Nokia’s smartphone products has been on the decline (in popularity) since 2009.  Blame that to marketing and the company’s complacency.

Since Nokia announced in February 2011, that its smarphones will adapt the Windows Phone OS, I have been eagerly anticipating what smartphones will come out from the Finnish phone company.  Of course everyone already knows about the Sea Ray, but I’m still looking forward to more ‘Win-Kia’ phones.

Anyways, a lot have already been reported on the net.  At the end of the day, I still want a Nokia phone to replace my old ones… I already am sold to getting the Meego running Nokia N9 – I am getting the Black one and a blue one. But I am also getting me a Windows phone made by Nokia.  It may or may not be the ‘out-ted’ Nokia Sea Ray, but as long as it’s made by Nokia, has a front facing-camera, and a native VOIP/SIP support, I’m sold. 🙂

While waiting for my next Nokia phone, I will kill time watching some ads about my next smartphone…

The Mojave experiment, the "new" Microsoft Operating System

The Mojave experiment, the "new" Microsoft Operating System

 MOJAVE pronouced: mə-ˈhä-vē, mō-

  • a member of the North American Indian people formerly living in the Colorado river valley in Arizona and Nevada and California
  • a desert area in southern California and western Arizona
  • Mohave: the Yuman language spoken by the Mohave
  • Codename of Microsoft’s “new” operating system.

Windows Vista, is arguably the most despised (by critics, fan-boys or wannabe’s) operating system Microsoft has developed. In an attempt to re-educate the “mis-informed”, re-vitalize the image of Windows Vista against skeptics and eventually instill acceptance, mostly from Windows XP users who are afraid to migrate due to incompatibility issues brought about by Vista.

On a personal note, I can say I am one of the early adapters of Windows Vista. I was part of the technical BETA testers of the then codenamed, Longhorn operating system.

I never had any problems with Microsoft Vista. All of the programs I use are compatible with it. The only two incompatible hardwares I have are my Linksys WPC54GX and WMP54GX v2 that Vista Ultimate 64-bit version refuses to identify. It is not Microsoft’s fault, though. It’s Linksys’. Linksys, up to now will not come up with 64-bit drivers on Vista and even mostly on Windows XP 64-bit edition.

The most appalling thing is that Linksys support told me that they do not see any reason to release any 64-bit drivers for their adaptors! Hell, even during the BETA stage of Longhorn, Linksys’ official statement was that 64-bit drivers are to be announced soon.

Now this is one concrete example why potential consumers are mis-informed about Windows Vista. They readily blame Microsoft who is not at fault here, rather than pin the blame on the hardware manufacturers that turns a blind eye to its consumers.

If any of you has a working 64-bit driver specifically for these two adapters, please leave a comment. You may also help Microsoft by informing working or non-working hardware/software by visiting the Windows Compatibility Center 🙂

I’m sure some of you may react negatively to this as my attempt to promote Windows Vista – I don’t care 😛 What I know is that, Microsoft does its best to reach out to its consumers.

I’m proud to have partaken in its early stages of developtment. I am proud of that opportunity.
