Quick Nokia rant

Man Nokia pisses me off sometimes. It produces amazing phones like my very cool E71 and then insists that I use Windows to do little things like update my phone’s firmware! I use a MacBook as my day to day machine and with the exception of issues I have had with failing and failed hard drives and questionable support up the line (although C3, my preferred provider, has been awesome – they just have their hands tied by the morons they have to look to if they want to get stuff done) it has been the best experience I have had with a computer.

The only issue is that Nokia seems to think I should be punished for using a Mac (or anything other than Windows because if I couldn’t use a Mac for some reason, I would be running Ubuntu). Why, oh why, has Nokia not produced a version of its software updater for the Mac???!! Does Microsoft have something on Nokia? Some skeleton in the closet? Preview images of a hideous handheld Nokia can’t afford to have released into the marketplace?

Why does Nokia hate me (and every other non-Windows user)?

  4. I took a look at the video comments in Safari 3.2 and the control to play the video (the play icon) was actually placed above this post for some crazy reason so I didn't see a way to play the video. I wonder if this is a WP theme issue or a bug in the Seesmic plugin (either on its own or because of its integration with or alongside Disqus).

  9. All mac users download the new updated version of Nokia Media Transfer v1.3 and it supports the E71. You have the possibility to sync your bookmarks with safari, add photo's to iphoto and even create your own play list in itunes.

What do you think?
