Nokia Not Going to Make It

2 Years ago, Nokia was a market leader in the smartphone business. Today, they are nothing but a blip. Many including me have predicted that the new "Windows Phone" strategy was ill-fated. Recent financials seem to confirm that.

Nobody seems to want a Windows Phone, and it doesn't take a genius to figure out why. Windows just isn't that popular anymore.

I have nothing much to say about Nokia other than it's been nice knowing you. I don't expect to see you next year, bye.

Microsoft Posts It's First Loss

There is a first time for everything. Microsoft just posted it's first loss since becoming a public company in 1986. In a way I kind of feel bad for them. They bet the farm on .NET in early 2000, and looks like things haven't gone according to plan. Perhaps it's time to rethink that .NET strategy.

.NET is Going Away

I've have been saying for years that anyone investing time, money, or skills in .NET was foolish.  I feel no sympathy for any .NET developer who will one day find themselves obsolete.
