Not so easy to disprove

Tzer2, I fully agree that all this scaremongering from the AV companies is terrible, but on the other hand be careful about thinking that their statements can be easily disproved. Don't underestimate...

Please, don't

From the article, regarding plans for Symbian^4:
"Nor does it preclude another company or Symbian Foundation contributor creating an alternative application framework and UI layer (e.g for low end...

Nothing simple there

I see what you mean. From the point of view of possibilities, Symbian as a stand-alone OS managing the whole PC is certainly something else entirely than the emulator which can do nothing without the...

Not really new

Symbian^1 is running on x86 since many years. Anybody who does more than trivial programming for Symbian uses the emulator which is part of the SDK and which from a technical point of view is nothing...

They lost their marbles

I was really surprised about all the emotions that this new logo was able to evoke in me. For quite some time, I was alternating between thinking "That can't be true", "This is completely ridiculous"...

Hackers also don't like it

A quite funny - and reveiling - quote from the linked article about "Crackulous":



As the developer of a Windows shareware, I came more or less to the same conclusion as Ewan in this article....

Ignore Unregistered

Uh, if I look at the quite lengthy posts that Tzer2 wrote in attempts to refute this "Unregistered" I think this is not quite true at the moment.

But I agree, one probably should just ignore...

Other times, other devices

Yes, all those Symbian/S60 standard applications have been written for phones way past, with much less RAM, smaller screens and slower CPUs than today's phones, certainly than the Pre now. That's one...

Not so difficult

First, I am sceptical whether the Symbian Foundation ever really intended to use *actual* UIQ code; some quite serious technical problems could get in the way and eat up any "win" from using the...

Motive?

Could you please be so kind and add a plausible motive for this person to spend considerable time and quite possibly money to try all these random phone numbers? Explanations like "There are just...

No easy buffer overrun on Symbian

I don't know whether you do Symbian programming, but probably not, because you hardly would issue such a statement if you did.

To a Symbian programmer, it's pretty clear what very probably happens...

How does that work, exactly?

Interesting. Can you give details? How does this "tap and hold" work there, excactly? And where does WM offer this behaviour? Generally, for every interface element, or only for list boxes?

For...

It's not so easy

Well, I was thinking about that as well, but I am quite sure that any "tap and hold" solution will have to overcome one very serious handicap:

You will have to work with a defined delay: Tap i.e....

Single tap / double tap

Thanks for the good and detailed description of the "single tap versus double tap" problem.

Coming from UIQ I know this problem well. UIQ had decided to make *everything* single tap - if it reacts...

Already two were too much

Looking at the performance of SE in the last few years, I come to the conclusion that even managing *two* OS's (proprietary feature phone + UIQ) seemingly was too much for SE's management. The had a...

Available Symbian apps

I tried to get some hard facts instead of only speculations, but this turned out to be not so easy:

With the N95 as the device given Handango currently lists 7994 applications, but I think that...

Yes, the blog post on tube5800.com does contain a number of inaccurate statements, but why then do you increase their number here? According to my research that I did preparing this post,...

I have read that "mess" argument quite a few times already in connection with Nokia's 5th edition touch-enabled smartphones, but so far not one poster cared to elaborate: What it the mess, exactly?

That's the easy part, the really easy part - being sick, I mean. But what will you do? It would be interesting to learn how you intend to shop for your next phone.

And, if it turns out that there...

Well, yes of course, they must just release the perfect phone, like Apple did, at least in the eyes of some fans...

As for the testing: I came to the conclusion that for most tech companies, for...

No new UIQ3 models whatsoever is a little surprise

I understand that UIQ clearly has no long-term future, and that this means sooner or later there will be no more need for UIQ as a company.

But what surprises me is that there will be no more new...

Android would be possible, with Google's blessing

Android is based on Linux, and it's correct that right now no other API is public than the Java-based one, but it's possible that Google would open their C++ based API to somebody really important....
