"Nokia says he had wored as a Marketing Manager in the networking unit."
Is there missing an h or a k in your translation?

Tomi T Ahonen

haha missing H or K.. 'whored as a marketing manager' is priceless... yeah, my k on the keyboard is a bit tricky, sometimes it won't show, so I have to hit the k letter a bit harder now.. anyway, thanks for typo, I obviously corrected it. But the 'whored' got me laughing...

Tomi :-)

Well, you know the old tactic: If you can't attack the message, attack the messenger. That always works.


I still remember your long argument with Doug Dawson and whatsisname on Twitter, where they attacked your blog for being "completely wrong" and not backing up their statements with anything. I guess they haven't been fired yet...

Also, typo in paragraph 7: "...Marketing unit at Nokia from 200 to 2001."


From 200 to 2001, now that's a LOT of experience!


Is it possible that the newspaper journalist got it all wrong?

Interested to know

Tomi, are any of the Nokia people taking responsibility for this disaster?


Nokia has a working android lumia:

Too bad we will never see it.


Hi Tomi,

Would have been great to know you were in the neighborhood of Oulu, I'd have come to say hello at least!

Take a look on the Finnish newspapers describing the recent actions around Nokia (from 2.9. onwards), it really looks like a white-wash to me, putting the fall on the shoulders of Ollila, while Microsoft strategy is sidelined - and on top of that, Microsoft is a rescuer as it buys the troubled Nokia.

This all is really strange, and if you were critical of exactly Elop's actions, I wouldn't find it surprising that you are downplayed. However, I'd say that most of the people do realize what is happening, and occasionally the message Finnish media is trying to play looks quite ridiculous. Apparently, finlandization of our media never ended.

Of course, there is also a possibility of press being wrong, but they usually do get the titles right.


Congratulation Tomi!!!!
It means you were successful.

I bet Elop/Nokia were pissed a lot when they hearing someone say "Tomi said... "

{{Nokia is once again attempting to play dirty in its squabbles with me. I thought they were past this, with Elop removed from the post of CEO.}}

Nokia is still a de facto Microsoft entity, so even if Elop is gone, other ex-Microsoftie cronies and shills remain. Chris Weber is one of them.

Microsoft is a dirty, classless company. Go compare Nokia's product ads before Windows/Elop and after Windows/Elop. A lot of the Nokia Lumia commercials take potshots at Apple and Samsung... as if a 3-4% market share 'third ecosystem' is really a rival.

Nokia's ads became cheesy and tyrannical after Windows/Elop, no doubt inspired by Microsoft's similar attack ads such as Scroogled, Googlighting Stranger and Gmail Man. I won't be surprised if they were all done by the same Microsoft ad agency.

How they attack their 'competitors', they also attack in the same way those detractors who say anything not so flattering about Microsoft's products and services.



@Tomi: How does it influence chances of Jolla&Sailfish to become relevant player?

Personally I think it is a huge achievement...
