If I had never gotten an iPhone, I'd probably still be...nope would still have an iPhone.

That said, old Nokia's are still my favorite devices. Long battery life. Simple OS. Always got signal!

Lol, my favorite thing about nokia is how epically they fucked it up. Other than Molotov's cocktail, I can't name a Finnish thing marketed right.

Nokia got fucked so bad it's not even funny.

I was going to say Linux, but few actually know about it.

It didn't get fucked, it fucked itself. The examples of poor leadership we got from that will be in our text books for a century.

Linus is a genius. It's epic that he decided to keep his work free to explore and to develop. In my geekier days I had a poster of his (well, I told everyone it was his) hand on my dorm wall.
(that paragraph alone should tell you all why I needed advice in the first place!)

Sticking with Symbian instead of Android was a mistake. Apple and Google ethered them. High end Nokia hardware with Android would've been dope.


Did your friend every find a lead?

Lol!

The problems started about 7 years before that. Sadly they ran out of bravery when it came to putting new inventions out. It wasn't just symbian, it was them thinking everyone else would stop developing new ideas just because they had a nice slice of the pie.

Yes they did! My street cred in the awkward and nerdy crowd took a huge hit. I was a cast out as soon as that hit the irc and I had to start talking people irl. It was horrible.

Lmao. They had a slice of pie, thinking no one could make other pie. Many pies. Pies with different flavors. Cold pies, warm pies, and most importantly cream pies.

Fuck. Now I want pie.

You and I are so old we were here to witness the birth of the continentals. The kids in the internet these days can't even find their own houses without an app.

Well, Linux never was a big end user platform. You knowing about it gives us finns hope we some day manage to do something other great than get a Nobel for cow feed and for economics.

Don't forget about hockey and death metal. I'd award a double Nobel prize for those 2. I would be 50% of OT can name at least 2 Linux distros and 25% has run it at home for at least some period of time. C'mon people.

This was actually a disqualification test. Any nerds who name distros are out!

We like to call it playing with passion and not having the right medication!
As for hockey, let's get back to this when we have a good team again.

Yeah, I can name five and I've ran three. I have one currently too, but I am old, and a bit of a geek! The others here are young hot studs with playboy bunnies climbing on them!

This jogged my memory. I remember this geek giving me some CDs--because my coworker gave me a free tower pc, but it was not powerful enough to run DOS 6.21. He said try this you'll like it, written on the discs were FreeBSD.

Hockey is simply the best sport, bar none. It encompasses so much, both physically and emotionally. Fred just doesn't get this....

Fred can be a little bitch... probably because he is not Finnish... well, sometimes when you are Russian, he is Finnish a little early... but... yeah...
I am truly sorry for that stupid joke. I could not resist.

It is safe to say I've ruined the image. This is why Swedish chicks don't use internet.

Hey now, don't be so hard on the Finnish people (can't believe I'm saying this) - you also developed the Hakkapellita winter tire which rocks. That's another checkmark for Finland as far as I'm concerned.

And Lups - even you are valuable - don't ever forget that. Your organs would fetch a good price on the market. Even us insignificant people have that going for us.
