I like Nokia phones; I’m used to them, they’re generally quite innovative and they earn mucho brownie points for having a standard charging cable*. And the UI is generally good.
But all that’s is beside the point now, because it looks like I’ll have to buy from different manufacturers in future. Because *spit* Greenpeace *spit* like Nokia.
Boo hiss. Why, oh why, can’t Nokia be evil, planet-killing bastards? I’d feel much happier buying their products if they were…
Hat tip to el Reg.
* – The first cable I got (in the dark days of 1999) worked right uptil I got the N91 this year; seven years is a long time to stay with a standard.
I didn’t give up on Nokia because they went green, I gave up on Nokia because they’re crap – in just about every way – well actually it’s because I discovered Sony Ericssons – much better phones in so many ways.
I’m looking for a new phone at the moment and can’t decide whether to wait for the Apple iPhone or not – might be a good one for you, especially if its made by the same Chinnese companies that make the iPod.
And Apple are right at the bottom of the chart – see why I like them so much?
Ah, but my problem is that I detest Apple, and I hate the carefully managed cult that has sprung up about it.
Basically, I’d rather give my money to Fidel Castro than Steve Jobs.
You’re only cutting off your nose to spite your face.
Maybe so, but I think my finacncial stake in the future of Cuba will see me through.
