Conspiracy is just conspiracy. Are you sure?

This is proving fact for what I wrote a few years back at

Microsoft bought Nokia with €5.44 billion which some people-who like Symbian and some of Finnish people-already guessed this will happen when the formal Microsoft CEO, Stephen Elop joined company.

Created Equal: A Study of Social and Cultural Clashes by Mark Laita – interesting idea but…

I've got news from Black+White photography facebook page. Here is their introduction:

Exploring the differences and clashes between social groups, Mark Laita's book Born Equal presents a series of thought provoking diptychs:

I think it was very interesting idea. Of course, he took photos very nicely and some of the photos looked like came from real world.
But when I look at the some of the photos, I felt it doesn't look like real. Or I think someone coordinate the clothes and props. Or he purposefully choose look very ugly(or too nice) one for comparison's sake.
It was just how I feel. It doesn't mean I was right.

This is the reason internet is the future and it will bring equality to human society.

Public domain, open source project, creative commons, etc. These kind of things I will talk about here, too.

That's what I believe.

your only limitation is imagination, not equipment. by Bruce Barnbaum

"Let's proceed with the assumption that your only limitation is imagination, not equipment."
quote from the book "The Art of Photography: An Approach to Personal Expression" by Bruce Barnbaum

I know he was trying to explain about how light will affect a photograph so what I am saying here isn't really against what he says.

"Your only limitation is imagination." That is truth. So it doesn't need any assumption.

So I googled with that sentence and I can find so many quotes there. If you think that equipment need to assumption, you have to think about it again.

Think about this: What is equipment? It's a tool. So what you can do with a tool? Yes, you can use it for whatever you desire. So how can I use the tool is my problem. Isn't it?

So it doesn't need any assumption. You can just say "Let's remember that your only limitation is imagination, not equipment."

p.s. I thought about this to my other blog thinking differently but I changed my mind. Because so many people believe (not just think) that equipment or tool matters for their creativity and artistic skills. This is the thing that I will write about here.

How that place was beautiful? I can't see it.

It could be sarcasm but I don't see how that place was beautiful.

Mobypicture user Ancilla Tilia uploaded photo with this: Our shooting location Oudewater is so beautiful!

I can imagine that house looked pretty but I have absolutely no idea how beautiful that was. Because I've never been there.

Because it doesn't have any natural and real color in it.

So I had to googling about it: oudewater – google image.

And I found this photo which was almost same site: Havenstraat, Oudewater by JohanBakker

I couldn't know why is beautiful until I found a real photo of place

Can't you see the problem with iPhone?

This is the reason why I liked Nokia but….

Symbian is open platform and Nokia always trying to help local community especially developing countries. And there has so many other reason that why I like Nokia.

For example, Nokia cares about environment like this Putting a ban on conflict metals @ August 26, 2010 by Saara and was supporting this kind of event Conspiracy For Good.

But Nokia gave up the Symbian platform.

But Nokia threw away the Symbian platform. And it seems to me that Nokia strategic changed to go after money only. It calls 'profit'.

So I was not interested in Nokia phone anymore.

It's time to move on.

So I have to choose other platform from WebOS, Android or Meego because I am not interested in closed platform like iPhone or Window Phone 7.

What choice do I have? I thought about go for Meego (or WebOS) platform but it wasn't ready yet. So I choose other open platform-Android.

So I have bought Milestone smartphone and Enspert's Identity Tab E201 which was Android tablet.

So I'll probably talk about the Android vs. Symbian later on.

Rome was just made up within one day?

It was an issue so I thought about to write at my tumblr What really Nokia need.
But this post's main theme was important for this blog, too. So I will write it here.

Image via Wikipedia

There have too many speculation about MeeGo. Why?

MeeGo was merge project from Nokia's Maemo project and Intel's Moblin project. I know it was already progress a lots but it still need a lot of time.
And open source project can't just get good result like FireFox project or OpenOffice project within one year. It will take much of time.

I found that OpenOffice project was starting around July 2000 which Sun's StarOffice source code was released. So how long does it take to the commercial stage?

MeeGo was starting around in this February or later. MeeGo's welcome post was Welcome to MeeGo @ February 15, 2010 by Imad.
So it was just 6 or 7 month in development and people are crying and crying (especially who?) about Nokia wasn't release the MeeGo device.

So this very reason Nokia will not officially support MeeGo to N900 because commercial device can't support to "Beta stage's operating system". It's that simple.

MeeGo's official blog was posted this: MeeGo calling – on N900 @ October 13, 2010 by Harri Hakulinen.
I haven't read whole thing but I noticed that MeeGo was open source project so if many people join and want to do something, MeeGo will support it. Because that's what open source is all about.
But I don't think people notice about it. That's why some people thought that MeeGo official blog says MeeGo will support N900 which means Nokia must support officially N900 on MeeGo.

So some people asked to Nokia whether Nokia N900 will support MeeGo.

Here is what I've got tweet from @thenokiablog
UPDATED: Nokia N900 dual boot will not be an option to consumers
about 20 hours ago via Echofon

That tweet's link is this: Nokia N900 PR 1.3 Update Coming Soon With Dual Boot to Meego @ October 13, 2010 by Mark Guim

Don't confuse about this, please.

I am not saying it was people's fault. I am saying Nokia didn't properly telling to the people about MeeGo. That's what this all kind of rubbish speculation was came out.

What if Nokia was telling people like this "commercial product can't sell with Beta Stage of Operating System like MeeGo" and other things like "open source project usually takes a time for out of beta stage".
Don't you think people will understand better?

Talk about originality of design. It proves how biased mobile tech web and geeks were.

American-based company Apple's Macbook Pro and Nokia N9

Engadget's article Nokia N9: the MacBook Pro Phone @ August 19, 2010 by Thomas Ricker said

What was it that Anssi Vanjoki said? Something like, "If there is something good in the world then we copy with pride."

And most of the people commented about Nokia's copy of design. It was not just a few people because that article has 217 comments.

Here is the truth about copy of design.
Photo taken from Dear Engadget, who is copying who? [updated] @ August 19, 2010 by Engadget Sucks

Seriously. Who is copying who?

So if they were the gadget expert(That is why they were the writer of Engadget, right?), they must know about Sony Vaio notebook computer. But they simply dismiss it.
Or they don't know anything about gadget?

American-based company Motorola's Flipout and Nokia Twist

In contrast, Motorola almost copy the design from Nokia but nobody talks about it.

I've got news from @bperry
amazing how similar the AT&T Motorola Flipout looks to the VZW Nokia Twist

Photo taken from Engadget's article AT&T-branded Motorola Flipout released… on eBay @ September 24, 2010 By Chris Ziegler

There has 35 comments and almost none of people were talking about similarity of Nokia Twist.

This is a photo of Nokia Twist.

Engadget's readers really concern about originality of design but strangely they don't even bother about it. Why?

Does Nokia really know their strength?

When I know about Nokia N8 has 2 microphones, I was surprised that Nokia really knows about what is really important in video recording.

Because when I researched about video podcast for digital video camcorder, number one advice is that must get the good audio. That’s what all they saying because most of device’s video quality is good enough for web video.

This is Nokia N8 vs iPhone 4 video test which you will recognize about audio.

[via BesteProduct]

Nokia N8's audio makes totally different so audio makes exceptional. But does Nokia know about this?

Nokia made totally awesome product but marketing department doesn’t know what to do with it?
