nokia ac CEO to destroy it readily.

Thats it. Everything can be rationalized perfectly.

Regards,
Peter

That's also explained why media never criticize Steven Elop, the terroist of nokia investors. and why media is full of hatred of symbian and meego.

Peter

that's also explained why nokia has not waged patent war against Android. With 10,000 wireless patent in hand, nokia has done nothing. oh, yeah, granting license to mcrosoft for free, delivered thousands of key patents to candian company for free. hired a verizon ex-vice president sitting there gettting huge compensation for doing nothing, things can go on and on with no end.

oh yeah, hried ex-microsft marketing person Chris Web to stop selling of symbian phones and services to US consumer in Augs. when there is nothing to sell. Hey even nowadays, symbian smartphiones sold in US by third party exceeds Windows Phone 7.5.

...

@Peter : Nokia has nothing to do with FBI/CIA; if the latter want to spy the end-user, they just have to ask providers, that's it.

Then, if there is a need to check the content of a cellphone, any US DHS agent is allowed to take it, copy any data, and give it back to its owner only after anything has been checked (ie if data is encrypted, they'll give it back only after all data has been deciphered, whatever it takes), but most of time, they don't even need it and can access remotely.

Peter

vladkr ,

How about the location via GPS ? Carriers can not track end users from symbian and meego but do from Android and iOS.

@zlutor

That information for Qt5 is definitely out-dated, and Maemo / MeeGo won't be officially supported. More up-to-date information can be found here: http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/Qt_5.0

PERUS


well, I must say that this blog contains no longer interesting and informative story but just jokes, anti-elop propaganda and full of conspiracy theories.

Peter

PERUS ,

When your mission is uncovered, you always cover it with conspiracy theory or anti-semic if you go further.

But truth is truth. $160B loss of nokia investors is written on the wall. It is not because of wrong investment decision but Wall Street wants to rob their money via Steven Elop's criminal hand.

thats it.

Peter

@xizzhu

Don't QT support MeeGO?? I think it does ;) http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/Support_for_Maemo

Peter

Baron95 ,

keep distorting.

NavTeq is only jem left in Nokia.

Google doesn't have maps data, nor apple does.

Wall Street want to steal it from nokia for free.

Steven Elop said in 2/11, Samsung/Htc can use nokis maps(maps data + voice prompt turn-by-turn) for free via WP7.5.

Now he fire-sold location based service for FREE.


WHen both Google and Apple want NavTeq's data for exponential grwoing location based service, nokia is in upper hand in market.

However the crimal CEO of nokia want to DUMP it for free.

Tomi can raise serious questions but only I can find the reason.

Steven Elop is not micorosft Trojan Horse but Wall Street on mission to destory nokia from inside.

Thats it.

Regards,
Peter

OT, so Tomi will probably burn this, but still interesting to him. He's quoted as an authority in a Slashdot story about about the Nokia/WP fail. And by and large the by far most technically sophisticated community on the internet seems to agree that wp is stillborn.

Jonathan Lundén ,

yes, sir, WP7.5 is still born after nokia goes BK. that's it.

OIL and IT, two areas that makes US go to war. OIL can't be taken by economic war. There you need weapons. IT is simpler, if investors and the government work together they are able to defend US interest in the very important IT sector.

Buy nokia shares, insert a trojan. Sell shares and let the trojan do the job.

Peter

Baron95,

How do you value it at $2B ?

Given explosive growing of smarter phone/super phones, consumers are more and more dependent on location service from nokia 's map data.

if it worths $8B 4 years ago, it worth $16B or more today.

and nokia could let google/apple/microsoft to bid for it.

instead, Elop is going to fire-sale it because he is the Wall Street Trojan to destroy nokia from inside.

He has accomplished it 90%.

The only thing left is how to sell NavTeq fro free.

Regards,
Peter

Tomi T Ahonen

Hi vladkr, cygnus, Alex

Vladkr - yes, very good points. When he took over Juniper & Macromedia, rather than try to fix the troubled company, he set it up for sale. This seems to be his speciality and he seems to be up to the same tricks at Nokia

cygnus - ouch! Thanks for update on Qt. Yes he is on a mission

and on the maps side, interesting, I didn't notice that timing, I remember the change of the terms of the license yes. That sounds like very obvious action and reaction. I think we will see the same as Nokia now proceeds to sue its former partners (via proxy) with the patent trolls - which they will sooner or later countersue Nokia. More litigation, something Microsoft cherishes and Nokia of old had tried very hard to avoid.

Alex - good point my friend. I have noticed the very same curious phenomenon with some sites that I quite regularly follow. There seems to be a kind of 'ostrich' behavior of refusing to face facts, and going with the PR spin of Nokia HQ. Shame.

Tomi Ahonen :-)

You can unravel Elop's seemingly irrational moves by using this one metric - follow the money. He's running Nokia to extract maximum financial value as quickly as possible - not worrying about the longterm. Sell off any assets at the peak of their apparent value to others. Outsource as much as possible to convert all in-house overhead into expensed line items.

These tactics convert financial asset classes that require a lot of management and people resources to another financial asset class - cash - that requires much less management resources. All the company financial performance ratios improve as a result.

This can't be 'real'.

Microsoft Muppet Conspiracy...

I think so.
